Where we sat

Our table was inside, and at the back of the restaurant. It was not a pleasant experience at all. So you will want to avoid seats/tables here.

Tables inside the restaurant, at the back. Avoid them.

Eating inside the restaurant but in the back section is like booking and paying for First class tickets and accepting a seat in Third! You will regret agreeing to sit here and you will not enjoy the food no matter how delicious and you will not be satisfied by the service no matter how great.

Tables inside the restaurant but in the front or near the entrance is really the BEST place to be.

There are 3 beautiful canopy seats that the service staff say are called the Booths. There are just 3: Booths 1, 2 and 3.

The Booths can be reserved but not on the weekends, said a service staff gleefully.

The Sofa seats/area are the second best choice of tables inside the restaurant.

Because we got a table in the “lousy” section, our experience in this restaurant is a bit tainted. But if we are truthful, the food was delicious and we had no complaints about the food. Even the service staff were wonderful and helpful.

If you want to completely enjoy a meal in this place, just remember to book a table in the front of the restaurant first. Where you end up sitting inside this restaurant matters greatly!


The food is a bit expensive, we think. Soup, like the popular Tom Yum Goong, is over ₱400! ₱420, if I’m not mistaken. It’s just soup, for heaven’s sake.

All prices on the menu are subject to 5% Service Charge and 12% VAT.

Opening Hours

Nara Thai Cuisine is open everyday, from 11:00 am till 10:30 pm.

Will we go back to Nara Thai Cuisine?

… within the next 3 months? No.

… within the next 6 months? No.

… within the next 12 months? Highly unlikely.

… within the next 2 years? Yes, for the delicious food.
