Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wouldn't recommend. Food over cooked and dry. Fried rice in pineapple tasted like curry. Definitely more Indian then Thai. Very disappointed 😞

This is a restaurant on the main road of southern Broadbeach. The food was very good, the atmosphere was casual and nice with both indoor and alfresco dining, and the staff were attentive and helpful.

Wow, its not often a place with great reviews turns out to be not so great. This was one of those places unfortunately. We are huge lovers of Thai food, eat it weekly, this did not seem traditional at all. Husband had a pad see...ew, the rice egg noodles were chopped up into 1.5cm pieces? He described it as what we used to feed our son when he was a baby so he wouldnt choke. Pad Thai had a sourness to it which Ive never encountered before, I ate a quarter of it and left the rest, the flavours are not traditional at all, no depth of flavour. Potentially new owners because these good reviews seem like they were a while ago. 2 stars were for the interesting decor, and effort from staffMore

Went to this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor high rating. Very disappointing with the quality of the food . Both our entrees were served within minutes of ordering , we’re obviously not fresh but reheated with the money bags still cold in the middle but...hot on the extremities . The other entree certainly looked and tasted stale . I ordered the crispy skin duck for a main . It was dry , relatively tasteless and tough to chew . Worst duck I can remember having at a Thai restaurant . My suspicion is that it was not prepared that day . The only dish that was remotely acceptable was the Massaman beef curry . I would not recommend this restaurant . We travel regularly and dine out a lot . It’s not often I find a restaurant unsatisfactory enough to write a review but this one should not have the high rating it has onTripAdvisorMore

I knew from the "warm greeting" when we arrived it was going to be a nice night.... it certainly did not disappoint. The food was excellent, particularly the Pineapple Fried Rice that was recommended to us by the Maitre'D. We had a lovely waitress looking...after us who also advised us on certain dishes all were exceptional. Our family have a lot of options living near the centre of the Coast but we will look forward to returning back to Iyara. Thanks again to the wonderful staff !!More

We were invited by friends who had been there before and raved about the meals. We were not disappointed as what we had was beautiful. It's true you may have to wait a while, but considering the amount of people dining it is understandable. The...staff are great and helpful and will go out of there way to explain the meals. So glad we found this place and we will be back as there are lots of dishes that we are looking forward to trying.More

Disappointing given some other positive reviews. Arrived for 8 pm booking when place was largely full. Was a Saturday night. At 9 just as I was about to order dessert I was the last there. Without asking for it I was handed the bill and...told that they were closing. I had the basil chilli duck stir fry. The veggies and sauce were good but the duck was dry and stringy. I told the waitress this but got no response. Maybe just unlucky with choice of dish?More

We visited as a family of 3 generations and were all really pleased with our experience. We were warmly greeted by a gentleman whom I assume was the owner. We ordered several dishes to share and weren’t disappointed with any of them. All were served...promptly and hot, and were full of flavour. Prices were reasonable and we would certainly return.More

We visited here on our last night as it was right beside our accommodation. The food was nice but the older maitre'd (man) was quite condescending and rude when we were ordering. We ordered by number as often this is preferred but he made us...say the name of the dish, some of which weren't easy to pronounce correctly which is why the number would have been easier. It was the way he spoke that we considered rude and if you don't want customers to order by number what purpose do the numbers have on the menu???More

All we can say is WOW!! The service is impeccable, very warm and welcoming, the owner is on the floor and is one of the most gracious hosts we've ever met. All of the staff are welcoming, polite and friendly, they ensure you feel at...home! The food is absolutely incredible, fresh, flavourful and plentiful. Tonight was our second visit within our week's holiday, we cannot wait to come back on our next Gold Coast getaway!! The massaman beef curry was amazing and the chicken satay sticks are like heaven on earth! This is the best Thai food we've ever had (including in Thailand!!) Thank you for our second wonderful evening, we'll see you again next time!! 5/5 stars, Iyara Thai is a must if you are on the Gold Coast!!!More
