If you go to Cairns do not miss a visit (or two) to Iyara. The two chefs mum and Aunty are simply masters at serving modern Thai cuisine at its best. We dined twice on our week long holiday and had around 8 dishes on the menu. All absolutely divine. We couldn’t fault any of them. Serving size is great, flavours pack a punch and the presentation is stunning.

We have dined all over the world and in Thailand at Thai restaurants and this rivals all of them!

5 star ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Food and service in a great atmosphere and location on the esplanade looking out over the harbour.

Definitely dine here or you’ll miss out!

Absolutely stunning authentic Thai food. Could not fault any dish that we had. I dined here twice during my stay in Cairns and both times Iyara delivered. Cannot recommend this place enough. If you want fantastic Thai food, dont worry about the others, Iyara is the place to go. A+++

This is the only restaurant I make sure to visit at least once every couple weeks... the food is absolutely incredible (best Thai in all of Cairns hands down)... I recommend the curry puffs, beetle leaf and beef masaman. Everything on the menu is full of flavour, the ingredients are extremely fresh and high quality, and the food is consistent every time.

Sakare the owner is absolutely amazing, she cares so much for the food and makes us feel like family every visit.

I also recommend ordering a cocktail, they are divine! The Tom yum soup cocktail is really unique and tasty, I recommend trying it for something different to pair with your meal.

I have taken so many people to this restaurant and everyone falls in love with it. Highly recommend this amazing place!!
