HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY FROM YAI'S THAI KITCHEN!
We would like to say Happy Mother's Day to our beloved grandmother, Yai, of whom we named this restaurant after. Also, Chef Ead, who is such a driving force for our restaurant here at Yai's, as well as a wonderful mother. We also want to honor the other two lovely mothers in our family, Lam and Oud: happy mother's day!
We will be closed on Easter Sunday and resume normal business hours on Monday. Thank you for stopping by and we apologize for any inconvenience!
Yai's Thai Kitchen
The opening of Beauty and the Beast this weekend has us all excited! Chef Ead decided to amp up her dumpling game to make beautiful and yummy pork dumpling roses to coincide with the movie premiere. The same deliciousness with our regular pork dumplings, but the beast of it all: they are fried!
We are so excited to try out a few new desserts! While we are trying to decide, these two desserts are while supplies last!
CHOCO SPONGE+ICE CREAM

Happy Valentine's Day from Yai's!
And to make this day even more special, we've added a few dishes for today!
The best dish to add to today? Chicken Jungle, of course, our guest favorite!

We are celebrating this Christmas holiday with the staff tonight! Just closing an hour earlier at 8pm, we hope it's not an inconvenience to anyone! We understand being denied delicious Thai food can be such a bummer, but we will open regular hours tomorrow!
While we're crossing our fingers that this cold season will actually, well, be cold, we want to focus our appetite to some hot soups. One of our hot bowls that's getting some attention is our delicious Wonton Soup.
We make the pork filling in house, as well as we assemble the wontons ourselves. When we say "we," it's actually Chef Ead who makes these wontons by hand on a daily basis. In Thailand, the pork wontons are called kiao, and the wonton soup is called kiao nam. A very popular soup in Thailand, kiao nam has become a staple on our menu. We serve this hot and yummy soup filled with bean sprouts, napa cabbage, baby bok choy, fried garlic, and topped with some greens. We even have a kid version of this soup, but without all the veggies.
Come by and check our Chef Ead's expertise on these delicious wontons in the hot broth with fresh veggies!
Team Yai's Thai Kitchen will be walking at the Walk to End Alzheimer's Saturday morning! We are so excited to be a part of this walk. Marching with our beloved Yai in mind, we will be doing the 5k at the University of Houston Central Campus. We will post pictures as soon as we can. For all those that helped us raise funds for the walk, we thank you again!
So with that, we are opening at noon on Saturday instead of 11am. Just an hour later for this day only. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Order a root beer float today to support the Alzheimer's Association! All proceeds will go toward our Walk to End Alzheimer's this Saturday at University of Houston. Drink up!
Help us raise funds for Alzheimer's Association this Saturday morning by eating doughnuts and drinking coffee!
Yai's Thai Kitchen will be selling Krispy Kreme donuts by the dozen, as well as a donut meal with freshly brewed coffee by Fort Bend Coffee Roasters. We are so close to reaching our goal of $2,000 that we just need you to eat some doughnuts!
Team Yai's will also be participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer's on Saturday, November 5, at University of Houston. Check out our Team Page Here!
The crowd is cheering, as well as tears are flowing...with happiness and spice! With such great feedback on our recent specialty menu item Volcano Chicken, we have decided to add it to the regular menu! Don't worry, we are still serving Volcano Chicken Curry as well.

Kao Soi is getting more and more popular due the love of yellow curry. So if yellow curry is one of your go-to picks and you want noodles instead of rice, Kao Soi may be your next big step. This northern Thailand dish consists of yellow curry broth, rice stick noodles, bean sprouts, half hard-boiled egg, wonton crispies, and fried shallots. Of course, this delicious dish has an option of chicken, pork, veg, tofu, beef or shrimp (additional charge for beef or shrimp).
This curry noodle soup has a thinner yellow curry consistency and often times will be served with egg noodles. While that's not one of our options, the rick stick noodles give it a hearty texture. Kao Soi is a Burmese-influenced dish that's served widely throughout northern Thailand, especially in Chiang Mai, and Laos.
Yai's Thai Kitchen was part of Travis High School's Open House, and it was so much fun! Parents, teachers, staff, and kids tried our Watermelon Green Tea as well as receiving some of our coupons. Have a great school year, Travis High School!
OK, we know, the title was corny, but we are ecstatic about our chicken wraps! Choosing from three different sauces (Honey Sauce, Peanut Sauce, or Panang Curry Sauce), our guests are enjoying every bits of this weekend's specialty menu!
For only $9, these wraps are a great detour from our usual Thai dishes, but the sauces will scream Thai food. Served with wonton crispies and our homemade sweet-n-sour sauce, Chef Anthony is definitely getting thumbs up for these wraps.
We've been jumping with joy when we heard we were on the running for Best Specialty Restaurant in the Absolutely Brazos magazine! Part of their annual Reader's Choice December issue, the magazine has different categories and sub categories about all the amazing things regarding our area. So please help us by voting for us to be Best Specialty Restaurant! We thank you!

Effective today, we will close shop a little early on Sundays! Instead of our usual 10pm, we will start closing at 9pm every Sunday. Our hours will remain the same for the other days (11am-10pm). Thanks for stopping by!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR GREAT CHEF, FATHER, UNCLE, HUSBAND, BOSS, AND EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN!
