If you're looking for good Chinese food in this town forget it, unless you're idea of Chinese food is simply greasy rice and dry chicken balls (I know there are tonnes of you out there keeping these rat traps in business). But if you want something Asian, this is your best alternative. I've tried 3 different Thai places in the... More

I love Thai food and have eaten it at restaurants around the world and this rivals any I've been to. The food is delicious, service is good and the portions are very good as well. My wife and I ate here and ordered drinks, each an appetizer and entrees and with tip it only came to 40 dollars. Honestly, any... More

Always consistently good. If you want heat just ask and they will add heat to whatever level you desire in any of the dishes.

As the title of my review implies, this is my go to restaurant for Thai food when I come to Halifax. Always have to order extra to take home. The atmosphere may not be what you are looking for in a romantic dinner setting, but I come for the food quality as it is outstanding. The Masaman Curry Beef main... More

Two years ago my boyfriend and I tried thai food for the first time at ANOTHER local thai restaurant. We finally made our way to Chabaa Thai, Dartmouth location and haven't looked back since. The food is top quality, service is excellent. The authentic dishes never disappoint - from the red curry chicken, panang beef, thai rice or noodles, spring... More

Had it not been for the full name of the restaurant and the odd bit of decor in the eating area I would not have known it was a Thai restaurant. I say "area" as it was a bit of a barn of a room with lots of hard surfaces and no ambiente. There was a room further back. Maybe... More

I visited the new(ish) Bedford location of Chabaa Thai with a friend for lunch. Very friendly service, good atmosphere, pleasantly busy. The lunch specials are great value and the Green Curried Chicken with Spring Roll was excellent. A taste of the Panang Curried Beef was also excellent.

I've been here so many times and love the ginger beef and spicy seafood noodle! They serve a good amount of food (my friends take some home but I never have any left) And lovely ladies run around you to make sure you're fine ;)

Best place in Hali to get red curry, hands down. I like the Queen St. location better than the Darkside's (oops I mean Dartmouth).
