Back-patio experience

I went there with my friend and we sat in the patio area in the back of the restaurant. It was very beautiful with fountains and plants everywhere. The prices were fair and the meal (1 of the daily specials) was satisfying with a great combination of spices and tasty ingredients. The service was... read more

We arrived before the rush yet still the service was slow when we got there, and by the time the lunch time rush arrived service had deteriorated to plain bad, and was getting worse as the restaurant filled up! The food was perfectly acceptable but nothing special, however to be fair the lunch special was a decent portion, my standard... More

We just arrived home from Thailand and I didn't expect the food to be nearly as good. The rice was overlooked and had turned to mush, the curry we ordered, though well presented was small and chewy. The kicker was the coconut soup. It tasted like bath water with coconut milk so all in all flavourless. The thai style seafood... More

How many unscrupulous restaurateurs are taking advantage of the popularity of Thai cuisine ? Here's one who has the audacity to run a restaurant whithout a basic knowledge of the product offered. Consumers beware and learn from what happened to my group last night: three people ordered soup (one sweet and sour, two coconut milk) but all received the same... More

We go to Chez le Thai at least once a month. I love the big soup with seafood. My fiend normally orders the daily specials. The service is always friendly and the atmosphere is charming.

I've been to Chez le Thai many times and I have never been dissapointed with the food. I would rate their food from Very Good et Excellent. Where Chez le Thai fails is its service...service is not good. I have never seen more than one server at a time during busy hours: friday night, place is packed and still only... More

I read the reviews and was anxious to try the "best Pad Thai in town", until I had the worst dining experince ever - well, worst experience minus the dining part. I called to reserve a spot on the terrace for three adults and a baby, and I was told there's no room for a car seat. Then I asked... More

Went here with some colleagues during lunch, and found the food to be pretty good, but the service to be soooo slow. All in all not bad, but suggest they get more than just one server!
