Great value for money and great time food

This is a fantastic little Thai place in the city. Having actually visited Thailand and thus become increasingly disappointed by the offerings in Sydney, this place is a shining light. The food is great with some real authentic flavours and the staff are friendly and helpful! Worth a visit.

Ordered a chicken curry, a cashew chicken and some rice. The food was good but not amazing. I had a litchi drink which was very good! There was a lot of noise. The service was poor. Half of our order was forgotten for around 20 minutes and even when we said it it took a while to get it. The... More

I have been coming here for years & recently visited Haymarket Chat Thai & had a terribly rude & uninterested waitress- which was very out of character for this restaurant. Normally despite the wait to be seated the dining experience is pleasurable. The food is always amazing- my personal favourites- fresh spring rolls, emerald duck & watermelon drink- delicious. I...

My classmate who now resides in Sydney suggested we eat an early dinner at this place. It was a good decision. Found the place a bit small and cramped as we had to share our table with 2 more persons but the food was quite tasty and cheap considering we were in the heart of Sydney's CBD. No wifi connections... More

If you're looking for good food, decent service and a nice atmosphere, this is NOT the place to go to. Arrived at 9:15 pm on a Friday night and were rushed through dinner. Dishes brought out sporadically, and then the staff stood nearby and tried to clear dishes that we were still eating from. Truly the worst dining experience I... More

Went here at around 11pm on a weeknight and it was packed! Food was excellent. The service was very quick and the prices were extremely reasonable! One of my favourite Thai restaurants in Sydney!

We are obsessed with Thai food so have eaten at many Thai restaurants throughout sydney and Thailand. Chat Thai is very authentic Thai that you don't really get outside Thailand. Many dishes that many western Thai restaurants don't usually have. You won't be disappointed.

Although when we first walked passed at 12.30, there was no one waiting, the place was packed. Another quick lap of the restaurants available and we'd made our choice - whoops - now a queue had formed & a ticket was required. No problem, a short wait and we were ushered to our table. The menu was extensive & the... More
