The ambience was great, also the cosy restaurant meant that there was little space to move around - and tables were very tightly packed together. The food here is AMAZING. And with a team of 6 Thai chefs, plus a full Thai waiting staff, I can see why too. I would highly recommend you order the stir fried kale with... More

This was a big disappointment given how many good reviews we'd read. The restaurant was freezing, even the staff were wearing their coats while working because the front door was open. The restaurant staff also had a hard time managing prepping for the lunch rush and attending to the customers who were there, it took a long time to get... More

Authentic Thai food in a friendly setting. This was just like eating in Bangkok. Excellent spicy food served quickly.

We came here for dinner before watching the musical and the food was impeccable. However, the wait staff would hover over you to quickly consume your meal so that they can give the table to the next person. I guess that is part of the roaring trade they are doing there. Still... You don't want to feel rushed eating your... More

You never go wrong with chat Thai. The only reason why I only give 4 stars, the wait can be long. But no wonder such a quick and good service with $15 very delicious meals!

Had a great meal at this little restaurant. I loved the mandarin juice. The food was interesting and very tasty I had a snapper salad with basil and tarragon. We also had the opportunity to get some dumplings and springrolls for starters. I loved the sauce. This will be a favorite place to visit in Sydney.

Good food with a wide choice. Missed an extra star because it was good but not fantastic. Staff and management were all very attentive and friendly.

After reading raving reviews of this restaurant, I just have to give it a go before I depart from Sydney. Being a regular visitor to Thailand and living in a neighboring country, I am pretty familiar with Thai food. I find the food at this place just average, no wow. Very spicy thought although I have asked it to be... More

The restaurant offers a superb menu with a selection of great dishes. The food is so tasty that you would want more and more. The service is good and prices are very reasonable. Located at the QVB in Sydney, the place is busy...busy...busy.
