Delicious Food

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... read more

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

Chat Thai is a growing business in Sydney with outlets throughout the city. They are all great and very popular. A bit noisy inside and seating is at times shoulder to shoulder but you will get really good thai food here.

Never again! We were very excited about trying this highly recommended restaurant. 60min in the freezing cold which we were prepared for. Unfortunately the service we received inside after the long wait was terrible! It was astonishing really! We located by the exit which was drafty and waiters found impossible to close after themselves. Personally I found the place totally... More
