Before Les miserables

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 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.

Got takeaway while staying at a hotel close by. The place was packed which was a great sign. The food was a good price. I ordered the green curry and pad Thai. Very tasty and traditional. Lots of flavour. I would order here again.

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

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.

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...
