Situated in the newly renovated food court in the Townhall/QVB precinct. Very dark & moody but quirky Reno- I like it. Lots of Asian to choose from here, we chose this venue as everything was made to order and fresh. The vegetarian options aren't listed, they need to add Tofu to their menu board, but you can order a bunch... More

Hi there, congratulations to the kitchen crew. I was there with my boyfriend by chance, and sincerely even 'cause it was the only opened reasonable restaurant at 8.00 pm...awesome! Real thai taste, with their spices and flavour, not bad imitations! Noodles with prawns were really exiciting, beef was so soft and well done, maybe only the fried prawns of the... More

My friend and I chose to visit Chat Thai in central Sydney based on the good reviews in guide books and trip advisor. We arrived at 8.30 but had already checked the website and seen that it opens until 2am. The waitress who seated us informed us that they would be closing the kitchen at 9 so we would need... More

Went to Chat Thai last Sunday for a friend's birthday. Four of us arrived around 11:30 in the morning and had no issues with finding parking and a table. Service was fast and friendly, food was absolutely delicious. Great ambience with the glass partition near the kitchen area. The portion was relatively small,otherwise fun experience. Would recommend making a reservation... More

Odered satay chicken skewers, fish cakes, papaya salad for starter, red curry duck, pad Thai for main then follow by mango sticky rice for dessert. All dishes are tasty. must try blended juice. Highly recommended. Queues are usually long during lunch and dinner. Suggest to get there by 6pm for dinner to avoid the long wait.

Visited Sydney over Easter and friend recommended this restaurant. It is so authentic that you actually can taste Thai in the food. Unlike a lot of Thai restaurant stating serving Thai food but cooked by non Thai chef. You can actually see the kitchen and they are actual Thai chef cooking it. Apart from the real Thai chef, the food... More

We tried Chat Thai because of its high rating here. However, it's extremely disappointing. The fried shrimp and squid with oyster sauce is too salty the shrimp is not fresh at all. The pickled crab salad and the dressing is horrible. The pad thai only got chicken and some vegetables (many major ingredients missing) which is not authentic at all.... More

A risk in publicly rating a restaurant highly is that more people will attend making it harder to get in - and its already hard enough. This is a really great Thai Restaurant in the Westfield complex. Great atmosphere and very good food at a most reasonable price. Invariably, a 20 minute wait but that passes quickly while watching diners... More
