So much mediocre thai food in Sydney, so it was fantastic to be at a place that is confident enough to deliver varied adventurous and spicy offerings, which is obviously in demand judging by the punters outside lining up to enjoy. And what a treat to be able to book and bring BYO to a restaurant in the city. And... More

This is bustling place but it was average thai food which saved our day because it was open really late. It is close to hyde park area (5 minutes by cab from sheraton). The dessert menu was good but items with pandan were not available late.

Had the rice and spicy minced chicken - it was a perfect meal for a cold and rainy night. There was a crowd outside (in the rain, mind you) but people still waited for a table - the food is that good.

Super tasty. Loved the cashew chicken and beef pad thai, as well as the desserts, especially the coconut ice cream with sticky rice.

The food is fast, fresh and fabulous. Ambience is typically Asian - noisy, crowded and cramped. The service is fast and usually helpful but not this time - I think too, too busy. Food made up for it though. Would get 5 stars if the staff we as they used to be.

Book ahead and make a reservation if you can or you will definitely be waiting to be seated. Really nice authentic Thai food but if you don't like it too spicy make sure you tell them. I had a mild curry and to me it was quite spicy. It is definitely not a place to have a quiet conversation. It... More

Great menu. Great food. Ok service. Long wait, but worth it! Seems to be popular with locals. Chat Thai is also good value for this quality of food.

You know this is a great restaurant because there are always queues outside. We were happy to queue (although we had a reasonably short wait for a table) based on the reviews we had read. The range of dishes & quality was excellent. Service could be improved as we had to remind the waitress of a dish they had apparently... More

Always have a great time at this restaurant, delicious food and staff always friendly - be sure to check for any off-menu specials that may be available (the desserts are extremely authentic and amazing!)
