Really excellent, bright, fresh colourful Thai food. Fresh ingredients, cooked to order and excellently spiced; just like in Thailand. Friendly, bustling atmosphere and excellent service.

Delicious authentic quality Thai food. Friendly services. Lunch or dinner or any time this restaurant serves good food, and you won't be disappointed. Will definitely eat here again when we visit Sydney again.

stopped by this place as soon as we drop our luggage in backpacker yesterday.It was recommended by one of our friend. Place was quite average. Food was good but did not meet our expectation. Place was small and they gave us small table after waiting at the door like 15 minutes. Food came pretty fast but there was no space... More

I love the foods so much as you can feel the spices when you eat it... It is recommendable if you love Asian foods in the Western world.

Very good Thai food, my friends and I came to Sydney on a budget and we were wanting to try and eat good food at a good price. Although this is not the cheapest thai place around it was great value for money. It took about 10 minutes for us to get seated at peak dinner time, the restaurant's look... More

To be honest, I am Thai. I lived in San Francisco before, and it was really difficult to find some authentic Thai food or street food in the Bay Area. But I found what I want at Chat Thai, Sydney. It is like there is no need to go to Thailand to eat Thai food. Just stop by the restaurant... More
