Excellent value

The food is very good and the service very quick. There isn't a lot of room but a lot of tables and people so you feel a bit tight.

We went at noon and didn't mind a little bit waiting for tables.The food was a little bit spicy for us as Cantonese. The portion was quite enough for us! We took away a Tom Yum at that night because them didn't offer it at noon. The prawn was huge and well worth the price!

a genuinely genuine yet modern thai place! as far as location-wise possible, i guess - not just the best thai i had in YEARS, but probably the best out of thailand (which i cannot judge, yet.. i've heard it's worth a visit - if you're in Sydney on the other hand - DON'T miss out! Great service, menu / price... More

Very popular because the food is great. Don't go if you want an intimate dining experience. Thai fish cakes as appetiser outstanding. Food is fresh and plenty of it to share.

We had 2 different girls who took our drink order then meal order and both couldn't speak very good English which made it really... More

Some of the best Thai i've had outside of Thailand - went for the last meal in Syndey before heading to the airport and was quick, inexpensive and very very tasty - recommend the beef mussaman curry. Truly excellent

This place is amazing, you can't book, you just have to take a number and wait. The service is super fast and the food is amazing, one the best Thai restuarant we have been to in a long time. We could travel to Sydney just for this Thai food. Really really good!!

Chat Thai was just directly opposite to the hotel I stayed, hence it's a no brainer to not try this restaurant. There was a queue when my friend and I wanted to have dinner and we waited for approx 30-40 minutes. We were so hungry that when our number was being called and were given the bar table, we didn't...
