We have eaten at Chiang Mai Thai in Crown Towers on a number of occasions in the past, and have always been impressed both by the ambience and the quality of the food. This time however we are staying at Crown Towers for 3 months, and walk past the restaurant every day. I am sorry to say that it is... More

After having such good reviews and awards, we thought we would try Chiang Mai. We were very disappointed though. Drinks were offered really quickly and we were off to a great start. Entrees were good but thats where it stopped. My boyfriend's meal of yellow curry came out first and wasn't very hot, neither was the rice. He finished his... More

A Thai style wooden building houses this restaurant. Great to sit outdoors under the heat Lamps! Service very efficient and the food was good. Fish cakes were great, Tom yum seafood soup could have been more spicy however the Pad Thai was delicious. Serving size was generous. Not sure about the price though, quite expensive for Thai food approx $25... More

One of the best Asian meals we have ever had. This restaurant is themed really well and transports diners into Thailand. We enjoyed Chiang Mai Thai's authentic curries and starters and service was warm and attentive. An exceptional dining experience all round and we highly recommend this restaurant.

We visited this restaurant whilst staying at the Mantra Crown Towers (the restaurant is in the motel) and it was incredible! Some standout dishes were the spicy seafood, and the green curry! The coconut rice was amazing too. The staff at this restaurant are so friendly and accommodating, one night there was a bit of an issue with our order... More

We had a booking on a Friday night for 11 people. The restaurant was very busy and I was glad we made a booking. The restaurant décor was beautiful and staff were very friendly. Meals came out in a timely fashion and were absolutely delicious and generous in serving size. Will definitely return when in the area..

My husband and I enjoyed dining at the Chiang Mai Thai. The decor is amazing both indoor and outdoor dining. The staff were exceptional, friendly, courteous and ensuring that our every need was met. Our meals were wonderful and plentiful. I would highly recommend this Restaurant.
