Great Meal

The service was excellent. The menu was extensive. The food was excellent with all the old family favourites for adults and kids. The food was fairly priced.

This Thai Restaurant in the Crown Towers has a beautiful decadent feel with Thai carvings, sculptures and furnishings. The food is delicious the staff speak Thai, ordering off the menu was not an issue. Great experience, book early as for an outside table.

Chiang Mai Thai at Crown Towers is one of our favourite restaurants in Surfers, we love love love the entrees, especially the dim sim and chicken satay. The atmosphere is fantastic with the wood carvings and water features. Really recommended.
