Scrumptious dinner

The setting, in a well landscaped passage between two buildings is really pleasant and the decor makes it an authentic Thai experience. The seating on the verandah is a pleasant place to sit on a summer evening. The sesame prawn starter was really good and the main course angry duck, crispy duck... read more

So a friend and I decided to take our friend to the Chang Thai for her birthday. This was after getting some good reviews. And boy did we have a good time too. Lovely ambience. Great food. And wonderful service. I'll definitely eat here again and again and again :)

I've eaten at the Thai Restaurant a few times and the food has always been exceptionally good. Though I avoid seafood at all costs as the first and last time I ordered prawns they actually came to the table smelling off! When we called the waiter to ask if they noticed anything wrong with the dish they agreed that it... More

A group of us (American expats from NYC) went last night off the recommendation of a friend. We were extremely excited to find out that there was a Thai restaurant in Lusaka. At the same time we didn't set our expectations too high cause after all this is Zambia. Boy were we in for a treat! It was like we... More

We went to this place on our last evening in Lusaka and I'm glad we found it! The service was excellent and the food was beyond delicious! I was glad that they have somehow managed to soundproof the noise that can be heard from the bar upstairs (its is loud and irritating when you are trying to have decent conversation)... More

Good service, good food, but in the middle of a mall so there are elements of that vibe present. Nice for a quick lunch or dinner.

The Chang has excellent Thai food. To be in the middle of Africa, and having such good Thai food is fantastic. Never disappointed, just be careful on how hot you order the food. Service and Atmosphere are good as well.

ChangThai restaurant has been our usual place to meet for Birthdays, gatherings, etc.. The food is good. Service is good as well. I think this place started off rough their first year but since that time they are consistently a decent place to eat. My only complaint is I wish they would train their people to do separate billing for... More

Went with friends from Lusaka who were saying they wished they knew a good Chinese Restaurant. We suggested Thai food and found Chang's thru trip advisor. The food was very good and it arrived in a timely manner. Our friends will become regulars and we will dine here again if we return to Lusaka.

I went there with my wife who was my fiancee then and I ordered a curry with rice. It was rich and spicy but enjoyable. The waiters were helpful in telling us which foods were good. I enjoyed the lunch.
