The place is in the building of The Exchange tower, on the way from Soi 18 to Asok BTS conveniently located away from the buzz of Terminal 21 shopping mall. Plenty of room and pretty good service. The "big breakfast" is not that big but it's very tasty. The mushrooms nicely seasoned, potatoes not over fried, bacon is crispy, bread... More

I have been there many times and decided it was time to take my husband. The food is fine. The disappointment is when dust balls fall off the spinning fan and light fixtures are covered. I understand casual and minimal, but it is very unappealing to pay those prices that clearly afford paying the numerous staff that can clearly dust... More

Came here for lunch with my family. We ordered the eggs benedict with salmon which was pretty plain, herb roasted chicken (quite dry) and the lucy burger with some drinks. The Lucy Burger was probably the best thing we ordered at Chu. The bill came to 1500 THB, expensive but not hugely surprising as the price is quite typical for... More

Chu is extremely easy to find, literally walking distance from the BTS and MRT at Asoke. The decor is charming, although the tables and chairs could probably use some fixing (e.g. paint chipped off, unbalanced tables). We ordered three things: green tea with mint, a brownie with ice cream, and chocolate cake in a mug. Everything was larger than we... More

Grumpy staff, food thrown down and the quality fallen badly. Used to be one of my favourite cafés but it really is one to avoid now. My last two experiences have been so bad and it's a shame as it is in such a great location. The staff from the Philippines are still very good but the rest of the... More

Chu Café got bigger. It has been enlarged and now functions as a restaurant. I heard they offer great breakfasts but I most often go there for their amazing pastries and their incredible choice of chocolates. If you just try their chocolate nuggets (for 50B), you'll get a sense of the quality of their chocolate. They do serve good coffee... More

My family and I have been here many times for brunch. So far everything in the breakfast menu that we have tried were really good. Pancakes were my favourite but I didnt like that they charge extra if you want more of the syrup when during our first to second visit they were free it's not that it cost a... More

I'd been to Chu a number of times for the coffee and the killer dark chocolate soothies, but had passed on the food except for the blueberry muffins. Last week I had an early morning business meeting there and my companion ordered up a meal, so I chose the Norwegian salmon with scrambled egg on toast. It was great. I'm... More

After reading great reviews I had high hopes of a great breakfast; soft warm poached eggs, organic ham & delicious coffee.. Perhaps they had a bad day.. They were busy when we arrived mid morning & it was very noisy. Service staff were friendly & helpful, but the 1st dish took 45 minutes & the 2nd was 10 minutes after.... More
