Pleasant Surprise

Went to this restaurant knowing nothing about it. Good food. One member of our party enjoyed the spicy catfish, drunken noodles were good but we wished we had ordered the spicier version, very nice satay chicken, and veggie rolls. Friendly wait staff. Will go again.

A local TV station does a weekly segment called 'Dirty Dining' where they list Valley restaurants which have had health code violations (as well as those with a perfect score). Unfortunately, soon after our last visit, this restaurant was reviewed and 'led' the pack with 5 'major health code violations'. You might want to consider this.

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise! We had shrimp fresh rolls and satay chicken skewers for appetizerss, Tom Yum soup, and three main dishes (garlic beef with veggies and steamed rice; wide rice noodles with cabbage, broccoli, and chicken; and pork with veggies, pineapple, and steamed rice).. Everything was delicious, although the wide noodle dish had a bit too much... More

We went for a late lunch-early dinner so it was not overly busy. We were greeted and seated quickly. We ordered Pad Woo Sen (with chicken; spice level 3) and Rama (with Beef; spice level 4) and these 2 dishes were lots of food for the 2 of us. The food arrived very quickly and both dishes were very good;... More

My wife and I plus friends and family members have eaten at 5 R Cha Thai and have never been disappointed. Our server has ensured that all aspects of my meal, including the sauce, have been vegetarian. I would eat here again without hesitation.

Authentic Thai food at decent prices. Friendly staff. My husband had the crispy fish dish and said he really liked it. We had the chicken curry and it was good too.

The title says it all. The food was not good. We were hungry and ate some of it as a result. I would not eat there again.

We do like 5R Cha Thai Restaurant on the corner of McKellips and Recker in Mesa. The parking is good, there is a small patio for dining outside and a very nice dining area inside. The staff is very polite and informative about their dishes. If we want good, preservative-free, local food we go there. The prices are a bit... More

Our meals were very average, though the wait staff was friendly. I don't know how long this restaurant has been open but it needs some help in the ambiance dept. It looks like the restaurateurs have leased a space that is too big as the tables line the perimeter of a large open space & it gave off a weird... More
