Nice atmosphere, good food

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... read 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

This restaurant does not offer authentic Thai food. That's because the quantity of protein (meat, fish, chicken) is much greater than one would receive in any restaurant in Thailand. Also the portions are larger, so I'm not complaining about either. The food tended to be a bit blander than we would prefer, and simply making it hotter (chemically, not physically)... More

We have eaten there lots of times and had a great experience each time. Have gone there alone,with husband,family including grandchildren. We all loved the freshness,taste and quality of food. Would highly recommend them. Use all caps as larger print easier on eyes. Why you wont allow that is beyond me

I love Thai food and this place has some of the best I have had. It is on the corner of McKellips and Rucker and has a nice atmosphere. If you like Thai give this place a try.

Good for a quick stop, nothing really special. The food was seasoned ok. I was hoping for something a little bit more special.

So many choices. Food is "clean" not smothered in sauce. Nice presentation on large plates - easy to share. Restaurant is nothing fancy but very welcoming atmosphere. Service is first rate. They have a small bar area that I would feel comfortable at if dining alone. We will definitely return for another great meal when in the Mesa area.

We live within walking distance of 5R Cha and have been meaning to eat there for months, so we finally went in for lunch a couple of days ago. Service was great, loved the ambience, and the food (we both had the Drunken Noodles) was outstanding. We will be returning soon for dinner. Highly recommend eating here.

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the past two years. The food and service have been consistently excellent. We have tried other Thai restaurants within a reasonable radius and wished we had eaten at 5 R Cha. The menu lists a wide variety of appetizers, soups, and entrees - including numerous vegetarian items. The... More

A local Mesa discovery of Thai cuisine. Our party of six enjoyed an appetizer of edamame along with dinners of drunken noodles with chicken, cha broccoli with beef, BBQ pork, thai chowmein with beef, green curry with chicken (with bamboo shoot, carrot, bell pepper, long beans, broccoli, eggplant, and basil). All were excellent with a medium spicy sauce. Quick, efficient,... More
