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

Went for dinner late - about 8:00. The service was fantastic. There were other patrons enjoying a quiet dinner as well. The Satay Chicken was yummy. The Chicken Pad Thai needed a little more flavor, but the chili peppers took care of that. The Ginger Chicken was DELICIOUS!! Would recommend it over the Pad Thai. All-in-all good experience.

I have been a big fan of Thai food and had always been disappointed that there were none near my house. I was shocked that the italian place on the corner closed, but was excited for the thai food. I had the Masaman rice with a cucumber salad and was not disappointed. I look forward to exploring the rest of... More

We have acquired a taste for Thai food and like it made to order as they did for us. We ordered the Chicken Green Curry and I asked for it to be made with coconut milk since it wasn't on the menu that way, they did and it was very good. Husband ordered pineapple chicken curry and they did the... More

This place hasn't been open too long and we hope they stay in business because the food is delicious!!! We went right when it opened and were seated quickly. The waiter told us it's more Asian fusion with a Thai twist so don't expect traditional Thai dishes. We ordered the Thai Sweet Potatoes and Satay Chicken as appetizers. Both excellent... More
