Not Your Average Thai

I've had plenty of boring Thai food, and Chai Thai is NOT boring. Something about this place made its cuisine fresher, more colorful than usual. The dining room is small and attractive. Very busy, server barely checked on us, but food was worth it. The tom kha soup (coconut lemongrass soup) and... read more

Delicious Thai food, large variety that included ability to choose mild to spicy. I've had green curry with tofu twice; recently tried shrimp with mango dish with jasmine and garlic rice. Delicious! The menu is such that you can choose a larger entree or appetizers, noodles for a smaller meal. The service was excellent. We also ordered a few dishes... More

Been to several Thai restaurants in Oakland, wife is Thai and we go to Thailand every year, so this review should have credibility. The exterior building does not look like much, so you may think you might not want to go, but after entering, it has quite a nice decor. Went 5:30pm on a Sunday and seated immediately. 4 of... More

Thai restaurants all over the Bay area. But this is definitely the best Thai restaurant I have been too in the Bay Area. I am so glad its close by and that I have tried this place out. Its super small and had a long wait but its worth the wait. You can also order a smaller portion on each... More

In town from Boston, I was never more thankful for crowd sourcing foodies. The mango curry shrimp was perfect as was the brown rice. Great mango ice cream and Singha in a frosted mug. Friendly and attentive waitstaff. Not sure what the bougie neighborhood haters are about--seems like a city to me. Will definitely come back if I'm lucky enough... More

After reading great reviews about this restaurant I decided to call in an order to go (I was travelling on business). Upon arriving I was not excited about the location, as it looked like a tough neighborhood. I was surprised to find the door locked even though the restaurant was packed. Turns out they keep the door locked even though... More

Sure the neighborhood is a little dicey and parking is on street but it is worth the trouble. A friend recommended Chai Thai Noodles as a place for authentic Thai food so we went in. That was over 5 years ago and this is our go to Thai place. Yummy.
