After living in Denver for 16 years I was surprised that I had never tried, nor heard anything about, Chada Thai. Now that I've been there I understand why...it's fine. It's not a super star of Denver's Asian food restaurants, but one that I will give another try. I usually order Pad Thai when I first visit a new Thai... More

What a nice find. We love authentic tasting Thai cuisine and this fit the bill. Great curry dishes and the garlic eggplant was amazing. The aromas from the kitchen and dimly light ambience were just what we were looking for. It is a modest environment, but nice. I would definitely return when in the Capital Hill area.

Small family run authentic Thai, with the kitchen run by mom. Start off with some Thoum Ka soup, coconut with a mix of vegetables and a choice of meats. Phad Thai is tasty and don't miss the brown rice. Medium spicy just right, if not a little on the stinging side.

Living in central NH it is hard to find good Thai food that is spiced correctly. Chada Thai fit the bill for us perfectly though my colleague says hers could have been a bit spicier. We both like things spicy but not so you tongue falls off like some kooks. We were in later in the evening and the service... More

Excellent food and outdoor seating. Lettuce-wrapped peanut appetizer was phenomenal! We enjoyed a few curry dishes heavy in vegetables, especially Meekh Khong (??) which had plenty of fresh green beans.

We are staying in the neighborhood and stopped here for lunch. We love Thai food and generally enjoy neighborhood eateries. Our experience here was disappointing. Our wait person showed no friendliness or interest in serving us, although the place was almost empty. The dining room looked "tired." We were seated near the front window. The windowsill was scattered with dead... More

The Thai Curry was excellent, as was the soup. Service was very warm & helpful. I appreciated our servers attentiveness to help my Mom decide what to have, as this was her first experience with Thai food. Good wine, and we loved sitting on the patio. We were staying on Colfax, and the location on 17th was a welcome change... More

Stopped here while driving from Frisco, CO to Dallas, TX for lunch. Everyone was apprehensive about the value of detour from the main route and getting into downtown Denver. However glad to say that the food was good and value for money. Costed just $40 for 5 adults. Had Tom Yum soup, veg spring rolls, pad thai, and thai curry.... More

Chada Thai was recommended to us and we thought it was an excellent choice. The space inside is small, but very pleasant. The menu had some choices beyond those usually found at Thai restaurants. My husband is a strict vegan and the friendly and helpful server was very knowledgeable about ingredients in various dishes. Everything we had was delicious--well seasoned... More

I am a foodie. I eat and cook just about all types of food. I have been to a lot of Thai establishments in many different states and cities. This was my second visit and this place is below average. When we approached the establishment and looked at the menu, the waiter/owner acted like he did not care if we... More
