Our "go-to" Thai place in Maine

We've been coming to Chaba for years and really like the dishes here. The Drunken Noodle dish is our favorite. They use a lot of fresh veggies with each dish . Some places rely on onions, red peppers and a string bean or two but Chaba has a good variety, which my wife as a vegetarian appreciates... read more

I ate here recently, and found the food very good. The ingredients were fresh and very flavorful. There were several vegetarian options, and they were able to accomodate some recipe tweaks for a vegan diet. The portions are very generous, and the service was fast. our waitress was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is clean and not chaotic.

Very good Thai food. Friendly, efficient service. We usually get take out but on occasion will eat in. Lunch specials are a fantastic deal. Atmosphere is not fancy, but very welcoming, cozy and clean.
