Best Thai food we've ever had

My wife and I make it a point to go here at least once every year on our trip to Maine. The food is simply outstanding. Truly a hidden gem as someone else said. You'd never guess how good it is from the outside of the building, very unassuming. The place is always half empty, don't let this... read more

There was a non asian lady (apologies for making this a little stereotypical) serving us and she was absolutely amazing. Knew what to recommend for a family with young... More

Driving up Rte 1, thinking about lobster rolls, we saw this small, colorful Thai restaurant with a SUSHI sign lit in the window and quickly changed our minds about the roll. So glad we did. Had an excellent signature Tokyo maki roll and one of the chef's specials which was asparagus with seafood - every morsel of asparagus, scallop, shrimp... More

I have reviewed this restaurant during the past year, as the best Thai food in Maine by far...After some months of absence due to several health issues, i was able to return June 2, and once again I was blown away by the excellence and creativity of the Chaba Thai kitchen...Their use of spices is complex, sophisticated and sublime...The review...

The atmosphere is very nice, warm and friendly. The place is always evolving with such creativity. I enjoy the food and the company every time I go. This year will be my 8th year enjoying this eating spot. I look forward to more years in the future.

I had a very simple dish, veggie tempura. my husband had the rice with duck. hardly edible. They bought appetizers, soup and main course out within... More

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. We eat at... More
