There is a lot of seating so you can bring big groups of people there. The food is okay. The staff is okay. There is really nothing that stands out in my mind. The portions were really big, which is not a bad thing, but the prices reflect the big portions. The decor is way to much. There is just... More

The food may not be authentic Thai, but it is really exceptional. I had Sweet and Sour Tofu. The tofu was deep fried perfectly so that it was hard and crunchy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. One suggestion I would make is that the veggies on the plate were unusual. Besides the usual Bell Pepper... More

we chose to eat outside since you can smoke at those tables. Service was very nice, and quick. Meals presentation was average, but food was delicious and generous. I was full and satisfied.

A yummy, affordable and reliable standby. I eat here once or twice a month, either with friends or visitors on business. Great place to to when you want good, fast service (like before a concert or movie). Decent variety, friendly service. I prefer the dishes indicated as spicy on the menu because when you ask for them to spice it... More

Very authentic and a huge variety. Very good! A little cheesy on the decor, but the food is so incredible. Owners/wait staff are very friendly and attentive.

We went with friends (she's a vegan) and I had my fingers crossed because I don't like spicy food (to give you an idea . . . the salad at the Outback is spicy to me because they have white pepper on it !!). . . that was totally unnecessary . . . there were several options that I could... More

If you want authentic Thai food, do yourself a favor and head to Monsoon Thai in Mountain City. Cha Da Thai, however not quite authentic, is delicious and the service is consistently good. They have an extensive wine list, and pitchers of nice craft beers for $10. Honestly, as far as price to quality to service ratio goes, this is... More

Great atmosphere and wonderful food! The hot soup bowl was really good! The curry dishes were very tasty and the everyone at our table was quite happy with the meals. We were surprised to find this high level of Thai restaurant in Boone.

But for the somewhat cheesy decorations, the restaurant was excellent. We were seated promptly and served promptly. When we ordered water for the kids, the waitress asked us specifically if we would like cups with lids or glass cups. We ordered side orders of fried rice for the kids and she asked if it was OK to have eggs in... More

Cha Da Thai has been a disappointment twice; I won't give it another try. The sauce for the fresh rolls was sweet soy with crushed peanuts, nothing even slightly Thai about it. The entree dishes (my party had three different ones) were all over-sweetened and under-spiced; catsup seemed to be the main spicing ingredient, and carrots the favorite vegetable. Sadly,... More
