We used to patronize this popular neighbourhood restaurant fairly frequently when visiting our family in Portland (about 12 times annually). Our perception over the past year is of declining serice and more of a desire to turn over the tables. We are a family of 6 which includes our (now) 6 year old granddaughter. Cha B.A. Thai imposes an automatic... More

Good place for Thai if you are already in NE. I have always though the kitchen looks a little... Parking can be a little hard near the entrance. You may need to walk a block or two.

We found this great Thai place on Sandy Blvd. yesterday. The interior was really pretty and very well detailed. One of the best Thai places I have every been to. The food was very well presented with flavors out of this world. Nice seating but if a large group be sure and call ahead. Takeout is also an option! Loved... More

My husband & I phoned in an order at 8:00pm on New Year's Eve. This was our second experience, having had dinner there with a friend who suggested the restaurant about a month ago. We thought our meal then was very, very good, which is why we decided to go back for takeout. We ordered egg rolls, tempura and pork... More

We have been going to both Chaba Thai locations for years---love them both. The NE Alberta location has the easy family-friendly ambience and seating (outside too), with no lines. The original NE Sandy location has really excellent food, but gets crowded. So both are great! The dishes are made with fresh ingredients, deep flavors with good vegetarian options, and good...

It is in the NE area of Portland, with inside and outside eating. The service was good and the food was good. It is a little out of the way but well worth finding.

Both my daughter and I have eaten here regularly for several years now. The service is attentive, the food regularly excellent. It is, however, very noisy and nearly impossible to have a conversation without yellling. We often get take-out for this reason. Love the curries and soups. Also love the green papaya salad.

I met a couple of friends for dinner on a Monday evening. The service was excellent and very friendly, the food was wonderful, and while the restaurant got full it was never too noisy. After eating we sat and talked until almost closing time. I would highly recommend this Thai restaurant!

I've always loved this place! It's the first Thai restaurant I ever tried and we always make a point to go there when we're in town... my wife and I ate there on our first date 8 years ago! I've never had any bad experiences there and always recommend it to friends, up until last night. They were very busy... More
