It's good food. Not great. But for the area it's a nice change of tastes. The outside will scare you away but the inside its a pleasant surprise. The other reviews here are what encouraged us to try it out. We're glad that we did. The prices are a couple dollars too high in our opinion but the portion sizes... More

I haven't had anything we haven't liked yet. Everything is always fresh and delicious. Try the culture, food and experience. I must defend the location and building though, it used to be the old 31 flavors ice cream building not much to look at on the outside but they have made it very cozy and authentically decorated on the inside.

I went today with a friend after too long of an absence from Chaba. It is still the best place in town. In my previous review I recommended the #23 noodle dish, which I had today and my friend had my other recommend, #17 red curry. We both thoroughly enjoyed the meal, was fast, super tasty, completely filling, not a... More

We were in Beaumont for a few hours and happened to come across Chaba's. I had an excellent salad with slices of beef, tomatoes and green onions. My entree was the Kapow and the flavored of the spices, pork and other ingredients really live up to the name KAPOW!!! The building exterior looks a little rough and the interior is... More

The exterior of the building looks somewhat dilapidated.... Needs a paint job badly. Sign looks like they're closed. The interior is small and bare bones. However, the food is fantastic. I had the green curry with chicken, Thai eggplant, and basil. Extremely good. The service was good and quick. Prices are in line with most $ restaurant in the general... More

I try to go to Chaba (the original one on Lucas near Home Depot) at least once or twice a month. The building says nothing about the high quality of the food...this is where the locals eat. Far better than Pei Wei in my opinion, more authentic and consistent. I almost always get the #23--don't ask me the name, but... More

I've eaten Thai in Houston and New Zealand, and nothing comes close to Chaba. I swear by the pad thai and the Golden Triangle tofu appetizer. They deliver if you live close to the Phelan location, which is very dangerous for me... I could eat Chaba every night.
