“well worth your custom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Seems to me that some reviewers are getting mixed up between the 3 GC ChiangMai locations ; I am writing about the stand alone - single storey building on GC H'way at Broadbeach which we visited 2 weeks ago. Also, it seems perverse to criticise an operation, in a tourist location, which is owned / managed and largely staffed by ethnic Thais as catering to tourists and not producing authentic Thai food. That commentary seems somewhat pompous to me having eaten in Thailand often enough to know good from ordinary.
On the evening we visited the restaurant was very busy. We were immediately struck by the outstanding ethnic decor and artifacts. Reception and wait staff were efficient and courteous.
The food was very good, servings were ample and delivered from the kitchen piping hot without undue delay. The bill for food (we indulged to excess), beer and wine was less than $40 pp...that is a very fair price.

ChiangMai Broadbeach is a really good middle-of-the -road operation.....some people may well rate it better than that and I wouldn't argue. Ours was an enjoyable experience.

“Best Thai Resturant in Surfers Paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012 via mobile

We make it our mission to visit Changmai Thai (on the Gold Coast highway) everytime we are in Surfers.

From reading recent comments of Changmai thai we were a little bit reluctant to visit again due to some negative feedback, however due to our loyalty we would visit again during our Holiday vacation.

Fantastic food!!! Great service!!! Excellent atmosphere!!! Well should I go on!!!

I thought how could some of the poor to average comments be posted about the Gold Coast highway Changmai Thai restaurant be. Then I realised that some of these comments could be for the OTHER Changmai thai establishments in the area with Trip Advisor members no realising. Then as I went through the photos some of the images do not match the interior or exterior setup/decor of the Gold Coast branch!

Changmai Thai- Gold Coast Highway is unbelievably, and still is, fantastic!

“Best Thai you will ever eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

I have been here a few times when staying at Mantra Bel-Air as its at the bottom of the hotel, this is such a beautiful restaurant with traditional sparkling gold decor and carvings and the ladies dress in the traditional Thai Silk dresses. Even the cutlery is gorgeous with ornate elephants carved into it ! Its these little details that make it such a nice experience. The food is divine, and I love how they bring you your rice in these lovely silver buckets in stands. Really a wonderful experience not to be missed if you are in the area !

“Authentic Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

This would be our favourite restaurant. The ladies dressed in silk dresses, the decorations and the stunning meal make this place a top place to go to.

“So good!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Super friendly staff and great food!
The location isn't fantastic given that it's on a busy highway but the food was fantastic and very reasonably priced. The serves are generous without being over the top. We ordered 3 dishes between 4 of us and there wasn't a lot left at the end.
Very tasty, authentic Thai food! (And also worth a mention is the super clean toilet!)
