We visited Chaba Chaba on Friday night and there was a fantastic atmosphere. It was busy but you didn't feel like you were sitting on top of the table next to you. More importantly, the food was great, the wine was well priced and the staff were delightful as always. The chicken pad Thai and the lamb massaman curry were... More

Second visit here, maybe I just chose the wrong dish, taramind duck, dry very little sauce, big disappointment. Very noisy restaurant, I prefer more relaxed And sophisticated, others in the group lived the dishes they chose

As above. The waiting staff are very attentive and remember little details. On top of this the food is very delicious and subsequently we now visit every time we are in the area. Keep up the good work!

I wanted to boot the door to the kitchen down and clap the chef. Went with four friends all cooks, and we were just eating every course, looking at each other as if to say 'Good this isn't it?'. I got home and just stared at the wall for twenty minutes thinking:....'yerse! That was sound that'.

My wife & step-son think this place is the dogswotsits but I'm sorry but I just can't agree. Thought my thom kha soup, although quite tastly, lacked a chilli hit and I just couldn't taste any Kaffir lime leaf or lemon grass. In fact I think the latter were in the soup but as woody fragment at the bottom of... More

Came to this place as some reviewers have said it is authentic, having travelled around Thailand I can certainly say it isn't at all! It might be modern looking but for me its all about the food! ...well and decent service! Everything has been westernized, tiny Tom Yum Soup-wrong flavour, no oyster mushrooms, and very mild! Pad Thai had too... More

Usually one of our favourite places to eat in Allerton but we had a disappointing night this time. The nam tok beef salad (again, usually a favourite of ours) was poor - the meat was very tough and it was deliberately well over seasoned to disguise it. Then there was that thing that happens in restaurants sometimes......we asked for the... More

Love this place, been to most of the other Thai restaurants and this is by far the best! The food is so reasonably priced and just as nice as any of the others. Staff are so helpful and friendly! Would recommend it to anyone!

Six of us dined here. Venue is pleasant, and staff were friendly and helpful. Food was good and portion sizes were generous. All in all, it was good value for money. I have eaten in better Thai restaurants but have paid a lot more. I would recommend it if you want a good Thai meal without going into the city... More
