Hotel recommended this place to us. Was a bit hard to find on a Sunday night. Food and service was good. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Beware...some of the dishes are quite spicy but very nice and full of flavor.

Have been to both the Haymarket and Pitt St restaurants and they are... More

The food (whether take away or in house) makes this place one of the best value this restaurant in Sydney. Each dish had a different and distinct flavour, so the variety makes it flavourful. Pork Belly is my favourite. we had take away dinner - just delicious

I visited here with my boyfriend last November on our trip to Oz and Chat Thai was one of our favourite restaurants from our whole trip (3 weeks)! My boyfriend doesn't usually enjoy thai food but Chat Thai converted him. Everything was so fresh and had so much flavour. We got a table on a Monday night and the place... More

On my 1st night in Sydney, my wife was craving for thai food nearby the hotel. I found Chat thai on the priority list. However, once we got there during dinner time, the queue was really2 crazy so that we chose other restaurants as my kids couldn't take it. On a second night, we were there (again ) at 5p.m... More

We as a group of 4 went there. We booked two days ahead. When we got there, we told one of the staff we came to server that we have booked. She led us to a table without checking our booking. Later on another staff came asking us did we book? We said yes. Then he replied: you should have... More

We booked for a table for 4 ppl a day before. When we arrived, I mentioned that we have booked a table but the waitress seems did not care and didn't ask for names etc and lead us to a table. When our friends arrived later, a man, maybe it's the manager asked us very rudely if we have booked... More

Walked into Chat Thai without much expectations. It seems popular in the mall. Restaurant was packed with people. Ordered a simple chili fried rice and it was SO GOOD! I dare say it was the best fried rice I had in a long long time. Be warned, it gets really spicy. Staff was nice to inform me before hand thou.
