Cho Gao has a great happy hour! Half off drinks and the atmosphere is very much a low key lounge... the food is not bad either! I got the pad Thai once, not very impressed with that. But the fried rice was very good and very flavorful!!!

While the service isn't always speedy, Cho Gao offers delicious food and yummy drinks. They do a good happy hour deal on drinks in the evenings.

The restaurant was packed, the vibrance... More

Friendly staff but I ordered a terrible dish with rice and chicken dry and lacking flavors (even though menu stated chicken cooked with coconut milk and Thai herbs). chicken was not fresh.
