Let me say first that our visit there was very good. The restaurant is tastefully decorated. The staff very pleasant and accommodating. The prices are very reasonable. The portions are plentiful. And the Fresh Roll (appetizer) and Tom Yum Gai (soup) are outstanding! The menu is very extensive and has items on it which we have not seen in other... More

Being a bit of Thai food devotee, I have standard dishes that I try in most new Thai restaurants I visit. Cha Da Thai met expectations in terms of having a cute interior and friendly servers. There is an option to have the soups in larger portions to share, in traditional multi serving heated bowls that are a lot of... More

DH and I both had curry; he had the masaman and I had the green. So, so, so good! Great sized portions and amazing flavor. It's a college town, so don't expect a stuffy place. It's tastefully decorated with staff in Thai costumes. Good drinks menu, too.

We had a party of 9 for dinner tonight at the restaurant for my daughter's graduation from App. State. We had made reservations many weeks in advance. They had our table all set up for us - and we arrived a little early. The atmosphere was nice. The server we had was very pleasant and took our appetizer and drink... More

This restaurant is a very good complement to all the places to eat in Boone. The food is great, with just the right amount of heat. Try the Tom Yum Soup!

I have only had Thai food maybe once or twice in my life and it was okay. So when a friend wanted me to try this place I wasn't expecting much. So glad I was wrong! I would eat here every week if I could. (But I don't) the lunch portion is more than enough I always have plenty to... More

We are locals and I hadn't been to cha da Thai in a couple of years. While the food is ok and the staff is pleasant, the menu just doesn't change and is a bit bland. But, the real issue I have here is the use of Windex to clean tables. For me there's nothing that will kill a good... More

Visiting Boone while helping our daughter move here we had dinner at Cha Da Thai and were thrilled to have had such a great Thai dining experience. The decor was quaint with an asian flare, but not as cheesy as most, and the food was excellent. We all ordered level three and it was perfect. The service was great and... More
