I LOVE THIS PLACE. Approaching Monkey King for dinner we were so excited, as we were hit with the most delicious aroma of Thai food cooking. We were drooling. Honestly it smelt utterly sensational. We were so excited. Smelt so authentic like we were back in Thailand. Until we realized the smell was NOT coming from Monkey King. It was... More

Have been a few times, it's a bit hit and miss. Generally the food is good. Portion sizes of the mains is quite generous. Service is patchy. One visit earlier this year it was very efficient, the next visit very slow. It's BYO and reasonably priced.

We haven't had a bad meal there yet - great, fresh flavours and nice to sit outside when possible. Staff can be a bit slow depending on where you're seated but intention is always good.

As a group of four, we made a booking since it was a Saturday night. On arrival there was no table available at all ( we had booked one outside). After 30 minutes we were shown to an inside table that was overly small, on the promise that we would be moved when another became available. Another 30 minutes passed... More

Cha Rice serves mixed Asian cuisine, though strongly Thai influenced. It's in an arcade in the middle of the Newport shopping strip, has mostly outside seating with a few cramped tables inside. There is an annex, 10m or so from the main restaurant, which provides a fair bit more inside tables. All areas are serviced from a cramped kitchen that... More

A local place for us. The food was terrific (I cook Thai food and have done courses in Thailand) and it was cheap. Service charming. I prefer it to the new and trendy Monkey King which is nearby but exceptionally noisy. This is a quality, no-fuss joint with good outdoor dining in summer. Well done.

We have regularly enjoyed Cha’s since its inception more than a decade ago, when Mint’s elder sister (now at Avalon) started with a humble beginning. The menu has improved vastly to cater to wider tastes over the years by expanding its offerings. Whenever we have a family occasion or local or overseas friends (including our now adult children and even... More
