The food is the best Thai food in the entire neighborhood, the service is friendly, the price is right, and they have a lovely yard space in the back with plenty of distancing between tables.

This small Thai restaurant in the Cobble Hill neighborhood has an extensive menu of Thai favorites, along with a bar that has garden seating. The food is good and prices are reasonable.

My girlfriend and I went there last night and we loved it! We have just been in Thailand and were so amazed over the great thai taste this restaurant in Brooklyn has. Try the calamaris and the ginger chicken! Good prices too.

My husband & I went with another couple to Cafe Chili. Nice decor, delicious food! We had lobster bisque, crabcakes & Thai salad for appetizers. All were quite tasty. Salmon w/honey mustard, chicken pad Thai, duck & tofu w/flat noodles &Thai broccoli in gravy were...the entrees that we ordered and all were superb! I would definitely recommend this Thai restaurant!More

This used to be a better place to eat. The food used to fresh tasting but now it tastes microwaved. They used to greet you politely but not they are abrupt and unwelcoming. We love the modern decor and the view from the front window....There are tables located in the front that are located in what must have been for window shopping. We loved the physical Resturant but the food and service not so much.More

We were looking for the signature soup of Thailand: Tom Yam. Closest thing on the wordy menu contained the words "tom yam", but the dish that showed up at the table contained not a hint of lemongrass, galinga, onion, mushrooms, onion, makrouk leaves, hot peppers...or lime juice -- all essential ingredients in Thai tom yam. Instead, this concoction had noodles, squid and shrimp, which if seasoned correctly, might have resulted in a Thai-like dish. But the weird inclusion of noodles and the omission of all vegetables and seasonings resulted in something I've never seen in any restaurant or good stall in my 8 years of residence there; and more importantly, was not tasty. I suppose my disappointment was apparent, and lead to increasingly surly service as the meal wore on. Table decor was nice, but not Thai. In Thailand, any noodle dish would always be served with chopsticks, which were notably absent here. Also nam pla (fish sauce), ubiquitous in every Thai restaurant, wasn't anywhere to be seen. I hate to plant a bomb in any place that is trying, but in this case, if you are looking for anything approaching authentic Thai food, you need to turn your back and run.More
