One of the popular restaurants in Chinatown and it does not matter what time of the day, there is always a long q of Thai food lovers! The food is really authentic and tasteful and for a moment, you feel like you are in Bangkok. Service is good but portion is small and price is quite dear compared to other restaurants around the same area. Overall, it was a great day out and will definitely go back again.

Green Papaya Salad is a favourite of mine that I seldom find on the menu. What a delight to enjoy this fragrant salad done so well! My partner opted for a green chicken curry and said it was delicious and not overpowered by the coconut cream. The restaurant is atmospheric with exposed brick walls and a double volume entrance. Additional seating is provided on a small mezzanine upstairs. The hotel Concierge recommended this authentic little gem.

Food was great but we had to keep asking for things as service was a bit lacking in parts (probably because they were so busy). Great selection of food and lovely decor

I have visited both the original Chat Thai on Campbell Street and the one in Westfield. The Thai food itself, its great and definitely amongst the best in Sydney. Problem is in Sydney that if anything is half decent, there is always a ridiculous line. If you have to wait longer than 20 minutes, don't bother - you can find a place where you don't have to wait as long which is fine. There's nothing so special or original here worth a long wait, but if you dont have to wait very long its definitely worth a try and you wont be disappointed. I have to say though the service at the Westfield is pretty horrible, and I think most of the people I know won't go back there again because of the bad attitude of the staff there. Campbell St is okay.

We were staying near this restaurant and we noticed there were always queues to get in. Then one early evening there was not a queue so we went in! Food is excellent and plentiful. Price is reasonable. Most of the customers are oriental.
It seems that if there is a queue you put your name on a reservation slip, take your number and wait to be called.
