The food is very affordable, we ordered 4 dishes to start with then after another four, the waitress kept checking us, kind of rushing us out. Did not enjoy the atmosphere.

Absolutely delicious food. Be prepared to queue for a table regardless of what night you come here - the time can vary from 15 minutes to 45 minutes but it is well worth it.

The restaurant itself is cramped and very very noisy so its not somewhere to go for an intimate date. Tables are cramped and you sit on stools. However, overall, the atmosphere is fun, loud and has a certain buzz - and you can see and tell from everyone's faces that they're having a great time.

Their stand out dishes are their spring rolls, bamboo shoot salad, fried fish with chilli sauce, fried fish with lemon grass and actually all the seafood dishes. All are bursting with flavour and transported you immediately to Thailand - it is that good!

I eat here anytime - prices are OK; not on the cheap side but then again, its value for money and you get what you pay for....delicious, fresh and just mouth watering yummy Thai food!

On Sunday June 2nd with my family and friends we went to Chat Thai (we are regulars) in Haymarket opposite the Capitol Theatre. The discussion was about food, naturally. But not just food at Chat Thai. Food in general in Sydney. What Sydney and in fact most of Australia does best is food. Of course there are good and bad restaurants, but generally Australia does the best food of all nationalities than any other country. If you are in France French is best, China Chinese, you get my drift. But Chinese in France is so-so. Japanese in Los Angeles is so-so. Thai in London so-so. But in Australia you get the best of world cooking in one country. Thai is terrific, Chinese fantastic, French very good. Greek - some amazing new restaurants, Italian, like mama makes. Japanese unbelievable. Chat Thai is one of those restaurants that you must visit. Fresh great food. Busy, noisy and friendly.
