“Sawadee Chat Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

No doubt, the best Thai restaurant in Sydney and the prices are extremely reasonable. It is always crowded because the food is delicious! :)

“Great cheap Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

I really love this restaurant, I live very close and i go there twice a week basically.

The food is really tasty, you should definitely try the crispy pork belly in red curry paste and the pork skewers.

They are extremely fast and the price is completely affordable, you can have a good dinner for 20$pp and go home completely full!

The kitchen is also open until very late, that is a kind of rarity for Sydney!

“Recommend it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

My partner and I enjoyed authentic Thai cuisine in Sydney.
Thai Chat located in China town. As we stayed close Hotel to this Chat Thai we noticed a long queue nightly which is always a good sign. After 30 mins waiting, we were able to get in and ordered Papaya Salad, Fried Rice, Tom Yam Kun, and Thai Ice tea. Our order came quickly and the service was efficient. All dishes are spicy and delicious, and no wonder they have long line in front of this restaurant every night.

“Busy for a reason ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

The reviews are spot on and this place is worthy of it's top reviews. As we stayed close to this Chat Thai (Campbell St) we noticed a line up nightly which is always a good sign and tonight it was our turn. We walked straight in as we were early at 5:30 but as we left there was a busy line up outside. The service, drinks, food and service very quick, very traditional and oh so delicious!!! My only negative would be we did feel a little watched and rushed to get on with it and get out, but with small children that is always our plan :-) My only regret.... We left the visit to our last night in Sydney. I would have loved another meal there.
