I've been here many times. Have never had a bad meal.curries are really good, light and tastey. Noddle dishes are good too. They know how to make the sauces flavouful and just the right amount of spice. They understand how to make the spice level the way you want it. Portions are much better then other thai restaurants. Also they have no problem with special requests, if you want to subsitute one item for another or if you want extra or less of some thing they are happy to accommodate you. Chappen thai is one of three thai restaurants that get my repeat business.

Been here many times!! Food is always great! If you're like me, and love the little hole in the walls because the food is great, not the decor, then this place is perfect for you!
It's a small little converted house with the mom doing all the cooking in the back - talk about home style cooking!

If I would have been driving down this road looking for a place to eat, I'm sure I would have passed it up. Can't be more than 600 sq ft on the inside (dining area). Small little building that is unimpressive (maybe scary?) on the outside. I had read positive reviews on another site so decided to give it a go. WOW! The service was really great - friendly and quick. Brought me a soup while my meal was being prepared (which was a nice surprise, and pretty good soup!), and the Pad Thai was tremendous! They ask you how hot you want it on a scale of 1 - 5. I went with a 3 as I wasn't sure, and that was perfect for me (hotter than I thought it might be, but not too hot). After I cleaned off my plate, they brought me a small scoop of green tea ice cream - a great finish to a wonderful meal!

This is a very small place with only a few tables that's not fancy at all. I tried the Sweet Basil with chicken. I thought it was much better than most I have tried because of the delicious sauce and the chicken was fresh and moist. If I can knit pick it could have used a tiny bit more basil to be perfect and it could have been Thai Style with the chicken hand chopped and served with a fried egg but these are knit picky things and I do need to say again this was still very good if not outstanding but for the reasons I mentioned is why I didn't give 5 stars. I also need to mention the heat levels for food are one threw five. I picked four and it was very very hot with heat. My husband had a similar dish made with beef and noodles and it was delicious as well. Portions were bigger than I was expecting. Service was great. I plan to return when in the area.
