This BYOB is one of the best-kept secrets on the Carlisle Pike. The entrees and service were excellent and BYOB kept the price so reasonable. Don't miss out!

Great place for a date! Service was very pleasant and atmosphere is super cozy. Their rice is very unique and curries are super flavorful. You won't be taking home any leftovers like you would if you ate at Bangkok Wok down the street, but portions are a decent size. Looking forward to my next visit!

I've been to Chalit's numerous times. I've gone with my husband a few times and then took my son and grandson when they visited. The staff is friendly and the place is predictably busy because of its popularity. However, we've been able to get a table without too much delay.

Like most of the reviewers here, I've had excellent meals and appetizers are wonderful, especially the Buddha dumplings. The ingredients taste fresh while the flavors are complex. We like some items better than others, because of our taste preferences, not because there's something wrong with any choice.

Chalit's always delivers good service and food. That's all I expect from a restaurant, so it's always on our short list of places to eat out in the area.

We have been loyal customers of Chalit's Thai Bistro since it opened a few years ago. We have always been impressed. The taste is traditional Thai (for those that know good Thai food) and such great variety on the menu. Great regular specials keep it interesting with each visit. We have a gluten sensitivity in our family and the staff is knowledgable and eager to meet our needs. We never have a lack of choices. We also love the BYOB policy. When we bring a bottle of wine, they supply the glasses and open the bottle for us as if we had purchased from them. Our bill stays lower, and we get exactly the wine we want. The setting in the Bistro itself is true to its name. Intimate and well decorated, this is a wonderful atmosphere for an intimate dinner or a larger group and it all fits together at the same time Ina small space.

We visited Chalit's on a Friday evening, because we didn't have reservations (which are recommended) we arrived when they opened for dinner at 4:00 p.m. and had no problem with being seated quickly. The menu has a large number of different items and many spice options to suit just about every need, just ask and they will make your choice any way you want it. The food itself was delicious, good sized portions and very well prepared. We would rate the value to portion size at a strong B+. Our waitress was very, very friendly, attentive and super prompt with drink refills. This restaurant isn't on the small side, nor is it too large, its very well decorated and clean. We will be sure to return as soon as possible to try some different items. Thanks for a great dinner!!
