“A delightful addition to downtown Lindsay”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We love Thai food but generally have only Toronto restaurant experiences with the cuisine, other than making pad thai at home. We were not at all disappointed with Chaba Thai and loved the food and the experience. The pad thai was authentic and delicious and the appetizer plate was delicious and included spring rolls, shrimp rolls, rice wrapped veggie rolls and a wonderful mango salad. It also came with three dipping sauces, including a peanut sauce. Our (very sweet and attentive) waitress suggested that the pad thai portions were so large that we could easily share one and have plenty, so that left us room to try a wonderful desert of "bananas in sweet coconut sauce". It was spectacular. One suggestion...if you love pad thai, order a plate each. We could easily have eaten more and gone without desert. Oh, and the green tea was served in a beautiful large oriental mug with a lid...very quaint...and the decor is relaxing burnt orange walls, corresponding wallpaper, and cushions on many of the bench seats. Seating is spacious, and if you aren't seated at the bench seating, it appears that the tables and chairs provide ample space for a party of four, and more tables could be joined together for a larger group. Dont' miss this great addition to downtown Lindsay. I can easily see the east end of Kent Street (just west of Lindsay Street) becoming restaurant row, with an eclectic mix of restaurants moving in!

“Delicious food”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

My second visit to Chaba Thai was as good as the first. Delicious spring rolls and lemon grass soup - spicy, but not too hot. The spicy beef noodles were great!

“First time costumer”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Had the green curry beef and it was fantastic! Spring rolls were dynamite, so was the sweet and sour chicken. The only item I wad not thrilled with was the veggie cold rolls they needed cilantro or something!

“Better than Toronto Thai”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

This restaurant is exactly what Lindsay needs! A little culture and great food! The spring rolls and raw ones are both amazing! Their pad Thai is the real deal! I highly recommend!

“Loved it!!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This restaurant just opened on Kent Street in Lindsay, next to the York Hotel. They have another Thai restaurant in Cobourg, but the owner has been driving here every day to make sure that everything is running smoothly. I had the mango salad which was very fresh and flavorful. My husband had a sweet and sour soup, a couple of spring rolls and a delicious beef and cashew dish served with rice. The owner brought us complimentary ginger tea ( tea flavoured with fresh ginger and a light sweetner). If you are a fan of Thai food....give it a try...you won't be disappointed!!
