Hands down to the best Thai restaurant in Syd. Amazing food, fast service & affordable. My def go-to place when i dont know what to eat. Always take my friends from interstates to this restaurant when they are in town. However they will kinda "kick you out" the moment you finish your meals as they are super busy. That's the... More

Walked past this place- people queuing to get in so thought it must be good. Ordered a takeaway- maybe they are less bothered about this side of the business because it was not great. Pad si ew was bland and tasteless. The small portion of som Thai not much better- this is supposed to be a fresh and punchy salad... More

Chat Thai offer you a very Authentic thai food instead of amend and blend in with local, western taste. The place is always pack during lunch and dinner time, if you don't like the waiting time, try to go in between 3pm-5pm. Interior decor was good, with the front open concept kitchen where you could see how they prepare your... More

Upon arrival we put our names on the waiting list as there are no bookings. The wait was about 15 minutes on a Saturday night. We were seated on the tiniest table nearest the kitchen and beside other tables so close we are on top of other people. We were then moved upstairs to a shared table which was a... More

Chilli chicken rice, duck and green vegetables and grilled barramundi was delicious washed down with cold beer. Fabulous!

The first day I was in Sydney I had the best meal at Chat Thai, soft shell crab with a salad which had coriander and green papaya. It was absolutely delicious. After the lunch there I was craving this meal for days on end and finally I went back and it was not the same- there wasn't any coriander and... More

It's a great restaurant which was filled even at 1:30 am.... there were many thai customers around....So, it should be good. The dishes names are really difficult...the chicken dish with the sauce was excellent... the mango with sticky rice ... out of the world.... :) :)

Visited for lunch and yes the restaurant was full. I was seated on a share table which is fine. Food came out very fast. Great service. The menu was great and I really enjoyed the food.. Just wish my stomach was bigger so I could have tried more options. Definitely recommend and will return

One of the best Thai restaurants, very good foods, price and atmosphere. But 4 rate because I always had to wait for having seats.

Whilst the food was good, when it eventually arrived - the scattered arrival of the 5 meals, plus the last one taking over 30minutes, is entirely unacceptable for a work day lunch time sitting. All 5 of us ordered our dishes just before 12.30pm today. Two of the dishes arrived within 5 minutes. Another one arrived another 5 minutes later... More
