Excellent food, great service, good location, what more could one want? No bookings, just write your name on the list at the entrance and you will be called when a table becomes available. Great bustling, busy, noisy atmosphere, wonderful place to eat at reasonable prices for good Thai food.

We arrived at Chat Thai slightly after 10pm, and was greeted by a long queue. The staff managed the crowd really well, and after 15 minutes, we were happily seated and ordered quite a few staples from the extensive menu. The dishes did not disappoint at all. Realizing we had a birthday girl in our party, the whole restaurant actually... More

We waited outside for more than 15 minutes in a long queue, but it was obviously worthy it. We had great dinner in Chat Thai, excellent Thai cuisine, which was even better than what I'd tried in Thailand before. I love Thai milk tea and Mango sticky rice dessert, everything was so perfect. Very friendly and attentive staffs

Very busy. Had to line up for a while but the wait was well worth it. Great service great ambiance but above all great food. Very reasonably priced and near the theater for pre-show dinner. Can't recommend highly enough

Had a meal there with family for lunch. Found the food very good all present enjoyed. Of course it is Thai fare, the staff were friendly and helpful. We had various dishes, including, prawns, and meat. It is BYO which is always an asset. We had an unhurried meal there, and would go again

We have been going to this restaurant since it literally opened, even then they were long lines outside the restaurant. You have to understand that the restaurant is not huge and not a place to stay all night with your friends, especially with the massive queue outside. Since I could remember, you could never book this place, and the longest... More

Don't be put off by the queues to get in to this place, the food is so worth the wait! This is worth booking in advance as it can get very busy due to its popular food! The atmosphere is authentic and the food is absolutely amazing!!! The staff treat you like kings and the entire experience was stunning. We... More

It's same traditional taste as in Thailand. We came here twice and average waiting time was about 20 minutes. But you won't feel disappointed about food.
