Went here for a family event. They quickly pulled tables together for a group of eight and had us seated in a few minutes. Granted it was 5pm on a Sunday and the place was pretty empty, but they were on the ball. The place was full by the time we left a hour and a half later. Service was... More

We go here often for lunch and the food is consistently delicious. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. The Pad Thai is tasty!

We ate outside in the warm sun. The food was very good. I had noodles and shrimp, our grandson had crispy catfish, someone had ribs, and everyone shared plates.

We've ordered takeout from Chaba Thai (on Sandy) at least once a month for the last 5 years. The food is fresh, the portions generous and menu has a lot of choices. My only complaint is that the spiciness level for "medium" has been inconsistent over the last year and usually on the too hot side. Otherwise, we're super loyal... More

I have one Thai place that I rely on often, but sometimes I'll try other places in the area. Cha Ba Thai was a great surprise! I went here on a Sunday afternoon and it was a little busy. The host smiled and sat us immediately. The selection is like most Thai places. Atmosphere is small neighborhood feel. I love... More

Second visit with group of 12; called ahead and added two at nearly reservation time. VERY busy but took care of us and everyone else; takeouts included!! Egg roles were so fresh. The green papaya salid was amazing; calamari was perfect and the crispy duck was over the top good. Service was fast but we enjoyed a full two hours... More

We used to patronize this popular neighbourhood restaurant fairly frequently when visiting our family in Portland (about 12 times annually). Our perception over the past year is of declining serice and more of a desire to turn over the tables. We are a family of 6 which includes our (now) 6 year old granddaughter. Cha B.A. Thai imposes an automatic... More

Good place for Thai if you are already in NE. I have always though the kitchen looks a little... Parking can be a little hard near the entrance. You may need to walk a block or two.
