    The resturant was located in a good spot near the train station which was perfect for our little outting. The menu was quite unique where there was alot to choose from. The only thing about the resturant is the seating arranagement. I requested a window seat however the seat for two only one person had the widow and the other was next to a wall. Also the tables where to close to each other which felt uncomfortable at times and I feel like more space between tables would be more better.

    Nice food as usual. The least favourite was the spring roll, very thin and hardly see any filling.

    It’s a great place to meet if you have friends coming in from all over Sydney being right on Circular Quay. A public transport hub! The food is delicious and they have some really unusual and unique thai dishes. Service is a bit meh but it fast and efficient. So go just knowing you’ll have a great meal with delicious food you might not have ever tried before at a thai restaurant. Wine list is ok but seriously I’d stick to the beers which go so well with this food.

    We’d dined here before and enjoyed the good food and speedy service. Unfortunately tonight we were left waiting for about 20mins for drinks and 45 mins for food, and then they had forgotten one of the food items. Disappointed as we’d brought a friend here and had talked up how much we usually enjoy the place.

    Our first time. Bit of a wait for food, but understandable as it was busy. Food was amazing. Will definitely go back in the future.

    The food and service was great. Ordered 2 entrees, 3 mains and rice to share. Plenty food for everyone. It was a little noisy on the back wall where the air conditioning sat right above you so book a seat facing the window on a round table.

    Very disappointing experience. Meals were delivered to the table 20mins apart form each other & were bland. A wrong meal was sent back only for the correct dish to be delivered as we were leaving and ordered to pay for it. We were off to theater so who wants to carry that. I was here 5 months ago and it was great but there was only 2 of us. This booking was for 9, only 2 people enjoyed their meals. Not sure if they have a new chef for the meals to be so slow and not delivered all together. Won't be back unfortunately

    Whilst the food is always of a high standard and super full of flavour and heat, the restaurant is let down by average service and a lack of wine availability - we were forced to order three different white wine bottles as each time they said they were out of stock until only the most expensive was available ! We were half way through our meal before we actually received the wine.

    We were early arriving but were received with a smile and directed to our table beside a window which is what I requested on booking. The menu is very extensive but easy to follow and even has each dish listed it Thai and English which helps. We chose three dishes and they were all delicious and quite enough to feed two people. If I was to make a small complaint it would be that the window we sat near was filthy with hand prints which obstructed our view, a minor detail, it didn’t spoil our meal.

    The dishes on the menu are different from the other outlets, which is great, as they seem more traditional too! Large portions too,though is expected for the price.

    Chat Thai is my favourite Thai restaurant. Today unfortunately I think the duck may have been a bit off. Both myself and my friend felt very sick in the stomach . The massaman beef was overly sweet . Normally I go back and back to this place . But something wasn’t right today. I definitely will go back but was but disappointed today

About the restaurant

Chat Thai was created almost 25 years ago to serve as a meeting place for diners to socialise and chat about Thai cuisine (and food in general), thus 'chat' Thai.

Now a successful franchise with a winning reputation, these guys do beautiful simple food that's designed to be shared with friends and family.

Get here and enjoy all the classics, plus some innovative additions that are well worth a try.

Best dish: stir fried roast duck, fresh chilli and holy basil with fried egg and rice.
