My favourite Thai restaurant anywhere. Great tasting,good portions good service and fair prices. Not really the best atmosphere as it’s a repurposed bank but the food is delicious.

I was looking for a decent place to eat while touring Halifax. I ordered take away due to Covid-19. The food was delicious and the portion was a lot larger than I anticipated. I would definitely come back to Cha Baa Thai if I wasn’t...leaving tomorrow. I visited the Halifax Queen locationMore

Had family dinner at Cha Baa Thai on a rainy day. We each ordered a different soup (wonton, hot and sour and coconut) and a few plates to share. Way too much, but everything was so delicious. Soups are very filling with lots of protein...and some of the best we had (h&s and coconut in particular). The sharing plates were huge and honestly one plate would likely have been plenty. But always happy to have left overs!More

We ate at this restaurant many years ago when our grand-daughters were in the NICU at the IWK and wanted to come back to enjoy the excellent food. The food was just as good this time and the service from Merry was quick, friendly and...efficient. The Pad Thai was very good as was the ginger chicken. There was enough food left over that we could warm it up for lunch the next day. We especially enjoyed the very nice dinner music and appreciated that it was kept at a low volume. Will definitely be back when we are in Halifax again.More

We had the Pinapple Rice.. very good, the Pad Thai.. very good and the Sweet and Sour Beef.. we both found this to be too sweet for our liking. Overall I would give the meal a 4/5. Not being familiar with Thai food I should...have asked "is there MSG in any of this? " I fogot ...but realized soon after Migraine for 2 days. So I likely would not go back, but if you can tolerate MSG enjoy.More

New place with very tasty food. The service was very good, waiting time for food is fast. Pad thai is amazing.

Best Thai food in Halifax by far! It is always consistent and you always leave extremely full and satisfied. I had the Stir Fried Red Curry Chicken (my fav!), and it was exactly as I remembered it. One of those dishes that the more you...eat it, the more you love it. So much garlic and ginger, I can’t say enough good things. The service here is just order taking but that’s how they want it, and it works.More

Ordered take-out, recieved a large rice instead of a pad thai dish (I paid for a pad thai dish and had already ordered a rice) called the restaurant (as it was closing time there, rather than returning to the restaurant) who promised to provide my...pad thai and a complimentary spring roll order for the inconvenience, they said it would be kept on record with my phone number, for the next time I placed an order. When I called back to place a subsequent order they said they had no record of it and would not be honouring their promise to correct their mistake, they also questioned whether I called the right restaurant, etc. Poor customer service and average food. Won’t be going back there, won’t be recommending them, other options in the area with better menu options.More
