We were looking forward to visiting Chaobaby after going a year ago on a previous trip to the area and thoroughly enjoying it. However, this trip was extremely disappointing. The rice was room temperature at best and had clearly been sitting for a while, the curries were very watery and the selection just wasn't up to par. As a vegetarian,... More

Usually one of our favourite places to eat but it was noticeably poorer than usual. There was no slow cooked beef, the main courses were all watery and bland. The soups were still fantastic but the rest was very average. Hopefully it was just a one off! As it's a usually great Thai buffet

We've eaten here on many occasions. Set price self service buffet dining. Truth of the matter is unless your a glutinous greedy person you won't necessarily get great value for money. However the food is great and as there's so much choice we like eating here as you get try a 'little bit' of several different dishes. Instead of a... More

We had the lunchtime buffet on a friday. It's £2 cheaper on monday to thursday but to be fair you can eat £14.99 worth of meat if you have a reasonable appetite. The food is varied and well cooked. The plates are smallish but you can just keep refilling it. The starters and sweets are also scrummy too. Not the... More

We called in on a busy Valentine's Day evening. We were seated straight away. Waitress took an age to take our drinks orders but after that it was plain sailing. There is just a nice number of choices for a mid-week or off chance meal, soup, rices, chicken, fish, curry made to order, salad. We have 2-3 platefuls and were... More

Passed this up numerous times in favour for TGI Fridays, this time we changed it up.... Was busy but was seated within a minute... Ordered our drinks... The cherry temple is very nice..... Buffet food was tasty and in various ways, I thought more of a selection is needed as mainly a lot of the dishes are similar.... However I... More

Great place to eat. I had the buffet and it was delicious. I also love the flowering tea- you can see the flowers open up right before your eyes. Fab!

It was okay. A range of thai currys and finger foods like spring rolls and fried toast. I wouldn't say it has the best selection ever though but for only £12 compared to its counterpart cosmo, I guess you get what you pay for. That said, I highly recommend the chicken curry soup. With peanuts (if you aren't allergic). Ace!

Chaobaby is an eat all you can Thai food buffet restaurant. We've had meals there 2 or 3 times now and enjoyed each experience. As other reviewers have commented, the choice is not huge, but the food is replaced fairly frequently with freshly cooked food, soups are made to order and the drinks service and plate collecting service is quick.
