Easy to find, plenty of parking outside and friendly staff. Food was great: I tucked into a cracking curry and rice. Loads and loads of chicken, flavours just right and didn't wait long for it to show up. All round very enjoyable and recommended

Went out for late dinner. Were a bit under dressed for earring in. Walked past and decided to have Thai. Not disappointed at all. Roti and peanut sauce followed by Chicken green curry and spicy tofu noodles was delicious. Will go again.

Pad Thai here is the best! Been around NZ and had different versions of pad thai. Honestly, nothing has beating Chada Thai's version. Thay've got some other tasty dishes as well. Salads are also quite nice.

We visited as a group of four. Shared yummy roti then selected different mains. Good sized portions, prompt service and apart from over-crispy pork belly, all meals were enjoyed.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Had the $15 lunch special. Great Vanilla milkshake offset by flavorless prawns.

Went here as a small (work) group, recommended by family in PN. Arrived and quickly shown to the table. Not much else said as old, faded and worn menu's were plonked down. Not an extensive menu and decisions made in relatively short space of time....More
