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.

We found this great Thai place on Sandy Blvd. yesterday. The interior was really pretty and very well detailed. One of the best Thai places I have every been to. The food was very well presented with flavors out of this world. Nice seating but if a large group be sure and call ahead. Takeout is also an option! Loved... More

My husband & I phoned in an order at 8:00pm on New Year's Eve. This was our second experience, having had dinner there with a friend who suggested the restaurant about a month ago. We thought our meal then was very, very good, which is why we decided to go back for takeout. We ordered egg rolls, tempura and pork... More

We have been going to both Chaba Thai locations for years---love them both. The NE Alberta location has the easy family-friendly ambience and seating (outside too), with no lines. The original NE Sandy location has really excellent food, but gets crowded. So both are great! The dishes are made with fresh ingredients, deep flavors with good vegetarian options, and good...
