The owner is really friendly and helpful. We ate way too much though thanks to the delicious food. We can recommend the papaya salad.

I've eaten here many times. Tasty cheap food and great service. Mr Chai is very friendly as chats with all the customers. Thoroughly recommend if you're in kata beach.

This raodside restaurant is sooo busy all the time, we decided we had to give it a try. We were not disappointed, as the food was good , although not all the dishes came out together! It's very reasonably priced for both the food & the drinks, but if you like spicy thenh you must stipulate. A main meal for... More

We were actually on our way to one of the places we found on trip advisor but walking past this place we had to stop. There were lots of people in here-most were Thai. If it hadn't been for the people we probably would of kept walking. Lucky we stopped! The food was absolutely amazing. The spring rolls, soup, curry,... More

Don't be put off by the "cafe" look and feel of this place, the food was probably the best we had in Kata and we tried quite a few places! Amazing value, once we found it we kept going back. The currys are amazing and the good thing is they are all mild as standard, you have to ask if... More

We have just spent 10 days in Kata, and dined out at Chai Thai on several occasions. The food is simple but nice. Chai & his friendly staff provide great service & we will return to this restaurant again.

The owner opened the restaurant to mainly cater for the tastes of Chinese, Korean, Japanese and other far eastern countries, Hence the menu of Thai dishes but with very little or no chillies. They will prepare with spice if required, just ask. We visited a couple of times and were impressed with the speed and efficiency of service, cleanliness and... More

We went looking for the Kitchen something or other but there were several restaurants with similar names on Tripadvisor, others had made the same mistake as well as the Tripadvisor photos for the same place showed pictures of different restaurants!
