Food was delicious and service quick. The place gets very busy but the service does not suffer for it. Had the pad Thai, coconut bubble tea and curry puffs. Curry puffs were freshly fried and so tasty. Pad Thai had great flavours and the bubble tea a nice treat. Highly recommend.

Central location in Palmerston North, broad menu, quick service, over supplied on the drinks that were ordered and additionally charged accordingly. Upon the meals arriving requested an additional egg advised would cost $1.00 charged $3.00, would not go back as this was not customer focused and more about business profitability. Meals average.

My friend and I had a lovely meal tonight here after the movies. Had never visited as we normally visit the restaurants on the other side of Broadway Ave (for no particular reason). We were pleasantly surprised to see it was also licensed. We both had Laksa soup, medium hot and it was quickly delivered, very flavoursome with beautiful presentation.... More

I have been craving Pad Thai and met up with some friends here for dinner. The menu is extensive with a hugely variety of Asian "style" options, many more western style Chinese than Thai and even random things like Fish and Chips I ordered the vegetable Pad Thai and a flat white. It's a super busy place with no frills.... More

I was visiting the local university and a friend took me here. We had a good time at this place. Attentive staff and good, fresh food at a reasonable price.

Nice authentic flavours cooked well. Good service and a healthy choice of drinks. Could have done with something to read while I waited.

Fourth time at Chada Thai and it just gets better. Recently renovated bringing a crisp and fresh ambience which complements the menu. We highly recommend this little slice of Thailand smack bang in the middle of Palmerston North. Well priced with such friendly hosts good.

Fish in lemongrass sauce was delicious. My only suggestion would be to place the lovely fresh green salad on the side perhaps, so as not to be smothered by the sauce. Friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely go back.
