Quality Thai food at reasonable prices. Good shrimp rolls, soups, curry dishes, nice service, sweet iced tea. Cool place to go when you don't fee like cooking. Nice service. Best to get there early before it crowds up. Great for families with kids.

Good service and above average Thai food, very little ambiance. All the food we ordered was very good the golden bags were ok but the Cholada wraps with shrimp were excellent. All entrees were enormous in size and very flavorful and not that spicy, although we were warned that they would be very spicy. We enjoyed Panang sea bass, spicy... More

This small intimate place has the tasty Thai I have tasted in LA. The dishes are fresh and simple with just the perfect amount of spice for your palette. The staff is friendly and fast and the parking is easy. Being across from the ocean doesn't hurt either if you want to take a moonlit stroll after dinner!

Our group of 10 had a lot of fun here. The servers were interactive and very attentive. And our food came out really quick. The patio in the back we sat in is nothing to talk about, but there were a ton of heaters which was really nice on a chilly evening. As for the food, I would say it... More

Our office likes to use Cholada for our meetings and will continue on doing so. It would be so much better if there was a delivery option, but the food is still amazing.

Authentic Style Thai Kitchen with funky Beach atmospher. Indoor and outdoor seating with Thai staff that is on top of things. Try the Crispy Rice Salad with Ground Chicken. It's fantastic! Great staples too like Pad Thai, Noodles and Curries.

This is a place I've pasted a million times. I've heard it was good,but still time after time I've driven by, thought about it, but never stopped. Tonight my dad and I were heading back to Calabasas from West LA about 7:00 both a bit ready for dinner and there it was Cholada, calling to us. SO happy we stopped.... More

We did not expect such delicious Thai food to be served at a shack practically on the beach in Malibu! When we walked in, there were a few women sitting at a table trimming a huge mound of snow peas, so I had a feeling the veggies would be fresh and crisp ... and they were!! Chicken Satay is often...

We've been coming here for years!!! Great local spot. Thai food is our favorite and at Cholada we always order the same thing ... yellow curry with shrimp, vegetable fried rice, Pad Thai with Chicken, Golden Bags and Chicken Satay. Casual dining right off the PCH! Easy to call in and pick up.
