This is absolutely the best Thai restaurant I have ever been to in the US, hands down. I travel to Thailand regularly on business, at least once or twice a year and stay there for a month at a time. So I eat a lot of Thai food from a lot of regions, and I mostly hate Thai food in... More

At the risk that Chai Thai becomes overrun with hungry restaurant-goers looking for the best Thai food around, I write this review. This place is special. We started with tamarind prawns, which were perfectly done. We also had the rice ball salad appetizer, which is a signature dish that is both spicy and chewy -- a great combination. We tried...

This place is very close to Lake Merritt so we were happy to try a new thai joint close to our home. We went there on a Friday for lunch (they shut at 3pm). Service was friendly and super fast. The restaurant and the bathroom in general was nice, cozy and clean. They had a very reasonably priced lunch specials... More

We ordered a feast for our family of three. Tom Kha soup (coconut chicken), pumpkin curry, Thai red curry - both curries were chicken, Pad See Ew chicken and spring rolls. Portions were generous and the food was delicious.

Normally I am a difficult reviewer and I actually wavered between a 4 and a 5. But the food was so surprisingly good, I opted for the five. This is a true mom and pop's off the beaten path, noisy, crowded but definitely worth the trip kind of joint. Jessica, a work colleague, took me out during a business trip... More

This review is for the Hayward location - went there on a rainy afternoon and had an amazing lunch. The staff was friendly and super attentive. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The food was hot, perfectly spiced and fresh. Loved it and plan to go back.

We've eaten here a couple of times since these folks opened this second location and the food has been excellent. We were wondering where a really good Thai restaurant could be found in Hayward and now we know! The dishes are well prepared, the presentation is very nice, and the staff is friendly. It's been quite busy when we've had... More

While we have never eaten in the restaurant, we catered five times in the last six months (we visit Northern CA often because our son and his family live here.) This is one of our all-time favorite restaurants in the Oakland area. You can order anything here and it will be good, but don't miss the crispy rice (incl. C.R.... More

This is a pretty standard Thai place with your average menu. Each time the food has been tasty and spot on. The curry portions are a bit small for the price compared to a few other places in Oakland I've tried and make sure you confirm when you order if your item comes with rice (at least one time the...
