We frequent this place occasionally when in Maine and have a hankering for Thai food. The food is always good but not outstanding like other places we've visited in New England so I would recommend it if you're in the Bridgton area.

We were in the area for an event and stopped here for dinner. I loved how they could do different levels of spiciness to accommodate our request. Having been to numerous Thai restaurant, I would consider the food here was well prepared but not great. I'm used to punchy tastes of Thai food and felt that they could add more... More

Stopped as a family for dinner just before 6 PM on a Friday. Saw some okay reviews and some poor but thought we would try. Ordered 2 pad Thai and 2 pad kii mau. Service was terrible, just like others have said. Poured our own drinks, set our own place. Dishes came out fast and were fairly small. Spices were... More

I'm torn between three and four stars here. The food is awesome, love the ginger chicken, but wish there were a few more apps on the menu. The service and decor leave a lot to be desired. They always seem to be training another teenager and rookie mistakes abound (paper-wrapped straws thrown down in a puddle of water, silver left... More

During another one of my days off, myself and a few of my friends got lunch at Chao Thai. I ordered the lunch special Pad Grapao, with 2 stars of spice. Because I ordered the lunch special my meal started with a small cup of hot Thai chicken and noodle soup. The soup came with just the right amount of... More

Wow! We were very pleasantly surprised to find this wonderful store front restaurant in Bridgton Maine. This restaurant is all about really fresh ingredients in their dishes. We had the Pad Thai and a chicken ginger dish. They were both excellent. Even though our waiter served our order to another couple, the inconvenience of having to wait a little longer... More

Authentic delicious flavor in everything I've tried. Be cautious with the spice. 2 stars is a healthy amount of heat! Their Pad Thai is one of the best you've ever had!

This little hole in the wall is a great place for Thai food. Always fresh. Family owned. Takes a while to get your food, but will be worth the wait. Reasonable prices. Not always open so call before you go check it out? Bridgton is up and coming. The way life should be!

Had the Pad Thai. It was spicy and just darn good. I would recommend this place, because there just isn't that many good Thai places in Maine.

We have ordered take out quite a few times and the food was warm and very good. The one problem is that it isn't open all the time and you never know when it will be open.
