Authentic thai takeaway
“Chat Thai was established in 1989 and since then our aim has not changed; to bring honest and authentic thai fare to discerning and loyal sydney diners. Our menu is versatile and constantly evolving, embracing the best of regional and rural cuisines to satisfy even the most discerning of palates.”
I always thought Chat Thai would be more expensive than your usual Thai takeaways but I'm finding some of the classic dishes are very reasonably priced or even cheaper for a more authentic product. First time trying the Bangkok wings - lightly battered and fried chicken wings ($9.90) and loving them that have now become a new Simon Favourite. I'd definitely get these again to share as a starter and I like how they pack them in a cardboard box for takeaway. I'm liking the Pad Thai with prawns ($15.90) with decent sized prawns. The basic Pad Thai is only $10.90 but prawns adds an extra $5 to the dish. Panaeng curry of beef with kaffir lime leaves and basil ($11.90) is full of flavour and goes well with some steamed jasmine rice ($2.50 small). The beef becomes a little tough towards the end of the meal but the flavours of the curry keep giving some tasty satisfaction. You can't order online for a pickup so you have to call instead unless you want it delivered. Service is efficient and polite. It's a popular spot for locals to dine as well. Keep a takeaway menu handy at home as I find their website on a mobile very non-user friendly.
