Chat Thai: Dumplings and Satay, Randwick (31 Oct 2009)

222a Carrington Road, Randwick NSW 2031

Well presented & yummy Thai

One of my favourite chicken satays for many years has been at Tum Thai in Randwick but after seeing the presentation, sauce and decent size at Chat Thai I now I have another favourite to add to the list. The chicken and prawn dumplings are also good and well presented for a reasonable price. I love the traditional metal water cups they provide and the service was very friendly and efficient. I've yet to try the Haymarket Chat Thai but it's on my 2010 new years resolution of places to try — although the small Randwick restaurant seems easier to get a seat when it's not as busy.

Khanom Jeeb: Steamed wanton dumplings, filling of chicken and prawns $7 for 4

Gai Satay: Skewered and char grilled chicken fillets marinated in garlic, tumeric and coriander roots accompanied with peanut sauce and salsa of pickled cucumber and red onions $2.50 each

Beef Oyster: Tender beef strips stir fried with oyster sauce and seasonal vegetables $10.90

If it's the same as the Haymarket branch in terms of food quality, it certainly is a good alternative. Love Chat Thai's reasonable prices and great food.

hi joey, it's one of their branches but smaller and possibly doesn't have everything on the menu that haymarket has.
