Big restaurant, typical thai food. Ordered thai soup, pizza for kids and some banana split. Found it a bit expensive, otherwise good. They a drop service to your resorts in the area which was very comfortable for us.

We Went to Chaba 2 years ago and the food was very good. I was surprised to find so many negative comments on Tripadvisors, and decided to try again this time. So pleased to find the place renovated, we were seated next to the lily pond with the beautiful sunset. The food quality was still good, though the tiger prawns... More

Chaba Restaurant is located on Soi Cherng Talay at the Laguna Resorts entrance. The restaurant is huge and located next to a lagoon filled with lily pads. I have just finished reading some Trip Advisor reviews which say service is nonexistent, food is rubbish, do not go there etc etc. We found the service to be very quick and efficient,... More

We had lunch there and just now read all the bad reviews which are somewhat surprising. Yes it was expensive, though I think that is mainly because of the added-on tax and service charge. We had steamed fish with lemon which was fresh and tasty (the waitress had told us roughly how much it would be as it is priced... More

It was our first night in Phuket and as we were staying in the Laguna area we took the shuttle to the entrance and thought that we would have a walkabout and check out the local restaurants. The first place we came across was Chaba and as it did look the part we thought we would give it a go... More

This has been the worst restaurant in Thailand that I have ever experienced. We have received 4 menus! Some positions were doubled. To go through the whole thing looking for something to eat has been quite challenging. By serving the staff didn't know who ordered what - we were 7 pax. So they were looking whom to serve what. With... More

We were going to look online for a highly recommended place before eating but we were starving after our massage so came here. The restaurant was massive but only 2 tables were occupied. We were seated by the windows, with the blinds down to stop the wind. We ordered drinks and starters first. We ordered mains when starters came. The... More
