We stopped here for a take-out because it was close to where we were staying and we wanted Thai food. The food was very good and I was allowed to make substitutions. The staff was very courteous and appreciative of our patronage.

I've been here a couple of times. My parents really like it, which means that it's safe. I prefer more authentic places but the food was tasty enough and the portions are large.

The food is perfect and the price could not be any more reasonable. Food for take out is usually ready in a few minutes. Friendly and polite staff. No waiting for tables usually.

Having experienced many Thai restaurants in the East Valley, I rate 5 R Cha Thai Bistro a solid 4+ overall. A great menu and appetizer selection, cold Singha beer and good service will always insure my return.

We went on a Sunday afternoon, ordered our food and within 10 minutes, it was brought to our table by a very pleasant young waiter.. it was colorful and steaming hot! Our waiter was attentive and the food was great tasting.

A local TV station does a weekly segment called 'Dirty Dining' where they list Valley restaurants which have had health code violations (as well as those with a perfect score). Unfortunately, soon after our last visit, this restaurant was reviewed and 'led' the pack with 5 'major health code violations'. You might want to consider this.
