Papaya salad servings were gone by the time we ordered. So we enjoyed our salad for dessert and we're very glad we did. We tasted and shared #'s 5, 17 and 38 from the menu. The Tom Yum was delicious and despite ordering it medium hot, it wasn't too much. The medium garlic and pepper sauce on the #38 was... More

this strip shopping mall restaurant offers authentic thai flavor profiles, especially in the noodle dishes. the broth is intense with the aromatic scents of that region's cuisine. the shrimp were cooked nicely but the duck was just bit overdone. rice noodles matched well with these dishes. service was friendly,but a bit slow. there appeared to be only two wait staff...

We spent two weeks in Thailand in August. Now we can stay close to the food we love with Cha Da Thai. The selections are wonderful and "mama" is in the back making the good stuff. Phad Thai is amazing. I can't spell the other dishes - we had duck the other night and it too was great. Panang shrimp;... More

This family owned business is a little gem in the heart of Scottsdale. One of our favorite places to eat Thai food. The food is fresh and very tasty. Service is great and the staff real friendly and helpful. The place has a certain charm about it, and one would think you could be somewhere in Thailand.

A good friend took me to Cha Da to partake of their unique soup bowls that were well priced on the lunch menu. The soup arrived hot and savory, full of noodles , spices and ground chicken. Fresh sprouts were provided, and I was unable to finish such a large portion. If you enjoy Thai food, DO NOT MISS THIS... More

It was my first time for thai food and I loved it. We did takeout so it was a bit cold when we got home but it was still fabulous. Will definitely go back.

Have been back several times now. I've had wonderful, authentic, Thai food in Chicago, and the West Coast, and Cha Da Thai is right up there with the best. They are careful about the heat, always asking how spicy you like, everything is well prepared and served artfully. The dining room is tasteful, and the staff is attentive and quick.... More

We had the avocado rolls with peanut sauce. Add a few mint leaves for a wonderful, subtle taste. All the dishes we had were well seasoned and interestingly flavored. They also offer different levels of hot.

Came here over the lunch hour per a friends recommendation. Had salad, jasmine tea and yellow mild chicken curry. The best curry I have ever had in my entire life. So much so that I was craving it and wanted to go back a second time during my trip. Now, to find a place like this in my home state!... More
