My son goes here all the time & finally took me (Thai is my favorite food). There's a full service restaurant, Thai deli & grocery store. Everything you could possibly want & need. The restaurant is decorated beautifully but sit outside. The street is always fun & exciting & you can bring your dog!!! I recommend the fried tofu &... More

What an incredibly beautiful place for dinner. Not only are you impressed by the surroundings, but the food is perfect. specially for those of you who love Phad Thai as much as I do. I find that consistency is everything , specially when you have a preferred dish. Moon the owner is on top of her game. A fabulous Chef... More

We used to frequent Chabaa Thai Bistro in its former location many years ago, until we had a few mediocre meals and stopped going. We tried them in their new location over the holidays and were so pleased at how great it was again. The curries were fabulous and the venue is attractive. We loved our teas as well. The... More

This may have been the slowest service experienced in a long time. And it is not as if the food was that good. Meals did not come out together. Often the food was not hot. Not sure whether they did not have enough staff or what. On the plus side, it is a beautiful setting.

Great Thai food. We ordered a chicken skewer appetizer that was good. Been to other places, but this place served amazing curry. I got the red curry and my wife got the green curry. My red curry had some heat to it and my wife's was more mild. She got a chicken curry and I got the beef. Definitely pleased... More

We had been to Chabaa a couple years back and would have given it five stars then. Then currently are merged in with their Japanese restaurant down the block. The place is average, the food was average. Though the women who runs it is still very present, none of our dishes were memorable. And then we got a $5 bottle... More

I love Thai food and this is one of the best -- maybe even THE best -- Thai restaurants I've dined in during my nearly 30 years living in Philadelphia. Chef Moon shows her deft touch and authentic roots. She clearly cares about the quality -- and her customers; it is not at all unusual, at least during non-rush times,... More

A pretty standard menu for Thai and a very small menu at that. The Tom Yum soup was very fresh and tasty, though not spicy no matter what level of spice you ordered it. A little pricy at $5 a cup - the whole menu was a little pricey. The assorted appetizers was boring. The winner was the luxurious green... More
