The name Chaba is Thai for Hibiscus, a name to which Buddhist Monks ascribe good fortune and success. Using only the freshest and genuine ingredients, Chaba’s Thai artisans strike a unique balance of distinct tastes. Spicy, piquant, sweet, bitter, and citrus all in delicate harmony. Each creation reflects the inspiration and the imagination of those who prepare and serve each meal.

Unavoidable circumstances caused the restaurant to be unable to serve us a full lunch, but they comped us an available app and tea. Very gracious and friendly. Have enjoyed the food on previous visits and will be back.

The food was fresh and delicious. We all had different soups and appetizers. Everyone enjoyed their starters. The cashew nut shrimp was delicious. Someone had crispy pad Thai and others had Pas Thai. All was fresh and hot.

We visited last summer when we were on vacation. We are vacationing in the area again this summer, and we made sure we went again. The food is delicious and the staff is always very friendly.

We decided to do takeout, so please ignore my ratings for ambiance, service and noise level (rating portal wouldn’t let me leave them blank, unfortunately)Food was very flavorful, prepared to the spice level requested, and generously portioned. The shrimp in the yellow curry were large, cooked perfectly and plentiful.

The food was good but the service was horrible. The hostess/waitress seemed overwhelmed and somewhat annoyed to seat me. I had to ask for a napkin, and I had no utensils when my meal arrived. My water was not refilled until I was paying the check. I was alone, and she seemed more interested in attending to the larger parties.

Chaba continues to be a well above average Thai restaurant. Menu is always changing/evolving. Try the duck noodle soup

We are new to the area and are used to Philadephia area metropolitan area choices of fabulous Thai and sushi....though we know Portland has plenty, we were THRILLED to find this gem in the Scarborough area! Genuine and fabulous Thai, exceptional sushi, friendly waitstaff. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We will be back often!

Chaba is a good, local neighborhood Thai restaurant that was overrated on your site due to the shortage of reviews---perhaps those that were entered were by "friends and family". Food was very good, fresh, delicate good flavors and spicy when called for. Food is authentic. Service was good because we were the only table occupied in the restaurant for most of our meal. However the mother and son (?) who waited on us were earnest and very accomodating and I am sure that they would work to make sure anyone's experience was a good one. Ambiance left lots to be desired. However I would recommend Chaba with caveat about ambiance.

We did not enjoy the atmosphere at Chaba Thai. Our first server was sweet and helpful but our second server was very curt and extremely rude. Our food was excellent but we will not return to this restaurant.

I have had better meals in the past there. The pad thai is usually very good. Our young woman waitress was very busy. I had to ask twice for ice in my water. The older woman was much more friendly.The waitress didn't check back but was good about bringing water.

Amazing curries and very fast service (although a little too fast for a kid free date night!)

We went to Maine for lobster and scallops. But after we had our fill of lobster rolls, we had a hankering for Thai food. Found Chaba Thai through Open Table. Their roasted duck curry was outstanding! We loved their food so much, we went back twice during our 5 day vacation.
