Great, well balanced Thai food. Not a syrupy sticky mess, and not overly spicy. Really perfect food. I didn’t have a bad bite.

The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect. They had availability when others didn’t so I had some concern, but don’t hesitate to book here. It was far far better service and food than plenty of other places. This is a new favorite for me.

The shrimp dumplings arrive cold— not just room temp. Who want cold broth? Taste was ok after you dug off all the dried chili sprinkled on top.
This restaurant prides itself ( apparently) in the hotter, the better. Except for tom yum which was bland.
Service was also bland.

Appetizers were great. Main entrees not so great. Ramen was not good. Pad thai; not enough chicken. That sweet bread dessert was horrible! Overall, a disappointment.

Food came out in a bizarrely random order, but was entirely delicious. Service was very slow, however, the restaurant did seem very busy. But we often went 20+ min without even seeing our server, just getting water was a challenge.

Sat at the bar. Great service but noise level off the chart loud. I could barely hear the person next to me. Food very good but when you want to have an evening with good food and conversation this is probably not the best place.

We ordered the Thai tacos (amazing), the ramen (delicious and spicy), the chicken satay ( good but not if you don’t like curry), the shrimp dumplings( excellent) with the sticky rice. I had a Thai basil cocktail to wash it down with which was very refreshing. Our server was lovely and the ambiance was perfect. Definitely would go back.

This is Thai food in its sophisticated form. Every dish is delicious, some are imaginative and some are quite traditional. The service is top notch. The bar is worth a visit in and of itself. The ambience is hip, just a little bit noisy, but very nicely appointed and attractive. We have enjoyed Cho Thai as a couple for both lunch and late dinner, but it would be equally fun with a group.

Food was not even close to "Thai hot," and when we asked for more spice, they gave us a pinch of spice because they were running out of peppers. I think you have a bigger problem if you are a Thai restaurant running out of Thai peppers or spice. Our server was very awkward and did not make eye contact with us the entire time. I couldn't tell if she didn't want to serve us or if that was her personality. We were a party of six and our main plates all came out at separate times, about 10-15 minutes apart. For reference, we ordered chicken satay, grilled calamari, red curry with roti, and crab claws as appetizers. The roti was the best part of the appetizers. For ou mrain dishes, we ordered 2x crab fried rice, 1x short rib drunken noodles, and 1x red curry salmon, and 1x Cho's fried chicken. The portions were average. The quality of the dishes were not match the price we paid. Either way, the combination of average tasting food and terrible service makes us never want to come back. If you want quality and authentic Thai food, you are better off picking a different restaurant.

The restaurant was beautiful and the food was good. Unfortunately the service needs improvements.

Once we were seated it took awhile before anyone came to our table. They brought our appetizer and entrees to the table next to us. Once we were done eating it took 25 mins to get the check. It looked like they only had 2 waitresses for the whole restaurant.
