    Khao Pla didn’t disappoint. The duck curry was rich and generous, the whole grilled fish papaya salad delicate flavour vs being overwhelmed by Chili and the pads were an old favourite. We indulged in the banana coconut cocktail which came in a large pottery container and lasted the whole meal. Quite good but once was enough. The other cocktails also sound intriguing. Shame we only has 90 minutes early sitting. But that’s pretty standard. I’d go back.

    Khao Pla is one of the very best This restaurants, the food is lovely, tasty and interesting. The prices are good, the service is always good and I can't recommend this highly enough. Try the Yum Salmon, the Crying Tiger, the Kra Pow and the pork belly. Also the fish specials are always good.

    We have been to this restaurant many times. We arrived at our booking time of 6pm and were told as soon as we arrived - not "welcome" BUT "you have to vacate the table by 7.30pm". We knew this as we were reminded when we made the booking. We gave our order and then waited 45 minutes before we received our food and then we were hassled to vacate at 7.30 advising there were others waiting to use our table although we could not see anyone waiting. Overall we thought they were very rude and will think twice about returning.

    Food is good but service was a bit slow and rather abrupt. We were reminded several times that we only had an hour an a half at the table and, as it turned out, no one needed our table so the repeated warnings were unnecessary as well as being unwelcoming

    We have always held Khao Pla on top of our list for great Thai food at reasonable prices and good sized servings. We took interstate friends there for a meal and was taken aback - sadly, the dishes were of not the same size as past experiences - the meals were not quite up to past times and they have reduced the size of the meals substantially.

    Terrible service, told we had to leave in 10 minutes, our main meals had just come out, service terrible we had to flag down someone to actually take our orders, so all in all definitely not enough time to digest and enjoy the meal. Disappointing

    This restaurant is a real gem in Chatswood. 6 of us had dinner and I ordered a variety of dishes to share. Every dish was exceptional- Banana flower salad, green curry with chicken , and pork belly were standouts. Service was friendly, prompt, food arrived quickly. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant and can’t wait to visit again.

    We were given a good table at a quiet corner. Unfortunately the three chairs provided were so old and tattered at the seat cushions. This reflected badly on the restaurant standard. One of the dishes pad see ewe was too salty. Also the octopus entree was undercooked and had to be returned to the kitchen. Don’t think we will visit this restaurant again. Used to be one of my fav.

    In Chatswood terms it's probably mid-level $$ The 1.5 hour limit for dining spoils your chance of impulsively adding deserts and drinks post dinner (unless you move to a different venue). It also means you are well advised to decide your order before you walk in. The service seemed more interested in seating new customers than taking orders from seated people, so I guess they are used to people walking in with their minds made up.

    Overall food was great, the first thing a customer doesn’t want to hear is that you need to be out by a certain time….that is just part of normal dining these days. Need to have more options for people who prefer mild spices.

    You’ll never go wrong if you dine at Khao Pla. I have only been to the one in Chatswood (several times) as it is geographically convenient to me. All the branches are probably of equal value.

    I love this place! Though there is a difference between each service standard from wait staff, (luck of the draw on individuals) the food is guaranteed to be always great! The set lunch menu is excellent-I tend to always order the pork belly dish - I do ask for them to go light on the chilli 🌶️ although I believe the choice is “with chilli” or “without chilli”. The green papaya salad is good and the dark sticky rice dessert is yummy 😋. This is my go to lunch place when in Chatswood.

    The food at Khao Pla is excellent. The staff are friendly, but the service is not great. The past couple of times I have eaten there my companion has finished their meal before mine has even arrived. The most recent time I visited I had a view of the kitchen and could clearly see the kitchen staff on their mobile phones. Despite this, it is enjoyable. The ambience is great and the food mostly makes up for the rest. I would still recommend.

    I absolutely love the food and vibes at this place. Overall we had great service and an awesome meal. Unfortunately the only reason I'm inclined to give a 4/5 stars is the price we paid for a bottle of 2021 Reisling...$58! I thought this a bit absurd, but it is a small sacrifice for the quality of food at this place. Would highly recommend booking in advance too - there were a lot of people turned away as they were already at capacity.

    Whilst the food was excellent, what fell short was the service. After the initial drink order was taken we waited at least 1/2 hr before anyone came to take our order. Then we waited again for a response to take a 2nd drink order. The 1 glass of wine preferred then took around 10-15 mins to arrive. I have to say I was disappointed that quality of the service didn’t match the quality of the food
