We frequent Chada for takeaways, and while the food is always edible, we find that while we always ask for the same heat - Thai medium - it never seems to be the same twice in a row.

That said, the Pineapple Duck Curry is awesome, as is the Tom Yum Soup, Grilled Chicken, and Roti.

It’s a little on the pricey side, but it always a good go-to when you want a good meal.

Apologise that it is difficult to control the heat of the chilli in different lots even though our chefs have regularly standardized the amount of chilli that they added for medium hot and hot hot in each dish. Also, we can not taste the spiciness of the dish that we sell to the customers.

What we could try our best is the amount of chilli from our chefs.

Thank you for the comments.

Visited with my parents, brother, sister in law and nephews and what a find this place is!
Meals were bought out very quickly, fantastic service and family friendly. Great value for money too. Family were impressed with how well fed we all were for such a great price. Will definitely be back!

Excellent Thai food. Don't be put off by the slightly shop front look and having to order your food at the counter - the food is definitely worth it. We ate here two nights in a row when staying in Palmerston North because the food was too good to go anywhere else. The food was excellent value and being BYO was great too. Can't wait to return

They charged me extra $2 for the tomyum fried rice, which is ridiculous, it is just a bit of tomyum paste in the fried rice, not much different from the normal fried rice. The dishes were not cheap at all, but they still do surcharge for such a small thing. What a greedy restaurant! Never come back

Hi

We made our own Tom Yum paste from scratch from fresh herbs in New Zealand. It costs us about $50-$60 per kg after preparation. Kaffir lime leaf, $80-$100 per kg, Lemongrass $25 per kg. corriander (stem and root only, no leaves) $20/kg. When we make it, we will do about 6-7 kg at a time. Simmer and stir it for 2 hours continuously.

The service in this fast food restaurant was indifferent and amateurish, and the food... well the platter of deep-fried bits and bobs were ok, but hard to get wrong, but when it came to our main courses, we had asked for our red chili curries to be “medium hot”, what we were given was too hot to be edible. We went somewhere else for dessert, so disappointing.
