I just needed a Thai lunch today, and was very glad to take a recommendation from locals. My wife and I decided to order a la carte instead of choosing from the attractive and tempting $15 set lunch menu. We chose the starter platter for two, along with side dishes of salad and rice noodles. Perfect. Each component was delicious, and although the items on the platter are fairly standard, each was cooked to maximise flavour and texture. Most other places serve 5 pieces per person; Chada includes 6.

I particularly appreciated the care that has gone into producing the sauces - even the mayonnaise on the salad is obviously home made, with hints of orange (I think!) The sate sauce is delicious, though I’d spice it up a little more with chilli flakes (provided!) Plenty of reasons to return to this lovely place. Considering the attention to detail in flavour balance and presentation, the prices are extremely reasonable. I think some of the critical reviews must come from people who usually buy from cheap take-away outlets.

Strawberry-mint mock tail was a surprisingly delicious find, and some people would find it a good accompaniment for hot curry.

We were a large group of around 16 people of all ages. We showed up on a Sunday nite around 7pm no sooner had we ordered food starting coming. The service was quick and fast and the food came out quickly also. We were very hungry so we really appreciated that the food came out so quickly. Food was wonderful and the price matched. I had a chicken laksa, not too spicy just right for me. Beer was well priced also. If you want a cheap eat with great service head to Chada Thai.

We felt like a thai lunch so came across chada thai while visiting Palmerston North. They had a great lunch special which was an entree and a main for $15 - two of us had green curry chicken as our main and it was as good and as hot as I have had it in Thailand.

My daughter took me to Chada That for a belated birthday. The service was on point very little waiting time before our meals arrived.
The food was delicious, the table was singing praise.
I won’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant food on point and reasonably priced.
See you next trip to Palmy.

I ordered a medium heat Panang Curry and without exaggeration it is the best curry I have ever had. The heat was perfect, lovely consistency and a generous portion. I feel the price was fair and accurate for the meal.
