Directly translated Chai-Yo means "cheers" and is a relaxed indoor version of a Thai street cafe. Chai-Yo is informal, friendly, realxed and fun.
I have been visiting Chai Yo for over 6 years now on every birthday and anniversary I have with my husband. It helps that its walking distance from my house but the reason we keep returning is simply because this is the best Thai food I have ever tasted.
We recently returned from a two month trip to Thailand and my husband and I were comparing the 'real deal' delicacies with what we have at Chai Yo. The Food is out of this world and better than what we found in most Thai restaurants! Angry duck, spinach rolls with a combination of amazing fresh flavours and the sweetcorn fritters are out of this world.
I will continue to visit this restaurant for special occasions and recommend it to everyone. We would have got married here if my mother-in-law would have let it!
I was a bit disappointed with my meal for the price I paid. We went on a Thursday night and there were only two other tables occupied, so not much atmosphere.
I love Chai Yo. I grew up in Mowbray so it was always a treat. Good Thai Food, especially their Green Curry and Duck in Red Wine Sauce. Duck Spring Rolls are also very tasty. Usually get take away but atmosphere is lovely for a sit-down too.
Sitting at my table on this public holiday. Brought someone special to this restaurant as we had a great time previously. Tonight was shocking! Poor understaffed restaurant with owner who do not want to pay overtime. But I have to pay full price for service and food that was never there.. Please help!!!
This place is always busy. You have to try the angry duck. Crisp and tasty. Don't forget about the dedicated smoking section upstairs.
