Thai cuisine is a delicate balancing act, with only the best chefs able to keep all the plates spinning at the same time. Naturally, you’d rather your food come on a static plate – though anything to avoid the suddenly ubiquitous steak-on-a-chopping-board nonsense is appreciated – and we speak, of course, metaphorically, but the image is important. Equilibrium between sweet and sour and salt and spice is vital, and at Chalita’s Kitchen, they have it sussed. Find them on Keilor Road in Niddrie, doling out bowls of Tom Kha Soup, stir-fries of fresh seafood and veggies, pad thai and chicken to the hungry Melbourne public. They’re right off the Calder Freeway, close to Essendon airport, so you can get there easy enough – there really is no excuse not to book a table now and head on over for a proper Thai feed.
We were six having dinner on a wet and quiet night.the warmth of calitha kitchen and the nice ambient atmosphere made us feel at home. The food was fresh and tasty with plenty of vegetables and meat. The staff provided friendly service
I had pad thai with beef. The beef was tough & hard to chew & it did not have any taste. I requested a different dish with chicken and it was fine
