Amazing night at Chon Thai. The atmosphere, food and staff are simply wonderful
Air (chef & owner) and her team are amazing. Chon Thai is unique and the cuisine is spectacular. Always a great night either as a couple or with friends and family
Brilliant, fresh, tasty, well priced food. Highly recommended. Thank you.
Great place. Lovely staff. Service could not have been better.
First time at Chon Thai the staff were very attentive. Food was presented loved the smoked trout in betel leaves, rest of our meal was delicious. Would definitely go back to Chon Thai.
The food at Chon is the high point of this establishment. There were several things that contributed to making the overall experience disappointing. We brought 2 bottles of wine, a rose, since restaurants rarely have good ones on their list and a red. We were charged $4.50 corkage each person for each bottle for a total of $9.00 corkage per person. Not every person drank the red but we were still charged. I would expect if you are charged $9 each that we would at least have the wine served for us, but no. Turns out the $9.00 was a glass rental fee (kidding but?). We’re used to paying corkage but frankly this was an excessive charge for no apparent service. Noise was also an issue so discussing the charge with staff was useless. We decided that the corkage charge would suffice as the tip and left it at that. It spoilt the overall experience.
Chon Thai in Balmain deliver exceptional customer service accompanied by exquisite cuisine. Air and her team have found that special something with unique, exciting and delicious dishes that will have your tastebuds dancing for more
The food was fantastic. The servings were plentiful and the quality and presentation was excellent. The wine list was good and the prices were not excessive. The only thing that was disappointing was the initial service. We had to ask someone to take our order as I think they had forgotten about us but once this happened the service did improve.
Food was reasonable but hated being seated next to a table of 1 parent & 2 very young children. We asked to move to another table for 2 further away (the restaurant was quite empty as it was only 6.30pm) but were told that table was reserved - it was still empty when we finished our meal an hour & 15 minutes later & left. Not what I call good service. We won't be coming back.
Great atmosphere. Not too noisy but great vibe. Then there’s the food. It was amazing. Not the average Aussie Thai that has got the cuisine a bad name. The food has a wonderful depth of flavour and the balance of flavours, plus it’s innovative.
