Canberra may have its fair share of Thai restaurants, but Thai Chiang Rai is a name that stands out from the rest. With two restaurants in the city – a testament to their popularity – Thai Chiang Rai is all about authenticity, serving up dishes crafted using time-honoured recipes and cooking techniques. Begin with some coconut prawns, chicken satay or curry puffs before trying a traditional Thai curry, a bowl of tom yum goong soup, or something more adventurous like the duck paa-lo (slow-cooked duck legs with figs and Thai spices served with steamed asparagus). You’ll find Thai Chiang Rai’s Belconnen branch located on Emu Bank – guarantee a table at this local hotspot by making a reservation in advance!
Made booking for 4 people at 6.30 pm. Ordered the coconut prawn and sate chicken entrees and three stir-fry mains with duck, pork & mixed seafood plus rice. All the dishes were delicious and contained fresh ingredients. Service was friendly and appropriately timed. This is my favourite Canberra restaurant
This was my first experience of boôking on line, the process was very straightforward and obviously worked as the restaurant had our boôking recorded when we arrived at the appointed time.
Super easy to book my reservations and worked perfectly when i arrived the table was ready. I would definitely use this service again as i can book anytime i think of it and not just when a restaurant is open!
We had a lovely family evening at Thai Chiang Rai for a special celebration last night. The dinner was delicious, the service very good and the views across Lake Ginninderra, very pretty. Thai Chiang Rai is one of our favourite restaurants as the food is always excellent, with lots of choice on the menu.
We had an enjoyable evening and the food was excellent, We requested a delay between the entre and the mains which they adhered too. The atmosphere was relaxing and not rushed, overall I can highly recommend this restaurant.
The restaurant is in a lovely setting by the lake and the food and service are excellent. Three of us dined and all had a very positive experience.
Food was excellent but could have been a little more spicy. There was a good gap between courses which I was pleased with. Overall a good night out.
Pleasant venue, good service, competent and pleasant staff, very good food. I would rate it 6 but no one is perfect therefore 5 out of 6.
Quick service good portions and good food. Great environment for family and friends. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, will be back soon for sure.
Friendly service, a bit slow. Good food at a reasonable price. Pleasant location near lake. Spacious area, quiet and calm ambiance, easy to conduct a conversation within a group.
