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!
Speedy service and very tasty. Best Laksa I’ve had in ages. Very good stir fry dishes. Good variety of wines. Good list of specials. Decor very nice
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.
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.
