Very bland for Thai food. Minimal menu options. Service adequate. The restaurant has moved to a new location since we visited.

Food is always terrific and the Pad Thai shrimp and wonton soup are my favorites. Not a bad meal on 3 years. The new location is good and the access is easier.

Everything tastes so fresh with lots of flavor. The appetizers are all great, especially Buddha Dumplings and Kung Gra Bog. My favorite entrées are Yellow Curry with shrimp, love any of the stir fry's, and Roasted Cashews and Chilies. I've been going to Chalit's since...More
