We are hard to please. After having lived in Northern Thailand for seven years, we have a taste for Thai food. Chanchai delivered. Service was pleasant. Atmosphere was okay (although it was a bit hard to notice due to a very large reservation coming in for dinner). Food was delivered in reasonable time. We had three different curries. The flavours and textures were accurate. I asked for extra spice for mine and was accommodated to a reasonable degree. My wife had the talapia chuchee talai. She was happy. My daughter had the red curry. She said it was okay but could have been spicier. I had the Penang Gai curry. The flavour and consistency was bang on. Even had the authentic caffir lime leaves. Price was competitive. My only suggestion is to have the authentic Thai sauces (Red Pepper sauce or Sriracha, the fish sauce with chillies and the vinegar with chillies) on the table. Too bad they didn't have som tam! That would have been the icing on the cake... Light Thai music on the sound system gave some authenticity.
Listen, life is too short to waste on bad restaurants. But we will definitely come back to Chanchai. We still need to try the noodles and tom yum.
