“This handsome, multi-level eatery brings a taste of Thaito Manayunk. The food is on the mild side, but the fabric draped two story space is a serene haven for a spot of pad Thai.”

Craig Laban (Philadelphia Inquirer food critic)

“...a colorful Main Street bistro offers mild Thai in a gentle setting. The scene, which could easily seem forced or girlish actually feel hip and --- forgive me, nurturing.”

Philadelphia Weekly

...a compact BYOB with artful flourishes... you can sit outside and enjoy a heaping portion of pad Thai noodles or pad Krapao, a spicy meat and vegetable stir-fry with prlenty of anise-scented Thai basil”

Philadelphia Magazine

“...a Thai ”keeper” of a BYO marketing “exceptional” cuisine to admirers in “chic”, “comforting” environs on two floors”

Zagat Survey

“Chabaa’s pad Thai is on of the best versions of the noodle dish I’ve tasted.”
