Had a meal here just before Xmas and found the food to be really nice - went for the banquet and it was delicious.

Mussels to start and chicken satay were both lovely. The main courses were slightly too watery however they were still nice with the extra chillies that I asked for. Drinks were reasonable too with quick service, thanks!

Situated in the lovely historic market place of Bishop Auckland this restaurant offers the most delicious Thai food in the area I'm sure. We love it and the friendly and attentive service make it a place we go back to time and again. No hesitation in recommending the Chang Thai for a night out or lunch too.

Authentic Thai food! Was in town for a business trip and had a meal there with couple of colleagues and we loved it. We had the curry and tom yum soup... Only down side is that parking is hard to find and there is no Thai dessert

I don't eat Eastern food, so can only comment on the recently-opened cafe downstairs, which is very good indeed - fine tea, delicious sliced cake (made mostly in-house), good scones and attentive and intelligent service. This is a place where they offer the customer things to taste (like they sometimes do in continental cafes) because they're proud of what they... More

What a great restaurant in a lovely old building. Great food with lovely staff. I had Thai fish cakes which was a small dish but did taste amazing. The red Thai curry was amazing with a great depth of flavour with a really generous portion of rice. Well worth a visit for either a meal with friends or an important... More

Very pleased with the Thai food on offer here. Although slightly over-priced (hence the 4* rating), the customer service and presentation of Chang Thai is almost impeccable. I feel if more people were aware of this family-run restaurant, it'd be able to develop and keep up with it's ever evolving town centre and geological surroundings. I'd definitely urge anybody who...

It can look closed if the cafes downstairs are closed but is a differently-managed facility on the first floor so don't be put off. We found the service efficient and accommodating and the food was fresh, interesting and good quality, with ordering by numbers. Suggest you choose something which has the ingredients clearly marked unless you have had it before... More
