I am not one to usually detour from my normal routine menu but I decided, after hearing many rave reviews from friends about this place, to take my girlfriend here for a Valentine's Day dinner. My girlfriend had been a couple times before with her friends so I knew she would enjoy the meal. This was my first taste of... More

Being such a Thai food fanatic and reading the good reviews of Chalit's, it was a must to check her out. The place was very slow, I think there was one other couple there, as I noticed the sophisticated layout with beautiful low colors of black and tan. Subdued lighting, clean tables and chairs, the experience was starting off grand.... More

You seriously cannot go wrong here. Don't let the facade (strip mall) fool you. I am personally a big fan of the Buddha dumplings. And it's a BYOB rstablishment.

Visited Chalits on 2/9 with a friend. I have been there several times in the past and really enjoy their specialty brown rice. But this time I ordered the Fresh Ginger and Mushroom stir fry with fried tofu, along with their brown rice. The dish was served in a bowl, with rice on the side. This was one of the... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants to meet for dinner but this time i was a little disappointed with my meal. I always get the Chicken Drunken Noodles but this time it was sparse on the noodles. I sure had a lot more veggies but missed the noodles. Flavor was still yummy. You can get this plate in degrees... More

Went for lunch with friends. Had the catfish cha cha. Heat is 1- 4 American hot and 5-10 Thai hot. I asked for the American 4 and it was HOT and really good. Glad I didn't ask for the Thai hot. Had the Thai ice tea with cream - very goood. Prices reasonable. Service very good.

Excellent Thai food, especially the homemade brown rice. The food is fresh and flavorful with a variety of meat, seafood and vegetarian options.

I met a lady friend for lunch at Chalit's Thai Bistro on MLK day around 1 pm; I arrived first and the hostess led me to a small table near the door but it was quite drafty, so I requested one away from the door. She led me over to one close to the "restroom" sign and kitchen. I asked... More

I really like Chalit's - it's the most authentic Thai food you can get in the area and I love dining in there - but I have noticed on a number of occasions that the takeout portions are significantly smaller than the dine in portions but for the same price. I'm not a big eater nor looking for a giant... More
