Everything at Chalit's is wonderful. This is a great little restaurant that is also a BYOB. Try the drunken noodles!

We've eaten at Chalit's Thai Bistro several times, and have liked it each time. The menu has a large selection of entries; more than your typical Thai restaurant. My last meal there, I had a Hot and Spicy Wok dish with roasted cashews and chilies (along with my choice of meat - chicken). For any dish that is spicy, they... More

No matter what time of day....no matter what you order...you cannot go wrong here. We love the Buddha Dumplings for an appetizer. Entrees...the Pad Thai....the Roasted Cashews w/Chiles (with Chicken)...the Chalit's Fried Rice....you truly cannot go wrong. My son has cashew/sesame oil allergies, and they have been more than able to work around them! We return here at least once... More

Chalits has a great menu. The owner is the chef and everything comes out hot and perfectly spiced to your desired level. If you can save room, their tiramisu is the best I have ever had-areal surprise for a Thai restaurant. Their service is very good and bring your own wine and beer.

This wasn't the typical hole in the wall Thai restaurant that we're use to, but it was still delicious! The decor is modern, the service was great, and the food was delicious - they even had some unique specials in addition to the typical curries/thai noodle dishes. We will definitely be going back and wish this place was closer to... More

We went for lunch based on the great reviews on TA. I had the tom kha soup with chicken. The chicken just didn't taste like it was high quality-would not order that again Tofu triangles were good but not amazing. My red panang curry was better. The chicken tasted fresher but there were too many peas (which weren't even mentioned... More

This is the best Thai food in town. Great ambience and service Food is pricey. Disappointing to see shrinking food portions with time.

Amazing. It's the only word I can use to describe the service and the quality of food in this restaurant. I made the mistake of mentioning to the waiter (Jeff - demand that he be your server) that my wife hails from Chiang Mai and I was met with possibly some of the most well balanced spiced and seasoned Thai...

I had the stir fry with scallops and brown rice, shitake and asparagus. Very tasty wished I had got a bit more rice. Wife got drunken noodles with a 5 reading for spicy, not hot at all but very good as well a Thai iced tea came to $28 plus tax. Server was perfect!
