Chada Thai is a Thai restaurant in downtown Chico that will likely not disappoint those seeking the pleasurable endorphin rush of spicy food. Their scale is from 1 to 4, and 4 is "Thai spicy" — making a cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Thai Tea completely necessary in order to finish a plate. They offer a vegetarian menu as well. Try the Tom Kah soup and the peanut sauce. You will not be disappointed!

Here is their to-go menu as of March 3, 2010:


2008-07-18 08:36:28   Great food with a decent sized vegetarian menu. Service is kind of crappy, and they are often rude, but man is that tom kah soup good. —

2008-08-26 21:13:41   Food is quite good, but the service is surly. —StellaChiara

2008-09-22 22:51:28   Family business, only 1 waitress for about 20 tables. Recommend the Curry Duck. —

2009-01-05 16:15:58   My favorite restaurant in town. We love the grilled seafood #58 with the green papaya salad #10. You won't be disappointed —

2009-06-20 10:45:53   Great food. could improve service though. —

2009-09-15 17:39:06   I ate Chada for the first time at the Taste of Chico, and I really wanted to order some take out, but they have no online menu. I hate when places don't have online menus, they lost my business because of it. —

  • Perhaps a nice Chicoan will one day take digital photos or a scan of their menu and post it here :-) The Chico Wiki is the perfect place for menus. Good luck. —RyanMikulovsky

2009-12-11 21:26:05   Best visited during less busy times, as it is cramped. We were the only ones in at 5:20 on a Friday. Service was minimal; our water glasses remained empty after we drank them. Tasty Thai, but maybe that was the MSG. I called after leaving to ask, and yes, some salads and entrees have MSG unless you ask that it be omitted. At least they were honest about it. —
