REVIEWS OF Chaba Thai Cuisine IN Maine


Only been here once so limited experience. Not great, but not bad. I'll be generous and give 4 stars simply due to the limited options in Maine. Truly 3.5 stars. Drunken noodles were good (4 stars), pineapple fried rice was just ok, but much flavor or yellow curry (3 stars).

Brittany Paradis

Amazing food, and absolutely amazing Sushi! Highly recommended

Norm Rutt

The food was excellent, the service was friendly and prompt even though they were busy and the bill was very reasonable. I recommend them highly.

James McDonough

Great Thai restaurant, with warm, friendly staff.

Laurie Boutin

I've eaten here twice now, excellent food. Staff are friendly, capable and quick! I would have given 5 stars...but the decor is outdated, worn out, mis-matched and not appealing at all.

Evan Caprari

Best Pad Kee Mao (drunken noodle) in the area!

Heather York

Waitresses very friendly. Chicken pad Thai and spring rolls were awesome.


Amazing. Absolutely Amazing. Best Thai food ever. Do not pass up eating here. You won’t regret it.

Alison Morton

My son loves the crispy chicken in peanut sauce over noodles. It was once on the specials list, and the owner is kind enough to make it for us whenever we ask for it. We can never remember the name of the other dish we most like there, but again, they always work with us to figure it out. And it is ALWAYS delicious.

Joanne DiNoto

Food was amazing

Karl Morlock

Best Thai food in the area hands down. Quality food is always tasty and orders are well taken to avoid mistakes. The owners are very nice and their staff is hard working and always a pleasure to see.

Jeff Bailey

Excellent - what a great place

eddie cook

Always awesome.the owner is a lovely friendly sweet woman.we love chaba

Julia Batchelder

The restaurant was extremely dirty and run down. Fingernail clippings on the bar, dirty dishes left out. Asked for light sauce and seemed like they put extra. The food was really good, until I found 3 or 4 black hairs in the rice. Yum!

AJ Theriault

I can't get enough of the cashew nut chicken. There may be some sort of addiction causing ingredient. You've been warned.

Catherine Bargh

Delicious food!

Cheyenne Robinson

Great service, great food.

Jed Taft

The food is consistently good and comes out fast. I have always had excellent service. It’s kind of a diamond in the ruff given its location next to a dog groomer.

Ele J

I absolutely love this place!! Vegetarian options soooo deliciously good. Wish I found it earlier!! I ordered the Spicy Eggplant with Vegetarian Duck. Exquisite!!

Tricia Kavanagh

I have now eaten here four times and each time has been a total surprise.Nadia always waits on us with a smile and suggestions. The egg rolls/spring rolls are freshly made, crispy and yummy. The Pho is unsurpassed and I will try the Chili Shrimp again with #4 heat. It is way out of my way so I have to make sure I stop on the way south from Portland. Do not miss this delight

Leonard Tan

Goof food and service. Haven't had any fried rice as good as their Indonesian Fried Rice. A must-try. Also, their Spicy Tune Tempura Roll is amazing! Their Tom Kha one of the best, plus if you order the family portion, you get a giant bowl which you can share with at least 4 people.

francis silva

Good food and great service!!!!

Nikki Silva

I used to work here. Authentic with huge portions the pad thai is enough to feed 3 people (only 12$ i think) and they have a full bar!

Joe A

The food here is good , really good. Unfortunately the evening we were there they appeared to be grossly understaffed with one man working as host, telephone order taker, server and bartender. It took quite some time to even get our drink order in. Finally one item that we ordered and we're charged for was never delivered. Normally I would have said something during the course of the meal but they only came to check on us when all the other food had been eaten.

Jacey G.

We recently moved and I was getting worried that we wouldn’t find a Thai restaurant nearby that had good food. We tried at least 5 around the Gorham/Portland area until I tried this restaurant in Scarborough. Excellent Thai food and …

Kathleen Haase

The best crab rangoons!

Edward Cleary

Great food and a different dining experience each time (they reset, rearrange the dining room so it seems always new).

Shawna Moran

Good Look!!!Want to try it..

Julie Raybine

My favorite place to get Thai food. Best Chicken Pad Thai around. Nice quiet atmosphere. Friendly service. There's never a wait. They seat you right away. Lunch specials are a great deal.

Vie Nadeau-Carney

Very professional, attentive, caring staff! Even better food, would absolutely recommend. Pad thai is to die for! Crab Rangoons made from real crab, everything was delicious!

alyson brann

Food is great. Staff knows us by name. Music is always well selected. And again, the food is GREAT!

Jane Leng

Fresh, flavorful and tasty food beautifully presented. The coconut milk soup was superb. I loved everything on my first visit. Will definitely go again.

arny knight

I like the calmari and pad Thai there, my wife loves the mango soup dish. yummy food.

Mark Imse

Always a great meal. Love coming here while on vacation

Monique Gaudet

Fast and friendly. Pad thai had wonderful flavor. Drinks were big and served with fresh fruit. Great experience.

Jesica Gagne

It wad amazing

Curtis Cedrone

Wasn't anything great, I ordered the bacon pad thai and in the description said that it came with thick chunks of bacon. When it arrived I was surprised to see that it was clearly Oscar myer precooked bacon. Very disappointing considering the last time I was there I enjoyed my meal.

Christopher Yanni

So happy to have a new local favorite. The ginger soup is amazing. We also mixed it up to try different options. The Choba Noodles were good but my wife's Sweet Sausage Pork Fried Rice was excellent. The portions were very generous. We also had several pieces of nigiri and it was as fresh as tasty as I've ever had it. We'll be back for sure!!


Beautiful location! Their food is great, the only recommendation I can make is to bring people with you and expect to share your meal. Their fresh spring rolls are a great place to start. If you like pho, you will not be disappointed. Their noodle bowls or vermicelli salads are good too


It was just alright Food was okay inside was alittle run down

Kimberly Urrutia

Omg so good!

rob coates

The fried and steamed rice were both overcooked and mushy. The Thai garlic had no garlic flavor and again the vegetables were overcooked. Not for me.

Larry Donhoffner

Tom tum soup

Junior Andrade

The people are so friendly! Great place!

Melissa Meier

First time going here and it was delicious! I had the mango curry and it was amazing! Highly recommended!

Charles Kiezulas

Shrimp with Eggplant KRA-POW. Generous portions. A full meal. Great flavour with fresh chilli, basil, onion, mushrooms and eggplant in a brown sauce. Service was well done on Sunday afternoon for family of 4. We rated a 4 because the facilities are average.

Melissa Dusoe

Absolutely wonderful! Referred a group of friends during a weekend away in OOB. They loved it as well.

Amber Chopelas

Cozy little restaurant with excellent food and great staff. My favorite restaurant in the area!

Renee Carney

Our very favorite Thai restaurant! Never disappoints!

Rhonda Woodman

A little hole in the wall but some of the best Thai food we have had. :) yum!! On my birthday on the way home from Gray, ME.

Carl Stohlberg

I love this place! I've been here quite a few times and It never get old. Not pricy and the food is always real good. Good music mix as well. Real casual atmosphere as well. Sushi is great too

Michelle Gaudette

Fabulous food and friendly staff!

Joel Kraft

The food here is so good. My favorite is the Crispy Pad Thai. The coconut soup is so tasty. Tonight my wife had Pumpkin Curry Scallops. The sauce was amazing.

Brian m

Outstanding thai food. Maybe one of the best Thai restaurants I have been to. Mixed drinks (Pink Wink & Zombie) were very good and well balanced. Meals had the perfect amount of spice and very flavorful. Atmosphere was very cozy immersive. If you want a break from the traditional seafood, or if you want a great meal, I would visit. I will definitely be back.

Christine Mayo

So so Thai. Quick, cheap, fast.

Hank Bee

The food and service was outstanding and the cuisine was true to form!

Christopher Clinton

I have been to many Thai restaurants around the country and it is hard to find a good one. This one was wonderful. Amazing soup!

Mary-Jane Blanchard

A must try

Briant Gaudet

K. Nakanishi

This was the first place I ever tried Thai food, and it is also a place I will never forget. Delicious!


Best Thai food in Maine

Thomas Kusch

Delicious and authentic Thai food served in a family-run restaurant with cozy atmosphere. The service is fast and friendly, the prices are very reasonable, and the portion sizes are great. Definitely a must go if in the area!

Jeff Anthony

The main dishes were excellent. Parking and seating was comfortable. Slightly expensive for the non romantic atmosphere.

Bryan Martins

Overall this place was enjoyable. We ordered a couple of their specialty cocktails that were tasty and poured fairly strong. The sushi was fresh tasting and had a decent selection of rolls to choose from. The service was very good as the staff was very friendly and offered many suggestions. The main negative is that the ambiance of the place is a bit odd. It's dated and not the nicest inside the restaurant. The music selection did not match and the place was littered with knick knacks that made the walls feel cluttered. That is a minor negative as the food was good and the staff was very friendly. Will definitely return

saturn scape

Just ate there for the first time, and compared to slightly more expensive thai food in Portland, this blows it away. Everything was great, the waiter was really nice and the prices were great.

priscilla coreau

Expired gift card was not acceptable but it was my fault I will never buy there again though

Steve Blais

My wifes friend bit down on a small rock the size of a blueberry in her chicken pad thai. They tried to convince her it was a piece of noodle or an egg. When she brought it back they gave her a new order but said it was a chicken bone. We've never seen chicken bone with quartz in it....just saying. How a rock gets into the pad thai, I don't know. Maybe it was dropped on the floor and picked back up???

Samuel Casey

Really good drunken noodles, and good crispy pad thai just could have used a little more sauce. If in the south Portland area try ruby Thailand

Mandi Cote

Amazing Pad Thai.

Jeffrey Heisel

Basic Thai joint with some very tasty in house specials such as the marinated pork and bacon pad thai. Service is prompt and portions large.

Monica W

The food is delicious, nice and quiet place to eat, good service.

Patrick Pilvines

Don't let the outside fool you. Great food within! We've mainly done take out from here and the food is always quickly brought out and is delicious. The sushi is fresh and had a good selection of choices. Thai food is great and some interesting items come up on the specials so dont forget to check them out when you get in!

Ian Mather

Always good

Mike Hasenstaub

Never had a bad meal here. Always very fresh. Becoming one off my favorite sushi spots. Great people. Great place.

Sarah Ouellette

Not a fan of this Thai food, No flavor

Johnny Phay

My fave place

richard foran

I don't get to eat a lot of Thai food, but when I do Chaba Thai Cuisine is usually the place I go. The last time I was there the table behind us had a couple say "This is the most authentic Thai food I've had in Maine".

Shea Murphy

An adorable little place just enough out of the way with a delightfully intimate atmosphere and a whole assortment of creative, tasty dishes on their rotating menu!

Alicia Vitello

We stumbled upon this place by accident. Food was so yummy. Atmosphere needs a facelift though. Full bar available.

Amy Doyon

Very clean. Waitress was kind. Food was ok. Could have used a little more flavor. Portion was small for the price.

Lauren Rantuccio

Wonderful food at a great price. Atmosphere is chic. Very friendly server. The scorpion bowl is dangerous! So delicious!!

Rajiv Garg

Excellent good. Got take out for lunch and the food was great. Pad thai and drunken noodles are the best. Excellent dumplings and chicken satay. I would highly recommend this place.

John Marescot

Staff was nice, just food wasn't over the top..

Wesley Chalmers

Great food.

Tim Leber

The place all other Thai food is judged against... this place wins 99.9% of the time

Paul Carney

Excellent food and service. This is Thai food (and Sushi) worth making a road trip to get. We are glad to have found this little gem!

Eric Berns

I wish I could give 3 1/2 stars because that's what my curry was to me tonight.. it was a little wattery with not enough vegetables or flavor for my taste. I asked for 4 stars of spice out of 5 total but got about a 2 star spicy level. Nice kid working there at the front desk. I'll have to try something new next time.

k margaret leaff

best local thai but i prefer to go to portland

Shannon Gorham

Very good!

Susan Coppola

Excellent food. Will be back soon!

Suryatej Potula

Loved the curry fried rice.

Amy Crawford

Always greeted by a friendly person in the lobby. Usually offered a drink while I wait for my take out order. Good portion sizes of Fried Rice and Pad Thai and reasonably priced. Allow modifications and are attentive to special requests, such as "light on the peanuts" and "1 star" for spice level. Fresh spring rolls are delicious.


Always friendly staff, great food, good value. Lunchtime service is quick, call in if you're taking out for lunch for the fastest turn around.

James Mitchell

This place will be the death of a good way. I cant stop coming back! Been here multiple times everything ive gotten is delicious drinks are sturdy and your moneys worth recommend the A12 app and the orange chicken that's the bomb. Go here its the best place around.

Robin Roberge

First timers. It was pretty good. Love the noodles on tables

Bob Mclaughlin

Good food

James Cornwall

Love this place, I order the exact same thing every time.....sooo good. Very pleasant service as well.

Kyle Spencer

I've seen negative and positive reviews on here, but I will say this much, Chaba Thai is the best in southern Maine! I have had thai from all over and I keep coming back to Chaba, which is great because they're close to my home! I recommend you try them. Small place with friendly people and great food!

S Resko

Always satisfying! Crispy chicken drunken noodles are top notch! Good cocktails, fairly priced.

Zach Taylor

Friendly staff, cute little restaurant. Has a bar and also offers sushi. Can be a bit pricy, but it's always worth it.

Michael Chipman

Went there for lunch, had a good experience. Only two small down points were the sushi rice was too cooked and the pork was not as flavorful and juicy as I expected. The flavors were excellent and the soups were wonderful.

beth hemenway

Yummy crispy pad Thai!

Vincent Fondren

Excellent lunch, good pricing

Stephen Verge

Have been there several times food is awesome and the beef pho is out of this world. Prices are reasonable service is great Nadia the waitress is great and will help you with the meal and what the flavors will be like love this place
