Don't waste your time. There are so many places in the area where there is good food and decent customer service. The food is fine, but when you're treated very disrespectfully, that can only go so far.
A warm, attractive alternative to Williamsburg's clubbier Thai places. – The Scene
This small, low-lit corner restaurant is invitingly crafted, beginning with a pond by the window and continuing with lilac cushions, dark wood grille-work and mottled ceramic dishes. The organic details encourage a relaxed mood among the understated local crowd, and suit the confident cooking. Service is on the ball.
Dishes are steamed, sauteed and fried to a vibrant peak. Thai crab cakes are plump and meaty, brightened with lemongrass mayo; crisp corn fritters boast juicy kernels; and the pad see iew's broad noodles tossed with egg and broccoli are sweet, firm and refreshing. The house's whole fried red snapper holds a bold topping of mint, cilantro, scallion and red onion. Along with Thai, the kitchen does a nice turn with Vietnamese recipes, including a tender, spicy beef with bamboo shoots, and a strong Vietnamese coffee, sweetened with condensed milk.
A nice alternative to Sea and Planet.. – ..what's their hipster gimmick? Square plates!! Our first visit here. I was with 3 friends, one a vegeterian. All 4 dishes were good, service was fine. So many Thai places in Williamsburg now...I hope Thai doesn't go out of style because it is my favorite cuisine.
So how does Chai stack up? Considering price, portion, and taste, it's right there with Planet Thai. Doesn't have the "Queer Eye" soundtrack booming at 85 decibels like Sea, and that's a good thing. Wait staff is friendly and quick. Not many people in the place. A nice little place to eat, not too many gimmicks......except for the plates. What is it with these trendy Thai places and: huge stoneware or oddly shaped stoneware?
Great place! – Chai is great - good value for money, and great food.. cosier than Sea
Nice little place, no wait. – A very cozy place for thai, almost like a mini Sea without the wait or the hipsters. The prices are great and dinner was well liked by all. I hope they manage to stay in business -- they are surrounded by mega-restaurants.
