Rate-A-Restaurant #293: Chadaka Thai

Chadaka Thai

Restaurant: Chadaka Thai

Location: 310 N San Fernando Blvd. (Burbank)

Type of restaurant: Thai

Chadaka Thai

We stipulated: We were meeting friends in Burbank and looking for a place to meet. Thai sounded good.

They stipulated: Happy Hour deals include $3 beers, $5 cocktails and $5 appetizers

Chadaka Thai

What we ordered: Grilled Calamari (Grilled calamari over charcoal served with spicy lime garlic chili dipping sauce); Basil Eggplant (Sauteed with onions in chili black bean); Pad See Ew Noodles (Flat rice noodles, wok sauteed with broccoli and Asian broccoli in a black bean soy sauce)

Chadaka Thai

High point: The calamari was decent and the happy hour prices are great.

Low point: There were flies buzzing around the restaurant, distracting us from the food. The entrees lacked any heat -- even the chili sauce was surprisingly mild. We had to ask for the tofu to be cooked regularly in the eggplant dish. And even rice was extra.

Chadaka Thai

Overall impression: Missed opportunity. Nice location and trendy atmosphere, but mediocre food.

Chance we'll go back: In a town crawling with good Thai restaurants, Chadaka Thai doesn't make the grade.

The last time I ate there, the food was pretty good, but that was several years ago. Seemed very pricey at the time, too...

I'd like to suggest a 'white balance' tutorial before your next food photography session! The green tint to everything is rather unsettling!

Gindi Thia is where it's at in Burbank--and they have sushi too!
