We wandered around the Trafford Park looking for food and came across this restaurant. We like Thai so thought why not try it as it seemed a decent price. It’s £14.99 for weekend eat as much as you like buffet. The food was average with...More

Place is a bit dirty and can get overcrowded. The food availability of choice is poor for the cost and certainly the quality is questionable. Only great if you like copious amounts of tasteless food and you get off on how much of this crap...More

The soup here is the best soup I have ever had. They make it in front of you to order. Add as much chilli as you want!! Absolute heaven. All the main dishes are brilliant, but I can't help just going back for that soup...More

Nice place, attentive staff, quick turn around on the food. This is not going to beat going to an actual restaurant but it's the best Thai buffet experience I have had. I would recommend having a noodle soup as it's freshly prepared while you wait....More

Happened to just go as passing by with wife and young son. Food was ok. As a buffet it was very similar to chinese so know surprise on cuisine. Very friendly staff and great with kids. Thanks.

Buffet style so if you are in a rush you can be in and out rapidly. Not a huge selection but good enough and the staff were friendly. If you are a regular the loyalty scheme makes it even better value

This was our first time visiting ChaoBaby but I really hope it won’t be the last. We were very impressed with the quality of the food especially for the price (£14.95 on a Saturday). I was particularly impressed with how hot (temperature not spice level)...More
