One of the best Thai restaurants we've eaten. Consistently good prep with fresh food and great service. A bit pricey, but delicious. BYOB. Busy and reservations suggested.

Located in a strip mall, you wouldn't expect much. However, this well exceeded my expectations. You can adjust the spiciness to your liking on a scale of 1 to 10.

Once a week our company orders lunches to go from Chalit's. Although it does take a little longer to prepare, it is completely worth the wait! The presentation is well done in the to go container and the food is always delicious!

I am a vegetarian. The menu is full of consistently fresh well seasoned veggies. My favorite of all is papaya salad sans shrimp. Enough to share.
