Habathai,JohnsCreek - Atlanta, GA Thai Restaurant review
From the multitude of Thai-style restaurants there are in the Atlanta area, it can be hard to narrow it down to which one to go to. My word of advice would be to try Chabathai: easily my best Thai dining experience in the Atlanta area. Not only is their staff friendly and very helpful if you’re not well-versed in the Thai cuisine, but their food is to die for. With a wide range of styles ranging from mild to extremely spicy, there is something for everyone at Chabathai.
Although Chabathai does not have a website, you can find out some more information by visiting these links. Its hours are Monday through Friday from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM, Saturday from noon to 10:00 PM, and Sunday from noon to 9:00 pm. It is located at the intersection of Medlock Bridge Road and State Bridge Road, just past Medlock Crossings, in the shopping center with the movie theatre. As it is a smaller restaurant, a reservation is recommended, although you can dine without one.

For the main dish, I got the yellow curry, served mild. All of the curry at Chabathai is served either mild, hot, or very spicy, and the waiters are more than willing to help you pick what kind of curry you would like and what level of spice you would enjoy. They are very knowledgeable about their food and they are a great help to first time Thai diners, or if you were looking to try something new.
Their yellow curry was slightly sweet and mellow, like classic yellow curry is, however what I really enjoyed was that each flavor that was in the curry stood out: it wasn’t a mumble-jumble of a bunch of different flavors, it was more a conglomeration of every flavor working in unison to create an amazing curry-experience while you tasted it. You could really taste the chicken, the coconut, the green peppers, and every other ingredient. Served with endless amounts of steamed rice, it was not only a very filling dish, but a very surprisingly good dish as well.
Chabathai’s other dishes include tempura fried catfish, red snapper, Shu-Shi jumbo shrimp, sea scallops, all types of curry, duck, and many seafood choices. There are also low-calorie and vegetarian choices on their menu. However, as stated earlier, the restaurant’s signature dish is the traditional Panang Curry dish made with creamy coconut milk.
Chabathai is one of many Thai restaurants in the John’s Creek area, as well as in the northern suburbs of Atlanta. It clearly surpasses all others however, not only in their food, but in their amazing service as well. It is great for dates or office dinners, as well as family outings. An inexpensive way to get a lot of quality food, Chabathai is a great all-around Thai dining experience.
