Welcome to Chow Thai Cafe — Charlestown’s favorite Thai cuisine restaurant – Now serving some Vietnamese specialties as well!  We serve beer and wine as well as some more creative drinks.  Vegans and vegetarians have found a hospitable and cooperative kitchen here.  Kids, neighbors and visitors from all over the world have found a very welcoming family atmosphere – we try our best to make everyone as pleased as they can be with their selections and service.

Groups and parties are welcome – special arrangements can be made – and special pricing on banquet-style dining is available for parties of eight or more.

Lunch can be fast, just be sure to let us know you would like it ASAP! We have lunch specials every day, and a special Combo deal for diners eating in the restaurant, which includes soup of the day, pad thai or lo mein noodle (or white or brown rice), and a pre-set appetizer mini-platter – all for just $1.50 more than the regular cost of the lunch specials!
