Chariya's Thai Kitchen


Thai halo-halo, with coconut milk, those wormy things, and jackfruit.

If you ever find yourself wandering along Nicanor Garcia St. (more commonly known by its former name, Reposo), walk down a bit further than the galleries. Cross over Kalayaan St., and you'll stumble upon a small restaurant that will satisfy your tri-color curry cravings.


Red chicken curry with very little veggies in it.

Chariya's just opened last August 31st and is probably looking to replicate the buzz generated a few years ago by Som's Noodle House, a then-great Thai-on-the-cheap "secret" of Makati. While the food is definitely not the best Thai out there, it's reasonably tasty and a good departure from grilleries and Italian restaurants in the less central areas of Makati. I wonder if this was the same Chariya's from 168 Shopping Mall?


Long live King Bhumibol, past tense of Bhumibibol.

The place is clean, with very pale yellow walls adorned by pictures of beloved Thai king. The servers, of course, wear yellow. The tables are, thankfully, not (entirely) yellow, but made of tile with patterns on them. Live sweet basil plants sit on the end of each, and we munched on their leaves. Remember that you must leave 80% of any plant intact, so don't get carried away.


Patterns on the table.


The selection of "Simply Delicious Thai's Foods".

The menu is nothing different, with regular things like red-green-yellow curry, spring rolls, the coconut-milk-based desserts, and salads.
