Beautiful and inviting at night, Whole Earth was recommended by our hotel staff. Easy access if you are at the nightly market. The food was just okay, not great.

It has a large ground space with many outdoor features and prominent deck with bar and seating on the front of the property. Set toward the... More

The food here was unreal. We loved that you have to take off your shoes to enter and the setting/ decor was beautiful. Best panang red curry I've ever had. Great service and a lovely experience. Very romantic too- would 100% visit again

As above delicious and beautifully cooked, I also had TomYum soup, i asked for medium spicy and it was still a little too hot even though I quite like hot food, this was also delicious.

It's best to make a reservation at this restaurant as it can get quite busy, especially during school holidays or weekends. I enjoyed the variety of Thai and Indian dishes, and appreciated the amount of vegetarian options. Being a vegan, it can get tricky finding a place that doesn't use any animal products such as chicken stock or butter in... More

I have a sentimental attachment to this restaurant, having been one of the few in Chiang Mai 25 years ago that offered vegetarian options. The restaurant is inside a Thai wooden house. If the weather is fine, sitting outside on the veranda in the evening is particularly enjoyable. The night my family and I visited recently we had a wonderful... More

The restaurant is very well designed in a beautiful garden. At night I'm sure it's even better with the lights. The service was OK but a bit cold. Nothing wrong, just not very friendly. There's Thai or Indian food. We only tried the Thai food but it was mediocre as well. Maybe the Indian is better.

Close from the night market area, some 400meters, the decor is very nice. Food is very well done but limited on the meat side (no beef or pork)

The first thing you will notice is the ambience. This restaurant is gorgeous. There is an outdoor bar that rests just beyond the main dining quarters while chic, petite tables and chairs line the outside of the floor to ceiling glass windows and walls of the picturesque villa. You'll want to take pictures, certainly. Unfortunately, our food didn't quite match... More

We only had lunch there, so we didn't get the evening atmosphere with the lights and music. We did get though, a peaceful tasty lunch. Food was superb. They even asked how spicy we want our curry. Service was also very good. Prices were higher than normal. Located right on the border of night bazar . Worth a visit.

Thank racheli72
