Had walked past a few times before having a look at the menu. Were pleasantly surprised as expected the prices to be slightly higher given the setting. The service was great with iced water being poured for all at the table, and kept topped up while we chose our meals and other drinks. The quality of all 4 meals we... More

You got to look out for mosquitoes, there are a lot of it since it's near a river. Bring a mosquito repellent - you will need it. Otherwise the food is good 😊

I was in Chiang Mai to get our condo unit organized before we move to Thailand. I had signed up for the expats club breakfast which was more like a brunch buffet. Everything available and zi was delighted to have REAL carved ham for the first time in six years of living in Asia. Omellette and egg station, hash browns,... More

The restaurant is spacious and nicely decorated with some seating overlooking the river and iron bridge that provides an impressive view at night. Make sure you've applied mosquito repellent before sitting there though. The spicy papaya salad was excellent as was a stir fried beef with pepper dish with lean beef and fresh peppercorns. We also had muscles jungle style... More

No doubt, the view here is what makes this place (see photos) with some dishes really good and some so-so. We chose a table on the terrace, but beware, there are no ceiling fans here so one of us had to go back to the hotel to change into long pants and more bug spray. We ordered the salmon, their...

Loved the setting by the river. The night we went was not too crowded. We found the food to be very good. Loved the lettuce cup appetizer dish - wow. They were willing to adjust the level of spice/heat to our tastes (not lots). The fish dish was fresh and tasty. Really liked that they had some good choices for... More

I went here a few times and I love al the food that I have ordered from here. It is a good Thai restaurant which is located near the Ping River. You can enjoy the river view and a delicious food. The cocktail is good and strong. Staff is nice and speaking English.

The hotel recommended this restaurant to us. The place is charming and the food was excellent, full of flavour. We specially liked the coconut curry, it was delicious. It's bit more expensive than other restaurants but the quality of the food and the atmosphere make it really worth it.

Cost a bit more, but so worth it. Beautiful location and really wonderful food! If you like Thai food, you will have plenty of opportunities to get good street meals, but the River Market is a major step above! On the same level of bumping up your Thai experience a notch, there are a million places to get an okay... More

My wife and I had a nice relaxing lunch at this restaurant last week. The food was very good with the son in law eggs a big hit. This is nice place to sit and watch the river. This restaurant is a bit pricier than other restaurants in Chiang Mai but we feel it was worth the extra. Service was... More
