Delicious and authentic Thai dishes served at a relatively tourist-friendly setting - there's a full on traditional Thai menu but also a small number of Western dishes available if you've been too "spiced up" during the holiday. We ordered the lemon chilli steamed fish and...More

Beautiful timber building with friendly efficient service. The grilled pork was delicious but green chicken curry in naan (or similar) was a bit strange. The curry part was good though. Great place for a relaxing drink. Beautiful seeing all the lights across the river.

The River market is centrally located on the River Ping and overlooking the Iron Bridge. The Thai-Burmese Colonial inspired building was built with 95% recycled wood and using old traditional construction techniques. The high ceiling adds light and the roof structure was designed for the air to circulate and keep the building cool even on the hottest days. The modern Thai kitchens showcase the food and the talented chefs that prepare it. Everything is cooked fresh using the best ingredients available. To make it a prefect meal we offer a selection of great wines, beers and cocktails chosen to compliment our food. The River Market Restaurant started with the idea of serving great Thai food at reasonable prices using quality ingredients and as a destination for friends and families to get together and share. The portions at The River Market are substantial and the dining area and the tables are comfortably spread out for patrons to stretch out and enjoy. Prices are reasonable.
