A little touristy, but worth the effort if you have a night to kill. Food is varied and fun to watch a cultural experience and be in the beautiful outdoor setting. It's not expensive and well worth it for friends and family.

We ordered a vegetarian menu and everything was delicious,if a bowl was empty it was quickly refilled. We arrived early for our floor seating I think it allowed us more time with our servers as well as quick service. Loved the Khantoke style of dining a great experience The show is lovely walking you through an array of different dances... More

I was very excited to attend the Hill Tribe Show and was not disappointed! My friend and I had a wonderful time sitting on the floor, eating the Khantoke style food, and watching the dancers and musicians. They were all very talented and this show is something that should be included on your itinerary in Chiang Mai!

If this is your first time in Thailand, the traditional kantoke dinner and Thai cultural show is ok. I took visiting friends to see it because we needed something to do one night; they enjoyed it but were happy when it was over, as was I. If you can, sit on the floor, you will get a better view of... More

Very good place to go for cultural experience for local northern Thai food and a overall cultural dances from various tribes of northern Thailand. Foods are more than adequate with refills if you need more. Drinks and photo taken with traditionally dressed village girls were reasonably priced and hotel pick up and drop off are worth the price paid for...

There is dance floor in the middle. Seating in on the grounnd around it. Behind that are tables. Everybody is presented the same food. The food is ok. Service is quick but I wouldn't expect anything else if everybody gets the same. Also because of the number of staff. The dances differ in quality. Sound system is good. Some if... More
