The Khao Soi with spare ribs was on point! I do not recommend ordering cocktails here as they are pretty skimpy on the alcohol. This is a cheap place to eat if you are comparing it to American prices. However, it is one of the more expensive places to eat in Chiang Mai. For three dinner plates, one gin and... More

Great upscale local Thai food; From the curry soup to the spicy bacon salad and the squid, everything was so fresh and delicious. Make sure you order the shaved coconut for dessert!

I had the best dinner in Chiang mai at Cafe de Nimman. The Tom Yung was simply amazing. The sweet, sour, spicy tastes are perfectly balanced. The lemon fish was really soft, smooth, and tasty with the refreshing sauce. The portion is huge, so couldn't really try many dishes. Will definitely come again if I am in Chiang mai.

Food is great! Value is assured! Staff are friendly and efficient, just be cool when speaking English, they will get it, they repeat your order, easy. Cleanliness is a big concern in Thailand, this place is clean, soap and paper towells "that are usually non existant" are supplied, washrooms clean and functional! The owner and his wife both speak English,... More

Be sure to make reservations as I walked in on a Wednesday night at 7pm and they only had one open table as all the others were reserved. Good food and English menu.

We stuck to the thai dishes. Absolutely anazing larb pork, and stirfry squid with chilli paste. Good papaya salad but very spicy, good... More

We had an amazing meal here. Lovely chilled atmosphere with jazz music playing in the background. Service was great, food took a while but was well worth the wait. The red seafood curry was the best I have ever tasted. My husband ordered the Red chicken curry and was also not disappointed. My son loved the pasta with mussels. Our... More

Maybe i am unlucky but ordered the pad Thai here and it was horribly bland. No seasoning, no sauce - mild flavour. Embarrassing.
