This place is a short walk to our guest house. We decided to eat there because of a rainy night. We didn't expect much but pleasantly surprised by the nice open air setting. The food was fine, We had a good relaxing evening.

Well it doesn't live up to its TA rating in my view. Yes the setting is lovely but service is terrible. At least those staff who had a large badge with "trainee" on had some excuse. Who was training them and to what standard was impossible to determine. The menu is somewhat confusing, I was served my friend's main dish... More

The spareribs with garlic are to die for! Food was a slight twist on traditional Thai but it totally worked. Beautiful setting.

You are served with fusion thai food. Their seafood is wonderful and can make your mouth water. Don't forget the spicy Coconut Shrimp Soup which is so tasty! The appearance of their food is so well prepared that you will probably not want to but dare to eat it.

I have mixed views about this place. The setting was lovely and the food reasonably good. But the hardworking staff seemed not well trained and so service was below expectation although the cafe was not full. I am also disappointed with the state of the toilets.

Go early before disappointment. Some food finished because so many people ordered since morning. Tried Pah Thai and Thai milk tea. It was so good!

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!
