We met some Canadians in Krabi, one of them a former Chief. Both suggested strongly to visit the Swan. I like the Thai food very much - after 14 days traveling thru Thailand it was a change : additional herbs, fish differently prepared, vegetables nicely arranged ( and "new" ones ). On-top the food was hot but did not killing... More

A friend took me here to try the green tea leaf salad….I went back 3 more times! The food here is that good! Service can be slow, but in Chiang Mai things are not rushed. If you can, get a table in the back!

The food was great, on trip advisor's recommendation we got the Tea Leaf Salad which was delicious. The beef soup was also excellent, though a touch to spicy for us. Service wasn't a problem - though it wasn't very busy by the time we got around to eating.

We happened upon the Swan after walking about. We ordered a fish, pork and veg dish and all 3 were very good. We asked for spicy and they came out with a good bite of heat. The service was good and friendly and overall it was a very good meal.

Order the Burmese classics! The tea leaf salad, the beef curry, the beef soup, we ordered 6 mains altogether and they were all lovely! I'd go there again and again! Quite spicy though! Polite staff and nice atmosphere - would recommend !!! A must visit if you're in Chiang Mai !

Not far from the towering Amora Hotel you can find The Swan. A Burmese restaurant that is consistently good. Serving specialty spicy dishes, they will not disappointed. The meals can be ordered less spicy but that detracts from the full potential of the meals. For those in search of quality spicy food, look no further. Try the Tea Leaf salad... More

A Return to The Swan in Chiang Mai in February has rewarded us with the same high standards and delicious Burmese food. Most of the dishes are "spicy" and this is how they really should be eaten. They will temper the spiciness down if you ask them to but that misses the point of the basic dish. Try the Tea... More

Every time we visit Chiang Mai we make a point of eating at The Swan.his time we were in town for 3 nights and ate there twice. this probably says enough. Foods very tasty (almost total opposite of real Burmese food) good portions and service is also good.
