I had a soft shell crab and a beef salad , seriously good prices very reasonable , nice ambience they did miss a meal , which wasn't a worry because their servings were generous it wasn't an issue getting it removed from the bill so all good

My wife and I had lunch here during our stay in CM. The restaurant was in a nice setting, located on the river Ping but unfortunately this has apparently resulted in the cost of foods being more than it should be. The restaurant is nicely outfitted and the staff were pleasant and helpful. We had a table looking out onto... More

My family and I have just returned from a 3 week trip to Asia, centered around the lantern festival in Chiang Mai. Our evening on November 14th started out as a bit of a blunder… We had made a riverside dining reservation at our hotel but our table was given away to someone else, so we headed to Sapaan Lek...

As some other reviewers have said, you're paying for the river view at this restaurant -- as with most waterfront restaurants. Granted, it's a nice view and the food is good, and you can get a Singapore Sling if you want one. For one evening away from the street food and the crowds, this place is calm and very pretty....

Nothing terrible about the food just not up to the usual standard we've found in Chiang Mai and more expensive. You're paying for the location and the nice views. Go to Lemongrass instead!

we especially enjoyed the curry short ribs. tender and flavorful Due to venue being near river and lawn, it was swarmed by mosquitoes but the restaurant did provide repellant to mitigate it.

Glorious food and location! Shame about the rain but would definitely recommend! Not unreasonable in price but if you are ordering a meat dish, rice is a side order and does not come with the meal as stated on the menu. Try not to get ripped off by taxis because, as we realised when we arrived, we were actually in... More

I've been here several times before and the meals are really good, but if you sit on the left as you go in, close to the road, there is a very strong septic smell that keeps wafting over. My advice is to sit to the right as you go in. If you like Thai spicy, you need to request it,... More

My family and I visited Chiang Mai recently and had a dinner at the River Market Restaurant. The restaurant is situated by the River Ping over looking the Iron Bridge. The structure of the restaurant is built with massive wooded beams. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive. The prices are upper mid-range but you get good... More

Just had lunch here. The place is nice, just right beside the river. But, to me, the food was just OK.

Thank Kamarol
