Didn't order off the menu as we had a set buffet breakfast as part of being involved with the Chiang Mai Expats Club. What we had on offer was a nice western breakfast with some Thai food as well. The lovely aspect located beside the river beckons us to come back again for lunch or dinner.

We love the view and service plus the drinks, food and waitstaff. I especially liked the Burmese pork hock and the pamalo with fish. Everything we have ordered have been top notch..

Lovely evening catching up with friends who live in Chiang Mai, she suggested this place because of it's great Thai food and we weren't disappointed! Easy to find, just by the iron bridge. Great Thai food, reasonably priced for its excellent location.

Ate here for dinner. Good variety on the menu ( with pictures ). We had Thai food. Albeit a it Westernized it was still good food. 5 stars for the setting. Service is okay, but a bit forgetful.

Dinner for two on Christmas Day. There was no special Christmas menu but we just chose from the very extensive usual menu. Our favourite dishes were the pineapple rice and a really nice, spicy fish dish (can't remember the name) . Enjoyed it all really. We ordered a bottle of the house red which was absolutely fine for the price... More

We had a late lunch at The River Market yesterday. The food and the service was excellent. The restaurant was clean, open air and with great expansive views of the river. What I noted was NO FLIES because the day before at lunch at the Gallery also on the river there were lots of flies !!! It made it difficult... More

A very nice and picturesque restaurant on the Mae Ping river. The food was fantastic, and the waitstaff were willing to make some special dishes requested by my partner that were not on the regular menu, particularly Pu Phat Phong Karee or soft-shelled crab in yellow curry. Wonderful food in a very clean and nice environment.

I always have the tuna in a bed of papaya salad. Ask for none spicy. I love rice with the Burmese style pork. I believe I have the recipe now. Some reviews say it is over priced but for the location you can not complain.
