Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visit for a late breakfast / brunch with wife and two kids. The breakfast was by far the best we have had so far. The food was stunning as were the drinks and not a single morsel was left by anyone. My son had the...full breakfast of Omelette, crispy bacon, sourdough, ham and salad. My wife had pancakes, as did I and my youngest had a fantastic fruit, yoghurt bowl. Staff were friendly and it was exceptionally clean. Lovely setting in the garden although we sat inside for the air con as was so hot. Highly recommended.More

Lovely courtyard garden area within the city. Nice spot for breakfast / brunch. My partner and I both ate the smoothie bowls which were delicious!

We ate breakfast, brunch or late lunches here most days... the breakfast/brunch is the best in the area with wonderful service seat amongst a lush green oasis with the trickling sound of water. It's quite an amazing hidden oasis more akin to a terrace setting...at a five star hotel. Simply wonderful.More

Nice environment. Were lucky to get a table as often see people queuing here. Had smoothies, as was told there was no fresh coconut, although shortly after we saw people ordering fresh coconut 🤔 however, smoothies were really good. Ordered fish and chips and toasted...a cheese sandwich which was all pretty good. Overpriced but you're paying for the environment reallyMore

When we were seated at a table we were not given menus after 10 minutes we had to ask a passing waitress for menus. Then it took another 10 minutes for a waitress to take our order. It then took another 10 minutes for me...to get my drink however my husband had to wait about 10 minutes to get his drink. Mean whil a couple who was seated at the same time as us had received their drinks and meals. When I finally got my meal, my husband had not and the couple who were seated the same time as us were finished with there meal and left. My husband then flagged a waitress down and asked where his meal was at. She looked confused and walked away to talk with another waitress. My husband then waited another 5 minutes and flagged the waitress down and told her to cancel his meal and give us the bill. The waitress comes back to the table with the bill and tried to charge us for his meal that he did not receive. I told her he didn’t receive meal and she then tells us it will be out in 2 minutes. My husband told her no and we paid for what we ate and drank and walked out. Not a good experience. I would not recommend this place based on our experience. The drinks were good the pad Thai kung ( fried noodles with shrimp) was ok that I had but I have had better. it was loaded down with more tofu then noodles and 2 pieces of shrimp.More

So lucky to find this lovely, relaxing cafe just 100m from my hotel. After a couple of weeks touring Thailand it was so nice to sit in comfortable chairs in a beautiful garden area. It seems to be very popular with locals and tourists and...there were people queuing for a table at lunch time. Had an amazing toasted cheese sandwich followed by coconut cream pie washed down with a flat white coffee. Service was attentive. The whole ambience was really nice and provides something of an oasis in a busy city. Other lovely looking cakes were available to eat in or takeaway. I would highly recommend this cafe.More

Really great atmosphere and food, menu choice and quality. Slightly expensive for Chiang Mai but good quality. Girls are friendly with service but need better training and management. It feels random and one has to ask all the time. Perhaps dedicating staff to designated tables...will give them ownership of their service.More

The best restaurant in Chiang Mai, in our opinion. Everything was perfect! Staff extremely kind, food was wonderful and the atmosphere… OMG it is incredible. It is like an oasis in the middle of the town. We were luck to be passing by when there...were live music- jazz playing. The musician was amazing which added another star for our experience. We loved so much that we went there 3 times in 2 days. 😅More

Beautiful green oasis in Chiang Mai's old town. Reasonably priced thai and international dishes. Four people ordered but only three were served. Our daughter's food arrived after two reminders and 30 minutes after everybody else finished eating. Unfortunately this is the memory we will take...away of fern forest café.More
