High prices for the typical northern Thai dishes and some specials. Lovely decorated - but not spicy enough, neither really balanced and without proving any mastership making the prices reasonable.

Stopped for one last meal before heading to the airport. Great and attentive service but mediocre food. Food presentation and excellent clean western like atmosphere are what you will love.

It is still what I would call (excellent) Thai food with a twist but I don't know if the chef is the same. Hope this helps. If you are a foodie it is worth checking out Casa Diverso (guessing at the spelling without looking... More
