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.

Great food here at Khao Soi Khun Yai...Was recommended to us by the locals and did not disappoint...Had the Khao Soi Beef (Which was so flavoursome and really Tasty) with Longan Juice and Bottle of Water...Total Cost 90 Bhat (around £2)... It is only open...from 1000-1400 so get there early as we left around 1100 and it was almost full.More

This is one of the best Khao Soi eateries in CM...we have Khao Soi daily and this time tried to rate them. This place is the top. I get very excited each year when we pull up.Fabulous and $1.37 USD....You don't pay when you order,...just order and the nice lady tells you where to sit, and the place is always busy...Then when you leave, you pay. Doesn't get much better than that!! Delicious...More

We are on a Khao Soi tasting tour of Northern Thailand and Khao Soi Khun Yai is not to be missed! Nice portion size for cheap price. KSKY was in our top 2 of about 10 famous places we have tried. Aunties behind the counter...were sweet and smiling and we were happy and left with full bellies. I will definitely return again this trip and every time I visit Chiang Mai from now on. Thanks to Mark Wiens’ recommendation on Youtube, Khao Soi Khun Yai is one of our favorites and a wonderful memory of our epic holiday in Chiang Mai! ♥️🇺🇸♥️🇹🇭More

The entrance to this place is well highlighted with a massive board, and parking to boot. What really catches the eye though, is the number of women in their staff. It’s akin to a lot of mums and grandmamas rolling up their sleeves to show...us how it’s done :) Their portion size is perfect for 1 person. I love their no nonsense menu that just cuts to the chase! They offer fresh long juice with ice which is a delightful accompaniment to their beef khao soi. The khao soi & the juice together cost me 80 baht and endless smiles. Do give it a chanceMore

Great atmosphere to eat breakfast or lunch. The place closes at 14:00. They serve the tastiest khao soi at a reasonable price and you can pick from chicken, beef or pork. There is mostly always a queue, mostly filled with locals and it’s definitely worth...the wait! Staff are friendly and the place is clean.More

What more can be said. About this place, just make sure you get there before 12 otherwise you will be waiting a while for a seat . Simply the best khao Soi.

Loved coming back to this hidden gem in Chiang Mai. Make sure that you get in early as you'll be waiting and likely to run out of Khao Soi nua (beef). We came at an exceptionally busy time having to wait over an hour to...be served and unfortunately ran out of beef. Despite the wait, Khao Soi is exceptional.More

Delicious Khao Soi and it’s cheap. Went there at 10plus and mostly fully seated. Glad to try it. Must order their longan drink to go with it. The longan drink is very refreshing and not too sweet.

1st return since Covid. Seating area was full as this restaurant continues to be the more popular Khao Soi destination in the city. I stated in 2019 that there was seating for 100; that was a high estimate; I counted 45 seats this visit with...new arrivals waiting patiently for diners to leave. As in my first visit, the time to get your food after placing your order is close to 30 minutes at full capacity. I still have no problem with that as it’s worth the wait. The Khao Soi at 50 tbd arrived hot, fresh and delicious. It was more spicy than I remember it and many napkins are needed for nose and chin. Next time I will bring my own napkins as not enough are provided per table. I stand by my original assessment of this restaurant as being not only the most affordable Khao Soi I’ve found but the best I’ve found in Chiang Mai, in Thailand or in America. Great khao soi; patience and napkins required.?More

This was the first place we visited in Chiang Mai. We arrived at almost 2 PM but the Khao Soi was sold out. We felt so sad because this was on the top of our list. One of the nice customers recommended another restaurant. While...we were getting a grab, the owner/staff approached us and said she will cook for us! The customer service was so amazing and this was a real deal. I will highly recommend this place.More

There are only meat options here, and the broth (curry sauce) would have been boiled meat juices in it as well, even if you ordered it Mang Saweerat (vegetarian). If you are looking for vegetarian Khao Soi, Aum Vegetarian... More
