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.

Awesome little cafe. Very convenient just past the clock tower. Nice to stop during a hot day for a drink and nosh. Yummy fruit smoothies and good cocktails. Very inexpensive. Only food we ordered was sausage and it was delicious. Lovely service.

Lovely little place with great, friendly staff. I had pineapple rice with chicken and hubby had chicken with basil, both of which were delicious, we had a few beers and people watched. Would definitely recommend xx

The best Khao Soi in Chiang Rai, a must if you are around and next to the clock tower so you can do two things at once. Waitress was great also :)

We struggled to get a table initially as it is a small venue. Also, orders took a while, but we were in no rush. Fabulous khao soi. Best we had in the northern region!

Great English and Irish breakfast (proper sausage 😋) and omelette for our little girl! Amazing smoothies! Lots of ants on the wall behind us so had to keep moving to stop them crawling on us. Will sit elsewhere next time! But the food was much...needed after our mediocre hotel breakfastsMore

Was not quite what I expected after seeing the menu online. It was a very tiny little place with limited seating and no indoor dining. The food we ordered was Western Style and very nice although it wasn't cooked on the premise.

A nice little cafe with a good mix of Thai and western menu options. The Thai stuff is executed perfectly while the western is close but just a little bit off. This is pretty standard though. Best rule of thumb is eat local. The Khao...Soi is incredible and a must try.More
