Review of Fai Bakery

Fai Bakery
Ranked #12 of 29 Bakeries in Chiang Mai
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 December 2012

There are several Fai Bakery outlets around town.
All clean and modern, rather cantine like in appearance.
Good place for an inexpensive Thai lunch. Although being a bakery
they sell cakes and cookies, and although there is nothing wrong with them at all - they are the Asian style of what western cakes are. For coffee and cake there are more agreeable places around.

Fai restaurant and bakery is just as it says. I will review the restaurant part first: Four of us went there for meal and were presented with a menu written in Thai, but with the English translation underneath. We were very specific about which meals we ordered, pointing and repeating what we wanted. What 3 of us received was nothing like what had been ordered and had to be returned, not once, but twice, when again the incorrect meals came out. The other couple were charged for all meals that were incorrectly presented, but which had not been ordered. I specifically said I wanted a chicken dish with NO CHILLI and was assured that the dish would not contain any. When I took my first mouthful I could feel my lips burning, even others at the table agreed there was lots of chilli in it. I sent it back but couldnt really be bothered risking ordering another meal.

The bakery on the other hand is a different story. Their gateaux and desserts are divine and my meal that night consisted of a strawberry gateau and chocolate mousse with icecream.

Located away from the usual tourist areas in the "old city" section of Chiang Mai is Fai Bakery. Fai Bakery sells very tasty and cheap Thai pastries as well as local Thai dishes in the restaurant that is connected to the bakery. The food at the restaurant was very good and good sized for the price. The local dishes tended to be a bit on the spicy side. If you want something a little milder just ask for "no chills" and you should be ok. Overall a great place where you can mingle with the locals and get a sense of everyday life in Chiang Mai.
