We ate here twice for dinner and three times for breakfast - each time was perfect with fantastic food. You have a beautiful view of the river and the service is beyond perfect. Each meal was just so fantastic that my mouth is still watering thinking about it. Everything cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

After 2 weeks of eating nothing but Thai (which I love) I was craving some western food and stumbled into this beautifully presented modern restaurant. The menu is diverse, serving both Thai and western dishes. I had the most amazing bruschetta + pizza, all washed down with 2 cocktails which were to die for. The staff were super friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.

Got to love that name. Clever and fun.

The restaurant itself is lovely with fabulous floors, lighting, table settings, amazing staff and an extensive menu with both Thai and Western but not fusion.
The fact that it opens onto the river and you are able to sit on the beautiful terrace is a bonus.

Sadly the food today was a little disappointing.

My Khao Soi (250 baht) was very heavy handed on the chilli which could have been a misunderstanding. The menu description depicts one chilli and I checked with the waiter, he may have thought I wanted more chilli not less.
Apart from that it was lovely, the noodles both cooked and fried were a great consistency, the curry sauce was smooth, rich and creamy, with generous pieces of chicken.
If the chilli had not been so overpowering I would have been thrilled with this dish.

Wok fried duck with vegetables in a pepper sauce (380 baht) with a side dish of rice (20 baht) again was disappointing as the duck was more boiled than wok fried making it less than tender.
The flavours were good but the vegetables were predominantly capsicum chunks which were not appealing.
The fish and chips (350 baht) were faultless. Best dish of the day. 6 skinny fillets of fish battered and cooked beautifully, crispy light batter with moist flakey fish inside served with a basket of chips, not fries, tartare sauce and a lemon wedge.
Two beers (120 baht each) and a white wine.( 220 baht)

Although it wasn't as fabulous as I had hoped I,would return any chance I got as it may have just been a bad day or an error in ordering.
We were also the only people in for lunch, perhaps dinner is better when the kitchen is busier

This is now my favourite fancy restaurant in Chiang Mai. The seating on the river is beautiful and the service excellent. We have eaten at other 'high-end' restaurants on the river and found the service to be over-bearing, but the level of attention was exactly right. The food was also excellent - we had a beautiful duck red curry and a khao soi, and the mango sticky rice to follow. We arrived on a no-alcohol (religious festival) night, so had mocktails and they were beautiful - I had a very good 'virgin mojito' that tasted almost exactly like a real mojito. We will be back!

What a delightful riverfront restaurant.
Went for a Sunday lunch and decided on lunch by the Mae Ping.
Great kerbside appeal which draws you in.
It is next door to Sala Lanna Hotel, "On's"big brother.
Our table was for 5 adults. Cost 2,700 Baht.
The dishes are exceptional and drinks are so different to surrounding eateries.
With this comes higher prices, but this is not a criticism.
We considered the great food outweighed the cost.

Thank Cynthia B

Dear Cynthia, not only should we thank you for your lovely review but for your encapsulating header too "Not Just a Restaurant it's an experience!" I think you pretty much summed up what we are trying to achieve for all our guests and we certainly achieved this with you. We are really pleased you had such a splendid luncheon and we truly hope you’ll return perhaps for our Live Jazz Band which plays every Friday and Saturday from 19.00 – 22.00 hrs. Our very best wishes the sala management.
