“Good breakfast buffet”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I was looking for a decent breakfast buffet for a group (8 people) of my friends, while they visited Chiang Mai. The Victoria breakfast buffet was really nice. 200 baht and worth it. Eggs cooks to order, Asian food items, fresh vegetables. Few kind of breads, cold and hot drinks, cakes and other desert items. Air-conditioned mid-size place. Very friendly service. I recommend if you in Nimman area.

“Good English pub in strange location”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 via mobile

This place serves great food every day and a nice carvery on a Sunday too, the location is odd and there is often problems finding parking nearby. It used to be air con but it has recently been changed to an open style and now appears to have no air con, though it's shaded and has good fans.

“Yeah, better now...”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

First of all, this review is for the restaurant/ bar bit of the Queen Victoria, not the guesthouse bit. I haven't stayed in the guesthouse bit so it would hardly be reasonable for me to comment on it. I have been to the restaurant/ bar bit a few times though. Gone are the stupid sexist/ racist cartoons in the men's toilet, the eating area's been spruced up a lot and looks a little more like a restaurant in Chiangmai instead of a fake British pub in Tokyo and they seem to be a little more interested in making some money out of the place as opposed to just opening and closing the kitchen or whatever whenever they feel like it.

Their food's pretty decent- although the menu is all over the place and they don't really seem to have about half the things on it. The Thai food is cheap and tasty but I haven't had any Western food (I don't see the point really) so I have no opinion on that. Drinks won't hurt your wallet and although the street noise is a little loud, that's not their fault. It's a nice, more or less non-touristy place (it's by the North Gate as opposed to Backpacker Row) and not a bad place for a lingering drink on a sunny Chiangmai afternoon.

“May have been okay once. Now, not so much...”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

I gather this place (Chiang Mai location, not Pattaya) has passed through a few hands over the last several years. I suspect the next hands it may pass through will be those of whatever bank has lent the latest owner money because it looks a lot like it's on its last legs. While the food's not bad and the beer's cheap, there's just something lacking here. Food served only until six, although with a sigh, they'll go past that and they stick to the "no alcohol between 2pm and 5pm" rule so that's a drag. Feels like whoever owns it now (possibly some Swiss guy?) bought it on a whim without realizing that he needs to put the effort in. The cartoons in the men's room are tasteless at best, offensive at worst. Imagine have a decent, cheap meal, going to the bog, and seeing 3 dozen cartoons lampooning Thai prostitutes? In a city with as many dining options as Chiangmai, why would you need to give a place like this the benefit of the doubt? They could do so, so much better.
