“Very busy with a great menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

My wife and I own a well known Thai restaurant in Bangkok, so you can imagine that we find it difficult sometimes finding a place to eat Thai food that measures up for us in terms of quality and service. The Good View was recommended by our taxi driver as is usual and is located right on the river just outside the old city. It is a huge place with 3 kitchens and was almost packed when we arrived. The tables are large, the menu is extensive, the prices are reasonable and the food was excellent. The service was not exceptional, but really quite good for a place of that size and that busy. They have a band playing soft rock at the front of the house with a good sized bar there as well. All in all the experience was good enough that we went back the next night. The only negative I can really comment on is the poor, poor lighting. So dark that we had to use our cell phone flashlights to read the menu. Well worth the visit if you are in Chiang Mai.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The good view is on the river and in a great location. It is a large place with both indoor and outdoor (go outside and sit by the river) The menu is extensive and the food excellent. The staff are really welcoming but! one word of warning it is very popular with locals and Farangs so it maybe worth booking in advance if you want a "prime" table.

“great ambience, ok food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Standard Thai fare with western dishes popular with Thai people. I doubt anybody come specifically for the food but the view and vibe more than make up for it.

“Great Lunch with River Views”

Walked up the river and found this great bar and restaurant on the side of the river. Good prices and great food. Smokey BBQ chicken wings were amazing.

“Romantic evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Very lucky that we stumbled over this place at the river side. Managed to get at table in the far end of the restaurant as there is a live band performing in the bar area. Very good Thai food a reasonable cost and a surprisingly good selection of wines at affordable cost. Friendly staff and good and quick service. First disk was on the table within 10 minutes. Super place.
