Myself and three other travellers went to go for a civilised drink after a wonderful dinner and came down to the waterside.

We stopped here for a drink and say next to the river. There was a very relaxed feel and the staff waited on your every need which is good. But can be a bit annoying when they try to constantly refill your glass.

Prices seemed a little but higher but this is a swanky face filled with successful young Thai people. Be a smart place to impress a girl.

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.

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.

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.

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.
