“Good northern Thai food”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Three of us went here on a weekday evening. Though the tables were not all occupied initially, the place filled up quite rapidly and became quite busy. Lots of locals and many young folk.

The food served was hot and delicious. Portion sizes were generous. The staff were helpful and when we were struggling with the language, they got another person who understood our English!

They will serve you red wine in glasses. But white wine, for some reason can be had only by the bottle. We had their red wine and it was very good! Beers and spirits are available too.


Service was very quick. And service charge was not automatically added! All very impressive.

“Cafe-like”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

The layout of the restaurant was quite unwelcoming and resembled a cheap cafe. The food was average and there were no vegetarian options on the menu.

“Very Good Quality northern Thai food”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

5 of us had a fir day lunch at this restaurant and were blown away by the quality/quantity of food and its not expensive. The thai salad and prawn dish was very tasteful. The dumplings and the fired minced pork was also good.

“It could have been better...”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

One my first evening I tried this restaurant after a long walk around because I forgot my map and google maps send me the wrong way... It was sunday night and quite busy. It was not that easy to order because staff who served my table did not spoke english and did not understand what I wanted to order from the english menu but at least we made it somehow. I had chicken with cashews which unfortunately was a bit too oily but it was eatable. I am not sure if i would really would recommend this place somewhere has to be better food in chiang rai.
