Located by the river this is the perfect place to go and relax. There is ample outdoor seating which looks onto the river giving a serene feeling. The service is excellent with staff being attentive to all needs. Drinks were excellent and I had the best berry smoothie I had throughout my stay in Thailand. The food arrived swiftly and was delicious including the dessert options.

Do not leave Chiang Rai without visiting :) I had the Chiang Rai Pork Curry and a cheesecake. The food was delicious, decor was very beautiful but the truly outstanding part of this dinner experience was the service. The owner seems delighted to have us and employees happy to help. Would strongly recommend / visit again.

Really a delightful and classy place overlooking the river in Chiang Rai. Lovely European style cottage atmosphere, with beautiful garden and outdoor seating. Great food, great beer and freindly staff help make it by far the best place in town.

Great place for afternoon tea and coffee, but I am sitting here and still waiting for my food. It was 20 minute since we ordered and then they realized that they forgot to put the order in the kitchen, no sign of anyone apologizing for the delay.

After 45 minutes, finally food arrives cold. I guess that's Thailand!

Dear Nickys K,

Thank you so much for visiting us and taking time to write the review.

We are so sorry about what happened. We have checked our log book and that afternoon our ordering software had some issues and apparently some orders did not reach the kitchen. This has now been fixed. In any case you should have been offered compensation for the delay. Sorry again for our mistakes, this is not the normal standard of service we offer, neither of Thailand in general. Please call me on 081-9842925 so we can offer you something special and set things right. Hope to see you again soon. NATTAMON
