The cultural show is both entertaining, colorful and beautiful. The food was bland for Thai standards and was not up to standards of other food we had in Chiang Mai. Also being an outdoor show, we constantly had flies landing on our food, quite unappetizing. The staff will also try and upsell you on soft drinks which are not cheap.... More

Thank you for coming to have dinner with us at the Old ChiangMai Cultural Center! Our food is of authentic northern Thai cuisine but only adapted slightly for foreigners. With the summer season, it is extremely hot outside so both the dinner and the first set of shows is inside. Please come again to experience our indoor dining room for... More

One of the largest museums I've visited. It's location and own personal history makes it perfect to be a city museum. A must-see for it's great introduction to Thai-ChiangMai history and the Lanna indigenous peoples. It also has traditional diorama displays and the latest interactive museum features.

This is truly a Cultural centre attraction. What it is not is a Cabaret and fine food dining. Its fun , its vibrant and a short but entertaining insight into Chiangmai culture. The entertainers are great and we must bear in mind that it is nice to still see young ones learning and participating in a very old culture. Give... More

Revisited the dinner show after two years with friends but was hugely disappointed. Program was cut short with much fewer dancers and dated costume. Dinner was acceptable but no longer recommended.

If you've been in Chiang Mai for a few days then you've probably seen every Wat and Museum this city has to offer, and possibly just looking for a relaxing evening out for dinner - look no further than this wonderful cultural experience. Traditional (and separate) Lanna and Hill Tribe performances accompanied by fantastic food and service is a must... More

We had a great meal of Thai offerings with more of your favorite items. Beer was available but quite expensive. The Cultural show had great costumes and pleasing dancers. Food service was exceptional and friendly. The Hill Tribe show following and in another venue was disappointing. Few dancers and most appeared to be quite disinterested in being there. Great pictures... More

We all enjoyed the good food and polite servers. The variety of dancers and costumes was entertaining. Some of the tourists distracted the audience with their constant filming.
