I went to the "kantok" dinner tonight. The food was so-and-so (I agree with the other travelers mixed reviews), but the performance was overall very nice, with live music and traditional Thai dances. The service was very good and friendly. If you want to see a cultural show like this in Chiang Mai, this is the most decent option.

A great place to spend an evening. Sure it is touristy, but it is worth it. Where else can you get such a show and meal? The food was pretty good considering it is a tourist place, but the overall atmosphere is really what you go for. It is a great introduction to your Thailand trip. It sets the mood.... More

Went there in May not knowing what to expect. Usually food is good and show mediocre or the way around. I was surprised to find that this place had nice balance. Make sure you sit on the floor to be part of the entire experience. The price is also pretty good for what you get.

I admit i was a little skeptical with some of the mixed reviews on here. I went by myself just the other night and enjoyed myself. I expected as a single to be seated at a table with others, but instead i sat by myself with a whole table of food! The food was nice-there's enough variety that if you... More

the food was really great- no complaints there! the dance shows were kinda like watching American Indian dances. They are historical tribe dances, but not any traditional modern day activities.

Around 520baht per person for the food and the cultural performance. Drinks are not included. They will take a picture of you and sell it for 100baht.

Dinner cost 520baht, 620 with hotel pickup. It was just barely entertaining enough to keep us from waking out. The dinner was good but I don't know about value for the money.
