Great menu which doesn't disappoint when the food arrives, high quality and very tasty Thai food served in a great environment (slightly crooked, old wooden beamed house) hidden away down one of Oxford's historic alleyways. Have been back numerous times for many years and yet to have a bad meal or experience. Highly recommended.

A lovely old wooden beamed house down an alleyway off the High Street in Oxford, this was a wonderful find for us. booking is recommended and we only got in at 7.30 because we agreed one hour would be sufficient for us. Accordingly we kept it simple and all had the same starter and main. but what main and starter... More

I am a fan of Thai food, and Chiang Mai has been the best Thai I have eaten! The food was pricey, but definitely worth it. Wait staff was friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes. I would go back again in a heartbeat.

Due to the good reviews of this Thai restaurant we decided to give it a try and came away happy with our meal. We started with crispy chicken wings from the specials menu which were very tasty and hot (chilli hot!). We also had a papaya salad which was delicious. If you've never tried one then give it blast. It's... More

After much raving about for many years from friends and colleagues, we thought we'd try this aaa birthday treat. I wanted to love it, really I did. Average at best food, and fairly premium prices. Hopefully they were having an 'off' night, but terribly disappointing

I love how you enter Chiang Mai, through a narrow slit off the High Street. Then you go up a rickity staircase that feels like it's out of the 15th century. There are two attractive dining rooms upstairs, and you can also eat downstairs. The vegetable Pad Thai was huge and had just the right amount of coriander and peanuts.... More

The fried spring rolls were hot and tasty. My Pad Thai was sweeter than I'm used to, but still delicious. The service was friendly and accommodating, and they had a pretty decent wine selection for a Thai restaurant. There are a few tables on the ground floor, but most tables are on the 1st floor (no lift), so be prepared... More

The food and service was second to none. We stumbled across this lovely Thai restaurant by chance while visiting Oxford. The restaurant was packed but had a fabulous atmosphere. Although the restaurant was full the service was excellent. We felt relaxed and happy. We couldn't have asked for more. The food came promptly and was presented beautifully and tasted delicious....

Excellent authentic Thai cuisine for the connoisseur. You will not be disappointed. Freshly prepared with ample portions. Excellent service too, in a friendly atmosphere. For a treat try the flora green tea after the meal (fresh green tea leaves with an unfolding flower of your choice).
