Had a late dinner which was very good. Beautiful location and the bands were a lot of fun. As the evening progressed the place filled with locals dancing and having fun. Great Spot

This is a 5-star cost restaurant with good food and good service. The Riverside is great for family and friends. Nice and friendly with good parking. The restaurant is NOT air conditioned.

Nice laid back feel with live music pumping out. It was busy on a Tuesday night with mixture of locals and falang. Didn't eat here, just had a few cocktails (mid-priced) and enjoyed the guitar-playing.

We had a fantastic meal here and the menu was extensive and reasonably priced. Right on the river it was extremely well patronised by both locals and tourists which speaks volumes for any restaurant. Our meal was delicious and the drinks were also reasonably priced. Service was great and we will return.

We did the river cruise and did not eat in the restaurant. Upon arrival to the boat, it seemed like chaos as the staff were running all over the place and didn't appear to be organized.

Very good food on a nice terrace overlooking the river. Targetted at tourists, Thais as well as foreign. Service pleasant enough though very slow and forgetful.

Last week we have dined at riverside. This restaurant is so popular both at European as well as Asian people that it is a bit crowded. But we did not have to wait long for a table. We liked the food and also here a good variety of both Thai as well as European dishes. Although very busy, staff has... More
