Great live music, food, and drinks. Mixture of locals and tourists gives this place a really good vibe. Would definitely go back!

Went here for dinner on a friend's recommendation. The food arrived quickly but was really average (and overpriced for the quality and quantity) but the views are amazing. Staff seemed a little chaotic and rushed - and this is on a Thursday evening. Felt pressured to eat and leave.

We were recommended the Riverside by our hotel. The resultant was extremely busy and full of tourists. The menu was huge and the food was good (would be great for families with fussy children as the menu had both Thailand & western style food). However, you couldn't help feeling rushed so they could bring the next bunch of tourists through.

We had an early dinner here out on the back patio, overlooking the Ping River. Nice environment to watch the sunset. We shared an appetizer of thai spring rolls, wife had sautéed vegetables with cashew nuts. I had a fried fish which was very tasty, cooked nicely. It's a bit pricey by Chiang Mai standards, but you're paying for river... More

My husband and I booked the Riverside dinner cruise along with a friend. They suggest you reserve in advance - we called same day and were able to get a table for 5, though 2 weren't able to make it in the end. Then you arrive at 7:15 and they seat you on the boat and take your orders. You... More

We went there for couple of drinks... and apparently there was a live concert/music between bands, so its was fully packed! good vibe, there´s table by the river. Seems more local people frequent that bar/restaurant. I´ll recommend this place if you´re sick of night market bars

We had lunch here as they had a fair European meanu and we were off of Thai food that day! Prices were reasonable and food was nice enough. Slight language barrier.

The Riverside is a combination between a club with bands performances and a good restaurant. We arrived During a performance and the place was packed. We were sitted outside by the river so although we heard the music we were able to hear each other as well. The food was good and the atmosphere is very lively. A nice place... More

Had dinner here tonight. Really good food lovely setting lots of atmosphere. Group playing in the background. We had to wait but who cares it's an indication of the restaurant's success. Leaving here Friday may go back if we have time

The night time view of the iron bridge and the Riverside setting make this restaurant worth a visit. Lively atmosphere, queues to get a table and a good list of reasonably priced cocktails make it a favorite evening/night spot. Food is okay, some dishes for instance the Son in Law Eggs were excellent, others - like the pork belly -... More
