But not the Riverside. Food was mediocre at best, which shouldn't come as a surprise I guess given the location, as that is what it is all about (location, location), but the non-existent service is what was the biggest disappointment. Took our order, some dishes came, finally the drink orders showed up, a few more dishes arrived, but never our... More

The Riverside has been around for forever and is definitely worth a visit for the view of the river and the atmosphere.The mojito was excellent but the food was nothing special (steak wrapped in bacon). Go here for the romantic atmosphere on the river, not the food!

We had lunch there. The staff was uninterested and quite unfriendly, the food was overcooked (we took the burger) and quite tasteless, and it all was (relatively) expensive.

Great food and a grear atmosphere with live music. Probe Ely the most expensive meal I've paid for in Thailand but at £6 for a peppered steak and chips I think I can live with it

We read the comments and hesitate to come back even we went already three time with pleasure. That was a good choice. Food, location and music are good. We eat our best Chiang Mai sausage there. We will turn back

We didn't eat hear as it was packed with a long waiting list! So I assume the food is good. The bar was great with a nice Thai band and we enjoyed relaxing by the river after dinner.
