I did like this restaurant, the food was ok, quite simple but tasty, however it was quite expensive, I suppose you do pay for the location. The restaurant is by the river and dining there is a special experience, I would recommend it for a night out in Chiang Mai. It does have some live music and it gets pretty... More

Food wasn't terrible, but also not that great. Wait staff is effective, but not particularly cheery.

My husband and I went to The Riverside three times during our recent trip to Chiang Mai: once for lunch, once for dinner, and once for a drink. It was near our hotel and the hotel staff recommended it as a place where the locals go because the food is so good. Not expensive, and a fun vibe, especially at... More

Lovely setting and delicious food. Attentive waiters/watrons. Visited on several occasions. Live music (not noisy) added to the ambience.

The Riverside offers a catered cruise down the Mae Ping river and what a lovely experience it is. We have taken the cruise in the daytime and at night however if given the choice I'd prefer the night cruise. This is simply because the river and the lights are far prettier at night. The floating debris takes away from the... More

Great place to go to listen to Western cover bands. Would be nice if they removed the tables from in front of the stage though. Not saying that to discourage u from going, just maybe an owner might peek through here and see my recommendation. But yeah great food too. Also has a boat that leaves every night around 7... More

We were presented with "seasonal" specialties. I got squid ink noodles with seafood, and my wife got some sort of pork noodle dish from the main menu. My squid ink noodles and seafood were drenched in some sort of canned Italian style marinara sauce, enough that the noodles and seafood were completely lost in the strong taste of sauce. No... More

I have spent a few days in Chiang Mai and ate in local places which offered amazing food without been on the trip advisor list, this one was and really the only thing going for them was being on the river, the rest is not even close to local amazing food, which is offered at a very cheap price.

This restaurant was fantastic. We went with a 5 & 8yo & everyone enjoyed the ambience & feel of the restaurant. We didn't do the boat as it was a bit late for the kids. However we sat down on the terrace & it had a rustic feel but was really charming. The staff made every effort to help with... More

Various menu, including Thai cuisine and international cuisine. and they taste good and fair price. the atmosphere is also great because it's close to Ping river. You can enjoy many good food with nice music and band. but sometimes, there are too many customers, it may hard to get seats you if you go there with a big group.
