Something here for everyone

The Riverside has a VERY extensive menu, of both Western and Thai dishes. This makes it great for families when Mum and Dad might want Thai (the Tom Ka Gai was superb), and the kids might prefer a BLT and fries (as our daughter did). We ate here at lunch time, and it was not busy, but I think... read more

I am always wary of reviews by one-time reviewers in TA and as a norm ignore them. Despite what some of these reviews say, this is an excellent restaurant. I do not know where else 4 people can eat great food, with beer and with great views of the river. The Northern Thai food was excellent. The servings were not... More

The food was fantastic. Priced a little higher than other restaurants but definitely worth it. Restaurant is right on the river.

We saw the Tripadvisor sign outside the restaurant; so we knew that it was highly rated. Walked in and the place was massive! The menu options were more than necessariy; especially the western options (perhaps for all the westerners), but the ones we picked (thai!) were absolutely declicious

If you like Sticky tables, offhand service(by Thai standards) and lacklustre food, then this is the place for you. Read reviews before going and was expecting much more. Small place with guaranteed custom means they don't have to try....someone else will soon take your place. Disappointing.

My boyfriend and I were recommend the Riverside by the hotel and we absolutely recommend it to everybody. We went on a Saturday night (so not sure if it's like this every night) we went in and thought it was a tiny little pub, it was so busy! At the back of the pub bit you are able to dine/drink...

We had a table outside right next to the water which made for a very relaxing evening as we enjoyed currie, watched people float candles down the river, and board the boat for the 8:00 dinner cruise. Food was good and prices very reasonable. Wait staff very friendly and enthusiastic but not always available. We'd go back...

Easier going than neighbors. Staff attentive. Selection of US craft beers. Price is average but nice location. Will go again.

As our hotel was nearby we often had dinner at The Riverside. The outdoor and balcony dining had lovely views across the river. Service was always prompt and efficient. The menu was extensive with Thai, Northern Thai and European dishes. The food was always great. My favorite was the Gang Hung Leh curry - highly recommended if you enjoy spicy,... More
