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.

The service is fast but the staff are not really enjoyable, maybe due to lots of customers in the restaurant, you have to reserve in advance for a table in the boat that you can enjoy the riverview. However, lots of tourists from China made the restaurant noisy

Whenever we have guests in town we would take them out one night to experience a great selection of Thai food and enjoy our dinner with a river cruise. The view of the city at night is so romantic and refreshing. The food is simply great.

Residing in a hotel not far from this restaurant, I had immediately noticed it. Then, when the driver of the songthaew, which had brought us around Chiang Mai throughout a whole afternoon, passing in front of the restaurant, recommended it to us, we had no more doubts. Perhaps because we had such high expectations. we can say that we were... More

I have been many times, the place is always packed. They have great Thai food and the location is great. You can eat inside or by the river. With a reservation you can eat on their river cruise boat.
