Loud European & US music, hamburgers and pizza... Are you still in Thailand? Only if you want to try on of the average and plain local dishes. Service is obviously bored by serving so many Western tourists every night, and apparently not interested in making your meal a memorable event. The only nice thing about the place is the view...

Four of us decided to use the dinner cruise. We made reservations the day before to make sure we could get on. We got there a few minutes before boarding so we took that time to pick out the foods and LOTS of drinks and buckets of ice (You can't order once the boat leaves so make sure you're well... More

It was difficult to get a table for 4 persons. At the river side there was a waiting time of 30 minutes and up, so we went to the other side of the road. We choose to sit outside, however the staff already mentioned that if it would be raining harder they did not have a table for us inside.... More

The Riverside is a great little dive-- so great that my friends and I went twice during our short stay in Chiang Mai. While none of the food is out-of-this-world (I had the Panang curry) and I think the liquor was fake (no one even felt a buzz after finishing off a bottle of tequila!) the music is fun and... More

On the river bank of the Ping. This restaurant is a lovely place to visit if you want Thai or western food. Very relaxed in one section or very lively in another section of the complex. Live music Quality of food is high and still remaining good value for money. Will be revisiting shortly for the boat restaurant. Well worth... More

Burger wasn't anything to praise about, fruit wasn't ripe and staff was pretty rude; didn't make you feel welcomed and stood there watching you the entire time you ate... Weird...
