They changed locations, and the new place is a little difficult to find. We were given great directions by another restaurant owner near the original location. The restaurant is roomy, upscale-casual, and beautiful. The service is excellent. The food is simply spectacular. The fried rice is probably the best I've ever had. It was a little late when we were... More

The old location on Nimman road made it hard to park and the new location has ample parking and a lot more space for seating. The food was always decent enough but it seems that the chef may have changed because the food has improved quite a bit in my opinion. This is definitely one of my staples in Chiang... More

Good decor, good service, good food. Perfectly competent Thai food, reinterpreting streets favourites for dining, my Papaya salad was a superb reinvention of this dish for a less rumbustious palate ... full of flavour whilst still retaining that flash of street 'cred' Competent cooking.

Was introduced to this restaurant during my first trip by my friend based in CM. On my second trip, my family and I were there for 2 days out of 4 we spent in CM. The quality of the food is so good and they never disappointed me.

Visited this restaurant after our friend who lives in Chiang Mai recommended it. Was a great little place off Nimman Road. The menu was massive but we managed to pick a few dishes, including raw tiger prawns - these were amazing & I would recommend them to anyone visiting this place. All the dishes we had were very tasty &... More

The food remains as good as ever - popular with the locals, so that is a tip in itself. Arrived at 730pm on a Tuesday night and the place was packed, managed to occupy the last available table - seems that if you are to try the place out, booking a table might be a good move. The Quality of... More

This restaurant in the upmarket area of Nimmanhaemin is worth seeking out. Please note that the location on Google maps is wrong so that you do not end up walking back and forth trying to find it. It is not right near soi 15 as the tripadvisor map indicates but near the traffic lights. There is a small selection of... More

Consistently the best Thai food in town. Very centrally located and perfect to go to before a night on the town.

spent 14 days in thailand (bangkok, chiang mai, phuket, koh lanta) and this was easily the best food we ate. We tried fancy and hole in the wall restaurants and none beat this place. Nice big portions (for those from the US), a lot of great flavor, and a lot to choose from. Not over-rated in the least.
