Eat 'at home' on Nimman near Maya and Think Park, Chiang Mai

Yes there are lots of new restaurants large and small in the Nimman area... but my top pick for Thai food is an old, quaint family-run one that I keep going back to for its good, honest food, low prices, outstanding service and pleasant homey surroundings -- you feel you've walked into someone's... read more

This restaurant is a favorite of friends and we had a pleasant Chinese dinner here. According to these friends there are not many ordinary food-oriented (rather than drinking oriented) fair priced places in this area of town, and this place is an old, classic place that is their go-to place for Chinese. Solid food...not the most memorable Chinese meal I... More

We pass by this beautiful restaurant in the day and we are sure to come back to have dinner here. That is a bright decision. Order Sontam papaya salad that to die for, and read in the Internet that the Pad Thai of this restaurant is the best one in Chiang Mai, that is true. We came to Thailand many... More

Substandard, overpriced food clearly catered to tourists. Service is lacklustre and unfriendly. We had the hors douerves which came with bland nam prik num and just 3 slices of sausage. The royal project salad was regular iceberg lettuce and some tomatoes. Tofu and minced pork soup was passable and the best dish of the meal. Fails to offer sticky rice... More

Very good Thai home cooking in simple comfortable setting. The restaurant has several traditional dishes as well as Northern Thai food. Their curry dishes are good. The price is not cheap but I would say it's reasonable to the quality of the food. Some dishes are on smaller side. The service is excellent. Several foreigners visit so the waiters communicate...

We've been coming to this place for years, and it has never disappointed. Try the pork and Thai herb curry, the pomelo salad, some relishes with pork crackling, sausage and veg and anything else that takes your fancy-you can't really go wrong here.

We went for dinner a few nights ago and were fairly underwhelmed. The food is pleasant and the decor is lovely but it just misses the mark somehow. For the price, I feel the dishes should have been more impressive. However, we had the pomelo salad which was lovely. The Khao Soi was okay but we can much better at... More

Well this lovely restaurant understand the farang palate and as most dishes are prepared on the spot , they will make it as Spicy... More
