Good food, good price

We ate at Hong Tauw Inn twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. We liked the relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. The food was quite good and the price reasonable.

My mum and I ordered the fried soft shell crab with garlic and the red duck curry with rice and we both feel that it was one of the best meals we've ever had.

We went there for a simple lunch in view of the good review. We have to say we seldom encounter disappointing Thai food in Thailand and this is one of them. We ordered a Khao Soi which is the very basic noodles in Chiangmai, a fried vegetable with fish, a fried Kale with salted fish, a fermented noodles with curry... More

We have visited here in 2006 and 2007. The restaurant is full of old clocks and is bigger at the back of the building, first impression might be quite small. It is fully air-conditioned and only seating inside. Menu in English and Thai. Waitress understood and spoke English. Menu extensive with some Northern Thai dishes. We ordered three dishes a...

Food taste excellent but the portion is rather small. Be prepared to order 2 portion if that dish is your favorite. Very authentic style Thai cooking. Staff are friendly. Love the decor - wall was covered many grandfather clocks.

30-40 min waiting for simple dishes. They were good, but we ate better for lower prices and with quicker service elsewhere.

We went back to this quaint Thai restaurant a few times during our 3 weeks' stay at Chiangmai. Owner's father was a major ice cream manufacturer in Bangkok. Their pistachio and coconut ice cream are top. Mee Krob, a typical Thai dish, is best served here. Of course, they also have mouth watering curry. Price is very reasonable. Owner is... More

After a morning visit to Doi Suthep, we were a bit tired and hungry when arriving at Hong Tauw Inn. Their lunch made me feel awake and utterly happy. The northern style curry is a good recommendation but their mango salad is the best ever.

We ordered a few dishes for sharing. They are rather small in size. Delicious but could be spicier. Love the Khao Soi but the Khao noen jinn was not up to expectation. This is the 1st restaurant where we had our Norther platter, so it has set the benchmark with the Thai sausages. The place can get pretty crowded during... More
