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

My husband and I visited this place one evening after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we were not disappointed. The menu is extensive, the portions decent and at a very good price. Just be prepared to be a little patient fir your food, but its worth it :-)

Try the pomelo salad! Many interesting dishes, like the panaeng with coconut hearts e.g. but that salad was absolutely superb.

This place is a gem. I really loved the atmosphere, and the food was delicious. The service was also excellent -- best I had in Thailand. The menu was extensive, and I wish I could have gone back to try many more of their dishes, but alas I discovered it on my last night in Chiang Mai. I also felt... More

Loved the decor - old lamps, ceramics, clocks - reminded me of a house in the old quarter of Hong Kong; lunch was delicious and dessert was the best homemade green tea ice cream ever! A totally unique place to eat from another time.

Stopped by on a whim. Reasonably old decor inside but cosy enough. Food was a little above average but not great. My partner had papaya salad and even though she has a high chilli tolerance was overcome by the potency of the chilli in her salad. She felt quite ill for some time after so beware.

EXPERIMENT - On top of what everyone is saying, I recommend trying some of the less common dishes on top of some classics. No everyone liked them, but they were for sure an experience I have not had before. Recommend the Thai pickles. FAMILIES - you can ask all dishes to be made spice free for kids
