So, did we come for dinner or the view? It seems that reputation sometimes exceeds reality. Yes, no question about ambiance and view. However, we came to dine. The overpriced dinner was average at best. It was a game of Find The Chicken in the sweet green curry with chicken (Geeng Khiaw Waan Gai). The warm white wine was a... More

Palaad Tawanron is a beautiful spot; they have a small waterfall and a lake, and you can see Chiang Mai at a distance. However it's a restaurant, not a view point - but it has no airconditioning, the service is just acceptable, the food is good, but overpriced: our lunch - four dishes and water - was 1200 Baht. There's... More

Food is overpriced for quality. Service ok. Fantastic location which just about compensates.worth it if you're not a struggling backpacker.have to take a taxi as tuk tuk will not make it up the hill.

Yes it is the view that draws people to this place. I visited with some Thai friends who were very excited to show me one of their special places. The view was really something, especially as the lights came on but I enjoyed the food too. I loved the pork knuckle and the other dishes were really tasty too. My... More

Was there few years ago and this time went back to try again, taste for other dishes were OK but the Thai Pork Knuckle too hard and dry, quite disappointed with this dish.

Went to this restaurant after reading some reviews - I am a regular visitor to Chiang Mai and have never been here. I have a car so finding the restaurant with the help of a map was ok and parking good. We were a party of four two English and two Thai. We were shown to a table outside with... More

This place is cool. Rather far out of the city, but seemed sort of a special place for locals to come with family. It has an excellent food and some roaming musicians. The food portions are large which make sharing between 2 difficult when you want to try a lot of different dishes. There was nothing particularly wow about the... More

Lovely view over lake and chiang mai. Seafood papaya salad, pork rinds and pork curry were very good.

We, too, based our visit here on the glowing recommendation in Lonely Planet, which admittedly, is now a good 2 years out of date. We should have looked here on Trip Advisor first, but our access to internet was spotty. As others have said, the view and dining areas are lovely, overlooking a lake and the city of Chiang Mai....
