Picturesque in it's little garden. A little pricier than other establishments in the area but the food was very good.

Really nice restaurant in a nicely decorated building. Found the value for money really good - loved the green curry. Service is not fantastic, but the food is awesome and the ambiance is very nice. We tried many different things from the menu - all was very good. As per local custom, they make you take off your shoes, but... More

Drawn to this restaurant by fellow trip advisors reviews, I can see why others have given higher star ratings than me. But, this is Chiang Mai, not Los Angeles, Atlanta or New York, and I expect certain things when dining out here. This is worthy of a 4 star rating for food and property, but gets dinged based on price... More

This is a lovely Thai building in a nice garden of a busy street. They instruct you to take your shoes off before going upstairs (it would be so much nicer if the explained that this is the custom instead of just being very curt about it). Excellent grilled shrimp. Good Thai vegetable curry/soup (no coconut milk). Dahl was very... More

Good location and ambience. We tried Thai and Indian food. The Thai food was nice. The service is average as it takes a long time for the food to be served. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes to suit people from varied countries.

It is centrally located near night markets. It had both indoor and outdoor sitting with a nice garden. We chose outdoor balcony since we were in a big group. Most of us were veg and we felt the food was very average. They had a lot of Indian dishes also but it was tasting like thai food.

This restaurant is located near the night markets and is in an old house set in lovely gardens. There is outside balcony dining and insides Dining as well, all upstairs ( leave your shoes downstairs ). For the price of nearly thb 2000 for a family of four I don't actually think it was all that great. I felt like... More

The Whole Earth is a nice retaurant , we sat on the balcony with a nice view on the garden. The Thai food (we had chosen several Thai appetizers and main courses to share amongst the 4 of us) was rather average , nothing special. The service was just OK , not what you usually get in Thailand.

Fantastic food. Neither super cheap nor fine dining - just fresh, fragrant, beautifully prepared deliciousness on a plate. I could happily have eaten here every day we were in Chiang Mai... only curiosity and an abundance of good dining options led me to eat elsewhere. Plenty of great vego options too. If we return to Chiang Mai, and I hope... More
