Good Northern taste

This is a great spot to try out some Northern Thai dish. It's a little pricey thou, you could get the same thing at the local market for more than half the price. I went on a Sunday evening just before the walking street, it's near by as well; that's a plus. It was a bit busy during that day,... read more

Excellent spot for cheap northern thai food. Quick, friendly service. Definitely get the Khao Soi, a specialty northern thai curry dish with some sticky rice (curry is only available at lunch). We even tried going back to this place a few times in our short time in Chiang Mai. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I were recommend this restaurant by our driver as we were looking for local Northern Thai cuisine. We were not disappointed! The decor in here is beautiful and it has a lovely atmosphere. The food was good value ranging from 80-150bhat and was very tasty. More than the standard phad Thai that you can get everywhere.

We went there attracted by the great interior decoration and the numerous waiting customers. Finally we made a booking to avoid waiting. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is stunning, the place is crammed with antique objects. However we were really disappointed by the food that was really do so so. The overall cleanliness is also to be improved. At the... More

Just visited the place this evening, needed to wait for a while as there was a queue, asked the waiter about how long needed to wait, which was a fair question in my opinion but met with a glare from him and he put up his hand and told me that he could not tell. One star off. Waited about... More

The draw of this restaurant is that you can sample northern Thai food, which is why I went there. It didn't disappoint. There are plenty of things on the menu that aren't available at other restaurants. The menu is also in English, and my waiter spoke decent English, so it's great for tourists who want to go beyond standard Thai... More

Amazing authentic northern Thai food! I don't think I had better Thai food at any other place my whole trip. Worth your time.

I read about Huen Phen and its authentic Lanna fare on some travel blogs. It is not very difficult to locate, it is very close to Wat Chedi Luang. I reached bit late for lunch, but was lucky they hadn't closed. Thumb rule, went with whatever was recommended by the bloggers. To being with Kanom Jim, the supposed main dish... More
