They Have Done It Again

As I have loved my meals at Spirit House and the excellent service from Steve and his colleagues, they have done it again and created knapchata.com (Spirit Houses). I have stayed at the new resort and it is very peaceful and quiet. You could not ask for a better place to escape the busyness of the... read more

I am afraid the Spirit House in Viangbua has been closed since last June. The later comments surely address another Spirit House.

Thank you for visiting. Spirit House will reopen as a specialty food shop with bar and antique shop. We have been busy with our resort Khapchada's Spirit Houses, just outside of town. The new spirit House restaurant will open there with a food outlet at our in town location. More

I have just returned from a 3 week holiday in Chiang Mai. Our first 2 days were at this wonderful resort. Yes its out of town but you are in the middle of a liitle village surrounded by tropical vegetation and the most beautiful plunge pool. The owners of this beautiful resort cannot do enough for you. Having a couple... More

Nice place to spend an evening with friends in a young atmosphere. I came here with friends I met by accident at another restaurant, and I am happy that this meeting has brought me to know about this place. Thai food is higher than normal, and very affordable prices, the welcoming staff,are friendly and fast. We spent a nice evening,... More

Just thought I should give some of you who may be wanting to try this fantastic place for dinner during your upcoming Chiang Mai holiday a "heads up". The Spirit House has now been open for about nine years now and the fabulous owners have decided to close for the months of March and April for renovations and reinvent a... More

A very nice atmosphere, and the food was good. Now, fortunately for us, since we were seated in outdoor area, one of the employees turned on a fan, aiming towards our table. I thought that kind of odd until I noticed all of the mosquitoes. So beware of the mosquitoes. The food was pretty good, I had a chicken dish,... More

We happened upon this restaurant by chance on our last night in Chiang Mai. The atmosphere was utterly charming (we sat in the garden), the food was absolutely delicious, and the service was wonderful. The owner himself greeted us and made us feel very welcome. I highly recommend!

Great ambiance, tasty food. I ordered the meatloaf (which was tasted great) came with baked potatoes. Arrived with a very tiny bit of a potatoe. Really ridiculous. The staf, except the owner, speak very little English, so every time I asked for something they just kept saying yes... That's all. Besides that tiny small potatoe, good restaurant.

We went there last year and just loved it. The owner was very charming and the food excellent. It's located outside the center, but well worth the trip.
