Hinlay is one of CM's best all around restaurants and certainly makes the best curry. Roti murtabaak is also outstanding. I've never had a negative Hinlay experience, and I've probably gone 30-40 times.

Had a personal tour of the cottage for rent in the lush garden. Very fresh mango lassi in the hot humid summer. Enjoyed the fish masala most with the crispy garlic naan. Chicken tikka, beef rendang & dahl complimented the meal well. Chewy coffee brownie with ice cream wrapped up the evening perfectly!

The Hinlay Curry House is located in a quiet street in close proximity to the main attractions in Chain Mai. The meals are freshly prepared and taste great. The prices are amazingly reasonable, and the host, Kate, is just fantastic in helping new comers select an appropriate dish, as well as providing useful information about the local area. A great...

I eat here when I want a treat. I love Indian food. The owners and staff are wonderful as well. The atmosphere is sweet and location in the old section of Chiang Mai (not the old city) has the sounds of birds and large trees so you don't really feel like you are in the city. I recommend you visit.

Tucked away in a backstreet soi the Hinlay Curry House is quiet and secluded. The menu isn't extensive, it doesn't need to be the food is so good. The breads are perfection and I am a sucker for the korma and smoothies. Well worth taking the time to find.

Tucked away in a quiet street next to the Sakorn Residence just one street back from the riverside is this gem of a curry house. The atmosphere is so relaxing and pleasant as are the staff. The food is delicious and surprisingly cheap. It was so good, we dined here a few times!

A great restaurant in a brilliant location, with very good service. The menu is as the name suggests one typically found in a curry house, though I found the curries to be quite tame. It is very much targeted at the local expat Community. In a nutshell "Westernised curry." say no more.

It wasn't the best Indian food I've had but it was good. The atmosphere was nice insdie but the wines on offer were quite expensive for what they were but you don't have to order them. Nothing spectacular but I guess you cannot expect excellent Indian cuisine in Thailand, that's for sure. The homemade dessert was very good!!!
