Only one Wanlamun!

I telephoned Wanlamun today to ask Nimman address and was told they now have only one restaurant - at Central Festival. We had lunch there last week and will definitely return. Very interesting food, beautifully presented in peaceful environment.

Currently, one branch is in Central Festival Chiang Mai 2/F (WanLamun) while another one is in Nimman (Wanlamun at Nimman).

We went to W as recommended by our Thai cooking teacher. We would never have gone otherwise; it is situated in the Central Festival mall (floor 2). We are critical foodies and would NEVER go to a touristy place. That being said, W is anything but tourist food. Clean, bright, well decorated, modern restaurant ambiance. The dishes are VERY clean... More

My wife and I have been to W by Wanlamun several times now, sometimes together with friends as well or, like recently, together with my family, celebrating my latest birthday there and being eight eaters gathering round the table. All of us loved to be there for lunch and enjoyed Wanlamun's high quality food and the dinnerware as well. Excellent... More

Was recommended by our host at BaanNamPing. This was our first meal outside of our hotel & we were very impressed with their service & food. Despite the Tatler recognition, this place is very affordable. If you are planning a small wedding, W by Wanlamun would be a good choice. Dessert, don't miss the desserts.

Heard about this place via a friend. No trouble to find via Google maps. The food was simply outstanding, the atmosphere charming and the service first rate. Don't let the hidden nature of the restaurant put you off. Use technology and you won't be disappointed.

Amazing place in Chiang Mai off the main area. You'll find this place while walking to the local market of Warorot (also recommend). The atmosphere is high-end but you can dress casually while eating in a lovely outdoor garden or inside. The staff are very friendly and knowledgable about the food. The presentation was AMAZING. This was one of the... More

There's another Wanlamun listing for Chiang Mai supposedly near Nimman -- but I never found it. And I would never have found this little gem were it not for the help of a long-time resident.... so perhaps it's a well-kept secret among the Thai upper-class? This one takes some effort to find -- it is off of Chang Moi Rd... More
