Fabulous French Food

La Fourchette gets our award for the best French restaurant, and certainly one of the best restaurant, in Chiang Mai. They have perfectly combined a lovely room, very good food, equally good service, an owner who cares, a large selection from which to choose all at a very fair price. Whether it is... read more

This restaurant is definitely a cut above the normal in Chiang Mai. You have to look a little harder to find it but when you do it is worth the effort. The chef is the son of a former 5 star French chef whose clientele included Thai Royalty. His son carries on the tradition of his father by serving wonderful... More

A nice change from Thai food. The service can be a bit hit and miss, some of the young staff seem a bit inexperienced but friendly. There was little change in the menu although there were a couple of specials. The portions are good and we enjoyed our meal except I was a little disappointed in my Chicken Tarragon -... More

If you love thai food, like we do, and have travelled around in Thailand, and feel like you need a change, this is the best place to go. We think this beats most restaurants in France! And the price is really low! Very good quality food for very little money! Merci beaucoup!

This is a very good restaurant serving French style food in an excellent setting with both inside and outside dining . Very attentive service with proprietor taking orders and keeping a watchful eye on things. Definitely worth a visit and some excellent prices.

The Charm, the service and the personal attention of the Proprietor, is absolutely wonderful, as several friends has told me this could be among the best French Restaurants in Asia. I personally never miss visiting this restaurant when in Chiang Mai. Often I write about the different dishes when making a review, but in La Fourchette every dish is top... More

Very good little restaurant with French owner it appears as he came and said hello and made recommendations. I had the onion soup with cheese and duck for main both were very tasty, serving size good and had no room for desert unfortunately. I shall return to this restaurant as I would love to return to Chaing Mai one day.

Located in city center. We wanted AC, so they offered us a private upstairs dining area. Authentic French food. They brought us a complimentary bite to start the meal and the perfect little dessert for free at the end. Chef came to the table several times. Service was great. Food was excellent. Nice break from Thai food.

Is beef stroganoff French ? Nope. But was actually very tasty & well done. My brothers starter of Marrow on croutons was terrible & his duck uncooked & bland. But the chocolate truffles & apple tart were great. Nice cutesy homely decor & staff.
