This is a massive restaurant, along the river's edge. Enjoyed watching people let off sky lanterns outside. The food was good: pomelo salad included a deep-fried fish, bbq prawns were tasty and fresh, okra masala was good too.

The River Market is in a great location and has excellent food. We were there for Loy Katrong and had a great time. The River Market is also a terrific location for a party or special occasion dinner.

I took my wife and friends to the River Market for my wife's birthday last year and we were very pleased. Last night we went with friends for the annual fall lantern festival called Loi Krathan. And that was a very memorable experience. Open Buffet, Open Bar, Live Band, Traditional Thai dancers, Lantern lighting and 300 meters from where the... More

We spent the evening here in September and it was a great experience. We were lucky enough to be seated facing the river and while enjoying a cocktail and some lovely food we watched the light come on on the bridge, saw children fishing and finished off the night by letting go of a large lantern for the very reasonable...

The lamb kebab here is something to die for ... cooked to a juicy perfection, with tiny roast potatoes and veg which would do a French chef proud ... And the Thai dishes were done so well. And the prices? Mid-range when other less notable restaurants in the city charge more. We took along an opened bottle of wine -... More

The owner, Pin gave me personalized service. She was very kind and gave the history of the structure. She and her husband own several Dukes restaurants in the area. This one is classic Thai w/fusion added for some dishes. Impressive building, very large and comfortable. You can see the Iron Bridge and its multiple lights from your table.

A highlight of our four days in Chiang Mai, we went twice! Lovely spot for a relaxing lunch or dinner by the Mae Peng River. Breezy open air restaurant serving Thai fusion, with some great western options. Children are able to run on the well kept lawn which is high enough above the riverside to be safe. Drinks were perfectly... More

We loved this restaurant that we had lunch and dinner on the same day! The night time ambience is beautiful. The lanterns are a bonus at 100baht each. The old teak building is just gorgeous. The food is really good. I cannot wait to go back for a few more meals.
