We had a hoot of a time at the Good View Bar. There's a great mix of young Thai college students and travellers alike. Great live music with DJ's during the breaks. Fun, alive atmosphere, ice cold chang with ice. A fun night out!

Staying with friends in Chiang Mai, we came for dinner. Locals seem to like it, and the live band, and it was busy, so service a bit forced -waitress standing behind me tapping her pen while we chose from a very extensive menu. Food expensive for what it was. We've had much better at less cost elsewhere

Great place to spend a night with some friends. 2 different bands in 3 hrs, great service and a big selection for meat lovers. A small selection of vegetarian food is available too.

This restaurant was lovely all round. The food was delicious and plentiful, the service was good and the view was gorgeous over the river. The restaurant is huge and we were lucky enough to sit right on the waterfront. We went for our last night in Chiang Mai but if have definitely gone again if there was the time to!

The staffs in our hotel suggest this bar and restaurant. The place their is very nice with the view of the big river. The food is so good with the reasonable price. It is a little bit slow service, but I understand because there're a lot of people. After our big meal, we still enjoy drinking a bit. The song... More

Sprawling Restaurant with average food that is popular with locals. We did not find the food particularly exciting although they do have a decent menu. The band was quite good and hugely entertaining. I understand they have karaoke rooms too!

It took forever for us to get service, and when we did it wasnt friendly or welcoming. the food was western style thai food and not very authentic if you ask me. I heard really good things about this place before but it seems they are now focused on being the
