Very lucky that we stumbled over this place at the river side. Managed to get at table in the far end of the restaurant as there is a live band performing in the bar area. Very good Thai food a reasonable cost and a surprisingly good selection of wines at affordable cost. Friendly staff and good and quick service. First... More

The restaurant is situated on the riverside and as the name suggests, offers a good view. We visited on a Friday evening and the place was so busy, mainly with locals. Usually we follow the idea of 'eat where the locals eat', however we were disappointed and not impressed. We found the service to be slow, the food was bland... More

An extremely popular restaurant and bar with local Thai personnel. Has seating both inside and outside and there is a good band playing. It is a fun place and is great value. Went there twice and will return again this year.

Move over Bangkok, KL, you have nothing like this Bar. Found it accidentally. Thurs night: live band, awesome bar snacks, busy with 20yo something's, reasonably priced drinks - eg cocktails,$7Aus. What can I say? Even looks like you can bring in spirits from outside 700ml bottes, pay a corkage and mixers. Amazing what some Coke sponsorship does at the right... More

Always love to dine here whenever I visit Chiang Mai. Food is great and priced reasonably. Some of the local cocktails are very nice, too. The atmosphere is great, just beside the Ping river. Enjoyed the live band as well but don't sit too close to the stage as it can get pretty loud.

Food is not bad but not so good. Too much flyer flying everwhere. Ordered hot water and need to pay, but it is not distill water and water coloured yellow. The cokor like the river water.

Atmosphere here is pretty good but not as romantic as to compare to a few other restaurant nearby. However the band here makes us feel casual and lively, we enjoy the songs and music very much! Food here is nice, some dishes are nice some are not. Price is very reasonable. Mocktails is great, if you park your vehicle opposite... More

Not quite what we'd been expecting, which was a calm, relaxing place with good Thai food and a nice river view. We'll to be honest there's not much to look at on the Ping River but anyway...! The Thai food we ordered was very, very average, cocktails weak in alcohol and the service felt a bit like being at McDonalds.... More

It was a fun evening with good food and nice music. Food is good to enjoy with beer and loud music. But don't go when it rains. The restaurant is not set up to prevent you from getting wet. Then it becomes not so enjoyable.

This place is mostly frequented by midddle to upper middle class thai customers. It gets very busy after 7 pm and gets really loud due to the live band. If you do not like the loud music they have 3 other thai restaraunts on the same strip minus the noise. I preffered the food here to the other joints. The... More
