It's the definition of a hidden gem. No one knows about it and still it is highly ranked and rated on TripAdvisor. Low prices and great food are what you will get here. It's a must in Chiang Mai!

I've lived in Chiang Mai for seven years, but hadn't discovered this little gem until a friend down from BKK stayed in the hotel opposite. He'd had lunch there just after he arrived and suggested it for our evening meal. Knowing the local eateries in the Old City main tourist drag and avoiding them for years, I was simply amazed...

We came here purely on the recommendation from trip advisor reviews, if you're looking for a nice quiet, cheap and excellent quality evening meal then this is the place to go. The quality and flavour of the food was fantastic, you can get all the dishes you expect to see cooked to a high standard, and drinks are very reasonably... More

We had a delicious meal at this little restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor. The service was friendly and the food was fresh and delicious. The green papaya salad was particularly tasty as mentioned in previous reviews. The food was very reasonably priced and we would certainly recommend this restaurant for a traditional thai meal.

It would be easy to walk past this little restaurant unaware of the delicious food within its simple clean decor. Curried soft shell crab was amazing and the tom yum soup flavour to the max all plates returned to the kitchen empty. The Spoon de Best cocktail was yummy and so reasonably priced as was all the food, husband couldn't... More

Found this place in the southern part of the Old Town near chiang mai gate. The waiters are really friendly, the place is clean and has a nice ambiance with many foreign visitors. We tried the papaya salad and the grilled pork salad. Each plate tasted delicious and looked very tasty. Definitely a place to recommend!

This place is amazing. The western food is like that of a 5 star restaurant in the West. A must visit. I go very often.
