Delicious Chinese Thai food

Visited Chiang Rai for one day, and found this restaurant in the corner of our alley street. Looks ordinary restaurant but seen some feedback from internet, we decided to try. There's common Chinese and Thai food, and you can ask for the menu. Price is relatively cheap (~ 2-4 USD/person) and... read more

This family run restaurant offers the most friendly service we experienced in Thailand! The food tastes great, the vegetables are all fresh. It is a great place to enjoy your evenings in Chiang Rai and get in contact with locals and travelers. Definitely worth a visit!!

Visited Muang Thong at midnight after umpteen beers at Cat Bar. You cannot miss this large and basic eating joint at the junction of Sanpanard Rd. and Phaholyothin Rd. Seemed to be a local favorite, and a relief to have a 24/7 option in an otherwise slept town. Tried only their Pork Fried Rice and loved it. Would surely visit... More

From the outside it looks like every ordinary Asian restaurant with an explosion of TL based light. But this restaurant is a diamond. It seems to be run by a family (grandparents, parents, children, etc.) and it feels like sitting in the family's living room (big television). Besides a lot of locals 'visiting' the family with is a good sign.... More

We stayed at Baan Malai and so this restaurant is very accessible to us at the junction. It is advertised as a 24 hr restaurant and it seems to be very popular with the tourist and locals. The food tastes quite average but it is very reasonable in terms of price. There is a big television here where one can... More

This is a crossover of Thai and Chinese flavours right on Phaholyothin Rd. in central Chiang Rai. The place was always full after 6-7pm and you might have to wait for a table, as it's very popular with locals and tourists alike. The place itself is simple, sporting a typical "grandma"-like atmosphere with old ladies, husbands and and children serving... More

The cheap food (<100B) is bang average, while the recommended stuff that gives this place it's good reputation is all over 200B. We were really disappointed.

Good restaurant with typical northern thai food. Be careful most of the dishes are spicy, precise if you don't want them to be. The is no ambience, it's not a place to spend an evening, but to have a tasty diner. Bon appétit!

We hadn't read TA reviews or we might have been put off from going here. It is at the corner of the soi to our guest house and we saw it was busy with locals at breakfast and dinner times. We visited around 6.30 and the place was nearly full at 7pm. We had chicken, dry chilli and cashews (lge)... More
