Family run restaurant serving authentic northern Thai cuisine. Friendly waitress didn't speak a word of English but, that didn't matter, she helped us work our way through the menu. We had the fat pork,, and spicy sausage as well as other dishes. They even found some wine for my non beer drinking missus. Quite a few locals eating there. It... More

Famous local restaurant serving typical Northern Thai food frequented mostly by Thai. Reasonable price for which foreign visitor should sample. Even though staff are not well verse in English but there are pictures in the menu. Other Thai will always help in selecting the food. Simple decoration and service are quite reasonably fast.

Good food delivered quickly but few of the staff spoke english and some of the order was wrong. It was strongly recommended by our hotel staff; was good but did not live upto expectations.

If you like Asian food, you should love this place. If you're not accustomed to Asian food, it might take a bit of time. ;-) We were recommend this restaurant by our hotel receptionists as the best Thai restaurant in town. Try the Thai sausage! as well as the more mainstream Asian dishes. Nicely air-conditioned, bathroom could be improved but... More
