be ready to handle swarms of (young) foreigners and loud dance music

The first time I entered Coconut's was because they had free pool (and there wasn't a swarm of ladies out front). The pool table is free, so it's a little used. This was in the afternoon. Fast forward to another evening (a Friday night) and you will see a handful (30-40) twenty-somethings crowding... read more

I spoke with the owner on the way in who recommended their roast. Feeling not that hungry I opted for a BLT instead. The chef apparently forgot to toast the bread making it a pretty mushy endeavor for which the owner later apologized. If you do go, I'd advise going for whatever is their special that night.

Good vibe at night. one of the busier bars on the strip (although was here in off season so strip was generally quiet). The full english is a breakfast of champions. proper english break complete with baked beans and sausage and egg and....oh don't get me started, i might go and have another

Apologies for the late review (and perhaps things have improved in the meantime) but we have been travelling around SE Asia and are only now catching up with our restaurant and other reviews. We first visited Coconuts Bar in January 2011 immediately after arriving from Bangkok as it was the only place open near to our guest house at 2pm.... More

As a very regular customer for Coconuts on Jet Yod Rd for 2.5 years I can highly recommend it for a meal, drink and live music. Service, friendliness and staff attentiveness are also at a premium. In a town with a dearth of non-Thai food options it has a wide range of such at very reasonable prices. My favourites include... More

Reading other reviews, I'm most surprised to see a couple of negative ones. My golfing mates who live in Chiang mai often come here when in town & speak very highly. Chiang rai for years has struggled with good food, but Coconut bar is definitely the exception! I had roast chicken dinner 1 night & was really pleased. 185bt as... More

Nice little bar in Jet Rot road. Inexpensive food and drink. They do a good variety of food but Kevin the landlord specializes in Indian food and has got a good reputation with the locals.

Three holidays in Chiang Rai last year with a lot of it spent here. Like the rest of Jet Yod Rd, how busy it is depends on time of year/ weather etc. If you're a solo traveller, with friends or a couple you always get a friendly welcome and the Indian, Thai and English food is all nice. Don't understand... More

This place was okay. I chose it as a fun place based on other t.a. reviews. The food was so-so, the atmoshere bland and unless you want to watch an obscure sports channel or play pool, give it a miss
