Excellent restaurant, great food and wide selection. Prices are reasonable. Smoking corner at the water, beautiful surrounding - great location. The worst pint are the opening hours. 8 pm and the restaurant is going to close the doors, the kitchen shut down 7 pm if I remember right. Anyway, I definitely come back

Lunch here is simply a wonderful experience and so affordable.We sat overlooking the river with all it's comings and goings and enjoyed great coffee followed by a really great lunch.

This is one of the restaurant that you must visit when you are in Chiang Rai. Colonial English decor style with real antique furniture located along Mae Kok river bank, you can find yourself lost in time and enjoy a nice relaxing view while having a delicious meal.

Everything tasted great. You get greeted with smiles when you first arrived and the service is great. The pineapple fried rice and Banoffee cake is a must try! Don't miss out on the spa they have there as well.

When you have to wait for a seat outside,you realize why his coffee shop is one of the most popular places in Chiangrai. The selection is superb and the drinks, coffee and cakes are quite unique in their presentation. Parking can be a problem however it is definitely worth a visit before you leave Chiangrai.

A very nice place to hang out ... In our case while waiting for the time to go to the airport. Indoors there are not many tables and , in fact , sitting outdoors is much nicer. View of the Kok Ricer. But the day we visited, the temperature was about 15 degrees and it was quite windy at 5pm.... More

This restaurant has location and it has atmosphere. It is a great place to just be. But more important, not only are the food and drinks great (the Orange Duck was super!), the staff are really friendly and the owner is always around chatting to the guests. The place is built and run with love.
