A dining treasure in Chiang Rai

We visited this place for a coffee as it is close to our hotel. After not nearly finding it we were astonished once we entered. For a place only 2+ years old it looked amazing. Located along the riverside the greenery running through the place made me think I was in an English garden. The coffee... read more

Without question the best of the many coffee houses in the city of Chiang Rai no doubt about it! Great food, well trained staff with a wonderful restaurant atmosphere situated on the banks of the Kok River. It's more than just another "Coffee House" in the city.

What a gem. I feel like I am by the river in France. I enjoyed a refreshing frappe, my husband enjoyed a vintage beer. The furniture and antiques, gentle background music, fountain, piano, gently running river, greenery and breeze gently blowing. Just lovely!

Chivit offers gorgeous Thai cusine in a quintessentially Cath Kidson style/English country garden setting. Wonderful attentive staff serve in style-the garden and surrounding are very relaxing. Set alongside the Mekhong river diners who wish to eat outside are offered mozzy spray - we visited on two separate occasions and were delighted on both occasions. One not to miss if you... More

Chivit Thamma Da was a 5 minute walk from our hotel and we ate here a couple of times. The cakes are delicious, the staff are really friendly and the location down by the river is beautiful. It is a long way out of town, so unless you're in the Imperial Hotel, you'll need transport.

We had an easy afternoon break here. The place is beautiful, service is good. Banoffee, lemon cheese cake tasted just right. The mixed fruit drink (lychee, guava, and rose petal smoothie) is great for a hot afternoon.

Ambience galore. Outside garden setting beside Kok River. Large menu mostly American and Euro fare Service fine. Food is very good especially the fries. A relaxed and refined Restaurant. It is a mistake just to call it a café since the menu is a restaurant menu.
