We had to come back for a late lunch today after eating dinner here last night. Wanted to convince my tastebuds they weren't dreaming over the incredible meal. The Australian beef burger sounds pretty ordinary as far as an entree goes. There was nothing ordinary about this burger. The meat was more like a meatloaf which at first I thought... More

This was the best meal that I had during three weeks in Southeast Asia. The Swedish meatballs were absolutely delicious. The setting at the plantation house is absolutely beautiful. I look forward to visiting again the next time that we are in Chiang Rai.

Dear KootenayGirl72, Thank you for your wonderful compliments and for finding our little place all the way from Canada! I will happily pass on your comments on the Swedish Meat Balls to my father in Gothenburg, it's his old recipe and he also help supply us with the lingonberry jam:) Thanks again and hope to see you soon!

Probably the most expensive place I've been to in Chiang Rai, but affordable with Western exchange rate. Food is delicious, the decor is incredible, service very very good. Closes early though (8pm) which is a shame.

This is a very nice coffee and cake place by the river, we sat outside in the beautiful garden whilst we enjoyed delicious cakes and freshly ground coffee. The kids enjoyed a sandwich, it's a nice place to wile away an hour or two.

This place was a real treat-kind of like an oasis! My wife would probably go there everyday if we lived in Chiang Rai. The building kind of looks like a house you would find in New England.

Had the Coconut Cake and the "Trio" beverage. The cake was very obviously not baked on site. The texture was that of a Twinkie. The taste was ok, but I've found better value elsewhere. The "Trio" drink was some sort of mix between Thai Tea and Coffee. It tasted mostly like Thai Tea. It was decent, but I certainly had... More
