Had an amazing view on the river surrounded by nature while eating delicious fish&chips and Australian burger.. I especially liked the berry berry fruit shake! Super service, the refill your water as soon as it's almost empty! Definitely a place to visit in Chiang rai!

This place is a little gem in Chiang Rai. From the quaint setting along the river, the friendly staff, and most importantly excellent food. The Eggs Benedict on potato pancakes is one of a kind and the cakes are to die for. Already wanting to go back to try everything on the menu!

Dear jaydesuripa85, Thank you for your wonderful review! Being called "nostalgic" is very nice!! Indeed we have a pretty wide and innovative vegetarian offer and we work hard to improve it as it's very popular. Also we are pretty flexible and almost all dishes on the meny can be made vegetarian, if needed. Thanks again for coming and hope to... More

めちゃくちゃ癒されるカフェです。一人旅で行きましたが、2日間の滞在中、2度訪れてしまったほどです。カオソーイは200thbで、その辺のお店よりは高めですが、本当に美味しかった! コーヒーも本格的で、さすが、スウェーデン人のオーナーさんのお店だな、という感じがします。オーナーさんがとてもかわいいゴールデンレトリバーを飼われているので、あまりお客さんが多くなければ会えるかもしれません。超オススメです。 Super nice place to eat and chill out. My stay in Chiang tai was only 2days, but I went there twice. Khao soi with fried chicken was by far the best one I ever had. And coffee&cakes also fantastic. And top it off, atmosphere and owner/staffs are so nice. Wanna back again for sure.

An absolutely beautiful setting with stunning food and great service. We spent hours mooching here. The pineapple fried rice was gorgeous as was the milk crepe cake and the raspberry lemonade was so good I had to order a second. The place itself is really lovely - all white panels and filled with antique shop finds. By the time we... More

Chivit Thamma Da is filled with love, natural beauty with a wonderful friendly atmosphere; deciding to visit for a uniquely crafted meal, teas, coffee, and cakes, or retreating to the tranquility of the spa is an experience that revitalises and relaxes. The old-style house is nestled in a quiet residential street just upstream from the main bridge over the Kok... More

This is a great little café/restaurant, housed in a wonderful building in lovely surroundings. The food is fresh and delicious, the staff are professional. Top quality European café- and food culture in a Thai setting makes for a truly unique experience! If you are in Chiang Rai, you should definitely visit this place, you will not be disappointed!
