This place is worth its good reviews, first of all due to the good location and the very friendly and attentive waiters and secondly as there aren't that many other great restaurants in this town.. Or maybe I'm mistaken, God knows. Thing is though that tourism isn't really at its best nowadays in MHS, yet at Salween it's almost always... More

Salaween was a nice surprise. Listed here as a vegetarian place they had aful menu of veg and non veg selections. We stopped for lunch and tried a few of their Shan dishes. Service was great and the food was very good. I can't speak for the thai or western selections. But the Shan cooking was great. Laphet; Shan tea... More

Try the Shan and Burmese items! The green tea salad is fabulous and so are the potatoe cakes! The Burmese food is mild compared to the spicy Thai food but everything is delicious!

Had breakfast here and everything spot on. Fresh brewed locally grown coffee, delicious omelet stuffed with tasty treats and best of all - their home made toasted bread. A superb start to the day. They also do evening meals which look great although I didnt try it. A cosy little place next to the lake in centre of town with... More

We wanted to end the year at a special place in Mae Hong Son and chose Salween River Restaurant near the central lake with its stunning vistas. While most of the city was quiet on new year's eve, this area was bustling with holiday crowds. However.... even though I can't say I've had extensive experience with Burmese or Shan food,... More

We ate lunch here after reading the positive reviews on TA, and we were not disappointed! I had khao soi, a tasty northern curry noodle dish, and tried the Burmese tea leaf salad. Both were delicious. My husband's chicken green bean dish was also tasty. The restaurant was not particularly crowded and our food appeared promptly. We have two days... More

Ate here lunch and dinner every night we were in the town. Simply amazing service (although they are understaffed!) food was perfect; BLT, Thai Green curry, Fries, Fried rice, pancakes, etc. etc. Their Burmese Tea Salad - well - try it - unique and sooooo tasty. Western or Thai food. Prices low - we spent around 250/350 for a dinner... More

We stayed in Mae Hong Son two nights, on a sunflower-view tour through the province. In our hotel we asked for the way to drive to the Salween, and the lady got excited: this is the best place to eat in Mae Hong Son! And she was right! The choice is wide, including western food, but we went for Thai.... More

We ate twice a day and weren't the only ones. Really good food and the sweetest staff. Eat here once and I'm sure you'll be back twice a day too. We'd definitely go back.
