“Worst service in Chiang Mai”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is a big restaurant - in the evenings they have a live band. If you want to sit by the river you will need reservations or come really early. They have VERY limited seating by the river though. We were sat by the kitchen, so we thought that our food would arrive in a timely fashion. We were wrong. It took 30 minutes for the food to arrive, and they brought the appetizers last for some reason. Also forgot the rice, until we had to remind them 3-4 times.

Food is pretty average and overpriced. We ordered the shrimp with tamarind sauce and the shrimps were tiny - they had sliced them and left the shells & head on to make them look bigger.

Don't bother with this place. There are also hookers and ladyboys that loiter around outside and in the bar area. Doesn't make for a great atmosphere.

“Terrible service!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

I'm writing this review while i'm still at this restaurant, first and the only impression we get is: TERRIBLE SERVICE!!

we came during lunch time, there's only another table occupied so all the staffs are availble but no one greet us at all, we find our own table and a waitre comes to take the order with the -not in the mood for serving guest- face.

I try to order by pointing at the food picture, he doesn't even bother to look at it and just asks: what number (in the menu), crazy!!!
I order plum juice and ask for no sugar, he just reply with 2 words: include already

We lost our appetite totally.,., but try not to be too rude, we still stay to have our lunch :(

“Good Food, Good Vibe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Chilled out atmosphere beside the Ping River with decent local bands to entertain mainly playing rock style music in the evenings. Food served is Thai but European dishes are available also and prices are reasonable. Clientele is a mixture of Thai and Europeans but normally more Thai's.One of the top spots for people who live here in Chiang Mai.
