“Delicious Food - TWICE!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Ate here twice during my 5 night stay in Chiang Rai on the recommendation of my hotel (The Legend).

First time on October 29, 2013 and it was AMAZING!
Started w/ the Northern Thai style spare ribs and had the medium hot Green Curry for my main entree. Flavors were excellent & medium hot was just at the edge of my heat tolerance. Singha beer helped take the edge off, as did the ice cream for dessert.

Staff was very friendly but seemed inexperienced in dealing with non-Thai diners, which seemed odd because the menu did have accurate English translation which we found extremely helpful (my friend and I were the only Western diners that evening).

Second meal was on November 1, 2013 and again food was excellent and prices were a bargain. Staff still seemed perplexed, though the manager(?) did recognize us from our previous dinner a few days before and helped us through the ordering process.

A quick cab ride from hotel and would highly recommend this restaurant for a slice of REAL Northern Thai dining to those visiting Chiang Rai.

“Excellent northern Thai cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

The meal was delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful and it was a great evening. We wanted to sit in the garden, but the rain forced us inside. There was a very large number of choices to pick from and all were great. The frog legs were finger lickin' good!

“great find in Chiang Rai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

From other reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to give this place a try.

They have indoor seating and a very pretty garden with a low key fountain that competes with traffic noise from the nearby street. We chose to sit in the garden, armed with lots of high DEET mosquito repellant.

All our dishes were good and especially outstanding were:
the chili dipping sauce that came with the Grilled Spare Ribs Northern Style
the Tom Yum Salungkam--perfect balance of hot and sour, the best we've ever had, anywhere
the Traditional Thai Red Curry with Shrimp Basil Leaf and Palm Heart in Coconut Milk

Not as fab but still good were the Grilled Spare Ribs and the Stir Fried Shrimp with Tomato, Pineapple in Sweet and Sour Sauce.

Intrigued by Coconut Milk with Mixed Thai's dessert, we couldn't resist ordering a portion. It was coconut ice cream with bits of ? in it. Tasty but not outstanding.

Highly recommend this place despite the somewhat inattentive service, the teeny napkins (typical in Thailand) an plastic dinner ware. Definitely not fancy though it could be if they just used finer dishes etc. And I think they should because to food is mostly very exceptional.

It's fun to peek into the kitchen which is on the way to the decent washrooms.
