“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Visited this restaurant after reading the reviews on here but we were disappointed. We ordered the Thai red curry with shrimps, we only got 3 shrimps & they had bigger tails than body's!! Overall the food was very bland & not much meat in the dishes. Would recommend going to the main 'tourist' restaurant with the wooden chairs in the night bazaar, it's much better!

“Very good and affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

In my trip through Thailand me and a friend of mine crossed Chiang Rai and checked Tripadvisor for a place to eat.The Lounge came up. A good place with an excellent atmosphere. A place worthy to stop by and have a drink for example.

It suited me as a young traveller, due the costs and the cosy time being. You should go here!

“Delish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

The Lounge was kind enough to open close to an hour early for us and served very good hashbrowns and eggs as well as pad Thai. Friendly service and atmosphere. Definitely should go for at least one meal!

I came here with three other people and all of our food was excellent. I got green curry that was to die for! The owner is attentive and knowledgeable about Chiang Rai. A hit.

“a good reason to come to chiang rai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Even though we didn't find the city of Chiang Rai very attractive, the Lounge made our trip up here well worth it! we were searching for a place to eat and walked past this restaurant which looked cozy and authentic. we didn't go wrong and ended up eating here the 2 nights we spent in Chiang Rai. the green curry is amazing, and so are the other 3 dishes we tried. the owners are super nice and the prices are honest. definitely the best restaurant we have been to during our trip to Thailand so far! thanks!
