5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Nic's is a great place, so happy to have discovered it. I've been here 10-12 times already sometimes alone or with friends, sometimes with my wife and children. Harry & Sylvia and their staff do a great job!!! Incredibly friendly!! The menu is straightforward but all the food I've tried has been good, pizzas, salad, spare ribs, chicken, tapas esp their meatballs and fish fingers!! I love their juices, fresh apple, pineapple and ginger always zings me to life....
My children love the playground and love coming here, the quid pro quo is they must finish their food!!! The tree house is exciting and the swings and climbing up to the ship's crows nest gives them pleasure, they have fun with all the other children.
But if children bother you, don't worry, you can come here and you'll hardly notice them unless you sit at the rear of the restaurant.

This is a commendable addition to CM's restaurant scene. Great job, Harry, Sylvia and Nic!!!!

“Great Fun, Good Food, Service Needs Improving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Nic's has an awesome bamboo boat play area for young children to climb on and explore, so it's a great place to go to let your children run around. The food is tasty and well presented; however, every time I go there, I feel like I have to fight to get the attention of wait staff. If they can improve their wait staff's ability to recognize customers' needs, this place would be perfect. I would go more if I didn't dread the poor service.

“Would do it again in a heartbeat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had about 30 people in our group, so we called ahead. They asked good questions to help set things up before we got there. Upon entering the restaurant, the the kids (both young and old) were thrilled by the playground with it's bamboo ship as the center piece. The owner came out to set up things for the kids and even while she was busy, she engaged us in a friendly conversation. We felt like we were coming over to a friend's house for dinner. The restaurant got busy, but we still had good service and continual conversations with the owners. Food was good, and everyone in our party left satisfied. All of us would love to do it again!

“Our 12th wedding anniversary party at Nic's!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Living for more then 15 years in Chiang Mai, we were happy to finally find a restaurant with a proper playground for our 3 kids and what a bonus ; such a GOOD food ! After our first visit, we were so happy that we decided to do our 12th wedding anniversary in this restaurant. A few mails and they made it all happen for us ! The kids could play, the adults could enjoy lovely food, everybody would be happy ! AND THEY gave us MORE then we expected ! We came in (a little later then we propmised) and OH what were the tables beautifull decorated with flower leaves ! The owner jumped on us with flowers and taking pictures, what a lovely welcome ! The kids could play rightaway and we could welcome our guests, our Thai family and friends and farang friends! Tables looked great, all orders came on the perfect time, they did all what we asked for and you could see that a big effort was done for us ! A big thank you ! On top lovely home made cakes and you could see only smiling people (Thai aswell farang) going home ! Thank you for making this day even more special for us and we will recommand it to all our friends ! Of course we will come back for sure !

“Great playground but...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Kids really enjoyed the playground but service and food were a bit disappointing. Various items on our order were forgotten, food came out at varying times, adult food came out before kids food (although we specifically ordered kids' food first...) Quantities were small for price of food, menu was more like a lunch menu than a dinner menu so we left a bit hungry. Also very difficult to get a taxi back to our hotel - as a tourist you really need to arrange transport to and from. Maybe a good place to go to if you live in Chiang Mai and are just looking for a coffee and snack outing for the kids to play, but not worth the trek from our hotel.

Thanks for your review and we still remember you as guests.
You are right, it is very difficult to get a Taxi back to town, but this is a generall Problem in Chiang Mai or in Thailand - TAXI!!!
About your food-concern I must say we have a wide range of Tapas, Pasta, Pizza, Steaks, Salads and it depends on you, how much food you order for a big family.
I still remember that our service forgot to give half of your oder to the kitchen and that was the reason why the Kids food came last, but we also apologized and took all the food that came late off the bill. you seemed o.k. with that.
Anyway we just opened 4 month ago and we try to do our best but nobody is perfect and sometimes things like this happens... but thanks for your point of fiew. All the best to you and your family.
