Great improvement.
Jan 2020
Unlike a lot of other reviewers, we still find this mall rather appealing. To many people are ready to write it off without giving it time to upgrade itself. Improvements are being made and it is looking far more inviting. The food court in the basement next to Tops Supermarket is complete and looks far more modern, with new food stalls, coffee shops and seating area. Floors above have also had some redecoration, yes some shops have been moved about a bit during the refurbishment but that is not unusual you can’t do building work if a shop is still operating, so some of the silly comments made by other reviewers make no sense. Don’t complain that the mall needs to be upgraded, then complain when it is. If you are going to comment on something, make a sensible comment. There are bargains to be found, if you look around. Small independent traders with a myriad of items all there for the discerning shopper. Don’t be put off by some of the negative remarks, this is still great location. People talk about the new malls, everything sharp and shiny but they are also far more expensive. Tops supermarket stocks plenty of items for the benefit of tourists and their food area serves plenty of delicious dishes that appeal to everyone no matter where they are from. The cinema on the top floor has been totally refurbished and Major Cineplex will be open for business within the next couple of weeks. A few moaning Minnies will not stop us from coming here. We have made it a must visit for the past 15 years or so. Give it a try, make up your own mind, and enjoy it.

Total Dump
Jan 2020 • Solo
Half the mall is closed for renovations...the other half has every second shop shuttered and locked up tight.
Don't stay from the entrance or you may get lost since all the maps are torn out leaving an empty podium. The cinema? Forget it...it's closed too.
Dirty with flickering lights.
You will see most of the shop workers sleeping in plain sight.
Go to Maya or Central Festival instead.

Mall in Need of Revitalization
Jan 2020 • Friends
Kad Suan Kaew is located Huay Kaew Road surrounded by Orchid Chiang Mai Hotel, a bunch of little massage shops and a Thai silk shop. There’s a Tops Supermarket at the basement level and a Starbucks right in front. There’s also a food court on the basement level, but options are limited. Many of the restaurants on the basement level are rather empty and don’t draw a crowd. There’s a cinema on level 4 and a row of massage shops on level two. Although there are many shops, there isn’t much to set this mall above it’s nearby competitors down the road.

An oldie but goodie
Nov 2019
This is one of the older shopping malls in Chiang Mai, and it's currently being revamped. The basement is finished, and there's plenty of good cheap food to be had there, along with Tops supermarket. Central Department Store takes up 3 stories, and has plenty to offer. There are many food and coffee outlets on the upper floors, and it's worth exploring the back areas too; it's a bit of a rabbit warren, but you'll probably only be lost for a little while. I haven't been to the movies there for awhile, but I hear the cinemas are currently being renovated, so it'll be worth checking out when they're finished. On Monday and Tuesday mornings there's a mostly organic market between the shopping mall and the Lotus Hotel. You can buy free range eggs there too, and the prices are excellent.

I found what I was looking for, and I am happy with it
Nov 2018
I have been many times in Thailand and this was my 3rd visit in Chiang Mai.
As far as prices are relevant I have always had better bargains in Chiang Mai.

This time I was looking for Levi's or Lee Cooper Jeans but couldn't find any in the center of Chiang Mai.
Neither in Big C couldn't we find them and I didn't want to wait for Bangkok.

So we tried this mall, and find them in the general store there.
I must point out out that this is not a place for tourists, all the better.
The prices were fantastic, a third of what we have in my country, and now, almost a year after wearing them I can assure they are not fake ones.

Of course there is much more opportunities for shopping in Bangkok than here.
Yes, there is definitely much more choice in MBK, Pratunam market, shops along Sukhumvit (near Nana Sky Train station), Tcha Tu Tchak (Weekend Market) of course in the weekends, even Big C, but when price is relevant, Chiang Mai is the place to do your shopping.

So this is my advice: if you find what you want , take it now, don't wait for Bangkok or another city market hoping to have a better deal.
One last advice: if you buy in general stores, they are not the kind of place in which it is appropriate to bargain as the prices are tagged and labelled.

But if you buy in the streets, night markets or alike, don't bargain too much, don't push to far.
a 5 or 10 or even 20 bath difference between the price you offer and the one the seller wants will not really make a difference in your wallet.
Please don't forget than 1 $ is not much at all for us but may be one day food for a whole family there.
If you insist staying at your price you might loose a good buy making the situation a lose/lose instead of a Win/Win.
Be generous, while of course not letting the sellers making fun of you.
1 or 2 dollars shouldn't stop you closing the deal.

Great place to explore
Jun 2019
Not a shiny new mall, but that's what we love about the place - much more interesting and have a great food market that sets up out the front on a Thursdsay Friday and Saturday. We have been going to Chiang Mai for 6 years and still enjoy getting lost in Kad Suan Kaew - exploring all the nooks and crannies

Renovation of the Food Hall 👍
Jul 2018 • Couples
😡The TRIP ADVISOR map attach as info is marked incorrectly but have tried several times too correct.
The CHIANG MAI ZOO IS NOT HERE.
And KAD is marked incorrectly at Maya Mall site.

The 1st mall in Chiang Mai.
Shops here are more affordable than the new malls ie: Maya.
It's a bit of a maze and showing it's age.
The outdoor market is small.

The ground floor of KAD has been re-modeled.
Great improvement.
Looking clean and easy to walk around.
Fresh and Healthy choices available.
Local products at very reasonable prices.
After a good shop at the plaza, this is a welcome rest bite.

Traditional dishes at the local food hall and now modern versions as well this is a great place to visit.

🤤

An Old Shopping Park with something special
Jun 2019 • Couples
It's an old and large shopping park. This park is now, of course, a bit outdated when now there are MAYA...etc more modern malls. Nevertheless, if you're interested in something real local and not the common items in the modern malls, this may be worthy for a visit. Here is where the local people come and shop.
