We stopped for a coffee and snack while on a motorbike tour of northern Thailand. Good service in relaxed atmosphere. had two bus loads of tourists stop during our visit, so timing was lucky for us with quick service. I would defiantly visit again

An interesting restaurant with great potential, located next to a lake, where can fish the fish to cook. Nice atmosphere and beautiful landscape around. Menu with many options to choose but clearly not to be confused. We ordered fish with fried rice, chicken noodle, vegetable soup and other typical local dishes, and we shared all at the thai stile.

This is a cute coffee house that is located on the lake. They make beautiful designs with the cream on the coffee. They serve a variety of other drinks like tea and smoothies.

Great variety of Thai food (fried pork, dancing shrimps, fried fish, soup, ...) while enjoying a nice view on Phayao lake. If you go for dinner time, you will enjoy sunset view as well. Great place for family dinner.

Walked up and back down Chaykwan Road and this restaurant stood out in comparison to the others... We were not dissapointed. Exceptional crispy Tilapia fish, prawn fried rice and papaya salad all perfectly prepared. Chic surroundings - love the minimalist decor and the open view on to the lake (albeit night time). Service was great (little English but who cares)... More

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here during a stopover. We both had the koa gai, local noodle dish. I had it with chicken, my wife had it with just vegetables. Lots of local Thai dishes on the menu. Decent food, nothing outstanding, but very good and a great spot for lunch. Beautiful view of the lake from either of... More

Ta Kwan has been a long time favourite of mine when visiting Phayao, and a recent visit there did not disappoint. There is a good and varied menu with all the normal Thai favourites including fish from the lake. The layout of the restaurant has been given some thought and is well planned. The ground floor of the restaurant is... More
