Get a table outside and put on plenty of mosquito repellant. It's really loud when the band started playing inside the restaurant. It's great atmosphere with eclectic mix of customers. Dining on the river bank is a must-do in Chiang Mai. There are quite a few of them on this side of river and they are more or less the... More

It seems very crowded from outside but after we walked in we realised it actually has a large space and we managed to... More

Went here three times on my recent trip to Chiang Mai,including the river dinner. Overall I would say if you're going to eat choose Thai as it is much better than the farang food !! Good music and vibe later in the evening . Well worth a visit on the banks of the Ping 😄

Really nice dinner with live music. There are a few tables next to the river with amazing views. There were a lot of people but we did not have a problem to find a table close to the musicians. We enjoyed a really nice evening.
