We ate at this restaurant three times since the food was good and it was within walking distance of our hotel. It is right on the Ping River, so a nice location. We tried several Thai dishes, and they were really good. Their homemade ice...More

We had a lovely boat ride on the Ping River. Boat departed on time and the food was excellent! Staff was attentive and accommodating. The band was playing when we returned and the place was jumping! Lovely evening spent.

Decent food by the riverside, the stir fried crab in egg curry is pretty good and affordable. Nice festive atmosphere upstairs in the bar area, totally happening for the young crowd. Good selections of wines and spirits.

The band really hit it off that night. We moved a lot around in the bar, as we wanted to be close to the band. Staff was always very kind and attentive. Good Drinks and good are the perfect combination.
