This place was once the go to spot for Chiang Mai food. Now food is far better at Huen Pen (but don't go there for dinner it becomes a tourist trap after 5pm). Now limited range and appalling lazy service here. We sat sweating it...More

Reviews brought us here. Disappointing. Big menu. No alcohol til after 5pm. I had khao soi. Not the best. Weak to no curry flavor. Chicken dry. Wife had a shrimp soup, Tom yum goon, not good she said. She is Thai.

We ordered vegetarian food but I’m not sure if the stock they used was actually vegetable stock, I think it may have been the same chicken stock they use for all dishes. Although not impolite, the staff were not so friendly.

Whilst visiting Chiang Mai again we decided to visit Aroon. If you want lovely, quality, authentic Thai cuisine then visit Aroon.
