I had the best dinner in Chiang mai at Cafe de Nimman. The Tom Yung was simply amazing. The sweet, sour, spicy tastes are perfectly balanced. The lemon fish was really soft, smooth, and tasty with the refreshing sauce. The portion is huge, so couldn't really try many dishes. Will definitely come again if I am in Chiang mai.

Food is great! Value is assured! Staff are friendly and efficient, just be cool when speaking English, they will get it, they repeat your order, easy. Cleanliness is a big concern in Thailand, this place is clean, soap and paper towells "that are usually non existant" are supplied, washrooms clean and functional! The owner and his wife both speak English,... More

Be sure to make reservations as I walked in on a Wednesday night at 7pm and they only had one open table as all the others were reserved. Good food and English menu.

We had an amazing meal here. Lovely chilled atmosphere with jazz music playing in the background. Service was great, food took a while but was well worth the wait. The red seafood curry was the best I have ever tasted. My husband ordered the Red chicken curry and was also not disappointed. My son loved the pasta with mussels. Our... More

Maybe i am unlucky but ordered the pad Thai here and it was horribly bland. No seasoning, no sauce - mild flavour. Embarrassing.

It is a bit hard to find this restaurant, we had to call them to ask for directions. But it was really worth the efforts. The food was so dilecious and the price very reasonable. The service was good. I would definitely go back if we visit Chiangmai again!

Excellent Thai food with good service. Plentiful menus choices. Cute indoor decor with plentiful outdoor seating, too. Interesting tea and juice drinks, including the sweetened Lemmon tea. Great curries with generous meat portions. Somewhat hard to find among the confusing sois but worth the effort.
