We dined at Hong Tauw Inn on a rainy evening following recommendation from our hotel. With a good selection of local northern Thai cuisine as well as the popular thai favourites, the food was very nice. We tried a local pork curry, stir fried sunflower greens and a snakehead fish stirfry. The restaurant is cute with a collection of grandfather... More

This is a restaurant you can’t afford to miss when visiting Nimmanhaemin. All the dishes are very authentic & full of flavour. Highly recommend the Narm Phrig Long-Reu which is a dip of very rich flavor &layers. The deep fried shrimp cake is phenomenal. Be curious when ordering in this restaurant (don’t just stick to fried rice/curry) & you won’t... More

A serene, comfortable oasis on the chaotic Nimmenhaemin Rd. A restaurant that has existed for many years, serving a large variety of traditional Thai dishes, always fresh and well prepared. Moderate prices for quality food. Service is good with a friendly and accommodating staff. One of my favorite and frequently visited restaurants.

Stumbled upon this place and it was so delicious. Service was fantastic, we felt like we were having a family dinner. We had the thick spicy basil noodles and khao soi. Both were delicious. Would definitely return.

Love this place which is only a few steps from our airbnb condo. Their portions are small but perfect for us, feels more like home cooking. Had Fried crispy catfish with mango salad and salt fish with Chinese kale, both are delicious. Bookmark for future returns.

Hong Tauw Inn had one of the best Koh Soi I've had in Chiang Mai. Paid around 600 baht for 3 people. The atmosphere is very nice however there's many better places to go to for cheaper food with good quality in Chiang Mai.

This seems like a traditional old Thai restaurant. It is very nicely done - with lot of precious works of art or interest on display all over!!! Especially clocks! Food is good, we ate here few times and Thai food dishes are very well explained on menu - very interesting and useful menu though a bit showing some age. Food... More

One of my favourite meals in Chiang Mai. Great Khao Soi, friendly service and traditional atmosphere. Some may say it's a little dated but it really maintains the character of past years. Highly recommended.

You can find some rare and difficultly made dishes of Thai food here with Central style (not Northern style) so that sweet and spicy is dominant. However, every dishes were made by selective material and seasoning resulting to a plenty of deliciousness. Foods were served in small portion size (relatively expensive) but valuable.
