Old school Thai bar run by an American and a haven for local ex pats. It is a comfortable drinking place, friendly helpful staff who speak English. Known for the wide range of food available, European, American and Thai; all good and good prices. We were drawn by a sign for 'Sunday Roast Buffet' and it was worth the effort.... More

This place offers Western as well as Thai food. Daily specials are always good, especially the buffet on Sundays. Real fruit is used in all drinks! Friendly staff. "Where The Cool People Eat"

Pros: Large area, open-air (but covered), inexpensive food - much of it good, free wi-fi, and television showing the news. There are specials every day, giving even more savings (though drinkers are encouraged to order 3 large beers!). Cons: Not clean enough, poor toilets, some inefficient staff (though some good), really old, uncomfortable furniture, smelly canal running alongside and it... More

The staff are lovely and the food is cheap but it is full of expats smoking which is a big turn off. It could be a little bit cleaner as well.

If you are looking to have a beer and some good storytelling at the bar with English speaking backpackers/expats, this is your jam spot. The Atmosphere is open air, relaxing and welcoming to all and the service was great. If you are okay with decently priced, western food and all things westernized (Thai, Asian, etc) , you will love this... More

I've read many of the reviews of others, and due to their bad reviews, have never been and will probably never go to Gekko Gardens for breakfast. OK -- lunch. I was there just two days ago and had the best fish and chips that I've ever had in Chiang Mai, and equal to most in English pubs. Two LARGE... More

I walked in by mistake trying to get to another restaurant but I got stuck in a downpour so I sought refugee. The crowd is pretty local & expat which is really cool cause they've been around the block & got good bits of info. The foods good & they have one of the best happy hours.

Nothing fancy, but very genial, cheap, and open until midnight. This is definitely a fully-stocked bar with good prices on everything, but it's also a restaurant featuring reliably good Western and Thai menu items. Very convenient to the Night Bazaar's southern end at Panthip Plaza.
