Having meal by Ping river in the center of Chiangmai has made us a different nice feeling. Food is good quality. Very good service. Special thank you to Mr. Kip for giving us your best service. He always smiles, cares for customers and definitely gived his service by heart. Next time we will be back again.

A very nice colonial-chic atmosphere, perfect for a weekend brunch, along the Ping River and decor designed with attention to detail. The food itself was good, if not great, and it certainly is pricey, but as a once-in-a-while experience its worth it, and I'm sure I'll be back.

This restaurant is located in the Anantara Chiang Mai Resort, one of the most architecturally impressive hotels in town, and it offers a quiet and beautiful view of the river. It’s a place we have enjoyed over the years. The cuisine is primarily western and Indian, but on request we were given a menu with at least twenty additional Thai... More

A night we want to eat something different then Thai so we chose this restaurant. The food was nice but pricey compared to other restaurants. The service was a bit of a mess, but that could have been our bad luck.

My husband and I were looking for a place to go for a special night out while in Chiang Mai, and we had high hopes for this place based on the other TA reviews that we saw.

If you need a break for Asian food and you feel like spending 30usd per person for a nice Riverside meal this might be the right spot. We had a snow fish with local white wine demi sec not bad at all. Pineapple poach Dessert was pretty boring and not worth it.

We found the restaurant when we were strolling through Chiang Mai and noticed the Anantara hotel. After entering and having a drink we were impressed by the surroundings and decided to come back later that night for dinner. A real case of serendipity. We sat outside with a view of the Ping river.
