We were taken here by locals and it was truly inspiring to see. The place was packed out, infact we had to take a number and wait on the lounges to get a table! The food was pretty good, although for the buzz this restaurant has managed to create, I believe it is the venue / atmosphere more so than... More

The waterfalls and water features attracted me when we just entered the place. The eating hall is huge and surrounded by trees, plants and water. The service is marvelous. The food is perhaps the best in Chiang Mai. I recommend the fried duck. Price, well, is surprising cheap!

A popular & busy place. Some negative reviews, likely this how it goes when they are busy. But the place is scenic, and if they are not too busy it comes out very good. I like here the Nam Prik Ongh, a northern speciality.

Not too impressed, food was average at Best, rather sweet overall. Service was soso and due to weather not being to sit outside, the inside was rather dark and dull with the added noise of tour groups.

An interesting place to have some Thai food. The waiters are a bit aloof, but the man-made forest, waterfalls and the food are well worth a visit.

When you walk into this restaurant, you feel like you are stepping into a tropical garden. Flowers everywhere. The food was pretty good as well and the presentation was nice. You are paying the extra for the beauty. And you have to check out the bathrooms. Lol. My teenage boys think it is the coolest bathroom in Chiang Mai so... More

Definitely one of the best local restaurants in Chiangmai and maybe even in Thailand.. Serve authentic and delicious Thai cuisine at reasonable prices.. Located in a "forest" setting with it's own lake and mini waterfall.. Overall Great Food and Great Ambience !
