The River market is centrally located on the River Ping and overlooking the Iron Bridge. The Thai-Burmese Colonial inspired building was built with 95% recycled wood and using old traditional construction techniques. The high ceiling adds light and the roof structure was designed for the air to circulate and keep the building cool even on the hottest days. The modern Thai kitchens showcase the food and the talented chefs that prepare it. Everything is cooked fresh using the best ingredients available. To make it a prefect meal we offer a selection of great wines, beers and cocktails chosen to compliment our food. The River Market Restaurant started with the idea of serving great Thai food at

A lovely view from the restaurant, overlooking the river. We had barbecued chicken and the khao soi- both were really great and fantastic portions. The mango smoothie and chocolate milkshake were also really great. A brilliant find in the centre of Chiang Mai!

We chose this restaurant as it was quite busy (usually a good sign) and although T the service wasn't particularly friendly, the food was good. We sat near a fan and I'm glad we did as it was a very hot evening .

Nice setting on the river. Expensive and with service charge and tax. You would come here more for the atmosphere than the limited menu.
