We went on a Saturday night, so very busy. Hard to get a waitress. Good food. Reasonable prices. Nice live music.

Large queues on a Saturday so recommend that you book a table (which most people inside had done except for the large number waiting outside). You'd come here for the atmosphere. Great music and interesting paraphernalia decorate every spot on the walls. Food was typical pub Thai at typical popular pub Thai prices. Looks like it has a large "singles"... More

Server at the Four Seasons recommended this place and it did not disappoint. Very popular with locals and it gets packed, no reservations at night, so get there early. Live bands are really good, food is good too. Barely any English is understood here.

We visited Saturday for lunch. The atmosphere was breezy and relaxed, right on the river. All of the food was average with exception of the crab fried rice, that was pretty good. 😊 But, the Pad Thai was sickeningly sweet. It was so sweet I could not eat it 😣 We also had Tom Yom Goong that was too spicy... More

This is a very big restaurant yet due to the efficiency of the waiting the food and drinks came quickly. Lots of lights, a live band, water features, this place has it all. We hadn't booked, and although it was busy we only waited 10min. Good choice on the menu, and the food tasted nice.

Perfect place to eat in Chiang Mai. Located right on the river with a good view. The food was excellent and so was the service.

The environment is good. Sitting next to the river and enjoy the meal. There are live singers and music players singing Thai songs (but I don't understand Thai) and sometimes English songs. A enjoyable bar and restaurant. Lots of food choices. The prices are not high as well. Nice for those who would like to treat yourself a better dinner... More

This city centre Chaing Mai restaurant looks small from the outside but huge on the inside. Great atmosphere and packed with diners. Good service and great live band....BUT we were all five of us disappointed in the food portion size was small and the slow roast pork was bland and dry and over cooked... Three of out party were Thai... More

It is a very popular (bar and) restaurant amongst locals and tourists. You may have to queue for a table. I find their food and music are just average but their view by the river is great.
