We were seated by the waiters after a 10 minute wait, given our drinks 30 mins post-ordering, and still haven’t received our food 1 hour post-ordering! 10 minutes ago, the waiter said the food will be here in 15 minutes. Just now, a waiter told...us the food will take another 30 minutes. Service is extremely unreliable. No element of customer care! The funniest part is, can’t even tell you how the food was. Left 1.5 hours after arriving with empty stomachs, and barely even an apology. Guess there’s a first time for everything..don’t let this be your first!More

So full because I wanted to try every dish on the menu. Northern food is special in a way that its prepared in such a delicate way, its not messy and fills the heart up. This place does exactly that.

Very busy restaurant, famous with both local and tourist. Although they have long queue with all table occupied on peak hours, the food service was quick and efficient which worth for waiting. The food was delicious. I personally recommend their Mix Northern appetizer platter which...have good combination of spicy & non-spicy things.More

10/10 for food here! We love all food as well as some weird local foods that we haven’t tried before. I recommend ‘Kao soi’ and the Northen set. These are so good. This restaurant quite busy but we got a good service from them so...worth it! We had a amazing dinner with family and friends and will go back for sure 😋More

This place has the worst service I have ever had in CM. No one speaks a word of English. I won't return. Food is also way overrated.

This restaurant has been the favourite place of my elder sister for years. So, when I went with her this January, this was a must go place for dinner. The first night we went at 06.00 p.m. and found around 20 customers waiting. So we...decided to go somewhere else. The next night I called to place a reservation and was told I had to arrive at the restaurant before 05.30 p.m. We went there and all the dishes were really good. We ordered Nam Prik Noum, Pak Kard Jor, etc and really enjoyed them. The down side was desserts. Actually we ordered them and had a great time. But when we decided to have some more, the waiter said they were sold out. And at only 06.30 p.m. The next night we went again and ordered the desserts first.More

Spotted this place on a you tube video and like the look of the restaurant. We enjoyed the Northern Thai food and did not have the usual problem that restaurants are reluctant to serve Pet Pet spiced dishes to Ferang customers. Vast majority of clients...were Thai with only one other foreign couple and an expat boss accompanied by the ladies from the office. Beware this place gets busy and we were there early. I noted lots of chairs outside for people to sit and wait.More

My extended Thai family who are food experts liked this so much they came here twice . The food quality is excellent and great value . You’ve got to queue to get in so you’ll need patience but the food is worth the wait .

I'm gonna be real. I was traveling to Chiang Mai solo in September 2019, and went here on the recommendation of my host. Hardly anyone spoke any english, and the menu thankfully had pictures so I could mime what I wanted. Still not totally sure...what I ordered, but it was some kind of mango curry. It was SO good. This place was packed full of locals, so I knew it must be decent, but the dish was delightful. I usually have a high tolerance for spice, but this one was spicy. I had tears running down my cheeks, but tears of joy. So good, but so spicy. Overall, I would definitely visit again, if anything for the experience. Servers were very nice about the language barrier, service was quick, and it had a great atmosphere!More

We were looking forward to eating here based on recommendations found online and by some locals. We ordered five items and two of them were very disappointing. One of the items was a chicken curry containing just a few small pieces of chicken which turned...out to be parts of the neck of the chicken or just bones. Another was a grilled fish in banana leaf which had a lot of bones and bits of the heads of a fish - hardly any meat at all!More
