A quaint and popular Khao Soy restaurant in the Nimman area. I find the deco very nice and calming with a selection of air conditioned and outdoor dining area available. The place was quite crowded when I dropped by during lunch. However the service was...prompt with English menu booklet available. Basically, the menu just consists of Khao Soy noodles with different toppings of both vegetarian and non vegetarian options. Food was served promptly, but I find the portion a little small for the price paid. Overall, it was a delicious bowl of noodle and this is a good place to try one of the signature Chiang Mai dish for first timers!More

Beautiful restaurant, beautiful food! My friends all had variations of the traditional Northern Thai dish Khoa Soy, 2 had the vegetarian option of mushroom, and the other roast pork. They were fresh & slightly spicy but not blow your head off spicy! I had the...Fish curry which came with rice noodles, ginger, Thai crackers, crushed walnuts & chillies. It was devine. Spicy, coconut creamy & the fish in the curry was Thai fish balls. There’s a hell at the table you press for service which is quite nice. Press & a friendly waiter/waitress quickly arrives at the table. Only drawback was paying for ice in our drinks but apart from that, it’s a must eat for Chaing Mai 😊More

Nice ambient, friendly service with indoor and outdoor seating. The Koa Soy is delicious, noodle are done to correct texture. Fragrant curry broth, slightly a bit too sweet otherwise balance in Flavour. The Northern Thai pork fish (Hors D-oeuvre Muang) is well presented, meats in...different styles done to our liking. The 2 dipping sauces are tasty. The Kang Ho mixed Curry is not done to our liking, sweet and lack of flavour. Still, an enjoyable lunch.More

We were exploring the area, chanced upon this place and decided to give it a try, as the place seemed popular with locals and tourist alike. The Kao Soi definitely did not disappoint! I had Kao Soi with mushroom, while my husband had their Signature...big bowl of Kao Soi. We loved it so much that we came back within 2 days :) Portion size, for the noodles we felt that it could have been a bit more, so for our 2nd time around, we ordered additional noodles (at 20 baht each). A plus point is that service is brisk and our food came fast. A must visit!More

The best Kao Soy is served as street food but this place saved us from almost leaving Chiang Mai without having eaten Kao Soy! There’s a ton of variety and it’s one of the only places you can get Kao Soy in the evening, since...it’s typically served as breakfast or lunch (before 12). When we arrived, it looked like there was a big line but it moved very quickly and they provide seating and menus while you wait.More

My husband loves khao soi, so we were on the hunt for the best khao soi in town, and saw the great reviews on this place! Although not the best khao soi, it was pretty delicious! When we got there around lunch time, there was...a huge line up! We contemplated waiting or not, but ultimately decided to since we were there anyways and we really wanted to try this place out. We got our number from the hostess and she told us there were 20 numbers ahead of us so we were prepared to wait for at least an hour. There is a bubble tea place right beside it so we ordered a bubble tea while we waited. To our surprise, the wait only took about 25 minutes! We got seated in the air-conditioned space at the back, which was good because it was such a hot day out! I ordered the chicken khao soi, my husband ordered the beef khao soi, and we also got the crispy wontons and steamed vegetables to share. The food came within 10 minutes, which was very reasonable. The khao soi tasted quite good, just the right amount of richness, and not too spicy. Since this place is so popular among tourists, we felt that perhaps the dish was not truly authentic, compared to some other khao soi we have tried. Delicious food nonetheless! The food was definitely tourist pricing since it was pricier than most other local restaurants, but we expected that going in so no surprises there. I would definitely return to this place if I find myself in Chiang Mai again, but I’d probably try to go a bit earlier to avoid the lunch time rush.More

Sorry to say this didn't live up to expectations. Khao soi was very spicy, oily and red, I've had this multiple times and is usually mild and yellow. Admittedly I am not good with spice but my partner who loves spice said he thought it...was spicy (he was sweating!) My advice is come if you want a spicy Khao soi, but not if you want it how it should actually taste. Portions are also on the smaller side and more expensive than we had paid previously. We got a fried rice which tasted good.More
