Truly authentic and the most delicious meal we had on the trip! The restaurant is on the main road just before you get to the main shopping strip so be sure to keep your eyes peeled as you do not want to miss this place!

We ate there twice and it was sooo delicious. Compared to the most other restaurants in this area (e.g. Rabeang, Green Pepper, Siam,...), has Hill Tribe a very authentic kitchen with great thai food as it should be! We really loved it!

So very happy with the wonderful service and fantastic food. We were the first people to arrive for the evening and we could not have asked for better service. The food was so very tasty and dessert was a treat. Everything was very clean. Would highly recommend! Thank you 👍😀

Lovely food, warm and friendly hospitality. Staff at our resort passed on a "hello" to the HillTribe owners via us, as they are friends and hadn't seen each other in a while. We were then considered friends and recieved complimentary fruit platter desert! Very lovely people

Description
Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened in 2008. Its chef and owner comes from the area of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand and therefore Hill Tribe Restaurant does not only offer excellent and genuine Thai food but it also introduces its guests to a traditional and unique North Thai dining experience.
Families with children are welcome - we have special dishes for kids in our menu.

Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.
