I am looking for a decent thai restaurant in Chiang Kong. I know the tacos are amazing at Bamboo it says so in all the guide books.
I don't care if it is by the river or not I have an amazing view already from my hotel room.
I just would like a place with some decent regular thai food not full of rowdy drunkards.
I have tried three of the riverside restaurants now.
One is constantly full of drunk backpackers and the service is the kind where you feel guilty for having bothered one of the waiters to order something and the place smelled like old mop.
Another was ok, but the food frankly was overpriced and not great. I understand the part about being on the river so at least a part of the price is the view but at least serve good food.
The third had good food but the worst waitress I have ever encountered in Thailand. I had water spilled on me because her phone call was more important. It was painful to watch her work I felt almost like i was back in India.
I have a couple of more days here and I really like the place except I have never in the five times I have been to Thailand had so much headache just getting a bite to eat in a town of this size.
