We went to the Farmer after reading the reviews here. Since we were staying in Mae Nam, they sent a free taxi to pick us up.
The service was very attentive, but the food was very expensive. It was also tasty, but most of the food we had in Thailand was very tasty and much, much less costly. The setting is nice, but very dark. We could hardly see the food.

We first sampled the Chef's food a couple of year's ago when he was leading the team at a hotel we were staying at, and to say his dishes were divine would be an understatement. When we returned to the hotel on another vacation a few years later, we were told that he had left to open his own restaurant, so of course we had to check it out!

The setting is very romantic, in the middle of a rice padi. We went twice for dinner and focused only on the Thai selection although there are options for Italian as well. We chose dishes from the menu and also sampled off the menu dishes that the Chef and his team improvised which were delicious! I highly recommend trying both on and off menu items!

We just returned after a wonderful dinner (we went with our two little children). We were picked up by a courtesy car of the restaurant from our Mae Nam hotel and found a beautiful setting, the restaurant is bordering on a rice field, with ducks and frogs' "chanting" in the background. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, the children's menu was inexpensive and good and the food tasty. We ate delicious Thai food and desserts! The bill was very reasonable and we were driven back to our hotel. Go there, you will not be disappointed!

The thai food is among the best I had and our service was very friendly and on point. The atmosphere was very relaxed and a nice change. Pricing is good for the quality.
