Chiang Mai gets incredibly busy at dinner on weekends... Booking necessary, and even then, your table might not be ready on time. If you order lots of stuff including wine (lots of or expensive wine), the service is attentive... If you don't, then service leaves a bit to be desired. However, this is because it gets so busy, not because all of the staff are unfriendly.
Food is standard Thai fare, good but not amazing. Portions are not overly generous.

We had to wait for a table and I expected it to be a rushed meal, but it wasn't. Staff were pleasant and gave us plenty of time to choose and we were not at all harried or made to feel we needed to move on. Food was good but nothing exceptional.

Try the steamed sea bass with chilli and lime. It's hot, sour and sweet in the right combination. We love to have it with deep fried squid and thai iced tea.

We ate here lateish last Saturday and were welcomed warmly. Not everywhere is delighted to see customers at 9.30 but the place was buzzing. We waited a few minutes to be seated and were found a small table in the downstairs dining room. The restaurant is three small dining rooms over two floors, leading to a cosy and intimate atmosphere.
The waiting staff guided us skilfully through the long menu and the food was just lovely. Well sized portions and delicious.
Would I return - the sooner the better.

Certainly was impressed with the inviting service as well as the restaurant environment. The food itself is some of the best Asian cuisine I have tasted so far in Oxford. It was fresh and reasonable portion size. I can say without a doubt that I plan to visit here once again.
