i was skeptical since the hotel pointed it out (i'm that way of any restaurant that's on a hotel map) but since it was within walking distance, we gave it a try.
everything we ordered was very good and the prices very reasonable. dinner for three with wine/beer was less than $50.

in a nutshell i think this is great "safe" restaurant--great ambiance (plentiful outdoor seating) and really tasty food.

The setting was great and the food fine, but too pricey for our budget. Next time, I'll pass and stick to the market.

The Whole Earth restaurant is an amazing place. The food is 100% authentic, the taste is perfect, the service is excellent and the environment is calm. Surprisingly the prices are low. For the quality of this food, I would expect prices to be high but the dishes are well priced. I have been to Chiang Mai twice and I keep coming back to this place. I really enjoy the food and recommend it. The Chicken Pai Thai is excellent! Cheers!

I have never ever had to add chillies & coriander to tom yum soup! And without lemongrass or galangal it was nowhere near the real thing. When I complained about the quality to the manageress, she admitted that they do tone down their food for foreigners. At BT 600 for two soups and a beer, it was 5 times more expensive than we have paid elsewhere on the street, and nowhere near as good. Admittedly you do get air conditioning for that.
However if you want real Thai food at real Thai prices, recommend you head two blocks up and go to Anusarn market for the real thing.
