The food here was nice but not amazing, the servings were all very small which didn't really work for a large group. The service was fairly average having to ask for things a few times and language barriers started creating issues.

We asked for things to be really hot and spicy but came out mostly medium.

You will need to book if you want to get in.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a knowledgeable local. It was a feast for our eyes as well as our stomach. Delicious food everywhere. It always seems packed with people, but service was smooth, efficient and friendly. The air-conditioned section was very welcome a couple of afternoons, and sharing a huge table with other people was not a problem. It was an opportunity to see some of the endless selection of dishes on the menu.

My perfect meal is ordering a half dozen dishes, some of which we don't have a clue about, and digging in. Jackfruit curry? Yum! And the best khao soi I had in Chiang Mai. Just about everything was a treat. Including the bill.

Read lots of good reviews about this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Atmosphere is okay, the owner piled way too much stuff in that tiny space though. This is absolutely not art. Service is slow and the waiters barely speak any English. The food is overpriced, taste is plain. Overall not worth the trip.

If you go during lunch hours, it will be jam packed with tourists. Service crews are impatient and rude. Make sure you know what you want to order for everyone (if you are travelling in a group of people), otherwise the waitress will just walk away. Even if you are not sure what food to order, do not bother to ask cos' you will get the wrong answer.
