Not only, is the setting beautiful, it's in a temple site and the chedi remains, but the owner is charming, the staff vey attentive and helpful. The food is beyond compare. I am staying in chiang my old town for six weeks, every night possible I eat here. Who cares about my once girlish figure
Steve is brilliant. Cannot say enough good things about the food. Just tell him what you want...

Absolutely fantastic place, the atmosphere and Host( a transplanted American who speaks the local language) are awesome, out of the 4 nights in Chang Mai, we ate dinner here for 3 of them, listen to the host for recommendations...

He didn't steer us wrong on any night...

Try the Japanese GYOZA and the Shrimp Wontons were beautiful and amazing.....
And the local dish to Chang Mai, I'm sorry to say I can't remember the name of it, but it was a Stunning meal, and the Penang was simply a delight to eat..

Staff were excellent, and the atmosphere was just right...
Not so much a view over hills or beach, but inside the restaurant, is great, with a sense of soul/ age/ mystical / peace..
We will be returning there as soon as we can... hungry for more...

This place is a bit hidden but once you walk into the garden it's like a hidden gem sweeping you away from the city.

The garden had an old temple and huge banyan tree hanging over the whole thing. There is a small waterfall providing the perfect ambiance.

The food is also great! The owner is a transplanted westerner who's been here for 20 yrs. He loves good food and good music which absolutely shows in the food.

We had a perfectly made cashew shrimp along with an amazing artichoke garlic mushroom cheese baguette pizza.

Topped off with a refreshing lychee soda and chocolate ganache butter cake, this was absolutely one of the best meals we had in Chiang Mai and Thailand!

Steve will cook stuff you might just crave after months travelling.
And what about grilled chicken breast with a light cream and cheese shrimp sauce!

I've been here before in high season and this week visited again in low season. Just as good, special board every day. Steve ensures you get just what you want and even plays music in the back ground. Super return dinner visit thank you
