Description: No View But Tasty!
Reviewed December 13, 2012

We just happened to walk by, as we were staying at the hotel next to it. It says no view but good food. A quick google revealed the very positive reviews in Tripadvisor. So we walked in.

It's fusion all right, in the sense that the Thai food has been modified to western taste buds, right down to letting the customer choose the degree of hotness! It's delicious enough, with good spice kick if you ask for at least medium, but I have tasted better, more authentic and cheaper Thai food.

The service is simple but fast and efficient, they speak good English, and while waiting, one can amuse oneself reading the comments scribbled on the walls!

After walking past this restaurant and noticing the slogan 'no view but great food' we researched it on TA and paid a visit. It was so good we ate there 2 nights in a row (the second night being tonight)!
How anyone can say its not authentic beggars belief....two nights ago we attended a Thai cookery course (Siam rice cookery school [fabulous]) and ordered the same food tonight and it was the same and delicious!!
We are British however, but to our untrained palette we loved it and would go again had we been here another night.
The staff are wonderful, it's inexpensive and a great place. Look past the cafe style appearance as it's definitely worth a visit.

This modest restaurant has superb food. We appreciated the opportunity to crank up the heat. Something that's not always possible in "farang"-dominated spots. Great service and friendly atmosphere.

This was such a bright spot on my trip. The food, the atmosphere, and the service was amazing. We went there twice in our 4 day stay in Chiang Mai because it was so delicious!! I would recommend this to anyone close to the Night Bizzare. So good!
