“Excellent French restaurant”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Chef Oh has created this delightful and tasteful restaurant in the heart of the old city. For Chiang Mai the menu selections are authentic and good, the tastes even better. The restaurant is small and you'll probably need a reservation. I have eaten here many times and keep coming back! Air-conditioning inside plus a small outside seating area. Very pleasant.

This intimate French restaurant, serves deliciously infused French cuisine. Charming intimate atmosphere. This place is the jewel of Chiang Mai, Thailand. The old city, across Wat Chedi Luang temple.

“Vote for La Fourchette its one of the best restaurants in town!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Located in the heart of the Old City this restaurant simply deserves to be voted one of the best French restaurants in Chiang Mai.
Please don't just take this traveller's word for it ..........and it was so good my wife and I visited twice!

Just simply book a table and experience the excellence of the attentive staff, fabulous cuisine and charming location

Travellers tip - the beef steak is to die for and a rarity in Thailand cooked to perfection .

“Dining with the King”
Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

Well he did once... Here! The photos are upstairs on the wall. The desserts are delicious foremost the grand marnier icecream soufflé and then the nougat icecream. The mains - all components were cooked excellently, with great flavour. It doesn't have the flair or presentation restaurants in Paris but for Thailand this was lovely. We also recommend the house red it's delicious. It's expensive for 2 mains, 2 desserts and a carafe of wine was 1300bht. But not a dint on what that would cost at home.

“Excellent French restaurant in the old town”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

This is an unexpected discovery - a restaurant in the old town which serves very good French cuisine. The chef is Thai/Swiss and is very good - as good quality as most restaurants in France itself, at much lower cost! It is only a small place so best to book, the small area outside was pleasant in the evening as not much traffic noise by then.
We ate white snapper, one with cream sauce one with lemon sauce, preceded by onion soup and a tuna salad, finished off with coffee and lovely chocolate truffles.
The house wine by the carafe is South African and was very good, not rough like most restaurants we have been to in Thailand - highly recommend it.
Overall a great place if you want a change from Asian food, especially if your hotel is in the old town.
