“The Mediterranean- in Asia!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Pern's dining room glows with welcome and is filled with laid back, live music and helpful, attentive staff. The menu is ambitious and is a tour de force- I live in Chiang Mai and have never been disappointed.

Regular special themed evenings and promotions mean that however often you visit there is always something new to try and the extensive experience of the proprietor guarantee great food, an intelligent wine list and real value.

I use Pern's for business dinners, romantic trysts, pleasant evenings with friends and solo dining. You must not visit Chiang Mai without eating at this excellent eatery.

“Pern's Neighborhood Restaurant”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

When visiting Chiang Mai, Thailand, I recommend a dinner out at Pern’s Restaurant, a lovely neighborhood eatery for good Mediterranean food and signature steaks at reasonable prices. Conveniently located on Hway Kaew Road just 70-meters or less going west down the street from the Kad Suan Kaew shopping mall (home of Central Department store) and right across from the Shell Oil station, which provides free parking, Pern’s offers an appetizing array of foods to satisfy most culinary tastes. The “Starters” include Mediterranean favorites, like tabuleh or hummus with pita bread. There is also a cheese platter, a cold meat platter and country style liver pate that goes great with a glass of wine. The “Mains” consist of traditional foods from several Mediterranean countries, such as moussaka and Ottoman chicken from Turkey; lamb tangine from Morocco, and from Greece, a Greek style baked fish, as well as the stuffed Greek chicken breast. There are several pasta dishes, including my favorite: salmon in a creamy white sauce. Salads include both Greek and Caesar varieties, the latter of which can be ordered with chicken. Pern’s “Signature Dishes” include pan fried pork, fillet of John Dory, braised lamb steaks and tender, juicy lamb shanks. If you’ve been to Southeast Asia before, you’ll know that finding a tender steak is a rarity, but you won’t be disappointed at Pern’s, since the restaurant is noted for its tender and juicy prime house steaks in two weights, 200 and 250 grams, all cooked to perfection. Pern’s also offers steak mignons, tender slices of steak in a creamy and brandied black pepper sauce with tomatoes and mushrooms. Other dishes include beef stroganoff, escalope of pork, duck orange sauce and grilled tuna. To top off a delicious meal for those with a sweet tooth, Pern’s offers several homemade desserts, like the crème brulee with strawberry coulis, or if you’re craving the taste of chocolate, try their chocolate truffle cake. They also make their own bread. They have dinner specials every night of the week except Mondays, when they are closed. They also stock a large assortment of fine wines from all over the world and on Wednesdays, Pern’s offers half-price glasses of red or white house wine. Pern’s is truly a gem of a neighborhood restaurant and certainly worth a visit that won’t disappoint! – Don Mott

“Just wonderful!!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

My party of five had 3 finicky eaters but all of us were blown away by how yummy the food was. After 8 days of mostly local food, we were craving for something Western and Pern's hit the spot. The lamb is definitely a must-try and their sphagettis were also a hit with the finicky eaters.

The service by the local staff was excellent. I liked how we got a quick response from our email booking, just done earlier in the day.

Too bad we had to leave before the solo performer was ready. This is definitely worth another visit.

The final bill was half of what we spent at Duke's but the quality of the food here was infinitely better!

“An Oasis in a Sea of Noodles & Rice”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Perns is a truly fabulous restaurant, an oasis of excellent European cuisine in a sea of rice and noodles! The restaurant is truly European, tastefully decorated, chic is the word. Brian and Phong (apologies if spelt wrongly) are the consummate hosts. The food is superb, well presented, delicious and above all, excellent quality. Of course, you can always find cheaper places to eat, but the old adage was never more true, you pay for what you get! Please give them a try, you will not be disappointed. Choose the Lamb!!!!
