“you gotta know how to treat your customer--and they do!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We were greeted warmly and graciously by Dash himself and seated in the coolest spot in this very open restaurant (they have bug repellant together with the napkins and the toothpicks--a nice touch). By now I just don't know what to order, just what not to order. I've had Pad Thai enough an all the standard Thai dishes. I asked Dash to choose for me and he did--very successfully. I had the Banana Blossom Salad (95Bat) and my partner ordered the shrimp in garlic and tamarind sauce. Both were delicious. I was brought the stir fry with eggplant and beef for my main while partner ordered the fried rice with tofu, pineapple and cashew. Both dishes went very well together and both were very tasty. My only criticism is that the beef could have been a little more tender but I've noticed, that in general in Thailand, the beef is a little tough (and the beds are hard). Can't fault the seasonings.

We also enjoyed a Mai Tai and Dash's own concoction called a Green Meanie, a sour apple flavoured cocktail. They were both good, not skimpy on the liquor.

The meal, including a bottle of water came to 730 Bat, of which 300 Bat was the price of cocktails.

Dash and his charming mother are doing a super job. Keep it up.

“Deserves its rating and more”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at Dash! B&R our last two nights in Chiangmai. Probably would have eaten there every night if we found it sooner. The owner, Noi Tevis, and son Dash were delightful. So was our waitress, Pawn. The food was great. Had a curry dish, fried rice and spaghetti during our two night visits.
It is very reasonable in price and a nice setting in a back alley. Can be difficult to find but we had no problem fortunately.
Haven't eaten at the other restaurants rated higher, but this is a restaurant that would be difficult to beat. Great food, decent prices and wonderful hosts in a nice setting!!! Can't go wrong!!!

“Must go!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Decided to head to Dash after reading reviews on trip advisor. What a great place! The building is beautiful. We were immediately greeted by the staff who engaged us in conversation. We ordered two dishes and shared both - the stir fried eggplants with pork and the pad Thai. Both were amazing. I've tried pad thai as much as possible across Thailand (a bit of a comparison project) and the one at Dash is the best so far.

We will be doing our best to go back before we move on from Chiang Mai. An absolute must go.

“Best place in Chiang Mai”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Took a cab to the back street restaurant, as a soon as we arrived we were greeted by dash, a very lovely well spoken man.

Our entrees and main meals came out with haste and accompanied by a lovely conversation by Dash and his lovely mother.

During the two weeks we have been in Thailand Dash restaurant and bar has been the nicest and most comfortable place we have eaten

A must try if In Chiang Mai

“Great food and hosts”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We had a great meal here on 18 Feb opting for the spring rolls to share as a starter followed by the red and green curries. Both curries were fresh and beautifully balanced. What stood out at this restaurant was the mother and son team who run it - both took time on a busy evening to talk to diners and offer advice on dishes or local attractions. Due to the popularity, one to book and we heard many diners were repeat visitors.
