Description: The River market is centrally located on the River Ping and overlooking the Iron Bridge. The Thai-Burmese Colonial inspired building was built with 95% recycled wood and using old traditional construction techniques. The high ceiling adds light and the roof structure was designed for the air to circulate and keep the building cool even on the hottest days. The modern Thai kitchens showcase the food and the talented chefs that prepare it. Everything is cooked fresh using the best ingredients available. To make it a prefect meal we offer a selection of great wines, beers and cocktails chosen to compliment our food. The River Market Restaurant started with the idea of serving great Thai food at reasonable prices using quality ingredients and as a destination for friends and families to get together and share. The portions at The River Market are substantial and the dining area and the tables are comfortably spread out for patrons to stretch out and enjoy. Prices are reasonable.

We tried on Thursday night to dine here but it was full, tonight at the start of the weekend we got there early.

Had delicious starters of green curry roti rolls which just melted in your mouth, along with seared tuna on a bed of green mango salad, both dishes could have been a main as they were a decent size.
The green curry rolls smelt and looked so good half had been eaten before I could take a picture.

We then opted for BBQ prawns with garlic and fried rice RM, the mini ribs with the rice was mouthwatering and the meat fell off the bone.

Fresh Coconut was warm, staff are efficient and the food came fast. Lovely location with a view of the river and metal bridge with its ever changing lights.

river market is located on the banks of the ping river, its ideal for a light lunch or evening meal or just to sit back and enjoy a cold beer looking out over the river - highly recommend the river market

This Restaurant is Big and Very Scenic next to the River, but bring your Mosquito Spray. The Ambience is Great and they have some Good Fish dishes. The Thai food in my opinion is not Real Thai, but made with a Western Fusion Style. Not for me I like my Thai Food to be Authentic. Still worth a visit if you have an open mind as to the Food.

How fantastic to experience such amazing fine dinging experiences for such an inexpensive price tag. Food amazing. Atmosphere even more amazing. Only let down was my strawberry cocktail. Should have stuck to Mojito. Very reminiscent of the Sunshine Coast's Spirit House, but without the price tag. I had the beef salad and was more than satisfied. We shared the macadamia nut pie but was not so impressed. The curry roti rolls as a starter were excellent. Would go back in a heart beat.
