“A very popular dinner spot by the river”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

My husband and I always visit Good View when we are in Chiang Mai. It's a great place to go with friends but it can get crazy busy, especially during the New Year period. Expect long waits for a table if you haven't booked. Yes, it's busy, but I've never had a problem with the staff there. They looked after our table attentively and brought food relatively quickly. The dishes are quite decent Thai food - it's best to order several dishes and eat them family style. The cocktails are nothing special - best to stick to beer or whisky and enjoy the (sometimes loud) band. Get there early to get a table by the river and enjoy the ambience of the Ping River.

“Great atmosphere, nice view”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Outside desk on the river, or inside with the live music. Both nice bit inside was noisy so we chose outside. This place was buzzing. It's a large restaurants and the servers communicate with the kitchen with radios so service was quite efficient, food was not brilliant but ok. Worth coming here for the location and ambiance.

“Great setting”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Exquisite setting by the river in the evening - many photo's taken. Far pricier than inner city places with equally good food, although Goodview offers sushi as well (at a price). Service a bit slow sometimes, but all in all a really enjoyable family meal.
