I stayed in Chiang Mai for six months, Kad Kafe's dinner buffet was one of my favourite place for dining. Since their price were relatively low as of hotel's buffet and there were very few people which makes the place really comfortable to relax and chill.
The food choices of the buffet line were in variety, they included salad bar, sushi bar, pizza corner, hot items' line, deesert station. The pizza they served was great since they made it when you ordered and they got quite five to six favours that you can chhose from.
The service were good, the staff was polited and efficient. They also had good product knowledge and very helpful at all time.
In a nutshell, I did enjoy my dinning experience there

The lunch buffet at Kad Kafé was included in our 3 day seminar package and we also ate dinner there on the third day which proved to be a far more revealing experience.

During the seminar there really was an exceptional variety of dishes which was a nice surprise. There really was something sure to please anyone including a huge range of hot dishes for meat lovers and vegetarians alike, and cold salad dishes including a spectacularly spicy Green Mango Salad.

I now suspect this great variety was due to guaranteed catering numbers. However with the volume of people passing through at breakneck speed due to time constraints meant the hygiene was not as good as it perhaps could have been.

Out of seminar days the variety was much more reduced, as was the quality. There also seemed to be a number of unmonitored children leading me to wonder further about the hygiene. As a result we never went back after that despite staying at the hotel for a further 2 nights.

On all 4 visits wait staff performed mainly the necessary functional role of cleaning tables, and few spoke English meaning service was virtually impossible. Ice came automatically with the water despite our requests for ‘no ice’. Although our dinner waiter did manage to locate us 4 proper wine glasses for our bottle of red, which was a nice gesture.

Kad Kafé is a good business option for catered seminars where the hotel has guaranteed volume and can plan ahead. But for a general lunch out there are better places to go including Silapa Thai in the same hotel.

I ate at Kad Kafe twice during my 2 months stay in Chiang Mai and unfortunately both times I was disappointed. In both cases, I ordered a glass of house wine and had to ask them to open a new bottle since the one they served me first had been open for several days already and the wine tasted thus sour. Even though the food was good, the service quality was horrendous. The restaurant was almost empty with more than enough waiting staff, but no one would clear away our plates as we helped ourselves to a new course at the buffet. So imagine eating dessert with your salad and main course plates piled up next to you. It also took them about 10minutes to react when we were waving at them to order the bill. Food was ok, but the atmosphere and service not worth the money.
