Reviewed July 14, 2014

The riverside location makes this a delightful spot to enjoy tea for 2. All of the tea sandwiches and cakes were made to order and delicious.

“Lovely afternoon tea place”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Same as the Chedi almost next door, they all sharing wonderful river view.But Nakara stands out for its beautiful colonial style hotel and more green around. Great place for a romance afternoon tea with girls or couples

“Heavenly...temptingly close to our hotel!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Probably 100 metre waddle down the lane from the Ping Nakara, through a set of gates......and this surprising oasis opens out in front of your eyes. Beautiful setting on the Ping River, this place is a gem...and whilst it did nothing for our waistlines, we gave in to the temptations of this place only 5 times in 9 days!! The gardens are beautifuily maintained, wit plenty of outdoors undercover seating with water cooled and normal fans used to move the air around.
We were spoiled each time by the lovely Ay, and the other well organised and attentive staff.
It seemed to be the place where the local well to do assembled, groups of ladies got together and lunched, and more than a few business meetings seemed to happen here.
The occasional boat sauntered up the rivere past us...which added to the atmosphere.
The teas, Coffees, Milkshakes smoothies...were all top quality. We ate lunch here once, which was alos very nice...but, brace yourselves for the cakes...they are the speciality. Gave most of them a try between 5 of us in 5 visits. Simplistically, they tasted as good as they looked
Mango Cheesecake, Psiacchio Creme Brule, Apricot Coulis & White Chocolate cake (OMG that was divine), Chocolate Brownie...the list goes on.
Drinks were aound $3-, Cakes around $4 - $5...light luches were around $7-$8
Go there once...& I'll bet you a Creme Brulee you will go back!!
Tell your Tuk Tuk Driver it is behind Ping Nakara....
