“A must go in Chiang Mai.”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

One of the best meal and definitely the best atmosphere and service I've had in thailand (I'm a professional chef)
Small family business using fresh organic produces open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Must go.

“Awesome, superfresh food, homely ambience”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

This tiny place has maybe 16 seats and is so small that you need to be on foot, or driving very slowly to find it. The kitchen is at the front, so you can see your food being made fresh on the spot. If you like it incendiary, ask for "Thai Spicy".

Servings are huge, so don't order too much, the beer cold and the owner (Kim) will make sure you're looked after and having fun. I even scored a free beer, for some reason.

Book ahead as it always seems full.

“Fantastic gem”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Hidden away on a side street/ alley, this fantastic gem serves delicious home cooked meals right on the spot. Fresh ingredients are delivered to the restaurant several times through out the day. Owner is very friendly and passionate about what she does. She provided us with free fresh fruit for dessert. Then while eating her own meal for dinner, she offered us a taste of it.
