Much enjoyed the alfresco experience that included welcoming and friendly service, a local dance presentation and good food.

Actually, the food was very good but there were some errors, due in the main to poor English on the part of some staff. This resulted in mistiming of a course and a mismatch on spiciing that resulted in one person receiving a dish that was far dicier than specified and the other getting a dish that was under-spiced. At least the latter could be easily rectified.

So, the soft shell crab course was too spicy though the crab was tasty but small. By contrast, the almost bland green mango salad needed more zip to get close to the medium spice level requested.

The spicy northern Thai chicken soup was delicious with succulent, moist chicken and this had a role to play later.

For main courses we tried a smoked duck arrangement that was listed under curries. It was rated as excellent. Meanwhile a beef, yellow curry soup with egg noodles was great in taste, apart from the beef that was stewed and had too much fat on it. The staff rescued the situation by re-starting this dish so now it was with the known-to-be-good chicken. Now it was delicious.

The desserts included a wonderful mango and sticky rice and an interesting chilled water chestnut concoction that was very tasty.

Apart from the mishaps it was excellent, but it can only score as very good

The food was simply amazing with creative recipes such as the lichis and longans stuffed with shrimp in red curry and coconut milk sauce or the pomelo salad !
The all teak wood private lounges or terrace are magnificent, we had such an amazing time it was out of a fairy tale !

We travelled to Chiang Mai in late October and visited 'The Grand Lanna' which is a lovely restaurant in a beautiful lush setting. The food is great and the atmosphere and staff are lovely. The surroundings are elegant and they have Thai Dancers performing show while you eat.

I had an amazing dinner here recently. The signature guava salad was divine and the khao soi super delicious. The show starts at about 8.00pm so time your reservation to coincide. Mosquito repellent is provided!
