Went for dinner with friends and loved the ambiance, friendly service, attention to detail, food presentation, and last, but not least, the delicious food! It's a lovely place to sit inside or out and just take in the lush surroundings. I thoroughly enjoyed both visits and highly recommend it for anyone who wishes to treat himself to a wonderful dining experience!

This place is a little oasis tucked in the back streets of Chiang rai but opens up as soon as you walk in with a double story American driven house with loads of character, heaps of tasty food & a surprising beer selection, I think the owners get really involved in here which I love to see, you can tell by the offerings each week..BANOFFEE pie Mmmmm washed down with an ice cold ale n macchiato to follow.. Gotta check this place out

Loved this place, again it a little dearer than most places, but the service and location is amazing. Right on the river. I had the pasta and it was pretty tasty, my wife had a Thai dish and she did not enjoy it. But she enjoyed her milkshake.

Chivit Thamma Da is an experience and a must when visiting Chiang Rai. The cafe's riverside charm is palpable. This coffee house is perfect for a special occasion or even just an afternoon treat. The Thamma Da salad is delightful from the gingery dressing to the assortment of seeds. The fish and chips are the best in Chiang Rai and the Japanese fried chicken is delicious and both portions are quite generous. They have a pretty good cocktail list and offer craft beers (for a steep price) every once in a while. One negative aspect is they are only open until 8:00pm - they do stay open later on holidays - so go there early!! The owners are quite lovely as well!

This restaurant is European managed and it shows, it is a little bit out of town but the hotel kindly dropped us there. We were a little disappointed with the prices and the restaurant was too hot inside.

“Dear Khun Ann, we are very sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Next time you visit please ask Meridian to send you by boat to our pier or call us for a pick up, we are only a couple of minutes boat ride upstreams. April in Chiang Rai is very hot, this week almost 40C which is rare here. We do run our air conditioners the whole day and we are sorry if you felt uncomfortable anyway. If you have time to visit again please do look me up so we can have another chance to make you satisfied. Thank you for your visit and your comments. Nattamon.”
