Acclaimed traditional restaurant Khum Khantoke has closed after taking a battering from the Covid-19 crisis, Chaing Mai 108 website announced today (June 1).

 

A statement by the restaurant shown on the website said it closed on Saturday (May 30) and its staff laid off. The statement was signed on Friday.

 

Khum Khantoke, owned by Chiang Mai resident Watchara Tantranon, has been in business since December 2000. The place, offering scrumptious traditional fare in a Lanna-styled atmosphere, was popular with both domestic and foreign tourists.

I feel sorry for the staff and performers. It was mostly Chinese tourists that went there, maybe the venue will reopen when they return. There's still Old Chiang Mai Cultural Centre.

A real shame.

 

 

Yes indeed. I have enjoyed several wonderful evenings enjoying the traditional Lanna fare and cultural entertainment here - fortunately before the days of the dreaded Chinese tour parties and "eat as much as you can" buffets!

It's only temporarily closed due to lack of business; not out of business.
