Good Places To Eat In Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Hard to find for a tourist, or even a local, but the restaurant at Ban Wang Tan (between the airport and Hang Dong) is an excellent restaurant with very reasonable prices.

On a large deck overlooking their own pond with swans and fountains, a very clean olympic-sized pool where you can take a dip, live music every night, very friendly and efficient staff, food to die for...

Don't try to find it on your own. Tell the Tuk-tuk driver Ban Wang Tan Restaurant and have him wait for you (or buy him/her dinner)...

"Food Corner" restaurant in Suntitam. Hard to find (when you get the the 5 way intersection from the Wat Suntitam 3 way intersection take a right, it is the 2nd road down, take a left then on your left)

Ok. The 2 people that bother to read this will be very happy people indeed...

BEST THAI FOOD IN CHIANG MAI

Quite a claim. What kind of Thai food? Central, northern northeastern, southern? What's particularly good about it? We gourmands want to know ...

Just normal Thai food I guess. Not issaan or nothern thai. Some suggestions there:

Pad See U- My vegetarian friends say its the best they have had in Thailand!

Yellow curry Rice with fried chicken- my favourite dish there

Yum Kai Dao- with pork. a little pricey but excellent

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The woman who cooks is just really talented at making food.

Also at that interecetion is "the most famous thai-style ice tea/coffee/drink stand in Chiang Mai" accourding to my girlfriend. Always busy. Always good.

Suntitam is a gold-mine for those in the know.

For price, service, decor and overall decent quality, I like Fuji Restaurant in Airport Central Plaza for Japanese food.  I ate in the one in BKK as well and the quality is consistent.

Love Fuji too...

BUT got the worst case of food poisoning in my intire adult life from the steamed mussels w/garlic...absolutly ruined my appetite for that dish possibly for good...infact just thinking back on it now makes me feel like throwing-up again.

Beware of any seafood, especially shellfish, at restaurants far inland such as Chiang Mai...I won't be eating that again ever!

If you like Fuji, give Zen Japanese restaurant a try in the Airport Mall too. Food is just as good or better, but I believe their menu selection is larger. Its on the back side of the mall across form KFC.

Socalbro: Heartily agree about Zen. Ate in the one in Pattaya last month and it is better than Fuji. Will try the one in Airport Plaza over Fuji next time. The sushi bar prominently displayed in Pattaya seemed to set the tone. I think I remember the Zen here likewise arranged.

Qaulity of the food is great and the presentation is quite elaborate. The one in Pattaya had an interesting seating setup, normal table configured as a box for your feet without shoes to hint of the Japanese custom.

I found Kitchen Hush (I had the name backwards), cool two-story wooden house near Floral Condos. I liked the atmosphere, like a neighbourhood eatery in the TKY burbs. Food was OK, nothing spectactular, middle-of-the-road Japanese cuisine. Still looking for good Japanese food in Chiang Mai. Have tried both Zen and Fuji, thought Zen was better but nowhere near as good as the Zens in Bangkok, not sure why.

"Gohan Tei" on the Siam TV soi.

Best and cheapest Japanese food in Chiang Mai.

Many japanase locals eat there and I bring friends that visit from japan to eat there.

The Thai girlfriend even loves it. The owner is a great guy from Issaan who has been cooking Japanese food for almost 20 years at various high class restaurants around Thailand. Decided he could do it better and cheaper at his own place.

Jeez, I cant believe that no one has mentioned Mike's hamburgers near the moat.

I think it is the best hamburger in Thailand. I live in Bkk and Mikes is usually one of my first stops when I visit Chiangmai.  You have to tell the chef-gals to hold the cheese until they they serve the burger else the cheese melts and has no taste.  Mmm looking forward to my next visit in March.  I wish there was a branch in Bangkok.

I agree with you.. I love Mike's hamburgers

Best hamburger in Thailand! :o Worth every bite!

Tasty assemblage at Mike's but the beef is pretty tasteless. Much better, IMO, are the seven different kinds of grilled burgers at Chiangmai Saloon. Give 'em a try if you haven't.

BTW I just heard that Mike no longer owns Mike's Burgers. He sold it with plans to open a Mexican resto, so the story goes.

Interesting. So far I havent seen any good Mexican in CM, hope the rumour is true and that Mike knows his enchiladas as well as his burgers.
