Good Restaurants in Chiang Rai.

Recommended Posts

Having lived in Chiang Rai for over 3 years, it is surprising sometimes to hear of a restaurant you did'nt know about.

One I know , The Family Bakehouse serves the finest steak ever.

Do you know of any good restaurants?

That's soooooo thru

What a crappy food is served in this town

My only hope is that maybe in the new 5 star hotel there will be a decent restaurant

i my self fly to bangkok every month to spoil my self with good food and wine

Wednesday i was at starbuck hotel dont want to talk about the food but the wine prices where very nice

Starbuck hotel!? Are you sure that you don´t confuse Starbucks with Black Canyon at Big C? :o Considering that you spoil yourself in wine in Bangkok it sounds like the Roman toga party lasted a bit longer than expected..

Anyhow, doesn´t Thai food go into the category of good food? In that case Chiang Rai offers alot... such as the several places that we already mentioned earlier in this thread.

Very bright, as a star, Starbright... ring a bell?

AT black Canyon there is no wine list and only horrible food was there last wednesday

The Starbuck is the hotel near edison

Thai food yes fantastic but not in Chiang Rai

THere is eco sha but the food is not always good

there is keaw hon near hai jek that was much better for 6 years ago

The new place with the cows in the front

My wife was there last week with the hole family no one liked the food there where flies every where and the fish was from yesterday

if you want good thai food ask your wife to make it or go to Chiang Mai

If you want good pork , kha moo or moo krop ) go to Seang Sean near the water is a chinees whom is making really good food

good luck

What an unusual combination platter! It looks very good though and prompts me to show you some Indian cooking at home. All spices available from local spice shops, in my case the one in front of the bus station in town. Tandoori chicken.

Do yourselves a favor and try Fumizuki on Phaholyothin Rd. a block or so from the Wiang Inn. Excellent food, even better prices. Tell the owner (Jin) that Lynn sent you.

Not far from the Rim Kok Resort is a new hotel called Phowadol Resort and Spa. Beside it is a restaurant called Bai-Pho. I really enjoyed their International buffet (129 Bt/person). I believe they have the best buffet among all the other Hotel restaurants or coffee shops.

Cooks are said to have been pirated from the Dusit. The restaurant can seat approximately 80 persons - so it is still quite small. Their Maitre D is very professional.

Lots of Thais go to this very unassuming and small restaurant on the way to Haad Chiang Rai (from Denha intersection). Great vietnamese food - Naem Nuang, Morning glory salad (dip-fried in batter), chicken wings, etc. Lots of choices. Picture menu so those of you that can't read Thai can choose by looking at the photo of the dish. Friendly prices.

By chance I went there two days ago. And toybits is correct that they are famous for their naem which they apparently had run out of which also made about 5-6 customers turn around and leave. Good food nevertheless.

Just had noodles and mu satay at Kwiteao Yok Loh out Poh Khun Road (going east from Ha Yaek) across from the seemingly empty Sanam Geela market, almost to Family Bakery. Quite good and reasonable - the best thing since Kwiteao Sip Baht by Disco Road. Also recommendable is Mandaran Pet (Duck) just west of Appy Square (Tops Super near the Mangrai Monument/HaYeak). Very clean.

Interesting is the road name problem - my wife bought an electric cooker from a salesman who came by while I was away. She put down a deposit, got the thing, then found no-one coming for further payments... so we went looking for the office, and found it right by Kwiteao Yok Loh... on Poh Khun Road, which a guy across the street called Saman Geela Road and on the company address is Nong Bua Road... a problem I've encountered before with local maps!

Anyway, the kwiteao soup is delicious, B25 a bowl presented in interesting fashion. There are good specialty dishes too.

That's a nice place. I sometimes stop there after tennis even though I stay away from the satay sticks. Sweets across the street.
