Good Restaurants in Chiang Rai.

Recommended Posts

On approaching the traffic lights at Den Ha from the market direction , on the right hand side of the road is a car wash and coffee shop. The Muslim Thai people who own and run it also do CURRY. Beef , Chicken or my favourite LAMB. Served with yellow rice, roti and sweet cucumber side dish and mint relish.

In my opinion the best curry for miles and only about 60 bht for the lamb inc.

Deeeeeeeeelish.

If anyone else misses their surkål I can give them a tip. Go to the market and buy either white or red cabbage. Boil it with a little bit of water and vinegar, salt, whole pepper corns and maybe a bay leaf or two. Basic cooking for the farangs with some spare time, about 30 minutes.

Sounds exciting, boiled cabbage with a vinegary taste. Thanks for the tip Goski. :D

Me too, thanks Goski :D

I tried out the new one next to the veterinarian at San Khong Luang, called 'Steak Lovers'.

Prices inbetween 50 and 100 Baht. Nice ambience, food good.

Had the fish with the white sauce. Little bit too sweet, but absolutly good.

I was on my way to have a pat thai at the Akha ladies place, but they were closed.

And I wasn't hungry enough for Barry's smashing/bombing hamburgers, so I cultivated my experimental mood.

Barry's hamburgers number one,

Rico's hamburgers number two.

So far everybody agrees.

On the way home I picked up a couple of beers and some pays (pai's, pastries) at Tic's, Jason's lovely wife, on the San Khong Luang.

I went to the Chat House before to try their hamburgers, but when I arrived the place was full.

Hi everybody, still there?

Limbo :)

I tried the place last Friday. Very friendly lady and pretty daughter. Kao Man Gai Muslim style was good. On a par with the muslim restaurant just of Tanalai Road next to the mosque. Same quality food, Denha a shade dearer.

The place was empty and I haven't seen anyone eating there whenever I pass by.

They said they had Wi-fi and they gave me the password. Couldn't get a signal, they said the transmitter was in their house, I think not a good output although it was quite near.

Where the Akha Ladies place? I like Pad Thai for lunch! Can't stand bergers!

Try the soups at the Chat House Tom Yum and Tom Kah Gai are delish, The breakfasts are still good, English Brekie with fresh coffee -80 baht, nice friendly well run place.

Went to "Steak lovers" with my family. I had the fish, wife - pork streak with tasty sauce and our boy had a good size chicken steak. All delish, none was tough as it is so often in Thai Steak places.

Agree, nice ambience and very pleasant couple running it. Cost just over 200 baht for the three of us.

Of course you know the place that engages the waitresses with the most beautiful belly-buttons in town, the restaurant at this little lake, with the music playing on a raft that slowly moves over the water, Kumchaonang, Soi 6 of Sang Kong Luang, famous for its seafood and fish.

Let's say that you went there with friends that are allergic to the view of belly-buttons. So you go out of the place, go to the left, pass the estate of Khun Kaj, the owner of the only Rolls Royce in town (a Corniche cabriolet) and reaching the T-crossing at the end of this soi the ladies run their restaurant on the right corner.

If they would be closed, continue to the right, take to the left 'on top' of the road (crossing Wat Doi Kwai) and you will find Barry's golf course at your right after five hundred meters.

As we all know, Barry and Rico make the best ones in town. Hamburgers with french fries of course!

Limbo :)

I'd like to recommend a place we ate at tonight.

Just off the corner of route 1211 and Sankhongluang Road heading towards the hospital on your right. (The first set of lights coming into town on the old CM road).

Great garden setting, we had a couple of starters, green curry chicken and sweet and sour shrimp then a platter of big bbq shrimp for 3; 2 large Leo beer for the visitor, soda waters for me and the Mrs for a total of around 750B.

The staff were young and enthusiastic rather than professionally skilled... we had to ask for the bill twice, and the visitors eyes nearly fell out of his head when he saw a couple of the mini-skirted "hostesses" :)

Agreed, there are cheaper places around but this is worth a look for a special meal.

It is the new style of Thai owned steakhouses: clean, new, well designed interiors and food that tickles not only the palate but is a pleasure for the eye as well (sorry for my English).

And this in combination with polite, adequate and efficient service. At very modest prices as well.

I love places like "Steak Lovers" and it feels good to support young and dedicated Thai entrepreneurs.

Chiang Rai seems to be lacking more that a few decent Farang eating places. :)

If you saw the size of some of the local farang here, you would disagree about that statement.

Some of the better places are disguised with only Thai writting to keep out the farang.

Hello my friends

You are right about Farangs in Chiang Rai and do suggest to the owners of Better places for Menus in English then welcome all Farangs. Remember most of farangs are very nice. Only few Farangs are ugly. Farangs allow Thais to earn their living in Farang countries...some even own business and homes... I myself was able to live in Farang country for so many years...thanks for posting your honest opinion. My take.

Hi,

Can you pls advise the location of this Steak lovers restaurant. It sounds like just the place for me. Moving to Chiang Rai in about 2 weeks from now.

Thanks

Tim
