Why Did You Choose Chiangmai ?

Recommended Posts

Backpacked around Asia.

Settled down in Samui. In Samui people love your money and ripp your off all the time. After 1 and 1/2 year I moved up to CM since I liked the weather, not big as BK and that people dont try to ripp you off. They are also much more friendly here and you have an big airport. I love CM and I dont regret my desicion that I moved up here.

Cheers

Michael

To be quite honestly with you, I chose Chiang Mai because of The Duke's Restaurant. I went in there a couple of times and the manager made me feel so at home. I have been to many restaurants in Chiang Mai but I have to say , check it out!

:D:o

You are having a laugh or you are the owner...one of the two :D

I did check it out last week with some friends and I have to say it was good .....great burgers, will try something else next time!!

TP

Yeah, just having a laugh.

I came to Chiang Mai because of the ladies. There should be a poll.

Hmmm lets see what should the choices be;

The chix

The climate

The atmosphere

The inexpensive cost of living

The Duke's Restaurant :o

OK lets vote guys :D

I came for the chicks.

I stayed because of the Duke's! :D

:D:D

If you had the dose of sh1ts I got from the Dukes last week I'm sure you wouldn't be so quick to recommend the place :D

I have been to the Duke's almost every day for the last 3 months and have had no problems at all. The same goes for many of my friends.

I have one buddy who complains about getting the "sh1ts" in every restaurant that we go to ( he hasn't been to the Duke's as he is back in England now but he's always complaing about the buffet at the Sheraton/Weston), but no one else has gotten ill.

Maybe you had bad luck or maybe it's your immune system, but I wouldn't guess that it is the restaurant's fault. :o

What is it with you UG and all this <deleted> about the Duke's? You and Bigeater make a good pair. Are you both getting free meals to plug the restaurant? If you're not, I would suggest you drop all the inane remarks as they have run their course.

I came here for my health!

I've worked with food for a long time and have taken enough environmental health courses to trace any food poisoning to a particular meal pretty accurately.

It certainly wouldn't stop me going back - TIT and working with food in this heat is a nightmare. The Dukes is good, but it's not as great as certain members proclaim. I think TGI Friday back in Scotland is much better - but I'm grateful for anything half-decent here.

What would help improve his place is some draught beer (hint, hint!)

I'm sure it is, but we are in the middle of Southeast Asia in a second class city with second class restaurant suppliers.

The Duke's is excellent under the circumstances. :o

I guess that even trolls have opinions but yours get awful boring.

Can't you think of anything new to whine about? :o

Let's just say I didn't move to CMai and stay for two years, just to eat the Thai food there. I used to enjoy BLT sandwiches at Outback Cafe south of Thae Pae gate (that's a plug for John and the guys). And Burger-King when I was...doing .... sociological research behind the Night Bazaar. And Sizzler, yes! And the better Italian restaurants, like Mi Casa (the one on the outside of the klong). What's that restaurant on Thae Phae road just before the moat - JJ's, or BJ's? Good food. Oh, and the S&P sit down restaurants are great for their club sandwich.

So, I moved myself to the opposite end of the world, to get Western food....there must be at least one other compelling reason.....cheap rent, that's it.
