This is one of the better, more authentic northern Thai restaurants in Chiang Mai. We got the northern pork curry, Khao Soi and mushroom salad. The curry and salad were incredible. The Khao Soi was very good, but I have had better in the city....More

Its reputation is far higher than the quality it offers. Most of the sauces have been sitting for far too long, the chicken, pork, fish are all overcooked, and the soup bases taste artificial. The service is inattentive.

Their Khao Soi is incredible. I've tried this dish at many restaurants in Chiang Mai, so far theirs is the best in the city. The first night I went there they were closed for no apparent reason. Fast and friendly service. We are definitely returning.

This restaurant evidently has been in operation for many years. The location is very handy, but it just doesn't feel very clean and the food we had was rather bland and overcooked.
