We visited this restaurant with friends who now live in Chiang Mai and found the food excellent with an extensive menu. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Dining by the riverside was very pleasant, a perfect location.

The food was good at this place, but not great. All the food had too much sugar. And they were dishes that I can try to replicate at home, which means these were not exceptional dishes. The place seemed to be so aware to want...More

Dear Valued Customer, we are sorry to hear that you didn't find the food at Paak Dang up to your expectations. Most Thai dishes will have sugar added which is why at every noodle shop you will see sugar as part of the condiments on...More

Not easy to reach, on the river, but it is really worth to go. , Perfect location, nice place, god food, kind staff and beautiful food presentation. Honest prices, they will be happy to call a tuk-tuk for going back to the town.

I ate here with a date. It's a very romantic place with a nice view on the Ping river. The dishes served are very tasteful. A little bit on the expensive side but worth it

This restaurant is managed by a Singapore's family in a extraordinary way, the numerous staff is directed in every action as an orchestra director. Obviously the direct consequence is that the service is impeccable and that the food is perfectly served, selected and cooked. Here...More

Set on the Ping River, Paak Dang offers a beautiful dining experience in a 2 story Lanna Style Teak Wood house. We serve authentic Thai food that will tickle and tantalise the tastebuds of both the Thai local palate and our friends from all over the world. The open concept kitchen run by Chef Pay and led by Chef K-Jin offers a full Thai menu with something to suit each and every single person. Chef Pay will also be able to cook up something on special request subject to the availability of our ingredients - all freshly bought from the local markets daily. Paak Dang has also been set up with a mission and vision - to provide employment to the less privileged from the neighbouring villages and hilltribes and currently has a team of more then 20 staff catering to a 60 seat restaurant. With a wealth of experience between them, the owners of Paak Dang, K-Jin & K-Lin both work hand in hand to equip their staff with many important life skills. Open for dinner daily with a serene and beautiful setting on the Ping River. Reservations highly recommended for the best tables by the river. Come see the sunset, enjoy the tranquility of the river and have an unforgettable dining experience at Paak Dang.
