We have been here many times since the restaurant openrd years ago. They serve fantatic fish dishes and everything is presented in a delicious manner. Try the seabass with mango salsa or duckbreast with passionfruit. Always worth a visit.

The morning glory and green curry were great. The fried fish in red curry sauce was the best - absolutely delicious!

This hidden gem has an incredible chef and a creative menu; the food's presentation is like you'd get in an expensive place. Both Western and Thai dishes are offered. It looks like your typical Thai storefront restaurant, but is anything but.

This restaurant has very good food but is rarely full. This is perhaps due to the owners poor taste in decor but if you can get past this the food is very good. The service is quite fast which is unusual for Chiangmai.

Ate here once but had beers there a few times. I had the caesar salad which was really good but doesn't come with meat so maybe add that on. It was a little heavy on the dressing also but I like that personally. The club is really nice also.

We visited Spoon de Best in June 2016. It is a nice restaurant and very friendly staff. Having read the reviews here I expected better - the Pad Thai was average at best. Maybe I chose badly

We'd seen mixed reviews, but the menu looked good as we walked past on the way to find a bar for a beer so this was a possibility. We came back later and the food was great and also the cocktails...try a pink lady! Family run, and attentive service. Our experience was very good.

We first visited this restaurant back in 2014 and went back in March. The food is amazing, the prices are reasonable. The staff are very nice. Differently worth a visit for either lunch or dinner.
