The first thing David explained to us is his lack of kitchen training. However, what he lacks in culinary degrees, he makes up for in people skills.

He employs exceptionally skilled chefs who turn out truly authentic French cuisine. His wait staff operates at Michelin-level standards. David himself takes time to visit every table, and gets to know his customers. He remembers everybody’s name. His children are also charming — he had them ‘in training’ during their school holiday.

The food, as many reviewers have already pointed out, is of a very high standard. The menu would hold its own in any European city, and definitely stands out as one of the best meals I’ve had in my ten years in Asia. The soups should not be passed up — you can order a sampler if indecisive. The beef cheeks were perfectly tender and the osso bucco has a nice earthy flavor. The oysters, though imported, tasted as though they came straight from the French coast that morning.

My only advice would be about the dessert menu. Though the toffee pudding and gelato were both tasty, a crackling creme brûlée would have really finished the night off perfectly. Also consider adding a list of dessert liquors or coffee cocktails.

Here’s to many more great years in your fabulously designed new location, David. See you next time I’m in town.

We had the fortune of visiting David's Kitchen during our short trip to Thailand. We were immediately impressed upon walking in and speaking with David himself before we were seated. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and we will forever remember our visit. David also visited our table during dinner and we chatted about the family atmosphere he creates between his employees and dinner patrons. Stop in for a lovely evening. You won't be disappointed!

Deserving of the best restaurant in Chiang Mai as rated on many websites. The food lived up to our expectations and David's recommended red wine went very well with the food. Also celebrated my girlfriend's birthday here and the staff took note of every detail, wishing happy birthday when we stepped in, printing birthday greetings on the table, gifting her a birthday card from the restaurant and decorating our dessert with birthday wishes. The staff Piano took very good care of us and it was also nice talking to David as he went around to each table.
