Delicious food

Had a great time. Dinner was wonderful - the best we had in Thailand. The food alone is worth the price of a ticket!

We found this a bit too commercialized. While the service is meant to be smooth running, it's also very disruptive. In the 2 hour period there is dinner, photos, settling of checks plus a show to watch. I came out feeling a bit rushed through. The dances were pretty great, the food was nothing to talk about. The most uncomfortable... More

Musicians looked totally bored, the emcee was terrible - but the young dancers were good. Both my husband and I suspected that the dances were not authentic. People started to leave ~30 minutes in to the show. DO your self a service... DO NOT GO!!!

We enjoyed the show very much. We had reservations so were put near the stage, but these seats were the "pillows" on the floor and for us older people it would have been too long to sit that way, so got a table which was farther away from the stage. The food was good, brought in small bowls for us... More

You can sit on the floor or sit at what would the equivalent of a picnic table. Good food served family style. It just keeps coming. No complaints. The dinner "show" started about 8PM. At 8:30 we were ready to leave. The show is too long.

The dinner was excellent, beautifully served, tasty, with character. A really good meal for celebrating birthday as we did. The service was good and the birthday cake of fruit with candles was a pleasant surprise. The show itself consisted of two parts. Part one presented by the professional team was reasonable, the presentation was good although I think Thai culture... More

This was a fun little night that we both enjoyed as a couple. The pickup and drop off service was good and prompt. We were ushered in and had a surprisingly tasty meal with unlimited refills for everything (!!). The seating was good if you get a ground sit and hopefully a good view. The show itself is good but...

Happened to be here as being arranged by a tour company. So, I don't know how much this costs. As I've visited Chiang Mai for the first time, it was OK for me to see the brief examples of culture of northern Thailand. You can imagine in some areas there are this kind of culture centre which show examples. It's... More
