Good food and great service, my wife and I strolled down walking street, looking for a certain dish that is famous in the northern part of Thailand, and we found it here. It wasn’t exactly traditional Khao soi but it was delicious nonetheless. They also...good substitute for chicken for tofu.More

Delicious food and a warm and friendly welcome. Breakfasts are very good and huge! Coffee is excellent too. We decided to try dinner there last night as the menu looks delicious and it was excellent. I had the chicken burger and fries and my husband...had the cheeseburger. Both were scrumptious and cooked perfectly. Good music (not too loud and a brilliant playlist) friendly staff and delicious fruit shakes too. Garfield is a brilliant member of the team who is helpful and hardworking and it was lovely chatting with him, he chats as he works and is an asset to the team. I can see why this place gets such good reviews, it’s vibrant with good food and drinks and even when it’s busy the service is fast, efficient and you feel so welcome. Lovely place to spend an hour or two each day.More

I am sorry, but we do not have air conditioning. But we have a grass roof and plenty of fans, including ceiling fans, and that keeps the restaurant from getting too hot. Hope to see you soon!
