We tried the 6 course desgustation dinner. The restaurant is in a teak wood building surrounded by rice paddy and lovely Thai architecture. Make sure to be there early to catch the sunset and explore the hotel grounds. The dinner was well presented, though the taste was so-so. Maybe my expectation was too high. Enjoyable evening .

My girlfriend and I enjoyed the food and service there. Every single bit made you feel like you are Ego, an imperious and acerbic food critic in Ratatouille movie. We enjoyed our dinner there. It was also very romantic date for us.

I have had many dinners at the Farang Ses: it is possibly the prettiest restaurant in the world. Architecture is stunning but the comfort and the service are at the same level: royal. And I forgot the view, rice terraces and water lilies... The food is totally French made by a gifted French chef, who as always when the food... More

Not on the menu. Not only did they make it without fuss. It was an excellent version. The food itself is quality French fair set... More

We went to this restaurant simply because when you stay at Dhara Dhevi you pretty much get stuck with the 4 restaurants on the premises. There is nothing else close by unless you go to the city to eat ; which we did happily. The resort is beautiful and the staff attentive but that is where it all ends... The... More

We suddenly think of having Franch cuision for dinner in Chiang Mai. We found this restaurant in the Dhara Dhevi Hotel and seems they have good reputation for French cuision. The decoration of the hotel architecture is very beautiful. Actually it is traditional Lanna style architecture, the hotel itself is an site seeing attraction as well. Back to the restaurant,...

We visited Farang Ses while staying at The Dhara Dhevi for four nights. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and we enjoyed listening to the pianist whilst we are. He was really excellent. We decide to go for the 5 course tasting menu which turned out to be absolutely delicious and great value. All staff were extremely helpful and the... More

Farang Ses is probably the most expensive restaurant in Chiang Mai, we see it as a place to celebrate special occasions. The setting is beautiful almost magical. The food and service are excellent, especially the Canadian lobster and the chocolate mousse. The duck was just OK. They have a good wine selection and the night we were there for our... More

Amazing service, delicious food (the scallops, stuffed chicken and chocolate soufflé were sublime!) and great ambience. It was a special occasion and the staff pulled out all the stops. As we've come to expect with the Dhara Devi, the service was exceptional and we felt like we had our own personal waiter. There was a nearby concert going on which... More
