The food was superb beautifully present and tasted just as good . Would recommend to anyone passing to call in A bit out of the way on the main drag but well worth the effort.

We went here for dinner after receiving a recommendation from someone at our cooking class. Food was great and service was awesome. Seafood was great. A nice touch by having insect repellent on each table. The free fruit platter after dinner was a nice touch.

Description
Hill Tribe Restaurant was opened in 2008. Its chef and owner comes from the area of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand and therefore Hill Tribe Restaurant does not only offer excellent and genuine Thai food but it also introduces its guests to a traditional and unique North Thai dining experience.
Families with children are welcome - we have special dishes for kids in our menu.

Reservations for Khan Tok (north Thai dinner) recommended.
