Traveler’s Reviews of the Riverside Bar and Restaurant, Chiang Mai


What a pleasant experience

Rating: ★★★★★ 

I had made a reservation at the Riverside Bar and Restaurant for my fiance’ and her family while in Los Angeles. I emailed the owner and asked if he could have a cake made with writing in Thai, asking my fiance’ to marry me. Dinner was excellent on the river cruise, and the cake was wonderful. My fiance’ was ultra excited when the cake arrived. I recommend the dinner on the river cruise, very highly.

Very pleasant

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

Have been to the Riverside Bar and Restaurant each time I visit Chiang Mai which is once or twice a year. You will have to book for the weekends as it is very popular located on the bank of the Ping River. If you are lucky enough to be in Chiang Mai for Loy Krathong festival in November, this is a great place to enjoy the evening. Food was excellent, good service considering how busy it was and quite reasonable considering its location. try not to get a table too close to the band, as it can be a little difficult to talk as it is a bit noisy.

If you haven’t been here…

Truly a Chiang mai treat! Fun and lively mix of Thai and western patrons. Live music Great food and friendly staff. Also be sure to try there river cruise, the food is great and the lights and sounds of the activities along the river add a new feeling to the city. Just a wonderful time.
