BAA BAA Black Cafe

Reviewed By Helen C - Hong Kong, China

We usually buy multi-grain bread from this cafe. Last night we went for dinner. Atmosphere is better day time than evening. We arrived at 7pm. It is already late in Thailand and we were the only one in the restaurant. We have ordered grilled veggie, cabbage with fish sauce and mushroom with basils. All fresh and tasty. Desert was so-so. We ordered chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. If you are in Mae Rim area, it is a good choice instead of going to Mae Rim plaza all the time!

Sala Cafe

Reviewed By aslimversgwm - Chiang Mai, Thailand

This cafe restaurant set deep in the lush countryside near Mae Rim is a fabulous discovery. Occupying a delightfully designed, traditional Lanna style site it is a real eye opener and an architectural gem.
The welcome and service by the attractive staff adorned in traditional dress is impeccable.
There are a variety of places to sit and relax, both inside and out all with interesting views of the cafe and surrounding countryside.
There is a wide selection of coffees, teas and super cakes and pastries. If you want a full meal there's also a large menu of Thai and Western dishes.
I particularly liked the roast leg of duck with home made orange sauce and salad but there is much else to choose from and my several friends have all fully enjoyed whatever they've chosen on numerous visits.

Arbusto italian house & thai kitchen

Moved from down town Chiang Mai, Wat kate area to the natural place, Doi saket area, just 20~30 minutes by car. Open everyday 8:00am~10:00pm. Full service with home made italian food & thai healthy food. Completely with coffee, tea and bar.

Reviewed By EvaKing - Bangkok, Thailand

We stayed at Tao Garden, a friend strongly recommended the Italian restaurant--Arbusto, about less than 10mins walking distance. The place is very cute and neat. We ordered dishes were all very yummy: ox tongue melt in the mouth. snapper with black Oliver, the snapper is crunchy. Make sure leave some space for dessert: Tiramisu and coconut ice cream with roti are must try.
This is one of the best Italian food in the area. The price is very reasonable and portion is very generous.
It's open 8:00 to 20:00, 7 days, strongly recommend.

The cutest restaurant I have been to so far in Chiang Mai. Amazing Italian food and an awesome staff. Small kitchen is right in the dining area. Takes time but that’s why the food is so amazing. Live music and cutest owners, get here early though not many tables!

Steak of the Day

Reviewed By answ76

We went on a recommendation of our hotel owner and we're not disappointed. There is a small menu which looks like it changes regularly or a menu of various steaks/ meat/ fish with mash or fries.
The chicken with French fries was delicious and it came with a light mushroom sauce. The house white by the glass satisfied my need for wine in Asia and was also lovely. I managed a desert of coconut ice cream and fruit coulis which was also very tasty.
It isn't the cheapest- about 1400bht for 2adults and 2kids but we all had drinks and Deserts. Very tasty and would fully recommend.

The Hideout

We don't serve fast food at our small, non-airconditioned restaurant. Sandwich, salad and breakfast restaurant serving locally-sourced coffee beans and fresh fruit for smoothies. Our bagels and baguettes are made by a bakery to our high standards and we make our own yoghurt. Use of high quality ingredients and skillful techniques gives you the taste of fine-dining without the fine-dining price. Find out where the flavour is hiding!

Reviewed By Tash W - Cobble Hill, Canada

A friend and I came here for lunch and it was safe to say it’s one of the best meals I’ve had on our trip so far. I had the California chicken Sandwich on baguette which had avocado, cheese, mustard and seasoned chicken. The meat was exceptional, you can tell it’s real and not some sort of deli meat that is often served in Thailand. The bread was soft and fresh as well. The staff were attentive and always made sure to top up our free water!
I can’t say enough positive things about this place. I’ll be back for sure!

Sole & Luna Restaurant and Homestay

Welcome to Sole & Luna restaurant, a place where passion for Italian culture and the careful selection of the ingredients come together in a dining experience in a perfect balance between tradition and new trends. Structure recently planted is spread into three rooms all comfortable and versatile, but each with its dominant feature. The first one you come into, offer you a open space and flowered ambient that is suitable for all occasions, from individual quick lunch torn from their daily routine, to calm or lively table for dinner with friends. The dining room, which recalls the classic Italian tavern with exposed brick walls, it holds out to be a pleasant choice that will welcome you in an intimate space ideal for a pleasant business meeting or for small ceremonies. The next area outside but covered by gazebos and umbrellas, looks rather like an airy but reserved room, thanks to the graceful and elegant blend of classic wooden tables surrounded by the harmonious presence of plants, flowers and soft lighting that allow you to fully enjoy atmosphere. In each setting the background music embraces the reception of pleasant stay

Authentic and delicious Italian cuisine. The owner and his family go out of their way to please your palate and any dietary needs. I really appreciate the gluten free options. If you aren't needing to be gluten free, you'll be lucky to enjoy their home-made pasta noodles made on premises. One of my favorite places to eat whenever I'm here in Chiang Mai area. I'm in love with the sun-dried tomato pesto!!! Yum!!!
