Fine Dining in Chiang Mai – The fine dining capital of Southeast Asia.

Escape to the calm tranquility of Thailand’s northern capital, away from the busy streets of Bangkok. Savour some fine food at restaurants in Chiang Mai, enjoy breathtaking mountain views, wander the backstreets and admire fine teak structures, marvel at monasteries of old with ancient brick stupas. A city so beautiful it has been nicknamed the rose of the north. The modern side of the city is touristy: it boasts golf courses, markets, bars, nightclubs and hotels.

Chiang Mai sees a constant stream of luxury travellers, a healthy expat community and even some affluent locals. To cater to the market the city has built up a portfolio of high end restaurants rivalling any other international city in the world. You will find plenty of elegant eateries serving Thai food as well as an array of other cuisines and fusion food. The five star hotel properties in the city, like Anantara Chiang Mai Resort, also house their share of top-notch restaurants.

Dine riverside, with stunning views of the Ping River, at ‘The Restaurant’ located east of the Night Bazaar. ‘Terraces’ in Mae Rim is an alfresco dining restaurant serving Thai as well as Western dishes, while diners look out over terraced paddy fields. ‘Farang Ses’ is where you will find a sophisticated French meal, while the dim sum at ‘Fujian’ draws guests from far and wide. ‘Chez Marco’ situated on Loi Kroh Road, does a modern take on orthodox French and Mediterranean favourites. If you cannot settle on a particular cuisine but still want a stylish yet slightly quirky afternoon or evening meal, try Ginger & Kafe – The House, in the heart of the city. They serve traditional Thai as well as European. Remember to stop by their quaint gift shop after eating and pick out a candy coloured set of mugs or plates.
