Great riverside restaurant with quality freshly-prepared food. Very attentive service with top quality dishes. Maybe not the cheapest by Thai standards but ambiance , overall experience and good causes factor fully compensates.

Went for an intimate dinner with a few friends and was suitably impressed by the nicely decorated restaurant by the river overlooking the early evening moon. The setting was rather romantic. Food was delicious and the waiting staff was very attentive.

We visited Park Dang in February and the food was fantastic! I ordered Pad Se Ew and my husband ordered the Panang Curry, both were amazing. The ambience was was wonderful! A very quaint little restaurant and they had live music. I loved it!

We went here after reading TripAdvisor reviews and also after visiting a similar establishment in Siem Reap last year, where they are helping train young people. We found the food to be good though appetisers came out with the main course! We felt the service was poor considering the number of staff! It took a while for plates to be... More

We visited the restaurant in early March 2017. Getting there was easy, the restaurant is on Uber, and about a 10 minute ride from town. It overlooks the river, very picturesque, and thankfully mosquito control was good! The food was really excellent. We had the flower crab yellow curry (My wife's comment - "I don't usually like yellow curry, but... More

Description
Set on the Ping River, Paak Dang offers a beautiful dining experience in a 2 story Lanna Style Teak Wood house. We serve authentic Thai food that will tickle and tantalise the tastebuds of both the Thai local palate and our friends from all over the world. The open concept kitchen run by Chef Pay and led by Chef K-Jin offers a full Thai menu with something to suit each and every single person. Chef Pay will also be able to cook up something on special request subject to the availability of our ingredients - all freshly bought from the local markets daily. Paak Dang has also been set up with a mission and vision - to provide employment to the less privileged from the neighbouring villages and hilltribes and currently has a team of more then 20 staff catering to a 60 seat restaurant. With a wealth of experience between them, the owners of Paak Dang, K-Jin & K-Lin both work hand in hand to equip their staff with many important life skills. Open for dinner daily with a serene and beautiful setting on the Ping River. Reservations highly recommended for the best tables by the river. Come see the sunset, enjoy the tranquility of the river and have an unforgettable dining experience at Paak Dang.
