It's not at all hard to find this place- as some other obviously ocularly-challenged reviewers claim- what with the big blue neon sign that says "Spirit House" out front and everything. And yes, it's off the beaten path but since the beaten path is so full of annoying, tattooed gap year Eurotwits there's nothing wrong with that. The Spirit House is a pretty nice yet surprisingly affordable spot to eat and drink at. There are plenty of interesting statues and antiques all over the place and the small waterfall outside is a nice touch. While both the "specials" list and the menu are indeed lengthy (leading me to wonder how all the ingredients they use could possibly be fresh), the food didn't make me ill or anything so it must be verging on okay. It's in a part of Chiangmai that most tourists don't normally visit so just getting there is kind of interesting and although the service is a bit spotty (I think some of the staff there are on work-study programs from one of Chiangmai's many trade schools), there's no reason to get worked up about it. I ate there with a friend of mine and starters, mains, and a drink came to a mere 360 baht each and that's okay given the ambience and general okay quality of the food.
