Enjoyed lunch with friends in this lovely setting. There are plenty of trees and umbrellas, so we enjoyed the outdoor area. We also noted the indoor, air-con, option. Everyone in our group was there for the first time and we all agreed we would return. The food was good, portion-size and pricing was fair, and we had decent service.

Had one of our worst Chiang Mai dining experiences here. None of the staff here speak English and they look like they all hate their jobs which is weird considering the extremely high prices of this restaurant. Not sure how they can charge western prices with service like this.

Ordered two pina coladas as we were celebrating. They brought me one and didn’t bring my husband his pina colada for 20 minutes and mine had completely coagulated while waiting for his. We had to ask three different people for his drink and they all had different answers. Not once did they apologize for forgetting his order. Finally they made some lame excuse that drinks are made one by one but why would they make the same drink once and the other one in 20 minutes? It’s the same drink! Their pina colada is not even blended just poured over huge ice cubes.

My food also came out before my husband even got his drink so he just sat their waiting for his pina colada and french toast. We tried to add fruit to his french toast and they had to bring the manager/owner over because they couldn’t understand our request and they forgot the fruit when his order came.

Food is good and ambiance is beautiful but for almost 900 baht for brunch, the service is absolutely not up to par. Shocked they did not even apologize for forgetting his drink.

Dropped in for a quick drink. Immediately taken aback by the setup. Lovely place to eat lunch or have a drink, we had the banoffee milkshake and it was incredible.

It’s a nice place to chill and relax. Not super hot! Tasty food but there’re not many Thai cuisines to choose. Good place for coffee and desserts lovers.
