Here are 7 great restaurants in Riverside:
A trendy place offering Asian fusion cuisine and a live jazz band, with a healthy wine list and cocktail menu.
The Good View
Set by the River Ping with—you guessed it—a stunning view, this place is an institution in Chiang Mai, thanks to a great house band and a menu featuring Thai, Japanese and International dishes at reasonable prices. Sit inside or out.
Serving fine French food with a river view, Le Crystal has a walk-in wine cellar, a second story with a better view and a garden seating area. On the last Saturday of the month, they offer a “world buffet.”
Comedara Restaurant and Art Gallery
Offering traditional Thai food, with works by local artists hanging on the wall (and for sale), Comedara is set in an old colonial house with a variety of dining areas. Some have river views and some do not.
The Gallery combines a store full of local handicrafts with upscale dining. Try the curries or the seafood dishes.
The Puri Punn
Both a five-star hotel and a restaurant, the Puri Punn is festooned with antiques, from the flatware to the tablecloths. The food is primarily Thai, with some international dishes.
Vieng Joom On Teahouse
With its pink façade and parasols, Vieng Joom On is evocative of a fairytale. It offers sandwiches, pastries and cakes—all made in-house—and a playroom upstairs for children.
