Chiang Mai Wall, Best Restaurants in Chiang Mai

One of the Gates on the Outer Wall in Chaing Mai.

We found the Best Restaurants in Chiang Mai for you to try. Chiang Mai is not lacking a diverse amount of restaurants for travels to the city. 

Northern Thai food is a must for you to try in Chiang Mai. There are many more Chiang Mai restaurants that will give you a taste of food from all over the world. It’s your opportunity to give them a try too.  Northern Thai food, American food, Vietnamese cuisine, Burmese dishes, Italian pastas, and Indian cuisine too. There were many we could not try because there far too many restaurants and not enough time. Chiang Mai restaurants have some of the best food in the world, and Chiang Mai food can be great for the budget too compared to many other cities.

Below is an Assortment of Chiang Mai Restaurants that Travel Food & Health Recommends after dining there

Best Restaurants in Chiang Mai

Duke’s Grill & Bar – American Food – Chiang Mai at The Night Bazaar

These ribs are to die for!! Tangy sauce, not sweet, not hot, but very tasty. The meat didn’t just fall off the bone, but when you bit into it, it melts in your mouth.  Asia does pork right, and I don’t think you could find any better pork ribs any where, and no antibiotics here in Thailand. Onion rings were good too, not heavy but more of a light taste to go with the ribs.  Again, these ribs were something else. The first thing I finished were the ribs, and I had pizza too which was very good as well…but the ribs mmmmm. Read more about their food here.  Or go to Duke’s website

Tawa Bistro – Desserts, Thai, Pizza & Hamburgers

This was an afterthought one night after having dinner at Tawa Bistro. It ended up being one of those desserts to die for!!! Great cool refreshing ice-cream on a sultry night in Chiang Mai together with raspberries, peanuts, all imbedded in pastry with a cookie in the back.  This was perfect because it hit the spot and the cookie offset the soft textures with a crunch!  Read about their Hamburger here

Warorot Market Food – Asian Papaya Salad

This place is a little hard to find, but we found that this was the best Papaya Salad in Chiang Mai. Go to check out how to find this little stand and enjoy the Warorot Market where you find all kinds of goods and foods, it’s an experience.  If you are facing the Papaya stand go try out some of the food on the left side, its different and very good as well.  To find the Papaya Stand go to this link

Taj Mahal Indian Food Chiang Mai

Too bad the Food was so good because we were disappointed with the cooperation from the management. We were over charged for the food that was ordered… Management could have been much nicer considering…Won’t go back there!
