Fodor's Review

For authentic Lanna cuisine, you can't do better than this simple but superb restaurant. You're automatically served kanom jin (Chinese noodles) in basketwork dishes, with a spicy meat sauce, raw and pickled cabbage, and various condiments. If that's not to your taste, then order the satay moo, thin slices of lean pork on wooden skewers, served with a peanut sauce dip. In the evening every table has its own brazier for preparing the popular northern specialty moo kata, a kind of pork stew. The open-sided, teak-floored dining area is shaded by ancient acacia trees, making it a cool retreat on warm evenings.
