If you're looking for authentic, delicious Thai food with a great atmosphere and friendly staff, theres a cute little restaurant called China Inn Cafe & Restaurant. The food is definitely worth your money. You would mainly dine in the front part of the restaurant, but...More

Great food. Especially the spicy mango salad, Tom Yum soup and chicken massaman curry. Highly recommended and great value. Service a bit slow, but worth the wait.

Great little cafe for lunch. They have nice outdoor shaded seating at the back. We chose to eat here for the special set meals, which were delicious. Great value for 150thb. Flavour some and tasty thai currys, would recommend.

We visited China Inn for lunch. The ambience is truly charming, the garden is lovely. However, the service is slow and the waiters are not really welcoming. Food is OK. Definitely worth visiting for coffee or juice!
