We came in here on a whim, as we had been searching for somewhere to eat and couldn't be bothered walking any longer. From the outside this place doesn't look anything special and the decor might look a bit outdated, but the food was delicious and very reasonable. We enjoyed the food so much we came back a second time... More

Went for dinner and was underwhelmed overall. Ordered morning glory, red curry, northern Thai sausage, rice and lemonade. Everything came at intervals of about 5+ minutes starting with the morning glory which was surprising. The rice was a very small portion. No dipping sauce or peppers, shallots and ginger for the sausage which we've gotten at every other place it's... More

Thai food doesn't get more authentic than that. Prices are reasonable. Service is good, the place is clean. Amosphere is quiet and comfortable. Food ranges from pretty good to great. I can't say every dish I ate there was the best Thai food I had in my life, but I can say that: I was never disappointed by a dish.... More

We waled along the Nimman road from the Maya centre trying to find a nice Thai restaurant. The restaurant is in an old building directly on the street and has an old colonial feel to is with high ceilings and fans. There are also antique clocks on every wall and table cloths. The good food was served quickly as was... More

We dined at Hong Tauw Inn on a rainy evening following recommendation from our hotel. With a good selection of local northern Thai cuisine as well as the popular thai favourites, the food was very nice. We tried a local pork curry, stir fried sunflower greens and a snakehead fish stirfry. The restaurant is cute with a collection of grandfather... More

This is a restaurant you can’t afford to miss when visiting Nimmanhaemin. All the dishes are very authentic & full of flavour. Highly recommend the Narm Phrig Long-Reu which is a dip of very rich flavor &layers. The deep fried shrimp cake is phenomenal. Be curious when ordering in this restaurant (don’t just stick to fried rice/curry) & you won’t... More

A serene, comfortable oasis on the chaotic Nimmenhaemin Rd. A restaurant that has existed for many years, serving a large variety of traditional Thai dishes, always fresh and well prepared. Moderate prices for quality food. Service is good with a friendly and accommodating staff. One of my favorite and frequently visited restaurants.
