I had my first meal in Chiangmai here. I ordered Pad Thai and it was bland, dry and tasteless. The service was pleasant. Beside the point but a born again Christian came and joined me??!!

Food quality was disappointing. Small portion and slow in service even though it was not very busy when we were there.

The best things about this place are that it is not crowded, clean restaurant, good food, cheap without losing the quality of food, good service and have fan room that closed for non smoker. It is on the highway and near Thapae gate.

Had northern thai pork curry and kao soi, both delicious. Would recommend sharing a northern thai h'ors d'oeuvres too, very interesting. Portion sizes were sensible, so space for dessert, hooray! (Or one of the exciting-sounding salads) You absolutely have to try the pumpkin custard for...More

The ambience there was great. They have aircon inside which is great as many restaurants in a similar price bracket do not. We had the mixed platter of northern thai starters, which, for 80 baht was great value. I highly recommend it if you want...More

This place has a fantastically intimate atmosphere, is decorated very tastefully and has lovely staff/owners. It doesn't seem to be plagued by throngs of tourists even though it is across the moat from a very busy area. The food is far superior (especially Thai food)...More

The Moat is a cozy restaurant/bar located, as the name suggests, beside the moat that encloses Chiang Mai's Old City. We serve a huge variety of Northern Thai, Central Thai, international and vegetarian dishes (over 300 items on the menu!) so drop by for a big breakfast fry-up or a fiery tom yam! Plenty of drinks including fresh fruit juices and shakes, beers, wines and cocktails. Newspapers and magazines to browse, live sports on Satellite TV.
