I had the most amazing birthday dinner at 1921. The staff, especially Ana was so nice and gave us a tour of the secret room. The service was top notch and the food was excellent. My family and I splurged on wagyu steak and many desserts, including a chocolate fondant, yuzu sorbet, and a complimentary birthday cake for us to share, which was beautifully decorated with fresh fruit and flowers. This was truly a magical 49th birthday celebration!

Do not be taken aback by the car entrance. This is a very high end resort, restaurant, and bar. The food is always top shelf. We eat here regularly as we live in Chiang Mai. We stay here once in a while and it is a fabulous resort, very very romantic! The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. If you want the Thai menu, you may have to sit inside, we had the western menu and shared the baby cos Caesar salad with chicken, black cod, raviolis, asparagus etc. if you are not familiar with the 1921 theme, the wait staff are dressed as war time spy assistants. The history of the original building is on the paper menus and the wait staff will explain also. The wait staff are very fluent in English. The resort was preparing the grounds for the New Year's Eve Casino Royale themed party, so the band and dancers were rehearsing before our dinner. When the drums became loud, we told the waitress and she asked them to stop. They did. Just before we asked, a group of German tourists who had just sat down heard the drums and decided to leave, not knowing we asked the waitress to have the drummer stop. Too bad. These tourists missed an excellent meal! All resorts should have the manager figure out the best time for entertainment to practice before the show. While people are eating, conversing, and having romantic meals is not the proper time. However, it took only seconds for the wait staff to have the drummer stop. This is the quality service we expect. We highly recommend this restaurant and a stay at this resort, especially for their outstanding breakfast buffet! The lighting in the evening is exquisite!

Was wanting to try the new menu for a while the steak selection looks promising so finally we made it last night.. What I didn't know is they now have a new rooftop bar "Bubbles" which is fantastic overlooking the river very comfortable seating with great cocktails. (Happy Hours from 5.30pm until 7? Fab!) Upon seated our "secret agent" K'Ann has explained the menu and recommended a local, Thai wine from Khao Yai. I remembered visiting the vineyard some years ago and in my memories it's really high end of quality so we ordered it and so glad we did! Excellent! To start with we had a Caesar salad and the ravioli both full of flavors I can only recommend even as an entrée. The filet mignon and the lamb were spectacular too bad they were out of the pichana will try that the next time around.

They’ve been in business several years. I think 1 point stands out here. I ordered a glass of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc for 390bt, they were out and offered an alternate Chilean for 950. I opted for the local rose at 350. I order 80G Maine lobster and they tried to serve 40G local subway lobster, same price and without mentioning the difference until I called them out. My husband never got his burger with cheese only. An hour and 40 minutes later we left hungry and paid for our wine. I do not recommend this place to anyone

Amazing service and the staff was very attentive! They are able to customize any menu option to your liking. I am very picky and they were able to make the food exactly the way I wanted. The staff is also very patient and will do anything to make sure you have a great experience. This is defiantly a place to try!!!

This fine dining experience is set in the beautifully renovated former British Consulate, at the Anantara hotel, over looking the Ping River. “The Service “ is of course, the secret service in the setting of collecting information in Asia at the time between the first and second World Wars,and therefore the Cuisine is not Thai but European. The beef,lamb,fish and lobster are exquisitely cooked, presented, and delicious. The service by our waitress Bowy and waiter Nat, was attentive without being intrusive, and when asking for advice, was most instructive. If you are looking for superb fine dining in Chiang Mai, then I would highly recommend “The Service 1921”

Everything was excellent. From the welcoming, to the service to the food.. Not to mention the stunning atmosphere and decor. Our waitress Ann was super kind and helpful. We truly appreciate the care and attention given to us by the executive chef David who came especially to advise us on the menu considering our dietary restrictions for both main course and desert. The food was very delicious and finely presented. The special care given to our particular needs was truly heartwarming and made us feel very delighted and pampered. A truly fine and luxurious dining experience that we will always remember. Thank you Chef David, thank you Ann and thanks to the entire team and management of the Service 1921 for an exceptional level of excellence.

The setting is beautiful and the staff was incredibly kind and welcoming. Our favorite was the A4 wagyu. Melt in your mouth yummy and worth the splurge!! The restaurant was also very accommodating of my food allergies—which always puts me at ease and I enjoy the meal 10x more knowing I am in safe hands!!!

Yum yum! Outstanding food and drinks coupled with perfect service, our favourite food on our far east trip to date. Drinks in the downstairs bar pre-dinner were excellent and included in the rate for a suite. We enjoyed delicious starters…tuna, scallops and sous-vide egg. Mains were fabulous, great fillet steak, black cod and vegetarian grilled aubergine with lovely sides and sauces, faultless cooking and beautiful presentation. For desert we enjoyed chocolate fondant with hazelnut ice cream and shared a pineapple tarte tatin with coconut ice cream , accompanied by some excellent coffee….a real treat of a meal with service to match. Theming is also great fun….if you go ask to see the secret room. Thanks to everyone at 1921 for looking after us so well.

What a cool respite from the heat after the wonderful flower festival! Service was impeccable and friendly even sharing a tour of the secret room. Food was fabulous! Husband’s grilled pork chop was accompanied by truffle and porcini mashed potatoes. Perfectly cooked! Caesar salad with chicken was generous in size and creatively plated. Sauces including hollandaise were perfect in consistency. Make it your mission to enjoy this lovely, history filled setting and its fabulous food.

Contemporary but with a little twist of of the past! We were transported back in time to 1921! The ambiance was amazing. The service was first class…the food, contemporary with an amazing choice, I had a fabulous porcini ravioli with a side of thrice cooked chips. I love Thai food but needed something different this evening and 1921 certainly didn’t disappoint. Best ravioli I have had since a little restaurant I found in Chianti about 20 years ago…the kids loved it too…. A large choice from the grill also, it took me ages to decide! For a special experience, ask for the secret room…you won’t be disappointed!!

We came to check out the cool decor of this British Intelligence-themed restaurant. Nestled in the courtyard of the luxury Anantara Hotel (at the former site of the British Consulate), this cozy spot has some great dishes and creative cocktails. We appreciated getting fit in without a reservation and the attentive service of our hosts (but in a subtle way). The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful with some dietary substitutions. The cod and burger were incredible. Take some time to walk around the grounds during your visit.

The location was amazing. The spy decoration on the walls were very cool, and the vibes were great. Next, the food was some of the best I have ever had. The beef tartare and mushroom ravioli for appetizers were so flavorful and delicious. We then split A4 Wagyu. I did not know steak could taste that good. We then all ordered our own steaks and sides, including the strip steak, ribeye, mashed potatoes, and spinach. All of the food was cleared in minutes. The wines were also great, especially the dessert wine, which we paired with the chocolate hazelnut cake, mango dish, and fresh fruit. This place was great and the service was amazing, with the staff showing us around the place and sharing the history with us. I will certainly be back next time I’m in Chiang Mai and recommend anyone to visit this location.

Thailand managed to avoid succumbing to colonialism by effective wheeling and dealing. One legacy of this is restaurant Service 1921 which was the old British Consulate. Built in teak it has the Britisher colonial club feel with lovely views to the river Ping and various elegant rooms full of bookcases, even a secret room and a whiff of James Bond when it was used as a location. It serves good Western food and wine at a price and has top notch service from the staff. Definitely worth a visit even if you can only afford a glass of sparkling water

Very cool atmosphere. The service is impeccable and the food is comes out surprisingly fast. I would highly recommend the bone marrow and the scallops as appetizers. For a steak I would recommend the wagyu picanha it’s a great value and tastes amazing. For a dessert if you like a tart sorbet you gotta go with the Yuzu sorbet.
