Following the recommendations here, we headed to Barrab for an evening meal. Wow! Such fresh tasty food with great service from the knowledgeable owner who really made us feel very welcome. The chef who has been here for ten years also checked in on us....We loved all the dishes we tried: chicken satay, tea leaf salad, chicken wings and the northern Hunglay pork curry. All beautifully presented and freshly prepared. You will not be disappointed if you go to Barrab’s.More

Barrab is a must visit while in Chiang Rai for authentic Northern Thai dishes! The owners are incredibly kind and speak excellent English. Nearly every dish can be made to accommodate vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, or other food restrictions and allergies. The food has great...flavor and is locally fresh with good portion sizes. I highly recommend the Khao Soi, Pad Thai, and Burmese tea leaf salad!More

The menu at the front door seems overwhelming but once inside the owner will explain everything. The owner is very helpful to explain which dishes can be made vegan (V on the menu). All dishes are made from scratch with local products. Barrab veganizes local...Northern Thai dishes.. loving this. We ordered: 32. Homemade peanut sauce with mixed vegetables 33. Herb and spices sauce with eggplant and Thai holy basil & Som Tam & Thai tea (with coconut milk). You can choose between 2 sizes, we took it as main dish.
