This restaurant belong to the Holiday Inn Chiang Mai. And they provide dinner buffet, lunch and breakfast. Their seafood dinner buffet is quite economic price with delicious food, especially Thai style food. Breakfast is good too, but they don't provide scrambled eggs, which is pretty sad.

This has to be the worst lunch buffet I have ever visited. The food selection was poor, service poor and the quality was even worse. A must avoid in CM.

This is still one of the hotels with the most beautiful atmosphere in all of Thailand, and the river-front terrace is usually the most romantic getaway in Chiang Mai. However, this is totally changing now since groups from China added the "afternoon-coffee" on the river terrace into their travel itinerary. I visited on a Sunday afternoon, booked a table on...

A table outside on the veranda is great. The selection and prep is as good as any in Asia. We did not eat there for lunch and dinner.

Just as the name implies this restaurant overlooks the Ping river. The word around town is that this place puts on a fabulous lunch buffet – so I had to try it. I soon found that 'fabulous' was really an understatement. It was truly awesome and a must for anybody looking to enjoy both traditional Thai and Foreign dishes. I... More

A pleasant laid back place with a speciality of fish (try the stuffed snake head fish) with a good menu. Not the most sophisticated restaurant in Chiang Mai and if you go in the evening don't forget the mosquito spray as it is beside the river (either terrace or pontoon). Service is attentive and not pushy and staff are happy... More

Since we were staying in the Holiday Inn, we had dinner once at its restaurant, River Terrace. It has both indoor and outdoor seating and is considerably busy. It has an extensive menu offering food across different cuisines and we settled for Lanna Style Noodles and also tried Indian food by ordering Palak Paneer and Samosas. Firstly, the portions are...
