A great dining experience, first class service, decor, location and of course the food. There is a large selection of courses to choose from from the menu. Also a Good wine and beer list at reasonable prices. The food was cooked to perfection. No noisy smelly motor bikes to ruin your meal, just serene river views to gaze at. Cheers... More

We had beef carpaccio, a variety of pizzas, then a plate of ribs, slow-cooked for 72 hours. For dessert, the tiramisu and the rhubarb complimented our meal nicely. Cocktails are good too, and wine selection is within expectations of the hotel brand. Overall, a very great experience, highly recommended.

This restaurant deserves even 5 stars only for the people who work is it, as they are always smiley, kind and ready to help and satisfy you.

I am not really sure the cooks taste the dishes before sending them out. The meal started with some fresh bread and a tapenade. The olives used seems to be on the mild end of the flavour spectrum so there was not the expected punch. But, overall it was tasty. We ordered two different dishes: salmon with a truffle oil...

If you travel for a while in Thailand, a change of taste is welcomed. Facial is a perfect spot to tease taste buds. From starter, breads, amuse Bouche to main course you will be transported to Italy.

I am always wary of restaurants in hotels. However I was proved completely wrong by the Favola. The restaurant is set by the river with tables along the river bank. There is also an air-conditioned room if you prefer. My husband had prawn and squid spaghetti instead of the full seafood as he doesn't like mussels so asked not to... More

Description
WOOD FIRED FROM THE HEART FAVOLA, a specialty Italian restaurant by the Kok River, is the ultimate riverside dining destination in Chiang Rai for the "lazy gourmet" in a contemporary country scene, with breathtaking views of the Kok River and surrounding Mountains either day or evening. The cuisine in Favola is more of a journey rather than a meal period reflecting its name which means "fable or story" in English, where simplistic Italian flavours are presented from our signature wood fired oven and char-grill along with an array other Authentic Italian favourites.
