Still the best in MHS, this restaurant moved recently, from its prime site near the lake to a less prominent position. Covid has taken its toll, but still the best! The comfort and ambience are not yet back to normal, but they are getting there.

I've been meaning to write this review for quite some time and finally got round to it. This is now the third location of the restaurant over around 15 years since I first visited. The location has changed but the quality of the food and...the cheerfulness of the staff has remained the same. The owner, Nang is a lovely lady and really knows how to cook! The Shan meatballs and the tealeaf salad are just fantastic! I run a motorcycle tour company and always take my clients here. No matter whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner the food is always to quality at a reasonable price and served with a smile. Thank you Nang and your staff!More

Stopped here during Mae Hong Soi motor cycle loop and loved the friendly service and great food. I had Khow Soi but my companions (and the next table) had tea leaf salad which they raved about. Owner a lovely Burmese lady

This restaurant is our favorite in Mae Hong Son. Be warned because the restaurant is moved to a new location. The old restaurant is still there but different owner. The new location of Salween is only 10 minutes walk from the old location.You pass the...Burmese temple at the lake. You keep left and you will find it. We had a warm welcome and as before the food is amazing. They serve Thai, Shan and Western dishes.More

My motorcycle tourguides (Fred & Aom) took us here for dinner. I enjoyed tgest beef curry that ive eaten in decades. Absolutely delicious. What a lovely evening, top class food, nice atmosphere and well priced. There is a slight wait for meals but that is...because each meal is prepared from scratch, no pre geating.. I certainly know where i will eat the next time i visit Maehongson. ThankyouMore

I’m the kinda guy who only writes a review if an experience is either really really bad or really really good. This is the best restaurant in Thailand. I love everything about this restaurant. It is situated in a little lake in Mae Hong Son....It is authentic. It responsibly buys from local farmers. It has cool tables, chairs, roof, bar and lighting. The food portions are big. Everything came out fast, but not too fast. The beef and pineapple curry (the Shan waitress recommended) is to die for. The spice levels were perfect. The food flavours were great. Price was very reasonable.More

It was decent food but had waaaay better khao soi in Pai. Service was unbelievably slow but we were on vacation so not a huge deal. Spring rolls were good, food is hot/hot when it comes to the table (temperature wise). No fans were turned...on, not sure why. Cool looking spot and was close to our guesthouse so give it a shot to don’t expect anything that would put this at number one on trip advisor.More

Absolutely amazing food, I had Burmese green tea salad and the potato cakes, they were both delicious and so cheap for stunning food. Brilliant service too from a charming young man.
