Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rated as one of the best and most famous restaurants in Mae Hong Son, we just had to visit seeing the place packed with Thai m, was a good sign. Yet so we thought. Unfortunately, we had a very disappointing experience. We received wrong items...from the menu, repeatedly. And had to send things back. Not sure if it was the langue barrier, but we were quite clear on what we wanted to order. I was also really clear about my desire to have the food spicy. Thai spicy, to be precise. I double checked this with staff, to be sure the food was spicy as I like that and am able to eat it without a problem. Unfortunately, my food wasn’t spicy at all. Even the dishes that were advertised as ‘beware, spicy’. Very disappointing, we should’ve gone to the night market around the corner for a better food experience. All in all a very mediocre experience.More

Located right at the heart of the city, the restaurant served delicious Thai (especially Northern Thai) food. Dishes we ordered were Lanna hors d'oeuvre, Northern Thai style minced pork Larb, Hang Lay curry (Northern Thai curry with stewed pork), and the last one that I...forget what it is (haha). They were quite tasty.More

Good Thai food and excellent service. You have to be prepared for bugs but that’s part of being in the setting and forest you’re in.

Restaurant looked nice and menu was good. But sadly the service was not. As we sat eating our meal, and other people left the staff continuously turned out the lights around us. We felt very uncomfortable as they hovered and waited for us to finish....Eventually we left not even finishing our drinks. Not impressed and would not recommend if you are looking for a relaxed meal.More

We have been there only for breakfast while staying overnight at the hotel. Nice and clean but nothing special. Egg station, fried noodles, some bread and jam. Some local food. All ok but nothing special.

I went here YEARS ago and just recently found the name of this place in one of my journals from my time in Thailand. I LOVE Fern. The ambiance is great, and I loved it so much I ate here two nights in a row!...Definitely a hidden gem and if I am ever back in Thailand, I will absolutely come back.More

The restaurant had lovely view outside with beautiful flowers. It was elegantly with retro Thailand styles. The food here is very delicious and distinctive. This place will make you dont forget Maehongson.

Fern Resort is an exceptional place to stay but the restaurant does not do it justice. If you are staying in the hotel and perhaps like a beer or a glass of wine with your meal it would mean an expensive ride into town as...driving would be illegal and unsafe. The menu is nothing that you would not find in any restaurant in Thailand. Having said that I enjoyed my meal and we were satisfied with the service.More

I will recommend the fried fish with mango salad. Just perfect! The ambience is romantic with a singer performing between 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm. This restaurant was voted as the best restaurant

A local Thai restaurant long established, well known to most local and tourist. Just situate in the middle of the town. It offers Northern cuisine as well as other Thai famouse dishes such as Tom Kha Kai ( Galanka-Coconut milk chicken soup), Kang Kaew Warn...(Green curry soup), and Som Tum or Papaya salad. Other recommended dishes are Grilled Baby Shitake marinated in Soy sauce, Local fish dishes such as Pla Kod Kung, a kind of fish simolar to American catfish, which can be serves in many ways, e.g., Hot and Spices stir fried, poach, deep fried. There is a one man band show starting around 7 p.m. till closed time.More
