    Aroon Rai Restaurant: Best Curry in Town!

    by chatterley Written Jun 20, 2013

    This restaurant claimed that they serve the best curry in town! Verdict - very very good. Hubby liked the thick and aromatic chicken curry. Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain also ate here and said that every dish was good.

    We came here for dinner, and ordered 2 servings of sticky rice, stir-fried kang kong with crispy pork, butter fried squid, chicken curry and drinks (tea and coffee). We also ordered their home-made ice cream (we tried their coconut and Thai milk-tea flavors). Total cost: only 380 baht! (about 12 USD for 2 persons)

    Favorite Dish: The curry!

    This Restaurant is simple in design with an open air sort of feel. But what it lacks in decore the food more then makes up for it. The Restaurant has a really relaxed welcoming feel and is a great place to sit back and watch the world go by.

    Favorite Dish: Definately the Curries. Whether is be Yellow, Green or Red they are delicious. I have tried them all and they are fantastic. Also has alot of local dishes. The food here is cheap and delicious.

    Life stopped in the 1950s in this huge, sprawling but wonderful place. The main part of the restuarant is the main point -the second room at the back is just an extension and looks nothing more than an open-sided multi-purpose hall with bad overhead lighting.

    The front is also huge - open on two sides. There is very much a 1950s feel - lots of simple formica topped tables, wooden chairs with waitresses in blue nylon. Service counter runs most of the third wall, with the matriarch sitting in the middle protecting the cash register.
    But the food was the best we tasted in Chiang Mai - better than a number of relatively more expensive places.
    It is something of a Chiang Mai institution, and again encouraging to see a lot of locals eating there.

    Favorite Dish: Mushroom soup, noodles, rice.....
