3. Yangzi Jiang

No-frills hometown Cantonese made with high quality ingredients and served in a lovely wooden house. It’s not cheap, but the bold flavours of XO noodles with seafood, prawn kiew tiew lod noodles, roasted duck and dim sum will surely win you over.

Open daily, 11.30 a.m. – 10 p.m.

10 Nimmanhaemin, Soi 5

053 225 313


The setting is sumptuous and the dim sum lunch sets are consistently excellent. Named Thailand Tatler’s Best Restaurant for many years, this is where you go to get rare, expensive and high quality Chinese food – sans sharks fin soup, please.

Open daily, 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.,

6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

51/4 Chiang Mai-San Kamphaeng Road, at Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi

053 888 888 ext. 854

5. Chilli Village

From double cooked pork to spicy tofu, this is authentic Szechuan-style Chinese food served with a smile. Dishes are large and pack some serious heat, but there is plenty of cold beer to wash it all down. 

Open daily, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.

27/1 Wiang Bua Road, Chang Phuak

083 680 5593

6. Mei Jiang

Quite popular with Chinese locals and Thais alike, this place is known for its authentic  cuisine. The chicken Yunnan style (with black bean sauce) comes highly recommended.

Open daily, 12.30 p.m. – 3.30 p.m., 

6.30 p.m. – 10 p.m.

191/17-18 Chang Klan Plaza, Chang Klan Road

053 821 112

7. Jia Tong Heng

A long-time standby (over 50 years in operation!) with two locations in Chiang Mai, this place makes up for what it lacks in atmosphere with authentic Teochew food and large portions – the Peking duck is a favourite.

Open daily, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.

193/2-3 Sridonchai Road

053 820 8602
