Rejoice! Chiang Mai’s restaurants (at least some of them) are back in business and able to serve customers in their establishments for the first time since March 23rd. It has been a painful time for Chiang Mai’s restaurant businesses. Covid-19 and the ban on opening have walloped them. Restaurant businesses typically have high overheads and large wage bills and this period has been harder on them than almost any other sector with some already going to the wall.
Many restaurants have displayed ingenuity and tenacity throughout the lockdown by increasing their takeaway and delivery service. However, those revenues, particularly without beverage sales, can never replace ordinary trading conditions. It has caused hardship among owners and staff alike.
Chiang Mai’s richly diverse restaurant sector is a highlight of our city, and one of the things that make is such a great place to live. It is also one of the reasons that 11 million visitors were attracted to Chiang Mai in the time before Covid. Our restaurants are part of the fabric of the city and we think it is vital to support this critical industry on which so many people depend for their livelihoods. It may be a while before visitors return in those numbers, so we urge everyone to support their favourite restaurants, whether that is dining in, taking away or ordering delivery.
Below is a list of restaurants that have announced they will open today while following government advice on health and safety. Please support them and all our local restaurants that contribute so much to our quality of life.
