Chiang Mai has a wide range of menus across the city, from Italian to Japanese, Thai to American. For anyone living here or even just visiting, the options are endless. If you can’t decide what menu to try tonight, why not try one of these new restaurants?

Uncle J’s

For those searching for the ultimate gourmet burger experience, deciding on the right restaurant can be tough, just like the beef often served up. So look no further, Uncle J’s is here. Opened just over two months ago, Uncle J’s is now serving Chiang Mai gourmet burgers designed by a world class Michelin Chef Jaseba E Jimenez de Jimenez has a vast culinary history that includes cooking for three US presidents, the presidents of both China and Japan, and managing the gastronomy kitchen that serves the British Royal Family, not to mention countless Michelin star restaurants and tenures in Gordon Bleu and the Spanish culinary academy. With a passion in food science, the burgers at Uncle J’s are unlike any in Chiang Mai. Try the Ubonian, a chorizo themed burger served with special sauces and fried potato, or their Spanish omelette burger, a real breakfast treat. For Spanish food fans, try the Lomo Adobado, a traditional sandwich only available at Uncle J’s.

Tengoku Sankampaeng

The Tengoku Japanese Restaurant empire expands. There is the posh branch in Tasala, the trendy branch on Nimmanhaemin and now the country branch in Mae On. This spectacular property with a three hole golf course, three man-made lakes and numerous vegetable patches and greenhouses is part of Tengoku’s dedication to organic and quality ingredients. Leftovers from the other two restaurants are recycled to feed the fish in the ponds or used as fertiliser and the circle of life produces all the greens for all three restaurants. The views are spectacular and it is best to arrive around 5pm for the lovely sunsets. For a ‘til the end of year promotion only you can pay 900 baht each and receive a generous set of hamachi, tuna and salmon sashimi, a plate of beef wagyu, enkawa and Hokkaido scallops and also a sakura and botan flower soup. Following this, you can order to your heart’s content from 30 menu items. This price also includes water and green tea. A wonderful new food destination.
