Home - Travel stories - Chiang Rai - Dined at Aye

879/170 Thanon Phahonyothin, Mueang Chiang Rai, Chiang Rai.

We arrived in Chiang Rai for the first time, and we were hungry. It was early afternoon, and we were looking for a light lunch. We walked around a bit, and we decided to eat at Aye's. There were some Dutch dishes on the menu, that might have influenced our decision.

Aye's is a big reatsurant in a busy street. It looks bright and friendly. In front is a small terrace.

The staff is friendly and fast. They know very well what they have to do.

On the menu were European and Thai dishes. We decided we wanted to eat Thai food, for some reason we didn't want Dutch food. We ordered larb kai, spice minced chicken prepared on the northern-Thai way.
The food looked good, but is was definitely adepted to western visitors. The taste was not bad, but we missed the spicy ingredients that belong to larb, like chili, fish sauce and lime juice. Pity.

So if you want to eat real Thai food, don't go here. But if real Thai food is to spicy for you, go here, you will probably enjoy your meal.

We have been at Aye's one time, in February 2010.
