For fans of Chinese cooking, Chiang Mai has a pretty good selection of Chinese restaurants. In addition to our recommended Chinese restaurants below, a number of other hotels also have onsite eateries serving delicacies from China. The Thai version of Hainanese chicken rice is called khao man kai. This dish is a common offering at dining centres and food courts in shopping centres.
JIA TONG HENG RESTAURANT
Jia Tong Heng has two outlets in Chiang Mai which serve an assortment of Chinese-style dishes as well as Hong Kong specialities seasoned with XO piquant seafood sauce. Squid with salted egg yolk, fried prawns, roast duck, duck breast with lemon sauce and crispy pork are just a few of the favourites listed on the Jia Tong Heng menus. The Sridonchai Road branch is close to hotels such as the Imperial Mae Ping and the Night Bazaar.
