The Riverside Restaurant is a long established international eatery close to Narawat Bridge. The Riverside offers dinner cruises every evening. Diners board the Riverside cruiser at the restaurant’s private jetty 75 minutes before the 20:00 sailing. This gives the crew time to take orders from the restaurant’s menu and the chefs to prepare it. Options cover all the Thai and Northern favourites with Pad Thai fried noodles, Chiang Mai Hors d’oeuvres and Geng Keow Wan green curry among the choices. The dinner cruise is 75 minutes long.
