Tips for you
Really tasty and great quality thai food. We went for Phad Thai, Crispy chicken, somosas and chicken catay. Cocktails are good as well. Lovely staff and charming place by night. Highly recommended
We checked a few of the "Top 10 places to eat in Chiang Mai" websites. Dash! appeared on all of them with consistently high ratings. We checked TripAdvisor reviews and they were very positive so we thought we'd give it a try. The Tuk Tuk driver we used recognised the restaurant name immediately and kept saying it is very good there. It was a bit off the main road, down one of the Old City side roads. On arrival we could see it was a beautiful Teak House that has been restored to its former glory. On arrival, we didn't have small notes to pay the Tuk Tuk driver and asked the restaurant for change. We were told not to worry as they were happy to pay the driver on our behalf and we could repay them later which was a nice touch. We hadn't booked in advance and they were full when we arrived so we had a drink at the bar. We could see through to a clean and well organised kitchen. Bar and waiting staff were very friendly but exceptionally busy. After about 20 minutes a table was available for us in the courtyard area. We sat at a table but there were also some traditional Thai low tables and triangular cushions/mats. We had a fantastic view of the teak house from the courtyard. There was plenty of choice on the menu and we ordered a mixed sample platter starter while we made our choices. The waitress did tell us the sample platter was a lot of food and when it arrived, we realised that we should have ordered something smaller - It would feed 4-6 people. Our main courses were Tamarind Chicken, Sea Bass with Red Curry Sauce, Morning Glory, and Fragrant Rice. The food was fantastic. The waiting staff were very attentive and the manager/owner took the time to go to each table and talk to customers. He is originally from Thailand but has lived and studied in UK and USA. He speaks both English and Thai equally well and this will be a bonus to those of you that are worried about the language barrier. There were mosquito repellent sprays on the tables for customers to use freely and burners with repellents were lightly smoking around the garden. We were not bothered by any insects which was a bonus for me as I have a severe allergy to certain mosquito bites! Our meal and a couple of drinks each came to less than £15 and we loved every bit of it. In fact we returned for a second meal a couple of nights later, again with no reservation. The second visit was on a Buddhist Festival Day that means no alcohol is sold out of respect for Buddha and Monks/Novices. We were glad to see that the restaurant had covered and hidden any alcoholic beverages, refusing to sell them (we had passed a couple of places that were flouting the rules and serving alcohol to tourists, which we found disrespectful!). The owner/manager introduced his Mum on this visit and we chatted about how precise she likes to be with her flavours. We jokingly said that she should write and sell a cookbook with her recipes in as the food is so good. Her son said he has suggested this for some time now and also wishes she would do this even though he would have to type it all out for her. This time we ordered no starter and for mains, Massaman Curry, Pad Thai, Sticky Rice, Crispy Pork Salad and Moo Palou (Red Pork sliced with accompanying spices/veg on a Rothi bread). SUPERB! My favourite meal from the 3 week holiday in Thailand and Singapore. All this food came to less than £12 with a couple of soft drinks included. On both nights, we were entertained by a male/female duo singing and playing keyboard. They were brilliant and had an amazing repertoire from recent chart singles to Pink Floyd and the like. Very entertaining :) I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough and would definitely eat there again if we return.
