Why Khao Soi Samer Jai is special ?
Khao Soi Samer Jai serves the probably best Khao soi in town. ‘khao soy’ is the signature dish of Chiang Mai and so iconic of the northern Thailand city that it is often simply called “Chiang Mai noodles.” The broth is excellent – dark and flavourful, rich with earthy spice and low on the coconut milk that can make the dish overly sweet. Try the khao soi beef and yummy grilled satay skewers with peanut sauce. Khao Soi Samer Jai is the kind of restaurant that is hard to find, namely on the other side of the Ping River, and lies totally inconspicuous next to a temple. But when you made it, you’ll be surprised how crowded this place is (with locals and not with tourists!)
How to get to Khao Soi Samer Jai?
Khao Soi Samer Jai is located next to Fhaham temple. Taxi is the best way to get there.

Tips for you
Of the 3 famous Khao Soi speciality restaurants in Chiang Mai, I like Samer Jai best. The curry is thick, intense and not-too-spicy. The portion is bigger than the other two and price is 40bt. The fried noodle is also thicker and rounder than the others. You can combine your trip here with a trip to Khao Soi Lam Duan - Fa Ham, which is around 150 meters away.
Service is way better than the neighboring Khao Soi place. The broth is a bit watered down and not enough go to with every bite. Plenty of space to accommodate big groups of people.
