Aiku was right beside our hotel above Starbucks, good Japanese food at a reasonable price.  Our hotel the Dusit Princess was a terrific hotel in the very best location in Chiang Mai, book through THIS LINK for a discounted room rate.

Out of 108 Japanese restaurants in Chiang Mai TripAdvisor rate Aiku number 5.

Whole Earth restaurant

I settled for a hotdog

Interesting Food Chiang Mai Thailand The best I have had in years. 🙂

Fabulous green pea soup

Interesting Food Chiang Mai Thailand TripAdvisor rate David’s Kitchen the number one Chiang Mai restaurant. I’m not going to argue as the food was very good and the staff excellent.

Lamb shank

Interesting Food Chiang Mai Thailand Two of us ordered the lamb shank & were surprised when the bill showed a B200 price difference. It turned out there were 2 versions o the menu, my advice to David the very attentive owner is to ensure staff point this out rather have have an argument at the end of an excellent meal.

Talking about he owner

He makes an effort to interact with his customers & explained that his wife come in of a morning to make he deserts. Here are two fabulous old photos of them in their younger days. David looks like is stepped out of the role as the artful dodger in Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist. 🙂
