Proprietor Goya Griffiths has assembled an expert team of Thai chefs and front of house personnel to fashion a Thai bistro that boasts superior service and exceptional Thai food, with an emphasis on northern Thai specialties that makes Chiangmai Bistro a standout in Merseyside and the region around St Helens and Warrington. Many of the dishes on offer at this Newton-le-Willows restaurant are prepared according to family recipes. The gai tod khun yai, for example is a signature starter that originated with the chef’s grandmother, consisting of golden, crispy deep-fried chicken wings with lemongrass and served with sweet chilli sauce, while the gaeng khow soi gai is a classic northern Thailand yellow chicken curry .
Chiangmai Bistro is generous and flexible enough to be able to cater to many of its custoemrs different dietary requirements. There’s a dedicated gluten-free menu that runs the gamut from starters through to main courses and curries, while vegetarian dishes feature heavily as well. Starters like the som tum papaya salad, the hot and sour tom yum po tag jay soup, and the pan-fried rice noodles in tamarind sauce with tofu, fresh bean sprouts, egg and spring onion served with peanuts, crushed chillies and lime are keeping Newton-le-Willows vegetarian diners – and Southeast Asian food fans in general – more than happy. Find Chiangmai Bistro up on the High Street, not far from the station (and therefore not much of a trek for Warrington residents).
1st time we've tried this restaurant. Service was spot on and the food superb. Already making plans of when to go back with family.
A very enjoyable meal for me, my wife and daughter. Fantastic service and fantastic food as always! Thank you we look forward to returning again in the near future.
Excellent service and food. It's small but I would recommend this restaurant.
Great Thai would recommend. Come here often I'll be back next week 😀
We decided to visit Chiangmai Bistro because of all the good reviews it has received. I'm really glad we did - all the food was really delicious and Goya was an excellent hostess, she works extremely hard. One tip ask how hot the food is if you prefer things not too spicy. I'm so pleased we have found this restaurant its not far from us and we will definitely go back. I have already recommended to a few of my colleagues at work.
We always enjoy a visit to Chiangmai Bistro because the food is so fresh and tasty. The staff are very pleasant and the service is quick. Yes it is a small restaurant but this does add to its charm and gives it a cosy feel. Try it for yourself and you won't be disappointed.
Excellent service and absolutely delicious food, I will be coming back. There was only us in at the time and when i booked online i was only given 3 options of seating 5pm 9pm and 9.30pm. We were told when we sat down at 5pm that the next table due in at the side of us was 7.30pm so i wish a sitting of 6pm had of been available as that would have been better, thats my only complaint which isnt really one as we still enjoyed it, just a bit of feedback.
Excellent food, excellent service. We have eaten at Chiangmai Bistro numerous times since they opened in 2015 and have thoroughly enjoyed every visit. Expect a very warm welcome. Highly recommended, but you need to book because they have a limited number of tables. Enjoy!
This was our second visit to Chiangmai Bistro, a lovely cosy little restaurant where we were warmly greeted. The menu looks very appetising and the food lives up to it. Having previously visited Chiangmai on holiday we were not disappointed .
Fantastic food and lovely head chef - we always enjoy a visit here, so much better than a Chinese takeaway. Food is always fresh and very tasty with amazing spice and flavour My only concern is that as her empire expands she wil loose focus on this place and it will lose its special appeal, however if she can manage the new place and remain loyal to this restaurant then she deserves respect and reward for bringing some oriental sunshine to our corner of the NE Go eat there - you won't be disappointed!
Excellent food and really friendly staff. Only draw back was that we were in the back of the restaurant and it was quite dark due to the weather shorting out the electrics (great British weather) but the candlelight was nice. The staff did keep asking if we were okay though. If i was to go again i would definitely ask to be seated in the main area. Very clean and high standards of food. Well recommended!
I'd definitely recommend a visit. The restaurant is lovely with photos of Chiangmai and Thai art on the walls. There's a good choice of dishes for both meat eaters and vegetarians and the food is fresh and absolutely delicious. The service is fast and the staff are curtious. The food is modestly priced but the only downfall is that soft drinks are quite pricey. I'd recommend booking in advance particularly on a weekend.
Small restaurant but don't let that put you off, infact it just makes the whole experience seem more personal. Very good service and very good food. The only negative which isn't really bad for me is that the card machine does not have a tip option so having very little cash on me meant that they lost out... I didn't give one because it was an offensively small amount od cash! 😃
We went to this restaurant for the first time on our Wedding Anniversary . We were both very impressed. It is a quite small place, there are two dining areas, we were in the front one so we didn't see the size of the second area. The food and service were excellent, lots of choice on the menu. We shall be retuning again very soon 😃
Lovely. Staff and Service excellent. Small restaurant which offers quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. Would like to say it would probably benefit to locate to a bigger premises but then I think it would loose the very atmosphere this restaurant wants create. Stay small we loved our experience can't wait to come back. Ps Hubby loved the draft Singh.
Always an excellent meal - and such ever-friendly, helpful staff. Everyone is made to feel like a family friend - and always most welcome. Fidelity is rewarded and most definitely appreciated. Far from run-of-the-mill Thai fare - very individual dishes, clearly personal creations of the very welcoming owner. Every dish is created with personal attention and immense care.
Food and service excellent. Restaurant is cozy but was very comfortable. Food we ordered was really fresh and tasty. No complaints at all. Will go back and probably order take away as wasn't aware they did this. Lots of choice on menu and nice to have a local Thai restaurant. Will recommend to friends and family
The restaurant is quite small but the food is amazing, with plenty of choice from the superb menu. We found a really warm welcome from the friendly staff and our whole experience was very good. The only thing to be aware of is is the size of the place, it is small and the tables close together, it didn't spoil the experience though.
We had a brilliant night at Chiangmai Bistro, the food was fantastic and the service was very friendly, I would stronly recommend and will certainly return.
This occasion the experience was a little dissapointing . starters fab the mains ie chicken ginger and Thai stir fry was lacking in flavour and spice. Not sure if the chef has changed. service was rushed I think it's about turning tables to cover 3 sittings on a sat night . the back room has 4 tables and is a bit claustrophobic hot and difficult if you want to be intimate as tables very close together.
