For a family celebration, four of us came to the Chiangmai Bistro in Newton-le-Willows for an evening meal. It was truly excellent. The presentation and flavour of the food was delightful, and service at table was excellent. Cannot speak too highly of the whole experience. We will be back!
As always at Chiangmai Bistro, the food was really great. We all had a lovely meal with good service. Would definitely recommend eating here, but it is only small so booking is advised.
Beautiful food and service as always! Staff are so friendly and attentive. The food is fresh and tasty, I would recommend to friends and family!
