Mae Ping Riverside Restaurant

You never know what you will see when you take the time to walk.

The banks of the Mae Ping River are dotted with restaurants and bars that come alive as the evening wears on. We made plans to meet Ursula at “The Riverside Restaurant” and feeling confident we could find our way we arrived a few minutes early, choose a lovely table at the rivers edge and waited for her to arrive. My phone rang and Ursula said, “Where are you?” …....Me, “We are sitting at a table, but I don't see you.” Some laughter and much apologizing to the wait staff that had seated us.......We were at the wrong restaurant!

We found her down the street at the Waterfall Riverside Restaurant, which is part of the other Riverside Restaurants and Bars. It is a lovely place with a very nice landscaped waterfall. The menu is extensive and has a choice for every taste. 

Morning Glory

Crispy Fried Catfish Salad with Sauce Below

Cashew Chicken

Mango and Pineapple

Massaman Curry

After our meal we walked across the street to the river side and had a lovely dessert and coffee.  

Strawberry Cheescake


Chocolate Mousse

You can request a can of insecticide! 
We were not bothered, maybe it was the time of year or we were not tasty this evening!


  1. Glad to see you two eatin' well :) Ahhh, and yes, always w/ the bug spray when you go out! Nobody wants dengue!!!!

  2. We are looking into some natural products instead of deet. Do you have any suggestions? We also have an electronic mosquito repellent app on our phones that we leave on next to the bed at night. It does work!
