What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

There are an abundance of restaurants in Chiang Mai, everything from fine dining (David's Kitchen) to delicious street vendor stalls. There are good Mexican options here (Miguel's and Salsa Kitchen), good American food (Arno's, The Duke's) and of course delicious Thai food. There are also decent vegan/vegetarian options, Indian, Japanese, Middle Eastern, etc. It is super easy to order restaurant delivery from either Food Panda or Meals on Wheels 4 U right to your house. - Mar 2019


Chiang Mai has thousands of restaurants, including at least one from most culinary regions. Prices are low. If you want to eat cheap (but delicious) Thai street food, it's cheaper to eat out for every meal than to prepare your own food. Western fast food is widely available too: McDonald's, KFC, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, Dairy Queen, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, etc. - May 2007
