Chiang Dao Nest 2 Restaurant


Fantastic quality Thai restaurant, with wonderful mountain views.

The restaurant at Nest 2 has often been overlooked while the European restaurant at Nest 1 gathers all the plaudits, but this is gradually changing as word spreads about the fine fare on offer.

"Oh", Manager and Head Chef at Nest 2 (also Wicha's sister), and her team in the Nest 2 kitchen, with guidance from Wicha, provide a refreshingly different menu, with a variety of tasty dishes from across Thailand. Oh, while not formally trained, was brought up in Bangkok, in a family of amateur Thai food critics. Growing up cooking for a family with acute demands about the multitude of tastes within Thai dishes have prepared her well for creating great tasting meals for guests to enjoy.

Most of the ingredients used at Nest 2 are sourced locally. We select the best quality and organic options where possible. Please note that the kitchen at Nest 2 is small and some times there can be quite a wait to be served. The serving staff also have very limited English. Please be patient with us!

Thursdays - Please note that the restaurant at Nest 2 is only open for breakfast and lunch on Thursdays (closed from 15.00pm onwards) throughout the year. Most Thursdays between November and February we have a Barbecue at Nest 1. If the barbecue is not happening, then the restaurant at Nest 1 will be open as usual.

Advance reservations are not always needed, but are recommended to avoid disappointment, particularly at weekends, and during the cool season (Nov-Feb). Please use the contact form for table reservations.
