A unique chef's table concept, this intimate dining experience is located, but of course, in Chiang Mai's hip Nimmanhaemin neighbourhood. The young gourmand behind the concept, Chef Black, draws inspiration from the seasonal fresh ingredients available locally and also selects special items to be flown in to craft an artisanal menu that is never repeated twice. With only three tables, reservations are an absolute must and seats are often booked out months in advance. A self-taught chef, Black is brilliantly inventive and passionate about his ingredients.
For a truly special experience, you can also book a food and cooking workshop with him.

Not dining but could not be excluded from the finest , we all love some sweet.
Elegant, bright from the rays shining down from the sun-roof, a sophisticated patisserie serving cakes, tarts, torts and sweet pastries at a quality and level of aesthetics hard to find in our city.
For Pastry Chef Saruda ‘View’ Virat, this is a labour of love: waking up hours before the sun stretches its morning rays, and baking her beloved desserts which are almost too beautiful to bite into — almost!
View has been baking for a decade, and is inspired by how beautiful and delicious a perfect treat can be. She is constantly on the lookout to improve her skills and has been investing heavily on world class equipment and the best possible ingredients. But most importantly, she has been investing in herself, having spent time studying under Cedric Grolet, voted The World’s Best Pastry Chef in 2018 as well as Julien Alvarez, who won The Champion of the World in 2011 — both, industry titans.
