Auf der Au
Are you hungry? If so, I have the most amazing restaurant experience for you. You need to head a little bit out of the normal Chiang Mai area, but that is where the best places are found and this is the best of the best, that Chiang Mai has to offer. It’s Auf der Au , a German family style restaurant!

I will mostly let the pictures tell the story, but there will need to be some superlatives along the way to help you understand the complete goodness of the foods made fresh on site for you to feast on. The basics are always available throughout the week, but the buffet is ever changing and there is always something new to try. It’s all good, so you will not be disappointed.

Auf der Au, what is it? It’s a big family house and you are not a customer, you are a nephew, uncle or distant cousin coming for lunch or dinner. You are welcome, everyone is welcome! Auf der Au makes you feel like Sunday lunch at home with all the family. Then there is the food.
We start with the meat and main courses, you have to try everything! The tastes and textures are all different and, if you happen to find one thing, you don’t love, you will love the other 20 options. Watch out for the Dijon chicken and the schnitzels and crispy fish! All the rissoles and sausages are hand made and no fillers. The mashed potato and fried bacon potato onion mix are spectacular!
Salads and Cold Meats
There are options for vegetarians, but seriously it’s all about the meat at Auf der Au. There are all sorts of mixed salads and cold cuts, not my favorite but still great, I have tried them all, but the mains and desserts are my favorites and take my attention and tummy space.
Auf der Au is also a bakery and has amazing breads and products for sale outside the buffet hours or order as you need it.
I recommend the pizza style rolls and the sundried tomato filo pastries were also special.
Nothing more to say……. except don’t eat too much of the mains, salads and breads!
