Siripanna Lunch – One of the Best Buffets in Chiang Mai

Siripanna Hotel has quite an extensive buffet style “Business” lunch on offer in its own restaurant. The Siripanna lunch is a very good option for new people to Thailand, you can sample some of the delights of Thai food that you may see in the markets and been too scared to try, just in case you don’t like it. Here you can try a little bit of each and then you will know what you like!

I am a bit of a value hunter and I enjoy food, so it is a great place to enjoy some good food at a good price. The chefs and staff are attentive to the buffet and to the customers.

The ambiance of the dining areas is pretty elegant, though quaint and old school. You think could be dining with dignitaries in the plush and quiet surrounds. The pictures below are of the enclosed air conditioned room.

Then there’s the undercover but more open area, which feels a little more relaxed. In no part of this restaurant did I ever feel rushed or cramped.

Lots and lots of cheesy pizza is readily available. It’s not the most amazing pizza in Chiang Mai, but good for a cheesy fix.

The Thai style desserts are available, but most foreigners shy away from these sweet treats. The bananas in coconut are very nice though.

If you like cake, you’re in luck. Lots of cake varieties on offer. Lots of different flavors and styles. Even the Thai custard in pumpkin is always on offer and don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.
