Fantastic Thai and Burmese food

Located in the heart of Mae Hong Son, a charming small town in Northern Thailand. You will find Salween River Restaurant to be a lovely restaurant in a great location and deserving of its top rating.

She has now moved back to Mae Hong Son and changed its location to be outside the city please look at the map.

The restaurant itself is warm and inviting, with wood accents and a leaf-style roof. The decor was simple, and the music was nice and relaxing. Managed by Nang, she has run this place for over 10 years since May 2010. She was very nice and spoke very well in English.

They provide wholesome homemade breads, organic hill tribe coffee and food from local produce sources.

The menu is extensive enough for a couple’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the staff is friendly. Recommend the organic coffee and the veggie scrambled eggs or breakfast sets with coffee. All meals are fresh and delicious, and the prices are reasonable.

The best Shan’s food

I’m very surprised with the food. It was fantastic and the prices were amazing for what you get. The Shan food is the best I have had in northern Thailand. You keep going back again.

I would definitely recommend eating here. Lonely Planet had a good review which mentioned vegetarian food at this restaurant.

The location has changed. I have been given a new location near the lake. You would not walk around the town until you found it. You will have great meals here.

It’s a restaurant, not the river

The name Salween River Restaurant comes from a river that is part of the Thai-Myanmar border in Mae Hong Son. Myanmar calls the Thanlyin River, flowing into China as the Nu Jiang River and originates from Tibet. Which throughout this river basin is culturally diverse.
