    I love Khao So I and this restaurant does it right. I would have been glad of an 'inside' room as it was quite hot outside under just a fan. The food made up for the heat though. I've eaten many bowls of this northern Thai speciality and this was one of the best.

    Visited with family, over 20 years since this was my regular Sunday lunch haunt. Khow Soi is still as tasty as ever. We had it with the satay chicken which was excellent too. My only complaint would be the lack of shallots that ought to have been with the side of pickled cabbage.

    We hopped in a Tuk Tuk from the old city and it cost us about 100 bhat to get there. The driver knew exactly where we wanted to go (but have the google map ready just in case) 1. You will not be able to read anything on the menu or the name of the restaurant for that matter. Study the pictures on here before you go so you know it's the right place. Seat your self and just say "beef Khao Soi and Pork BBQ" 2. Get at least two water bottles 3. Enjoy the most life changing and delicious food in Thailand. 4. Pay around $5 for two people. *disclaimer: this is not for the weak in terms of spicy. You will feel the burn, but it is worth every second.

    We've been coming here for more than twenty years and we return with high expectations whenever we return to Chiang Mai. There's lots of good khao soi in Chiang Mai but this really is the best. Years ago it was rumoured that the King used to have the Lam Duan khao soi served to him whenever he was at the royal palace on Doi Suthep, and it seemed entirely credible. This is one of those world famous restaurants that do one thing wonderfully well. The secret lies in the authentic ingredients that go into the paste that is added to the coconut cream and fried with it. Nothing is prepackaged; just watch the cooks preparing it in the outdoor kitchen. Order the excellent satay to go with the khao soi and you'll have a wonderful meal. Prices may be a little higher than some other places, but you're paying for history, experience, and the best ingredients; they don't cut corners.

    The khao soi here is one of the best I've tried, we actually walked here from out hostel which took about 25mins but it was so worth the journey. This is a must try for all khao soi lovers.

    Seriously, this place does Khao Soi and does it right. I have eaten many a Khao Soi in many of places and this is the spot. There is only one other spot that competes and you would have to do a side by side comparison in order to settle that argument...If you're into that kind of thing.

    We stopped by another place near the night bazaar that was recommended by Lonely Planet and the khao soi was small and lacked flavour. Still hungry we ventured to Lam Duan and were not disappointed. We got two Khao Soi with chicken and it was extremely flavourful and a decent portion. The sauce/broth was rich and fairly spicy even without adding any of the chilies. Would definitely recommend coming here for a great bowl of Khao Soi. Even our tuk tuk driver told us it was one of the best.

    You have to have their signature dish! It is the best in town. Clean, friendly, and fun. A must go for anyone who loves food.

    We knew we had to try Khao Soi while in Chiang Mai but didn't know where to go. Luckily we ran into some locals and they said this is the place to go. It's a little far out but still an easy taxi ride. We had the pork and beef Khao Soi, spring rolls and chicken skewers. Everything was delicious and one of my best drinks too the Lychee smoothie. We tried the other Khao Soi restaurant near the North gate but it wasn't as good, so for our last meal we went back again for more.

    The rich, fragrant and spicy broth combined with slippery noodles and the crunch of fried noodles makes for one hell-of-an experience. Aromatic and intense. This bowl was completely worth the taxi ride for. Next time though, I probably wouldn't choose the pork ribs. There wasn't much meat on them, but the soup is the main star.

    Decided to go here after I read a New York Times article about the chef from Pok Pok in Portland... This is one of his favorite places, and oh wow, was it delicious! I was the only tourist there; it was packed with locals. Easy to miss because it's a very unpretentious roadside restaurant. The kitchen is right on the street, with seating behind. Definitely worth riding over or getting a taxi. Super cheap, so go hungry and order everything!

    Best Khao Soi in Chiangmai, 'must eat' food. It is served with chicken or beef or duck. It is a typical non air-conditioned food shop . The cooking is done at the entrance so you can see how Khao Soi is prepared. The location is not easy to find.

    There's nowhere better in Chiang Mai than Khao Soi Lam Duan to try the region's curried noodle soup. The friendly staff house cat make for lovely company to go along with your meal.

    Had a delicious inexpensive authentic Chiang Mai meal for lunch. Had chicken and a beef curry noodle soups, slightly spicy in a rich broth. Also enjoyed fried pumpkin. Fried shrimp less so. A nice food adventure.

    This restaurant is very popular for both locals and tourists. Noodles with pork, pork ball, chicken and beef. It's mild spicy. All foreigners should come to try at this restaurant. It's always crowded. You should come a little bit before noon. No nice view and fast service.

    Stopped by the khao soi shop to try their famed noodles. Loved the flavourful soup and the lean meat slices that came with it! Courteous, prompt service too.

    The best Khao soi in Chiang Mai, particularly the beef khao soi! We love it so much we went back twice during our short stay! Great texture with the combination of soft and crispy noodles, the aromatic, flavourful, mildly spicy broth, and the tender beef brisket are just perfect and we simply just can't get enough of! We tried chicken, pork and beef khao soi, and we liked them all, but we are blown away by the beef khao soi. Definitely a must try in Chiang Mai!
