Khao Soy Nimman Food Review

Khao Soy Nimman: Michelin Recommendation Restaurant

posted in: Thailand | 0

If you’re looking for where to eat Khao Soy in Chiang Mai, then Khao Soy Nimman should be at the top of your list. Their khao soi is very tasty and with wider variety selection.

Khao soi (ข้าวซอย) is one of my favorite foods to eat in Chiang Mai. It’s such an important northern Thai dish that must-try when visiting Chiang Mai. A bowl of crispy and soft egg noodles is served in a creamy, curry-like sauce made with coconut milk, and topped with chicken, seafood, or fish as well. So yummy!

Many restaurants and local eateries are serving khao soi. Among all, Khao Soy Nimman is a great place to taste this delicious food. The restaurant served a great bowl of khao soi and it is recommended under the Michelin recommendation guide. The broth has a thick consistency and is rich in coconut.

Khao Soy Nimman is a well-liked spot for both locals and tourists. When we arrived at the restaurant around lunchtime, it was quite busy. People are waiting in line.

Just be warmed. The place is so popular among tourists, we felt it is pricier compared to local restaurants. The portion is slightly smaller and has less broth. But you opted to top up with additional noodles. We finish the food with an empty bowl.

We recently had a very pleasant experience during our stay at Moose Hotel. It’s a great option for family travelers and offers great value for money. Read more about our Moose Hotel Nimman review below.

During my recent trip to Chiang Mai, we stayed in Moose Hotel Nimman for four nights. Since we were traveling with family members, including kids, we were looking for family-friendly accommodation in a good location for exploring the area.

The newly built Moose Hotel Nimman met all of our requirements. We were thrilled to find the perfect hotel with all the basic luxuries provided, at a reasonable price. It had a fantastic family room which made our stay all the more enjoyable.

Moose Hotel Nimman

Moose Hotel Nimman

Moose Hotel Nimman is one of the popular 4-star accomodations in Chiang Mai. It is conveniently situated in the Nimmanhemin part of Chiang Mai. The strategic location puts you close to attractions and interesting dining options.

We booked Moose Hotel Nimman through Agoda which we find the cheapest and best rate for the hotel booking in Thailand. Check for room rate now!

Check-in Chiang Mai Hotel

Upon arrival, we were immediately struck by the hotel’s modern and clean appearance. The lobby was inviting, and I appreciated the complimentary snacks available for guests. The check-in process was smooth and efficient, thanks to the friendly and knowledgeable receptionist. 

The excellent customer service provided by the hotel staff earned them a good Moose Hotel Nimman review from me. Throughout my stay, the staff members were always friendly and willing to assist me with any inquiries or requests I had. They also provided helpful information about nearby dining options and attractions.

The Rooms

Triple Room Moose Hotel Nimman

We stayed in a two-bedroom suite with two connecting bedrooms.

The first room was a triple room with one king bed and one single bed. The room was spacious with plenty of surface space for our luggage and belongings. It had a modern and comfortable design.

Deluxe Room Moose Hotel Nimman

While the second room exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, impeccably clean and featured a remarkably comfortable king-sized bed and a bunk bed. It was bigger than we expected.

Family Room Moose Hotel Nimman

We truly appreciated the spacious area for the bunk bed. The kids loved the bunk bed, the slides, lovely dolls, and the galaxy lighting. Additionally, each room had an air purifier, which added extra comfort.

The large TV offered a variety of shows, and although the Wi-Fi wasn’t the fastest, it was stable and reliable. 

Bathroom Moose Hotel Nimman

The only issue is that the room is not soundproof. Sometimes, you can hear noise from the lobby and from adjacent rooms. However, this is a minor concern.

Facilities

The only downside of the Moose Hotel Nimman is that there is no swimming pool available. However, some of the rooms come with a jacuzzi which can enhance your experience. If you are considering booking a room, it might be worth considering the ones with a jacuzzi.

Additionally, there is a small play area on the rooftop that is suitable for kids. Guests can enjoy a meal at the restaurant or a drink at the bar.

Secret Tips: There are three cute baby goats just outside the car park.

Breakfast and Complimentary Snack

Breakfast at Moose Hotel Nimman

We had a pleasant breakfast experience at the Moose Hotel Nimman. The breakfast options were extensive and included both Western and Asian cuisine to cater to everyone’s tastes. We particularly enjoyed the high quality of Thai and Northern Thai dishes.

The only downside was that the breakfast menu was the same for the four consecutive days of our stay. However, this is not a major issue as we usually had a simple breakfast with some fruits before heading out to a nearby café for coffee.

Complimentary Free Snack Moose Hotel Nimman

Additionally, complimentary snacks are available in the hotel lobby daily from 2 pm. We tried delicious local North Thai snacks and it was tasty!

Free Drinks Moose Hotel Nimman

There are also free drinks for guests but cannot take out.

Excellent Location

If you are driving in Chiang Mai, on-site parking is available at Moose Hotel Nimman. It is a must in this area because finding parking can be difficult.

Airport Shuttle and Free City Buses

Free Airpot Shuttle Service from Sheraton Phu Quoc Resort

The hotel offers a free shuttle bus service to the airport, but you need to book in advance. We used this service to go from the airport to the resort. It was easy to arrange and we didn’t have to wait long for the shuttle or other passengers. It was very convenient to get on the hotel bus with our luggage and arrive at the resort.

If the timing is not suitable, consider to pre-book the Phu Quoc International Airport Transfer from Klook.

Additionally, the hotel provides shuttle services to nearby attractions like VinWonders, VinSafari, and GrandWorld every half an hour. This service is great for sightseeing and shopping. If the bus schedule doesn’t suit you, you can always take a taxi or an e-hailing service.

Also, if you plan to visit the Southern Island, we recommend taking an e-hailing service. This is what we did when we moved from our next stay in Phu Quoc, Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay.

Overall: Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort Review

Sheraton Phu Quoc Resort Night View

During my visit to Phu Quoc, we stayed at two different places: Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort  and Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay. It’s hard to say which one was better because each had its own advantages and disadvantages.

However, if you’re seeking a tranquil and secluded getaway, the Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort is definitely the place for you. The food and drinks were exceptional, and our room was stunning. The beach was breathtaking, and the pool was fantastic.

From the time we checked in until the moment we left, we were pampered and treated like royalty. It was tough to say goodbye. We will come back to spend our holiday at Sheraton Phu Quoc again!

The food options were slightly limited and the hotel was slightly out of town. It requires some time to travel to the town area. However, this wasn’t an issue for us as we went there to relax. 

Compared to the nearby JW Marriott Phu Quoc Emerald Bay Resort & Spa for a luxurious stay, the price for staying in Premier Residences Phu Quoc Emerald Bay is much cheaper.
