Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi

Restaurants & Dining

Each evening you can meander through our 'city' and choose a new dining experience. We offer marvellous settings inspired by the history of Lanna and cuisine that has gained both an international and highly valued local reputation.

Le Grand Lanna is a renowned Chiang Mai establishment for authentic Thai cuisine; our Mediterranean restaurant is such a delight and nowhere creates dim sum delicacies as we do in Fujian.

During the day there is always a soothing view, a shady terrace and poolside service. Below we have detailed our dining options but the choice is only limited by your imagination. We are delighted to create private dining to your personal brief, from a torch lit barbecue in your villa to a candlelit dinner amidst the paddy fields.


Styled as a 1930s Shanghai mansion and offering fine regional Chinese cuisine. The dim sum lunch is renowned throughout Chiang Mai.

Set over two floors with a spacious veranda overlooking the traditional Kad Dhara Shopping Village and private dining available for 2 to 50 guests. Fujian has a rich atmosphere decorated in a prosperous style with many rare pieces from our art and antiques collection. The cuisine also meets the finest tastes.

Throughout Chiang Mai we are renowned for our lunchtime dim sum, fragrant delicacies presented in bamboo steamers. The evening menu lists a variety of Chinese regional cooking styles from classic Cantonese to the more spicy cuisine from Sichuan province with many contemporary innovations. In keeping with the Chinese ‘family style’ meal, portions are served individually on the finest bone china.

Fujian takes its name from the prosperous Chinese province which is famous for its black tea. Our diners are invited to enjoy a ‘tea tasting’ during their meal, comprised of some of the best teas from Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi’s extensive tea collection
