The Vorra Bistro is a brand for traditional cuisines. We currently serve traditional Italian food at The Vorra Bistro at Old Town and traditional Thai food at Malao Malao at Riverside.

Even though both restaurants are attached to The Chiang Mai Riverside and The Chiang Mai Old Town hotels, they aren’t typical hotel restaurants, striving instead to attract discerning locals and tourists who visit us again and again.

Our ambition is to make The Vorra Bistro a local favourite where friends like to gather, or families spending time together enjoying delicious and healthy products carefully-sourced from local produce. We try our best to create a menu with good quality and value-for-money.

We are passionate about “traditional” food, wine, and sustainability.

We are serious about health and environmental aspects. Freshly picked, landed or prepared ingredients are far more nutritious. Consuming local produce also means supporting local communities and farmers which is important to us, besides it minimizes the carbon footprint that ‘luxury’ often results in. This is why ‘farm to table’ and ‘sustainable’ are highly correlated.

We use as much local produce as feasible, with only ingredients such as olive oil, seafood, and some dairy products sourced from afar. All fruits and a majority of proteins sourced locally, vegetables and herbs are grown in the kitchen gardens and by local growers.

With both current and old school cookery techniques used, in a relaxed yet professional setting, the Vorra Bistro is a true representation of the modern Chiang Mai.
