Very friendly. Had a great hotpot meal and stayed to play pool. Listen to music and of course drink a few beers. Free shots as well. Had a lovely night and very well looked after. Nothing is too much for the owner. Very helpful and friendly. Definitely go again when in the area

Nice Place for a beer and feed. Staff are friendly. For me I think it is the best place in Chiang Khong to sit back and relax in the afternoon. Opens about 400pm

Honestly the best bar in thailand, they offer cheap food and give extra for free. They have 2 pool tables, Genja, blackjack, connect four, fussball table, good music & they gave us 2 free beers and shots all night just so we stay in, they are very friendly. Nice fans & open doors. Owner even gave us their bike to take to 7eleven to get food. Honest people. Must try in the area.
Made our last night in thailand the best yet. They are taking us home in their car. Couldn't ask for nicer owners!

I was in Chiang Khong in September and ventured out with my friends into Chiang Khong for a few beers. We found a great British bar down a small dark street and met another group of travelers. We were all having a fantastic time and after meeting a nice British girl, we both decided to check out
the other entertainment on the main road. We were called over to a bar named Rin Bar and bought a drink or two.

The next morning, I realised I had lost my brand new iPhone and I ran back to the original bar. A neighbour led me to the owners house and they got out of bed and opened the bar to look for my phone but it wasn't there. I was panicking in case I missed the mini bus to the border but the owner said," Give me your number son and face book and I'll try to find it".

I won't go into detail but I arrived at the overnight stay on the slow boat to find this guy had traced my phone to The Rin Bar. She had claimed it was found outside to this guy, told the police I couldn't pay my bill and if I wanted it, I could come and get it!

I decided that yes, I would come and get it and took the speed boat back to Chiang Khong the next day, leaving my friends behind. The guy from the British bar, fed me, gave me free beer and let me stay in his hostel for free. I would like to mention him and his bar but he insisted he didn't want any publicity.

When I collected the phone, the owner looked shocked to see me and I was told I had left it on the table and was drunk. She also said, I was lucky I didn't get my face slashed! I asked her, " Do I have a bill?". She replied, 150 baht. I paid it to avoid any trouble but I remember paying for our beers that night.

I later found they had used a lot of my credit and took photos and videos on my phone. A good experience and a very bad one in one night. Not to mention the cost and inconvenience.

Be careful guys!

Last night myself and a few buddies I'm traveling with decided to go out to Run Bar for a few drinks and had an absolutely wonderful time. Drinks were cheap and good and they gave us free shots and other goodies.

However, our night quickly turned south when we realized that one of the women in the group left her phone on a chair and the Thai bartender who was sitting on the chair directly after her swiped it.

I hate for one bad apple at this bar to ruin the bar's reputation but that seems to be what's happening. Hopefully the owner will have the good sense to remedy the situation because it isn't fair to anyone for one person to ruin an otherwise delightful night.

After coming in to Chiang Khong on the green bus from Chiang Mai, I met a group of travellers at the Rin Bar. The bar, seemed okish at the time, but on the slow boat we all met up again and one girl had, her purse stolen with her money and cards in. She was really upset and when we checked online later, it wasn't the first time this has happened.at this bar. Best to give this one a miss guys.

Ate here twice. First time was great but the second time they messed up the order and the replacement food they brought out was wrong!! They did knock it off the bill but that isn't the point. Otherwise OK and I had no problems here. Pool table and darts are free. Good music selection.

I met Danny & his friends in Laos, they said stop by my pub, I did, what a great sports bar, pool table, snooker table, darts board, table hockey & more. 2 big screens to watch football, UFC, Winter Olympics, whatever you want he'll look after your every needs.
The restaurant was open till midnight when I was there & serving great traditional & western foods available Rin Danny's beautiful partner is a wonderful host & chef.
Loads of comfortable seating inside & outside, with music of your choice playing.
Honestly it's a one-stop shop, with honest to goodness decent food, drink, music & sport.

Thank you Danny & Rin for your hospitality.
