The Westin Chiangmai Hotel served Thai and western food buffets at the River Terrace Restaurant. It was in ground floor. Breakfast was 302.5 Baht.
This photo is an example. In the middle of photo, there are "pancakes", "pan fried fish fillet with lemon butter", "cream source potatoes", and "English baked beans". In the left side dish is "boiled rice with chicken meatballs". I mixed a few drops of "Nam Pla" into the "boiled rice". "Nam Pla" is "Thai fish sauce". I had a cup of tea and a glass of guava juice. There was egg counter, too. I ordered a plane omelet. They were delicious.
