Kitchen 79 has a massive menu with dishes from both northern and southern Thailand, including noodles, curries, and a very wide selection of other options - like a whole red snapper cooked in lime and chilis that you should definitely eat. Aside from the food, the string lights, full bar, and top 40 radio music make this a fun choice for a meal with friends or a casual weeknight dinner.
