Review: The place with the largest selection of Vegan(Jay) food I know in Bangkok. Great value for money 30-40 baht for rice and 3 helpings(about a ladel and a half of food). It has about 10-12 different stalls selling different sorts of Vegan Thai food. It's open 6 a.m. to 2 pm Mon-Fri, 6 3 pm Sat-Sun. As is often the way with Jay restaurants the stalls tend to cook up and big batch of food for the beginning of the day, then they add a few things later depending on demand. Generally the earlier you get there the fresher your food will be. It has a nice atmosphere there's a mix of different people there with quite a few older chinese thai grandparents shuffling in for their regular fix of Vegan food and Issan street sellers enjoying there Mushrooom Laab(minced meat salad). I do love Laab, it's normally made with meat but here there are 4 different kinds of Mushroom/Tofu Laab. One of the few places in Thailand that's not that noisy even though there are a lot of people there. The absence of Big TV's and tannoy systems blasting out adverts helps Not sure why it's listed as closed You take your own plates back and there are different bins for food and plastic. This adds to the spirit of the place, "Ask not what your restaurant can do for, you but want you can do for you restaurant." It is difficult to find but the map here is quite good. You can't see it from the main road. If you are walking up Kampeng Pet 2 road away from the Underground Station you turn left as you get to the JJ OUTLET MALL, walk about fifty yards down and turn to your left. It took me two attempts to find it. Updated from previous review on Saturday January 12, 2013 Updated from previous review on Saturday January 12, 2013
