Review: I have to declare an interest in this review, I know the manager of this place. The reason I know him is because I keep coming back here. It's 300 yards from my office and delivers good wholesome vegan food, good portions at a low price(that sounds like an advert but really I'm not just saying that). It wont be to everyone's tastes it is a basic canteen style place with no air con and one big fan at the back. The place opens before the crack of dawn at 5.30 a.m. and closes about 2 p.m.ish when the food is all sold. The earlier you get there the better it is. The manager speaks some English but it's not really needed as pointing and smiling at the dishes works fine if he is not on hand. Rice and 3 servings(a serving is about a ladle of food) is 40 baht. They rotate the types of food so you can come back here and still not get bored. There are ten trays of food available Tom yam, Green Curry, Tom Kaa (normally one of these 3 each day) , a spicy salad and mixed veg are staple choices. My five stars is based on the price, good filling food and the friendly manager. No animals, no milk, no cheese is used in this restaurant. And also no onion or garlic. Jay ( เจ ) food is Vegan + no onions or garlic. The manager explained to me that it is believed although onion and garlic are healthy foods, it is more difficult for the body to process them. Too much garlic is said to cause a build up of the excess in the kidney and too much onion is said to cause a build up of the excess in the liver. I have always wondered about the reason for Jay food, I would still like to see the evidence to support this, but it's good to know the thinking behind Jay ( เจ ) food.
