Beautiful atmosphere, interesting food

I really enjoyed my afternoon at Amrita Garden as it is a truly peaceful and quiet place with a relaxed atmosphere. The service was friendly and helpful, the food was alright. I had the daily lunch set and it felt like the veggies had been sitting on the plate for quiet a while, the soup was reheated and a little tasteless. But maybe my expectations were a little too high considering the price, which was a bit above average. They also offer some take-away desserts (some of which are declared as vegan) like different sorts of brownies, which are superb and absolutely made up for the disappointment!
Overall it's probably the healthiest food in the most beautiful place you'll find in Chiang Mai.

Peaceful place in a busy city

Beautiful place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city that Chiang Mai is. The food is simple and beautifully presented.

Pros: Peaceful. Almost entirely vegan.
Cons: Not open everyday.

Pretty good, but pricey

Posted on 05 / 21 / 2015

I just had the tempeh, which was good, though no sauce was provided which seemed a bit odd. The food seemed good, but definitely pricey with small portions (which is not atypical for a macro-oriented place).

Service was... well, it was some effort to get their attention, but in fairness they had a note about some of the family being on vacation.

I guess the place didn't really capture my heart the way it has others', but it is has a nice small garden, and I can imagine on the right evening, with the service a bit better, and one in the mood to spend a little, that it could be delightful!

Pros: Macro-oriented (for those who care), Probably good quality
Cons: Pricey for CM, Service

Wonderful Place, Wonderful Food

Amrita Garden is a wonderful little establishment in the old city of Chiang Mai. Please note, it must be the only western style restaurant in Chiang Mai that is almost entirely vegan. I say almost, as they do offer some non vegan desserts, but they also offer vegan and even raw vegan desserts, so who can complain! All of their main dishes are entirely vegan and they really do offer something quite different from what you are normally offered around here. Try this place out you will not be disappointed it is one of the best newer establishments around.

Pros: Offers something different, Delicious and healthy, Sells alcohol

great thai japanese mostly vegan food

kind of an adventure to find, but well worth the trip .. call ahead for directions if you can .. first of all, they make their own homemade kombucha which is excellent (make sure you ask for no ice) but the daily special changes everyday and is quite tasty, the vegan burger is fabulous and the traditional thai house setting is great .. the only grip i have about this place is though the staff is super friendly, the service can be a little hit and miss. overall make the journey, it is well worth it.

Pros: great kombucha, super tasty food, very nice staff
Cons: service is hit and miss

Detox Lunch

4
Posted on 09 / 10 / 2014

Very quiet atmosphere! It is very comfortable and I spent there about 2 hours... I ordered the Detox Lunch Set (99THB) which I really liked! It came with a small bowl of vegetable soup, a plate with mixed vegetables (steamed), rice balls wrapped in seaweed and mustard leaves and a papaya leaves tea. Everything was very light, clean and refreshing. Since I saw a tray with freshly baked vegan gluten-free muffins I had to try one! I ordered the banana muffin which was good, maybe a bit dry, but perfect with a tea or a coffee.

Pros: Marcobiotic-Organic, Vegan Muffins and cookies, Relaxing atmosphere

Enjoyed the food but was a little surprised (and dissappointed) that the desserts are all dairy.

One of the most interesting places I've visited.

Amrita Garden is a beautiful place. It is nice just to come and spend a few hours there, reading a book or starting a conversation with people.
The food is accurate. What do I mean by that: you can see how much thought was invested in every serving. It is simple but detailed, wonderfully served and surprisingly filling.
The food itself is very interesting, has it's own agenda and does not surrender to trends or outside influence. This is one of the things I really appreciate about this modest serene place.
Try the Tempe.

Pros: special dishes you can't find anywhere, serenity!, as healthy as it gets
Cons: some people might think: small servings, a little bit hard to find

not pure vegan! still very good!

Posted on 08 / 09 / 2014

We came here somehow thinking this was a vegan restaurant/café because on the sign it said vegan love and there was a lot of soy in the menu. So we tried the carrot cake and thai coffee, both was very good. The second time we came here we asked if all the cakes are vegan and found out that in fact none of then are, except the gluten free vegan muffins which were sold out. Turns out the Thai coffee last time was also not vegan, although when asked for it they will make it with soy milk, which is very tasty.
I don't know if assuming this was a pure vegan place was completely our fault...
Still, the atmosphere is amazing, the people here are very friendly and I all the vegan food and drinks we had was lovely!

Pros: nice atmosphere, super friendly staff, tasty
Cons: not pure vegan, only open a few days a week
