Firstly, I'll preface this by saying the food was pretty darn good.
But that isn't what annoyed me about Dada Kafe. It was the staff. Now, I know it's not a nice job, being a waitress/waiter, but there are plenty of other vegan friendly places here in Chiang Mai, and every single one of them has had better waiting staff than Dada Kafe.
Firstly, I saw that they had Bruschetta on the menu. Now I love Bruschetta. So when the waiter came over I asked for it, but minus the butter it usually came with, for obvious reasons.
He then asked me why I didn't want the butter, which you just don't do to begin with. I explain, in Thai too, that I'm vegan, so I don't eat any animal products or by-products. He then replied with "it's good butter though". At that point I just gave him my meanest eyes (Haha) and he wrote down no butter in the end.
Onto the food, I had the bruschetta (Minus the butter), which was really good. Fresh tomatoes, crunchy bread. Good stuff. No need for the butter at all. I also had a plate of fried vegetables, Thai style, which was really tasty, and a plate of brown rice, which was ok.
I also tried the Mango/Orange/Banana/Passionfruit smoothie, which was actually very good. Thumbs up for that one.
I then turned around and noticed the same waiter from earlier just sat on my rented moped with the helmet on his head, and pretending to drive it to impress his buddy. Very immature, and could've easily damaged it and I would've had to fork out to repair it if anything happened. Just unprofessional to be honest.
So all in all I'd probably avoid this place from now on.
Aum is a million times better, and a little cheaper, so try that instead.Pros: Good smoothies, Good location, Tasty vegetables
Cons: Bad service staff, Expensive for Chiang Mai
