Cheap and Cheerful

This is a great vegetarian restaurant located on Pra Sop Suk Road opposite the Bus Station and about 200 metres down, away from the main street. (There was another vegetarian restaurant in this location prior to Imboonbarame which was called Boonsita and its signage is still on the restaurant wall, so this may cause some confusion).
The food is delicious and serves are very generous, with around 10 different curries and stir frys as well as soups and khao soy.
We chose 2 different curries with brown rice for the grand total of 30 baht each, and this included condiments of cabbage, cucumber, sauces and chillies as well as a large bowl of very tasty, hot soup. The dishes are served at room temperature, which didn’t matter to us, as the food was so flavoursome.
We dined here a few times and were very impressed with the variety and freshness, not to mention, fantastic value for money. Definitely recommended.
Imboonbarame Restaurant is open from 7.00am until 7.00pm Monday to Saturday.

Pros: Range Of Dishes Changes Daily, Comfortable, Clean and Spacious, Very Inexpensive
Cons: Confusing Signage of Restaurant Name

This restauarant is NOT Boonsita. It is a bit confusing because that name is written all over the place. That's because it is the old location of Boonsita. For some reason Boonsita didn't took her banners with her when in august 2012 she moved to her new location. Now she regrets that but the new owner refuses to take away her name. In this way he trys to use the name of the famous Boonsita (she opened the first vegetarian rest in Chiang Rai). It all wouldn't be too bad when the quality of the food here was at good as at the originals. If you like realy good food go to the one and only Boonsita near the hospital at Sankhongnoi rd.

Best veg food taste in Chiang Rai

Posted on 05 / 26 / 2013

I eat several times there and it was always a great teat and portion. The owner is very friendly, but I suspect I get charged tourist prices - but nothing mayor.

Pros: great food, easy to reach location
Cons: at to a noisy street
