Only vegetarian food stall at central world. A decent tasty meal.
I love this place. I would frequently eat here twice per day while in Bangkok. Everything I ever ordered was super tasty. The staff was always accommodating and friendly. The most expensive thing on the menu was119 Baht.It can be a little difficult to locate, mostly because the mall and food court are just so big.If you are vegan and in Bangkok this is a must.Pros: Great Food, Price/Value, Geographic Location
Cons: A bit hard to find the first time
This was probably my least favourite and most expensive vegetarian/ vegan eatery in Bangkok. It is in the corner of a very clean and sterile food hall in the very upmarket Central World Plaza shopping centre. The portions were very small and choice was mainly mock meats and fewer vegetables. My rice and mock fish bits plus a few green leaves was 65 TBH. You have to point out to the staff serving what you want by showing them the photos of dishes on display.

Cons: small portions, expensive
A must. Pleasant view over city. Jay food, so no garlic, I believe. Lovely people working there.Pros: Pure, Flavourful, Staff
Cons: Gioza Lack Garlic, In A Mall
Talalask is arguably the best of the mall food court options in Bangkok. It serves all plant-based food, cooked fresh to order (unlike many mall stalls where food is cooked in big batches and served buffet style). The menu is somewhat limited but has reasonable variety (noodles, stir fries, one curry). Both brown and white rice are available (and the brown had good flavor and texture).
The two dishes i sampled were tasty and well-prepared. There were also very (authentically) spicy. I'm a person who enjoys a fair bit of spice, but i had to remove all the chilis, and even then it was about as hot as i could comfortably eat. Moral of the story: if you like yours on the milder side, ask them to hold the chili (and that won't be difficult, even if you don't speak Thai, because you'll see them them chopping fresh chilis to prepare your order, and you can simply point to the chili and make it clear that you don't want any).
At 70-80 Baht for most dishes, the prices are quite reasonable considering the freshness and the location.
The food court was less crowded and noisy than others, and has some seats by the windows with pleasant 7th-floor views over Bangkok, making it actually a pretty nice place to eat.Pros: Tasty and authentic, good value, all plant-based
Confirmed open as per December 2013.
The stall is in the corner of the Central World Plaza foodcourt at tht 7th floor.
Fresh meals prepared on the spot. Rice, noodles, veggies, tofu, mock-meats.
I don't get some of the other reviews suggesting that this place is expensive. How cheap can they get before they are giving the food away? Because of language issues it can be difficult to find vegan food in Bangkok. This place is a sure thing -- you don't need to worry about fish sauce or egg being used, for example. They have a sign on the counter saying "100% vegetarians". I visited late morning and the food hall was quiet, clean and empty. I had no difficulty finding utensils and when I ordered in English the staff clearly understood me. If you want a cheap, easy and tasty vegan meal while shopping in Bangkok you can't go wrong here.Pros: Cheap, Fresh and Tasty
Location update: it's in the back of the food hall, walk through the supermarket till 'Flavour Foodcourt'. The stall is near entrance, the last one in the row. Dishes from 50 baht.
Review: amazing taste! They do dishes you find with meat on the street, like Hainan chicken and rice, or grilled duck. Huge variety of mushrooms, if you don't like mock.

Located on level 7 of Central World's food hall, its a nice little surprise for us. We were staying at the Centara and thought we're stuck with burgers or had to go elsewhere. Instead, we've got a nice little base here. Basically, it's like the other food stall dotted around. Cheap, nice, Vegan food. Try their chicken rice, but be early though, it sells out quick.
Love their Thai style spaghetti.
By the way, this is one of three
Cheap and okay food. A bit tricky to find, but don't give up. Obviously not a very nice setting since it's a mall food court.Pros: Cheap
Cons: A bit hard to find
Best mall good by far. Not expensive and should only have one $. I'm cheap and this place is not too pricey at all. 50 baht a dish here.Pros: mmm
The Central Mall is ridiculously HUGE and has several food areas and stalls so it's worth noting that Talalask is a stall within the Food Court - this is a separate Court on 7th Floor with food stalls arranged around a seating area with red-orange chairs. At the entrance you are given a plastic card like a credit card that the stallholders can add your purchases to and you pay for everything at the exit.
Talalask is not well marked. We found them in the corner at the end of the row of stalls to the left of the entrance. The food pictures had "talalask" in one corner each which was the only indication we had that we had found the right place!
Most of the signs are in Thai but It's easy to order as they have pictures of the dishes in front of the stall with the prices and everything is vegan. Some dishes were made fresh to order but there were also some curries on hot plates.
We had jumbo noodles pad thai with tofu and fake meats, steamed rice and a spicy mock-meat curry, and got some drinks from another stall. Prices are pretty cheap: 50-75 baht per main dish and the portions were generous. The really fat jumbo noodles were good and everything had lots of flavour.Pros: Vegan, Range of dishes, Price
Cons: Hard to find, Need better signs!
Enter the foodcourt and proceed to the far left corner. All the dishes are pictured in front of the stall. Just point at what you want, staff does not speak English. Really delicious food. A little more expensive than other foodcourts, but still cheap. A variety of Thai and Isaan dishes.Pros: Price, Delicious
Small stall up the back corner of level 7 food court. It's in the part where you get a card to rack up all you meals with.
English isn't too good but easy enough to point at things if your out of luck.
Rice with 2 dishes was about $1.50usd for a huge plate. Get the mushroom sticks as well. Great for a mock quick meal
They've recently expanded their menu and now offer a good variety of Thai, Isaan (Northeastern Thai) and also some Western options. I would recommend any Isaan option for a real Thai experience (only if you love reeeeally spicy food!)
As commented by other reviewers, some dishes are a bit expensive (max 120 baht), but they also offer some cheaper options. For lunch, besides the fixed options on the menu, you can also choose among 3 pre-made dishes for a cheaper meal (2 options + rice = 60 baht).
In the same food court, there's another stall selling vegetarian papaya salad (som tum jee) and sticky rice. It's a good alternative too, though this stall is not specifically for vegetarian food.Pros: vegetarian versions of isaan dishes, good variety, good view over Pathum Wanaram temple
Cons: food court (can be packed and noisy)
This stall name "Talalask" located on central food hall at Central world 7th fl.
Vegetarian food all year, more menu now and a portion a bit big[for me].
Mostly Thai and chinese dishes but also has few western dishes nowaday. Some dish especially soup maybe a bit salty but if you don't like you can tell the staff when you order.
Mock meat varieties available. Non dairies....so it's another good choice for vegan when anyone want to find veg food in the department store.
About the price.....not that cheap but can be understood due to the location.
I wanted to find a veg stall on foud courts in Central World. And I did. But the food there wasn't cheap or tasty. It's salty, portions are small. The prices are higher than usual, about 60-80 per dish. Stalls nearby aren't cheap as well. Maybe, it's just the place. Utensils aren't easy to find as well. No tissues. No toilet on food court.
Cons: Salty, Small portions, Not comfortable overall
