This highly recommended restaurant is located approx 50m from the T- junction Langsoon Rachagarn road/ Kasikorn Thungsang road. Huge sign: vegetarian restaurant, can't be missed. From 16.00 hrs all fresh made food is with 50% discount to take away.

Pros: lot of choice, menu changes every day, airy
Cons: roof should be insulated against heat

This is one of the best vegan Thai style restaurants that I have found so far in Thailand. The food is all Thai of course but the selection is simply fantastic. They have so much! All the classic dishes and hot snacks and sticky rice style desserts. They also have a huge shop with natural products and also dried foods, canned foods etc. There is a large eating area or you can take the food away. I love it!

Pros: Huge selection, Cheap, Can shop there too

Nice selection of herbal product plus very busy veg restaurant. Its opposite Kohn Kaen NATIONAL museaum, please note there is also a Kohn Kaen city museum.
Its just behind the shops on the road side but well sign posted.
You buy vouchers, suggest 100 baht will be more than enough for 2 people any way you can refund the ones you have not spend.

Great selection of veggie food and nice drinks, herbal store ( got my sleeping aid here ;)

Highly recommended, no tourist were spoted during my 2 visits....

Pros: Food quality, herbal products, cheap

We enjoyed our lunch here. There are many dishes to choose from and the prices are low. Get there early cos it's popular and they sell out.

Pros: Great choice , Cheap
Cons: None
