I got satisfaction.

Posted on 04 / 16 / 2015

5 curries - 1 looked like mock-meats-galore so didn't touch it but the other 4 were very tasty. Snacks were tasty too. Ended the meal with very sweet pineapple (didn't touch the banana.)

Had to use only one flat plate so gravy from all the curries were mixed up. On next visit will eat a little rice with only one curry, next serving will eat some more rice with another curry and so on thus avoiding the issue of curry mix-up.

All had enough veggies with some tofu mostly in fried soft tofu form. I picked mostly veggies with a little tofu. I thought it was a very good value for 120B.

Nice setting too.

Pros: Tasty dishes, Location, Good value
Cons: Read same menu everyday , Some raw salad will be nice, Some tea will be be nice too

down a dark soi.

the gap house buffet was delicious. we were very pleased with the flavor. i find the comments about it being expensive a bit odd as it is a buffet. 120 baht is still very reasonable for a limitless amount of food. they had yellow, red and green curries. also mussaman curry and a stir fry veggie mix when we were there.

while it is just off a busy road, the soi is quite dark and has an abandoned feel to it.

Pros: vegan and delicious. , free wi-fi if you need it. , inexpensive buffet.
Cons: down a dark soi., so many other tourists.

Great dinner buffet - usually has 3-4 vegan curries and rice. You can go up as many times as you want. PRICE WAS RAISED JAN 1 to 120B per person. Thats pretty pricey though I guess you can get your moneys worth if you get a lot.

Very tasty buffet with 4 or 5 different Thai curries plus rice and fruit. All you can eat for only 100 bhat (including water). Very nice place to sit, also there are mosquitos. I've been there many times and always eat too much.

Pros: Tasty

I have visited the buffet 5 times in the last month. The food is always the same. What I enjoy is that it is not salty and made from scratch. Some of the dishes have too much tofu, but you can choose the dishes that have more or all vegetables. Would be nice if the menu would change periodically as well as offer either a salad or soup dish.

The surroundings are very nice - lush vegetation like your 30 miles from the center, but your inside the moat.

Although there are a lot of other places that have very inexpensive vegetarian food, the combination of the soft music, authentic Lana/Thai style buildings, and the vegetation/flowers add to the experience.

They provide a very cold bottle of water for each table with the buffet.

Pros: Home Cooking., Not Salty., Nice Environment.
Cons: No salad/soup selections., Menu Limited and Doesn't Change.

The food is amazing delicious created by people who understand the "pursuit of the palate". I have eaten here at leaset 5 times and each time I have been satisfied even though the dishes are the same each time. I do not mind that at all. Always well seasoned and fresh.

The ambience is amazing too. From the music playing in the background to the friendly staff, this an ideal spot to meet friends or perhaps a date even if you are lucky. You forget that you are in the city with it's lush greenery.

Get there early. Just before 7PM if possible. Because the vegetarian buffet is only for two hours and food disappears very quickly. You can't blame anyone for that. For this 100 Baht treat you are getting your money's worth.

You can end the dinner with some fresh sweet pineapple or other sweet item on the buffet. Each time I've been there the pineapple has been sweet beyond my expectation. I can tell that someone is making sure the produce is fresh and ripe instead of just plopping it on the table just to say they have it.

I also signed up for the cooking class and was satisfied with the team and the operations. They make arrangement for vegans/vegetarians in the class. That includes not using fish sauce or cooking the spring rolls separate.

Gap's House you are the best! See you soon.

Sub standard food. Mosquito loka, and one mean old

New this place by the sign only as most mornings I walk past it coming from hostel. Intrigued by the buffet I and my wife show up for the 7pm start.
Was impressed by the 100b price tag and dug in and that's where it ended. The food was below standard, and was supposedly vegan yet I felt it either contained shrimp or fish or both. The mock meat was super chewy, which made me suspious. The owner "the dragon" yelled at my wife for getting a new plate as she didn't like what was on the other. 20mins in I was feeling sick and left to the bathroom to throw up my 100b worth.

Sub standard food. Mosquito loka, and one mean old lady. Not recommend at all! Safer to get 2 magnums from 7/11 than eat here.

Pros: Buffet, 100b
Cons: The food, The Mosquitos, The owner

The food was generally very good. Some dishes seemed overly salty. The woman in charge is kind of surly.

Pros: Good value
Cons: Miserable staff

very nice vegan thai buffet

All you can eat + unlimited water for 90 thb every night from 7 to 9, except Sundays. Dishes are (almost) the same every night - brown rice, one bamboo dish, three curries, one pot of steamed veggies, rice/sesame crackers, fresh fruit.

LOCATION ON THE MAP IS WRONG. (as of Sept 2011) From Tha Pae Gate (east gate) follow Ratchadamnoen Road west (=inside the walls). Take the 2nd side street on the left hand side (between AUA English school and a big tempel) - Gap's House is in the first block on the left hand side, the buffet is above the reception area.

Pros: all you can eat vegan buffet! :o)
Cons: same food every day

Best and cheapest VEGAN Thai Buffet.

I have been coming to Thailand for years and Gap house continues to have a delicious vegan buffet 6 nights a week from 7-10pm. Its set upstairs in a beautiful traditional teak house surrounded downstairs by a lush garden. They have about 8 dishes nightly of high quality food and its all you can eat for only 90 baht. A little difficult to find. Down an alley next to the American Institute. There is a sign in English on the main street. Highly recommended
