It's very good vegetarian place in central Chiangmai. It's very clean, spacious and feature nice variety of food. It even has a rice soup, not only noodle soup and khao soi as all other Jay cafes do.Pros: Central location, Lots of products for sell, Beautiful decor
Really cheap food but the dishes were a little uninspiring.Pros: Cheap, Big, Central
They have very good khao soi, noodle soup and papaya salad(25-30 baht). They also offer other veggie dishes in a glass case(good selection of mushrooms) with rice, some premade snack food, bakery items, and sweets. Some dishes are great and others are so-so. Free water, no fresh juices, sometimes they have fresh soymilk.
Very clean and with a spacious seating area(compared to similar places) with overhead fans. Very easy to find on the main street the runs into Chang Mai Gate. Large yellow and red sign out front and big glass windows. Notice board.

Certainly one of the best restaurants in this category in the whole of Chiang Mai. This style of restaurant tends to open around 6am and close mid-afternoon and my issue with a lot of them is that some of the dishes prepared early morning can potentially sit there for 7 - 8 hours at room temperature, all of which means bacteria growing and nutritional content diminishing. Tien Sieng only makes small amounts of each dish, replacing each as and when it runs out and because it has such a constant flow of customers it would be rare for any tray of food to sit for any significant length of time.
If you like spicy heat in your food, then you won't find a great deal here but that doesn't mean that the dishes aren't packed with flavour. Value for money is excellent with rice and two dishes currently costing B25.
Spotlessly clean inside and plenty of fans blowing to keep you cool on those scorching hot days from March through October.

Qaulitively and quantetively this is the best restaurant I know. For the price and quality of the food, I guess this can be the best restaurant in the world. Okay, maybe not the service, cause they dont come and take your order, but the staff is super friendly, there is always fresh food and mmmjammie the veggie sausages and the khoa soi and and and and, try it all!Pros: always fresh food, friendly staff, happily no smoking
I've been here a few times, and really enjoy the veggie khao soy, though the portion is a little small. The noodle soup is also good, though not nearly as good as the excellent one at Thai Vegetarian food. As for the pre-prepared dishes, they tend to run out early; I've been there at 2 p.m., and there's very little left in the case! Sometimes, they have good curries and fake meat dishes, but sometimes, the dishes are watery and plain. The som tum (papaya salad) is good as well, though no sticky rice. They also have a decent selection of snacks and sweets.Pros: Inexpensive, good khao soy
Cons: Small portions, Food runs out early
