like the previous reviewer wrote, you can easily find this Food stall when you leave the Shopping mall Emporium by the back door. You'll recognize the vegetarian Food stall by ist many yellow flags with red characters on it.

the Lady could speak enough English to explain me that I can get Rice and then it's 30 Baht per "topping" i choose. there were like 12 different things to choose from, some with mock meat, a few just veggies. i got 2 toppings but just smaller portions and paid 30 Baht.

I Chose a coconut Curry with mock meat and some green veggie with Tofu. i wanted to choose sth else originally but i spotted a black hair in there. :(

there are plastic tables with chairs for you to sit. the Portion might be on the smaller side for some People. the topping were quite spicy for me. taste was okay but nothing extraordinary in my opinion.
i talked to a local and an expat and they said this is the best vegetarian place to eat in all of Bangkok.

if i'm not mistaken there are 2 veggie stalls next to each other, at least they both have the same flags. i went to the one that's closer to the entrance of Emporium. served Thai Food.

Update: went there again today. feel like i got a bigger Portion this time. was tasty!

Very good noodle soup

Posted on 06 / 29 / 2013

I only managed to go to this place once and the noodle soup I had was really good. It had much more veggies in it than at most places and different mock meats. One soup costes 30 Baht. It has a really authentic street stall feeling, which is really difficult to find if you're veggie. I'm always jealous of meat eaters who can just sit down at any random street stall and get really tasty food wherever they are in Thailand.

If you're inside the India Emporium, you can walk straight out the back door and you'll run straight into the stalls. There is also a veggie Indian stall selling samosas, pakoras and aloo tikkis on the left side of the India emporium and a veg Indian and veg Thai stall in the food court of the emporium (next to other Indian stuff, which is already very veg-friendly).

Pros: Authentic , Delicious
Cons: maybe too hectic for some, not for me

excellent food and good service

Posted on 12 / 26 / 2012

I have been to these places a few times. Most of the people eating are employees from the India Emporium. The food is tasty and consistent in high quality every time. I especially like the noodle soup as you can add bean sprouts, thai basil, and pickle along with the normal variety of spices as you wish. They are quick style sit down on a plastic stool type of places with real local style and taste.

Pros: great taste, nice staff, local place and price
Cons: can be crowded
