Tiny, simple and pleasant

This is certainly not a place to go if you're really hungry, since the selection is quite limited and the amount you get is quite small. The lady who runs it however is a delight and her food is simple but tasty.
Its says in the restaurant description here on happycow that the mock meat is home-made. We confirmed today that this is not true - they are imported from Taiwan. We avoided that without too many problems though as it was sold separately from the other dishes and was definitely optional.
We had a red curry, a thin chili-vege soup, an eggplant dish of some description and another vege soup, all thrown over what looked to be brown rice. All went down fine. No obvious MSG issues but hey you never really do know in places like this.
The shop was clean, bright and pleasant and we'd have no hesistations popping in again for a quite bite.
We were still hungry afterwards so ended up checking out another vegetarian Thai place (more of a street stand with plastic chairs) that we found across the road. There were about 5 selections there, but we went for a green curry and some noodles. They were kind of average and had mock meat in them but were edible. Had the feeling this ones might have had more MSG in them, judging by the taste and the way we felt afterwards.
Lots of Indian places around the area and an interesting Indian temple to see as well, so not a bad day outing.
delightful owner, bright clean shop, simple but tasty food
small portions, not much selection, mock meat not handmade (but optional)
