976/17 Soi Rama 9 Hospital, Hwaykwang, Bangkok, Thailand

Great place, once we found it!

26 Dec 2009

We eventually found Anotai - after a few conversations between the staff and our taxi driver. Once we reached the plaza the staff at Anotai were waiting outside to greet us - goood job as the lights outside were not working so we couldn't see the name of the restaurant (it was early evening). The staff happily explained which dishes on the menu were vegan - not as many as I'd hoped for. We did enjoy the deep fried tofu and the amazing dip! My prayers were answered when I found out the fruit crumble (berry crisp) was in fact vegan too! An enjoyable meal, although it was a bit of a trek to get there from the centre of Bangkok.

My introduction to raw food - surprisingly filling

26 Dec 2009

A friend and I visit Ariya one evening for dinner - I was a bit scepticle that I would be filled on raw foods ... but I was to be proved wrong. We ordered the soup - avocado, which was smoothly delicious. I normally take my soups warm, but this cold offering was a pleasant surprise. The raw pizza was equally surprising (the staff at Ariya spent sometime confirm that I wanted raw pizza and kept explining that is wouldn't be anything like the pizza on offer at the pizza chain opposite ... I got it!) Lot's of tasty salads and smoothies topped off a pleasing meal. I'd like to go back there when I'm next in Bangkok.

Delicious home cooked delights

26 Dec 2009

This is a small family run restaurant that has been open almost as long as I've been alive! Whilst we ate Mai Kaidee popped in wearing traditional dress and bringing 2 travellers who were looking for a place to stay. Mother Chai was very welcoming and was able to let me know all the vegan dishes - the curries were rich and tasty and the juices freshly squeezed. The menu is similar to that offered at the nearby Mai Kaidee restaurants but I found the service even more personal. An eclectic misture of customers - every table was full! We'll be back!

Vegan heaven in Bangkok!

26 Dec 2009

I've now been to Ethos on 4 separate occasions and have always left full to the brim. Highlights off the menu include the falafels, banana coconut shake, apple crumble and custard ... mmmm! It has a homely feel, but could do with a new coat of paint so that the interior matches up to the quality of the food. Can't wait to go back!

Upmarket ambience

26 Dec 2009

It was real easy to find Khun Churn, which is always a bonus when searching out the great vegan eateries here on HappyCow. We enjoyed everything we ate and the menu was extensive - my Thai friend was able to check which dishes were vegan - my Thai is limited, as was the waiter's English. Will definitely head back to Khun Churn soon.

Loving the speed of service

05 Nov 2009

A friend and I visited Loving Hut last night as part of our mission to track down the best vegan eateries in Bangkok. It was a pleasant journey down the river - even if I did feel a bit of a fraud walking through the Marriott hotel in a bid to find the Royal Plaza. Initially we thought it had relocated as we looked at the plan of the plaza - however as it is so new it's position hasn't been updated on the map. If you walk through the plaza from the Marriott and take a left at the end, following the walkway round you'll soon find it on your left. It's very white inside - a bit too bright for us, so we sat outside, which was lovely and quiet. When we arrive around 7pm we were the only customers there. There was a huge selection on the menu and we ordered several dishes. I was surprised at the speed of service - the first dishe had arrived within 5 minutes and all dishes were there in around 10 minutes. My friend loved the green curry rice and I enjoyed the fried mushrooms in an orange and ginger sauce. Our only criticism of the food was that it all tasted a bit too oily. The dessert was also delicious, especially the frozen blueberry yoghurt. Mulberry juice was the top drink that we ordered. All in all the bill was 700THB which included a special 20% discount as they're having a promotion as they're newly opened. The staff were fantastic and accommodating. I was surprised to see Loving Hut even have their own TV channel which was being shown in the restaurant. Definitely worth seeking out!

Rawness in a relaxing setting

26 Dec 2009

After reading the reviews for Rasayana here on HappyCow (and working our way through all the vegan eateries) we headed out to find this raw food cafe! It was about 10-15 mins walk from the BTS but easy to find using the directions. Rasayana is set in beautiful surroundings (we went there in the evening) and found this to be a relaxing dining experience. We ordered lots of delicious dishes off the menu - in hindsight we probably ordered too many as we were over full by the end of the evening. The starters - especially the tofu, were the most tasty. We ordered the black squid (vegan) spaghetti as we were intrigued - this was the least favourite dish of the eve as it did taste extremely fishy (I guess the clue was in the name)and we both found it difficult to enjoy. The frozen dessert was indeed frozen, but tasty nonotheless.

Mushrooms every which way! Mmmm!

14 Nov 2009

A friend and I visited Tham Na last night for dinner. It wasn't the easiest of restaurants to find as it was someway from the centre and not close to any BTS or MRT, so we took a taxi. The staff at Tham Na were more than happy to direct the taxi driver - it took us about 30 minutes to arrive from the centre of Bangkok. When you enter the restaurant it feels a bit like a French cafe/bistro, with small tables, background music and small groups of customers chatting away and enjoying their food. The tiles on the floor are also beautiful! We sat down close to the counter and the staff were very attentive - she apologised for only having 1 spare menu, but that was OK, we could share. All the menu is vegetarian but we were unsure which things were vegan as it wasn't indicated on the menu. The staff went through the menu with us explaining which items were either vegan or could be made vegan - really helpful! The first of our starters arrived not long after our fresh drinks. Angel fried mushrooms were good (if a little oily) and the tofu topped with 3 mushrooms was delicious! We also ate a fab pasta dish which included apple and chestnuts! Mmmm! Overall a good meal and we left feeling very full! Would have been great if there had been some vegan desserts on the menu ... maybe next time! Total cost for dinner and drinks for two was 450THB which is about $15 USD.

Fab find in food plaza!

26 Dec 2009

We visited the Vegetarian food booth for lunch during the 2 week vegetarian festival. The food had just been prepared and was piping hot (just how I like it). It was tasty and really great value for money - whole meal & drink for less than 100THB($3).

Sublime dining experience!

What a find! A friend recommended we searched for K'NYAY. After finding the K insignia adorning a huge stylish lightbox (near Independence Monument) we were justly rewarded as we came across a leafy villa surrounded by stunning ginger plants (which we later discovered to be k'nyay). The food certainly had a lot to live up to if the surroundings were anything to go by - by far the most stylish place we've eaten at in Cambodia! The menu is extensive with a range of vegan and khmer dishes (the khmer dishes were also offered as non-vegan, which is why it's not 100% vegan). The personable chef, Run, happily showed us around his kitchen (2 kitchens in 1) with separate vegan/non-vagan fridges/cooking utensils/preparation areas/saucepans etc, and all his staff were the epitomy of hygiene - a novelty for many here in Cambodia! The front of house staff were also friendly and helpful. Since visiting we've ordered delivery many times. It's fantastic to be able to eat so well, so often! They've even got a great website with the menu and other info about their set-up! www.knyay.com

Once found, never forgotten!

Mock meat central!

26 Dec 2009

I'm a vegan because I love eating vegetables ... not keen on places which make vegetables look and taste like meat. But having an open mind I was willing to test unchartered waters. A friend took me there on a visit to Bangkok. We enjoyed our evening but I found myself picking out all the mock-meat and just eating the vegetables. Not my cup of tea, but as it was busy I'm guessing it is quite popular. It was expensive for what it was.
