My omnivore friend who lives in KL said this was the best veggie Indian food in town, and I definitely was not disappointed. I went in for lunch and got a thali set (including an awesome beet dish, which I have never seen at an Indian restaurant) and a mango lassi for RM9. My one qualm with this place is that they were basically out of everything on the entire menu, so you kind of have to let them choose for you. Not really sure the point of having a menu if you don't serve anything on it. There is also a branch at the Batu Caves, and when we sat down the waiter was like "we are out of everything except rice." Um, ok.

Great place, highly recommend

This place is definitely one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in Bangkok. Nothing fancy by any means, but the food is amazing and the owners are super nice. Try the 'mysore rava masala' dosa or the thali set meal. Although the menu is limited, the dishes that they do serve are done perfectly everytime. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

The reviews I read on here before dining @ Tamarind Cafe were right on -- its expensive by local standards, but worth treating yourself to. I didn't think the smoothies were very good, but the food was delicious and there are so many choices that it's hard not to order a few different things. I particularly liked the teriyaki tofu sandwich. There is also a travel agency inside and new massage place upstairs that is open til 10 pm, 100,000 dong for 30 mins. Would definitely recommend this place during your visit to Hanoi.

Sometimes I go here with my Thai co-workers, but it's definitely for the company & conversation and not for the food. They do have a pretty extensive selection as far as veggie stalls go, but the food is very average and bland. Would not recommend this place unless you are desperate and can't find any other veggie food on silom.

I had been traveling for hours with my heavy backpack when I spotted this macrobiotic vegan oasis in the KL desert. A little pricey, but great food and very friendly staff. There are a lot of options on the menu, everything from tofu sandwiches to noodles to soy lattes. I had the chocolate sesame balls for dessert, delicious! There is also a small selection of grocery items, dry goods, and produce.

Great lunch specials!
10 Dec 2009
Nice to have an all-vegetarian option close to the financial district. As the other reviews indicate, the lunch special is great: $7.50 for a cup of soup, spring roll, tea, and a HUGE entree. Definitely enough for lunch the next day, so it's like 2-meals-in-1. The ladies there are super friendly and service is fast. The menu is expansive and everything looks delicious...I'll definitely be back!

My new favorite place..
13 Jul 2009
Usually when I make the journey over to Khao San Road, May Kaidee's is my restaurant of choice...until a few weeks ago. Wow, this place is awesome! The veggie burger and panang curry were amazing, and the "famous" apple crumble coconut cream dessert did not disappoint -- it was by far the best dessert i've ever had in my life. If the BTS went to khao san road i would probably be at this place every night. Highly recommend!

My mom had been hearing about this place for several years, so during her trip up to the city this weekend we planned our day around having lunch there. The hosts were very nice and seated us within 5 minutes, but once seated we waited at least 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge us. We had to ask our server twice for sugar packets (for our tea) and bread, then he came over to tell us that the pizza we ordered would take over 30 minutes and our next choice would take over 20. Finally settled on soup which also took forever. Overall, the food was very mediocre and the service sub-par for such an expensive menu. You're better off going to Millenium if you want to spend a lot of money on fancy vegetarian food. Also, this seemed to be a vegetarian restaurant geared towards the omnivore crowd -- no veggie proteins besides black beans and one dish with tofu, nothing creative or that I hadn't seen before. I was hoping our experience might have been a fluke, but after looking at the reviews on here it seems poor service has been a constant issue. Nice view, but not worth the money...there are too many good vegetarian places in SF to come back here.

Mediocre food but what a deal!

The buffet-style food was nothing spectacular, but for 5,000K i guess i really can't complain. Bland, oily, but decent and cheap. The plate is small, but its a good choice for a light dinner or snack. Also, the night market atmosphere is nice. From what I could tell, all 3 vegetarian booths at the market more or less had the same food.

OK choice for a vegan splurge
19 Nov 2009
After looking at the prices, I would have never chosen to take my boyfriend here for his birthday had it not been "Convert-A-Carnivore" Night -- on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, 25% off your bill if you mention the special. On the one hand, it's nice to have a fine-dining experience that caters specifically to veg*ns. The food is creative, seasonally-inspired, and well-spiced. On the other hand, it's sooo expensive, service was not that great, and the portions were tiny. Would recommend for a special night out or one-time splurge, but I don't think I'll be going back.

Good for snacks, sweets
30 Jul 2009
As the name of the restaurant suggests, sweets are the main draw here. You can also buy a variety of fried snacks at a window facing the street. I felt kind of weird eating inside the restaurant, I was the only farang and everyone was staring at me the whole time (guess the tattoos don't help the situation, ha). I was completely ignored by the wait staff, who stood around chatting with each other in the corner while I sat there starving and looking at the wall like an idiot. Also, the menu has no descriptions so if you are not that familiar with Indian food you are kind of in the dark as far as what you are ordering, though everything I got was pretty good. The sweets are a must-try. All in all its a good but very basic place.

I checked out the menu for this place online before going, and it looked amazing. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was kind of disappointed. The food and service were ok, but nothing memorable that would make me want to go back. I got the bbq seitan chicken sandwich which was decent, but nothing special. The bbq sauce was basically ketchup, and the fries were eh. Also, the food took quite a while considering we were the only people there. For being in a hotel though the food is reasonably-priced (60-130 baht per dish), and they have a lot of different protein options as well as a variety of styles of food (american, indian, thai). Might give this place one more try before i write it off altogether.

Decent but too expensive
12 Apr 2009
Tillie Gort's is as close to a vegetarian restaurant as we have in Monterey...unfortunately. The food is decent, but nothing amazing. On the plus side they have a couple veggie protein options, but overall they serve more and more meat and the menu has gotten way too expensive. $12 for brown rice, black beans, and steamed veggies? come on now, i could make that at home for like $2.
