No vegan options

My partner is vegetarian and ordered a tofu baguette. I asked if there were vegan options and she said no. She was quite rude actually and said something about the sauce. Unfortunately although loads of vegan options and huge portions, nothing is vegan. Makes no sense.

Wer geduldig ist, wird satt werden

Leckere vegane Banh Mi mit frittiertem Tofu. Eine riesige Portion, allerdings wird nicht von allein darauf hingewiesen, dass die Mayonnaise nicht vegan ist. Da muss man von allein drauf kommen. Nach einer stolzen Wartezeit von 50 Minuten hatten wir dann ein riesiges Banh Mi, das ziemlich scharf aber lecker war. Aber nichts für „auf die Schnelle.“

Pros: Nette Leute , Riesige Portion

Cons: Lange Wartezeit, Soßen nicht alle vegan, kein Hinweis

We were in Pai in June 2023
Store person advised me they have no vegan options.
The Tofu and mushroom has feta and cow milk.

Cons: No vegan options

So enormous

I could see already on the pictures that you'll get a massive sandwich but in real life it looks even bigger. You barely know how to take a bite because it is so giant.
After finishing it I was so full and satisfied.
Also try to come early, once we went there at 6pm and they were already out of tofu.

No vegan options

I went there as it looked very good, and the woman in the entrance said there are vegan options, but the old lady inside that makes the food overheard the conversation and said she puts eggs and milk in every sandwich including the tofu with mushroom option so nothing is vegan there. Very disappointing.

Amazing sandwich - must go for lunch

Feeling tired after mopeding around pai Island? Feeling sick from the hours of twisty roads? Sounds like you need a deep fried Tofu sandwich!
You will not regret! They are incredible. A definite must try while in pai.

Pros: Vegan options , Friendly staff

Cons: Not a lot of seating

Not worth spending your money

We stayed 4 days in Pai and were happy that the shop was finally open. The days before there was a sign that they would be open the next day (which never happened). As others mentioned the staff is extremely unfriendly and rude. They didn't have Tempeh anymore so I ordered Tofu which is fine.
We had a bill of 200 Baht but she wouldn't accept our 1,000 bill. It was our last day and we didn't have any other option. She told us to go across the street and buy something from one of the shops and come back with smaller bills. We left.
I cannot say anything about the taste, though.

Tried to visit for a couple of days, every time I entered there was no tofu or vegan/vegetarian options as displayed on the menu. The owner was super unfriendly. As I sat with my friend who had a chicken Banh Mi, I witnessed the same unfriendliness towards other customers seeking a tofu Banh mi. The owner either would completely ignore them, or be quite abrupt and rude. Google reviews show this isn’t just my experience. Don’t bother supporting someone so unfriendly.

Cons: Never any vegan/vegetarian options, Rude owner

Huge portion, nicely fried Tofu

The sandwich you get is really huge, filled so much you can't even bite it 😄 I had the Tofu Mushroom Sandwich, both of which were nicely deepfried. Not too healthy i guess, but tasty and not easy to find elsewhere. Towards the end of the journey through this massive sandwich it got a bit dry though.

Pros: Huge portion, very filling , Good price for what you get, Tasty

Cons: Shop is often randomly closed, Bit dry, Not the friendliest staff

GIANT PORTIONS ans pretty decent for the price

If you want to fill up this will definitely do the trick. It was pretty tasty for 69 bath. The tofu and mushroom both are deep fried

Pros: Tofu mushroom banh mi is vegan (ask for no mayo) , Massive portion, Good location

Cons: Serves meat, All fried

Big portion

This place is not fully vegan.

The tofu and mushroom is the vegan option. When I tried it they ran out of mushrooms so I had the bahn mi with tofu only.

It was OK. Not the taste of Vietnamese bahn mi.

Cons: Bread

Cheap and filling!

Banh Mi stall in Pai is incredibly popular. We stood in the line for at least half an hour. There's one vegan banh mi (Tofu and Mushroom), if you leave out the garlic mayo. Banh Mi was huge and cheap for just 60 Baht, but not really comparable to the ones sold in Vietnam.
