First Review by peterstuckings

Passable sustenance - Edit

After stopping curiously one busy night but being warned by a woman there she'd been waiting an hour for her food, we went back the next day and had the big salad with nuts and the vegan burger. Happily, we only waited about ten minutes.
Less happily, the staff, while not actively bad, wasn't the best. It might have been nice to be warned that the big salad was essentially the same as the salad served with (and also essentially on) the burger. The meal was largely shredded cabbage and carrots.
Kind of nitpicking now, but we shared both items and were just given a second bowl to dump half the salad into. That kind of salad isn't easy to manoeuvre without proper tools! The guy serving us was kind of fumbling over himself the entire time too.
We took the last of it home as we got tired of eating the same thing, and bagging it up somehow took several minutes. Can't really recommend this one sadly.

Pros: Thai and western dishes, Relaxing space

Cons: Pricey, Some dishes uninspired, Staff left something to be desired

Pros: beaucoup de choix typiquement vegan

Excellent vegan food - Edit


We had a free day on Saturday so decided to take a walk around the Old City. The Bodhi Tree was the nearest vegan-friendly cafe so we headed over there. Am so glad we did as the place was so nice and serene and the food was excellent.

We tried the following:
1. Red Curry with mixed vegetables & tofu 80 THB
2. Tom Yam Soup with mushrooms, vegetables and tofu 100 THB
3. Burmese Tea Leaf Salad (raw) 100 THB
4.Rice (we wanted brown rice but they ran out so we had sticky rice and a bit of brown rice) 20 THB
5. Apple & celery juice 80 THB

I liked how they had an entire page of raw food on their menu. All vegan options are clearly marked. In fact, they state on their menu that all dishes can be turned into vegan dishes - YAY!

Highly recommended

From their FB page: "All ingredients we use for cooking like soy sauce, oil, sugar and salt are also exclusively organic. We do not use fish, oyster or any other animal product based sauces to cook our meals. We try to do as many things as possible ourselves like drying our own herbs and fruits for our sweets, making our own mayonnaise, nut milk, yoghurt, salat sauces, dips, sweets etc.

Any preservatives, additives, MSG, GMO, refined sugar and salt etc. are strictly banned from our kitchen."

nothing special - Edit

Hippie/yogi cafe with ok food. Service was good and was relaxing sitting in the peaceful cafe but lots of other veg places with better food. Had to add chilli and soy to my morning glory and fried rice for the first time during my travels.

Pros: peaceful, relaxing

Cons: food lacked flavour

Everything was beautiful - Edit

What a stunning little cafe on a calm peaceful street. The food was perfect, so tasty, and prepared swiftly even though they make everything from scratch. Loved it.

Pros: Full of vegan and raw options

Laid back vibes with decent food - Edit

I came here once - I ordered the "pancakes", only to be disappointed to be served just one pancake. Although the serving size was small, the pancake was actually really well made! It would've been nice to get a stack of three.

I would usually give this a 4, but unfortunately the restaurants serves dairy and (I think) eggs, so I'll have to take it down to a 3.

Pros: Well made food, Good value, Easygoing vibes

Cons: Serves eggs and dairy, Small serving size (from my limited experience)

not the best :( - Edit

We might've just been unlucky with this one but it was not really the best experience, food-wise. My mom and I were actually going to the original Bodhi Tree Cafe for breakfast but it was closed, so we just went here instead. We both ordered the muesli and fruit with vegan yoghurt and it wasn't really anything special :(( I ordered a juice as well and it was kinda warm when I got it and the taste wasn't too good either

Hit and miss - Edit

Our food took forever to come out despite the place being quiet. The sandwich was fantastic, the raw banana ball was good, but the avocado soup and som tam were average at best. Don't think I would go back to this restaurant.

Nice spoons poor service - Edit

We were not so impressed with this place. The service seemed poor, the food pretty standard and no drinking water. We ordered a red curry and it lacked favour. But the menu is extensive and varied.

However if you like chunky spoons and leafy bowls this is your place.

Pros: quiet, chunky spoons, extensive menu with vegan options

Cons: poor service, poor flavour, no free drinking water

Very unfriendly staff - Edit

The second brunch of Body tree was a not good experience . We went for breakfast and ask for vegan options . The staff barely can understand English . We ask for hummus and only after 40 minutes they told us it wasn't available . The breakfast set was very poor and they made us pay like a whole one even if we couldn't eat some things . A suggestion to the owner : hire people that can speak English and are more polite .

Awful service! - Edit

Had to wait 50min to get my sandwich, the guy who worked there was so confused about our orders. Tried the pumpkin soup earlier and it was very watery, not tasty at all.

what the hell! - Edit

the restaurant itself is super chill and the food was pretty decent but the service was horrible. We ordered first and literally all the other 4 people in the restaurant got their food before us. After 35 minutes of wait for our drinks!!! We got them and after noticing that all the other customers got their dinner we asked the owner where is our food and he said he was sorry and there was a mix up so it will take a few more minutes. The minimum thing to do in this situation is to tell your customer your food is delayed and offer something. After 45 minutes we finally got our first dish and he got it wrong and forgot the rice we ordered so we had to remind him again, again and again. Worst customer service I ever got in Thailand and he did not even made ends meet to please us.
Never coming back to this place again, just go to the 7 eleven.

Kind of dissapointing - Edit

Read a lot of good things about it, but we were not happy. The cappuccino was cold, twice we got the wrong cake, and the check was not correct either. Maybe it was the wrong day, but unfortunately I can't recommend it.

very nice vego restaurant - Edit

I called into Bodhi Tree 2 this morning and had my favorite Thai dish, massaman curry with brown rice (฿120) ... the curry had great aroma, ingredients and it was the best massaman curry I have tasted in my travels in Asia ... the restaurant is located in small soi with good wifi and has lots of on-floor seating with low tables ... moderate pricing for very good food ... the staff are very friendly and helpful

Pros: good location, great food, very friendly staff, go

Great place to relax - Edit

This is the new sibling to the original BT Cafe down the road to the south (despite what the description above says), and is set in a large wooden house with high ceiling and plenty of fans and floor cushions. The menu is identical, featuring a range of Thai or Asian staples like stir-fries and curries, as well as some Western options like sandwiches. Also a page of raw food choices, and lots of breakfast dishes. Oh, and don't forget the smoothies and coffees, etc. Frankly, the space is preferable to the other branch. Enjoy!

Pros: Quiet, Relaxed, Great food

Cons: Floor cushions only
