Tasty cheap eats

I love this place, it has a run down feel to it but the food is amazing, plenty of choices, they give you greens and iced water to go with your meal, there is no pretence here, you get your food, pay and leave, a simple easy place to eat.

Pros: Cheap food

Homemade food and cheap

Many dishes to choose from if you go early...
The food is very good and tasty. Some of the dishes can be very spicy so better ask first. The ladies are super kind and "happy" people, even though they do speak little English they are always ready to help...
Local prices with free salad and free water.
One minute to/from the night market.

My go to vegan place in Krabi town

When i was in Krabi town for a few weeks with a healing broken foot I think I ate here with my girlfriend pretty much every day and sometimes 2 times a day. There aren't a lot of options in Krabi town sure, but I looked forward to every meal even after we had been here so many times. Each day they had something different to the last and there were some dishes that I would happily have every day!

It's very cheap to eat here and the food quality is consistent. Get here early in the morning to get it hot! And accept it will be like warm/cool in the afternoon!

The ladies that run the place are so friendly and always smile. Even when some naughty monkeys liberated a few of their snacks!

Pros: Excellent food, Good choice, Cheap

Cons: Often spicy

Cheap and delicious food

I went there several times during my stay in Krabi town. The food is cheap and delicious. For 40 baht you have rice and can choose 2 toppings. They have different topping options everyday. And you have also free salad.

Pros: Good price, Different options everyday

Good food with new choices daily

This place was a lifesaver when visiting Krabi! Only 60 baht for a plate with rice and two mains of your choice. So many vegan/vegetarian “meat” choices! The ladies who work here as so nice as well. Be sure to ask for the sauce with peanuts on top-so good!

Pros: Completely vegetarian/vegan! , Great prices, Friendly staff

I have tried the spring rolls mainly, was planning to try other stuff too, but I just couldn't let go of the spring rolls, they were so damn good!

Pros: Cheap prices, Pleasant service (nice people), Good food

Amazing food and variety, great price

I ate here at least 8 times during my stay in Krabi. The pricing system is a little complex (some toppings are 10 baht, others are 20 and some can go up to 30), but the owner is friendly and honest with the price. I usually paid between 40 and 65 for a well-varied meal.

I ate here every day. Staff are so awesome and it’s a true Indonesian experience. Food is all vegan and staff know what vegan means and are very proud of the food. Different meals everyday and they even made me pizza one day! They have vegan coffee sachets that you can have there and also purchase to take home. This was my highlight of my time in Krabi.

So yummy. Best vegan Yen Ta Foo!

We go there every day when in Krabi. I'm totally in love with their Yen Ta Fo Noodle soup. But also the other foods are very good. Some of their food can we very spicy so make sure to ask for mei pet foods if you are not used to spicy foods. The also have very good fake meats and fake fish. Most of the dishes are precooked except for the soup. They closing early in the late afternoon. Sometimes they are totally sold out. They are also closed on Mondays.

Pros: Delicious, Inexpensive

Good food for an even better price. I enjoyed a late lunch here and there was unsurprisingly not a huge amount left, but what I tried was good. Not the best food I've had in Thailand, but would definitely return.

Good food

The good here was good and quite cheap. The restaurant has a very homely feel. The lady was very sweet and helpful. Only downside was I got there later in the day and most options ran out by then. I would recommend going here if you are in Krabi.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Sold out

Must visit cheap food in Krabi Town

I always want to get here if I visit Krabi Town. The food is better here than in the other jay food place on the same street about 50 meters from here. It's a must to visit this kind of authentic sino-thai jay vegan food restaurant when you visit Thailand.

You may choose dishes that are readily available at the counter (just ask for rice and start pointing what you want to have on top of the rice). Or you can ask for noodle soup (you will point which kind of noodles you like to have, the noodle soup counter is a smaller one inside the restaurant).

Pros: Cheap, Different dishes than in normal restaurants

Cons: Not open in the evenings

Really nice!

Ended up having lunch 3 times there. First time the lady kept asking me what I wanted so I ended up with a plate full of everything and most was too spicy for me. I got a bit disappointed, but my fault. I came to try again twice and then asked for non-spicy options and it turned out to be super tasty! Rice with two toppings is 40 bath and you get extra fresh salad. They have different kinds of soy meat, tofu and veggie dishes depending on the day. You can also choose one of few noodle dishes from the menu (also 40 bath) and they are really tasty too - a big bowl of noodle soup with soy meat, tofu and veggies. Loved it!

It’s a fantastic ‘jay’ place

It’s a little old lady who barely speaks English but has a great smile and can’t do enough for you. Buffet and a few extras. Usually 40 baht for rice with two sides, free water, free salad with meal and free miso soup. These places are dotted all over Thailand and have a Buddhist heritage. Simple, yummie, real Thai food! Go enjoy it.

Pros: Lots of options, Super cheap, Friendly, community atmosphere

Cons: They speak little English (just point and smile!)
