I had a massaman curry and my friend had a green curry ... both vegan and came with rice (฿220 for both) ... interesting cooking style (whole potatoes in the massaman) however the quality and quantity of the food was great ... very nice restaurant with heaps of vego options ... friendly staff with good English and an understanding of vegan dietary requirements

Pros: vego options

We found INA House through happy cow.
INA House- Indigenous Asia is a nonprofit initiative of the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP), it was established with the intention of increasing the appreciation of the cultural diversity of indigenous communities across Asia through a unique experience of different products and services, while also raising awareness of the importance of preserving indigenous cultures, traditions and way of life.
"INA” means mother in indigenous languages in the Cordillera, Philippines and also Malaysia, among others.

This place is not vegetarian or vegan but some of the items are marked vegetarian. We told them we were vegan and also requested for no fish sauce, no milk and no eggs in our food. According to the menu, the food is prepared with raw and natural ingredients, with no artificial flavours.

I really enjoyed how nice and peaceful it was at INA House. Food tasted great and felt like it was homemade with love.

Cozy and tasty! - Edit

Ate here twice on the trip. Very tasty vegan salads and a few vegan main course options. The seasonal Karen Tamarind shoot salad is bursting with flavour, as is the winged bean salad. Thai green curry is very tasty and has lots of vegetables. Also recommend the Chakma steamed vegetables.

Pros: Rarely found tribal foods

Shame not completely veggie - Edit

Would be great if this place was all veggie, but unfortunately it isn't. They do have nice vegan options though. They have four vegan salads as well as some other main dishes. Also sell tea, coffees and fruit smoothies. Reasonable prices and inside is quite atmospheric.

Pros: Nice vegan options

Cons: Also serves meat

Unique and delicious - Edit

We would have given this place 5 stars, but were prevented since they also serve meat. We ate dishes from the tribes we haven't eaten anywhere else in Thailand. Clean and good service. Centrally located. Try the Ahka Winged Bean Salad.

Pros: unique dishes, very clean, conveniently located

Cons: none

I go here every week - Edit

This restaurant is run by a non-profit organization for hill tribe people, and as such, has various hill-tribe dishes on offer.

Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, fair prices. Good coffee. The curries are alright, but I especially recommend the salads.

The Akhma pennyworth salad is my favorite - fresh, lots of fibres and surprisingly filling.
