Nice place - Edit

Now it's working untill 9pm

I have a breakfast there almost every day.

Unlike most of thai style vegetarian cafes it doesn't have a buffet. Whey will cook what you want. Whey have menu in English.

Recomend you to try "Japanese curry rice"

lots of cheap vegan options - Edit

I called into Jay Myjam Jay at lunch time today and had tempura vegies with rice ... there is an extensive menu located on a number of walls however not everything listed in the menus is available all the time ... the various dishes range from ฿40 to ฿60 each ... the food is cheap and tasty and the staff are friendly and attentive

Pros: lots of cheap vegan options

Best of the cheap restaurants in Chiang Mai - Edit

Jay My Jam Jay is probably the best of the cheap vegetarian restaurants in Chiang Mai. I love especially their soups. There´s so many things in each soup: different vegetables, mock meats, mushrooms etc. and they are great combinations with tasty stock.

Most of the cheap jay-vegetarian places in Chiang Mai and Thailand have only their buffet and a couple of noodle soups that you may order, but Jay My Jam Jay has a huge menu of soups, salads and rice dishes with toppings.

There used to be a restaurant with the same name and similar menu on the same road (Suthep Road), but more west next to Chiang Mai University campus. This restaurant is located more east, nearer to Wat Suan Dok.

There are two other vegetarian restaurants right next to Jay My Jam Jay. This is the one most east. The two other restaurant have the more traditional buffet-style food. Jay My Jam Jay looks cleaner than those two tothers. And this is open until late, unlike most jay-restaurants that close at afternoon.

The "spicy salads" are very hot spicy, you may want to order them without chilli.

Pros: Huge menu with great soups, clean, open late

Good Thai Veg Food - lots of Options - Edit

The good thing about this place is the unusually late opening hours until 10PM as most of these Thai style veggie places close in the afternoon. They also have both pre-cooked buffet meals as well as a menu to order from which is also pretty unusual. Order from the menu to get better dishes and better value for money, the served dishes are stingy for 30 BAHT each. The menu is also unusually huge and there are even about four or five different types of somtam (spicy salad) to choose from as well as plenty of other dishes plus snacks and sweet things for take away. They have drinks too such as fruit iced tea. All vegan.
They have a sister branch on the moat.

Pros: Late opening hours, Huge menu, All vegan

Cons: Buffet dishes are not good value

Quite spicy but they can make things without chilli on request.
Friendly staff with big smiles. Not orientated towards tourist market so their English is limited.

Amazing thai vegetarian food! - Edit

Extensive menu hanged on the walls, separated into categories - over 24 options of spicy salad! Options with mushroom and veg meats.

I had a misunderstanding with the staff (due to their limited english and my limited thai), but it turned out pretty well, I just left with an extra yummy dish.

Pros: Inexpensive (35-50 THB), great food, extensive menu

Cons: hard to find if you only know the name

I'm fall in love! - Edit

This place so good for me! Good menu on the wall (pictures with price). All dishes 40-50 baht. Very tasty vegan mushroom satay and fried mushrooms for take away on the stall. Staff is friendly, but not good English, but it's no problem, because you can make order on paper - simple write number of dish.
Food so delicious and vegan. I like this place!!!

Pros: Inexpensive, Tasty food, big portions

Amazing Vegan restaurant - Edit

This is one of our regular dinner spots - it's usually too busy at lunch to get a table!

They have recently expanded their menu from around 30 dishes to over 80, I kid you not. The menu used to only be displayed by pictures on the wall with codes, but they now have actual menus on the tables (which is better than staring just over other customers heads to decide what to eat)! Dishes are Thai prices 35 - 50 baht and Thai portion size (ie small to westerners) but that just means you can try more stuff!

Most dishes come in either mushroom or fake-meat-style tofu options. Both are delicious.

If you visit at night they also have a sticks stall out the front, serving various sticks grilled with dipping sauce. The brown ones which look vaguely like meatballs are amazing.

Pros: Massive vegan only menu, tasty stick snacks

Cons: super popular so table waits possible, no bottles water, bring your own!

Jay Mai Jam Jay, Chiang Mai - Edit

I ate here last night. It doesn't appear to be geared up for non Thai customers but that doesn't mean we were made to feel unwelcome. I regret to say that my Thai is near non existent and none of the staff seemed to speak English. Never fear, a couple of helpful Thai customers in there sprung to the rescue and helped out.

The food was tasty and inexpensive.

Pros: Tasty and inexpensive, Helpful clientele

Doesn't appear to be vegan - Edit

We were looking forward to this place but ended up leaving without eating, as we found out despite the name it's veggie rather than vegan and establishing what's vegan or not proved too difficult (partly because of the English / Thai language barrier but also didn't feel the staff really grasped the difference between veggie and vegan). It's a buffet style place with food on show, could see signs of dairy e.g. Cheese on pizzas, and showing them the V-Cards app (local translations for vegan) just got a laugh and a shake of the head from the staff.

Delicious vegan food behind Chiang Mai University. - Edit

This restaurant is on Suthep Rd. behind CMU. The whole street is full of restaurants. Jay Mai Jam Jay means extraordinary vegan or not so ordinary vegan. They have a variety of food and everything we tried, we liked. The rice dish is delicious, the thick Tom Yum soup is better than a fancy restaurant. They offer MANY Thai salads. A friend told me that their mushroom salad is awesome.
After 6pm, they get in spicy curry rice salad (Namm-Klook, แหนมคลุก) from another vendor packed in a bag on the counter, those are the bomb. I always get two for myself and it runs out by 7.30.
They also have hot pot soup, which is interesting, but we haven't tried. Their fried rice cake appetizer (Northern local food called Kao-Ram-Furn, ข้าวแรมฟืน) inside the front glass display is pretty good, but a little greasy. It comes with an interesting sweet, spicy sauce.
One of our most visited vegan restaurants.
Updated from previous review on Tuesday June 24, 2014

Pros: Variety, Delicious, Some unique dishes

Cons: No AC (but there's no AC everywhere), No website
