239/5 Soi Kasikorn Bank (at near Khaosarn Rd & Banglumpoo post office), Bangkok, Thailand,

Spicy Thai food. Better to arrive when food has just been prepared. Difficult to find because the soi has no name. From Phra Sumen Road, take the soi just beside the Kasikorn Bank. Mon-Sun 7:00am-2:00pm

First Review by Krsnamayi

Good authentic vegan Thai food - Edit

I went there at 8am and there was plenty of food. The staff (elder lady) didn't really pay any attention to me and didn't know how to order, if I should sit down or go to counter. But a friendly customer pointed at the counter and said something to the lady.. She was preparing a take-away meal which looked really good, so I said I wanted the same. It was brown rice with some kind of vegetable and three of four kind of tofu/mock meat dishes. It was really good and a good breakfast (I enjoy real meals as breakfast). It was very very good and really cheap, only cost me 30 baths. I really recommend it. Not spicy at all, there is chilly sauce for those who want spicy. Also easy to find, the spot is well marked here (through the Google map).

Pros: Good steady breakfast meal, All vegan, Really cheap

Cons: None, except a bit hard to get attention from staf

Buffet food with plenty to choose from - Edit

Good food with enough to choose from the buffet. Quite some tasty meat substitutes. Food is being made in the morning so better come a bit early. Sweet people and local-style restaurant.

If food is a bit bland spice it up! :)

Pros: Cheap, Local style

Cons: Food can be cold later on the day

down a soi... - Edit

yes it's a bit hidden, but we found it. we arrived around 10am and most of the food was gone. what was left was a bit cold. it was delicious though. a plate of rice and two curries was 30 baht. so it's a deal really. i'm not sure why the listing says spicy thai food. when we went, none of the dishes were spicy. it was tasty though.

Pros: vegan, quiet soi, super cheap

Cons: get there bright and early

didn't find it - Edit

not really a review, but we wasted a couple of hours trying to find it - not a chance. would've loved to go there but took a taxi to loving hut instead...you really should know your way around Bangkok if you wanna eat there

Cons: hard to find, impossible to find, where the f**k is it

Real Thai Vegan Food - Edit

Rather than dropping 80B (and 20 more for rice) on a mixed veggie stirfry at a place full of farangs, check this place out. 50B gets you a plate of brown rice, a couple scoops of whatever Thai curries and stir-fries are on the buffet that day, and a little piece of mock meat. They also have a small English menu now where you can order fried rice, fried noodles, and the like. They have a nice selection of mushroom dishes, and the best Pat See-ew (like Pad Thai, but with fatter noodles) I've had in Thailand, chock full of cabbage, basil, mushrooms, and other good stuff. Only 35B!

The staff is reserved but sweet - visit a few times a row and they'll warm up to you and shower you with free bananas.

Pros: authentic Thai vegan food, fantastic Pat See-ew, cheap cheap cheap

Cons: Ambiance is nothing special, buffet dwindles after 1pm, not open for dinner

Good and cheap - Edit

It is lovely to find such a good, cheap veggie place so close to where all the cheap guesthouses are. The other veggie places in Banglamphu are quite expensive. This one is perfect for breakfast and lunch. All the pre-made stuff I've tried so far was really tasty and it's really authentic. It's quite hidden but if you're walking on the Thanon Phra Sumen you'll see a side-street full of food stalls next to a bank and that's where it is

Pros: Yummy, Cheap, Authentic

Cons: Closes too early

Still great - Edit

I have been eating at this place for over 12 years and its still good. A bit less clean than before but the food is still tasty. It does close around 1pm or whenever they run out of food. Truly a local place and the price is the price for everyone. Nice juices in the fridge, soy milk in the morning and some type of dim sum available. Sometimes brown rice as well. Noodles and freshly cooked dishes are possible upon request.

Good food and very cheap - Edit

A very thai style restaurant with good and cheap food! One dish costs less than 1 euro and they have many kinds of fake meat. One of the best places if you like the thai kitchen!

Pros: good food, cheap, thai style

Cons: close 2 pm, non smoking

sweet, almost hidden little place - Edit

very cool little place... had to track it down but it's really not that hard to find at all, just go down Tanao Road (the one where Khao San ends) towards the canal, it curves around and passes a little skate park. The small street is literally across from that skate park, looks like an alley but actually leads to a little bridge.

For me the food wasn't as delicious as Aroi or nicely presented as Mother and Son, but it had a nice authentic feel, lots of Thais eating there, and some really nice tofu and mushrooms going on. Pretty simple place but definitely worth walking the extra block to seek out. English was pretty non-existent.

Pros: quite tasty, authentic place, convenient

Cons: slightly hard to find, closes too early!

Great little joint! - Edit

Man I have to say that I just love this place! Although the selection of vegetable dishes are served cold (unless you arrive when the are put out fresh), you can also order some items to be made for you (if you know how to order in Thai). They make a great padthai for about 25 bhat! There is also an amazingly obese and cute dog who sits outfront of the adjacent shop.

Pros: Tasty/heathy food, super cheap, made to order items

Cons: vegegable selection served cold, may be hard to find
