Gut und günstig - Edit

Günstiges und leckeres Essen. Gut gewürzt, an Chili und Knoblauch wird nicht gespart. Ich hatte rotes Curry mit Tofu, Papayasalat und Reisbällchensalat für zusammen 140 Baht.
Alles sehr lecker und scharf.
Auch nicht zu vernachlässigen: Es gibt saubere Toiletten.

Pros: Viel Auswahl, Leckeres Essen, Sauber

Way better than your average food court place - Edit

I can’t recommend this place enough. The food was absolutely delicious, some of the best i had in my short time in bangkok. Got the red curry with tofu (so freaking good!!) , some pad thai, and a rice and cashew chicken dish and all of the food was great . Paid about 50 baht per dish.

You Exchange money for paper tickets at the food court go to the stall (called thai vegetarian) and write down your order for the chef who will make it.

There are a TON of vegan food options in this area next to the restaurant- punjabi sweets has delicious desserts (all vegetarian ask for vegan ones) and behind the india emporium there are three vegan stalls that make great thai food. There are also other indian veg restaurants (including one in the same food court as thai vegetarian) in the area that we haven’t visited yet. Futher into chinatown there are even more options. Definitely a great place to eat and walk around and eat some more.

Pros: amazing , cheap

Cons: none

Great Thai Food! - Edit

We found this place on HappyCow and went there. Finding the shop was not that hard although the name board doesn't say Kran Boom. It says Vegetarian Thai Food. We ordered the Thai Yellow Curry with a side of rice. The portion size was large and the food was very tasty. It is prepared fresh, hot to your order with the vegetables you pick.

Pros: Low cost, tasty food, Near other vegetarian food places, English menu with good seating space

Near Chinatown. Good, cheap, not crowded. Good bathrooms. - Edit

Indian Emporium, 4th floor, in front of the food ticket stand (you buy paper notes for the value of the meal you have chosen) I took some stairs up the right side, since the escalators are on opposite ends and I didn't see the elevator.

Shop front says Thai Vegetarian, but the menu cover says Krua Boon. Menu has English along side the Thai.

I ordered Pat Thai. It came with either egg or tofu (I never figured it out, since I don't eat eggs). I just left those pieces. The food was pretty good, and only cost 40 Baht (less than $2)!

Offers an escape from the sprawling Chinatown markets nearby.

Pros: Cheap, tasty, uncrowded, Escape from the heat outside , Bathrooms!

Cons: I couldn't tell if I had egg or tofu in my mea, Discovering how to get to the 4th floor.

Kran Boom? - Edit

In search of veggie food we looked for Kran Boom on the 4th floor of Indian Emporium. We have found a thai veggie food stall, no mentioning of Kran Boom so not sue if this was the same place.We could pay with food tickets bought from the ticket lady close by. The food was nice but quite small, cost 45 bahts. We had to write the requested food's name on a piece of paper and wait about 20-25 minutes to get it. There was also an Indian vegetarian place in the food court.

cooked to order in a food court - Edit

I was glad to escape from the heat and the scrum of Chinatown into the India Emporium which is a pretty interesting shopping experience I itself. I recommend taking the elevator straight up to the forth floor if you're hungry and meandering back down via the escalators, taking in some of the stalls as you wander and browse. The fabric floor is particularly spectacular - rarely have I seen such a concentration of lace, sequins, and gold thread. I loved it!

Anyway, on to the food...there's also an Indian Vegetarian restaurant in the 4th floor food court but I headed straight for Kran Boom, inspired by the listing here. I expected to see preprepared food I could point to and stood around looking confused for a few seconds when I saw only a few fried snacks and ingredients for juicing. The 6 or so staff working kinda did too until I said, "sawasdee kaaa" and someone handed me an English menu. The range was great and dishes priced between 40 and 60 baht which is cheap for cooked to order vegetarian food, even in a food court. Since it was my last day in Thailand, I couldn't help myself so ordered too dishes - the wonton and cucumber salad and tofu with pepper.

When my food arrived I wondered whether I would regret my big order...but it turned out fine! The portions are generous for the price but not huge. The wonton salad consisted of fried wonton skins (no filling, to my surprise!) with super fresh crunchy cucumber, tomato, spring onion, finely sliced raw onion, plenty of herbs (mainly coriander), and a lip-puckeringly tart citrus dressing. The tofu was silky but firm and it's sauce was warm and spicy with green peppercorns as well as cracked black pepper giving it heat.

Staff are nice, food is prepared quickly, food court is clean (if that bothers you). All in all, I'd recommend this place for a quick bite as a respite from shopping and exploring in the heat if you're in the area.
