Delicious Thai Food and Great Cooking Class - Edit

I went here with my omni father and ordered several dishes. To start I got a Thai iced tea with soy milk - it was a little weak but still good. We also got a green mango salad and fresh Thai roll. The Thai roll came with this amazing sauce and was light and refreshing. The mango salad I wouldn't order again as it was too acidic and had an odd taste.
The show stoppers were the pad Thai. My dad said it was the best thing he'd eaten in months! The thick curry was also really good.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for vegan food in Bangkok!

ETA I did the one day Thai cooking class today and would highly recommend. Now I feel confident that I can make authentic (ish) Thai dishes at home :)

💚 love 💚 - Edit

Great food, try all the thai dishes your carnivore friends talk about - vegan style! I totally recommend the papaya sallad, pumpkin hummus, pad thai, any of the curries... if you have a day to spare, take a cooking class - best invested money ever!

Pros: friendly, vegan, awesome

expensive, great food - Edit

Good food, pleasant atmosphere, insane prices! Go for the rice and soup as the “full spread” option is 40 baht more and you get a tiny salad. Much cheaper options available, but a nice splurge

Pros: excellent food

Cons: no WiFi (why is this even possible), expensive $$$$, misleading menus

one of my favorite restaurants in the world - Edit

Been coming here for over a decade and the food is always delicious! Definitely go for the Saturday night brunch and take a cooking class. The cooking class is a feast in itself so go hungry!

Pros: delicious, good portions, good people

Dope Sauce - Edit

Authentic, quality, with plenty of options. They also offer cooking classes; Would love to have had more of an appetite as I only was able to get through the wakame roll and Tom Kah before throwing in the towel. All of the food around me looked and smelled wonderful. People were stoked. Service is drawn out, but that seemed appropriate. Very Happening spot in a quiet alley behind the BK at the east end of Khoa San, easy to pass by.

Pros: Authentic , OPTIONS OPTIONS OPTIONS

Cons: out of some of the more popular dishes (busy busy), the alley out front was pretty trashy and gross

Slow service and greasy food - Edit

We were really looking forward to eating at this restaurant as we always support vegan restaurants whenever possible. In Bangkok, we have had the pleasure of eating at Veganerie Concept, Govinda's Italian, Walee Vegetarian, and May Veggie Home, all of which we love. We were expecting similar quality, but unfortunately the food here was just too greasy.

We ordered the Coconut soup, Pad See U, and vegetable tempura and we could taste the oil in all dishes. The worst was the vegetable tempura which just seemed saturated with oil, we could only eat a few pieces. Due to the amazing reviews I can only assume it is not like this all the time, but on this night (Dec. 21, 2017) it just wasn't good.

One final gripe that worsened our experience, was the fact that we ordered two Iced Thai Teas at the same time as everything else, but only got them after the Soup and Tempura were served 20 minutes later.

If we make a trip out to the Khaosan Rd area again, we will probably give another vegan restaurant a try.

Pros: Vegan, Reasonably priced, Good location

Cons: Greasy food, Slow service, Unattractive decor

buffet is a very good deal - Edit

We also took thw buffet on saturday evening for 150 bht. It was very tasty even if it isn't the Restaurant with the nicest atmosphere. But I would 100% recommend it though.

Pros: cheap, buffet is fully vegan, stuff speaks English

Cons: too warm "inside" (there is just a roof but under

Really good and cheap - Edit

We liked this place, many options, but we acutally had better thai food at a place in Cambodia. But we enjoyed a lot and tried the curry and the rolls. So many places in bangkok so we did not go back a revisit.

Pros: Cheap, Easy to find

Cons: A little too spicy

OMG GREAT! - Edit

I AM BLOWN AWAY, THEY ARE HAVING ALL YOU CAN EAT BUFFEE FOR 150baht, the flavors are very perfect, and no tiny chilli bombs to light your fire. Not that chilli is bad, but for many falangs, it can be a hot experiance. They have a complete Thai menu and offer there own homemade drinks. i believe there are a few May Kaidees in bankok and chaing mai.

The Buffet!!! - Edit

I'm a fat vegan, and have been to my share of vegan buffets. This is placed in my top 3 of all time for sure. Everything was very very tasty. And a good variety to choose from too. They do the buffet once a week, Saturday at 6, for 150 BHT per person. I usually come here for the Panang curry for lunch which is phenomenal! But this was my first for the buffet. I will definitely back!

Pros: Amazing Food

Cons: There are none.

OK - Edit

The food is fine, and the Saturday buffet is a good value.

Unless you are near Khao San though, I don't think it is worth the effort to get there from other parts of town.

Pros: Buffet is good value. Vegan and vegetarian

Cons: In the heart of the backpacker district which is n

Our favourite place in Bangkok - Edit

We tried a few different places in Bangkok but of all them, this was our favourite.

All the dishes are authentic and spicy, the som tam papaya salad was delicious and freshly made. The tofu in the curries was nice and firm and well seasoned.

It was very reasonably priced and had a really nice atmosphere; very friendly.

Delicious food just off Khao San Road - Edit

We had a delicious massaman curry followed by deep fried banana with chocolate and honey. Our first time trying deep fried banana which we loved - we haven't found anywhere that does it better than May Kaidee!

Nice food - Edit

We had the spring rolls which were hot & crispy, mushroom glass noodles, pad Thai which had a bit too much peanut sauce for my liking, and pineapple purple fried rice which was great! Place is in a little Soi near Khao San Road so mostly a few tourists, and tbh is quite hot/not very nice atmosphere. Staff (incl. May) are very nice though!!

Pros: options on menu that AREN'T vegan is clear, fast service , nice staff

Cons: atmosphere, more expensive than most Thai places

changes over time - Edit

I have been coming here for more.than 15 years. It used to be cheap and great. Now that it turned famous prices have more than doubled, taste gone down as well (maybe due to Mai no longer here, she now lives in NYC)

Went there for the buffet on Saturday and that's highly recommendable if you, like me, always have a hard time choosing what to get (from the generally very large menus). The pumpkin hummus is the beeesst thing, love it

Okay food - Edit

In my opinion kind of overhyped. I ordered 3 different meals which were okay. It was around 300 baht in total. The staff is nice and the atmosphere is good. You have a good choice of dishes ( vegan pancakes )
All in all it's a good restaurant
