Good choice of food. - Edit

There is a very varied menu with western style as well as Asian dishes. Staff are very friendly. As was just found the corner from my hotel I went twice. During the day it wasn't so busy but at night it was very busy but they still fitted me in as s single diner. Some people had to wait for tables so be aware of this. Despite how busy it was service was still quick and there were loads of waiting staff. A good range of deserts which is always a bonus for me. Food was good both times.

Pros: Choice , Friendly staff

Not bad...but my stomach afterward was very bad... - Edit

I was so happy to find this place after getting lost for 30 minutes trying to find it (I wish I remembered the exit # from the train to share it here, as that would have saved me a lot of time and effort).

The service here was alarmingly slow, but still very friendly. I decided to keep it on the healthy side and got an avocado salad, spinach clear soup, and the "steak kai' (a chicken steak with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies). I also got some ice cream (black sesame, which was fantastic) and a couple of desserts to go (chocolate cake--it was average). Nothing blew me away, but the quality of everything was fine (a bit on the bland side, but I didn't order anything marked as spicy, so that's fine).

The restaurant is spacious and welcoming, and the bathrooms are very clean. I left there with a smile on my face, and about 30 minutes later, my stomach was in some serious distress. Shout out to the bathroom at Subway on Sukhumvit for holding me down, or else I would have had a very unfortunate accident out in the street or on the train. After that, I was totally fine, but that has never happened to me before in my life and I don't know if it was the food, the water they served me there (maybe it was tap water?), or a combo of the two, but if I ever return there, I will definitely order with caution and then hang around for an hour afterward.

TMI? Maybe. But I couldn't write an accurate review with that major detail. Sorry.

Pros: Vast menu, Friendly (yet slow) service, Clean, welcoming space

Cons: I may have been served tap water...?, Food/drink caused extreme gastric distress

Tastiest vegan shrimp salad! - Edit

We've been here a number of times. Our most enjoyable dish was the fried vegan shrimp salad with thousand island dressing, but we also loved the vegan chicken and fish burgers, the fried rice with sausage, and more.

A real favourite in the Sukhumvit area!

Pros: Location, Fab food

Fantastic food and service - Edit

Couldn't wait to try May Veggie Home on my first day in Bangkok. Located close to my hotel, it was a no brainer to make the short trek out for dinner. Service is fast, food was beyond anything I could've imagined and I left wondering why there aren't more vegan restaurants back home in Boston. Definitely try the cauliflower wings as well as the pineapple basil drink. Everything was delicious and I would absolutely go back again.

Pros: Conveniently located close to Asoke station , It's vegan in an otherwise non-vegan city, Great food and great service

Cons: Loud local American expats couldn't tone down

Lots to choose from - Edit

I had a beef steak made from beans. It was dry and dense. Id pass on that if I go again. Plenty to choose from, though. Service was a bit occupied with their cellphones. lemongrass tea was excellent.

Pros: lots of options

Cons: bit pricey(but normal for bangkok)

Excellent! - Edit

Excellent food. Wide variety. Really succulent mock meat. I had dinner there and then lunch the next day. Ate until I was very full both times.

Easy to find.
Medium price. It's not cheap Street food.

Pros: Everything. Fantastic.

Cons: Medium priced, but worth it.

They have a big menue. Also some Japanes food and some burgers. And they have icecream.

Loved it Here! - Edit

One of the nicest vegetarian/vegan places I've visited - mainly because the owners have such a refreshing and honest approach to what they do, which is reflected in the good vibes of the place, the food and the people.

We tried a selection of dishes which were all equally delicious. I'd recommend trying the veggie chicken burger (served in a homemade English muffin), bacon wrapped mushrooms, and the Burmese tea leaf salad. Masaman curry is a favourite of mine and it was so nice to find an authentic vegetarian version.

We visited in the evening, and although nearly packed-out with diners the service was attentive, quick, and friendly. I live in Bangkok and it's great to have another veggie restaurant option, especially one as good as this.

Pros: Happy place to dine - very pleasant service, Great wholesome food, with a homemade feel, Fresh, healthy juices

Vegan and gluten free! - Edit

Not only does May's have amazing vegan food, they also specify which dishes are gluten free (almost half the menu)! They might have started adding more spices into the dishes than previous reviews because I was definitely sweating during my meal (maybe you just need to specify you want it really spicy). During my time here I tried the Papaya salad, minced tofu with herb, pad Thai, Thai iced tea, Cacao banana smoothie and the coconut ice cream. All of it was fabulous! Thank you May!

Incredible - Do Not Miss! - Edit

Wow, where to begin. The food here is SO delicious.
We ordered the pad thai, shiitake fried spring rolls, chicken, and sweet and sour chinese mushrooms, and it was all incredible.
May nailed it with all of these recipes! Not only is it generously proportioned, but the pricing can't be beat. It was by far one of the best vegan restaurants I have ever been too. Plus, the thai tea and coconut ice cream are off the charts.
Well done!

Pros: great food, great location

Cons: run down space, staff speak little english

ethics on point - Edit

This was our first all vegan restaurant experience in Bangkok and it's fair to say it put the standard pretty high! Staff were lovely and attentive and we really appreciated their vegan ethics. Food was good, but had little spice to it (probably accomodating for tourists). Yes, it was a little pricey for Thailand standards (around 200 baht per meal and the portions were pretty small), but still much cheaper than If you were to eat elsewhere in the world. Overall loved it and the happy vibes!!

Tasty, but not so authentic... - Edit

I was eager to try the Thai food here. But I was a little disappointed because they tone down the heat and the spices to suit foreign taste.

That's probably why most of the clientele are foreigners.

The food is tasty. But I like Thai food with the real kick. They substituted fresh chilli with dried chilli in the soup and there was hardly any heat (no kick!). The salad was also missing the sourness/spiciness I like.

It is good for foreigners who like Thai food but can't handle too much chilli. But I like to be perspiring when I drink my Tom Yum Soup :)

Pros: Wide Variety, English menu and English speaking staff, Convenient location

Cons: Spices reduced to suit foreigners

The Thai food is great, western food a bit bland - Edit

We went twice during our stay in Bangkok.
On our first visit we were absolutely blown away by the Massaman and green curries - so flavoursome and fragrant, and as a fairly recent vegetarian who went to Bangkok twice before as a carnivore, I can say that the taste comes very close to the original meat version of both curries. We were very impressed!

Second time round we thought we'd try the western food, but were left a bit disappointed. I can no longer remember what exactly we ordered (which is probably a sign in itself), but we both found our meals to be fairly bland and a bit dry.

Staff was friendly, but service a bit slow. Both the times we went they had several items missing from the menu - including staples like pineapple shakes.

Pros: Great for vegans who love meat substitutes, Great vegan Thai food , Friendly staff

Cons: The Western food is a bit bland, Service is a bit slow

average experience. - Edit

The chicken burger, recommended by someone here, was totally bland. Overall, May's needs improvement, but has potential. They need to improve their recipes. It's also annoying that they have a coca cola drink fridge. Not a good brand to support for any vegan or any wannabe-conscious business. Gyoza was not available, even though it's one of their signature dishes, and we were there at 1:30 pm, not late by any means. The space is nice and clean. But nothing to go out of your way for. A meal that was an L size came in a smaller narrow dish and rice was charged separately.

Pros: uses organic coconut milk, uses organic brown rice syrup

Cons: flavors need to be improved, didn't feel love or care in food, staff didn't seem too warm

Friendly, speedy, locals & tourists - Edit

Vegan restaurant, visited by locals as well as tourists, excellent variety of food, reasonable service and prices. In a nice touch they let you add own syrup to the smoothies, great for those of who don't like very sweet drinks.

Pros: Good selection of food, Add your own syrup

Great Vegan Standby - Edit

I seem to come here at least once every time I'm in Bangkok. They have a wide menu with mostly Thai some Japanese and apparently an excellent veggie burger I've yet to try as part of their western food section. I get something different every visit and have yet to be disappointed. The prices are fair for Bangkok though I wish the portions could be a tad bigger (you know us vegans gotta eat a lot haha).

Pros: completely vegan, variety, convenient location

Great food, great service - Edit

We came here on our first night in Bangkok, it was conveniently close to our hostel. Group of 8 came (1 vegan, rest omni) and everyone LOVED their food. It was a giant evening of "Can I try that," and was great. Fried spring rolls were amazing as an app. The curry was everyone's favorite. I came back the next day for lunch. Staff was awesome and helpful for those trying to decide what to order. Please note that if you go in a group and you want to split the bill, tell them as soon as you get there and are ordering.

Pros: Food, Location is easy to find, right by MTR and Skyrail

Cons: Remember to say separate bills

tasty and cheap - Edit

All food on menu is veggie. They use rice milk for milk alternatives. Food arrived quickly and was very tasty, quite a variety of veg in this dish, more so then when I have ordered it elsewhere. Price is cheap if you stick to the local Thai cuisine. But they also do Japanese and American style foods.

Pros: lots of choice

Cons: portions are small (compared to western size meals

Average at best - Edit

Felt rushed to eat and go. Food was delivered quickly but wasn't the best tasting and on the oily side. Atmosphere non existent, staff seemed cold and disinterested. The lemongrass tea was good and refreshing. Overall it was disappointing, however, and not worth crossing the busy intersection to get there.
