Simple and perfect

We live nearby and go there a few times a week. The food is really good and not too unhealthy, there is even the potato curry which is oil free. It is really cheap and the staff is incredibly caring and nice 🙂🙂🙂
We love it so much 🥰

Can’t go wrong

Stall in Maya Mall food court serving typical “jay” vegan fair. Look out for the red and yellow เจ flags! Point at what you want from the buffet and choose up to three toppings served with rice—a massive portion for only 55 baht! You also have the option of having it heated in the microwave so you don’t have to eat it room temperature like at many similar stalls.

They also have an à la carte menu with a couple of noodle dishes, a burger and some other sides. We’ve heard good things about the burger, which only costs 40 baht, but it was sold out at that time. We live nearby, so we’ll surely be back!

UPDATE, June 2023:
Tried the burger. Nothing incredible but a nice, quick little snack for only 40 baht. Definitely more of a veggie burger than meaty burger. Tip: open up the bun and add in some chillies, the ones in the soy sauce! Adds a good kick and the extra touch of salt it’s lacking. Buffet is as yummy as ever and continues to introduce new dishes regularly.

UPDATE, July 2023:
I just want to emphasise how adorable the guy is who works here. So friendly and welcoming, he greets us with a “wai” and a massive grin every time we go by, even if we’re not ordering from his stall (which we usually are, to be honest). Always brightens our day!

Tasty & cheap!

Yummy mild flavors, super kind staff, and very affordable plates! We tried rice with three different dishes plus a chive dumpling for a total of 70 baht (shared between two people.). All delicious. He offered to microwave the food to heat it up but we preferred to eat it room temp rather than microwaving. My only wish is that the food was kept warm (without microwaving). We ended up ordering some stuffed sticky rice to go for breakfast too. Overall very kind and worth the trip for the affordable plate!

Pros: Affordable, Tasty, Kind staff

Cons: Luke warm unless microwaved

Loved it!

Out of every vegan meal I had so far in Thailand this was my fave. Staff was incredibly friendly and spoke English. Even though it was in a mall it was super yum and I liked the seating area nearby. Highly recommend and would come back (also it was super cheap for a huge portion! I paid 60BHT)

Pros: Great and flavourful options, Super friendly, Good price and big portions

Cons: In a mall (but I didn’t mind)

Incredibly delicious!

There is such a huge variety to choose from. The hardest part is choosing what to eat! Everything looked amazing. I chose 2 items with rice for 40 baht and added 2 fresh spring rolls for 10 baht each. My plate was an explosion of flavour! The staff at the shop are also so incredibly sweet and friendly. I’d happily go back again and again! Easy 5 stars!

Pros: All vegan , Inexpensive , Delicious!

Cons: No cons at all!

Very affordable Jai food

There are so many options here every day. The vegan sausage and tofu-seaweed roll is sooo good. I think through one improvement could be adding more spice.

Pros: Affordable

Perfect comfort food

Situated in the Hawker market of Maya this stall has been a vegan staple there for many years. Lovely lovely owner - pick from buffet type dishes ranging from pumpkin curry to eggplant stir fry, mix and match, with rice or without. There's also burgers, sticky rice, etc. You can also order dishes 'cooked to order' like Khao Soi. Easy seating around and very clean. Good portion sizes and so cheap. I love it.

Pros: Delicious and comforting, So cheap, Clean environment

Cons: Buffet dishes cold and microwave heated
