Owner/manager is a true master of food - Edit

I never actually ate here as a regular customer, but I did their (fully plant-based) cooking course and got to sample a huge variety of dishes!

Diana, the owner/manager, is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about Thai cuisine, and wonderfully attentive to both her customers and students. I had so much fun learning, cooking and tasting her food. Everything was so flavourful.

My favourite was Diana's mango sticky rice. Be sure to get it with both black and white rice - it's a completely different experience! Most places usually only serve it with white rice.

I wish I could give this place 5 stars, but unfortunately it still has honey and dairy-based yoghurt on the menu.

Pros: Incredibly flavourful food at a cheap price, Passionate, masterful owner/manager/cook, Simple, comfortable environment

Cons: Serves dairy and honey

Take a vegan cooking course with Diane!!! - Edit

Diane taught us beautiful vegan versions of authentic thai dishes in her own kitchens and it was probably one of the best foreign experiences I've ever had! She is very passionate about her work and is so bubbly and wonderful to share space with :) Plus eating all the food you create is so rewarding and such a blessing when you don't get to cook as often as you'd like abroad. I walked away with a whole recipe book of new skills and a FULL happy belly :) wonderful food and experience!

Pros: Private Setting , Authentic dishes and knowledge , She threw in additional recipes free of charge

Cons: none

Without doubt absoulute BEST veggie food in Chiang Mai - Edit

Just fantastic food. Totally fresh ingredients, All cooked by cooking teacher. Simple menu... few curries, few Thai dishes, few salads, few soups, but all tasting great and feeling very healthy and fulfilling when you are finished. Very reasonable prices. Yes, the place is not very fancy, but has a great vibe ... very community feel. The husband is just shy and not very smiley (but not unfriendly ... make allowances for everyone's different personality). Mother and daughter are fun and friendly. Yes, it't often hard to get a seat in the evenings .... wonder why? Everyone very friendly and chatty here. Cannot recommend enough ... (oops, maybe this is a mistake ... maybe will become even more popular)

Pros: Best Veggie food in Chiang Mai , Very friendly vibe, Very reasonable price

Cons: Some people ignore those waiting for a seat

inexpensive and delicious vego food - Edit

Morning Glory is a family run restaurant serving cheap and delicious vego food that is mostly vegan ... for a late lunch today I had fresh spring rolls and massaman curry ... the vegies in the spring rolls were fresh, crunchy and tasty and the peanut sauce was very nice ... the massaman curry was really delicious and rates as one of the best I have tasted ... most dishes are ฿60 each and represent very good value given that you order off the menu and the food is freshly prepared

Pros: lots of vegan options

BEST THAI FOOD! - Edit

Though my entire trip to Thailand through north and south this was the BEST Thai food I had! All of the food was so flavourful and well made. We ate here every day because nothing else even came close. My first impression was it was a little run down and the man wasn't very friendly. I think it's just his personality; not super chatty. The woman was very nice and sweet. I'm assuming they get many travellers as customers and not so many locals because the man gave us a pen and paper and left. Assuming we write down our order we did. Everything came in good time and I was extremely impressed. My mother (a meat eater) didn't miss the egg her Pad Thai or any meat in general. She said it was the best Pad Thai she has ever had. The best green curry full of veggies! I can't say it enough how great the food was. And to make everything even better the prices are so cheap! 60 bht for most meals. I ate more than I ever had because it was all so good and at such a great prices. If I ever come back to Thailand I will stay at the same hotel as it's just right around the corner from Morning Glory!! (Chiangmai Boutique House) The location of the restaurant is on old town Chiang Mai and close to some great temples and about a 25 minute walk from the night bazaar! The restaurant in itself is a bit hard to spot from the street (I walked right past it the first time) There are lots of plans in front and it's to the left of a travel information store. Definitely recommend making the stop into Morning Glory!

Pros: AMAZING FOOD, Cheap prices

Cons: Its kind of hard to spot from the street.

one of the best - Edit

great place to sit and watch Chiang Mai go by and have some of the best vegan food around. All the dishes are well presented, good portions and extremely enjoyable. This place represents great value but not lacking on quality. The menu has some great dishes to choose from. I would say this is must visit if in Chinag Mai. Wine with the dinner would be nice though, but would not prevent me from coming.

Pros: quality of food is excellent , value for money , great location

Morning Glory does delivery which was always fresh and hot, it quickly became the easiest option for me whenever i didn't feel like going out for dinner. Their spring rolls are amazing.

Pros: Large menu, Hot food

Cons: Fried items can be a little too oily sometimes

Lovely Place with good food. - Edit

All of the meals except 2 are vegan. I liked the food. The owners of this place are very nice, the menucard is very nicely done and gives you also tips for the thai-language. Prices are cheap but not the cheapest around.

Pros: cheap, quality-food, heartwarming staff

Cons: small place, not much variation for breakfast

Delicious - Edit

A very nice little restaurant, friendly family running it, reasonable prices (every dish is 60 baht, extra rice is 20) and generous on the tofu. Their panang curry and tom yum are fabulous! Not sure why people keep going to that terrible veg food stall at the nearby CM gate when you could come here and have a much better meal for nearly the same price.

Yum! - Edit

I had the pad thai vegan from here and the spring rolls. Both were awesome. The spring rolls have a tomatoey sauce drizzled on top instead of as a dip, really nice presentation and tasted just as good.

Best vegan food in Chiang Mai - Edit

Luckily I traveller with a friend who was just as greedy and hungry as me and we tried a big selection of the dishes at Morning Glory. Though the waiting time was long it was well worth the wait! My only regret is we didn't have time to do the vegan Thai cooking course!

Pros: Fresh flavours, Offer cooking classes

Cons: Hard to find

Food Good, Service Slow - Edit

The prices seem reasonable at first glance but the proportions are small, more like tapas. You need to order like 4-5 per person for meal. The service is extremely show. Family run business.

Pros: great food taste, not afraid to use spices, reasonable prices for snacks

Cons: small proportions, very slow to get meal, can't seat too many people, small shop

Tasty food but very bad service - Edit

We ordered the Pad Thai and the Pumpkin Soup, both tasty but the portion size was rather small although the prize is a little bit higher than elsewhere in Chiang Mai (60 Baht). I also found a hair in my Pad Thai..... But rather than wasting a plate of otherwise good food I just threw it away and enjoyed my meal.

The service was absolutely bad. We weren't greeted when we entered the restaurant despite us being the only guests. Even when the waiter who seemed really bored wrote down our order he didn't say anything to us.

What a huge contrast to the service and happy nice people at Happy Green! Their menue is also very outworn. There isn't much love in this place. Can not recommend.

Pros: Food is okay, Almost vegan place

Cons: Hair in food , Bad service, Restaurant is a little outworn

Nice food, poor service - Edit

The food was fresh and tasty - though the main ingredient in my dish - the tofu - was absent, and when I asked about it, I was swiftly presented with 4 pieces of cold tofu on a plate to add myself. No apology or effort. I left pretty quickly as it seemed to be a bother that I was there.

Pros: Fresh tasting

Cons: Staff, Effort

Best Vegan Restaurant in Chiang Mai - Edit

We found this place because it was the only vegan/vegetarian place opened after 6 nearby, food is delicious to say the least, they make it according to every person's taste and need. We ordered the vegetarian "fish" (seitan) with seaweed and coconut milk, deep fried seaweed served with chili-mango sauce, friend bean sprouts with tofu, brown rice, and for dessert the black sticky rice with coconut milk, mango and banana. I got hungry just by writing this, everything was perfect and a great value. The place is run by a very nice and pretty lady who speaks very good English, she even offers Thai cuisine courses if you're interested

favourite restaurant in Chiang Mai, great cooking class - Edit

I absolutely love this place and could've visited it everyday! the prices are reasonable, pretty cheap actually and the portion sizes are definitely ok. the owners choose the ingredients with great care and cook pretty healthily, using only small amounts of oil etc. and I'm pretty sure you can aks to omit the oil or anything else completely. They do speak English very well for Thai people (:
We also joined the daily cooking class once for 1200B where we went to the South Gate Market first and then learned how to cook 14 famous, 100% vegan Thai dishes in a small group of 4 people. The teacher was super friendly and spoke English pretty well. We were even allowed to cook without oil if we wanted to and add spices as we liked.
a must for any vegan in Chiang Mai! (:

Pros: cheap, healthy, possibility to omit ingredients, f
