First Review by Miggi

the Cheese is NOT vegetarian. It contains Rennet ! - Edit

** Can the owner/manager of this Restaurant please google the word "RENNET".
the cheese you use at your restaurant contains Rennet. (it is the an enzyme from a dead cows stomach.
please can you buy cheese that has Vegetarian Rennet or Microbial Rennet.
if you serve Rennet cheese, then it is NOT vegetarian.
** thank you **

I liked the food.
a bit too many Mok-Meat and Soy-based dishes for my liking.
Yes its a bit pricey, but the food was ok. and nice service.
the best part was the Homely-cozy Atmosphere.
nothing really stood out as amazing from the selection of veggie dishes we ordered beteen our group.

Many of the cheese brands they use at Na Aroon are NOT vegetarian.
they contain Baby Cows 'Rennet'.
i asked to actually see their cheese-packaging and I was a bit shocked to see all the cheese ingredients containing Rennet.
they did have ONE brand of cheese that was non-rennet, (i searched it on google to verify).
but all their other cheese was with RENNET and not vegetarian.
so if you are Vegetarian, do not order dishes with Cheese.
(and please tell the managment so they can rectify this big mistake).

Pros: nice atmosphere, nice atmosphere ;)

Cons: Rennet Cheese., not vegetarian, too much soy dishes

We are 100% vegetarian and when to Na Aroon and we loved it!

Even though they serve some fish (NO MEAT), they specialty is vegetarian food!
They have a great menu with various options and the food was really great!

Is a little bit hard to find, but when you do is a great surprise!

Recommended - Edit

We had a lovely dinner here in March 2013. It was a Wednesday night (I think) and the place was close to empty. We had way too much food. I remember we had a mushroom salad entree which was really good, then a couple of mains, one of which was a really delicious mock duck curry. I can't remember everything we had but it was all good. I would be likely to go here again next time I'm in Bangkok.

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff, Elegant old building

Cons: No aircond - just fans, kind of tricky to find

Plush but relaxed fine restaurant - Edit

The nearest skytrain is Phloen Chit - it's about a 10 minute walk from there to the end of Soi One, past the Bumrungrad hospital. The restaurant is part of the Ariyasomvilla Hotel which is near the end of the road.
This is a plush but relaxed restaurant set in an old-style villa with beautiful wooden carved windows and shutters, wooden floors, chandeliers and antique style furniture.
It's not cheap. Would be good for a special meal out.
They serve fish dishes as well as veggie food, roughly 50:50, but no other meat, and they understand the term "vegan" and leave eggs out of dishes as needed.
We stayed at the Ariyasomvilla Hotel so ate here a few times.
We tried the veggie set meal - an extravaganza that should only be attempted by those with a massive appetite and elasticated-waisted trousers! There were thick spring rolls full of crunchy vegetables with sweet spicy sauce on a bed of crispy noodles with fresh minty herb salad, pad thai, 3 kinds of rice with veggie "chicken" with cashews and smokey dried chillies, and green curry, then desserts like coconut sorbet and a weird one with water chestnuts coated in agar jelly.
If you are vegetarian there is a wider choice of desserts as they make some very nice-sounding things that unfortunately have butter in.
We tried other dishes on other nights and found the standard of the food consistently high. There is an emphasis on using fresh herbs and all the flavours were great. Highlights include their Mussamun curry, the "chicken" with cashews and dried chillis, and penang curry.

The Hotel
The hotel was a very relaxing place to stay in Bangkok and had a great pool, lovely rooms with wooden floors, great furniture and beautiful bathrooms. There are several options for breakfast including a cooked breakfast with mushrooms, tomatoes, veggie sausage and veggie bacon (the sausage is great, the bacon is dry and brittle), cornflakes and muesli with soya milk, toast and toasted muffins with local jams, fruit, or an asian-style breakfast of vegtables with rice.
There is also a spa at the hotel so you can have a massage on site, and a library space for reading where they seemed to also host some religious talks and meditations occasionally but these were not pushed at us. The staff were very friendly and our room was spotless every day.

Pros: Old villa environment, Quality, Flavour

Cons: Not 100% veggie
