Reasonable, with some tasty dishes

Some of the dishes were good, but others were lacking, especially the tofu skewers. The tofu has very little flavour, despite obvious effort in preparing it, and the accompanying satay sauce was quite plain. The vegan nuggets were also disappointing. The nitri nut skewers were nice, as was the Tom yum fried rice, the stir-fried veg with sweet and sour and the coconut ice-cream.

The service ranged from enthusiastic and friendly to lackluster and disinterested.

We'd hoped for better overall though, based on the recent rave reviews.

Pros: Some of the dishes are nice, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Dish quality/ flavour is varied, Service was inconsistent

Best for a special occasion

We wanted to eat lunch by the River Ping but found most of the restaurants closed. So we looked for a vegetarian place nearby and headed away from the city. I wasn’t expecting much, just the usual noodles and rice with a few vegetables and tofu. But we arrived to discover Shewe in a beautiful old original building, housing a boutique hotel, spa and restaurant. The staff we friendly and greeted us as we parked our bike, guiding us into the restaurant.

Rather than just the usual rice and noodles, the menu contains a vast variety of dishes. Yes, there are the standard options, but we went for Stir Fried Kale and Crispy Vegan Pork, Mushroom Cakes and the Banana Blossom Salad. The pork is made from seitan which we haven’t had in a while so it made a delightful texture change. The mushroom cakes were deep-fried mixed mushrooms with a spicy sauce, always a favourite. The salad was a little spicy but it had a sweetness to it as well. I’d highly recommend all these dishes and a few more if you can fit them in. This is one restaurant that I will definitely be going back to.

Pros: Interesting range of dishes, Friendly staff

good food and service, but…

I really liked the food, service and interior. very chill atmosphere. I only gave 4 stars because
1. of how they present prices:
89 baht for a dish AND 7% tax AND 10% service charge makes it 105 baht. never seen anything like this in thailand before and leaves a weird feeling.
2. my dish should’ve had tempeh but I couldn’t find it.
3. we got an egg even we ordered “vegan” and “no eggs, please” 🫠

Pros: very yummy

Cons: 17% charged on top of list price seems deceiving , a bit pricey

Yummy food

It’s in a hotel, staffs are very friendly and not so many customers so we got food quite fast.

I asked them no egg for banana blossom salad
But they gave egg on a side and saying “I put it aside for you” i was confused and had to say again “I don’t want it” 🤦🏻‍♀️

Go for the atmosphere and decoration

I finally made it to Shewe Vegan. It is attached to accommodation, which might be why it feels so grand when you enter. It is a lovely building with a lot of character and atmosphere. I can imagine it being a great place for a special occasion or with a special friend.

The menu has a wide choice of western and Thai favourites. Although I don't think I found a Red Curry or Phanaeng Curry on the menu. I was happy to see Tempeh is available in some dishes. There is a use of faux meat in some dishes.

My experience was not that great. I went early hoping to avoid any crowds, but there was still a significant wait for the food. They didn't seem interested in adjusting the menu too much to my requirements. When the food arrived I was a bit disappointed with all 3 plates of food. Prices are still reasonable even though the price on the menu doesn't include customary charges.

I would like to go again to try some spicy Thai food. Maybe that would be better. Anyway go for the atmosphere you will like it.

Pros: Beautiful building & decor, Tempeh available, Location & parking

Cons: Significant wait

What a find...

Part of a small boutique hotel, this 4 table restaurant in ambient front living room setting is perfect choice for vegans arriving or departing by rail as its close to the station. Lovely array of classical Thai flavours veganised. Sharp citrusy papaya salad, hearty platter of enoki and King mushrooms with kimchi, homemade coconut ice cream and mouthwatering Tom yam soup.

Pros: Great array of dishes , Friendly service , Nice smoothies

Cons: train meant not enough time to eat everything

Thai goodness

Don't be mislead by the small size of this restaurant. It serves mostly Thai dishes, freshly prepared, flavoursome and with attention to flavour/ texture balance and visual detail. It's an unexpected find in this neighbourhood of Chiang Mai but definitely worth the trip

Pros: All dishes are either vegan or can be veganised, Dishes thoughfully balanced , Very friendly staff

Cons: No alcohol

Really Nice!

I had been meaning to try this place for a while. It is located at a small hotel with a pool (note the hotel may serve non-vegan food.) The restaurant is located out of the back and to the side - follow the signs. The menu is large and has some rare items on it. I had the banana flower salad and fried tempeh, both of which I really enjoyed. Everything is clearly marked vegan and most items are.
The food is a bit pricey compared to your usual Thai place but since this is such a nice setting and slightly upscale I'd say it's well worth it.
I am looking forward to my next visit when I'll try more of their tasty looking options!

Pros: All vegan or at least veg., Tasty, quality food., Has parking.

Cons: Some items contain eggs.

Delivery friendly

Note: I only ordered from this restaurant via delivery service and haven't dine in yet.

There are wide variety of food listed on the delivery provider application and have good categorization. There are some authentic Thai food that cannot be find easily.

Pros: Delivery friendly, Authentic food

One of the very few Vegan Restaurants with a Car Park. You will not be disappointed. The food is freshly prepared and big servings with fresh vegetables. A wide range of choice. You need to visit many times to sample it all. A hotel as well but caters mainly for long-stay. Beers on the menu ( outside the pandemic restrictions).

Pros: A huge menu with choices galore , Thai and Western of top quality and taste, Marvelous presentation in a posh setting

Soooo good!!

Located in a beautiful old building, this restaurant has a bit of everything and all of it is fresh and wonderful! They use all organic produce and you can tell! I had a tom yum soup with noodles which was so fragrant and warming, I also had a stir fried noodle dish which was equally healthy, nourishing and tasty! Staff were very kind and informative!

Pros: Relaxing atmosphere , Welcoming staff
