Strong on faux meat, a bit weak on veggies - Edit

We've been to Slimbo's 3 or 4 times and have enjoyed it well enough but we don't really feel it's worth going far out of the way to eat there. Why? Two main reasons:

1. While their fauxtein (mock 'meat') dishes are quite well done, we found that they don't seem to have the same finesse with honest vegetable dishes. We haven't been impressed with any of the straight vegetable offerings.

2. It's not very vegan-friendly for those who can't speak a reasonable amount of Thai. The menu doesn't clearly indicate which dishes are vegan, and in our (limited) experience none of the (very kind) staff have spoken English fluently enough to be able to confirm which dishes were definitely vegan, so we took a few leaps and it was usually fine but a couple of times we got something with mayo or cheese.

That said, there are some very sweet people who work there who try very hard to please and they do pull off some quite good fauxtein dishes.

So, in short, we'd say it's certainly worth a try if you're in the neighborhood, but not necessarily worth making a special trip (especially for vegans).

Pros: Good faux meat dishes, Staff try to please

Cons: Not always easy to confirm vegan items, Vegetable (non-fauxtein) dishes subpar

Great Food! - Edit

Just returned from spending a couple of weeks in Thailand; while I was there I visited a great vegetarian restaurant called Slim Bo off Rama 9. The food was really fantastic, especially their meat alternatives... how do they do that? Service was great and the price good considering the quality of the food. The restaurant is part of the SPA Foods group. I wish I could buy their food here!

Pros: Delicious food, Healthy, Friendly service

First visit - Edit

We had dinner with family yesterday. Arrived a bit late (21:00) but not a problem at all. Restaurant had only one other table occupied. Food was swift, as the order in wich it appeared was not the best (spicy food first).

Pros: Quantity, Taste, Parking

Cons: Price
