Great spot - nice owner

The owner is lovely - she mentioned she was not getting many customers since covid and was out of many ingredients. She even offered to head out to the market quickly to get what was missing. I had the banana pinapple peanut rice (without pineapple) and it was okay! Not really my taste but was still interesting to try. Serving size was huge

Eine kleine Oase

Der Standort bei Google ist falsch.
Das Restaurant ist auf der anderen Seite der großen Straße.
Man muss in eine kleine Seitenstraße, die bei Google nicht eingezeichnet ist.
Der korrekte GPS Code ist:



Obwohl das Restaurant anscheinend lange keine Gäste mehr hatte, wurde uns ein Tisch auf der Terrasse frei geräumt und Essen auf unseren Wunsch zubereitet.
Die Tochter ist sogar noch schnell auf den Markt um Tofu für unser Essen zu kaufen.

Wir hatten:
1x Nudelsuppe
1x gebratener Reis mit Gemüse

Zum Überbrücken der Wartezeit gab es Bananen.

Das Essen war sehr lecker.
Der gebratene Reis hatte ein leckeres Raucharoma.

Wir haben im Gästebuch gestöbert und uns eingetragen.

Vegetarier finden hier ein Restaurant, in dem die Besitzerin weiß was vegetarisch heißt.

Am zweiten Abend waren wir nochmal hier essen.

So I went twice as it was the only place that seemed to be veg friendly in the vicinity, and so glad I did. I was the only person both times and normally I avoid anywhere that doesn't have local people eating, but the portions were more than generous and absolutely tasty. First was pad Thai with tofu, second was probably the most incredible dish of curried rice with banana and pineapple. I felt really special that she spent so long to make them for me! Also got a pineapple shake both times, which she kindly made without milk. Her granddaughter (?) is also the funniest little thing and will take better selfies on your Instagram than you!!

Pros: most delicious curried rice

Cons: none!

Absolutely must-see! Amazing!

This lady seriously knows how to cook! Do not miss out on this place when you are here. You must try the pineapple, banana, cashew rice, it is the winner! We also had the fried mixed vegetables, the pad thai, and a banana shake with coconut milk. This place is simply off the charts. Would love to give it 5 stars if happycow let me. Large vegetarian section on the menu and the lady speaks good English so it was easy to order vegan. She makes one dish at a time, my bf and I shared all the dishes so it worked out perfectly for us, everythime we finished a dish the next one was just ready. This restaurant is on the road directly across from the bank (road doesn't show up on google maps but just head to the pinpoint).

Pros: Incredible tasting food, lots of vegan options, am

Cons: None

delicious fresh made food from a lovely lady...

We had been there for lunch.
The vegan or vegetarian dishes are not marked as those in the menu, but the owner speaks little english and is very helpful. She cooks the dishes all fresh like you want it. The fried rice with banana and pineapple is our favourite, but also the springrolls are very good.

Pros: lovely owner, nice atmosphere, delicious, fresh food

A gem of a place in a dive of a town!

Souphailins might be hard to find, I stumbled across it by chance and am glad I did.
EASILY the best veggie food in Udomxai.
In fact the only place I could find that had explicitly veggie food here.

It's not just that they have veggie dishes here, it's that they are interesting regional things too you don't come across often.
The fruit shakes were also awesome.

It's run by a solitary old lady who really likes her cooking, she also helps you pronounce the names correctly for fun.

Pros: Great range, Lovely owner

Cons: Hard to find
