Tasty, vegan options

I really like how the food can be altered to be made vegan and gluten-free!

The food isn’t the most amazing, but it’s decent and affordable.

Pros: Vegan options, Gluten-free options

Cons: Can get pretty crowded

Misleading menu

A few items are marked vegan, and are. But more items are marked Vegetarian but contain fish sauce. When I complained about that, the person taking my order said 'people have different definitions of vegetarian.'

Cons: Their menu lists foods with fish sauce as 'vegetar

Great Downtown Thai

Great Thai food with nice flavor. First of what will be many visits. Had a creative vegan appetizer from the Happy Hour menu (they were chive filled round discs cut into fourths with a sweet chili type dipping sauce). Ordered two other mains that were great and big enough to take a little home. Also had a vegan Thai iced tea which was excellent. Will remember to request brown rice going forward as we forgot to specify when we ordered and the default was white.

Pros: Creative specials with at least one vegan option, Nice open restaurant with a few tables outside, Well informed staff able to help veganize orders

Very good but limited

so I no longer really like this place. Dont buy their side of fried tofuy and rice. Its over priced, the tofu is dry and their rice is smushy. Their service sucks!

Very good place
I always get the pad se eww with tofu. Amazing food. Its 10 bucks.
Not a ton of vegan options but they are clearly labeled on menu

Tasty, well-marked vegan options

Thai Canteen has outdoor and indoor seating and is very popular among Davisites. They serve Thai noodle and rice dishes with tofu as the option for a protein, and salads. The menu on the chalk board is not marked, but the printed menu and on line menu is color coded with dots for the options that can be prepared vegan. You need to ask for them vegan. If you do not like food deep fried in shared fryers, ask for the tofu to be regular, not fried. We had the Pad Priew Wan and Pad Kee Mao and they were very flavorful and delicious. There are 3 types of rice (brown, sticky, white). They have a full bar. We saw a group of college kids playing cards at the back of the room and enjoying hanging out.

Pros: Great flavor, Fast service, Outdoor seating option

Cons: Wish there were a few more options
