541 Paholyothin Road, Meung, Chiang Rai, Thailand, 57000

Serves meat, vegan options available. Bar/coffee bar/restaurant in the centre of Chiang Rai, 100 meters north of the night bazaar entrance, on the left. Menu is small and largely Thai with some western breakfasts and snacks on offer, such as filled baguetes and sandwiches. Vegetarian and vegan dishes are listed in a separate section of the menu and are prepared on a separate surface. Most of the dishes in the other section are available vegan with tofu and/or soya protein(TVP). All meals are prepared and cooked to order by the owners, one of whom is vegan. Relaxing atmosphere, with subtle decoration, atmospheric lighting and laid-back jazz and blues music playing. Has a full bar. Free Wi-Fi with plenty of recharging points available, also free of charge. Reported closed to HappyCow, Nov 2014.

Excellent Thai vegetarian dishes - Edit

A new vegetarian option in Chiang Rai. We are regular visitors to the city and this new option is a much welcomed addition. The dishes are prepared and served with care.The taste is excellent and definitely Thai! There is good range to choose from and you can choose between TVP or tofu. The ambience is welcoming and there is a wide range of drink options. Easy to find location. Exit from the main entrance to the night bazaar and turn right. About 50 Metre on the left side of the street. Well worth the very short walk!

Pros: Excellent value, Excellent Thai home cooking

Trip was 2nd rate until I found the Lounge - Edit

I was having a bad trip until I found the Lounge. The atmosphere here was excellent, The food was to die for and the prices were not rip off like most tourist bars and clubs. The staff were very friendly even when it got busy and they were under presure. If you dont visit this place when in Chiang Rai the your missing out.I recommend this place to everyone who will be in the area.

Pros: 1st Rate food, Very friendly staff, Very good prices

Cons: I had to leave

Our saviours - Edit

We stumbled upon The Lounge in passing, walking around Chiang Rai practically starving due to the high cost of vegan food everywhere else listed. The menu listed simple veg stir fry and curry, which we were delighted with. The owner and cook were very friendly and accommodating to us being vegan, and even told us where we could buy some cheap groceries.

We ended up returning there a few nights in a row. The cook even went to the extent of cooking us food that wasn't on the menu and gave us a little bit extra. Her Massaman tofu curry was the best we've tasted in Thailand, and at 90B it was also one of the cheapest and filling. She made a sweet and sour dish as well with rice, tons of veg, and tofu that was the best meal I've had since I started traveling.

All in all, not only are they friendly and accommodating, they play great music and have a great atmosphere, is by far the cleanest restaurant I've been in, and has some of the best food around for veggies and probably meat eaters alike.

Pros: great food and service, good booze list, cheapest in town
