This place is fantastic! - Edit

I eat here often because I live nearby, but even if I wasn't so close I would definitely make the trip. It appears to be a family-owned operation.

FYI: Google Maps can find "The Rice and Healthy Food," and the physical location has the sign in English, but Google has the name completely in Thai. It's easy to find, just opposite across the street from Tesco Lotus in a converted gas station area right on the canal. You'll probably see the "vegetarian food" sign or some variation of the Thai character from the sidewalk.
It's about a 10 minute, 50 baht taxi ride from Khaosan Road if that's where you're staying.

Most things are made to order, so the food will always be hot (none of those trays of stuff cooked ten hours earlier like other places). The food comes quickly, and the quality is much higher than the low prices. Certain dishes are arranged in a visually-appealing way (I am uploading many photos I took).
The dishes are all mainly the same price (40-60 baht), but the portions are enough that, depending on what you order, two might be more than enough for one person. If you go with others, they give extra plates.

The food definitely has less sodium. Less chili and oil, too. I feel "light" after eating here, not bogged down or salty or gross. This is the main reason why I return often!

Their menu has photos of every dish, and there is Thai and English under all pictures. While dishes have eggs, but you can get everything with or without eggs. You have the choice between white or brown rice with some dishes, and some dishes you can choose type of thing (noodles, etc). You can get everything ordered just by pointing at the spot on the menu. If you do need help with something in English there's not always someone can speak English.

That being said, the staff are very sweet people. It's a Buddhist place and everyone has a big smile and greets you warmly. The old lady behind the counter is very patient. The servers, even when busy, are jovial and follow all formalities. There is a tip box which says the tip will be donated to charity. I feel very welcome every time I come.

The restaurant itself is very clean. It stands out in this for me, compared to other Thai places I have eaten at in BKK at this price range.

They also have juice, smoothies, and iced teas. All I've tried were great.

There is a small vegetarian foods and healthy products shopping area inside. You can get a lot of snacks and other things at a decent price.

Nice food and atmosphere - Edit

Most of the dishes contain meat substitutes which are perfect for any new vegetarians/vegans still adjusting to cutting meat from their diet. Dishes are very cheap (mostly 40-60B) and atmosphere is very peaceful.

Pros: Friendly staff , Inexpensive, Good food

Cons: Slightly hidden from the road
