Veg Restaurant - Maenamkwai Rd

  • Vegan Vegan
    ( 7 reviews )

Maenamkwai Rd, next to CJ Supermarket, Kanchanaburi, Thailand

Previously a food cart, now a small restaurant that serves vegan Thai food. Everything is written in Thai but you can see the Thai word for vegan - it looks like GI but mirrored. Serves vegan laap with mushrooms and soy protein as substitutes. Comes with sticky rice. Take away possible, although you'll get the laap and rice separately in plastic bags (no foam). Menu may change throughout the year. Does not speak English but is helpful and smiles a lot. Open Mon-Fri 9:00am-6:00pm.

Nice food nice owner - Edit

There are some nice options, but a bit limited. Have a feeling that there might be a few other options if you can communicate what you want in Thai. Everything is 40 baht.

Communication not great, but it is a genuine vegetarian business, rather than a tourist orientated vegetarian place charging twice as much. Hope she sticks around and continues to do well for years to come.

Makes me smile - Edit

Both food and the lady with her beautiful laugh makes me smile. The spicy mushroom salad (larb) is awesome. She can cook really spicy if you like :-)

Delicious Thai food - Edit

I came here for lunch today, there were no other customers but it is quite hidden so I'm not surprised. She offered free water and ice cubes. Luckily she had an English menu so ordering was easily. I had the Spicy Cumcumber salad, which was indeed very spicy, probably the most spicy thing I've ever eaten. I guess this is more accomodated for Thai people, but despite the spicyness it was still very delicious!

Pros: Cheap, Exellent food, Friendly cook

Best vegan restaurant in Kanchanaburi - Edit

This is no longer a food cart, but a nice little restaurant down the alley next to CJ's supermarket on the left hand side. Absolutely the best vegan food I had in a long time. Very friendly lady serving a variety of delicious isaan dishes. Very clean and also very cheap. No msg! Don't miss it! I recommend: Numtok, Somtum, Laap Hed Woonsen and many more. She will prepare whatever you wish at your taste.

MMaree 02 May 2016 - Might be that she was at a market somewhere. Or she has specific days where she can be found there. I am not in Thailand anymore so hopefully other travellers can check this :) Hope you had other tasty vegan food in Kanchanaburi!

Lovely lady, tasty food - Edit

The lovely lady behind her cart showed me all of her food but unfortunately I was already too full from the vegan place across the street. I went back the next day and apparently she sold vegan 'laap' (everything was written in Thai). I ordered one to take with me to the Erawan falls. It was a very nice lunch, even two bag-hours later!

If you like laap and it's herby flavour (mint and cilantro) you should go to this lovely and smiling young lady. Don't know if she also offers other food and if her menu changes over time. Around April she was in front of the CJ.

Possible cons; owner doesn't understand English and she offers limited choice. But this could also be seen as 'local' and 'specialism' as well ;)

Take care everyone!

Pros: Nice owner, Tasty food, Cheap - 40baht
