There are several vegetarian restaurants in the Chinatown of Bangkok, which is also called Yaowarat. Especially in the small Indiatown area, Phahurat, there are many vegetarian restaurants around just a few blocks.
Suki Yeh Ru Yi near Hualamphong railway station
If you cross the road in front of the Bangkok main railway station, Hualamphong, you can find my favourite restaurant in that area. It is also located very practically if you visit the station when you buy tickets, leave Bangkok or arrive from a trip.
Suki Yew Ru Yi is a jay restaurant but it has a menu and no ready made foods. There are many salads with mock meat and tofu, mock meat plates, curries, noodle soups and fried foods.
Lee Jae in the middle of Chinatown
There is jay-vegetarian food stall on an alley next to the big Charoen Krung road. There is no sign saying “Lee Jae” or “vegetarian” but you can spot the place because of the yellow and red jay-flags.
The service is not very friendful and the food is not very tasty because it lacks spices. But the restaurant is located practically almost on the busy shopping street.
A Japanese Vegetarian restaurant by Chao Phraya river
There is a Japanese Vegetarian restaurant on an alley between Song Wat road and Chao Phraya river. It used to be located in a shopping centre in the Japanese quarters of Bangkok, but now it is in the south west of Chinatown.
A Japanese vegetarian restaurant is a lovely idea but unfortunately the foods I tried here were not what I had wished. I guess the mock raw fish there is made of konnyaku which is tasteless. And when I ordered mock shrimps I did not expect them to be covered with mayonese. I don´t think the mayo is vegan.
Vegetarian stalls in India Emporium
There is one Thai and one South Indian vegetarian stall in the “Food Garden” of the India Emporium shopping center. It is useful to find the building in Chakraphet Road, because there are also two Indian Pure Vegetarian restaurants in the alleys in front of the shopping center, two Thai jay-vegetarian stalls behing and one Indian next to it. Chakraphet Road is an Indian part of Bangkok´s Chinatown and you can really see it in the street.
Thai Vegetarian jay-stalls behing India Emporium
You can find to vegetarian stalls serving typical thai vegetarian jay-foods behind the shopping center and next to a sikh temple. The food is cheap and good for that price.
