We are a new cafe in Bangkok creating employment for young people from the Klong Toey Slum. We are passionate about seeing young people have opportunity to relate to people and life outside the slum. Our vision is that the cafe creates a safe environment for young people to work, gain experience and confidence with every cup of coffee we serve. Through journeying with our staff we hope the cafe will be a stepping stone to future employment and broadening their horizons.

Been here for both of my trips to Thailand, and have loved supporting them! So great to talk with enthusiastic and hospitable people, beautiful air con, so I could enjoy a nice big, proper coffee. Everybody enjoyed their food and drinks, and the atmosphere makes it. So bright, so much art, craft and photos. Definitely worth a visit to support... More

We regularly take our office staff from Bangkok to Munjai cafe for lunches and special occasions. The Thai food is great as is the eclectic mix of western favorites based on recipes from local expats. Great to be able to support the Munjai team who are all young Thai people from the Klong Toey community. Don't miss the music nights.

I like the idea of giving opportunity to young people from Klongtoey's 70 Rai community to be trained and work in service industry. They are very nice and do try to speak English though forgetful sometimes. The food and drinks are of standard quality, not outstanding but not bad. Drinks tend to be quite sweet but you can let the... More

The coffee here was so good. I love the way they decorate the place. It might not be super fancy as you expected but it filled with love and good intention. Be here, have some coffee, and be supportive!!

this cafe is very hidden, and I just came across it on a geocache walk with my daughter. we entered for a place with aircon and a cold drink, but found a GEM! They have very good food, and fantastic milkshakes, but that was not the surprise. the super nice playroom for kids was the best find in a long... More

Enjoyed two separate visits to Munjai cafe during a recent family holiday to Bangkok. We thoroughly enjoyed both visits and highly recommend a visit to anyone wanting some good food and an opportunity to support a great cause.

Everybody should visit Munjai Café. Me and my friends visited several times during February and March 2014 and we love the place. Going there we could get to know the staff and hear the amazing story of how Munjai started! If you want a nice meal/snack you should visit and also know that your money goes to a good cause,...

This restaurant offers Australian, Thai and European cuisine. These people have taken the concept of culinary to the next level. The food theatre is at its best. It is also quite e6xpensive, however it is worth it. The meals, service and ambience deserves a 10 star rating. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. It is truly an experience that should...
