“The best meal I had in Thailand.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

I went to Ethos by accident as I was looking for another restaurant.

I love the earthy vibe from Ethos and despite not having air conditioning it was quite pleasant and cool inside. The staff were friendly and there is free wifi if you need it. The menu is extensive and apart from the place being a little hard to find (a backstreet parallel with a main road) it was awesome!

My partner and I ordered and shares the glass noodle salad and the tempeh salad with peanut sauce. Both were amazing.

Their juices were great and I had the coconut chocolate shake it was like a coconut rough in a glass :)

I highly recommend the apple crumble it was AMAZING!

I will be going back.

Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

tried the Lasagna, lemonade and Indian chai. all were very good. the setting is nice, in a quiet road being Khao San road. service was ok, and there is also wifi. For vegetarians this place definitely deserves 5 stars.

“Good food, but where's the ethos in styrofoam?”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

I love this place and would recommend. The food is incredible. The shakes are decent although the coconut ones are just straight up coconut milk with one other thing.
Staff are decent.
I got take out last night and got 4 styrofoam containers. What?! Where's the ethos in that? You cant say you represent integrity and environmental ethics, and then hand out styrofoam and plastic utensils. Seriously. There's paper. Cardboard. Biodegradable / compost able ANYTHING.

“Bangkok's Best”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Whenever I need to go to Bangkok, the redeeming factor is that I get to visit this restaurant. Everything on their menu is divine and there is an amazing variety including Thai and Western. Superb vegan desserts! I really like how they clearly show which dishes are vegetarian and which are vegan or can be made vegan. The translation on the menu of how to order your vegetarian or vegan menu and say I don't eat meat in Thai is a lovely finishing touch. There is an excellent ambiance for you to enjoy your meal and the prices are also good. A visit to Bangkok, without a visit to this restaurant, would just be WRONG!

“Nice fresh food. Large menu”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We ate here for breakfast and ordered one plain omelette and a mushroom omelette, both also came with 2 slices of thick homemade whole meal toast. The serving size was large and could easily be shared if on a budget. We also got one mint and lemon ice tea (very refreshing) & one iced chocolate, all very tasty. Altogether 300baht, so not super cheap, but quality food. The People next to us had fresh fruit and yoghurt which looked huge and delicious. They have a very large range of drinks - ice teas, fruit shakes, soy, various flavours. We will return here again for breakfast to try the 'famous musli'. Nice atmosphere, and free wifi if you eat there. Staff friendly and attentive.
