The name had put me off this restaurant so I avoided it for a while but once I decided to give it a go I was surprised by how much I like the 'concept' and have been back many times. There are set choices, some tasty looking deserts and bits and pieces to choose from but it's the build your own salad that brings me back. That's something I never thought I'd say - salad isn't exciting really is it? You get a base of local leaves, then you choose 5 choices of things to build your salad - things like tomatoes, seeds, olives, peppers, onion, egg. You then get a variety of tasty dressings to choose from. This is for the set, cheap price you can then add on other bits and pieces - meat, cheese, potatoe salad etc for a small amount extra. You order by ticking off the items on your forms and just handing them over so it's easy and straightforward. It really is great to refine something to your tastes or fancies and the veg and other products are all really great quality.
The surroundings are quirky and stylish and the place is popular and has a nice vibe.

Make your own salad? What I want in my salad? The salad concept is a nice place to be, the atmosphere is quite relaxing and gives me enough room to feel comfortable. The food and beverage is refreshing. Able to order what's on the menu as well as making your own. I feel it gives me the choices I want and the price is quite reasonable!

I go to Chiang Mai a lot and this is always my first stop, the freshest salads you'll find anywhere. Eclectic mix of patrons, locals and expats. Staff is young vibrant and friendly Thai who are always willing to help. Niemenheimen is the student area of Chiang Mai, away from the touristy places, real good vibes up and down the street, lots of nice bars off the main road also. Get away from it all, enjoy a healthy delicious meal. Recommend the build your own salad and banana bran shake.

The place is nice, service is quick and salads are delicious even though the selection is not vast. A good option is that you can actually select the ingredients of your salad and decide what dressing to put on. Good to go there once a week if you like greens. BTW...the salad come from hydroponic farms and it is not supposed to be fully organic
