After several days in Chiang Mai sampling some surprisingly unremarkable vegetarian offerings, finding Brown Rice restaurant was a breath (or perhaps I mean mouthful) of fresh air. Like another reviewer, the minute we tasted his fresh spring rolls, garlic fried mushrooms and crispy tofu salad, we knew we'd be back. On subsequent visits we sampled the (Penang-style) red curry, the yummy Mussaman, the green curry and also stir-fried tofu and vegies. All the flavours were exquisite and the vegetables beautifully cooked.
Service is friendly, but can be quite slow - however, hopefully this is sonething that can be sorted out, as the food is definitely worth the wait.
On two occasions when we visited, there were also local Thais eating at the restaurant - another good sign! The chef also came out to take our order and talk to us - his passion for good food and Vegetarianism is obvious.
Note that this premises will be closing down at the end of September and re-opening in another nearby location (with Health Food Store) shortly afterwards. We wish him the best of luck - as with the launch of the English-language version of his cookbook - his food is too good to miss.
