Description: Brown Rice has just opened in the restaurant at 85/5 Samlann road Tumbol Phra singha in Chiang Mai. It is an all vegetarian restaurant, specialising in thai food, but also serves several western dishes. It is run by the fantastic Duang, a thai 'masterchef' who has written many cookery books and has appeared on thai tv cooking channels.Business hour.11.00 a.m.-21.00p.m. Close on Wednesday. All our food is freshly prepared and cooked with love. Our dishes are special and from the heart so sometimes they might take a little while. Please be patient and we will serve you as quickly as we can.

I cannot possibly rate this restaurant high enough. It's one of the very few vegetarian refugiums in town and really good at that! I had the fresh spring rolls which were lovely but the true reason to go there is for the soy steak with pepper sauce, cheese and grilled vegetables!!! Finally something other than fried rice and noodles and so very, very well done!
Service was friendly and fast and the music was really lovely too!

Diimaag, arroy maag, muy bueno, tres bien, delicioso--however you want to say it, it's great. The flavors are amazing and seem to explode in your mouth. We've promised to go back again and again until we've had everything on the menu--and this is from a confirmed meat eater!

Brown Rice has improved their serving times without sacrificing food quality. They've also added a coffee bar, a nice trellis to block the sun and make the entire dining area shaded, and switched out all the hard stools for comfortable chairs with seat cushions and backs. All the dishes are great. We especially enjoyed the banana blossom salad, tom kha soup, khao soi, mushroom curry, and lemongrass chili drinks.

Just travelled through Vietnam, Cambodia and Northern Thailand. The food at Brown Rice is without doubt the best food I have had. I rarely eat in the same place twice as I like to try different places; however, this is my 3rd meal here. It's just so good.

Certainly agree with earlier reviewer as the Thai herb salad is delicious. Also excellent Mango smoothies.

Thank you Mr Duang and keep up the good work.

the food is amazing and if you compare the prices with other places it's pretty good. hte staff is really friendly. I got some cooking classe with the chef and it was a great experience, he's really open about giving you all the info and details and you have fun at this kitchen. If he has to make some other dish for a client you didn't choose to learn, he will show you and give you the recipe anyways.
the only things is that sometimes it takes them a while to serve so be a little patient you'll be rewarded by the food...
and try the banana blossom salad!
