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.

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I ate here many times during my stay in Chiang Mai. The food was delicious but the real winner was the Mixed Fruit Shake! It's an absolute must try!

“Excellent plane with master chef Duang”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I don't usually do food reviews, but this place deserves one. The food was fresh and innovative. A tasty fusion of tastes and very fresh ingredients. Would go again.

“Superb Veggie Delights”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

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!

“So good you can't believe it' vegitarian!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

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!

“A new review to upgrade BR's rating.”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

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.
