Description: Thai and Issan Vegetarian/Vegan Restaurant & Cooking School in Kanchanaburi, Thailand
Reviewed July 14, 2016

Fantastic, vegetarian/vegan restaurant. The owner cooks outside in front of the small restaurant and everything is cooked to order. Beware if you arrive behind a group of 12 as orders are cooked one by one as they arrive in the kitchen. Fresh, vibrant flavors. Had we discovered this restaurant earlier in our visit, we would have eaten here several more times. You write your order on a pad and the staff reviews it before bringing it to the chef. If you want an adult beverage, pop down the street to the 7 Eleven or the bar next door - BYOB.

We loved On's so much that we ate there everyday, usually twice a day during our week long stay in Kanchanaburi. As vegetarians it can sometimes be hard to find good food. On's is the best Thai food we have ever had, and with the most reasonable prices. Everything is 60 baht plus 10 baht for rice. Awesome smoothies for 30 baht. Even meat eaters go there because it's so good. On is so hard working, she is open everyday and cares for her little son in the restaurant while cooking!! It's a relaxed, family environment. Bonus: On has super fun cooking classes (one on one or you can do it with your partner/friends) that are easily half price of all the classes in Bangkok or chiang Mai. She gives you the recipes, makes it fun and you end up with tons of food. Because there were two of us making 6 dishes (3 each plus dessert) we had enough food for brunch, plus leftovers that she saved in her fridge and then reheated for us for dinner! Wow! We are in northern Thailand now and still wishing we could visit her place again. Go there, you will not be disappointed. You may even end up taking a cooking class so you can show off to your friends when you get home! ;)

On's Thai Isaan is a relief for vegetarian travellers and a great place to eat for anybody who is looking for authentic thai cuisine in this street (there's lots of restaurants around which serve western food). Meals are freshly made, we ate there breakfast, lunch and dinner. You should do as well!

We ate here 2 times. Food was awesome, nothing to complain about. Pad Thai is delicious and we also loved green, massaman and Panang curry are super tasty. Everything is cooked in the moment, you can even see the cook working on the entrance which is very entertaining.
The bad point of the restaurant is the service. Do not misunderstand me, the staff is lovely but they are not organized. Both times, after 10 minutes sitting on the table ready to order, no one came to take the order, we have to ask them and then they gave us a notebook to write it by ourselves, which is ok. Drinks take too long to come, in our case we got them just when we were finishing our meal and in one situation we did not get one of the shakes that we ordered.
We have been traveling around SEA for 4 months so we are very used to the Asian service, and is already when there are delays but it can get quite annoying when it takes 10 minutes for the people to notice that you are ready to order, even when there are just 5 tables occupied. And SEA means spicy food, so drinks are a must and they cannot come when you have just finished your meal.
