No messing around, no gimmicks, no inflated prices just straight up good food made by good people. You all should punch back a noodle soup with tofu and a vegetarian laap side salad. NOW!

Me and my husband are real lovers of local food while we're travelling. In Thailand we live for 10 month already and we love their food. Because we're vegan sometimes very hard to find something to eat. And very often Thai don't speak English. But in this restaurant close to the famous Khaosan road are very good Thai food for...

Popped in for a quick lunch, and ordered a simple stir fried chicken and rice dish, after ordering I nipped for a wee, by the time I was back it was on my table! The portions are quite small, but for 60 baht I didn't expect anymore!

The eating options in this part of the city are overwhelming. What Number One lacks in originality for a name,they more than make-up for in quality and value. Is it funky? Oh yes. great local color and ambiance. Clearly a favorite for hungover expats. Strictly veggie? - no, but many options. This was our first meal out in Bangkok and... More

This small unassuming place on a quiet street near Khao San is really a hidden gem! True, the menu is not all veg like the name suggests but the vegetarian selection is wide and varied. We came back here everyday because the food was simply delicious and the prices are unbelievable (30-50 baht). We especially liked the thick spicy curry... More

This restaurant is easy to spot with a big sign saying "Number One Vegetarian and Thai Food". Take note of the "and thai food" part because that is their tricky way of saying they are not a purely vegetarian restaurant. However, they have a TON of vegetarian dishes. The menu is huge (like over 10 pages). The first half is... More

This restaurant offers a quiet retreat from the Kao San Road, it is on the Tanao Rd. Very easy to find. Tanao is known for the numerous silver jewalry stores. Just look for the sign that reads Number One Vegetarian. It is open 24 hours a day. I noticed it was quite busy during lunch hours. I'd intentionally go there... More

Number One is a restaurant located behind Aporia Books on Tanao Road - (road that runs at 'T' junction with Kao San Road - opposite end to the road with the stop for airport bus).

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood Profile
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
