Ariya is a wonderful place run by friendly and gentle Buddhists devoted to good health and good taste.

First off, if you have even the slightest affection for avocado, don't miss Ariya's delectable avocado soup. Its nuanced flavor surprises and delights.

As with most raw food restaurants (in this case, a little over half raw with a few cooked options too), you'll pay more to fill up here, but in most cases the prices are fair considering the quality and they fact that they apparently use mostly organic ingredients. An exception is the juices, which at around B180 are overpriced beyond reason. You might find the health drinks and smoothies to offer a more compelling value proposition than the single-ingredient juices. The Green Smoothie was tasty and well balanced.

The set meals offer the best deals, especially Set B, which gives you a soup, main course, and a drink for B299. Note that Ariya also offers a card that they'll stamp until you get something free after a certain expenditure.

We also liked the 'crab' sushi and loved the pumpkin cake (a delicious raw pumpkin pie, which was kept frozen, so order it with your meal to give it time to thaw sufficiently).

For a take-away snack, check out the flax crackers and sunflower snacks, which are rich and crunchy.

They were originally in MBK, but their new location is in a swish, glass-walled mall devoted ostensibly to wellness (but really mostly cosmetic and body-image establishments). It's very convenient to the Lumphini MRT station: just go up the escalators and it's right there on your left (which makes it an easy trip from Sukhumvit too).

We prefer vegan food but rarely try raw because of some poor experienced. This was not one of them. The food is fresh, with a good variety. The place is in a modern mall, upstairs. It can be difficult to find the first time. The place is near Lumphini park so it is nice to pair it with a before or after visit to the park.

The juices are phenomenal. The raw pizza is probably the best dish we tried and we tried a lot of them. We were really hungry and ordered five dishes for the two of us.

The service is attentive without being pushy.

For the health conscious, this is a must eat location when visiting Bangkok.

and I am not a raw foodie, not even a total vegan. This place is close to Lumpini MRT station , 2nd Floor Life Center, Q-House Building Lumphini, Sathorn Road, is open for lunch and dinner (till 20.00) every day, has about 20 seats. I was there as part of the Raw Food/Vegan/Vegetarian Meetup Group, and every one ordered another dish, and all where very happy.
The service was VERY friendly, fluent in English (aswel the owner as the manager)

I've been to Ariya several times over the past two years and the food has always been good. The menu is extremely limited and yes you have to shell out a lot of money to feel full. They have always been extremely friendly and consistent every time that I've been there but the last time I found that I was completely neglected and although I wanted to order more food, no one was around to take my order. I left unsatiated and frustrated. That was a one time thing. I do look forward to returning to the restaurant upon my return to Bangkok.

This is a small place in the Life Center building that consists primarily of health and wellness related clinics and shops. The Cafe is affiliated with the Ariya Wellness Center on the floor above that caters primarily to spinal and bone related treatments.

Ariya Cafe is not for everyone. You have to appreciate organic, raw cuisine from a very limited menu at realtively high prices, to enjoy this place. I had avocado soup and the angel salad. They were both out of the world, bursting with flavor and freshness. Some of the ingredients in the salad were new for me, but they all came together wonderfully well.

The Rasayana Cafe may be a notch above to Ariya, but do try Ariya if this is up your alley.
