Located on the quiet side street of Ratmakka Road, just off the inner Moat Road (Moon Muang), Taste From Heaven Vegetarian Restaurant is only a short five minute walk from ThaPae Gate. This restaurant used to be located on the other side of the moat but closed about a year ago in order to revamp their menu and change locations. We had waited with baited breath for this vegetarian locale to reopen as it had been one of our favorite restaurants in town. We were eager to see how the new Taste From Heaven compared to the old one.
This intimate-sized restaurant has a modern flare to it with upscale decor, yet is down to earth and comfortable with soft, colorful cushions on picnic style benches. Typical Thai additions, such as beautiful flowers and smiling servers, make Taste From Heaven inviting.
The menu consists of a variety of popular Thai dishes, including curries, soups and salads, and a few Western favorites like burgers and pasta dishes.
Taste From Heaven has conveniently displayed a (v) next to all the dishes that are vegan on their menu and we are happy to say that there were many options for us. We were also happy to learn that the staff would gladly make some of our old favorites, such as mushroom larb salad and choo chee, that did not make the new menu.
Having noticed an error on the menu where a dish (the samosas) were marked with a (v) and yet butter was included in the description, we recommend reading each description carefully and not solely relying on the (v).
Prices and Service
The prices were comparable to those in the neighborhood and reflected the quality of both the ingredients and the skill of the chef. The waitresses were very friendly, spoke fluent English and were happy to help us make a decision.
All in all, we highly enjoyed both the food and dining experience at Taste From Heaven Vegetarian Restaurant and because we feel it has maintained all the aspects of the old restaurant that we enjoyed (most importantly the delicious-tasting food), we highly recommend eating a meal here.
