Bangkok - Chijuya Vegetarian (千寿屋)

After much reviews from the vegetarian society website, I have finally embarked on this trip so that we can go and eat at this place. Much to my surprise, the chefs in this restaurants are all local Thais. Food was beyond my description as this is the first time I felt so happy in a wholly vegetarian Japanese restaurant! Even blogging about it is making me drool already.

This is the front view of the restaurant and the BIG poster below shows the food pictures. *DROOL*

My dad ordered this Donburi where it includes BBQ Prawns and Vegetables in special sauce.

The usual Inari which is normal as you can find it easily in Singapore. I did not really like the colour of the beancurd skin as it was not the usual colour I see.


The Sashimi was quite a disappointment as it was almost tasteless. I guess the best place for vegetarian Sashimi is still Taiwan....Im impressed with the display though.

Yakitori is made with vegetarian soy-based meat and carrots. Tasted very good, and I think Deli-veg might want to opt for this version instead.

The baked potato cheese is well-cooked as the cheese melts in your mouth.

This is the most special kind of sushi as the "skin" is made from Yam instead of your normal seaweed. Having made sushi before, I think this is a very difficult dish as you have to cook, mash the yam into paste before wrapping the ingredients in.


My Cousin ordered this dish and commented that the noodles was good. There are also Abalone slices on the sides.

My favourite was Tempura Prawns as they tasted perfect with the sauce. I do hope Sakae sushi has this someday!

Sunnietart ordered the Miso Udon and is still craving for it today!

Cost wise, we ordered 5 set meals and 9 side dishes which cost a total of 1900BHT.. which is nearly $100 and I think its still worth it!

All in all, the location might be far from the city, but it does not cost more than 100BHT if you go by cab meter. Just that most cabs do not want to on their meters. One of the MUST go restaurant if you do visit Bangkok!

Location: Fifty-Fifth Plaza (Sukhumvit 55), Thong Lor Soi 2, 2nd floor
Bangkok, Thailand
Tel: 02 259 6466
*Only a short 5 min walk from BTS stop in Thong Lor

I didn't know that they have such nice vegetarian food.:-)
I had always thought Thai food as Seafood Tom Yam, Fried Fish, more meaty from local Thai food experience.:P
Haha, I would consider putting Bangkok as my next travel destination. :-)
Cheers:-)

Chijuya is an all time favourite for my family and I too but sadly!!!! They are closed!! My brother went to BKK last weekend and mentioned that it was closed, I saw it on some website but ignored, thinking it is so nice so that must be a wrong message, but confirmed...it is closed...Hope that someone will tell us where it has moved to soon!
