There are now two Pun Pun restaurants in Chiang Mai city! The restaurant at Wat Suan Dok temple is still open in the same beautiful location. The restaurant at Wat Suan Dok has expanded to open a second location farther up Suthep Road to the West by the University and the base of the mountain. This restaurant can be open in the evening and also has a small cooking school for people to learn how to cook some of the dishes on the menu. Both places use local organic produce as much as possible.
Pun Pun Restaurant at Wat Suan Dok is open from 9:00am-4:00pm
Pun Pun at Lang Moh is open from 10 am-8:00pm
Our great friends Oh and Eaung have taken over full management of what used to be called Pun Pun @ Santitham but is now called Imm Aim Vegetarian Restaurant. The menu also incorporates local and healthy organic food and is different in that is incorporates fusion recipes and the space also hosts a shop for organic products from local villagers and craftspeople.
Imm Aim Vegetarian Restaurant is open from 10am -9:00 pm (kitchen closes at 8:00pm)
Come and try them all!
At Pun Pun seed saving is our main objective. We realized that we save seeds, propagate them, and promote other people to grow them, but other people grow them and don’t have anywhere to sell them as they are not known to the general public anymore and middlemen do not buy them like they do cash crops. We realized there is a need to create a market for local indigenous organic vegetables. So we opened a restaurant called Pun Pun to be a place to bring the vegetables that we and other local farmers grow and to be a place for education for the public as well.
what it is
Pun Pun Organic Restaurants are a project aimed at supporting local organic farmers, farmer networks, and propagating biodiversity. By producing organic produce on our own farm as well as buying from farmers producing organically, we support farmer’s transition to sustainable food systems.
where it is
Pun Pun Restaurant at Wat Suan Dok temple (on Suthep Road between the Suan Dok Gate on the moat and the Chiang Mai University- if you are new to the city you can just tell the driver of the red trucks to take you to Wat Suan Dok, it is very well known) is located inside the temple. Walk back into the temple on the main road to the back and on your right you’ll see a Monk Chat building. Keep walking and on your right you’ll see a sign for the restaurant and the courtyard inside.
Pun Pun Lang Moh is located farther west down the road from Wat Suan Dok temple. Keep traveling west on Suthep Road through the large intersection at the canal and just past the entrance to CMU on your right, you will see it on your left at the base of the mountain.
Pun Pun @ Santitham is located just down the street from YMCA on Santitham Road. It is on the street between the YMCA and the round-about.
