Respond to Review of The Sanctuary
Review: I stayed at the Sanctuary for a day, and ate regularly at the restaurant. Despite the fact that they advertise themselves as a "Vegetarian and seafood restaurant", I had mixed experiences in getting vegan food. Some breakfast and desert options are marked vegan on the menu. I had a nice mixed grain porridge just before leaving, for example. Main courses, though, are not marked. One senior member of staff was very understanding and helpful - she stood with the chef during cooking to make sure no mistakes were made. At the other end of the scale, another staff member abruptly ended a conversation by saying that they could not help me and maybe I should have a salad. On another positive note, I left my laptop sleeve and the staff very kindly posted it on. When they are helpful, they are very helpful. The food, once I got it, was good. I had a curry and some snacks. The juices were fantastic. But I was in an expensive (for Thailand) holistic detox resort which advertised a vegetarian restaurant, and had not expected it to sometimes require, say, the patience of an omnivorous restaurant.
