Conscious Vibrant Soul food - Edit

This place is one of a kind.
The food here is healthy, hearty and delicious.
It is well-prepared, fresh and soulful using flavours from both Greece and India.
The owners are a beautiful greek couple with a love for what they do. They are consciuos about how they prepare their food and the quality of the produce is often organic or pesticides free (which is rare on Koh Phangan).
I ordered "something raw", and they spoiled me with an organic vegan salad with greek olive oil, pumpkin seeds, avocado and fresh greens. Their lentil soup is also amazing (not raw).
Their menu changes more or less every day - go and ask, and prepare yourself to be served real, vibrant food made with love, good energy, a conscious mind and amazing taste!
GO - I'll be there! ;-)

Superb - Edit

I stumbled upon this gem and was totalled taken in by the family atmosphere of truth and integrity. Not lots of signage, but was to find out a steady stream of repeat customers. My grilled mushroom sandwich was vegan and excellent quality. I promise you’ll have a perfect experience, just put phones away, slow down, and get to know owners... beautiful..

Pros: Clean, Atmosphere , Best of food quality

Delicious healthy food - Edit

Akhasa Home is located on the right hand side of the main road as you travel north out of Srithanu. Seating is in a covered outdoor area which is comfortable and absolutely spotless. However, the proximity to the main road means there is some noise.

It is a family run business with three people working on the occasions I was there. The restaurant is very popular and was almost full every time I visited. Given its popularity, lack of staff and the fact all food is cooked from scratch, service was a little slow.

Despite being very busy, the staff are incredibly welcoming and friendly. They insisted on wiping down the table, before I sat down, every time I visited which was a very nice touch.

Although not a vegan restaurant, they are happy to customise all dishes to vegan on request.

I visited three times during my time on Kho Phangan for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

My breakfast recommendation is “Coconut milk porrighe with Banana” (sic) (120 THB / £2.40), “Twoslices brown Rye bread w/tahini,row taco, honey with row nuts and chia seeds” (sic) (80 THB / £1.60), or the “Dried and fresh fruits salad” (90 THB / £1.80). The “Arabic organic coffee” (50 THB / £1) was the best coffee I had on Kho Phangan.

My recommendation for lunch or dinner is the “Macrobiotic set with lentil soup”. It is available in large (240 THB / £4.80) and small (180 THB / £3.60) sizes. I have a good appetite and found the large size quite filling.

I tried various deserts including the “Super choco-nuts ball” (60 THB / £1.20), “Chocolate mousse” (60 THB / £1.20) and “Banana cake” (60 THB / £1.20). All were delicious but I particularly enjoyed the banana cake.

The “Goji berry,wheat grass,strawberry” (sic) (90 THB / £1.80) juice was very watery and not particularly enjoyable.

Akhasa Home is one of my favourite restaurants on Kho Phangan and I thoroughly recommend it.

Pros: Delicious, Healthy, Big Portions

Cons: Slow Service, Watery Juices, Short Staffed

Healthy delicious food - Edit

It's a great place with a lovely atmosphere. The food is tasty and healthy and the owners are really nice people. If you are vegan, be careful when you order a breakfast, because you might get served a yoghurt - happened to us anyway - but the rest of the menu is all vegan. If you are in Sri Thanu(the vegan capital of Thailand) you should definetely visit this place.

If You Like Macrobiotic Food, You Will Enjoy - Edit

I am not a huge fan of macrobiotic food, as I often find it to be bland for my taste. I did, however, enjoy my macrobiotic veggie bowl here. If you are looking for exciting, spicy flavors, this is not your place. If you are looking for wholesome and health vegan food, this is a perfect spot.

Pros: Healthy food

Wonderful place - food with love - Edit

When I heard that the macrobiotic place was replaced with an all vegan cafe I was excited to try this. It's run by a Greek couple who put tremendous love into what they do.
Their main option is a set meal (brown rice with small sides) which is an amazing mix of very different flavors. The half size set is large enough for one, especially if you get the soup with it. I loved their seaweed soup, very hearty in itself.
They offer medicinal teas, smoothies, and also have a shop selling all kinds of vegan products/staples and superfoods. Their desserts are out of this world and everything offered seemed healthy and balanced.
I wish they'd drop yogurt as an option so this could be listed as vegan on HappyCow.

Pros: beautiful people, amazing food, healthy
