Best Restaurant On The Island - Edit

We are delighted to have found this place. It is the only place on Koh Phangan that we have found that has it all: Cleanliness, Authenticity, Traditional Indian Flavours, 100% Vegan Ingredients, Reasonable Prices AND a lovely location with a good vibe.

We love Phangan, and there are great vegan restaurants of all styles all over the island... but you do often have to choose between a clean, comfortable, child - friendly restaurant that costs a fortune to eat at, or an unhygienic or non child - friendly restaurant with cheap prices. Even if you don't have kids, it's still nice to be able to dine comfortably and not spend all of your money.

Aree's is particularly good value for money - 150 THB will get you a huge plate (pretty much a tray) of excellent, delicious, filling and healthy Indian food. 200 THB and it's all you can eat. You may be able to get meals for 70 THB elsewhere on the island, but they probably aren't as filling. On a day where we eat here, we only need to eat 3x as opposed to 4 + snacks so it actually saves us money overall.

The service is friendly and swift. It's a buffet restaurant, so pick up a plate and help yourself. The cooking facilities are clearly visible (open kitchen), and whilst basic, are obviously cleaned regularly and food is always piping hot when it is put out. The whole place is beautifully decorated with Indian furnishings and Vedic artwork. Music is usually upbeat and relaxing Hindu bhajans and Kirtan music.

We highly recommend Aree's Ayurveda Cafe for anybody visiting Koh Phangan - Vegans and Non - Vegans alike.

Great Value, Tasty Food - Edit

1 plate for 150b baht and the plate is basically a tray. Great value. There is an option for 200 baht all you can eat but I can't see anyone needing more than one. Food is not spicy at all but flavourful. Would return.

Wholesome, hearty, goodness ­čśŹ - Edit

Buffet style restaurant. 150 baht for a large plate with no portion limit. 200 baht for all you can eat (though you will.most likely be full after one plate!). Nice selection, I think they change daily. My options were: rice and beans, potato curry, mixed veggies, dal, and salad. They offer desserts too (check the fridge).

Pros: 100% vegan, Delicious, whole, clean food., Very reasonably priced.

G├╝nstiges indisches Essen - Edit

F├╝r 150 Baht bekommt man hier wirklich einen gro├čen Teller leckeres indisches Essen. F├╝r meinen Geschmack war das Essen etwas zu wenig gew├╝rzt, aber auf den Tischen stand eine Art Chutney (?), welches das Essen f├╝r mich extrem aufgewertet hat. Zudem gibt es gratis Wasser. Insgesamt eine gute M├Âglichkeit, g├╝nstig vegan zu essen, besonders dann, wenn man viel Hunger hat.
Ich mochte auch die entspannte und zwanglose Atmosph├Ąre.
├ľffnungszeiten sind offenbar von 7:30 Uhr bis 22 Uhr (Buffet von 10:30 bis 20:30 Uhr). Es wird auch Fr├╝hst├╝ck angeboten und es gibt vegane Desserts.

My favourite restaurant on Koh Phangan - Edit

Aree serves the best Indian food I've had in Thailand! It's all vegan and delicious. Buffet is only 150 a plate or 200 for all you can eat. Great value and amazing food! It tastes like Indian home cooking. Not greasy and heavy restaurant food. I love it!

Pros: Great food, Cheap, Great chill atmosphere

Delicious, Huge Selection, Healthy. - Edit

Everything was vegan, The owner told us the only thing that used to be not vegan was yoghurt, which they now make their own coconut version.
There was a chickpea dish, rice, chapati, a potatoe dish, a veggie dish, salad, and even deep fried veggies. Also large jugs of free water to drink from.
150 baht for 1 plate (they are huge plates so 1 could be enough If you pile it up), or 200 for all you can eat.

great! - Edit

I ate here basically every day I was on KP! Aree is not only a beautiful person, but makes the most beautiful food!
Reasonably cheap for substantial meals.

The salad could do with some work though ­čśŐ

Cozy place and delicious vegan food - Edit

A cozy and nice restaurant. I stay here sometimes even for hours. The buffet is always amazing and very clean with lots of lentils, veggies and naan bread. You should definitely try the Chai tea, the Indian Sweets and put some of the Gomasio (macrobiotic salt) on your food.

Pros: Cheap, clean, vegan

Cons: Not so spicy

not as good as expected - Edit

Unfortunately the buffet wasn't as good as we expected from the other reviews and the pictures... Everything was cold and it was not so tasty because it was cooked without a lot of nice indian spices.
But we've only been there once, maybe it would be better another evening.
But the place is sweet and cozy! And the price (100 baht for one plate, 150 baht for all you can eat) is quite good! You can also eat breakfast there or buy some Sweets.
