First Review by AkashaBertozzi

good prices - Edit

We went twice because we are on a budget. The fresh carrot and beer juice was devine. Nice home made garlic bread and yummy hummus. The vegan burger and pad Thai were meh. Hard noodles, bland taste all round. Go for the green thai curry. We were grateful for the large selection of vegan meals on the menu and cheap prices.

Pros: price, fresh juices, many protein options

Cons: hit and miss taste

Great food - Edit

We did not read reviews on this restaurant before going there and had a much different experience than the previews reviews. We had ginger stir fried vegetables as well as the quinoa with vegetables and avacado sauce. We really enjoyed them. We also had the steamed spring rolls as and they were just okay. The prices were very good compared to other restaurants in the area and we would definitely recommend.

Pros: Price, Food, Good shakes

Bad food, don't go - Edit

We ordered stir fried garlic and pepper tofu, but the tofu wasn't fried and the sauce tasted like dishwater with lots of pepper. Really bad. The bread we had as a side was fine.

Worst place in thailand by far - Edit

The menu was big with a lot of vegan options in it. Everything vegetarian and vegan clearly labeled.
My friend ordered a Veggie burger (80THB + 20THB if you want fries) It was really dry and didn't taste good. There was no sauce in it only veggies , old salad leaves, wholewheat bread and deep-fried patty.
Papaya salad was ok.
I ordered Quinoa with vegetables and avocado sauce (150THB) , it was really bad. It consisted of a handful of blackened salad leaves,one huge chunk of raw carrot and a few vegetables, a spoonful of quinoa, that was mixed with so much lemon juice it was inedible.... and a few small pieces of avocado. Very disappointing.
After that i took the Thai vegetable curry (100THB + rice (30THB) the portion was big but it was pretty much only liquid, there was a few vegetables floating in it, the taste was bland.
I dont recommend this place to anyone.

alright but overrated - Edit

While there are a decent amount of vegan options, prices are relatively high on some dishes and portions were average. I had fresh spring rolls and a veggie dish. Food was pretty average.

Pros: many vegan options

Wow very good veggy thai currys - Edit

I been there 2016 !! and they have very good vegetarian dishes. Try the currys or the "humus, chapati falafel".
The king is the famous passionfruit pie. Very nice place. A lot of yogi are always there.

Pros: exellent fresh local food, very good thai currys, they don't use MSG,

Can't understand the bad reviews. - Edit

First of all. They Serve vegan food, but also meet. Get over it.

They have plenty of fresh made mocktails and shakes. (Ask for the Big Mountain mocktail.)

Several selfmade combination of hummus and falafel with chapati or roti, i realy was happy after tried so many bad tasteless and bitter hummus and falafel in thailand.

The team is very nice and took great service when it came down to cook gluten-free and vegan for my girlfriend. They even remembered us every time we came, and we didnt have to ask anymore for what food was glutenfree or was able to cook gluten free. Sometimes really a pain in the... in thailand when it has to be vegan and glutenfree.

So overall for Ko Phangan quite a nice place to eat.

Pros: great service, good choices, good average food and currys, mocktails, shakes and fruitshake

Cons: As everywhere in thailand, take time!

Not worth the effort - Edit

Don't go out of your way to find this place. Yes they have lots of vege options on the menu, but they are all pretty ordinary and certainly no better than what you can already get anywhere else by simply asking for a vege version of whatever meat options they offer.

We ordered some whole wheat bread to go and 20 mins later they came out with a severely over-toasted baguette wrapped in aluminium foil - we suspect it may have been several days old. One thing we did enjoy was their juices - they can do a beetroot and carrot juice, which is a rare find on this island. That would be the only reason we could think of for going back though. Service is slow (the chefs were snoozing on the restaurant floor when we arrived) and the outdoor seating area can get pretty hot in the daytime - best to head for the beach and find something there.

Pros: vege juice
