One of the best restaurants ever! - Edit

Love this place so much. I stayed in Agonda for more than 3 months and went there every day! It's was so nice to finally find a restaurant which offers tasty and fresh vegan food.

The food is really amazing. Definitely the best place in India and one of the best restaurants I've been to. They offer amazing salads, smoothies, great tofu dishes, pancakes and really good vegan chocolate cake. Also, most of the vegetarian dishes can be made vegan. I especially like pumkin fritters and mango treat smoothie :)
The owners and the staff are really professional and helpful and the location is very beautiful and quiet. You can watch monkeys sitting in the trees while you eat:)
Definitely recommend this place to everyone. It's a must visit if you are in the area.

Pros: amazing vegan food, nice location, helpfull staff

Cons: not entirely vegan

One of the best restaurants in India - Edit

We were ecstatic to discover Blue Planet.

The sweet folks who own and run the place make it magical, and that is due in equal parts to the creative cuisine and their warm personalities.

Blue Planet serves inspired dishes, including many original inventions. The diverse menu includes meals, soups, salads, snacks, desserts, and a generous selection of juices, smoothies, and other drinks. Almost everything can be made vegan. Even the lassi can be made with soy yoghurt, which was a real treat.

The salads are a must-have, for two reasons. First, they soak the salad ingredients in an antimicrobial solution to make them completely safe. (This is a big deal, because simply washing the greens with boiled/filtered water, as many other restaurants do, does not make them bacteriologically safe.) Second, they really know how to make a tasty salad. Their flair for flavor applies to their salads as well as their cooked meals.

We were told that they're currently using about 20% organic ingredients, and hoping to increase the percentage as more becomes available locally.

We ate here half a dozen times, trying as many different things as possible, and everything we had was great.

Our favorites:
- Flax noodles with avocado pesto
- Avocado salad
- Vegan strawberry lassi
- Vegan avocado shake

Also especially good:
- Tofu sticks with pineapple sauce
- Stuffed "mufa" (big dumpling)
- Vegan carrot cake with chocolate sauce.

Moderate prices, fair considering the quality of the food.

It's located in the forest above Agonda beach and would be a long walk on foot, but those who make the journey will be well rewarded. (We rented a scooter, which makes it quite easy.)

Highly recommended! :-)

Pros: Exceptionally creative cuisine, Very vegan-friendly, Great people

Grrrrreat! - Edit

Wow! In the middle of the jungle there's a restaurant and they offer pure vegetarian meals with such interesting combinations. It's not indian at all. It's very much europian/western. They have tofu, lasagna ... and so many juices. The owner is great - he can explain everything to you and if you want to complicate your order he will take it and deliver.
He told me they were before on Palolem beach but it got too busy and they moved to this jungle just little above Agonda beach. It's quiet, calm and relaxing. While waiting for the food you can chill with a smoothie of some sort or a "power juice". Incredible. There's also a house cat that will ask for some food when it wakes up, but will not take tofu or seitan coming from your plate - it eats only fish - so it will stay hungry be cause they have none. =)
So, Blue Planet is the perfect getaway for evey day lunch if you're relaxing on Agonda. The beach itself is peaceful and so beautiful and than you just take a ride (rikshaw lets say) up to BP an chill out some more with good healthy food. All in all it will cost you about the same if you would eat on the beach.
I went there twice and the second time I ate so much I was fasting for next 2 days.

Pros: delicious, very friendly, lower prices

Cons: not on the beach, long waiting, small parking space

Liked it a lot - Edit

I really liked Blue Planet. We went there twice and each time the food was great & the staff were very friendly. I had a banana, vanilla & soya milk smoothie which was fab and the organic avocado salad with tofu scramble which was very tasty. The only downer is the location it's hard to reach without your own transport - the first time we used the infrequent bus service and the second we hired a scooter.

Pros: good healthy food, soya smoothies, vegan cake

Cons: location - need own transport

This restaurant is fantastic. Almost vegan, and aiming for veganism. Owned by a lovely local Indian family who speak great English. They make soy milk from organic beans(apparently - but I am not certain) and soy yoghurt and tofu. This is the only place I've been able to get a vegan mango lassie in India. The strawberry soy lassie is also wonderful. The tofu is a bit bland but all the dishes come with amazing dips, hummus, dressings, pesto etc. There is a great range of raw salads and juices and the water is fine. I drank it the whole time I was in Goa and didn't get sick. There are vegan cakes as well, some gluten and sugar free. Blue Planet is moving to a new location soon where it will become even better and hopefully all vegan!

Pros: vegan cakes, vegan yoghurt, fresh salads

Cons: not 100% vegan
