Good food and nice owner

The food was tasty. Didnt really recognise the satay as satay but still good. The owner is a cool guy who cooks the food fresh in front of you. The food is not what you would expect just from the menu. See pictures.

Great place, cooked to order

Really delicious! It's a bit slow, but worth the wait. Really nice Thai food, large portions, and a bit different than the jay places. I'll definitely be back

Cons: Not 100% vegan

Really nice

We had tofu chili basil stir fry and tofu massaman curry and fries - everything was delicious. He puts his own stamp on the dishes which we enjoyed a lot. The owner/chef has very good English.

Be patient when ordering! He cooks everything himself and in order of who gets there first - 2 really rude girls walked out when he was halfway through cooking their meal because they didn't tell him they needed it quickly, he ended up wasting food and money because of their lack of communication. Be mindful of that.

A really nice place in Surat Thani where we didn't find many other good veggie options/nice areas to sit and chill out

Great food cooked in front of you

The vegan food was amazing. The restaurant is run by one guy, so it takes a bit longer than other places, but the food is 100% worth the wait. Would recommend to anyone passing through.

Really good vegan food

It's a really small business with just one man for all (he was kind and nice) and one not really motivated waiter.
The had a extra part for vegan food, and really good variety.
We could watch all while the nice guy was cooking our food and mixing our cocktails. He was very professionell and quick. So we didn't waited long for our food and drinks. The food was soooo good! I really recommend this little bar/Restaurant. It looks nice, they had nice but calm electronic music, kind cooker, fast service, delicious food&drinks!
The restroom is really simple, so be prepared for real thai style toilets.

Would give 5 if I could

One man cooks and serves all the food. We had to wait 2 hours for our meal, but it was so worth it. If you are not in a hurry and want to visit a small restaurant with amazing vibes and great food this is the place

Pros: Vegan section on the menu, Super friendly staff , Great atmosphere

Cons: Toilet is not the best

Good food, reasonably priced with a fair-sized vegan menu.

They also serve meat dishes here, cosy little diner/bar with cool artwork. Owner/staff were super friendly and polite. Will be going back tonight!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Reasonably priced , Great food!

a bistro indeed

it's not that I had a lot of choice in Suratthani, so I'm glad I found this place.

they have a lot of room for improvement tho

as someone else already said, the attitude is friendly, but the cooking itself leaves you with mixed feelings

Pros: nice music and decor, list of vegan food, reasonable prices

Cons: food is simply not that tasty, no special sauce for burgers or fries

Vegan section on menu

The vegan options are listed in a separate section on a blackboard menu (not included in table menu). If I doubt, just ask the staff. They were very friendly and 2 of them spoke good English. I ordered the Phad Thai. Good points - big portion, lots of veggies and included faux meat and tofu. Bad points - it was pleasant but didn't taste like Phad Thai. It tasted a lot like tomato. I've had this before with vegan Phad Thai. I would go back and try another dish though. I forgot to get a picture, but the vegan menu had about 10 - 15 dishes. I can remember green curry, massaman curry, burger and tom yam. Prices were reasonable, I paid 190 baht for the Phad Thai a large Leo.

Pros: Vegan section on menu

Cons: Not great Phad Thai

Attitude was right, food was not.
The menu had a Decent List of vegan, Service was very willing. But when my food did arrive I wanted to cry. It was some lettuce leaves, tomatoes and onion around the rim, and a chunk of boiled spaghetti. That’s it. Not kidding. Oh! There was balsamic vinegar to dress it All. (It did not help 1 bit). never putting
Myself thorough that again. So no let coming back.

Pros: Vegan menu available, English spoken, Attitude

Cons: Food made me cry

Delicious Soup

I loved this nestled little spot right down from the night market. The owner was immaculate and so kind. First i ordered the masala and it was just way to spicy (as it causes my throat to swell) he immediantly took it and made me this amazing soup. But i will say if you like masala and spice it was heavenly and smelled like a million bucks.

Pros: Great owner and staff, Great food, Vegan options

Cons: Nothing

Open for Dinner!

This is one of the only veggie friendly restaurants open at night in this city so it definitely fills a gap in the market. It is a bit small and hot but has a cool vibe with music and cocktails. The kitchen is right in the middle of the venue. There is only one guy cooking so it might take a while, but the food is pretty good. Vegan options are clearly marked.

Pros: Clear vegan dishes, Open at night, Cool vibe

Cons: Not all vegan

Craft Bistro was so delicious! The wait for your food is long because there is only on guy working here, but it’s worth the wait. I got our table got vegan masala, vegan pad Thai, and coconut shrimp curry(all separate meals). My masala was super flavorful and my friends pad Thai was so good. I ended up ordering it to go so I could wake up and eat it the next morning! I was so happy!

Pros: Lot of vegan options, Fresh food, Cute and cozy

Cons: Only one person working/cooking

Thank you

A small place not far from the city core, I was out late and started looking for something to eat and this place came up as the only open option. I decided to go there and I'm really happy I did. If you need to somewhere to eat this is the place. I just wish I had more time to try their other vegan options. Best of luck

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Friendly staff, Cheap
