Schöne Atmosphäre aber geschmacklich kein Highlight

Das Restaurant ist schön eingerichtet und das Personal ist freundlich. Die Speisekarte ist extrem umfangreich und hat viele vegane Optionen zu fairen Preisen. Geschmacklich waren die probierten Gerichte aber leider etwas fad und die Portionen nicht besonders groß.

A nice vegetarian place in town

I like Dok Bua on the days that I crave Thai style food or hericium mushrooms.
They serve a wide range of vegan options and I definitely like the lion's mane (hericium) mushrooms, the 'pork' set with som tam and sticky rice and the fried rice. I don't come here often as I eat mainly raw now, but it is a traditional place for many birthdays now! Beautiful interior, nice staff and easy to park in front.

Pros: Simple but nice food, Only place serving the famous hericium mushrooms, Friendly staff

Cons: Not suitable for raw vegans

Great Thai and western style food

There is a huge selection of dishes, both traditional thai/Asian dishes and western favourites.

There are a number of burgers both mock meat and vegetables ones, with fries, lots of curries, lions mane mushroom bites which taste so crazily like meat it's insane. Fresh raw vegetables, avocados, dumplings etc. It's a very nice place and staff are very friendly.

Pros: Excellent food, Good choice, Good portion

Cons: Egg in some dishes

Vegetarian for life

Absolutely healthy ,delicious food and fresh fruit juices with varieties of Thai, Chinese and Western menu. It's a gem here in Phuket town near to Bangkok hospital.

*Not contain garlic or onion in all the dishes

Pros: Love the cottage cheese toast ( Lac-to-ovo), Dumpling, Tempeh super bowl

I was there years ago and then once again a few days ago. Once again a great experience. The atmosphere is very nice and quiet (not easy to find in Phuket these days), cool temperature and the owner is gentle and friendly. The food was quick (there was one other table finishing up as we arrived) and quite tasty and spicy which I enjoy. The location can be a bit tricky if you aren't familiar with the area but its basically up the hill from the hospital on the same road as we cafe. Highly recommended. More upscale experience than most of veg restaurants with similar prices... Would have to agree the best veg restaurant if you're looking for a finer dining experience with reasonable prices in Phuket I've been to.

Best vegan restaurant with cozy design

Nice place with aircon and cozy design in white color. No meat dishes in menu, this is just mock meat. You should try dumplings, tom yam, and red veggie curry. They have fruit smoothies, herbal juices and many kind of flower tea. Many dishes with vegetables and mushrooms only without mock meat - this is excellent for me. Simple the best vegan restaurant in Phuket Town and the great place to try thai cuisine for vegetarian tourists. Amazing quality of the food!

Some good some bad

The mock fish salad was really nice but could use more actual salad, less fried crispy bits. The Hokkien noodle soup was comforting and tasty, the American fried rice must be avoided because it’s simply rice with ketchup and frozen vegetables.

Pros: Many options, Relatively cheap for Phuket

Cons: American fried rice terrible, Needs more photos in menu

Nice restaurant, great food

We had lunch there and also took away. The please is little hard to find but well worth the effort. Dishes are tasty and the place is clean, air-conditioned and nice to sit in.
There are many dishes to choose from, from simple fried rice with vegetable to fake meat curries and dumplings. Just make sure with the owner that the dish is not too spicy for your taste buds.... this is Thailand!

Pros: Tasty, Inexpensive, Pleasant for dine-in

Amazing food, amazing price

Found this wee gem while staying nearby and have been back twice already. Clean, cosy, and airconditioned. Food was best we’ve had during our stay in Phuket - worst bit is choosing what to eat off a huge menu - it all looks so good! Super friendly staff, would 100% recommend ❤️

Pros: Air conditioning, huge menu, cheap

Great spot!

Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant is the same as Dok Bua Vegetarian Restaurant > in Phuket city
2 Soi Ratchapruk, Samkong, Phuket Town, Phuket 83100 > corner of Ratchaphruek and Hongyok Utis alley
Very tricky to spot as the signage is very poor. A small sign saying Lotus Restaurant is located above the restaurant surrounded by foliage. It is on the corner and from one side there are doors but no signs.
+(66) 076 211 985
Nice interior with A/C or patio with no fans
Vegan, vegetarian, assortment of Thai dishes with mock meat in many.
Really fair pricing for quality food. Two of us had 4 main dishes and drinks – so full we had to do take away for what remained. All for 340 Baht!
Tempura Vegetables 70b Great batter! Lovely dip! A bit on the small size.
Spicy Salad w mock liver and veggies 95b Too spicy for me but my dining companion said it was very good.
Red Soy Soup, mock squid and morning glory 60b for a big sized bowl. Good for me, yummy for my companion.
Fried Pumpkin, bean paste and mushrooms 80b Excellent flavors!

Pros: great food, great price, lovely environment

Cons: Poor signage

Large selection

Lotus Vegetarian also serves meat dishes but they have a large selection of vegetarian dishes at a very good price. Friendly staff.
