Exciting to have so many vegan options

After hiking up to the view points above Koh Phi Phi, this is the place to come back down the hill and reward yourself, with so many vegan options. It was like being a kid in a candy store and this is a good place if you want mock meat instead of tofu for your vegan protein, because sometimes in Thailand it is nice to have an alternative to tofu.

Note - I wrote this in August 2023, but visited the restaurant in late July 2023.

Good options

Many many options (maybe too many). The staff is really kind. I ordered the massaman curry with fake chicken. The curry was nice full of veggies but the fake chicken was awful. I guess is not their fault, just make sure you dont opt for any fake meat and you will be fine😄.

Pros: Big portoon

Great choices

The menu is quite extensive, with everything you could think of. Just don't order the onion rings, they are the worst I've ever had in my life.
Also they made me sit on the patio, where they blast bad music and employees smoke next to me.

Blank food

The place is popular because it’s the only one fully vegetarian place on the island, it’s easy to eat sth vegan there, there is a wide variety of mock meats. They also give you this funny board game to plate while you’re waiting. That’s all of the good things that I can mention about the restaurant. The food itself isn’t tasty, rather blank. I’ve had pad Thai and it looked as if was mixed with mayonnaise, as if they didn’t put dark soy sauce. The curry was strange, it was a bit spicy but not in a good Thai manner. I don’t recommend unless it’s really hard for you to find sth vegan elsewhere.

Many Options, Ok Quality

Dow Vegan is located in the center of Phi Phi’s businesses across from it’s sister kosher restaurant. There are some friendly cats and plenty of books to give library vibes.

You’ll be impressed with the extensive menu with plenty of Thai options and even some Italian and Middle Easter ones. The Thai food was decently good, but the falafel, hummus, and pita were subpar. I returned because I knew I could order vegetarian.

Prices are double what you’ll find at less touristy places.

Pros: Huge vegetarian menu

Cons: Inconsistent quality, Expensive

So many options!

It was a treat to find such an array of mock meats and all sorts of dishes. You have to ask what is / can be made vegan, with such a big menu it would be better to be clearly labelled for proper thinking time! I tried the vegan carbonara. It was great to have something so different but it did lack a little flavour (was just creamy tasty, perhaps this is how carbonara is meant to be? Personally I'd have added miso and nutrional yeast etc for more flavour) added salt and pepper and soy sauce which are on the table definitely jazzed it up! Still lovely to have such different options and I'd definitely want to try other things. It was great that my non vegan partner could order from the meat menu from the opposite restaurant and eat together

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Meat eaters can get food from opposite restaurant, Seem to be able to veganise a lot of meals

Cons: Not cheap, Not labelled vegan, have to ask

Best Thai food!

Myself (vego), my partner (meat eater) and my two friends (vegan) went here twice in the two days we were on Phi Phi because the food was so delicious and the menu was extensive. My partner could order meat from the restaurant across the walkway and eat it here too. You could order anything on this menu and be very happy!

Pros: 40+ vegan/vego meals

Favorite vegan place in Phi Phi!

Dow has a non-vegetarian and a vegetarian restaurant, the latter offers lots of vegan options! They serve authentic Thai food, which I can absolutely recommend. I tried their summer rolls, pad thai, green curry, massaman curry and fried broccoli. It's absolutely fantastic! Plus they offer fruit smoothies. And they are pretty cheap. Can't complain. :)

Curry delicioso

Lugar muy agradable y personal muy atento y amable. Te dan unos juegos mientras esperas a que llegue tu comida para que se haga las ameno. El massaman curry estaba delicioso. Tienen muchas proteínas “fake meat” para elegir. El único contra sería que ponen poca cantidad de fake meat por lo que pedimos un fake pollo como ración y vino con mucho rebozado y no nos gustó.

Pros: Carta vegana extensa, Personal atento y amable , Muchas opciones de proteína

Cons: Poca cantidad de proteína en los platos
