Eat & Sleep, Evergreen Ecolodge

Having found Evergreen Ecolodge as the only listing on Happycow for Sauraha (the main starting point for visits to Chitwan National Park), we decided not only to eat there, but to check in for our three night trip.

There is not a lot of choice for vegans in Sauraha; in fact, we found nowhere with any mention of vegan on their menu. But having found Evergreen, that didn’t matter - their food is great and we very happily ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there. The menu is fully veggie, and has many items labelled as vegan, and for others, you can ask - the front of house and kitchen staff are very helpful.

During our stay, I had the Vegan “Namaste” for breakfast each morning (a delicious and filling chickpea omelette), and we also tried the muesli with coconut milk; lunch included falafel with excellent homemade fries, and vegetable fried rice (we went on a jungle walk organised by Evergreen one day, and the packed lunch they sent with us was enormous and very tasty); and for dinner we tried the spaghetti bolognese with soya chunks and the appropriately named “Happy Cow” - a couple of vegan steaks served with vegetables and potato purée, which I swapped with those fab fries the second time I had it. They offer a range or soft drinks, plus beer.

We stayed in the bottle house (a building made partially of recycled bottles), and there is accommodation to suit a whole range of tastes, including treehouses and dorms (in an old bus). Water is provided at a small charge in the restaurant - rather than plastic bottles, you can refill as much as you want at a flat rate. The garden is beautiful and you feel very close to nature - beware, however, that this does mean the odd encounter with insects and geckos in your room.

The people working here are lovely - so warm and welcoming to visitors, but clearly also enjoy each other’s company. Special mention to Suraj (I hope I’ve spelt that right). We were very sad to leave.

Pros: Great range or vegan options, Close to nature accommodation , Lovely people (and dogs)

Cons: Not 100% vegan

You are the best!

Just a perfect modest place in sauraha.
Great food, very fresh and tasty. Very nice people too, good prices.
Comparing to the other restaurants in this area, that one is just in a different level. Also, it's just great.
If I could have given them more than five stars I would.

Pros: They can make everything vegan

Tasty food

We didn’t stay here but did have lunch at the restaurant and it was really nice. The menu has some unique items that you can’t find at the usual multi-cuisine restaurants in town, like falafel, vegan bolognaise and chickpea omelet. I had the buddha bowl and my boyfriend the burger, food took a while but it was really tasty. Buddha bowl was just a touch dry for my liking, a wedge of lemon would’ve been perfect.
They can also do a vegan packed lunch to take on a safari/trek which is really handy.

Pros: thoughtful vegan options , reasonably priced , chill place
