Best Indian Food Ever

Sehr empfehlenswerte indische, aber auch thailändische Küche. Super freundliches und aufmerksames Personal. Sprechen gut Englisch und nehmen sich Zeit die Gerichte zu erklären oder zu empfehlen. Wir waren wegen dem vielfältigen veganen Angebot dort und waren extrem begeistert vom Geschmack, der Menge, und der richtigen Schärfe.
Haben auch "to go", unweit vom Strand, so sind Samosas, Onion Rings oder Pitabrot für den Hunger zwischendurch ein Genuss.
Personal kennt sehr gut den Unterschied zwischen vegan und vegetarisch, was ja leider nicht immer so ist.

Pros: Große Portionen, Personal kennt sich aus

Cons: Keine vegane Kennzeichnung, Personal hilft gerne

Great option

Thankful that this option is around Kata beach. The menu does not label items as vegan so we had to talk to the chef. He pointed out what he could make vegan. I had the Dal Makhani and it was really good. I didn’t give it a full 5 stars because I thought labeling the dishes would be nice and it was a little pricey. Great flavors though!

Loads of vegan options

Ordered via Grab to the hotel as I was in quarantine and couldn’t go out.
Ordered their vegan biryani, samosas, tofu butter chicken and kathi rolls.
It was good, but I felt everything was seasoned very similarly, so no matter what I ate it all tasted the same 😅 Might just be my personal preference to not having all Indian food tasting the same 🙈 But i would go there again to try other items.
Samosas and rolls were my favorite.
No drinks on the grab delivery menu which was unfortunate as only had limited amount of water in the hotel room.

Pleasant surprise! Delicious meal

We discovered this place while exploring Karon beach and we were pleasantly surprised. It’s not a vegetarian/vegan restaurant so initially we were worried we’d have a hard time finding a vegan option but it wasn’t an issue. Let the staff know you want vegetarian meals and they’ll provide you with a menu that is just vegetarian meals with vegan options.
It’s not the cheapest meals but considering everything is very pricey by the beach the prices are great.

I ordered a Pad See Ew dish and it was so much tastier than I expected! Really great fresh dish. My boyfriend ordered a Tom Yom soup and he was blown away by how tastey it was. We weren’t expecting much but it was a nice surprise. The owner was in that day and she was very friendly. I recommend checking it out!

Pros: Vegetarian menu , Indian and Thai options, Delicious food

Cons: Not the cheapest but not expensive

Ask for vegetarian menu

The restaurant has “vegan” printed on the window but not all staff are familiar with the term, ask for the vegetarian menu and adjustments can be made from there. Had an average sweet and sour (but it did have tofu which is a rarity in this part of Phuket), and a pretty good masamun curry

Dimpy was so helpful!

Dimpy suggested many yummy items that they can make vegan. At first we weren’t hungry and ordered a dish to share that she recommended with bread cooked without milk or butter. So good that we ordered another course and asked Dimpy to recommend. A lot of choice. Fresh spices made everything delicious.

Pros: Vegan choices and great understanding of vegan.

Can adapt certain items to make them vegan friendly. Service was friendly but found the food average with measly portion sizes. The Thai food is ok priced but the Indian food was expensive.

Good veggie options

Flick through the menu and you'd think there were no Indian food options. In fact, the entire Indian menu is after the desserts!

Vegetarian options were plentiful, although few looked like they were instantly vegan (we didn't ask for them to be veganised either). Proprietor scaled our spice request based on our nationality, but we think he underspiced a little. Food was also a bit salty, but we've come to expect that from Thailand by now... Otherwise, very happy with the food; it was good value for Karon beach area.

Pros: Lots of vegetarian options, Get the coconut juice!, Good value for the area

Cons: Little too salty, Fan only, no aircon

Good Thai noodles

When you ask for vegan food they will point at some dishes on the menu that can be made vegan. I have tried the mushroom masala, and the two noodle dishes that could be made vegan. The indian dish was VERY spicy, both the noodle dishes were good, the noodles were cheap and the indian a bit more expensive still worth it though!

The restaurant is right by a busy street and it was very hot inside.

Pros: Friendly people working there , Good price

Cons: Busy street , You have to ask and make sure you get it vegan
