Full page of vegetarian options and they can make it vegan and know what vegan is. Homemade chips with salsa, bean dip and guacamole is a must. Staff is friendly and provide service great.

Good Mexican

The food is pretty good and when asked they try their best to make some vegan dishes for you. There can be some confusion as to what is vegan and what isn't, in my case I was served a burrito with lots of sour cream, so just tell them what you can't have or do not want on your food and they will try to accommodate you.
Only minus is the price. Very expensive for the area and for what you get.

Good food

Food is good and they’re happy to make things vegan. Friendly staff and good place. But hella expensive, definitely not for a traveller budget. 560 baht for enchiladas!

Pros: Good vegan options

Cons: Soooo expensive

Soooo gooood!!!!

Our favourite place on the island. So good that we went there four nights in a row. We tried different options, however fajitas was the best one. They switch sour cream for guacamole without extra charge.
PS: their home made jalapeño sauce is so tasty (not too spicy)!

Overall, highly suggested place to go!

Pros: Great variety of vegetarian/vegan options , Really great service, Understand what vegan means

Cons: No vegan cheese, 3% charge for playing with the card

Yum Tex Mex

Large vegetarian menu which includes tacos, burritos, chimichangas etc. Can be made vegan when asked to be served without sour cream, cheese and slaw. I had the chimichangas and really enjoyed! I would definitely return 😀

Pros: Large vegetarian menu - which can be made vegan., Great Mexican food!

Cons: Slightly expensive for area.

Good tex mex food

They have a page full of vegetarian options, most of which can be made vegan.
I had the vegetarian enchiladas (no cheese or sour cream) and would happily get these again.

A nice place to visit if you’re bored of Thai food !

Pros: Vegetarian options that can be made vegan, Quick service , Friendly staff

Oh my wow the green sauce!

They make their own sauce and it’s amazing. Vegan no problem, plenty of vegetarian items can be veganised. Down a lane, great outdoor setting, went twice!

Pros: Amazing food, Good price, Fast service

Cons: No vegan cheese

No vegan options

We searched this place out s it was listed on here as having vegan options, it is in pricey Chaweng area and there are no vegan options on the menu. We both went for vegetarian chilli as it didn't list cheese in the ingredients on the menu, I asked the waitress if it was 'jai' / 'vegan' she said yes and it came out with a load of cheese on top. The food was okay, but hard to scrape all the cheese off. It's misleading to have it on Happy cow though good looking vegetarian options.

Pros: nice atmosphere

Cons: no vegan options, expensive (normal Chaweng prices
