Just okay - Edit

We went here based on all the rave reviews it recieved, and were a bit disappointed. When we showed up, we came and sat down, assuming someone would bring us a menu, but that didn’t happen so we went and found one inside around the corner of the door, most of the items are crossed off, but they are crossed off with a blue marker so you can still read them, which was confusing, maybe that is just the blonde in me though. We decided what we wanted and waited for someone to come take our order, which we had seen them do for the 3 other tables. We had been there for probably 20 minutes with no one coming to check on us or take our order. I eventually just did what I did with the menu and went inside to order. We got the mushroom and tofu scramble sandwich. It was okay but nothing out of the water amazing. The sandwich was 160 THB which seemed a bit high for what we got, but that seems to be normal for all vegetarian restaurants around here. When I went to pay, I gave the woman at the counter 200 bhat and she looked uoset and asked why I didn’t have exact change. I would understand if I was giving her a larger bill saying something to that regard, but it felt a bit unwarranted when I only needed 40 in change.

Cons: Lots of items on the large menu crossed out, Long wait time, High price for portion size

Could be a nice try - Edit

Actually, I really was looking forward to eat there. But when I got there, I definitely was a bit disappointed. The have a huge menu, but most of the dishes are crossed out and therefore not available. And so it is, that you only can choose between two different smoothies for example. Unfortunately the waitress speaks barely any English and so you can't find out what's gluten-free and what's not. But the taste of the dishes you get is good.

Excellent food - Edit

We had the pad thai and the duo d-light.
Really, really good.
I think the only non vegan food is the egg you can have for breakfast. But even that you can replace by a vegan option.

Pros: lots of vegan choices

Best food I had in Thailand - Edit

Everything I tried on their menu was simply incredible. My boyfriend had papaya salads in about 10 different restaurants all over thailand (mostly omni) and he stated Happy Veggie's papaya salad was the best by far. It is quite pricey though, but worth your money.

Pros: Gorgeous food, Nice atmosphere, Friendly owner

Cons: Expensive for Thai standards, Just beneath the street (loud)

could be better - Edit

I ate tofu sandwich and it was incredible, but my boyfriend ordered papaya salad which was so sour that he couldn't eat it. Also there are not so many dishes to choose from. But they have 100% fresh made juice (which is rare in Thailand).

Pros: Friendly staff , Cozy atmosphere , Fresh made juice

Cons: Poor variety of food

delicious and nutritious! - Edit

Servers are extremely polite and friendly! Had the tofu burger and it was incredible, was slightly more expensive than other places we had eaten but after eating it was worth it. Tasted so healthy and full of veggies! My boyfriend had the pumpkin and hummus sandwich which he also enjoyed and was happy to have a veggie sandwich that wasn’t egg.

Pros: loads of variety, large portions

Samosa and spring rolls-must try! - Edit

During our stay at Ko Lanta, we were mainly eating here, we had pad thai ( ate a lot if them in Thailand, this is one of the bests), rice with fried vegetables, curry with sweet patato ( good but a bit too sweet for me) and something with brown rice, eggplant and pesto- everything very good! Quite some costumers, so take some time for eating here!

Myself and I enjoyed the Tofu burger and pineapple rice! The burger was jammed with veggies with a black bean burger bun, Tasty!!! The rice was also peppered with healthy veggies to counter the rice. Lovely service and quick!

enttäuschend - Edit

Auf der Menükarte sah so einiges gut aus, als wir das Essen (endlich) bekamen, waren wir aber eher enttäuscht...
Ausserdem spricht das Personal kaum Englisch und auf Essen und Rechnung mussten wir lange warten.

Don’t expect too much.. - Edit

I ate here twice and though the food is good, there’s a serious problem with the staff. They’re kind and friendly but don’t understand English. I ordered a drink first, then an appetizer and then my main course. I got my drink, then my main accompagnied by a dish I didn’t order and when I was finishing my main they brought my appetizer. The menu is halfly crossed out and make sure you ask if everything is included (no tartar sauce with French fries). I use this app regurarly and it’s with deep regret that I write this because I really think this resto has very more to offer if managed by good English speaking staff (which they are looking for).
It’s because in our view this is all cheap but it doesn’t mean that we have to put up with the lack of service they are offering. I really hope this resto keeps its heart in serving good food.

Pros: Good food/good price

Cons: there’s no way you can explain anything if no-one

Delightful & delicious! - Edit

Happy Veggie is absolutely delicious, affordable and beautiful. The owner is so nice, and everything we ate was so delicious, and made by the owner to order. Beautifully plated & large portions for good prices (especially on Koh Lanta, where things are a bit pricier). The raw food was shockingly good, too. I really recommend coming here!

Pros: Delicious , Fresh, Affordable

I love Happy Veggie Restaurant!! - Edit

I love Happy Veggie Restaurant!! Penang Curry had sweet potatoes, taro, tofu and Veggies. Really good!! The owner is the sweetest women. Hard to believe she has only been open for four months.

As a friend dining with the reviewer, I enjoyed the Pumpkin Hummus sandwich on whole wheat. Crunchy, fresh, tangy - with a zip from the Curry to complement it all. I would absolutely order this again!

Pros: Amazing Penang Curry , veggies are super fresh, wonderful relaxing place

Best Vegan Food on Koh Lanta. - Edit

I've visited 3 times now. Each time the food is delicious! Also fresh, and not oily.
The lady is so nice and friendly. It's a one woman show as far as I'm aware so if it's busy you'll wait a while.

Pros: Amazing food, Clean, not oily, fresh , Reasonably priced

Cons: May be slow if busy

Great fresh food - Edit

It is so good to have vegetarian restaurants in Koh Lanta, because in other places they use curry and chili pastes that are bought from the market and they contain shrimp past in general. At Happy Veggie you can order curries, tom yam, som tam etc. without shrimp or fish.

Food is good and fresh, portion sizes are good, you can have food without too much chili and service is lovely. Dishes have a bit sweet taste that I like in Thai food. And I like that the prices of dishes seem to be just right.

Location of Happy Veggie is great, because Lanta Animal Welfare is almost behind the corner and Relax Bay Beach is a few minutes walk from there.

They have mostly outdoor seating, other tables more in shade than others.

Pros: Great food, Prices are right

Vegan at it's best! - Edit

One of the best vegan (it's almost vegan there, beside one or two dishes with egg) places, I habe been in Thailand!
I ate there several times and tried out most from the card and will recommend simply everything! Also try a fruit shake!

Pros: almost everything vegan

Amazing! - Edit

The menu is not fully vegan as there are breakfast dishes with egg. But the vegan dishes are beyond delicious and the shakes are huge. The owner is such a lovely person! When she's alone in the kitchen orders may take a little while but it's definitely worth waiting!

Pros: raw food available

Cons: located next to the street

Amazing Wonderful Superb! - Edit

THE BEST vegan/vegetarian place in Thailand. Period. There isn't enough superlatives for this beautiful little home-like spot. Most meals are vegan yet full of flavour and colours. We ate here twice a day on average while staying on Lanta and are going to miss it very much! An obligatory experience on Lanta.

Pros: Best food in Thailand, Nice and friendly staff, Relaxing environment
