First Review by Japa_D

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

Excellent food, large portions, friendly staff - Edit

My wife and I did our hotel booking in the near area because of knowing there were 2 vegetarian restaurants nearby (this one & Kunda). Happy Veggie was our first restaurant upon arriving in Koh Lanta, having spent the last 3 nights on Koh Ngai. We were very hungry, but used to smaller portion sizes on Koh Ngai so we ordered too much food, as the portions were quite large. No problem as we love leftovers. I had a tasty stir fry with a very delicious order of sweet potato/potato French fries (baked too, not deep fried). My wife had a cashew nut stir fry and an order of pineapple rice (excellent presentation).

We had a wonderful chat with the owner Puk as she is very passionate about her cooking. She also told us about the animal welfare Center just around the corner, as we will stop there during our few days on Koh Lanta for a tour.

Excellent food, cute little cafe and very friendly staff (the 2 ladies). We are going back today for dinner after checking out Kunda Cafe for lunch..

Pros: Quality Food, Great Service, Friendly Staff

Best food in Koh Lanta - Edit

We came to the place because of the good Happy Cow reviews and we really can confirm all the good stuff that has been written. We loved every of our dishes, especially the raw pad thai. We were sad that we did not find it earlier as we only had the possibilty to go there on our last three days. We would have tried every dish if there had been more time.
The owner is really friendly and passionate about cooking, if she has the time she likes to chat with the customers and explain the ingredients. The friendliness also applies to the other staff. We definitely recommend the raw pad thai, the pumpkin hummus sandwich and the homemade ice tea. The price is definitely reasonable, nearly the same as for vegetarian dishes in the restaurants on the main street. We would love to come back in the future :-)

Pros: Taste, Friendly staff, Price

Cons: None, None, None

Happy bellies at Happy Veggie - Edit

What an amazing little spot. The owner was so sweet and friendly I would have gone back just to see her! We were lucky enough to find this place on our second day in Koh Lanta and then it was the only place we ate out at! On our multiple visits we ordered: spring rolls, samosa, pan fried tofu (you can get all the above 3 items in an appetizer), Pineapple banana smoothie, pesto pasta, stir fried mixed veggies with rice, Pineapple fried rice. All of our food was delicious and hot and our smoothies were rich and refreshing. To top it off, everything was very moderately priced (50-120 baht). This place is a big factor to why I wish we had more time in Koh Lanta! You won't be disappointed if you make a trip to Happy Veggie!

Pros: Delicious food and drink, Great prices , Amazing staff

Cons: None, None , None

Excellent - so fresh and tasty! - Edit

This is a fantastic restaurant where you can be assured everything on the menu is veggie or vegan. I had the raw pad Thai and an absolutely delicious vegetable samosa that was very creatively presented.

The owner is wonderful - a true animal lover who takes time to get to know her customers.

The restaurant and outside seating area is very clean, bright and comfortable, and there are some lovely and well-cared for cats who may keep you company as you dine.

Pros: Excellent food, Clear menu, Very friendly staff

Cons: None!

Superb - Edit

I'm so happy to found this lovely place! Have visited here three times so far. Every time the food has been amazingly tasty. So fresh and full of flavours. Must try raw pad thai, pasta pesto, hummus sandwich..all vegan, all good. Last visit me and my husband had a one stater to share and one main meal/ person. We asked part of the food to take away as the portions are fair. Oh and also fruit smoothies are very good. And they even add soy milk or coconut cream if you want. The lady who runs the restaurant is very lovely and sweet. Definitely recommend this restaurant!

one of the best - Edit

We came here a few times on our stay in koh lanta and each time was better then the other! The lady who runs the place is so sweet and nice and did the best to make us happy with our dishes. The sandwiches are fresh and delicious, the portions are pretty big and the smoothies are amazing. She stocks on vegan mayo so you should ask for it in your sandwich. Spring rolls are delicious.

Decent Food, Hit and Miss Service - Edit

The food is definitely really good as are the fruit shakes but on our last visit my friend got her food last even though we were the first to arrive and all the other tables were served before she get hers.
Apart from that, we really liked it.
