The restaurant was busy when I arrived but still had a few places left so I chose to eat in. Ordered the veg ginger stir fry with tofu (extra 3 AUD) and deep fried tofu with satay sauce to start. The deep fried tofu was silken tofu while the stir fry featured smoked tofu (my favourite). The portion was large but so tasty that I ate everything 😋

Best Pad-Thai outside of Thailand!

Honestly. The restaurant has self-served chilli flakes/sauce and salt, served how Thai-locals want it - that’s when you know it’s authentic! It was also a very popular spot, we got there just after 5 and it was filling up by 5:30-5:45 when we left.
Our food came out really quickly, and all vegan options were clearly marked on the menu. Staff were happy to accommodate us!

Pros: Such tasty, authentic Thai food , Friendly, fast service

10/10 tasty and delicious good service

Would rate 5 stars if could.
The food was the best vegan thai food I have ever tasted, the staff were very kind and were fast at serving us with a very reasonable price. They showed their amazing Lego woolworths to my son and was happy to let the pram in shop.

Pros: Delicious , Cheap, Friendly

Cons: Small shop

Good choice in crazy expensive Cairns

Has been our favourite Thai in Cairns for a few years. This year 2021, some meal portions are reduced, still ultra oily but tasty.

Pros: A few tasty options available for vegans.

Cons: Expensive for a hole in the wall type restaurant.

Contrary to some reviews here, there aren’t ANY labeled “vegan” options that I saw and I found the staff a little impatient and unsure when explaining vegan requests. Nonetheless, they still managed to whip up my order and it was tasty. Almost all of their noodles are “egg noodles” by default which is a slight shame. No “yellow” curry which is strange to see for a Thai spot. I did get them 20 minutes before closing so that might’ve had something to do with it? I’m sure it’s a 4-star spot, I just got the timing off.

Pros: Several vegan options, Tasty food

Cons: A bit too oily, Somewhat unsure about “vegan”

Pad Thai

Not the best food flavour wise, it was very bland and oily, but not too bad for portion size.

Authentic bargain

Multiple clearly labelled vegan options. So far I can confirm that their curries, pad Thai, fried rice and Rad Nah are all delicious.

Serving sizes are massive and several Thai friends have confirmed that it’s the closest to home style Thai cooking they’ve had in Cairns.

Only downsize is the small size of the restaurant.

Pros: Cheap, Clear options , Authentic

Cons: Cramped

10/10 would recommend

Items are clearly labelled vegan and here are several options to choose from. Would recommend adding fried tofu for $7. The dish you choose will come with tofu but only a small amount and the fried tofu is so amazing and worth adding as an extra! Also would recommend the coconut rice. Would definitely eat here again.

Pros: Restaurant is clean, Plenty of fresh veggies, Plenty of options

My favourite restaurant in Cairns!

I had a delicious vegan dinner tonight of stir fried vegetables, tofu and cashews with rice. My companion had an excellent vegetarian soup that was actually vegan too. If I lived in Cairns I would eat here often. Did I say that it was not expensive at all?

Fast, easy, cheap vegan

Easy, fast vegan meals. I wouldn’t get dressed fancy to go here or bring a date, but it’s a good place to eat at if you like late dinners. Everywhere else in Cairns was shut by 9pm and these guys were open on Easter Sunday. Staff understand vegan, friendly and fast. I ordered and had my main in front of me within 2-3 minutes, I paid $12 for dinner. I would definitely go back.

Cheap lunch

I bought a lunch - only $10 and there was a lot of rice, vegetables and some tofu (soft with some kind of crisp coating). The food was good and came SUPER fast, like in two minutes!

Pros: Cheap, Good, Fast
