Would not recommend

Enjoyed it the first time
The Massaman curry is really creamy and rich in flavor with several different types of veg

- the special brown fried rice lacks a bit of flavor
- the green curry also very bland and not many flavors unfortunately doesn’t taste like anything
- wanted to give it another chance and ordered the Chu chi curry - I was greeted with green curry again? (Sorry but it’s not funny if the food is bad?! I was giving another chance) the curry was very small size, nothing special hardly a piece of veg just tofu and it also arrived cold. When I told them it’s cold he started arguing it’s hot and not cold (I mean who is the one who just tried it?) I should have just left straight away - they heated it up again and then it was warm still not hot and also lack of spices.
Was here the first time 2016 and back then it was really good. I have been to several other places on this island maybe have a look
If you want to have an overpriced meal in a nice backyard with bad service go for it
They could offer free tab water though!
Many vegan options

Nice dinner location

Really good food with loads of vegetarian options that can be made vegan easily. The staff understand if you ask for the food to be made vegan/with no egg. The Panang curry was delicious and a big portion size and the pad Thai was also really good. Nice vibe with a little shop to one side.

Very friendly staff, wonderful vegan food

A lot of vegetarian options that can be made vegan. Also clearly marked vegan options. Be specific in what you eat and don't eat. They will help you.
You can choose tofu and soy protein instead of chicken and fish.

Pros: Friendly staff, Vegan options and adaptations

Saved my ass

This place saved my ass twice as there were no vegan options open for dinner during this low season.

Staff can speak English and know what vegan is, also very friendly.

Food was delicious with big portions and very tasty.

Pros: Open till late, Open in low season , Can turn options vegan

Couldn't fault it

I came here once. Ordered spring rolls for entree and they were great! followed by masaman curry for main and it way tasty. Some curry's I've had in Thailand are so-so but not this one! Good atmosphere. I'd happily recommend this place for good vegan food.

Pros: They understand vegan

Lots of vegetarian options

If you are bored with the beach restaurants, Irie Bar is a good option next to Long Beach. They have several vegetarian options, some vegan also. Food was very good, better than the beach restaurant ones. Very calm place with good reggae music and friendly staff and two nice dogs. Prices are similar to the beach restaurants so not very cheap.

Awesome Food

We ordered the cheesy rice and the veg set. Both were scrummy. The veggie paddies in the veg set were like super-tasty falafels. Recommended! For some silly reason I can only give 4/5 because i'm registered as mostly veggie. Otherwise it would be 5/5!

Delicious UniqueThai Food...and Brown Rice!!

Do yourself a favor, get out of the heat, and come have a meal here. The menu has had both veg and non-vegetarian options, though we were told that most everything can be made vegan. We had the Vietnamese spring rolls (unfried, no noodles, no protein) which came with a warm yummy peanut sauce. Then we got the Special Brown Fried Rice with tofu which had a pleasing array of veggies and fruits AND cashews! Did I mention brown rice?? We also had the Chu chi Curry with soy protein which tasted very fresh. The menu features a vegan chocolate mousse which we didn't have room for, but are already planning on returning for it. Would give this place 5 stars but the maximum rating happy cow allows for a non vegetarian restaurant is 4 stars.

Pros: Understand Vegan, Brown Rice

Cons: Moderately Pricey

Plain Boring Salad

I ordered a Mixed Greens Salad and it did say it included seasonal veggies. What was included was 4 veggies - lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes with a few chopped canned olives and sunflower seeds thrown in. The dressing was without flavor. For 150thb
($4.50 USD) this was a very plain, boring, average salad. I expected more flavor from a vegetarian restaurant.

Pros: Greens were fairly fresh, 4 veggies included, no msg

Cons: only 4 veggies, no flavor or creative dressing, plain salad
