658/22 Tambon Talat, Amphoe Mueang Surat thani, Chang wat Surat Thank, Surat Thani, Thailand

A small, family-run typical Thai style vegan restaurant located just north of the Quan Ying shrine and the Coliseum shopping mall. No menu, just point to what you see and would like. Food is spicy. Also sells snacks for takeaway. No English spoken. Open Mon 6:00am-6:30pm, Tue-Sun 6:00am-6:00pm.

First Review by Ianthewander

Happy Cow map location is CORRECT, as of Dec. 2017 - Edit

This place is pretty good! Nothing to write home about, but tasty, nourishing food in a town without many options. I'm thankful for it, and happy to support such a place (even if it's not quite as good as Surat Vegetarian).

The food quality was par for Thai jay buffets, but the selection was actually broader than I expected - maybe 12-15 dishes to choose from (as opposed to the usual half-dozen). I got three with no rice, and paid 40BHT.

Regarding the digs, I was totally comfortable here. This is definitely not one of those fancy new vegan places that cater to moneyed travelers. It's just a normal little shop in a normal, gritty city in a relatively poor part of the world. Great family vibe, too - laughing kids, chatting adults.

Pros: Solid vegan food in a town of limited choices, Awesome cost / quality, Nice family vibe

lovely food to no cost - Edit

We ate here two times and loved it.

It's as some others have pointed out not the cozyest place around but we still find the atmosphere nice and genuine.

Our last lunch was under 100 bath and we got super satisfied. We payed 100 anyways and left happy.

Pros: super cheep , nice staff

how to find: check photos - Edit

Not where HappyCow map points. Or probably moved. Anyway, one jaay restaurant is near, but seems to be open between 6.00-14.00.

Gojo 27 Dec 2017 - These photos and the map are for a completely different restaurant! As of December 2017, the official Happy Cow map listing is correct.

Unexpectedly Pleasing - Edit

There are a couple of 'jey' (vegan) stores in Surat Thani and this one is the best. For a province like this where veggie food is hard to find this one is surprisingly good! It's typical Thai style, so expect buffet laid out food and just point to what you want. No English spoken. The selection is good though and it isn't just standard food there are a whole load of snacks and drinks and even salapao (steamed bun things.) This place will probably save the day for you in a city like this. Their opening hours are quite long and they're open every day. It's not exactly the nicest of places to sit but you can't be fussy. It will be full of Thais eating too which is always a good sign.

Pros: Cheap, All vegan, Plenty of options

Cons: Tatty place to sit

Couldn't find it. Map spot wrong or closed? - Edit

Couldn't find it. Map spot wrong, moved or closed?
Searched quickly for it at 4:05pm on a Thursday afternoon. Then gave up and walked 1km eastward to Surat Thani Vegetarian and ate very happily there.

The first veg resto in Surat Thani - Edit

Veg restaurants do exist in Surat, but they have a low profile. This is the best of the lot. There is not a great variety of food on offer, nor is it gourmet quality, but it is filling, and, the price cannot be beat. A few dollars for a full meal.

Pros: Tasty, Cheap, Location

Cons: tad grotty, small range of food, irregular hours, sometimes not open
