The Asian food is amazing with lots of vegan options including different types of curries. The green curry and the pad thai with tofu and jackfruit were really well made. They reminded me of my holidays in Thailand.

10/10 for flavour on vegan options

Incredible fresh food, top 3 best vegan food ive had out. Customer service was brilliant. Only thing that could be at fault is the price, however it was worth £60 for 2 people for the experience of flavours and freshness. (Defo a treat!)

Fantastic Asian food, lots of vegan options!

My husband and I went here for a vegan dinner and we weren’t disappointed! We got the edamame beans, Tempeh satay and fried jackfruit for starters and they were all delicious (especially the jackfruit!) Then we had Pad Thai with tofu and Massaman curry with jackfruit and both were very tasty indeed! We were impressed with the whole menu and loved that nearly all the dishes could be made vegan by substituting meat for tofu, tempeh or jackfruit! I only wish more restaurants were like this. If you’re visiting Newquay definitely book a table here.

Pros: Nearly every dish can be made vegan , Delicious food , Great service and ambience

Cons: A little pricey (but good quality food)

Amazing food and loads of vegan choices.

Food was delicious and we loved every mouthful! Would highly recommend! Loads of vegan choices and alcohol is clearly labeled so you don't have to spend ages checking Barnivore! Staff are very friendly and helpful. You get good sized portions and only regret is that I didn't have room for desert!

Pros: Food is full of flavours, Lots of vegan choices, Vegan alcohol is labelled

Decent food. Good vegan options. Pleasant staff

A good find for vegan options. Good, authentic Asian food. Layout is a bit cold and open for my taste, but that's maybe just me. Nice staff. Starters are a bit pricey at 7.95 for most. Otherwise a solid option. Advise to maybe book depending on time of year, as we only just got in and was a tuesday eve, in late Sept

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: A little expensive.

Asian restaurant in Newquay

Kahuna is not fully veggie/vegan, but offers a good range of vegan options which are clearly indicated on the menu and include some items not often seen in omni restaurants, such as tempeh; several additional dishes can also be adjusted to be vegan as well. Staff are knowledgable about the menu and helpful in providing advice.
I had veggie spring rolls and Thai yellow curry with tempeh (the first time I’ve tried tempeh) - food was well prepared and tasty with good portion sizes.

Pros: Vegan options clearly identified

Varied range of vegan Thai food

Vegan starters and mains on the main menu (I believe desserts also, but we had no room for them!). There are curries and noodle meals with a choice of either jackfruit, tofu or tempeh or all three as the protein. My wife and I loved it and would 100% go back if in the area. The chilli tempeh noodles were to die for!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Choice of tofu, tempeh, jackfruit or all three
