50/50 and a little pricy

So this spot did clarify and knew right away what was vegan and not. Or what could be made vegan. Pad Thai sauce is pre-made and contains fish sauce. Curries are also pre-made and contain fish sauce. He even went back to the kitchen to reiterate that my dishes should be made without fish sauce.

My drunken noodles was good, but I can definitely make it better myself. The Lad Na was really not good. It just tastes like watered down dark soy sauce.

To boots, no entres was less than $15

Pros: Drunken Noodles was tasty, Knew what could be made vegan.

Cons: Expensive, One of the dishes I had was just not good.

I went to this restaurant and I asked the server that if they have vegan options. They told me that they can make the whole menu vegan. But then I asked how the sauces are made with the dishes. They told me just about all the dishes has fish and oyster sauce in it. So you really have to be carful eating here. I ended up just leaving because they do not know the true meaning of the word vegan and vegetarian. And to add on this review, this is just about most of South Florida Thai restaurants . You really have to asked a lot lot questions when ordering at these restaurants.

Veggie option in a veritable veggie food desert.

My husband and I order delivery from here once in a while. It's not the best vegetarian Thai food I've had and it's overpriced (two entrees, no additions, cost us $50)... but this area is tricky for vegetarians so... It is what it is! For an example, if you order a tofu curry, there are scarcely any vegetables added -- basically just tofu and curry. Kind of weird, in my experience. The restaurant itself is cute. We went there once.

Cons: Expensive, Stingy with veggies

Good dinner

I will start with - we had a wonderful dinner.
But - beware. Not a lot of their dishes are vegetarian. It's not as easy as substituting tofu for the meat.
Our server was knowledgeable, so we felt comfortable.
When we told her we were vegan, she said "no egg or fish sauce either, right?" When we eat Thai, we usually get a curry and a pad thai.
All of the curries have fish sauce. The pad thai has fish sauce. She pointed us to a few dishes that they could make us. We had a noodle dish and vegetable fried rice without egg. We had veggie sushi and it was so good!
We were very happy with our experience, but don't go into it thinking you'll have a lot of items to choose from.

Pros: knowledgeable and friendly staff, chili sauce

Cons: limited selection for vegetarians

Fresh & Delicious

Plenty of veg and vegan options, we loved our meals and will be returning often to this small and friendly restaurant. Easy access, easy parking, uncongested area of the beach. Delicious fresh well prepared ingredients, cozy place, no fanfare. Loved it.

Pros: Vegan Options, Well Prepared, Easy Access
