Lived in Huddersfield for 5 years for uni and managed to never find this place, which is an absolute shame as it was bloody lovely! The inside is super nice, the staff were very friendly and the food is incredible. I chose the vegetables Thai green and mushrooms satay to start, highly recommend both. Everything was cooked perfectly, fresh and full of flavour

Pros: Incredible food , Service was great , Reasonably priced

Lovely food !

There were plenty of vegan options alongside the omni foods. There was a separate menu for vegan/vegetarian too so made it simpler to make our choices. The staff are super helpful and efficient.

Pros: Vegan options listed separately on the menu , Delicious food, Reasonable prices for food and drink

Thai Sakon never disappoints

This is a regular favourite for us with plenty of vegan options. The menus are well- labelled and the staff extremely helpful. Let them know that you’re vegan and they’ll point out precisely what choices are suitable. The staff always offer vegan ‘prawn crackers’ at the beginning of the meal. The tofu is absolutely amazing. My non-vegan friend always opts for the tofu as it’s so delicious! The veg is so fresh and cooked to perfection and the spices beautifully balanced. We have never been disappointed and the price is very affordable especially for the quality of the dishes on offer.

Great vegan option

Staff were very helpful when I was the only vegan out of a party of 20. They took care to serve me the vegan options and not get any dishes mixed up on the table. They even gave me the option to swap tofu for extra veg and visa versus which was nice. Limited vegan options but it makes up for it in the quality and flavour of the food. Can definitely recommend

Pros: Incredibly tasty food, Reasonable prices, Accommodating staff

Cons: Limited vegan menu

I'd rate this as 5 stars if I could. We come here regularly as the food is delicious. Loads of vegan options and never disappoints. It's even better that they happily hosted us for our wedding meal last weekend😄

Always excited to revisit

As the only vegans in our family, this is such a wonderful place to eat for us all. They have lots of vegan options and are always happy to accommodate us. They even started offering pumpkin crackers to those who can't eat prawn crackers. We've been dining here at least a few times a month for a few years now and the food is always delicious and the service always superb. :)

Pros: Knowledgeable about veganism, Lovely locale

great choice, great food

Nearly all the vegetarian options are vegan. It would be great if the menu specified which ones are vegan but still, this is a great choice for vegans. We ate from the early bird menu which had great selection. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious.

Excellent vegan options

Went for the early bird. Explained I was vegan and the gentleman pointed out the dishes in the veggie section I couldn't have. Think there were only 2 on the whole page.
Had a stir fry involving tofu which was beautiful. Have since had takeaway a couple of times.
They also brought out pumpkin crackers for me while my friends had the prawn crackers. Service was fantastic. It always is. Never had a bad meal here.

Pros: Loads of really tasty vegan options , Pumpkin crackers , Fantastic service

Cons: Not the cheapest if not on the early bird
