Delicious sorbets

The vegan flavours are mostly sorbets , when we went there were a couple extras such as chocolate, banana and coconut or rice. Really delicious though and all vegan flavours are marked vegan which makes it easy. 79baht for one scoop in a cup.

Cool spot!

Stumbled upon this place at just the right time! It’s hot in Phuket and this was the perfect snack for a pick me up. I got the chocolate and the dok kha rice, bc I will always pick something I haven’t tried before. Super yum.

Great Ice Cream & Many Options!

Was just walking by on the street and popped in to see if they had any dairy free options, and they had over 10 very clearly labeled vegan options! Ended up getting the raspberry lemonade and it was very refreshing. Didn’t bother asking is the cones were vegan and just got it in a cup

Coconut 🥥 💛

Always grateful for vegan ice cream options. The coconut flavour was good but the staff are what made me want to write the review. Genuinely nice and helpful. Thank you 🙏

Pretty small variety for vegans, some weren't available.

The vegan variety consists of mostly fruit based sorbets and a few cashew milk based flavors like vegan chocolate that weren't available except for coconut coconut-banana.
I tried the coconut banana twice because I'm more into creamy, milky flavors than sorbets, and it was ok - pretty weak taste for two ingredients with such dominant flavor. Also tried the blue lemonade which could've been nice if it wasn't too sour and quite bitter while barely having any sweetness.
Also, the cones are *not vegan* since they contain eggs, so you can only get a cup, which is both not vegan friendly nor environmentally friendly.
The staff was very kind.

Pros: Medium quantity of sorbets, A few cashew milk based flavors , Nice staff

Cons: Didn't have most of the cashew milk based flavors, Flavors are mediocre

Refreshing sorbets!!

I've been to the branch of Thaivetro in Bangkok so this was obviously a similar experience.

Cool store in the heart of Phuket old town very close to the Sunday Market. They have some seats inside if you want to eat in. Had mine whilst walking around the market which is a must if you're in town on a Sunday afternoon / evening!

They are constantly changing flavours so you never know what will be on offer when you arrive.
On this occasion it was mainly sorbets which I was pretty happy with as I needed something refreshing.
It was everything I would want from a sorbet so definitely happy!

I would go back for sure, thumbs up from me! 👍

Decent but overpriced

Had 1 scoop of the vegan chocolate for 89 baht. It tasted fine (a bit lacking in flavour and sweetness) but definitely didn't warrant the price tag.

The cones contain egg and are not suitable for vegans.

Just scoops available for vegans

There are flavor of the month, purple sweet potato, chocolate, coconut and almond plus the sorbet flavours for vegans. I ordered the passion fruit and actually it was really nice but overpriced taking into account Thailand prices (mostly double price that my lunch).

Pros: In Phuket Old Town, English speaking staff.

Cons: 79 TBH one scoop, 129 for 2 and 179 for three., No vegan cones., No reusable scoop containers even having in place.

Good vegan options!

They have several different sorbet flavours, all of which are suitable for vegans.
They also had two vegan almond milk ice cream options, Chocolate and Thai Tea.
Both are creamy, true to flavour and delicious!
These are clearly marked with a big green Vegan on the labels inside the display cabinet.
Serving size is plenty big enough.
Service was super friendly and welcoming, they are happy to offer samples of flavours and answer questions. Staff speak good English.
The ‘cups’ we received were actually little woven boats with a banana leaf in. Cute and biodegradable! (Plastic spoon though)
The have a free drinking water station with stainless cups inside the shop as well.

The almond milk ice cream is delicious but only available at the veg festival

We went there at the vegetarian festival at October and had the chance to try their almond milk ice cream, it’s very delicious but they said it is available for only that week...nice to try :)

Only sorbet for vegans

I got the strawberry sorbet, it was good, but the come was meh (I usually love cones!) Also, the vegan options were limited to the sorbets. They said that they only had chocolate almond ice cream in October. 😢

Pros: Good service , Excellent sorbet , Fair price for product

Cons: Lacking vegan options, Cone tasted kind of stale

Less options that I expected

Went in and there was only fruity sorbet flavours and no chocolate almond, sweet potato, etc that I was hoping for from the happy cow description. There was lots of choice for sorbets but it wasn’t what we fancied. Staff understood what vegan was and pointed us to the sorbets though

The best ice cream in the Town

A lot of unusual ice cream - wasabi, tom yam, beer... And few sorbets.
