Very good local food

They don't have everything that's on the menu. The veggie curry was perfect. Very nice environment. Nice stop on the cross island road, recommended.

Stunning Food - best in Samoa

The owners of Tiapapata Art Centre have developed an amazing menu here at this oasis in Samoa - this was by far the best food I ate during 10 days on the island. The majority of the menu is vegan, with only a few menu items offering fish. The curry tasting plate (3 vegan curries with rice and a green-leaf chapati) is particularly recommended - try the Jackfruit, green beans, and pineapple curries and daal! Also delicious is the turmeric drink and fresh lemongrass tea. Definitely talk to Wendy, the owner, to get an idea about the vegan thinking behind the cafe, it's very interesting! Also available is a little cookbook so you can make the curries at home😄
