Adults only. Only in the evening - Edit

We went as a family for breakfast only to find out that it opens only in the evening from 5:30PM. The signboard also said "Adults Only". I do understand the need for places which are not having screaming children, but it felt sad to miss out on the well rated restaurant because we have a 5 year old.

My rating of needs improvement is not for food, but only for the above two factors.

Pros: No idea, as we did not get to eat there

Cons: Only in the evening, For Adults only

vegan cooking class - Edit

I loved everything around there. Phad Thai, stir fried morning glory, Thailand in one bite :). Furthermore, I love that everything they earn over there is for the welfare center. If it was possible to give 5 stars, I would :).

Date night - Edit

Save this one for a special occasion. It's a bit pricey. Although maybe that's just the cheaper traveller in me talking.
I'll note now all profits go to fund Lanta Animal Welfare which is a dog and cat rescue and re homing program that they run. Also worth a visit and if you have time can volunteer.

There is a separate vegan/vegetarian menu which is a 6 course tasting menu which alternates daily. It's $480. The foods great! worth the money. It's not fast Thai food. It's Quality.

I had a great night, I wouldn't return just because I'd like to stretch my Baht as far as possible and there is great cheaper food on the island.

Pros: Food was 10/10

Cons: Expensive

Try the tasting menu at least once - good value! - Edit

I´ve been here several times on years 2014, 2015 and 2016 and I want to update my review. Ask for a vegetarian menu, so you will see what is on today´s list. The menu is different every day, 6 days a week (closed on Sundays).

Time for Lime has the best food on the island and there´s no other place like this anywhere. The Thai fusion food is so good! When you stay in Thailand for long you get bored to same curries and pad thais. Time for Lime has some dishes that you won´t find anywhere else, but still the foods tastes very Thai.

And the best thing about Time for Lime is that the owner donates the profits to Lanta Animal Welfare rescue center that she has founded.

On quiet low season you usually can order just one portion of food, so you can choose one dish from the tasting menu. On busy high season you probably need to order the whole tasting menu, but you should try that at least once during your stay! Last time in August 2016 I had it three times during a week.

My favourite food here is fried sweet potato with Thai herb salad, Time for Lime pumpkin soup, the curries and pepper leaf wraps. Some friends have loved their spring rolls, so they are good too. Then we had some paprika with balsamic vinegar spicy sauce, that was unusual and good.

The tasting menu could be eg. this
1. tofu-cashewnut-vegetable sauce with rice - nice smokey flavour
2. tofu and taro-kind of vegetable rolled inside pepper leaf - okay, had not had pepper leaf before
3. massaman curry with rice - great! And quaranteed no fish sauce or shrimp paste in the currypaste
4. fried onion rings - good, a bit usual dish, but good
5. coconut soup with thai herbs - good
6. watermelon and pineaple - it would have been great to get something more special for vegans

During my stay at Time for Lime´s bungalows I had cocktails at the bar now and then. I tried
* lemongrass margarita - tasty, I usually don´t like margaritas
* mojito - well made (the same can not be said about most other beach bars in Thailand)
* amaretto sour - great, I hadn´t had this before and this became my new favourite

I´ve done the cooking course twice and it is easy to do it vegan. I have been in May Kaidee´s vegetarian cooking school in Bangkok and I was glad that I took this in Time for Lime because I learned new things about thai cooking (also on the second time). And I made such a good food at the cooking class!

Must see when in Koh Lanta! - Edit

Fantastic place, right on the beach, the owner seems to have a lot of love for details. Best (thai) food I've had! Definitely try the tasting menu - it's worth the money in every way. Great cooking classes. Also pay Koh Lanta Animal Welfare a visit, they do an amazing job - kind of a must for vegans and animal lovers, isn't it ;)

Pros: great food, supports Koh Lanta Animal Welfare, interior

Great Soup! - Edit

We dropped by here late in the evening and ordered the Time for Lime signature soup in a vegan version. It was probably the best soup I've ever had, a must try if you're here on a thursday.

They have a changing menu for every day, the tasting menue is really expensive in my view (450 B). The place is cozy but you must like cats as they are basically everywhere.

The profits of this place go to the Ko Lanta Sanctuary, a welfare organisation the owner of Time for Lime build by herself. It's something that really annoys me because in the menue you can see quotes of her saying how she loves animals but we all know this is the old story of hypocrisy itself. Why do they serve chicken, beef and sealife? I dont get it.

Pros: Time for lime soup is the best

Cons: Owner is really fake, Serves meat although linked to animal welfare

Tasting Menu - Edit

This place is great, right on the beach and it's a super pretty spot especially at nightfall. We had the veganised vegetarian tasting menu which, although on the pricey side, was really good. The only disappointment was that the dessert was just fruit so I'd like to see them step up their game here. The cocktails really are as good as they say they are and at happy hour you can show up and eat their amazing spring rolls whilst sipping a cocktail in a deckchair on the sand.

Profits to go support the amazing Lanta Animal Welfare so it's definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Amazing Spring Rolls, Supports an Animal Sanctuary, Vegan tasting menu

Cons: Expensive
