Totally overpriced - Edit

We've been here for a few times. Last time was yesterday, with their new menu. First of all, prices are *much* above other veg/veg-friendly places here on Koh Samui. Salads & main dishes start at 290 baht, smoothies — 180 baht. Regular prices are 2-3 times lower, and you can find not a bad food for this.

Second, I've ordered Mediterranean Plate and it was the worst hummus I'd ever had on Samui (comparing to 5 other places on the island), tasteless falafels, no feeling of good/healthy food afterall. (Firstly, I wanted to have Burrito with avocado but they told they had no avocado… but served avocado to my wife in her Asian Bowl…) My wife's impression of her meal wasn't quite high as well.

The last thing I want to tell owners: having alcohol drinks in a yoga place is *ridiculous*. Even having fish/seafood is at least strange… but alcohol — nothing to dispute here.

Pros: great view, unique meals

Cons: prices, not delicious for that price, nothing in common with yoga

Great dinner buffet. Almost all vegetarian. Higher end prices. - Edit

My wife and I had a great dinner buffet there. We arrived near the buffet start at 630. All but one of the options were vegetarian friendly, which was great. Ate to our hearts content, and then some more when the fresh fruit platter was put out for dessert. The chick peas - steamed and lightly seasoned were out of this world. Dinner buffet was at 450baht per person.

Pros: Yummy salads. Clean food. Great setting overlookin

Best in Samui - Edit

This was the best find while in Samui. They offer a buffet which is mostly for yoga students, but outsiders are also welcome. The food I had was fresh and perfectly spiced. They use many organic ingredient, and offer herbal tea. Definitely worth trying if you're on Samui. Call first to confirm opening times, etc.

Pros: great food, nice people, beautiful space

Great place - Edit

Plenty of the diners were on fasting programmes so there was plenty of chat about eating issues. The menu has an extensive raw food range, but plenty of cooked food too. It was all tasty and good value. Also a huge range of healthy fruit drinks.

The location is fantastic; right on the beach. It's not too expensive and there's a pub across the road if you want to combine it with a slightly less 'zen' premier league game!

Pros: Tasty food, Large and varied menu, Location

Cons: also serves fish

Very nice - Edit

Very nice setting, with a great view overlooking the blue waters and cliff below. Thorough raw and vegan-friendly options and I got the impression you can veganize just about anything. A bit expensive at around 200-300 baht per entree. I had a vegan burrito that was absolutely delicious. My husband had green curry and steamed rice that had nice spicing. Great little spot and a welcome relief from the unhealthy and cookie cutter fair in nearby Lamai.

what a haven! - Edit

Excellent organic, heavily veg based menu and buffets. raw vegan options. All real, whole foods. I was having food allergy issues at another resort, the VIkasa staff came right over and picked me up, moved my stuff, worked with me to get my food issues under control! Very helpful and knowledgable. Just expanded their raw menu offerings, the menu was created by several world renown chefs and the owner, Costa. Also excellent yoga classes, nice ambiance in the restaurant, nice feel to the resort, beautiful views from the cliff side rooms. I have stayed here 3 times now and consider it my Koh Samui base.
