A very nice restaurant. Such a treat to have lots of vegetarian/vegan options. Friendly service and delicious food. Am holding back on the extra star because I wish the restaurant had a wider range of soft drinks!

I was happy to return to this place after over a year. I'm not sure how the food has managed to improve from near perfection but it has. This place is what every city is missing: mid-range vegan menu in a more formal setting with...More

Some vegetarians (like me) don't mind "fake meat" but my wife hates it. Many dishes on the menu contain "fake meat" but some don't. I loved my Miam Kram ("five flavour finger food" - made with ginger, toasted coconut, lime, cashews, and a secret jelly...More

Amazing food.. have never had anything like it. Cannot believe it's veg. Even the meat eaters love it! So tasty. Costly, but worth it. If you're veg and plan to hit at least one restaurant in the city, definitely come here. Drinks are okay. Atmosphere...More
