“An oasis of healthiness in Koh Tao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Healthy fresh juices and smoothies, with every super food you could want, such as bee pollen, spirulina, chia seeds, etc. to add-in. Also, raw chocolates and homemade raw energy bars. They have a single-augur masticating juicer, which at least in the states, you can’t get made to order fresh juice from, they take a little bit longer so most juice bars use the masticating juicers at night and sell those juices bottled. It really doesn’t take that long. The fresh juices at Living Juices take less time to make than my favorite juice bar in Chicago’s centrifugal juicer. My only complaint is living juices isn’t open past 12:30pm or 1:30pm (I never was sure when they closed…) and they are closed on Sundays. But they are open around 6:30am, so if you’re like me and sometimes wake up with the sun for no reason, it’s perfect, haha.

Dear Lyzse, thank you for your positive feedback and lovely comments. We have specifically chosen to not use a high speed juicer but a masticating one as the juice is of a much higher quality. As you mentioned, it sometimes might take longer but that is the time we wait to get quality served. We are happy that you enjoyed that little aspect of our philosophy as well as our snacks. Regarding our opening times, our landlord does not allow us to open past 13.30 which is a shame, and we apologize for that. Thanks once again for coming in and we hope to see you back again.

“Nice for meeting your veggie quota on holiday!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Great, fresh ingredients for a quick fresh juice or smoothie. A nice find to supplement all the heavy, meat centric meals.

“Really good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

My favorite tradition after a party night! The juices are delicious, the vibe is chilled and friendly. Always a good place to slow down for a little bit and take care of yourself. And when I do, my body says thanks all day long :)

“Not for me!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My husband loved the juices. I think the organic choco and bars they have are better. I like healthy juices but they cud taste good too. Mine I just could not finish though he tried to rectify it for me by adding some more stuff..i think it was too much fiber for my tummy to handle and I didn't wanna get sick so I left it.

Dear PayalK101, thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. I am very sorry to hear that you didn't fully enjoy your juice at Living Juices but am happy to read that you believe our homemade snacks are good.

I remember serving you and your husband who also came in the day before. When you asked me for advice on which juice to pick, you told me that you are an 'experienced juicer' and you love veggie juices. Unfortunately I don't have any control over your choice and regret to see that you picked the wrong juice (which also happens to be our most popular juice). As you stated correctly, I tried to add some more pineapple juice to your juice as it seemed too green for you and you said you enjoyed the 'new' taste which made me believe we found a solution for you.

Upon leaving you left some juice and I asked you if it was all ok and if you wanted this for take away but you told me that you were full but enjoyed it nonetheless. I am sorry to now read that you didn't feel well as I would not have hesitated a moment to replace your juice with a more fruitier version.

Our aim is to have everyone leave the premises with a smile which you and your husband did. Unfortunately I can't do anything anymore and wish you had told me while you were still at our bar. As you have now left the island I can only hope that you will come back one day and I can make your day with a suitable juice as we try for everyone else visiting Living Juices ;-)

Thank you once again and it was a pleasure serving you.
