It's a little bit more expensive than the average Thai restaurant but you're getting raw, high protein, low fat foods that are way better for you, plus you get brown rice instead of bleached rice. I had the massaman curry with mushrooms, very nice &...a berries smoothy. Perfect hangover food 😁😅More

I was staying at Mangosteen resort which is about 300 metres away. I am not a vegetarian type of person, but I found the menu here was delicious. I primarily came for the coffee which I found to be the best in Phuket, and my...wife and I came here nearly every day during our stay. Staff are great and the food is very fresh. I would recommended that you drop in if you are in this area.More

Listen, I appreciate a relaxed atmosphere. But a homesick Russian lady making repeated video calls home - in an almost empty cafe so that I felt I was part of the conversation (I don't speak Russian)? And a truly annoying, yapping, over-bred Pomeranian? Not cute....Not cute at all. The food is pricy. My fat "burrito" of salad leaves, carrots, a salsa and some really very good sauces cost 260 THB. At a guess double what it should cost. The Som Tam was nice and juicy (100 THB). Previously I had a burger, just to see what a raw burger is like - 3 saucer-sized slabs of dried grain-and-veg mixes with lettuce, tomato and sauces. It was weird and dry, but not bad. If you absolutely have to, by all means. But there are better options close by for vegans, vegetarians or just the culinary curious.More

We enjoyed the food in Atsumi Raw Food Cafe and Vegan Bistro so much that we ate there twice on the same day! The owner Anna is passionate about healthy eating and the role of food in healing bodies and minds. She clearly has a...lot of knowledge from running Healing Retreats over the last 15 years. The food was freshly prepared and served with a smile in a relaxed environment. We will be going back to try some more dishes.More

I came here two years ago and reviewed it passionately as the best restaurant I’ve ever been to. I don’t know if they lost their chef or changed their recipes, or are cutting costs, but the three times I came here on this last trip,...every single thing I ordered was bland, and mediocre The burrito used to be overflowing with flavor and fillings. I would Moan while I ate it. Now it’s literally just a bunch of lettuce stuffed into a wrap, with a laughable amount of fillings. No texture. No flavor. They should call it a shredded lettuce wrap. I had been raving about the burrito to my friend for weeks in anticipation of eating it again and I was embarrassed when we both ordered one and got nothing but a lettuce And a few specks Of flavorless walnut meat. Two years ago I had gotten the Tom yum soup and was obsessed with the flavors; the textures, i am a Tom yum officianado and I have Eaten it at a hundred restaurants. The one here used to be my favorite in the whole world, but now thanks to their new chef, it is just watery , with no flavor, and barely cooked vegetables. What a disappointment. We kept coming back over and over because we are passionate about organic food and we wanted to try everything on the menu and pray that maybe something would be good. Every visit we just left disappointed . I couldn’t believe it. I even had to go back and read my old review just to make sure this was the same restaurant The one thing that was still good on the menu was the papaya salad. That was amazing 2 years ago, and it still amazing now. One of The main reasons I came back to Phuket was to eat at this restaurant again, seriously!! ... so I was really depressed to find that their new chef is so terrible with flavor and texture, and has ruined the genius of what used to be the best restaurant ever. If the owner reads this - bring back your chef and your recipes from 2 years ago and fire your new chef! And please put more “meat” and fillings in your burrito, the shredded lettuce as filler made us want a refund. I beg you to restore this place to its former glory .:: it used to be so good...More

Atsumi Raw became our go-to for lunch and dinner in Rawai. Employee named Fai was extremely kind to us during our times dining at the restaurant, and even gave us some local suggestions on things to do around town. The smoothies are phenomenal, and their...take on a raw Pad Thai is a must. Slightly higher prices than some of the local spots, but for the quality and selection, it is worth it for visitors looking for hearty vegan options. We sat inside most stays, but there is a beautiful outdoor settings suitable for larger groups (with AC). By far some of the freshest food I've tasted, especially the watermelon used in their shakes!More

We had a delicious smoothie and juice. We followed these up with an ice coffee and latte both of which were very good. There’s an nice new air conditioned cafe at the front and then a lovely outdoor garden restaurant at the back.
