Description: International vegetarian kitchen, j or vegan. Many specialities like for example, original Italian vegetarian seafood pizza or risotto con fungi or saffron. New are Swiss Rosti and pancakes different styles. Indonesian Tempe can be ordered as sate, in some curries as well as in pasta and spaghetti. We banned white sugar and use brown sugar very careful. Beside soy bean oil for cooking we use pure coconut oil for frying and original Italian olive oil for the salads. Monosodium glutamate (MSG), sodium benzoate, artificial colouring, high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, trans fats or other chemicals are ***not*** to be found in our kitchen. As all vegetables are from the same day’s market we don't have to cover with extreme spice. We serve moderate spicy and put fresh chilli on the table. If you like more, let us know, we categorized in chillies from zero to five. You will not find: garlic and onions. Pre order and door to door service from 11 am to 11:00 pm, daily. The restaurant exists since over twenty years; the ambience has switched to European style, white and clean.

I could be a vegetarian if food like this was available on more locations. I tried fresh and deep fried springrolls and Masaman with mushroom. If I didn't know it was big mushrooms I could swear it was meat :)
The owner and staff performed very professional. As a bonus I got some lessons in different rice and how they effect your body. Black and red rice is the way to go :)

Vegetarian and vegan alone isn't really healthy when it comes with a lot of refined sugar and cheap oils. Then better eat non-veg with high quality ingredients. For us it's important that our guests understand what they eat but we don't want to be missionary.
Thank you for your kind comment, we hope to see you again.

My family and I joined a friend for dinner tonight at this restaurant. We are not vegetarians but absolutely loved the food. Tasty and good size portions. Our kids, 8 & 7, had the burgers and they finished the plate in no time... The ice cream was sensational... Prices are more than reasonable, in fact they are very cheap. It was a nice enough experience especially when the owner took the time to talk to us about the food and how it is all cooked. It is obvious he loves what he does and takes an interest in the customer and the service. We will be back many more times...

To have guests like you makes us proud. I think, your business with the power plate makes you sensitive about your body anyhow and our dishes are nearly a must for body sensitive persons, even they are not vegetarians.
For the nice comment we give you a warm and big "Thank you very much" and await your next visit.

A wonderful atmosphere and the highest quality of vegetarian restaurant in Pattaya. Bruno the Austrian owner was very hospitable and gave an expert introduction of all the special dishes in the menu. I highly recommend the restaurant and defiantly will return over and over again.

We ordered rice with green curry, fresh spring roll and Indian curry. The green curry is so yummy and spring roll is a great appetiser...But they still can't beat the super delicious Indian curry. It is a great mix of sweaty potatoes, beans...The owner is really friendly and attentive. Her nephew is very good at English and knows his job. Lastly, vegan ice cream is a guilty pleasure. Kiwi and passion fruit flavours are a must to try. We'll go back again on our next visit to Pattaya.

I am not vegetarian nor vegan although its true Im looking sometimes for some alternative way of eating. The food there was indeed healthy and the service was good. I just expected the food to be tastier than this, since its ranked as the 2nd best place to eat in Pattaya. I understand that the taste without adding sugar, any meat and so on, should be different. but it should normally be compensated by the using of organic and mature fruits/vegetables thus with natural better taste. But there it was not the case. Just my opinion though.

It's seldom enough, we get a not so nice review and we didn't have only one who complained the taste.
As we don't use MSG to increase the taste nor other chemicals it might have been not enough tasty for you.
We would have wished, you would have told us at your visit in our restaurant. We wouldn't have charged you for the dish as we only take money from satisfied customers.
