“a hidden gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Tucked away in a corner of Banyans, Living Juices is a saviour for those needing a good detox or just a lovely refreshing juice or home-made snack. All the staff are lovely, especially Mel who is full of such enthusiasm and never too busy to help with any query. The range of juices and smoothies they offer is vast and all delicious! If you go here make sure you also try their amazing home-made snacks or breakfasts. Their home-made hummus and beetroot pate with crudités is especially tasty!!

“The best fruit salad by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

The juices and smoothies are great and very healthy, however quite expensive compared to the juices on the street! The staff are lovely and everything is fresh. The fruit salad is worth every penny and is such a wonderful way to start the day. It all takes a while to prepare so don't go if you're in a rush but it is well worth the wait!

“Raw,healthy,organic-Living juices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Was soooo happy when I found this place-with green smoothies and healthy snacks and lovely banana bread with different heavenly spreads to have with it. I also did the 3days detox with green juices which was excellent and very prof.
We where a bunch of different people who hanged there and you did get new experiences every time. Go there if you're into a healthier way of living.<3

“Fantastic - a little juice heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

This place is flat out fantastic! The owner and the staff are all lovely and super friendly! We has two mega juices and several extras (peanut bars, fruit salads - which happen to be the best I've had with loads of seeds and coconut - and almonds) and all of them were lovely. Especially for my vegan sweet toothed boyfriend the peanut butter chocolate shake was like a healthy chocolate bar! Amazing :)

Also if you want it to takeaway bring a bottle or you'll be given a recycled one, not a problem at all they're clean but some people seem to have a problem with it (in my opinion if you're the type of person to drink green juice, you should probably be into recycling!)

Only downsides (and I really do have to be picky to find any!)

1. It's next to the Crossfit gym/bar which isn't a problem (we go to Crossfit so it was actually good for us) but for vegans the smell of cooking bacon isn't exactly appetizing for vegans, but nothing to be done about it!

2. There is only one juicer and it's a slow one (to extract enzymes properly and live) but it does mean if there is a lot of people you can be in for a wait - but it's totally worth it to have the healthiest juice possible and we were warned of this when we ordered.

3. It's a little on the expensive side, but the ingredients are great and specialist and if you sit and watch the ingredients that go in (the sheer amount of veg is amazing) then you'll see you're getting your money's worth - none of the street 'fruit shakes aka sugar and puree' are anything like these juices.

10/10 will be returning to Koh Tao and will 100% be visiting here!
