Really delicious food for a fair price - you can choose between one plate or ‘all you can eat’ - tasty and authentic
Today it’s brown rice and naan with a choice of two veggie curries, lentil soup and salad

It’s like a tiny india in Koh Phangan. The people are really kind. Theres a buffet and you can get a large portion cause the plates are huge. Food is tasty and they offer some typical indian deserts and drinks

Very tasty buffet with half a dozen dishes. Healthy, clean food. Pleasant Kirtan music and bhajans play in a relaxed environment. Kombucha is very tasty too.

For 150B, you’ll get a huge tray and you will be full.
I had brown/ purple rice, taro stiffly, califlour curry stir fly, red beans, cucumber chutney, and papadam.

I've stayed on K.P. for over 2 years and found this place back in Oct. 2017. At that time I ate here twice a week. The plate was 100 b. which was a bit pricey, but tolerable. Oftentimes some of the food was leftovers from the previous day, but I didn't complain. The prices were raised to 150 b. in Jan. of this year (the same price as other establishments who offer a same "buffet"). Their reason was an increase in produce. I live here, buy groceries every other day and would disagree with this reasoning. Yes, you do get a nice size plate, but I find the price to be a high for lentils, rice, spices, and vegetables (these are some of the cheapest ingredients on the island). I don't agree with having to pay exorbitant costs for basic, healthy food. Sad, but very common in this part of the island.

Thanks for the constructive review.
We do our best to serve high quality food for a fair price.
We use more expensive products in our cooking. We use only Himalayan salt, coconut oil, fresh herbs and spices (that many times we need to buy outside of the island). This make the price reasonable in our view.
Now we also offer a medium size plate for 100 THB for ones who are on a budget.
