Vegan / Vegetarian / Organic / Wholefood / Raw Food

Srithanu over the last few years has become a centre for specialised diets, especially for people who want to eat healthy. A holistic approach is espoused by several cafes and restaurants as well as by the yoga and detox centres in the area. They believe that eating should be part of a wider effort to improve, to transform and to improve spiritually.


Trying to maintain a list of all the bars and restaurants in an area is a venture fraught with difficulty. Places open and close regularly. Just as regularly they change ownership and undergo a change of name, direction and often quality.

Another issue is with the nature of ratings. Owners groom potential reviewers with freebies; opinions about food, drink and ambience are subjective and sometimes just too glowing or too spiteful to be believed.

Better far, is the old fashion system of finding places to eat and drink of your own accord or by following the advice of a fellow friendly traveller. Koh Phangan is a fun place and ridiculously laid back. You are bound to have memorable meals and awesome nights out by just opening up to the possibilities of the island.

2020 Update - The list below now includes several outlets that are marked as closed. We are in the middle of a pandemic the likes of which has not be witnessed for a 100 years. The closure of borders, and the fear of infection has had a massive impact on the local economy of Koh Phangan. As we have seen around the world, landlords continue to demand payment of rent despite trade being reduced to a trickle. Many of the restaurants, bars and cafes below will inevitably go out of business or change hands. Although these are uncertain times, it is hoped that post covid-19 restaurants etc. will start to flourish again in Koh Phangan and the advances made in terms of choice, quality of ingredients, presentation and culinary skill in food and drink outlets on the west coast of Koh Phangan will continue unabated.
