I was excited at the prospect of having a vegetarian meal at Amala, but upon arriving I found that they were no longer in business. The new restaurant had a Lebanese menu. I checked out the new menu, but didn't see anything that I wanted. If Amala opens up in a different location, i hope someone will post it.

This restaurant was located right on the beach front, which was a really romatic and quiet spot. It had a real luxury feel to it, which wasn't reflected in the cost! The restaurant was also empty, so we had fantastic service and the evening was extremely relaxing. The menu has alot of choice, from western and thai dishes to smaller tapas sharing dishes with some delicious tofu based options. One of the thai currys we ordered very very hot, but if you like food eye-wateringly spicy then this is the place to come, it certianly packed flavour! The presentation of the food was also lovely, and the deep fried vegetable tempura were the best I have tasted in the world!! The only thing that let this restaraunt down was the fact a few things we ordered weren't avaliable. No Gnocchi, no aubergine, or sorbet. Luckly there was lots of alternatives to chose from, but it is always disappointing. Despite this, the food itself was absolutely delicious, and a real haven for vegetarians & non vegetarians when visiting Koh Samui!

The tom yum soup was nice. The rice paper roll was fresh but a bit bland. The red and green curries were good. Highly recommended for vegetarians visiting the island as the location has great views of the beach.

Being a vegetarian, I was excited to hear about this all Vegetarian restaurant. Headed there on the second day of holiday (had to convince the husband) and was excited to see a great menu - all vegetarian! There is mexican, italian, thai and various soups and salads. Decided to order a phad thai, spring rolls and mexican wraps. The phad thai was okay, not a flavour burst but average. The spring rolls were filled with glass noodles and overall were bland. The mexican bean wrap was soooo bland and tasteless we ended up leaving it. The fries that came with it, were those crinkle cut frozen fries (by the looks and taste of them) again extremely disappointing.

Perhaps we ended up there on the wrong day, as other people seem to have rated it highly.

I can say the views are amazing.

Finding vegetarian food in Samui was a challenge compared to Chiang Mai and Bangkok.
Amala is wonderful! The menu is quite expansive and everything we got was very food. I would say that we enjoyed the Thai food better than the Western food here overall. The curry that we had was out of this world and the tempura was made perfectly.
Well worth the trip!
