We are coming to the end of our week on Koh Samui and have visited PRAVA three times so far (expecting to come again tomorrow) - twice for dinner and once for breakfast. All food and drinks (be sure to try the delicious smoothies, juices and cocktails) have been fantastic, accompanied by wonderful, friendly staff. The menu features lots of vegetarian friendly western dishes (falafels etc) as well as Thai classics (yellow, red and green curries, pad thai, massaman, plus lots more) which you select and then say either vegetables, fish or meat.
The breakfasts are healthy and light but also filling, we had the coconut oats and Bircher which kept us going all day.
Be sure to visit, you won't be disappointed.

Well the romantic story behind prava everybody can read on the last page of the card in the restaurant. For this review, however, it's worthwhile to mention that Lilly perfectly knows what is happening in her kitchen. This is thanks to her experience running a fine cuisine restaurant back in New Orleans. The offered dishes are hand picked by her and her husband Wat. We had a dish crab cake with double baked potato and a yellow curry. Not knowing what this crab cake could be my girlfriend took the opportunity to get know what it is. This was the moment when we met Lilly. Her description was so vivid as it is a dish from her hometown and one she loves since her childhood. Both dishes were amazing. My girlfriend was after that actually satisfied. Despite that I proposed to try a dessert. Just this moment a waiter delivered two cupcakes which convinced my girlfriend to give a dessert a try. We ordered a mango coco panna cotta. Also this was just delicious. One could argue that Prava is too aggressive with its requests for reviews here on TripAdvisor. But this argument can't hold once you try the food there. They claim they use fresh ingredients from local providers and high quality ingredients. This is certainly hard to review. As for me I simply liked the dishes. And I certainly can confirm that they use for their slowly blended fruit shakes real fruits! This you can feel and taste. For those who chose to not have palm oil in their dishes this place is certainly good to keep in mind. We unfortunately gave this place a try on our last day on Koh Samui. But as one can read here and we heard from other customers in this place people return here. I highly recommend to give Prava a shot as this is an opportunity to dine in a small cute restaurant run by a lovely couple with a romantic story behind that is actually so much haute cuisine.

We really liked the fresh juices, which were 100% made from fresh fruit (non sugar or anything else added). Also the food tasted excellent, so that we came back several times during our stay. It is not easy to find good vegetarian or vegan cuisine in Thailand, but this place really got us. You also will get a small, delicious desert for free.
