Vegan Guide to Bangkok

Vegan Food Quest small banner logo

Updated March 2023

Here is our Vegan Guide to Bangkok, capital city in the ‘Land of Smiles’. It’s a bustling, busy, noisy, dirty, exciting, vibrant city of extremes; with culture, adventure, beauty and amazing vegan food right at your fingertips, our vegan guide to Bangkok will help you know where to look and make the very most of your visit. We love Bangkok and are always happy to visit because there are so many options for vegans in this huge Asian city, every cuisine seems to be represented here and there’s a great range of eateries meaning you can spend the time in between sightseeing enjoying tasty, vegan food.

With the vegan scene in Bangkok changing and growing so rapidly, it’s impossible for us to stay fully up to date with the latest openings and the best spots in town. So what better that to enlist the help of our friends at the excellent Root the Future, and also the HappyCow Ambassador for Bangkok HALENOMAD. It was lots of fun for us all to meet on our last trip to Bangkok, and we are very grateful for their vegan Bangkok insights! Read on to hear about their favourite vegan eateries in Bangkok, in addition to those that we have already featured.

Vegan Restaurants in Bangkok

The Earthling Cafe

Opening Hours: 10am-10.30pm every day (closed Monday)

The Earthling Cafe
Sukhumvit Soi 63
Bangkok 10110

Opening early 2022, The Earthling Cafe is another excellent addition to the vegan and plant based dining scene in Bangkok. Located on Sukhumvit Soi 63, just a 15 minute walk from Ekkamai BTS, the chilled vibe is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of central Bangkok. And the food? We were very impressed, the breakfast pancakes were served with a duo of sauces and topped with fruit, whilst the chicken burger came with a homemade slaw and Sriracha mayo. Both were excellent, as were the other dishes that our friends ordered, well worth a visit even if it’s a little away from the centre of town.

Eat.Co BKK

Opening Hours: 11.30am-9pm every day (closed Tuesday)

Eat.Co BKK
2nd Floor, 700 Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok 10110

”I kind of want everything on the menu” were the words that one of the Vegan Food Quest team uttered. That’s always a good sign, the menu reads very well so it’s probably not a surprise. Although when planning to eat at as many places as possible during our short Bangkok trip, it of course wasn’t possible. We were there for brunch so ordered ‘EGGSISTENTIAL CRISIS aka Tofu Scramble’ and ‘STEAKS ARE HIGH aka Cheesesteak Sandwich’ to share, which were both very good indeed and couldn’t be faulted. Also a side of teriyaki tempeh as you can never have enough tempeh. Our ‘So Matcha Better’ drink can only be described as a dessert in a glass, this rich, creamy and decadent matcha smoothie was oh so very good, it made us both very happy indeed. Having kept the people of Koh Phangan happy and very well fed for many years, it’s so good to have these guys in Bangkok. Excellent on every level and we can’t wait to return…

Tonklar Facai

Opening Hours: 7am-9pm every day

Tonklar Facai
Soi Ari 1

We hopped off the BTS at Ari en route to the airport to check out Tonklar Facai and we are very pleased that we made that decision. Excellent health focussed vegan and plant based options that looked beautiful and tasted delicious. These guys have another branch at Chula Hospital which serves a similar menu. Making that connection between health and wellness is something that we love, prevention (diet) is often better than the cure (drugs), we are what we eat. Tonklar Facai cook without oil and are plastic free too, keep up the good work, we can’t wait to return.

The Vegan Table

Opening Hours: 11am-11pm every day

The Vegan Table
Sukhumvit Soi 11
Bangkok 10110

The Vegan Table launched in Phuket back in 2018 and have recently opened on Sukhumvit 11 in Bangkok. This 100% vegan restaurant has won a number of awards and gained lots of fans since it launched, so it was only right that we checked it out. The menu is packed with wraps, burgers, pizzas and salads, they also have a selection of Thai favourites. We have tried the ‘chicken’ nuggets and the cauliflower bites (both served with vegan mayo and chilli sauce) and they were excellent. As was the apple crumble with cream which really hit the spot. But the vegan pizzas are next level and our favourite item on the menu. The Vegan Table is a great addition to the vegan scene in Bangkok.

Walee – Em Quartier

Opening Hours: 10am-10pm every day

Walee – Em Quartier
EM Quartier (Basement Level)
643 Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok 10110

We just love these simple vegan and veggie joints that you can find in most of the malls in Bangkok. Walee in Em Quartier is one of our favourites and it’s 100% vegan. Choose your choice of three dishes from the curries, stir fries and veggie options on display, and enjoy with with brown or white rice for just 50 baht. You really can’t beat that and we will never get bored of eating this style of Thai vegan food.

This newest addition to the vegan scene in Bangkok is seriously cool. We loved the design, we loved the layout and we loved the vibe. Oh, and we seriously loved the food too and can’t wait to return. We enjoyed nutrition packed smoothies and dishes the brunch menu; ‘The Game Changers’ burrito was next level deliciousness and ‘Shakalaka Shakshouka’ was just perfect. We will be visiting EVERY time we are back in Bangkok for sure…

Butter Me Up Bangkok

Opening Hours: Delivery Only

Butter Me Up Bangkok

We took a delivery from this producer of artisanal nut cheese and nut butter based in Bangkok. Normally, we pick up cashew cheese from our friends at Barefood and take back to Cambodia with us, but as they were currently closed, we checked out the opposition. Were we impressed? Yes, very, the cheese we purchased was of the highest quality and absolutely delicious. We tried the chilli herb and pistachio cranberry which were both excellent, our favourite being the pistachio cranberry. Looks like we have two favourite vegan cheese producers in Bangkok now!

Broccoli Revolution

Opening Hours: 9am-10pm every day (opens at 7am on Saturday and Sunday)

Broccoli Revolution
899 Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok 10110

The decor and design at Broccoli Revolution is modern and minimalistic and the food served is delicious and healthy which is a perfect combination in our opinion. We ate cake (of course) but also enjoyed a hearty burger on a charcoal bun, split pea fritters and delicious fried tempeh which made us want to head back to Indonesia on the next flight and spend every day eating as much tempeh as possible. They now have two other locations for you to visit, one in Central Embassy and the other in Bangrak, near to Saphan Taksin BTS.

May Veggie Home

Opening Hours: 10am-9pm every day

May Veggie Home
738 Sukhumvit 101 Alley
Khwaeng Bang Chak
Bangkok 10260

Since they moved, we’ve not been to the new location as it’s a little out of town, but we look forward to checking it out soon. You can enjoy Thai, Japanese or Western food (using tofu or mock meats) plus vegan cake and ‘Coco Much’ vegan ice cream when you visit May Veggie Home, the Penang curry is pretty special and we loved having the choice of brown rice. Another ‘must try dish’ is the stuffed avocado salad, both dishes are delicious and we’ve found ourselves ordering them regularly there. The atmosphere is relaxed and everything served is 100% vegan which makes it one of our Bangkok favourites, here’s a review from our one of our first visits to May Veggie Home.

Veganerie Concept

Opening Hours: 10am-10pm every day

Veganerie Concept
35/2 Soi Methiniwet (Sukhumvit24)
Behind Benjasiri Park
Bangkok 10110

Located behind Benjasiri Park and providing a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, Veganerie Concept was the second Veganerie location to open, it’s very different in many ways from the original location, but still fabulous. You can expect all of the delicious cakes and waffles that have kept us returning time after time, but Veganerie Concept also offers a full menu of vegan savoury dishes alongside the sweet creations that they’re well known for. Of course we had a waffle plate again but also opted for the full vegan breakfast which included a vegan muffin, vegan ‘bacon’, baked beans and vegan mayo, combined with the waffle plate this provided the perfect start to a long day exploring Bangkok.

Veganerie EmQuartier

Opening Hours: 10am-10pm every day

Veganerie EmQuartier
EmQuartier Mall
M Floor
637 Sukhumvit

OK, so you’re addicted to the sweet delights that the baking wizards create at Veganerie but are nowhere near their main locations? Luckily if you’re in the vicinity of the glitzy EmQuartier Mall there is now a small counter in the food hall fully stocked with all of your favourite Veganerie cakes and desserts, this is more of a take away option or a place to simply pick your favs and eat them right there on the spot.

Opening Hours: 10am-10pm every day

Emporium Food Hall
Emporium Mall
622 Sukhumvit Road

Talalask was one of our favourites for many years at their Central World location but sadly they closed when the food court was refurbished. You’ll be pleased to know that they now have a branch at Emporium Mall where you can enjoy a selection of Thai dishes featuring a variety of mock meats, rice, noodles and soups. We will be sure to check them out next time we’re in Bangkok but wanted to include it as we loved the original Talalask so much.

Veganerie Soul

Opening Hours: 10am-10pm every day

Veganerie Soul
Siam Paragon
Rama 9 Rd

By now you must realise we’re big fans of Veganerie and so it’ll come as no surprise that we’ve included their newest location in our vegan guide to Bangkok. Located in the food hall of Siam Paragon you can expect all of your Veganerie favourites alongside a decent selection of new savoury dishes. Of course we had another vegan waffle plate (it’s vegan law) but we also checked out a flavour packed dahl and paratha dish and tofu satay served on a bed of salad, everything was very good and this is another welcome addition to the ever growing vegan dining scene in Bangkok.

Rasayana Retreat

Opening Hours: 9am-9pm every day

Rasayana Retreat
57 Soi Prom-mitr
Sukhumvit 39
Bangkok 0110

This raw food restaurant does amazing things with fruits, nuts, seeds and vegetables. It’s well worth a visit for the raw vegan cake alone but the salads, Mexican taco cups, raw pizzas and spiralised vegetable spaghetti noodle dishes are definitely worth trying out too. The food is fresh, colourful, full of flavour and bursting with life, it’s the kind of place where the food actually makes you feel better after eating it. It’s also the kind of place where you’ll be amazed at what an be done with plant based, whole food ingredients (who knew raw vegan cake could taste this good?!). Check out this review from our first ever visit to Rasayana Retreat.

Root the Future Favourite Vegan Restaurants in Bangkok

Root the Future are Thailand’s largest plant-based & sustainability community, raising awareness about sustainability and plant-based food through passive activism, events, campaigns and content, whilst at the same time, making planet-friendly living, fun, delicious and easy. We’ve been ‘online friends’ for some time, but it was an absolute pleasure to meet Max and Joanna during our last visit to Bangkok. We love what they’ve created, and can’t wait to watch to see what they’ve got planned next. Below are just a few of their favourite vegan restaurants in Bangkok, along with a short quote and a couple of their (fantastic) photos for each vegan restaurant. They wanted to include So Vegan too, but when we asked for accompanying photos we were told “the food is always gone before we get around to shooting it”…looks like we’ll have to add it to our list next time we’re in Bangkok. Thanks guys, keep up the good work and hope to see you again soon!

HALE NOMAD Favourite Vegan Restaurants in Bangkok

Darren AKA HALENOMAD is the HappyCow Ambassador for Bangkok, a role that we have performed for over 6 years in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Since living in Bangkok he has eaten his way around the cities best vegan spots, updating his experiences to HappyCow along the way. We met him for brunch with the guys from Root the Future and in between us all taking photos of our food, we talked all things vegan and all things travel. He happily agreed to share a few of his favs that we hadn’t already featured in our Vegan Guide to Bangkok and here they are below. He also wanted to feature Bonita, but we already have them listed from Root the Future, this double recommendation must mean they are doing something right at Bonita! Thanks Darren, looking forward to catching up again when we’re next in Bangkok or if you fancy another trip to Siem Reap…

Munch Box by Nidhi

Munch Box by Nidhi

Khlong Toei
Bangkok 10110

”Having eaten their food at a few events around Bangkok, I was eager to try out their restaurant and boy was I not disappointed! Food was amazing, some great flavours going on for sure. My favorite was the Mexican Chaat bowl which was a taste explosion! Fresh produce and all really well presented! Also had the trio of Samosas which I always go for on a menu and the miso noodles which had the most realistic plant based prawns I’ve tasted yet! Friendly staff and a really nice classy interior with good sized portions. Will definitely be back!.”

Natures Charm Cafe

Opening Hours: 9am-8pm every day

Natures Charm Cafe
29 Sukhumvit Soi 1
Bangkok 10110

”What a find this place was, AMAZING!! I had the vegan fish and chips which just blew me away! The fish is made from banana blossom and it’s the closest thing to fish I’ve tried yet! Light crispy batter and it comes with chips, mushy peas and sauces. Had the chocolate cake as well which was equally as good, presentation was outstanding! Little flowers on top of the cake with small raspberries. Coffee was on point as well, had the latte with soya milk. It was more of a flat white which I prefer anyway! Lovely bright and minimalistic place with suoer friendly staff. Can’t recommend this place highly enough, will definitely be back again.. and again!”

Vegetarian Restaurants in Bangkok

Waki Waki Veggie Sushi

Opening Hours: 11am-9.30pm every day, closed Monday

Waki Waki Veggie Sushi

46/1 Sukhumvit 24
Khlong Tan

We spotted Waki Waki on a recent trip and made a mental note to visit. So when our friends from Root the Future suggested this as a location for us to meet up, we of course said yes. With only a few tables, make sure to book as Waki Waki is a super popular option and now we know why. Everything we ate was delightful, and trust us when we say that we ate lots. We had to keep up the pace with our eating just to make room for the delicious dishes that kept arriving at our table. From sushi to tempura and soup to katsu, everything was just perfect, this is vegan sushi that really hits the spot. Please note, that the menu is veggie but they are happy and able to serve everything vegan.

Hummus Boutique

Opening Hours: 11am-9.30pm every day

Hummus Boutique
64 Sukhumvit 51
Bangkok 10110

We were excited to head here for vegan pizza with vegan cheese but upon arrival received the devastating news that they were sold out of pizzas. Despite the knock out blow, we pulled oursleves together and ordered a hummus bowl with falafels and vegan mozzaralla sticks which were so good we ordered an extra portion. We will go back for pizza next time we’re in Bangkok…

Sook Sathorn

Opening Hours: 10am-9pm every day

Sook Sathorn
EM Quartier (Basement Level)
643 Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok 10110

We had already eaten at Walee when we spotted another option in the food court at Em Quartier. This was all veggie as they serve egg but it had a pretty extensive menu for such a small stall. We were not hungry at all but didn’t want to miss out so tried a couple of the ‘chicken’ drumsticks which cost just 19 baht each. They were pretty tasty and the dipping sauce with them was excellent. We will be sure to eat here next time we’re in Bangkok.

Vegetarian Stall

Opening Hours: 10am-9pm every day

Vegetarian Stall
Pier 21 Food Court (5th floor)
Terminal 21 Shopping Mall

The Vegetarian Stall at Terminal 21 mall offers a no frills typical Thai veggie buffet selection. For 40 THB you can choose 3 dishes to have with your rice and we paid an extra 10 THB for a portion of mock meat. The massaman curry was very good as were the green stir fried veg. The other miscellaneous curry was not that great but overall, for 50 THB it’s hard to complain. All of these spots are kind of hit and miss, depending what time you arrive and what they’re serving on that particular day.

Tien Sin

Opening Hours: 7am-2.30pm Monday to Saturday

Tien Sin
439 Khwaeng Silom
Khet Bang Rak
Bangkok 10500

A simple Thai veggie restaurant that serves buffet style food that’s great value, very tasty and altogether a very good option in Bangkok. Some dishes contain egg so choose with caution! The staff are super friendly and help to explain the dishes which are all laid out on the counter. Just point at what you like and all is piled on to a plate for you to take to your own table. It’s cheap and cheerful and well worth a visit if you want a huge plate of vegan food for around 70 baht, they also have a bunch of takeaway options including mock meats that you can cook at home.

Vegan Friendly Restaurants in Bangkok


Opening Hours: 11am-10.30pm every day

Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok
494 Rajdamri Road
Bangkok 10330

Located at 5 star luxury hotel Grand Hyatt Erawan this casual eatery serves local dishes, noodles and snacks. What makes it very exciting is the recent commitment to Green Monday, an excellent initiative that encourages and supports restaurants and hotels to offer more vegan and plant based options. This means plenty of clearly marked vegan options that are all very reasonably priced considering you are in a 5 star hotel. The dishes we ate were packed with flavour and delicious, many featuring OmniMeat, a plant based pork alternative which has just launched in Bangkok.

Prime Burger

Opening Hours: midday-11pm every day

Prime Burger
497 Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok 10110

With an excellent location on Sukhumvit Road and just a short walk from Phrom Phong BTS this is a great option for your Beyond Burger fix. Their San Fransisco burger is served in a vegan bun with vegan cheese from Daiya and an excellent homemade vegan burger sauce. It really hits the spot if you’re craving that fast food feeling from a juicy burger and we loved it. As with all of their burgers you can choose from 1, 2 or 3 patties which is perfect depending on your level of hunger AKA greediness. We’re going in on a triple next time for sure! Highly recommended and they now have two new locations, one close to Thong Lo BTS and the other in Central World.

Opening Hours: 7am-6pm every day

760 Sukhumvit Rd
Khwaeng Khlong Tan
Bangkok 10110

When walking past Bartels I caught sight of freshly baked loaves of sourdough which caught my attention. Upon further investigation I spotted the ‘vegan options’ sign so headed inside. I was welcomed with a cool and relaxed coffee shop vibe, friendly staff, and plenty of vegan sour dough creations to choose from. After much deliberation, I choose the ‘Grilled Vegan Oh Sweet Tomato’ and a beetroot almond latte. The latte hit the spot whilst awaiting my sandwich, which arrived looking mighty fine. It tasted pretty damn good too with melted Swees cheese, vegan pesto from Whisked Away, sun dried tomatoes and sweet cherry tomatoes. Super tasty grilled sandwich, we will return for sure.

Ariyasom Villa
65 Sukhumvit Soi 1

This boutique, family owned vegan friendly hotel is centrally located and just a few minutes walk from the BTS. It is an experience like no other in Bangkok with a history dating back to when the property was first built in 1941 by the current owners grandparents.

Pala Pizza

Opening Hours: 7am-11.30pm every day

Pala Pizza
BTS Asok / MRT Sukhumvit
Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok 10110

This has long been on our radar but until now our Pala Pizza experience has always been to grab a slice when passing or transferring from the BTS to the MRT. The location is certainly convenient for this, being on the ground floor of Asok BTS station on Sukhumvut Road. We knew they served a selection of vegan pizzas and pasta dishes inside so on our recent trip we stopped by to enjoy one of the vegan pizzas on offer. Our vegan pizza was delicious. The base was perfect and we loved the tomato sauce and toppings. They were super busy (they are always busy) and to be honest our pizza could have done with staying in the oven for another couple of minutes but other than that it was superb.

Saravanaa Bhavan

Opening Hours: 9am-10.30pm every day

Saravanaa Bhavan
663 Silom Rd
Bangkok 10500

With 68 outlets around the world Saravanaa Bhavan has been preparing vegetarian and vegan Indian cuisine for many years and certainly know what they are doing. We’ve dined in a few on our travels so were happy to see that “the World’s no 1 Indian chain” now have a Bangkok location. We ordered the South indian thali that we saw being served to another customer as we couldn’t resist it, they happily swapped out a couple of items with yoghurt and prepared everything with no ghee ensuring our food was 100% vegan, it was amazing and possibly one of the best thalis we’ve ever eaten (including on our trips to India). The staff were super friendly and happily topped up our small silver bowls every time they were empty, to say we left Saravanaa Bhavan very full indeed would be an understatement.

    I miss Thai food so much and seeing all these delicious vegan food makes me craving for some. I really need to go back to Bangkok and Thailand altogether and experience it as a vegan, I became vegetarian while I was there but not vegan yet.

      the food here is incredible, SO many options and where we are now (Chiang Mai) seems to have an endless supply of veggie / vegan / raw options – we find new places every day! we’re trying to write a guide but every i=time we thing we have all of our favs covered we find a new one….

    There are so many amazing places to eat while in Bangkok.

    Easily one of our fave cities in the world. Did you guys try Ethos or GoVinda?


    • PAUL February 16, 2015 at 10:10 am - Reply

      We didn’t visit either but will do next time – we couldn’t stop ourselves returning to the same places…

      Will 100% be there in January and possibly sooner – depends how things pan out this year….arriving in Siem Reap has made me realise just how good we had it in both Bangkok and Chiang Mai – there are a couple of places here but not much choice, no health food shop and it is more expensive 🙁

      Just got a small apartment though so can start cooking again 🙂

    Great post. I’ve shared it in the Thailand Vegan Facebook group here:

      Thanks for the support and also sharing post on Facebook page – much appreciated:)
      We loved May Veggie Home too, we often stay near by so it is our ‘local’ when in town, won’t be back until January 2015 but will certainly visit then…
      Had some great vegan Thai food in Siem Reap, Cambodia last night – they made a special vegan curry paste for us and we enjoyed Pad Phet, Penang curry and mixed veg with tofu – decent uathentic flavours and we are looking forward to our next visit already!

    I lived in Bangkok for 2 years (left last year) and was overall pretty disappointed with the vegan options.. I thought a lot of restaurants used too much oil and not enough fresh ingredients..
    I found that some of the BEST restaurants were the cheapest. Most of the mall food courts (including MBK and Terminal 21) have vegetarian stalls with at least a few vegan options (“jay”) and for about 1USD for a whole, big meal.

      That’s so true about cheap, local places often being the best – Thailand is great for those!! We’re discovering new places there all the time and our next visit will definitely include the new vegan cake place that sells vegan waffles and ice cream too! It looks amazing 🙂

      Do let us know about any other places to check out, we never get tired of looking for vegan food!!

    Oops – I forgot the best one in my above comment! Mango near Khao San Road was my overall favorite vegan restaurant, inexpensive, great dishes, fresh flavors, and even with vegan (AMAZING) desserts and ice creams.

      That’s another one for the list to visit then! Thanks for the tip, we’ll try to check it out next time we get to Bangkok 🙂

    This is so helpful. I’m going to Thailand and Cambodia later this week and reading your posts on the vegan food has made me really excited. Can’t wait to go and try it all out.

    Should I be booking Bo Lan is a few months advance ?

    And can I take Mayo home to Australia

      Hi Elyssa,
      I don’t think you need to book Bo.lan that far in advance but if you know you want to visit then there’s no harm in dropping them an email to make your reservation. As for the vegan mayo, you shouldn’t have any problems taking it back home with you but probably best to look online with the Australian Customs office. Sadly, they no longer sell that mayo where we found it in the mall – we’ll be updating our guide soon and taking this out (as well as adding a few new things we discovered on our last trip there).
      Hope that helps, drop us an email if you have any other questions.

    Great guide, thanks for the tips! We’re in Bangkok now & also recommend:
    – Talalask (Central World, Level 7 food court at back of the supermarket for a cheap Isan option cooked as you order)
    – Na Aroon Restaurant can do great vegan dishes as a more expensive option (
    – Veganerie for desserts & some breakfast options just off Chit Lom BTS in Mercury Ville mall (

      Thanks Dave! Have been meaning to update the guide for a while and add in details of our trip to Veganerie (oh the red velvet cake!) and Talalask (oh the pad see ew!) so thanks for the link. Will have to check out your other tip when we are back in January… already looking forward to it! Let us know of anything else we should try too… we love Bangkok! Caryl 🙂

    If you’re fancying Indian check out the Silom area. There are a lot of plant based restaurants here. Including Suananda. Super tasty food, quite peaceful and down a little alley. ☺️

      thank you for suggesting Suananda Tasmin! we will try to check it out next time we’re in town…

          Hi Stacey

    There should be a map!

    • Vegan Food Quest November 15, 2023 at 4:27 am - Reply

      we did have maps on our vegan guides previously but updating them was problematic. everywhere we list will be on google maps where you can also find any updated opening times and details.

    Hi….yes Mango just off Koh San Rd excellent, lots of choice, good portions and very tasty.
    We are in Bangkok / Thailand again in a couple of months so this vegan guide will be super useful.
