Vegan Guide to Bangkok

Vegan Food Quest Logo

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.

Broccoli Revolution

Opening Hours: Daily – 7am to 10pm

Broccoli Revolution
899 Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok 10110

Calling themselves “a modern vegan restaurant and cold pressed juice bar” Broccoli Revolution was an exciting addition to the vegan dining scene in Bangkok when they opened in August 2015. The decor and design 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 have recently added a second location (thanks for the heads up to Dee from Veggie in Chiang Mai) and although we haven’t visited yet the address and opening hours are below.

Saravanaa Bhavan

Opening Hours: Daily – 9am to 10.30pm

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.

Talalask

Opening Hours: Daily – 11am to 7pm

Talalask
Central World Mall
Bangkok

Normally the food court in a giant shopping mall wouldn’t be where we would choose to dine but believe us when we say Talalask is well worth a visit (so much so that we now seem to find oursleves there at least once every time we visit Bangkok).

Nearly all of the dishes are vegan and are cooked fresh using organic vegetables and a selection of mock meats and tofu, we love the pad se ew, green curry fried rice and gyoza dumplings but to be honest everything we’ve tried is pretty tasty.

Veganerie Concept

Opening Hours: Daily – 10am to 10pm

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.

Tien Sin

Opening Hours: Monday to Saturday – 7am to 2.30pm

Tien Sin
439 Khwaeng Silom
Khet Bang Rak
Bangkok 10500

A simple Thai vegan restaurant that serves buffet style food that’s great value, very tasty and altogether a very good option in Bangkok. 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.

Barefood Bangkok

Opening Hours: 11am-7pm every day

Barefood Bangkok

Oh . My . God

This place produces and sells the most incredible vegan cashew cheese that you just have to try, it is the best vegan cashew cheese we’ve ever tasted and we wish we lived next door!

Friendly, helpful and super passionate about what they are doing, visiting the guys at Barefood Bangkok when you are in town is an absolute must, trust us…

Veganerie EmQuartier
EmQuartier Mall
M Floor
637 Sukhumvit
Bangkok

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.

Ariya Organic Cafe

Opening Hours: Monday to Saturday – 10am to 8pm

Ariya Organic Cafe
1st Floor
Life Center
Q-House-Lumpini Building
Bangkok 10120

For anyone staying near Lumpini Park this is a great option for healthy vegan food; you can expect salads, smoothies, raw crackers, vegan sushi and desserts with much of the menu being raw.

We had just eaten but decided to visit anyway and enjoyed a light and flavoursome vegan soup with dumplings and will certainly return next time we’re in this part of town.

Veganerie Soul

Opening Hours: Daily – 10am to 10pm

Veganerie Soul
Siam Paragon
Rama 9 Rd
Bangkok

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.

May Veggie Home

Opening Hours: Daily – 11am to 10pm

May Veggie Home
8/3 (Asoke-Sukhumvit Intersection)
Ratchadaphisek Road
Khlong Toei
Bangkok 10110

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.

Rasayana Retreat

Opening Hours: Daily – 9am to 9pm

Rasayana Retreat
57 Soi Prom-mitr
Sukhumvit 39
Bangkok 0110

Nearly vegan (they use honey) 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.

Bo.lan

Opening Hours: 6pm to 10.30pm (closed Sunday)

Bo.lan
24 Sukhumvit 53 Alley
Watthana
Bangkok 10110

Although this isn’t a vegan restaurant, they have an amazing ‘Bo.lan Botanicals’ tasting menu that is 100% vegan (please pre order when you make a reservation).Bo.lan is a pretty special place and so if you love fine dining Thai vegan food, you won’t be disappointed with the magic that goes on in the kitchen.

To put it in a nutshell, Bo.lan is a vegan foodie’s paradise, expect beautifully presented, tasty food art, arriving in a steady stream to your table where you’ll be blown away with dish after dish of amazing Thai food.

This isn’t an ordinary dining experience, this is a place where happy food memories are made and where the wonders of beautiful Thai food are celebrated with every dish, click this link for a detailed review from Bo.lan.

Veganerie Mercury Ville

Opening Hours: Daily – 10am to 10pm

Veganerie
4th Floor Mercury Ville Mall
Sukhumvit Road
Bangkok

The first and original Veganerie location will always have a place in our hearts as you never forget your first time…

Head to the original Veganerie to enjoy their selection of vegan cakes, waffles, shakes, ice creams, pastries and more, it’s a big fat slice of vegan heaven and you should definitely make Veganerie your first place to visit in Bangkok because you’ll definitely want to go back.

Here is a review from our visit to the first and original Veganerie.

Govindas

Opening Hours: Daily – 12pm to 3pm and 6pm to 10.30pm

Govindas
6/5-6 Sukhumvit Soi 22
Sukhumvit Rd
Bangkok

This place is a bit of an institution having been open since 1997 serving delicious veggie and vegan Italian food, it’s a bit tricky to find but worth the effort if you want a vegan pizza with all the trimmings (they have vegan cheese!).

Serving the usual pizzas, pasta, risottos, soups and salads you’ll certainly be spoilt for choice as all of the pasta is egg free and there is a vegan option available for most dishes, using a variety of mock meats and vegan ‘cheeses’

Khanom Krok

Keep your eyes peeled for ‘khanom krok’ which our favourite sweet vegan street food made from rice flour, sugar and coconut milk, we found a couple of stalls selling them at the Silom Road night market, these little pancakes are nothing short of a wonder and should be eaten at every opportunity, trust us.

Vegan shopping in Bangkok

We often need to buy supplies when we’re in Bangkok and usually head to one of the branches of Gourmet Market or Villa Market as both stock a variety of imported items alongside locally produced mock meats and tofu, also plenty of dried nuts / seeds etc which play a big part in our diet.

Gourmet Market in Siam Paragon has a huge selction of Bob’s Red Mill products and also some interesting mock meats including vegan sausages which are perfect for that home cooked vegan hot dog.

For a simple and cheap snack when out and about in Bangkok we often visit 7-11 and pick up a ‘Rivon’ soy yoghurt and bag of ‘Snack Jack’ green pea snacks (maybe not the healthiest but they are a guilty pleasure).

There is a brand new vegan home delivery service called Vegan Store Bangkok, the team are adding new products regularly and although we haven’t tried them yet we’re happy to spread the vegan love.

    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?

    SOOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!

      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: https://www.facebook.com/groups/627077820743760/

    Good to see May Veggie Home in there. That’s my fav BKK spot to eat.

      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!

    Good choices!
    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.

    • Caryl March 21, 2015 at 3:15 pm - Reply

      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!!

  5. Steph March 21, 2015 at 12:59 am - Reply

    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.

    • Caryl March 21, 2015 at 3:21 pm - Reply

      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 has given me the fuel I need for my quick Bangkok visit in a months time. I shall be making sure, as many of these places are on my list to indulge in. Thank you so much for the inspiration!!!

      Glad you enjoyed it! We really love to eat our way around Bangkok and will be updating this guide as we find new places – feel free to share you discoveries too! Happy vegan traveling (and eating!) xx

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

    And can I take Mayo home to Australia

    • Vegan Food Quest October 8, 2015 at 4:10 pm - Reply

      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.
      Caryl

    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 (www.ariyasom.com/vegetarian-restaurant-bangkok.html).
    – Veganerie for desserts & some breakfast options just off Chit Lom BTS in Mercury Ville mall (facebook.com/VeganBakeryBangkok)

      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 🙂
