While many Thai dishes feature some type of meat, there are surprisingly a number of delicious and meat-free restaurants challenging everything we carnivores thought we knew about our diets. The vegetarian and vegan scene in Bangkok is thriving in a country known for its meaty dishes, and many restaurants in the capital are astounding diners with their unique, plant-based menus. With that being said, check out the best vegetarian restaurants in Bangkok.

 

Vegetarian Restaurants in Bangkok: Ethos

If you are searching for a unique vegan dining experience, look no further than Ethos. Visitors can not miss the entrance of this eatery, as the exterior is adorned with hanging green foliage that certainly adds to the veggie vibe. Hanging romantic and red lights make it the perfect spot for a meat-free date. Plenty of plush pillows on the floor make the venue a great place to come with friends and chow down, as well.

The Menu

This vegetarian bakery and cafe serenade diners with lounge and world music as they indulge in any one of the tasty and organic finds at Ethos. While all of the meat-free dishes on the menu are raved about, we recommend the vegan pancakes and salad. Both of which were incredibly delicious and surprisingly healthy. The friendly staff is at the ready to make all dishes vegan upon request, as well. You can expect to find Thai, Indian, Eastern, and Western meat-free finds on the menu. Wash these down with a fruit shake or finish your meal with a home-baked treat.

Vegetarian Restaurants in Bangkok: Veganerie Concept

Vegan food does not get much more delicious than those dishes found at Veganerie Concept. Its menu is equipped with one of the largest selections of faux meat in the capital. This is refreshing in comparison to the vegetable-heavy dishes vegetarian travellers are used to in Southeast Asia. The business is a family one, with almost every member of them being vegetarian or vegan. Mother and co-founder, Kalayanee, chose to be vegan. Her health started to immensely improve. Soon afterwards she decided to open the restaurant. She did so in hopes that others might change their diets, as well. There are now a total of five instalments in the capital since Veganerie opened about two years ago.

The Menu

Be on the lookout for quinoa and Buddha bowls, appetizers, salads, pasta, curry and bread roti, burgers, wraps, sandwiches, smoothie bowls, an all-day brunch menu, hotcakes, pancakes, and more. The vegan Italian crepe (฿250) is eerily close to the real deal. It is made with Italian style pizza sauce and filled with soy sausages, champignons, soy cheese, and cashew nut parmesan. Mushrooms make up the majority of the vegan BBQ pulled pork (฿310). Diners will be convinced they are chowing down on chicken instead of cauliflower when they try the Hawaiian veggie teriyaki (฿290). Whatever it is you are craving, this restaurant is eager to please. Be sure to check out the extensive dessert menu, as well, with vegan ice cream, pancakes, and more to choose from.

Vegetarian Restaurants in Bangkok: Rasayana Raw Cafe

While vegan and vegetarian food tends to be healthier, no venues take clean eating to the same level as Rasayana Raw Cafe. This outdoor eatery is in the bustling Sukhumvit area. You would not guess this when entering this garden oasis in the capital, however. It is here that you can indulge in food that is unprocessed and unpasteurized. The food does not contain animals products, wheat, gluten, or dairy, as well. Last but not least, none of the food has been heated above 42° Celcius. This means that the meals will still have the nutrients in them that would be otherwise be destroyed when cooked.

The menu at Rasayana Cafe is impressive. You will find an assortment of tasty raw Western dishes to choose from. The mushroom marinara pizza (฿220) is sure to be a hit amongst all those who visit. The crust is made with live flaxseed and sunflower which is topped with marinated mushrooms, sauce, and more vegetables. Rasayana is also serving up an eggplant lasagna, a shitake sandwich, and more for only ฿220 (about $7).

Vegetarian Restaurants in Bangkok: May Veggie Home

Vegan food is hard to come by in Bangkok, let alone delicious vegan food.  For the most part, veg-heads are left to fend for themselves in this city. That being said, we found one of the most delicious vegan restaurants in Bangkok: May Veggie Home. “Cute” is the word that comes to mind when stepping foot into one of the best vegan restaurants in town. Even the name is cute. May Veggie Home’s food packs a very powerful, delicious punch into every dish, however. The restaurant first opened off the BTS Skytrain stop Thonglor in 2013 before moving to Asok in 2014. The restaurant has been pleasing vegetarian appetites in the city ever since.

The wide selection of dishes at May Veggie Home is dizzying. To every vegan’s delight, there are not one but four different veggie burgers to choose from. Those wanting a burger should try the signature veggie burger. It is made of beans and consisting of 15 different spices and put onto a whole-wheat English muffin.  Or try one of the delicious curries. These are made with everything from tofu to vegetarian shrimp. The menu also has vegetarian fish, chicken, and steak to choose from. One of May Veggie Home’s specialities is its mouthwatering juices. Be sure to end your meal with one of the tasty vegan desserts. Sweets include vegan ice cream, tasty muffins, and more.

Vegetarian Restaurants in Bangkok: Govinda Restaurant & Pizzeria

One food item that vegans seem to miss most from their carnivorous glory days is cheese. What dairy-free diners would do to be able to delve into a cheese board without any moral or digestive repercussions! Now they can, however, thanks to Govinda Restaurant & Pizzeria. This Italian restaurant would impress even the most cheese-loving of the diner with their faux, dairy-free version of this food we all know and love. Though the restaurant’s interior is lacking any true charm, it does not have to impress visitors with cool decor when their food is that good.

The Menu

The menu at Govinda is broken up into an intimidating number of sections but has all the fixings that acclaimed Italian restaurants seemingly have. Kick-start a meal with bread or appetizers, featuring pizza bread (฿155), Schiacciata (฿145), or the bruschetta Margherita (฿155). All can be made vegan. There are a total of 21 pizzas on the menu ranging from ฿205-380, as well. You can add extra toppings or enjoy whole wheat crust if you so, please. There are also soups, salads, pasta, speciality pasta, home-made gnocchi, risotto, main courses, side dishes, and egg-free desserts on the menu. The most impressive section we think is the soy meat section. From grilled soy sausages (265) to soy snow fish with tomato, garlic, olives, and chilli, one cannot go wrong by exploring these seemingly meaty yet meat-free options.

 

Hours: Open daily (except Tuesdays) from noon until 2:30 p.m. and again from 6-11:30 p.m.

Vegetarian Restaurants in Bangkok: Khun Churn

TThose travelerswho are keen on tasting Thai vegetarian dishes at their best need to make their way to Khun Churn. The restaurant is located conveniently off the Ekkamai BTS Skytrain station. The best part about Khun Churn, however, is that it is affordable and healthy. MSG, an ingredient that somehow makes its way into many dishes in Thailand, is not put in a single one. The restaurant has been open since 1995. It focuses on creating vegetable-based dishes that are both delicious and good for you.

The Menu

Khun Churn has no faux meat on their menu. This is because the restaurant wants to show customers just how tasty vegetables can be. Some of their signature dishes include the pomelo salad (yum som-o). This is a fresh salad consisting of pomelo, lime juice, roasted coconut, ground peanuts, fried shallot, roasted sesame and dried chilli. The restaurant also serves up a delicious Khao Soi, a curry dish that is popular in Northern Thailand. Arguably the best part about visiting Khun Churn is the prices. Many of the vegetarian dishes are under ฿100, with large portions to boot.
