Fried chicken and Som Tam are some of the more famous dishes you’ll find on the streets of Bangkok, Thailand, but the city is no stranger to vegetarian food. If you’re heading to this colorful and lively city, you won’t have a difficult time finding food to suit your lifestyle. Here are the 10 best vegetarian restaurants in Bangkok.
1. Tien Sin
Hours: Mon-Sat: 7am-3pm
Address: Thanon Si Wiang
Don’t let appearances fool you. This humble street stall serves a mean vermicelli noodle soup with a radish sweetness and peppery flavor that’s complex and captivating. If you’d like, you can add rice to your meal, as well as a myriad of side dishes. There are several other food options, and I’m certain they’re all as delicious as the soup.
2. Bonita Café and Social Club
Hours: Wed-Mon: 9:30am-9:30pm
Address: 100 Soi Pramote (Silom Soi 26), Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok
Phone: +66 2 081 5824
This café exhibits a vintage vibe and caters well to vegetarians. I had breakfast, and later, a veggie burger here and loved every bit, despite the simplicity of the meals. They were well cooked, well seasoned, and delicious to the last bite. This one may be my personal favorite.
3. May Veggie Home
Hours: Daily 11am-10pm
Address: Soi 16 Ratchadaphisek Rd – Soi Sukhumvit 16, Khwaeng Khlong Toei, Khet Khlong Toei, Krung Thep
Phone: +66 2 118 2967
You won’t find any cow milk here. Every item that requires milk is made with rice milk, with the exception of the coconut milk ice cream – and goodness is it delicious. I had the Mock Fish with a mango side salad and was extremely satisfied.
4. Suananda Vegetarian Garden
Hours: Mon-Sat: 9:30am-9pm
Address: 109/9 Thanon Pan, Silom 10500
Phone: +66 2 238 1733
This restaurant doesn’t only serve great food – it hosts cooking workshops and yoga classes that anyone can be a part of. The food is heavily influenced by the cuisine of Myanmar. I had the Cauliflower Curry and was deeply satisfied. Both the indoor and outdoor seating is comfortable.
5. Ariya Organic Place
Hours: Daily 10am-8pm
Address: 1st FL., Life Center,Q-house-Lumpini Bldg
Phone: +66 2 677 7166
The Tom Yum Gung Sushi here was jaw-dropping delicious. The Tom Yum sauce featured the perfect balance of spiciness and sourness, and was just as refreshing as it’s meant to be. The Nori was fresh and the Soy Prawns complimented the sauce well. I finished the meal off with a Beetroot Smoothie, which was sweet and pleasant. The only downside to this restaurant is the higher than average price.
6. Broccoli Revolution
Hours: Daily 7am-10pm
Address: 899, Sukhumvit Rd, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
Phone: +66 95 251 9799
Though this place is named after broccoli, that’s not what I ordered. Instead, I tried the stunning charcoal burger, which was grilled to perfection. I cannot suggest that burger enough. The interior is hip as can be with an art gallery on the second floor and rooftop seating coming soon.
Hours: Daily 8am-9pm
Address: 71 Sukhumvit Rd, Khwaeng Phra Khanong, Khet Khlong Toei, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110, Thailand
Phone:+66 88 969 6242
This restaurant doubles as a healthy grocery store, carrying ready-made meals that can be microwaved and eaten on the spot. There’s also a full-service menu, however, featuring options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The rich flavor of the Cauliflower Rice took me by surprise. If you try it out yourself, don’t forget to remove the avocado before microwaving the meal.
8. Chennai Kitchen
Hours: Daily 10am-3pm, 6pm-9:30pm
Address: Address: 107/4Thanon Pan
Phone: +66 81 171 0293
This restaurant serves inexpensive Indian vegetarian food that is simple, cost-effective, and fuss-free. I tried a bit of the Salty Lassi, Mysore Masala Dosai, and Butter Masala Dosai. Each meal was fantastic and the sauces were created with skill. The food overall was tasty and the Lassi paired with everything perfectly.
9. Koko Thai and Vegetarian Cuisine
Hours: Daily 11am-9:30pm
Address: 262/5 Siam Square Soi 3, Khwaeng Pathum Wan, Khet Pathum Wan, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330, Thailand
This casual café exudes a chill vibe and conscious food. The Tom Yum Mushroom was spicy and delicious, just like I wanted it to be. The mushrooms were noticeably fresh and the staff was incredibly friendly.
10. Sustaina Organic Restaurant
Hours: Daily 9:30am-8:30pm
Address: 2/F, 1/40 Sukhumvit Soi 39, 10270, Thailand
Phone: +66 2 258 7573
The vegetarian choices at Sustaina are off-the-charts delicious. I had the smoked vegetables, which were intensely aromatic and wonderfully seasoned. The meals didn’t only taste incredible, but they looked it too. Every dish we ordered was plated beautifully and soared above expectations.
