When in Bangkok you have to try these top vegan food places
Vegan Supper Club Dinner
Enjoy a vegan gourmet dinner in Bangkok served at the chef’s home. Supper Clubs are unique dining events and very popular in Europe – a cross between a dinner party and a restaurant. The only difference between this dinner and an expensive high street establishment is that you dine in the relaxed, informal atmosphere of the dining room at the chef’s home and you meet amazing people from all walks of life. The menu contains 5 gourmet courses and can be originals or a fusion inspired by different recipes and cuisine all over there world which has been veganized. On the website you will see pictures of the past events and get an idea of what kind of food is served. This event is for adventurous foodies and takes place one´s to twice a month. It is not only a dinner but a unique experience where you will go home with a story. The location varies and you’ll get the exact direction with your booking confirmation.
OPEN: 1-2 times a month starting from 7pm
Owned by a few vegan activists Veganerie is definitely one of my favorite places to go if I feel like having something sweet, it’s the ultimate vegan foodporn place. They use less sugar to boot, Gluten-free products, such as the strawberry and kiwi shortcake, are also available. My favorite is the strawberry cheesecake parfait and the brownie with banana ice cream which is more than delicious! A vegan cake and sweet tooth paradise, that is for sure, and one you should absolutely have on your list. They also recently opened up another store close to Phrom Phong BTS Station just behind Bejansiri Park. Don’t leave without getting some cake to go for the next morning.
May Veggie Vegan Restaurant
Fully vegan restaurant in Bangkok conveniently located close to the intersection with Sukhumvit, just a few minutes from Asok BTS and Sukhumvit MRT station. I have been here many times and it has become one of my favorite places to go to in Bangkok. Some of the dishes I sampled and enjoyed were Masaman Curry, Fried Fish, tofu larb (a spicy and soupy minced tofu with pounded rice and Thai herbs, a classic you shouldn’t leave Thailand without tasting!), grilled vegan bacon-wrapped mushrooms and all of the burgers. On top of that, they have an excellent selection of vegan ice cream that is simply to die for – the Thai tea is my absolute my favorite.
OPEN: daily, 11am – 10pm
May Kaidee Vegetarian Restaurant
Located on a quiet leafy street just behind the Burger King on Tanao Road, May Kaidee is easy to spot. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is laid back and breezy. Some of the food I tried was Panang Curry, Fresh spring rolls, Tom Kha soup (spicy and sour soup with lots of coconut milk), Pad Thai, and Sticky rice with Mango and it all was delicious! They also have a buffet every Saturday and a cooking school. Even non-vegans are bound to fall in love with the dishes served at the place simply because of their fabulous and exceptional taste. The fruit shakes of the restaurant are believed to be the tastiest, thickest, and richest in the whole of Bangkok.
OPEN: daily, 9am – 10pm
Na Aroon Vegetarian Restaurant with Luxury Hotel
Na Aroon is very surprising not only for its hidden location at the end of Sukhumvit Soi 1, but also for the delightful array of organic Thai vegan choices. The atmosphere was really relaxed and romantic around the swimming pool. Na Aroon specializes in Thai cuisine and serves mostly vegetarian food with some seafood and uses only organic produce, and does not use MSG, food coloring, or preservatives. Menu winners include Massaman curry with tofu which is my absolute favorite and I have to say I have never had such a good version of Massaman Curry. The staff is very courteous and super sweet and friendly. The owner is usually present and making sure that everyone is satisfied. I highly recommend this place for families, couples or singles it is just a perfect place to relax. It feels like you are miles away from the noise and bustle of Bangkok.
OPEN: daily, 6:30am – 10:30pm
Theera healthy bake room coffee Shop
Theera Coffee Shop is a nice and stylish place just a few minute’s walk from Ekkamai BTS (exit 2). Good selection of healthy conscious vegan desserts and lunch. They serve up a regularly rotating range of baked treats that are guaranteed to be gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free. The owner is really friendly and always happy to answer any questions you may have.
OPEN: daily, 10am – 7pm
Anotai Vegetarian Restaurant
Hidden in an unassuming complex near Rama 9 Hospital, it’s easy to dismiss Anotai from the outside, but step inside and you’ll find this healthy vegetarian restaurant. The décor and the atmosphere reflect its multiple personalities: a handful of dark wood tables and chairs, pale yellow walls and dim yellow lighting, a café-like cake display, and a Chinese arch that leads to a wooden staircase lined with jars of herbs and spices. The menu list contains a good choice of vegan dishes with great light and healthy Thai dishes, along with organic salads, pasta neatly prepared on artistic plates. Also popular are Anotai’s massive selection of healthy herbal teas. The Ingredients are 100% organic, many grown on the owner’s vegetable plot outside of Bangkok.
OPEN: 10am – 9pm (closed on Wednesdays)
Rasayana Raw Vegan Food Café and Retreat
The food at Rasayana Retreat is quite simply mind-blowingly and in my opinion the best vegan raw food restaurant in town. You walk into the cafe and you are surrounded by gardens and sweet lustful music in the background. It is strictly vegan and everything is just so alive, not to mention tasty and the food looks so beautiful when it arrives that it almost feels sinful to eat it. Menu items include Thai pasta, where the noodles are made from strips of coconut flesh and zucchini, and eggplant lasagna, made with marinated eggplant, zucchini, marinara, and avocado sauce. You can even get a raw burger here, made from sunflower seeds, olive oil, shoyu, flax seeds, mushroom, onion, garlic, and celery, and plenty of salads, soups, and healthy desserts on the menu as well. The food is fresh, full of flavor, and leaves you with energized feelings. Rasayana also has some yummy raw snacks for sale like Macadamia Nut Bread, Raw Brownies, Raw Donuts, Beetroot Cookies, and Seed Bars, so stock up while you’re there!
OPEN: daily, 9am – 9pm
Reflect Restaurant at Bangkok Tree House
Another place to eat as a vegan in Bangkok is this eco-resort which is located on the bank of the Chao Phraya River in what is dubbed “The Green Lungs of Bangkok”. The cute restaurant is built in harmony with nature out of bamboo on a raised platform affording beautiful views of the nearby jungle. The Bangkok Tree House is 200 meters from the ferry dock. Reflect has a separate vegetarian menu showcasing local organic ingredients and several vegan options such as a spicy summer watermelon salad, tofu larb cakes on lemongrass sticks, and mango sticky rice, all presented delightfully. The menu follows the seasons with daily changes as fresh produce becomes available from local fruit orchards and artisan dessert makers. A great hangout place to chat even under the morning sun when Thailand is experiencing chillier weather. Here is a quick video about my day trip to Bang Krachao and my visit to the Tree House Restaurant.
OPEN: 8am – 6pm (8pm on weekends)
All You Can Eat Fruit Buffet at Baiyoke Sky Hotel
If you are a fruit lover like me, this one is not to be missed. Located in the Baiyoke Sky Hotel, the tallest building in Thailand on the 18th floor where you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the city. For 350 Baht you can enjoy fresh fruit as much as you like, including durian, mangosteen, mangoes, dragon fruit, longan, papaya, rambutans, coconut, pineapple, watermelon, tamarind, guava, etc. There is also a selection of candied fruit, pickled fruit, fruit juice, mango sticky rice, sorbet, and even a chocolate fountain. I just stuck with the fresh raw fruit and ate a whole lot of it.
OPEN: daily, 9am – 9pm

Taste of India
India is a land of contradictions. Before we came to India, we heard all kinds of stories, both good and bad. Either you love it or you hate it! The first step into India was walking from Nepal to the Indian border, and I definitely saw changes immediately.
