Traveling with dietary requirements is often tough, especially in a country where you will face language barriers. In Vietnam, spotting vegan food is easy—just look for the world “chay” in shop banners. If you’re too lazy to do that, we’ve done the work for you. Here are the vegan restaurants in Ho Chi Minh city that deliver time and time again.
Vegan Restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
The Organik House
Sen Quan Chay
Sen Quan Chay (Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant) is one of the vegan restaurants in Ho Chi Minh city. It is a little more upmarket, and the menu here is purely vegan, so you can dine here without a worry. The menu spreads its pages between Vietnamese favorites, but you must try the bun bo Hue, as it is phenomenal. Other favorites are the mango salad and the vegan egg, that actually tastes better than your typical egg. We’re not sure what it’s made out of though, but you’re more than welcome to ask your friendly server.
Also, if dining on tables and chairs is too mainstream for ya, upstairs has an even more cosy seating area where people dine on the floor.

When dining in this cozy spot, you’ll find yourself surrounded by lush gardens, wooden décor, and fountains that create an elegant and calming atmosphere. Hum’s creative menu is designed to be fulfilling for your body and nourishing for your soul. They pride themselves on the elegant presentation of their dishes, so get your camera ready if you’re “one of those” people.
