Top 5 Vegan Restaurants You Must Try In Da Nang, Vietnam

We spent over a month in Da Nang and had plenty of time to explore the city and visit some places with vegan food and vegan options. Here are the top 5 restaurants I would recommend that you visit when you are in Danang.

Where to find delicious Vietnamese food in Da Nang

1. Bao An Macrobiotic

Address: Bao An Macrobiotic, 56 Hoàng Bích Sơn, An Hải Bắc, Sơn Trà, Đà Nẵng 550000

In front of Bao An

Very friendly local restaurant offers not only delicious and fresh vegan food but you can also purchase organic supplies for you to take home and make your meals.

The restaurant is built from timber and has an old wooden house charm. It’s very simple and yet very attractive.

Waiting for lunch to be served at Bio An

The staff are very friendly and makes you feel like visiting a relative’s house. Apart from their food being vegan the food also does not contain refined sugar, no glutamine. Instead of sugar, they use syrup and molasses. The General Manager, Khanh from this eatery stated that rice and noodles they use in their cooking are brown and organic. And their vegetables are locally farmed produced without pesticides.

There are not many options available on the menu but the once that are available are very delicious. We always kept ordering Noodle Soup, Noodle, Fresh Spring Rolls and Rice Dish with Vegetables of which they change ingredients daily keeping you guessing every time.

Organic Brown Rice with Vegetables, Tofu & Spring Rolls
Brown Noodles with Fried Spring Rolls & Veggies Topped Up with Peanuts
Noodle Soup with Tofu, Fried Spring Rolls, Pumpkin & Peanuts

Fresh Vietnamese Rolls we used to buy as a takeaway the most. It has red noodle, tofu, seaweed and lettuce wrapped in rice paper and served with peanut butter sauce on a banana leaf.

Take-away Fresh Vietnamese Rolls

This small charming restaurant has an open space kitchen where you can see how the food is prepared.

We stayed close by and visited Bao An Macrobiotic quite frequently. Whether we ate at the restaurant or took take-aways the food was always enjoyable.

It’s a wonderful choice for you and your family members to enjoy healthy and delicious food in a comfortable and close-to-nature feeling restaurant.

2. Chay Corner – Vietnamese Dumplings

Address: 30 Lê Hữu Trác, An Hải Đông, Sơn Trà, Đà Nẵng 550000

Chay Corner

This is a very tiny and cute eatery which we found in the corner of one of the streets which we turned into. We were not hungry and this wasn’t a planned trip but when we saw Chay on the sign, we had to check it out. Although Chay Corner is not entirely vegan they do offer vegan options.

We met the owner of this eatery, Tran (Na). She was very sweet and spoke very good English. Na knew exactly what Vegan means and she remarked that her restaurant mainly attracts foreigners who are vegan and she customises the dishes for them. She also stated that she delivers vegan food on demand.

The owner, Tran (Na) and I

In that said, we were confident that we are going to have vegan food and immediately ordered a few dishes to try.

We tasted Vietnamese mushroom dumplings, vegan sushi and ban mi (baguette staffed with veggie and tofu) which all tasted delicious. Na, also pointed out that dumplings were her signature dish and many of her customers love it.

I agree the dumplings were very tasty although the portion size was a little bit smaller than what I expected. The Ban Mi tasted very good which we ended up ordering a takeaway as well.

Enjoying Vegan Sushi

We visited this place only once and were very impressed with the owner’s friendliness and her willingness to customise any dishes we were pointing out off the menu. So definitely will recommend to check out Chay Corner.

3. Vegan Restaurant – Đà Nẵng Cơm Chay 2

Address: 329 Dương Đình Nghệ, An Hải Bắc, Sơn Trà, Đà Nẵng 55000

This is a fancy looking restaurant is not entirely vegan but vegetarian with vegan options.

We particularly enjoyed Fresh Spring Rolls. Fresh ingredients were served on a plate and you had to make the rolls yourself. We had fun with that and made it the way we wanted by adding those ingredients that we liked the most. It was fun and a good experience. (I usually prefer it that way).

We also ordered Skewers, Stir-fried Noodles and Vietnamese pancake.

Skewers Accompanied By Salad

Although, the pancake was a little oily for my taste the other dishes tasted very good.

4. Roots Plant-Based Cafe

Address: An Thượng 30, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 55000

Roots Plant-Based Cafe, Danang

This pretty cafe offers western-style dishes from buddha bowls and smoothie bowls to wraps, sandwiches, toasts and vegan burgers. For drinks, you can have cold-pressed juices, kombucha and great coffee!

Delicious Vegan Burger at Roots

The cafe is a bit more expensive than other local cafes we visited, but we truly love their burgers. It was fresh, plentiful and quite creative to satisfy my cravings.

You can also purchase eco-friendly household items and some food items to take away.

5. Tam Chau

Address: 15 Đông Kinh Nghĩa Thục, Đà Nẵng, 55000, Vietnam

The entrance of Tam Chao

This vegan restaurant is top-notch. It had just been opened a few days before we left Da Nang. It’s located down the road from our homestay so likely we could visit it a few times before leaving.

We tried their breakfast and we were very impressed with the food, the level of service and the restaurant itself. Because it was newly opened, everything there was new and looked immaculate. They have traditional Vietnamese decor and style and the furniture looked elegant and stunning with a traditional twist.

They have a comprehensive list of Vietnamese vegan dishes on the menu however, during breakfast time they offer a limited menu with just a few dishes.

We thoroughly enjoyed delicious Pho and Bún bò Chay (vegan spicy noodle soup). Both soups were accompanied by an assortment of fresh herbs. And we also ordered the third item which was Bánh bèo (mini rice cakes)

Breakfast Arrived
About to eat my Pho

Bánh bèo – Translating to English is water fern cake.

Bánh bèo – Mini Rice Cakes

Our vegan version was served with chilli and sweet chilli sauces. This dish is made from a combination of rice flour and tapioca flour with peanuts and crotons toppings. The cakes are delicate with a slightly chewy texture. It was unusual and tasted good.

So.. are you feeling hungry yet? Did you find a hidden gem that we missed on our list? Share with us and our readers.
