If you are looking for vegan food in Da Nang then I’d say you’ve hit the jackpot. This burgeoning seaside city is fast becoming a vegan haven.
Sandwiched in between the two beautiful and touristy cities of Huế and Hội An, Da Nang has often been overlooked as a tourist destination, but in more recent years people are starting to flock here thanks to its beautiful long sandy beach and tasty food.
Because of this, you are beginning to see more and more vegan restaurants in Da Nang. You still have the usual local chay eateries, meaning you can experience some delicious local Vietnamese food, vegan style. On top of this, you can also enjoy eating at some trendier vegan spots serving up smoothie bowls and burgers.
I have spent quite a few months in this beautiful seaside city and would love to share with you my favourite plant-based spots to eat at. I have included a mix of restaurants, including some trendy vegan spots, some local chay spots and a few non-vegan restaurants with plant-based dishes that are worth a try!
You definitely won’t be leaving Da Nang feeling hungry. So, let’s tuck in to the best vegan restaurants in Da Nang, Vietnam.
- Vegan: Yes
- Location: 27 Trần Bạch Đằng, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 55000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Start Up Smoothie Bowl & Falafel Bowl
- Price range: 65,000-190,000 vnd per dish
If you are after the best smoothie bowls in Da Nang then you need to get yourself over to Roots. Their smoothie bowls are something else. It is almost like eating ice cream for breakfast, just healthier. I like to go for their Start Up Smoothie bowl which is blended with coffee for an extra caffeine hit in the morning.
I’m not exaggerating when I say I eat their smoothie bowls pretty much every single morning.
But the fun doesn’t stop there, because they also sell a mix of delicious salad bowls, vegan burgers, and toast.
Their restaurant is a really nice spot to hang out in with both an outside and inside area. All of the staff are super friendly and happy which creates a really lovely atmosphere when dining in.
Mom’s Kitchen by Chickpea Eatery
- Vegan: Yes
- Location: 73-12 Trương Định, Mân Thái, Sơn Trà, Đà Nẵng, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Cao lầu & bao buns
- Price range: 35,000-60,000 vnd per dish
I fell in love with Chickpea Eatery’s food and staff when I first visited their restaurant in Hội An (you can read my review of Chickpea Eatery here). So I was incredibly happy when I found out that they also had a restaurant closer to me in Da Nang, called Mom’s Kitchen by Chickpea Eatery.
It is set inside their family home, which is really calm and cosy. You get to watch them cooking your dishes as you sit and relax in their living space.
Just like in their Hội An restaurant, the food does not at all disappoint! The flavours are distinct and fresh. You probably wont get the chance to try vegan versions of local dishes like Cao lầu this good anywhere else!
I would live here if it was a little bit closer to the Mỹ Khê beach area.
- Vegan: Yes
- Location: Lô 31 An Thượng 4, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Saigon Bowl
- Price range: 65,000-160,000 vnd per dish
This is one of the most popular vegan spots in Da Nang and it is easy to see why. When you visit their restaurant you get real beachy vibes and a good mix of nutritious tasty vegan food.
You can order everything from a smoothie bowl, to a vegan burger or a Vietnamese-style salad bowl. Plus, they have a good range of drinks including an oat milk latte. You don’t see oat milk too often in Vietnam, so this is really awesome!
I personally love their smoothie bowls (although I would argue that the ones at Roots are better), but most of all I love their Saigon Bowl which I eat pretty much every other day.
- Vegan: Yes
- Location: Lo 29 An Thượng 29, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: KFC Mushroom Taco
- Price range: 65,000-90,000 vnd per dish
This small vegan eatery in the backstreets of Mỹ An is worth a visit for their french fries alone. They are some of the crispiest fries I have ever had the pleasure of eating and I have eaten them more times than I care to tell.
They also do a few different Asian dishes including a tasty Yakisoba, a Thai peanut noodle dish and some more classic Vietnamese dishes of Lemongrass Tofu and rice and a vegan Beef Stew. On top of this, they also do some incredible deep fried mushrooms which you can order with rice, as a burger or inside a taco.
I love how you can order a mix of unhealthy fried food and much healthier vegetable-heavy dishes from their restaurant. If there is a few of you ordering then it keeps everyone happy!
- Vegan: Yes
- Location: 61 Lê Quang Đạo, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Phở & Oyster Mushroom Salad
- Price range: 40,000-105,000 vnd per dish
This is probably one of my most visited vegan restaurants in Da Nang, mostly because of the wide range of food that they offer for really affordable prices. And I am not the only one, this restaurant can get really busy with both locals and tourists/expats.
All of the staff are really friendly and they all speak English, so if you need any help picking a dish they can easily help you!
Their starters are all really delicious and I particularly enjoy their deep fried spring rolls that they serve with mustard leaves to roll up in. For mains I would recommend one of their noodle soups, a salad, or their vegan Bánh Xèo which is super tasty!
You could eat here many times and try out a new dish every time. You wouldn’t regret it!
- Vegan: No
- Location: 2-4-6 An Thượng 3, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Phở-show & Bravacado
- Price range: 100,000-130,000 vnd per dish
You know when you see a restaurant advertising their menu as predominantly vegan and you believe they could get away with going fully vegan, well, Lang3 is one of these. Their establishment is really trendy and a definite hit with both expats and tourists.
Their oat milk latte is delicious and could easily take over any of their cow’s milk options.
This place is a little on the pricier side of things, but their avocado on toast and selection of wraps and pitas can be a welcome break from local food.
Make sure to also check out their climbing wall on the first floor and their yoga classes which take place on the top floor!
Bếp Chay Hữu Duyên
- Vegan: No, vegetarian
- Location: 70 Dương Khuê, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Bún Xào Nghệ
- Price range: 25,000-30,000 vnd per dish
If you love Cơm eateries where you get a plate of rice and whatever other ingredients they’ve cooked that day pilled on top, then you’ll enjoy eating at Bếp Chay Hữu Duyên.
You can either order their vegan rice or their vegan turmeric noodles which both come topped with an array of vegan meats and vegetables. You can also order a side of extra fake meats and they do a good Bánh Mì.
Their food tastes great and is really cheap. I order from them regularly through Grab for a quick lunch or a more substantial dinner.
Quán Chay Hạnh Vegan
- Vegan: Yes
- Location: 33/03 Hải Hồ, Thanh Bình, Hải Châu, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Cao Lầu
- Price range: 20,000-40,000 vnd per dish
If you want to try a few different types of Vietnamese dishes that have been made vegan, then you should visit Quán Chay Hạnh Vegan, or order a delivery from them on Grab.
They have an extensive range of dishes to try, including Cao Lầu (a noodle dish from Hội An), Bánh Cuốn Chay (rolled rice flour cakes) and Gỏi Đu Đủ (papaya salad).
All of the dishes are really cheap but tasty, meaning you can order a whole bunch of them to try out.
Quán chay phước duyên
- Vegan: Yes
- Location: 202 Đỗ Bá, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000
- Dish recommendation: Mỳ Quảng
- Price range: 20,000-25,000 vnd per dish
This local vegan eatery is one of the cheapest you’ll find, but the food is incredibly tasty. They have the usual daily rice options which will set you back about 25,000 vnd or you can get yourself one of their noodle soup dishes.
I personally love their Mỳ Quảng, the broth is really tasty and they fill it up with plenty of nutritious ingredients like beans, soy-based fake meat, and taro.
The family who run this are really friendly and happy to help. I’d definitely recommend visiting them and supporting their small business!
- Vegan: No
- Location: 126 Bà Huyện Thanh Quan, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: ‘Green Vegan’ pizza
- Price range: 150,000 vnd per vegan pizza
When you need a quick break from Vietnamese food you can take yourself down to the local pizza joint, Hermanos Pizza. They have a wood fired oven and some decent dough.
They have two vegan pizzas on their menu, ‘Vegan’ and ‘Green Vegan’. Neither come with vegan cheese, but they are still pretty tasty. I quite enjoyed their ‘Green Vegan’ pizza which had a lovely pesto sauce with tangy capers and olives on top, but found the ‘Vegan’ pizza to be a little dull.
I ordered mine with a side of wedges which definitely satisfied my potato cravings.
You can also enjoy a craft beer or two from local breweries like Heart of Darkness. These go down really nicely with a pizza!
- Vegan: No
- Location: 84 Hoàng Kế Viêm, Bắc Mỹ Phú, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 550000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Vegan Bánh Mì
- Price range: 59,000-89,000 vnd per dish
If you are looking for a spot where you can work, eat and drink coffee, then you’ll love BreadnSalt. It is digital nomad heaven, so you’ll see a sea of laptops as soon as you enter the café. But it is such a lovely open space with great coffee and food it is easy to see why it is so popular.
I can happily work here all day fuelled by their iced Vietnamese coffee and a Vegan Bánh Mì. The sandwich is huge, so I tend to gradually make my way through it as I work.
They usually fill it with breaded tofu and some kind of vegan fake meat, alongside some pickled veg and a mushroom-style pate. Although, it can vary depending on the day. So I’ve had some pretty amazing bánh mì and some okay ones. They’ve always been filling and pretty decent. I’d go as far to say that they’ve been better than bánh mì I’ve bought from fully vegan spots.
If you aren’t in the mood for a sandwich then they also offer a vegan burrito and avocado toast (which I’m not 100% certain is vegan by default so do check).
- Vegan: No
- Location: 50 An Thượng 2, Bắc Mỹ An, Ngũ Hành Sơn, Đà Nẵng 55000, Vietnam
- Dish recommendation: Vegan poké bowl
- Price range: 100,000 vnd per dish
I am a big fan of poke bowls, unfortunately I am yet to find a fully vegan poke bowl restaurant. So for now, I like to show my support for the vegan dish at Poké Wow. It is made with a variety of healthy vegetables, fruit and rice. Plus you get plenty of plant-based protein mixed in, including tempeh, edamame beans and peanut sauce.
They sell their bowls in both small and large sizes, perfect for ever changing appetites (like mine).
Their restaurant is just down the road from the beach, perfect for anyone needing to refuel after a surfing lesson.
