Affordable colorful lunch

Restaurant Chay is fully vegan and specializes in Vietnamese cuisine. On weekdays, there are 3 menu items available for lunch. Depending on the week of the day, you have a different choice of dishes. For 125 SEK, you can get one meal, water and coffee/tea. For dinner and on weekends, you can order from the regular menu.

During weekday lunchtime, you have to go inside, order at the counter and pay in advance before food is served to you.

The day we ate here, there was a problem with one of the dishes we had ordered. After I told staff about it, they first tried to talk us into believing that it was supposed to taste like it did. After a while, they turned up with a freshly cooked dish instead, which tasted 100% better than the first dish.

Other than that, the rest of the dishes tasted either good or okay.
I was surprised by the low prices and the colorful and flavorful food.

The restaurant is large and has seating indoors as well as outdoors. It is colorfully decorated with an Asian-style interior to create an exotic flair. The restaurant is located on the plaza Sundstorget and you can look at the surroudings if you sit outdoors.

Pros: Taste ok, Friendly prices for lunch, Exotic atmosphere

Cons: 1 dish was bad, which they didn't admit at first

Well-rounded lunch

You like Vietnamese food? This place had an amazing lunch for 125 sek (2023). I ate some noodles packed with raw vegetables, tofu, seitan and a curry made of coconut milk. I couldn't think of anything missing or that I'd add myself. Definitely a place worth visiting regardless of your food preferences.

Pros: Not expensive, Close to the centralstation, Outdoor siting

Fab, but service could have been better

We had very nice meals here and it's a lovely restaurant but the service was a bit lacking. No initiative to offer us more drinks or dessert so we had to go to the bar and ask after waiting for ages.
But the food was delicious.

Pros: Lots of variety, Reasonable prices, Friendly, Clean toilets!

Cons: Slow / lacking service

Amazing food, many options

So many different options and everything we tried was amazing! I'd recommend especially the vegan salmon.

I'd give an extra star for the music, Taylor Swist all night 😍 definitely one of my favorite places

Unfortunatly not the best for me as I avoid gluten, but whenever I have friends over, no matter if vegan or not, they always love this place. It is the best, not just in Helsingborg but in the entire region.

Pros: Tasted so good

Cons: Can take long time to get food, Closes somewhat early

My favorite restaurant!

This is my favorite restaurant in town! Me and my boyfriend have eaten there many times and like to try out new dishes. There are tapas/starters, salads, noodle-, rise dishes, and soups. The portions are big if you order a main dish.
The shakes are delicious! They are filling but oh so good!
The deserts are also really good!
If you are ever in Helsingborg you should visit Chay Vegan!

If I could give 10 stars I would

Everything we had was just perfect. We went there for lunch. The lunch menu contains 3 different dishes and changes daily. The whole menu for the week made our mouths water. We had 1 & 3 (see photos) and we couldn’t have been happier. The owner is super friendly and made our visit even more pleasant. Coffee with optional Oatly was included in the lunch price. Lunch menu only cost us only 300 SEK for 2 people with drinks, which is a great deal!! We also had coconut icecream with passion fruit for dessert and it was soooo good. When it’s sunny, you can sit outside which is nice.

Pros: All vegan, delicious food, changing menu, nice interior and super friendly staff

It’s the only vegan place in town so no headache to chose this restaurant.
I expected this restaurant to look more vegan from the outside but it looked so normal that I almost walked past it.
The restaurant itself was very crowded for a Monday afternoon so it was a little bit noisy.
The waiter is really friendly and attentive. I felt welcomed the moment I walked trough the door.
Once I received the meal which took a little bit of time which is mostly a sign for fresh cooking I was impressed by the taste.
Although I tried a lot of Asian vegan food this was something else.
I definitely will come back soon!
