best place in Saigon - Edit

We lived close to this place and we ate here everyday. They cook all from semi-finished products, which you can buy here too. All kinds of mock meat. Good choice for those who wants to get fascinated with realistic soy-chicken or seafood that looks like the real ones. It’s seems cheap but the size of portions is small. Also here is an ice cream, for 33000 van. Nice one.

great idea - Edit

You choose what you want to eat, vegetables, noodles and “meat” (Vegan) and they cook it for you or you can have a hot pot.
They also have a vegan soft serve yoghurt machine (but this was broken when we were there 😱).

Pros: choose what you want. Good value

great salad buffet, variety of vegetables - Edit

They have a make your own meal station where you can pick a basket, then fill it up with goodies like vegetables mushrooms tofu noodles mock meat, and then they cook it up for you in a dry sauce with soup on the side. You get charged based on what you have put in your basket. Not the cheapest meal in town but worth it for the luxury of making your own meal. They also have a really great salad bar, for 35k you can fill up a plate with as much salad as you can fit on there. There is also a menu you can order off, but for me the best was the salad bar and the make your own meal. Lots of vegetable choices, very fresh and really delicious too. Overall recommended, its not the cheapest, but it is not that expensive and well worth it.

Pros: lots of choice, nice veges

Cons: a little more pricey than some other chay places b

They could not serve the food I chose - Edit

I was asking for three different dishes from the menu and they said they didn't have them. I got pretty disappointed since I was going directly to this place and was hungry.
Somehow I also had the feeling that they did not want to start cooking the cheapest dishes (and the place was empty, only workers hang out).
I got sad.

Cons: I didn't get served

Awesome! - Edit

What an amazing place! We paid $5 All up for 2 massive self made meals. You just walk in fill a basket with veggies and noodles of your choosing and they cook it all up!

Bit of a language barrier but hand gesturing is your best friend and there's even a cute supermarket at the back with soooo many mock meats it's not funny including baby pig wtf lol tis also an alcohol free zone but didn't bother us!

P.s the satay sauce is basically straight up chili so use sparingly

Pros: 100% vegan, self serve, cheap

Cons: language barrier

Fresh food made to order - Edit

They have a buffet style stir fry station, where you pick ingredients, pay per ingredient, and they stir fry for you. A very large bowl of greens was 90,000 VND, and tasty! Burger was lacking in taste. Staff weren't friendly and seemed unhappy to be there.

Pros: Make it how you like it, Fresh produce

Cons: Unfriendly and rude service

Love Healthy Farm! - Edit

We discovered all-vegan Healthy Farm when we first arrived in Saigon and began looking for dinner. This place is outstanding and I wish we had one here at home! Cool concept - you come in and grab a little basket and fill it with the a-la-carte ingredients you want. Choose from mock-meats, mushrooms, veggies, noodles, and leafy greens. Hand over your collection basket full of goodies and they cook it right in front of you. It's so delicious - and don't forget to try the (soy) faux-chicken eggs. They are out of this world yummy!

Staff is very pleasant and there's also a store at the back of the restaurant so if you have a means of heating up food you can take some with you.

We went back to this restaurant several times. It was so good!

Pros: Food is fresh and delicious, Great concept for a-la-carte, Friendly people

Cons: Opens at 10 a.m.

Tasty - Edit

Pretty tasty food. Took a bit to figure out how the hot pot works, you choose your ingredients and pay per ingredient, and they cook it up for you. Makes it easy to get a big or small meal depending on how hungry you are, but price can rack up quite high if you really go for it (relative to local food prices). The vegan burger is a pretty tasty snack too.

So Many Options! - Edit

This restaurant is amazing. The variety of options on the menu is astonishing! Great food, nice and cosy interior and just an all-round nice atmosphere inside. I highly recommend this restaurant to any vegan/vegetarian travelling through Saigon.

Pros: good food, cosy

had 4 meals in one sitting - Edit

Delicious, I just wanted to stay longer and eat more.
Tried the egg, both burgers and the yoghurt, will come back if I'm in the area.
All vegan, lots of it. And build your own. Pick all your ingredients!!

Pros: all the vegan options, take home options, cheap

Cons: vegan egg not that special, some are quite small portions for price, pay as you buy, would be better at the end

Nice Frozen Yogurt - Edit

The frozen yogurt was actually good with reasonable price compare to many other non-veg frozen yogurt places, Thou I would be happier with more choices with flavour and toppings.
Haven't tried any of the savoury stuff, but it looks and smells amazing!

Pros: Only place with frozen yogurt and vegan

Cons: Too quite and needs music, needs more yogurt flavors and toppings?

Interest concept - Edit

Interest concept where you pick the noodles and ingredients then you hand them over to be boiled into a soup. There's also a store with a very interesting variety of mock meats.

30% off from 11 am to 1 pm - Edit

The veg burgers needed spicing, but the sauces were there. They burgers are rather small (see picture with the toothpick cup). They have happy hours from 11 am to 1 pm, you get 30% off the tab. Without the happy hour the burger would not have been worth it. They also have a rice burger, but they told me I had to wait circa 20 min for them to prepare it.

Pros: Happy hour (minus 30%) from 11am to 1pm, clean bat

Cons: The burger was smallish and didn't have any partic

AMAZING - Edit

This place is amazing and I had to stop by once more before I left Saigon. The food is incredible and so different to vegan food I have had in the past. They have a vegan egg which looks like a hard boiled egg and tastes just like one, but has a different texture. I haven't had an egg in three years! The rice burger is insane, it is these rice patties fried with tempeh in between, possibly the best Thing I have ever ate and completely unexpected

Love the choice - Edit

The idea behind this restaurant is fantastic: choose what sort of meal you want then choose the exact fresh ingredients you would like in it from their well-stocked fridge. All vegetables, noodles and mock meats have been pre-portioned so you can have many types of veggies, although their excessive use of plastic is not ideal. I chose the Thai hotpot, which sat bubbling away on my table as I gradually added my selected foods. The base soup was way too sweet, do this was a downer, but overall the price came out much cheaper than what many restaurants charge for a hotpot.
Make sure you add up how many ingredients you have chosen - I was overcharged on two different foods, which I was lucky to spot as the receipt was only in Vietnamese. The cashier was reluctant but did eventually give me a refund.

choose exactly what you want! - Edit

Really brilliant idea, pick the noodles, veggies, and mock meat you want and they stir fry it up for you. The sauce they stir fry it in is nice and not too strong. They have many sauces and a soup you can add for extra flavour to your liking! If you are in a rush you can also take it to go!
The location also has a small shop to buy mock meats, soups, and other things in the back.
Overall, good price and yummy!

Pros: you know exactly what you're getting, yummy and quick, good price

Interesting concept, good store in the back - Edit

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our experience here. The concept is new to me: you pick out everything you want in your dish (vegetables, mock meats, noodles, etc.), and then they stir fry it up for you fresh. It's a lovely idea. However, I honestly can't say the taste was amazing, but perhaps I didn't get the right combination of things. Still, for a totally vegan experience and a fun meal, I'd recommend it. Prices were quite cheap, too. And you can get vegan soft-serve ice cream after your meal! There's also a very extensive vegan store in the back that has all your normal vegan mock meats plus some exotic ones -- like duck and baby pig! Weird but kinda cool..

Pros: friendly staff, Unique concept, Fresh food

Cons: Noisy street, Small restaurant

nice - Edit

healthy farm is nice because you can make your own noodles.

You can choose the kind of noodles you like, the herbs, the veggies, the "meat", the mushrooms...

It can be cheap or expensive, depends how many ingredients you had.

Weird but good - Edit

Had a seaweed salad here and it was basically carrot, rice noodles, herbs and popcorn with sheets of seaweed to wrap it up in. Was tasty but a bit random.

Pros: Nice clean restaurant, Groceries too

Cons: Limited menu

Great concept and fun! - Edit

We loved that we could basically grocery shop for our own meal and have it cooked in front of us. Taste was average, you definitely need to add sauces to give it some more flavour. The staff could have been a bit more helpful and friendly. There was so much more that they could have sold to us & it wasn't until we started reading about the place that we realised there was so much more to choose from. The vegan egg was great and tasted just like the real thing!

Pros: Choose all your own ingredients and watch them coo, Healthy, Huge range or groceries for someone with kitchen a

Solid option! - Edit

Food taste really good. Not mind-blowing, but a solid option in a city with lots of street food that our American stomachs can't always handle. Some reviews complain of wasted plastic and bland flavors...both are true. You have to add extra seasoning yourself. And yes, everything taste the same, but we love being able to choose what goes in our meal and we love getting a huge variety of veggies too. Have gone back and will go back again.

Oh, and the ice cream was disappointing, but if you want a vegan frozen treat, at least it's an option here.

Pros: Huge variety of vegetables , Clean and fresh, All vegan

Cons: Wastes plastic , Flavors a little bland, No soap in toilet

good food, but they forgot about environment... - Edit

Very tasty food, but use very much plastics to pack all vegetables... and use the microwave to heat etc spring rolls.. would comeback again for pasta vegetable soup.
