Even my non-veg friend loved it and wants to go back. Both items we tried were delicious. Relatively easy parking as they have a lot. Will be back, excited to try more from their menu!

Happy tongue, happy tummy

My Vegan sits a notch above the standard LA-area veggie Thai fare. Though the atmosphere is very casual, the food is nuanced and delicious. We were all quite pleased (even the non-vegans with us). The "chicken" satay appetizer and the curries (red, green, and yellow) are excellent. (We didn’t try any of the non-Thai items.) Nice to see that they’ve added a number of fresh and non-fried items to the menu, including a kale salad. And they make a good Thai iced tea. Great Thai food, ample parking and reasonable prices make My Vegan highly recommendable.

It could only be better if they made an effort to use organic ingredients.

Really good soup

I happened to visit Pasadena on a cold and rainy weekend and the tom yum soup and egg rolls at this casual place really hit the spot.

Fantastic Asian Vegan Food

This is my second visit and I had to try different items than before. I opted for the P. E. T. which is pumpkin, eggplant, and tofu—what a delight! I also got some miso soup and a new dumpling appetizer. Definitely worth coming here!

Love My Vegan

My vegan has been favorite for years. I love the tofu, fried of course. If you’re a fried tofu lover, you can’t really go wrong with many of their dishes. Personal favorite are P.E.T., golden curry, and buffalo drum sticks (although sauce is just vegenaise and sriracha, it works lol)

Pros: All vegan

Also, the pad thai too.

Pros: well priced, tasty, informative staff

Cons: out of desserts when we were there.

Sin duda será de mis básicos cada que vuelva a Pasadena #Veganuary

Was my go to standard

I highly recommend the Yellow Noodle Curry with vegan chicken!

It’s also right next to the Metro station for convenience.

It’s generally pretty fast when you call in for pick up.

Recent price hikes of about $4 per dish means I won’t be going as often. 😭

Does too much

I don’t understand how My Vegan is so consistently highly rated. I have given the Silverlake and Pasadena locations 3 chances, and each time did not have a good experience. I think the best options here are the Thai dishes. Their appetizers, spring rolls and dumplings, are great. But I tried their ribs—too heavy, could not finish them. Ramen—no flavor beyond a small hint of chili oil. Thinking I would go super basic, I tried the Pad Thai - too spicy to eat, could not taste any other aromatic flavors beyond “hot.” My partner got Pad Kee Mow, his favorite, and also wasn’t a fan.

I completely understand if this is a “me” thing and I can’t handle spice. But I like spicy food, and even with good food that’s spicy for me I taste other flavors beyond the heat. Maybe I hit them on bad days, but for me it’s 3 strikes, you’re out.

I think they try to do too much - burgers, sandwiches, Thai, ramen, random specials. If they focused their menu more they might have better luck.

Pros: Fully vegan

Cons: Haven’t had a good experience

Easy Vegan Stop

I wouldn’t go out of my way for My Vegan, but it is a good place to stop if you’re in the area. Friendly service, lots of options, and our food came out quickly.

Pros: Fully vegan establishment , Lots of menu items - very customizable , Fast service

Cons: Atmosphere is lacking

Blew me away! Shared a few things with the family. Highly recommend the spicy basil noodles and vegan beef jerky. Yellow curry and “soy chicken” satay were great as well.

Addicted to this place!

I love so many options here!!! I usually keep going back to the Spicy ramen, orange chicken, tofu and broccoli, the burger, or beef and broccoli. They usually throw in free rolls when we order a few different things.
Great place and I’d recommend anyone to go!

Avo for the fifth star

Love SoCal vegan Thai and love this place. As usual, expect to see chips and guacamole and some rando dishes on the huge, otherwise Thai, menu. They use a lot of soy meat replacements so the only thing that would have gotten the fifth star from me is if they’d offered avocado in any dishes, but especially as a substitution for meat replacements. I’ve been vegan 27 years and prefer plants / not products at this point. Otherwise the food is delicious! Yea, SoCal vegan Thai!

So so so so so good

I been here a few times and I love this place, the tacos are great, and all the faux “pork” and “beef” is done really well. The only thing I haven’t liked is the carbonara but that is likely just preference.

No sugar and oil option!

I am used to leaving restaurants either with a stomachache because of my food sensitivity to sugar or feeling lethargic because of the oily foods. I did not have both with the Vegan Dal dish! It was both tasty and clean. So I was made happy while eating and made refreshed after my finish.

Pros: Lots of healthy options, Tasty, Diverse

Delicious vegan food!

My sister (a gluten free pescatarian) and I (a vegetarian) were in the area visiting someone in the hospital and decided to have dinner nearby. I checked HappyCow and found My Vegan, and I’m glad I did! I had the stir fry vegetables with tofu and she had a curry bowl, and we both loved the food! The service was fast and attentive, and the ambiance is charming and modern, surprisingly nice for a little hole in the wall restaurant. The only downside is the bathroom, which is tucked in back next to the kitchen and was dirty and had a wet floor when I used it. But I’d definitely go back to try other things on the menu.
