Good for an evening meal - Edit


Directly opposite Phounsub restaurant and directions on Happy Cow are accurate.

Quite reasonable, simple food at low to moderate prices (85,000 for three people). Stays open later than Phounsub so maybe better to go in the evening to this one.

Pros: Reasonable, simple food, Cheap, open in evening and easy to find

Our favourite place in Vientiane - Edit

We really enjoyed the food here- lots of fake meat but very tasty, we especially liked the peanut sauce roast duck. The staff were really friendly and helpful and there are some vegan snacks you can buy to take away. The food seemed fresh and in the evenings they make noodle soup in as big pot out the front. We ended up back in Vientiane a second time and couldn’t help but go here again.
Afterwards you can pop across the road for a coffee and cake at the new vegan coffee shop!

Yummy and cheap - Edit

Food is very cheap and tasty! Was a little bit disturbed by some of the choices on the menu (fish womb soup) but was reassured it was all vegan, all fake meat and fish. I had the pineapple fried rice which was delicious and also tried the fried chicken which was very yummy and 100% vegan!

Pros: lots of vegan options

Cons: slightly disturbing menu

Good food for good price - Edit

Felt kinda uncomfortable with the menu (as the duck and chicken dishes are veganized but still named as such). Ordered 5 dishes which came to $10 total and filled two hungry stomachs. Will come back when I'm in town again.

Pros: vegan, tasteful, variety

Not tasty - Edit

I found the good reviews so I tried here, very disappointed with the taste. I tried many kind of food but only Phoe Lao and papaya salad are good, the rest I couldn't eat them.

Really Disappointing - Edit

I wanted to check this place out based on mostly good reviews but I have to say I was very disappointed. The food was bland (I had the tofu and basil - it was literally just that, no other veg like in the pictures) and the atmosphere was non-existent. I wasn't served any green tea whilst waiting, as suggested in pictures, and instead was sat in silence bar the clock ticking whilst the 3 members of staff just played on their phones. Some of my tofu was cooked some of it was just fresh slopped out of the packet. There also wasnt really much for me to chose from as even some dishes on the vegan menu arent vegan and there are a lot more meat options! Really disappointed with this one :(

Over Rated - Edit

I was so excited to find a vegan buffet in overpriced Vientiane. But, sorry, I was very disappointed with this place. The food was average to say the least and everything but the rice and soup were cold (was there at 11.30am). The dishes are served in Bain Marie's but with no heating elements.
I ended up eating a rather large handful of the fake pork crackling and a few of the rice paper rolls as they were the only thing with any taste. Disappointed.

Pros: in a back street so I enjoyed the adventure to fin, vegan, so cruelty free

Cons: if you don't have a map you will get lost!

Amazing Vegan food - Edit

Lovely little restaurant in the middle of Vientiane, although hard to find it's worth it!
The faux meat is great, along with all the salads (papaya very spicy)

Pros: Amazing value for money, Staff are super cute

Cons: Hard to find, Lack of English

Adorable, Cheap and Tasty - Edit

The food was good, so cheap and totally vegan. So nice to be able to eat local food that's also vegan ( so much of the time my vegan finds are western focused). Will be coming back here for lunch for the entire duration of my stay in Vientiane :)

Pros: pad thai

the extensive menu is in both English and Lao and the majority of the menu prices range from 15,000 to 30,000 kip ... the quality and quantity of food are both good ... staff are very friendly but have limited English but ordering is not a problem as you can just point to menu items ... Happy Cow map and directions are accurate

Pros: cheap food and extensive menu

Cons: none

Yummy - Edit

I ate here shortly after my 80km bike ride into Laos. The menu is vast with many styles of food to choose from. I chose the papaya salad and a yellow noodle dish. Both had fast turnaround and exploded with freshness! In total it cost 30k kip for two meals; not bad.

Pros: Polite patient staff, Tastes fresh

Wonderful food! - Edit

I'd ate a delicious "duck something" and mixed rice with tofu.
The staff are really friendly, so they'll help you to order, also they didn't speak a good English, but it's just a detail, because I can not speak Lao.
Everything is made by vegetables, the name of the dishes "duck, chicken, pork" is just about texture and taste of the food.

Vegan food!

good food and budget friendly - Edit

The restaurant is small, clean and cozy. The staff was nice although they didn't speak any English.
The food was good, yummy and filling.
They have many vegan options but on the picture it looked like the Pad Thai might have egg in it and they have a salad with mayonnaise so think of that while ordering.
It's really close to my hostel and there's more dishes that I want to try so I will go there again for sure!

all vegan - Edit

We came here with a bunch of people from our tour group during a night off as it was close to our hotel. The staff was friendly and helped us order. One group specifically requested mild dishes and while our group wanted spicier, it was mild as well. Maybe they assumed we all wanted it that way. In any case, it was a good dinner as everything was vegan and reasonably priced. We got the drunken noodles, tofu with basil and morning glory.

Pros: all vegan, nice staff

Big portions and good vegan items selection! - Edit

We are was here on october 2015, menu was large, included many photos of food. Prices is not so cheap for this type cafe. We are order som tam salad, japanese rice and curry - all was ok, but som tam in lao style was amazing!

Owner was very friendly and she say that all dishes not contain dairy or eggs. Good selection vegan items for take away: nori sheets, wakame, spices, sauces, vegan snacks and jay mayo, but prices highly then in thai cafe (because import from Thailand). Good place!

Pros: Big portions, Good vegan items selection, Friendly owner

Not really a vegan restaurant, or even friendly - Edit

I was under the assumption that the cafe is vegan, but it was actually not vegan at all and barely even vegan friendly. The two workers didn't speak a word of english including the word 'vegan', and besides the words "Happy Cow" on the menu, it had no indication that something on it was vegan.

We ordered 2 dishes of rice noodles, both were pretty bad.

A little bit remote but nice - Edit

Tom kha soup was quite tasty although I'd prefer more mushrooms and tofu to that mock chicken of theirs. Pad thai was good enough, maybe a bit too sweet. No baguettes as far as saw. Prices are quite low but remote location makes it somewhat less so if you need some kind of transportation to get there. Menu in English, menu with pictures, simplistic interior, stuff understands keywords and gestures. Good for those used to cheap vegan food in Thailand.

Is across Phonesub buffet but opens earlier.

Pros: lots of stuff, cheap

Cons: remote

Lovely quaint Vegan /'jai'' restaurant inVientiane - Edit

As other reviewers have pointed out, the restaurant is heavy on mock meats (quite common at Asian vegan restaurants). However the menu is cheap and extensive and the food was very tasty. They're open 8am-10pm, great for travelers. They have an English menu as well as a large picture menu which is helpful for picking out food. Owner/waiter was lovely and friendly despite the language barrier. FYI, This is a local hole in the wall type of restaurant in terms of ambience.

Pros: Relatively easy to find, good prices , big selection

Cons: No English spoken

Nice if you like meat - Edit

Most of the menu is mock meats so not great if you're like me and don't like meat! That said I got the braised tofu and it was tasty. Nice little place, the lady that was working was really sweet.

Pros: Extensive menu, tasty

Cons: Too much mock meat, no English spoken

Tasty mock meats - Edit

First when I went there I didn't feel like eating there because all the meals were called real meat names like fried chicken or roasted duck. It was hard to imagine what kind of meal I would get but then they gave us the menu with the pictures and that helped. And the guy working there came to us and explained that everything is made out of mock meat and these are just the names.
The food was tasty but for me personally it reminded of meat too much. But if you like mock meats I am pretty sure you will like this place ;)
