Vegetarian restaurants in Bangkok cater to practically every variety of regional cuisine, with old stalwarts being joined by fancy new restaurants constantly. Most of the places in our list are completely meat and fish free, although some of these restaurants do keep a very limited selection of non-vegetarian dishes. Nevertheless, if you are a vegetarian, vegan, follow Jainism, or just fancy a healthy meat-free meal in Bangkok, these restaurants all deliver on taste, quality and style.
Na Aroon at Ariyasomvilla Boutique HotelSukhumvit – Ploenchit
