Are you bored with the same vegan food?
Here’s a list of mouth-watering Top 10 Vegan Restaurants in Mumbai you must try right now.
You will fall in love with Mumbai, irrespective of the reason you are here. Maybe just for a glimpse into the glamorous Bollywood industry, hopping the beautiful and enchanting Elephanta Island, visiting the Gateway of India, or simply enjoying the chaos of city life, it is simply a mesmerizing city or, as you call it, “a city of dreams”.
A few years ago, finding vegan-friendly restaurants would have been nearly impossible, but that has now changed with the growing vegan trend and conscious eating habits.
Presently, we have a few cafés reclassifying the idea of eating tasty and vibrant vegan food, which are surprisingly also healthy. So, if you are a vegan living or visiting Mumbai, there’s much to cheer for.
Even non-veg lovers should accept that delicious vegan food prepared at these vegan restaurants would be more satisfying than ‘Chicken Biryani’ or kebabs. So if you are a vegan or want to try vegan food, here is the list of my favourite top 12 vegan restaurants across the cosmopolitan city. So here I am with a long list of the top 12 vegan restaurants in Mumbai.

As the name suggests, GoodDo is another good restaurant serving yummy vegan options. This vegan eatery has several branches in the city.
While I visited the outlet in Bandra, I ordered “Vegan keema Pao” and cold coffee. Before I ordered it, I was a bit sceptical about how vegan keema pao would turn out to be. But damn! The texture of the keema was meaty, and it was beyond my expectations. For meat lovers, this is a must try!
The one thing that I loved most about this eatery is that they made veganism convenient and accessible to everyone by maintaining a reasonable price. So hey, if you are planning on budget snacking and are craving a delicious vegan meal outside, then this is a place to go; it won’t leave a hole in your pocket.

Nara Thai is an Asian restaurant that also serves some fantastic Thai options. This place is partially vegan, and you can opt for vegan options while ordering from the menu.
I tried their Tom Yum soup which consisted of spicy lemongrass and lime, with vegetables in it. And then ordered an appetiser named ‘Mieng Taohu”, this main dish ingredient was fried tofu with added cashew nuts, roasted coconut flakes, chilli, and betel leaf served with sweet tamarind sauce in andam cup.
And also try the 'Khanom Nung Sai Tao Hu Lae Broccoli' which is broccoli and tofu dumplings. Honestly, I loved it all!

This café serves some fantastic Vietnamese food which is very vibrant and flavorful.
I tried edamame dimsums, seared Brussels sprouts, and Vietnamese pizza. The restaurant sets itself apart from the same old pan Asian restaurants. I loved all the dishes I ordered, especially the pizza!

Well, this café does that, and I loved the concept. It’s incredibly creative and transparent on how healthy the dishes on their menu are.
I tried their falafel wrap, which is made by the staple middle eastern chickpeas, and the filling was seasoned with cumin, coriander powder and sunflower oil in the wrap, which was served with tahina sauce and some yummy crispy fries.
It was flavorful and delicious. But, I wanted to try out something more, so I found their “DIY Salad bowl” on their menu and asked them to bring the customised salad bowl I wanted. And the ingredients I had to choose from was a lot, and some section was categorised according to the protein quantity the ingredient contained. Amazing right!
After I got the bowl, this place had my heart. The bowl looked healthy and was beautifully presented. The taste? It was the a delicious and healthy salad.
This place serves dishes worth every penny, and the portion size of the dishes are fantastic, and their service was excellent. So now, whenever I crave some great Lebanese yummy food, this place is my to-go place! I will highly recommend this place if you fan Lebanese food and have decided on veganism!

This place had my heart with their date walnut ice cream. It was sugar-free and had decent fibre for ice cream. Yep! Ice Cream is healthy in this place.
However, I also parcelled chocolate chips ice cream. Well, it tasted even better than the traditional ice cream. I loved it! If you are also a fan of desserts and ice cream like me, then trust me, this place will never disappoint you. I highly recommend it!
