The 10 Best Vegan Restaurants in Bali

  • Bali is one of our favourite places in the world. After our first trip to Indonesia, we were beaming from ear to ear. It is such a beautiful nation which is full of character, kindness and inspiration.
Vegan Restaurants in Bali

And, believe us, Indonesian food – with its signature tempeh, rice, tofu, noodles, curries, and many vegetable dishes –  never leaves you short on vegan choices, no matter where you go.

To help you get the most out of your time in Bali and make sure you’ll find the most hidden, unique spots, here are our 10 favourite vegan restaurants in Bali:

1. Lazy Cats Cafe

Lazy Cats Cafe was one of the first places we went to – a restaurant that doubles as a café, bar and gallery. Definitely head there for the interior design, stay for their great latte and ambience! And we hate to give it to you, but they don’t have cats.

Their menu isn’t entirely vegan but includes many vegan options such as vegan tacos, burgers and hearty bowls. 

Must-tries:

  • BBQ Tofu bowl with BBQ marinated tofu, couscous, veggies and cabbage
  • Bali bowl with jicama, tempeh, peanuts yellow pepper, red radish and broccoli in orange sauce 
  • Vegan tacos with jackfruit, pineapple, onion, coriander and avocado sauce

Where?

Jl. Raya Ubud No.11, Ubud, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia

Price range: $

2. Kynd Cafe

Less of a hidden “secret”, Kynd Cafe is quite the Instagram hot spot. But they are “insta-famous” for a reason: an all-vegan menu featuring hearty salad bowls, protein-loaded smoothies and shakes, fruity smoothie bowls, waffles and much more. 

And above all, their vision is lovely: They say that by living a plant-based lifestyle you will not only make a positive impact on the plant but you will age slower, have way more energy and even look better naked.

Must-tries:

  • Bali Buddha: Greens, broccoli, chickpeas, lentils, carrots, slaw, cauliflower fried rice, oven-baked tofu, beet hummus
  • Caramel kiss waffles: house mad waffles with coconut icecream
  • Kynd big mac: double neat pattie, kynd secret sauce, sweet chilli, tomatoes, lettuce

3. Annie Pham

Not the most obvious vegan go-to, but the most lovely, accommodating owner, who went out of her way to “veganise” the dishes for us. Annie Pham offers Vietnamese food, which is often based on fish sauce, meaning that we couldn’t have anything from the menu. However, the lovely service, super cool interior (they have a concept store within the restaurant showcasing hand-made art from the island) and the owner’s charm will make you want to stay. 

Must-tries:

  • “Veganised” raw rice noodle bowl with shiitake mushrooms, tofu, cucumber, carrots and avocado

Where?

4. Verdant Organic Kitchen

Settled within a large shopping complex, this spot really surprised us. Their menu is made from local farming organic ingredients where possible and features countless vegan bowls, burger, raw wraps and rolls as well as guilty sweet treats.

Must-tries:

  • Vegan Buddha Bowl: Organic rice, tempeh, mushroom satay, baked pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, spinach crackers, carrot, cucumber, avocado and cashew nut sauce

5. Komune Resort

We had a fab vegan lunch at the Komune Resort’s beach bar. It was so hard to choose from their huge healthy vegan menu but we absolutely loved their Quinoa burger and Spinach fettuccine. Also, a great spot to watch surfers ride some pretty decent waves so make sure to check them out when in Bali. A bit more pricey than the rest of the island but definitely worth every penny.

Must-tries:

  • Quinoa eggplant burger: Juicy pattie with lettuce avocado tomato grilled onion served with eggplant fries and marinara dipping sauce
  • Vegan lasagna: Homemade mung bean pasta sheets layered over fresh roasted vegetables with a rich marinara sauce topped cashew cheese topped and served hot

7. Siboghana Waroeng

Siboghana is as authentic as it gets. This hidden Balinese restaurant is part of a family complex, with one of the probably oldest kitchens you’ll find in Bali, which also means that the food takes quite a while as everything is cooked to order. We went there several times, not only but especially for their homemade banana bread and Nasi Campur.

Everything on the menu is vegan and cooked in coconut oil with no MSG.
