One minute review: Maha Vegan


Address: 16 Pasteur, Nguyen Thai Binh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City 700000

Food type: Vegetarian Vietnamese, not vegan as the name of the restaurant would suggest as many dishes contain honey.

Taste: 7 / 10 stars

Variety of dishes: 6 / 10 stars. The menu is really wide but not very innovative. You can find fresh rolls, fried rolls, salads, noodles, rice, and hot-pots but many with flavours that are very common. Most of the dishes are made with mushrooms.

Price range: 65K-160K VND

Cleanliness level: 8 / 10 stars

Organic: no

Dietary requirements catered for: vegan, nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, soy-free.

Negative points:

  • many dishes with honey and some that mention cheese but not sure if nut cheese or other non-vegan cheese,
  • hard to communicate with staff,
  • use plastic straws,
  • refined grains used in all dishes but one (rice paper, rice, noodle),
  • no pictures of the dishes on the menu,
  • many misspellings on the menu.

Positive points:

  • very nice restaurant,
  • quick service,
  • menu in VN and EN,
  • tasteful decor,
  • flavourful foods and drinks,
  • brown rice available,
  • quiet location.

Watch out for: honey and possibly non-vegan cheese

Don’t miss: clay pot mushrooms and fried brown rice, very delicious
