Vegan Restaurants in Seoul

This is an overview of selected restaurants in Seoul, which offer 100% vegan products.

Locations are listed in alphabetic order and by food category, i.e. whether they specialize in Western or Korean food, rather than by rating or location. This is because in Korea, it is more common to choose what to eat first, and then people decide on the location of the meeting.

Below, there are brief descriptions of notable vegan locations, while highlighting their key characteristics and specialties for easy browsing.

Since taste is very subjective, the locations are not rated here.

In addition to the restaurants mentioned here, you can find more options along with personal reviews and ratings in my contributions on HappyCow. [BonBon is an active member with more than 100 reviews and 700 photos in total!]

For up-to-date info regarding opening hours and current menu, please refer to each location directly.
