Finding menus to cater to different dietary needs isn’t the easiest. Over time, diets have been slowly changing thanks to more self-awareness on the effects food has on our bodies. While Singapore is not new to the concept of vegetarian food, it can be challenging to find places that offer plant-based options without having to resort to salads… eventually. Here are our choices of the Best Vegetarian restaurants you can find in Singapore. From their ingredients to cooking methods, these vegetarian restaurants take pride in celebrating a cleaner, healthier diet for all.

JOIE Restaurant - Vegetarian Restaurants Singapore
Key ServicesModern meatless cuisines
Address181 Orchard Road, #12-01 Orchard Central, Singapore 238896
Phone+65 9663 0901 (WhatsApp)
Operating hours12pm-3pm and 6pm-10pm daily

JOIE Restaurant is a vegetarian restaurant that challenges the misconception of meatless cuisine. Specializing in modern meatless cuisine, the restaurant offers a refreshing concept influenced by the new wave dining trend in Europe and Taiwan. 

The experienced chefs from JOIE have been perfecting this concept for the past few years. Following a famous set menu concept, JOIE combines a unique presentation with creativity and the use of many unconventional ingredients to offer diners two choices: an elaborately prepared six-course lunch, or a seven-course dinner consisting of contemporary dishes with Japanese-European sensibilities and flavours. 

Conveniently located in the busy Orchard shopping district, JOIE is a peaceful oasis surrounded by Orchard Central’s serene rooftop garden. Those inside can enjoy sweeping views of nearby Somerset and Orchard Road.

The restaurant’s ambience is chic and contemporary, with bronze light fixtures and a grey tiled floor. You can choose to sit along the plush leather-quilted banquette, in luxurious velvet armchairs, or in one of five private rooms (which seat four to sixteen people) at no additional cost.

Key Differentiators

  1. Award-winning restaurant
  2. Offers six-course lunch or seven-course dinner consisting of contemporary dishes with Japanese-European sensibilities and flavours
  3. Surrounded by Orchard Central's rooftop garden

Customer Review

Nice food, nice service! Definitely worth to visit again! The waitress will introduce every single dish when they served, and pay patient and attention to customer's need even it's peak hour at Friday night. Treat my friend a birthday meal here, restaurant provide a small cake and the waitress sing a birthday song to my friend. She also offer help to take a photo for us, 5 stars service! (thumbs up)

Thunder Tree is probably the only food stall in Singapore that offers a local-organic-farm-to-table concept. All of their ingredients are sourced from their own farm that practices organic farming, right here in Singapore. What’s more, the farm adopts plant-based farming where no animal waste is used in our agriculture process, so the food served, down to their ingredients, is 100% animal-free!

Thunder Tree serves food that is vegan-friendly and uses mainly organic ingredients. No alliums, no mock meat, no artificial flavouring and colouring are used in their cooking. With an aim to provide food that is accessible for all that nourishes the body and energises the mind, they promise that you'll be able to "eat with peace of mind".

Key Differentiators

  1. Uses mainly organic ingredients sourced from their own farm in Singapore
  2. No mock meat, no MSG, no artificial flavourings and colourings
  3. Most dishes are made from scratch yet reasonably priced such that everyone can enjoy quality food that is easily accessible

Customer Review

Best thunder tea rice I've ever had, the addition of black-eyed pea made it super yummy and it is the first time I've actually liked drinking the tea! We also snagged the last portion of abacus seeds for the day, which was super tasty and a definite must-try if you're lucky enough to get it. I can't figure out how to rate this on FB but it's five stars for sure!

Customer Review

Green on Earth was a discovery I made when I was looking for places in Singapore that serve vegetarian Mala, and I am so glad to have found it!

I have visited its earlier location as well as the current, expanded one. The space is big and has a nice setting. They have a very elaborate menu with a lot of dishes incorporating mock meat as and when needed. However, I am a sucker for Mala Hotpot and that’s what I get every time I am here. And, it doesn’t disappoint. They have a wide selection of ingredients that can go into your Mala, starting from bean sprouts to mock meats, from Maggie noodles to Udon Noodles. I always choose the spiciest level, as I am a firm believer of - if it’s not spicy, it’s not worth the oil that goes into making it 🙂

This place is my go-to, guilt-free, Mala eatery to enjoy some extremely delicious Vegetarian Mala Hotpot. I absolutely recommend it!
