L’Herbanyste – Bohemian vegan restaurant in Saigon


In the fast-paced city of Saigon, there’re many resorts with plant-based cafes and restaurants. However, just a few of them go fully green, and one is L’Herbanyste.

At this plant-filled villa, you can have a great time with your friend, while enjoying tasty vegan dishes. The Bohemian-styled dining space, plus a swimming pool, make you feel as if you were relaxing in a Balinese garden resort.

Situated in a villa in Thủ Đức City, formerly District 2, L’Herbanyste is like a serene tropical oasis with lots of evergreen plants and a swimming pool in the middle of its yard. You can let your hair down on the benches or sit in the cosy small bungalow next to the pool to feel the refreshing atmosphere.

A small bungalow space decorated in Bohemian style is also set up in the yard so that you can have some space for a private date in this calming and pleasant space. In fact, the owners of this place found the inspiration after their trip to Bali, Indonesia, hence the unmistakable vibe.


Western fancy food goes vegan

Founded by four non-Vietnamese, Corina, Georgiana, Tia, and Adrien, as well as being located in a neighbourhood where many expats and tourists reside, L’Herbanyste specialises in Western dishes. However, as the owners want the restaurant to be environmentally sustainable, they only use vegetables and plant-based condiments in the recipes.

At L’Herbanyste, you can find vegan pasta, toast, burgers, and many more. Of course, western wines, juices, and various vegan drinks are also available for you to choose from.
