Araya’s Place

As the first vegan Thai restaurant in the northwest—founded in 1987—Araya’s Place is well-established in the vegan Thai food scene. Family-owned and operated, they can accommodate every dietary restriction, as they make each dish to order. On the menu, they’ve got a wide array of options, including appetizers (like their Tofu Satay), traditional Thai salads and soups, 10 different curries, stir-fry dishes, along with a variety of noodle and fried rice dishes, plus, of course, sides, drinks, and desserts.

Bright Star Thai Vegan Cuisine

Rancho Cucamonga

Bright Star is a good vegan Thai option for those in or near the IE. They serve an array of typical Thai dishes made vegan, along with their own specials, which include appetizers, salads, soups, curries, noodles, rice dishes, and a la carte-style items, such as orange chicken and Kung Pao. Their menu is additionally highlighted by their lunch special option—available for many of their entree items—which then come served with a fried dumpling, salad, steamed brown rice, and miso soup.

Their extensive menu includes plenty of traditional favorites, including (but definitely not limited to!) Papaya Salad, Pad See-Ew, “Drunken Noodles,” and Tom Yum, as well as more unique finds, like their Curry Puff (Thai empanada), their popular Hot Wings, Thai spaghetti, and the vegan meat option of mock duck.

With the words “healthy, organic, positive eating” making up their name, H.O.P.E. in Studio City puts health at the forefront. Just a couple of the customer-favorite items on their all-vegan menu include their Yummy Wonton Soup, curries (which are made with no added salt), and their Beefless Garlic dishes. And if you’re seeking a variety, order their combo—available at lunch and dinner—which adds brown rice, a spring roll, and salad to your meal.

The sister restaurant of H.O.P.E. in Studio City, L.O.V.E. (stands for “love organic, vegan eating”) in WeHo shares a similar vibe, taking pride in serving made-to-order vegan dishes crafted with only the freshest and highest of quality food, free of GMOs, pesticides, additives, and preservatives. With a straightforward menu, the cafe offers a variety of traditional Thai dishes—including curries, fried rice dishes, noodle entrees, soups and salads—as well as seven different vegan sushi rolls.
