Bangkok is known for its indulgences but the city’s healthy cuisine can be just as delicious. From vegetarian restaurants to organic salad bars, here are 5 healthy restaurants that let you dine out while nourishing your well-being and energy.
The 5 Best Healthy Restaurants in Bangkok
1. Pimp my Salad
Pimp my salad has become Bangkok’s go-to for nutritious, substantial salad bowls and healthy treats. All of their salad bowls are customisable and feature a wide array of hot and cold ingredients. These include meat options from chicken to salmon, to vegan-friendly choices such as cayenne grilled corn, smashed avocado and homemade kimchi. Moreover, they prepare ingredients fresh every day (most of which they make in-house) and source locally for the majority of their produce.
Alternatively, diners can choose from their set breakfast and an all-day menu. Signature favourites include the Cool Gai – coconut chicken with kaffir lime, chickpeas, mushrooms, Nam Jim Jaew mayo and brown rice (240 Baht). We also love the Hula Hula Tuna, a dish of tuna, avocado, edamame, carrot, kimchi and brown rice (380 Baht).
To end your meal, choose from their selection of “guilt-free sweets”. These comprise of 2 acai’s bowls (295 Baht) and their raw, gluten and dairy-free brownie (155 Baht). Their acai bowls can also be customised to cater to your palette and to drink with your meal they offer smoothies and coffee as well.
With a motto of “real food that’s nutrient-dense and jam-packed with flavour”; it’s clear why Pimp my salad are one of our favourite healthy restaurants in the city. They cater to all diets from vegans, gluten-free to keto and thus are accommodating to all.

Next on our list is Kauai, a healthy food joint nestled in Asoke Tower. As a restaurant, they strive to infuse the essence of a natural island lifestyle into all of their dishes, staying loyal to the brand’s vision.

Their Butta Chicken (270 Baht) is another popular choice – served with chicken, pumpkin curry, brown rice, quinoa and veggies.
For your daily serving of fruit, opt for Kauai’s juices, smoothies and smoothie bowls that are a must-try. They even have drinks that cater to specific health needs and concerns. For example, the Floo Shot, a zingy mix of ginger, honey, lemon and cayenne pepper (60 Baht) energises whilst building up your immune system. In addition, their protein shakes are a gym-goers dream, we especially recommend their Peanut Butter Bomb.

To finish your meal with a sweet treat, they have a range of creamy desserts to choose from as well.
