More Frequently Asked Questions For Vegetarians & Vegans in Dubai

Is Dubai Vegan Friendly?

You might be surprised to find how vegan-friendly the city of Dubai can be – of course, you still need to be careful with your choices. Being such an international city though there is such a wide variety of cuisines to choose from, most done to a very high standard!

There are two restaurants presently purely vegan in Dubai – Just Vegan (their original restaurants – note they franchise/partner with non-vegan restaurants to bring a vegan portion to the menu) and Wild & the Moon (There used to be Super Natural Kitchen too but they’ve since shut down).

Is it easy to find vegetarian food in Dubai?

With such a multicultural population, it’s not hard at all to come across great vegetarian dishes in Dubai. Purely vegetarian and vegan restaurants are harder to find, but certainly not impossible across a huge range of cuisines, as we’ve shared above in this article. You’ll find many, many restaurants in Dubai that offer far more appealing vegetarian options than ‘just salad’.

Is Dubai a vegetarian country?

No, the traditional bedouin diet includes meat, but modern Dubai is a fusion of cultures with a strong Indian and Asian subcontinent influence meaning it’s not difficult to find vegetarian dishes. The city’s dining scene is very vegetarian-friendly. As we’ve outlined here, you can find many restaurants that are exclusively vegetarian and plant-based in Dubai, even some vegan-only restaurants. (And note, Dubai is an Emirate and a city, not a country!)
