Finding restaurants that deliver in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t an easy task. For vegans, that task was even more difficult due to the limited number of restaurants that offer good vegan options. 

Right now, while shops and restaurants are slowly opening up, they’re still operating at a limited capacity. As such, takeaways and deliveries are still preferred options for most of us. 

In this article, we’ll hit two birds with one stone: we’ll provide you a list of the best Vegan restaurants around Sydney you can visit, that also offer takeaways and deliveries.

Vina Vegan Restaurant

Newtown

Our friends at Vine Vegan were ahead of their time. Established in 2009, all they wanted was to make traditional Vietnamese cuisine healthier by going completely plant-based. You can now enjoy their Pho with vegan beef on-site (10 guests at a time!) or order takeaway or delivery via UberEats and Menulog. 

Hours: Wednesdays to Sundays, 4:30 to 8:30 PM
