Quan Chay Dam: A affordable vegan restaurant in Hoi An

Quan Chay Dam is my favorite restaurant in Hoi An! I stumbled upon this lovely place on Happy Cow and couldn’t wait to check it out. It’s a small, family-run eatery that offers rice, noodle soups, buns, vegetables, soy meats and heaps more.

The space

I really love the atmosphere at Quan Chay Dam. It’s a super low-key restaurant that’s usually filled with locals.

The buffet

The buffet was actually my favorite part about Quan Chay Dam. I am not a fan of mock meat and was so excited to see a great variety of vegetable dishes! If you pick something from the buffet it’s going to be between 20,000 – 40,000 VND. I always picked heaps of vegetable dishes and loved it! Pro tip: Simply tell her that you want food for a specific amount, for example, 25,000 VND. I always got heaps of food and never paid more than 25,000 VND.

What I ate

I ended up going to Quan Chay Dam every single day of my stay in Hoi An and absolutely loved it. The soy milk was my personal highlight. Someone on Happy Cow recommended it and it was indeed delicious. It wasn’t overly sweet, it was perfect! I also greatly enjoyed the steamed buns and everything else that I had.
