Vegetarian food in Shanghai is easy to find. Not only at the establishments specifically catering to vegans and vegetarians, but at the multitude of Asian eateries where you can find all-vegetable dishes. Thai, Mexican and some Middle Eastern dishes are also great for vegetarians. In short, Shanghai has something to offer the vegan and vegetarian where you'll stay healthy and happy while on vacation without compromising your morals.
The most famous place for vegetarian cuisine in Shanghai is the Gongdelin Vegetarian Restaurant. There are seemingly endless vegetable dishes to please the palate and keep you meat free.
The Tiffin Vegetarian Cafe and Vegetarian Lifestyle Restaurant are the two remaining vegetarian restaurants in town where you'll find ample supplies of food that you'll love, keep you green and make the animals happy.
Element Fresh and Hayas Mediterranean Restaurant are not vegetarian restaurants, per say, but the menu offers a wide range of meatless meals and side dishes. The hummas dip is to die for at Hayas and Element Fresh, and although you may see meat on the menu you sure won't care once you taste the veggie options.
Finally, Indian Kitchen and Simply Thai have several vegetarian items on the menu. You could eat a completely filling meal on the vegetarian options alone, and the ambiance and charm of these establishments would please even the most discerning guests.
