I found it very difficult to locate gluten-free and vegan meals and restaurants in Oahu. I predominately observed meat dishes, fish dishes, and french fries. I saw a lot of restaurants serving fish and meat dishes without a side of vegetables or fruit.
Before this trip to Hawaii, I was interested in living in Hawaii, but I would find it very difficult to follow a vegan and plant-based lifestyle. I’m looking forward to planning my next adventure, and it will have a lot of vegan options to offer all of us.
I enjoyed working on this post with the best vegan options in Oahu. I hope you find it helpful.
Loving Hut – 1614 S King St, Honolulu, HI 96826
The loving hut is 100% vegan Thai cuisine. And, many of the dishes are gluten-free and made with tofu. The menu is limited, but they offer a variety of dishes. At the time of this post, Loving Hut offered to do take out which is nice if you want to enjoy the beach nearby.
You should find street parking. And, it’s walking distance to most hotels in Waikiki and Ala Moana Beach Park.
The Beet Box Cafe – 66-437 Kamehameha Hwy #104, Haleiwa, HI 96712
The Beet Box Cafe is 100% vegetarian, and they offer a lot of gluten-free and vegan options. They provide fresh produce, and most of it’s organic or local. The smoothies are very filling, and the raw treats are delicious. If you are staying near North Shore, I recommend The Beet Box Cafe for breakfast and lunch.

Lemongrass Vietnamese And Thai Cuisine – 20 Kainehe St, Kailua, HI 96734
If you drive to North Shore from Honolulu or Ko Olina, you’ll find desolate areas and very few vegan options. You can consider Lemongrass which offers Vietnamese and Thai cuisine, and they offer vegan options. The menu is extensive, and you should find street parking nearby. It’s a quiet place off the main road, and it’s easy to find.
Noe At Four Seasons Resort Oahu At Ko Olina – 92-1001 Olani Street, Kapolei, Hawaii 96707
Noe serves Italian cuisine and is the most romantic restaurant in Oahu. It faces one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Most of the dining tables are outside, and they offer beachside weddings and receptions. Noe offers a separate vegan menu and a fair amount of gluten-free options. I strongly recommend a dinner reservation before arriving in Hawaii during peak season.
