Best Healthy Restaurants in Cardiff

If you have just moved to Cardiff and love eating out this is the blog post for you.

Today we will be looking at the best healthy restaurants in Cardiff and if you want to enjoy Cardiff's food scene while keeping healthy we recommend checking this list out. While writing this list, it's important to know that there are many healthy restaurants in Cardiff, but not all of them are tasty or offer good service or value for money. Our list combines all of the above so you can visit and eat at the best healthy restaurants in Cardiff.

Anna Loka Cardiff

Anna Loka is a Vegan Restaurant on Albany Road in Cardiff and while I'm not vegan myself I really enjoy eating at Anna Loka as it's a little different from what I eat at home.  Anna Loka is run by a Hare Krishna monk who saw a lack of choice of vegan food in Cardiff so in 2015 he opened is own restaurant, and what a success it has been. There are so many tasty vegan foods on the menu that talking about them alone isn't enough so if you want to try something a little different from what you are used to then check out Anna Loka.

You can find the Anna Loka restaurant at:

114 Albany Rd


CF24 3RU

Tel: 029 2049 7703

Crumbs Kitchen Cardiff

Before visiting Crumbs Kitchen in Cardiff I had been recommended it a few times by friends and family and I'm glad I took the time to visit it. Located in the Morgan Arcade, Crumb's kitchen is a family-run business that uses fresh and organic foods to create tasty yet healthy food. If you do go to Crumbs Kitchen it is easy to miss as the building doesn't stand out too much. But unlike the building, the food does stand out and if you want healthy food in the Cardiff City centre we highly recommend trying Crumbs Kitchen.

You can find Crumbs Kitchen at:

33 Morgan Arcade


CF10 1AF

Wild Thing Cardiff

If you want local food that is ethical, healthy and plant-based Wild thing in Cardiff is worth a visit. They open every day from 10am to 4pm while the kitchen closes at 3pm. All the items on the menu are suggested prices which means you can either pay that or what you believe the food to be worth. It's an unusual method of paying for your food but it goes along with their vibe of being ethical and organic. From beautiful pancakes to Salad bowls and Miso Squash Sarnies there is something for everyone here. The Menu in Wild Thing also changes every two weeks so there is always something to keep you coming back.

You can visit Wild Thing at:

Cathays Community Centre,

36-38 Cathays Terrace, CF24 4HX

Healthy Takeaway in Cardiff

If you don’t want to eat in any of the healthy restaurants in Cardiff and would rather order a healthy takeaway in Cardiff then here are a few of our favourite healthy takeaways in Cardiff.

Twisted Health Kitchen Cardiff

Twisted health kitchen was started when the owners realised that the majority of healthy takeaways in Cardiff were boring.  We agree too, there weren’t many healthy places to eat in Cardiff a few years back, but now we are seeing more healthy restaurants and takeaways pop up in the area and the Twisted Health Kitchen is one of the best in Cardiff.

Twisted health kitchen serves mexican style food that is much healthier than other local options.  You can choose from protein bowls, to a fit box and even burritos. One of my favourite items on the menu is the protein punch for one and it’s my go to when ordering healthy takeaway in Cardiff.

You can learn more about the Twisted Health Kitchen by visiting their website or placing an order on deliveroo.

Pho Cardiff

While Pho does have it’s calorific dense meals, there are some dishes on the menu which are healthy and lower in calories than your traditional takeaway.  When I eat at Pho or have a takeaway from there my go to dishes are either the garlic steak pho noodle soup (468 calories) or the chargrilled chicken rice bowl (609 calories) both are very tasty dishes for less calories than a burger.

You can order a Pho takeaway on deliveroo or if you are in the city centre you can find their restaurant at 5-10 Church St, Cardiff CF10 1BG.  For those not farmiliar with Church st the restaurant is close to the Botanist or Franco Manca.

Other healthy takeaway restaurants in Cardiff

Some other healthy takeaay options in Cardiff include sushi by Tenkaichi, Vyn’s sushi and The Magic wrap.  If you are looking to try some healthy takeaway try the above takeaways and let us know what you think of our suggestions.

Yo! Is located in St Davids in Cardiff and is both a healthy restaurant and a cheap place to eat.  As you can tell from this list I love healthy food and The Japanese food served at Yo! Has so many fresh ingredients it’s hard not to love the food here.  My personal favourites are the Chicken teriyaki bowl and I also love the edamame to snack on while i’m waiting for my main.
