Devon Eatery Nabs Place on PETA’s Top 10 List of Vegan Chinese Takeaways in the UK

Devon – As the cold weather is setting in, prompting cosy evenings at home, PETA has rounded up the top 10 Chinese takeaways for vegan food across the country.

On the list is Devon takeaway Imperial Garden, which offers an abundant vegan menu with plant-based prawns, squid, chicken, and duck dishes. Offerings include sweet and sour vegan chicken balls, vegan king prawns with kung pao sauce, and vegan duck strip fried rice.

“These days, there’s an animal- and planet-friendly vegan version of every meal under the sun, so there’s really no excuse to opt for tired old fleshy fare,” says PETA Director of Vegan Corporate Projects Dawn Carr. “Every takeaway on PETA’s list is serving up innovative twists on classic Chinese dishes that are sure to please everyone, from die-hard vegans to sceptics alike.”

Other winners include all-vegan chain Wawin, which serves customers in Leeds, Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield, and York and dishes up a delightful Vegan Tiger Prawn Chow Mein as well as vegan versions of duck, lamb, chicken, and more; Noble House in Cardiff, which boasts expansive animal-free offerings, such as its Vegan Crispy Aromatic Seitan and an array of curries; Vegan Planet in Camden, whose standouts include savoury Peking Vegan Duck and tangy kung pao vegan prawn dishes; and Eastern Vegan in Reading, which offers up everything from vegan chicken legs to a crispy vegan squid starter.

In today’s meat, egg, dairy, and fishing industries, piglets’ tails may be docked without painkillers, chickens’ throats are cut while they’re still conscious, cows are forcibly separated from their beloved calves, and fish are cut open while they’re still alive. PETA notes that vegan foods have a smaller carbon footprint, as the meat industry is a leading producer of the greenhouse gases that contribute to the climate catastrophe. Eating vegan also lowers a person’s risk of developing heart disease and cancer.

Rounding out PETA’s list are China Express in Belfast, Cheung’s Vegan Kitchen in Bristol, Golden Dragon in Lincoln, Lucky House in Broadstairs, and Golden City in Huntingdon.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview For more information, please visit or follow the group on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
