We like to try vegetarian restaurants when we travel. This is one of the best I have tried. The menu is not huge. Try the Korean tofu dish; it had a little of everything in the bowl and was wonderful. My wife had the Uttapam which was cooked vegetables rolled up in something like a pancake. The chefs here can...

This restaurant is amazing. My husband is a vegetarian, I am not. We were both completed satisfied, if not blown away by the quality of the vegan food they serve here. The variety is great.

The flavors are rich and rewarding. With each dish, the flavors of real food rush your taste buds leaving you delighted and very satisfied. The plates are divided into small, medium and large portions going down the menu. My family and I will return in the near future. Highly recommended.

They had a nice wine special but .... $18 for a small salad shaped like lasagna... it was very tasty but still ... it's a salad. $10 over priced for that dish in my option. My friend had the tofu dish , clearly that was a better choice if you're actually hungry. The service was mediocre.

Found this place through a web search for vegetarian/vegan restaurants, although it was listed in an Asheville guidebook. Nice, relaxing atmosphere. Our server Mary was very patient explaining each dish and especially helpful in recommending something for a "first time" vegetarian diner. Portion size was very large. I had a hard time finishing my main dish; however, that did not... More

My husband and I tried Plant for the first time over the weekend. It was really good. We had the Farm salad and I must say that "bacon" tasted like the real deal, even though I was assured it was not. The Seitan Chili Con Queso was our favorite, but the Applewood Smoked Porto'House was great too.

Plant is an amazing find. We went on a Saturday night and it was packed, but we had reserved a table and were lucky to only wait for a short time. The menu gives a wide variety of choice - from Asian inspired dishes to completely new concoctions: we had the fried plantains, the grilled shishito peppers, the seitan chile... More

The food is a absolutely the best! I loved it! I will for sure come back again and again. Service was really good. Everyone is so nice! I'm vegan so it was perfect for me. My husband isn't and he also enjoyed the food and wants to come again! Thanks Plant for all you do!

I took my wife here for her birthday dinner while we were on vacation. This was hands down the best meal we ate during our 5 day stay in Asheville! I am a vegetarian who tries to eat vegan as much as possible, and my wife eats meat. We were both blown away at how delicious it was, and very... More

If you like great food you need to eat at Plant Vegan Restaurant! Vegan food is not always great but Plant's chefs do an amazing job of making great food that just happens to be vegan. Everything from appetizers to dessert was amazing! We ate once driving to Charlotte and rerouted our return trip to go back to Plant for... More
