If you eat Vegan and are in Asheville, please find Plant and eat there. The menu is endless so I ordered several things and left with box to go. If we did not get stuck in traffic the next day we would have returned for a second round of great food.

My husband's Raw Lasagne was very good and the appetizers as well. I ordered a Mexican dish that was a little heavy.

Thanks to my wife, we had learned about this restaurant, and were lucky enough to get a reservation last Friday (Oct 21st). From start to finish, we had a wonderful night. I must admit, I was a little uncertain, since I am neither a vegan or a vegetarian, but the flavors presented with the starter plates ( BBQ Okra and... More

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
