Nice and surprisingly interesting vegan food. Went with friends without a reservation, was seated nicely and had a lovely meal. Mushroom ramen, cauliflower steak and cauliflower crust pizza... all very tasty, satisfying and truly interesting.

I was in Asheville for business and was so excited to find this restaurant. A small but interesting vegan menu. I had delicious brussel sprouts and the chocolate cake was heavenly.

Plant's food is so sophisticated in taste and presentation that even confirmed carnivores will not miss the meat. It's small so reservations are recommended. The service is great and the food is an international fusion of flavor. Save room for the coconut milk ice cream...More

Ok. The menu choices were interesting and each of us chose something different. Our vegan friends really like this place. I thought it was ok but not as great as I had expected. My chile con queso was good. Plantains - I’ve had better. Place...More

Yes, there are plenty of gluten-free options on the menu. The items that are or can be made gluten-free are marked on the menu with an asterisk.

Yes. Risotto is usually a safe bet. I'm a vegetarian who absolutely hates tempeh but the walnut crusted dish is delicious. Your wife is lucky to be married to a vegetolerant guy like you!
