What a place! The best meal I have had for a very long time! Everything we ordered was just awesome. The red beets, their home made cheese and carrot cake will make your day.

One of the best vegetarian restaurants I've ever been to. Exceptional flavors prepared mindfully, beautifully, and creatively. You savor every bite. The only downside was the location on a busy road (thus the 4 stars, instead of 5).

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 is a small place and a bit upscale: it has a touch of class and elegance, meant for adults in my opinion. It might not be the best place to bring children.
