Blessed. Thanks Planta. .

Had to do fifty words.


Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
Redemption songs

I can't get enough of Planta. Love everything I've tried so far, they were out of the dessert I wanted but then they treated me to some free truffles and the brownie I ordered instead was decadent and delicious, so no disappointed just extra chocolate. :)

The food was delicious, we hardly waited. The staff was super attentive, were able to answer all our questions.
I would recommend Planta for a dinner with friends, date night, just a good food place to eat.
You wont be disappointed, you just might have a hard time choosing what you want to order, as it all sounds and is delicious. The Pizza = Vegan LOVE.

Appetizers were outstanding, mains were a little underwhelming in portion and flavour.

Service was very poor, we were stuck at the restaurant for quite a while after asking for our cheques. The front desk lady actually come over to us and say she would cash us out because of the delay, which was the silver lining.

Always excellent food and service. We arrived a half hour early and were accommodated immediately. We were served by a personable waiter who asked about food allergies, which was most appreciated, the coffee was excellent! It’s always a pleasure to come to this location and I’m interested to see what the exterior renovations to the entire building will look like and whether they will still have a street window, urgently it is boarded up. The interior natural lighting in the restaurant is superb! The entrance to Planta is well marked and free from scaffolding thankfully, just a great place and my go-to anytime.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here. The front of the house took note from our reservation that it was a special occasion and seated us at one of the best tables! Marissa who took care of us, was knowledgeable about the menu and was attentive and also gave us privacy. We loved the food we ordered, particularly the crispy tofu, kimchi fried rice, lettuce wraps, charcoal sour and tart of gold! Some serious hits :) It was a great dinner, highly recommend!

Restaurant was very hot on a hot summer night. AC didn’t seem to be working. Even staff were fanning themselves with menus. Food was tasty but portions small and expensive. Not worth the price. Service was terrific however.

Unfortunately my husband and I did not love our experience at Planta. This was our first time there and we chose Planta to celebrate our anniversary. It is not often we get a night out without our baby and we were looking forward to it. We had to wait to be greeted by our server and for our order to be taken for both dinner and dessert for quite some time. We actually felt a bit ignored as we saw other parties getting seated after us being served their food before us. When dessert was brought out there was no anniversary wish or candle even though it was acknowledged at the start of dinner. The couple sitting next to us had the same dessert with anniversary wishes and a candle. We understand it's not the end if the world however we felt put off by that. The manager was aware of this and gifted us with a cookie. To be honest we weren't satisfied with how that was handled. My friendly and friends knew how excited I was to visit Planta especially knowing it was our anniversary celebration and I had to be honest with them and let them know how disappointed we were.

We had a lovely meal, and the service was excellent. The music was a little loud, but apparently that’s the vibe they’re going for. My date and I were celebrating 35 years of marriage so we really didn’t have to hear everything the other one said 😂.

It was my friends birthday and they gave us a free item off the dessert menu. This may be because our drinks took a while to get to us or because it was her birthday. Either way we enjoyed it!

Had a great experience at planta this evening ! The ambience is amazing. Great spot even for non vegans as myself. I was very impressed with the delicious dairy free desserts and the burger was great. They had a Dj who played excellent music and set an awesome vibe, it’s definitely a good place to hang out for an evening or before heading out somewhere

Great spot and creative menu.
Really enjoyed the experience.
Only one knock, the painted floor is pretty but not clean enough.
To get to the bathrooms up stair, you need to walk the path that the waiters use from the kitchen and it was very sticky. Both my guest and I noticed it independently
