Planta was opened with the purpose of creating delicious food that promotes environmental sustainability. Under Chef David Lee, Planta aimed at filling a void in the market of upscale, full service, plant-based dining options. The restaurant's vision is to celebrate innovative cuisine in a beautiful environment without the use of any animal products. There’s more to responsible plant-based eating than just taking animals off the plate and our commitment to using high-quality products from ethical suppliers provides the foundation for our chefs to be proud of the food they serve.

Everything was fantastic in terms of food and vibe (decor, music selection). Unfortunately they were having a busy night and although we had made a reservation, we had to wait 30 minutes for our table. It’s understandable but unfortunate.

The absolute tastiest vegan and one of the best dining experience ever! One can basically pick of the menu blindfolded, it all tastes supremely good. Fusion at its best!

We were so impressed by Maki Monday! I didn't know what to expect because I'm not a vegan, I was worried we wouldn't be full... but wow! I was proven wrong! You need to eat here, the food is fantastic! Drinks are on point, location is super convenient, and the decor is beautiful! I will definitely be coming back here often!!

We went to celebrate my birthday. After sitting for 35 after ordering (and watching all of our dishes get served to the table next to us- who ordered well after we did) we finally got our slaw. Followed by the rest of our food another 45 minutes later. The food came cold when it did finally come. The server was unpleasant and always rushed when at our table- Which was infrequent and only if we flagged her down. The manager was pleasant and removed the cold dish from our bill as well as a couple drinks but we didn’t get even a birthday dessert as after sitting for 2.5 hours our baby sitter needed us home. Delicious food- service leaves a ton to be desired.

We had a reservation for 6:00 pm, but the table wasn’t ready until after 6:30pm. We made the reservation so that we wouldn’t have to wait.

The food was excellent. I had a reservation through open table, but I still had to wait for for twenty minutes. The place was packed, but they were understaffed for the amount of tables and people. This affected the service level.

Planta Queen is one of those restaurants where it is best to try a little bit of everything off the menu in order to receive the most comprehensive experience. We ordered Nori Crackling, Eggplant Unagi, Mushroom Bacon Inari, Peking Duck Skin, Spinach and Shitake Dumplings and the Tom Yum Noodle Soup. For dessert, my partner ordered the Forbidden Rice Pudding and I had the Niagara Apple Sponge Cake with Cardomom Ice Cream. We opted for non-alcoholic drinks: Harvest Mint Pluck Tea, Bodak Yellow fresh juice, and the Iced Tea. The juice, in particular, was as equally well thought out as the dishes themselves. Our server was attentive even as the tables started to fill later in the evening. They even served my partner a complimentary birthday treat on the house; a passionfruit pastille, plated with a candle and a volume-appropriate rendition of "Happy Birthday." It was the exact romantic outing we were hoping for. We will definitely be back to try a completely different combination of menu items!

Booked Planta Queen for my birthday - my boyfriend and I have eaten here before, and had a fabulous time yet again!
The food was fantastic, our server was very polite and fast - highly recommend trying Planta Queen if you haven’t!
Been vegan for over a year and this is the best spin on Asian cuisine I have had.
Thank you

For a vegetarian restaurant there is a shocking lack of vegetables in the dishes we ordered. One of the entire noodle dishes ordered was all noodles and about 5 small slices of mushrooms for about $20. There are more veggies available at your standard Thai restaurant dishes, and the quality here was nothing exciting. I really like the Planta in Yorkville, but this menu is a bust. Overpriced and underwhelming.
