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.

It is too noisy out there. I prefer energetic environment for a pub or bar, not for a nice sit down place

Intriguing and complex tastes, great presentation and interesting combinations. The dumplings are amazing. The eggplant dish was too salty, and we found that they didn't mark the spiciness level appropriately on their menu.

I dined at the Yorkvile location a few weeks ago... Amazing!

The menu changed and the dishes we selected were okay... with the exception of the pineapple fired rice... Delish!!!

I would still return, but next time I would review the menu online ... I was so looking forward to them”meat”balls and they were not offered today ... sadness

The food was amazing, a lot of flavour to all dishes. Unfortunately the service was very poor; especially when ignored for 30min at the end of our meal to get the bill. Restaurant was not busy at that time, we were just ignored. Not sure if I would go back.

I recently went to Planta Queen for dinner with a few friends and we had such a good experience! Our server, Kayla, was incredibly amazing, by far the best service I have ever received at a restaurant. She had a very in-depth knowledge of the menu and was able to make delicious recommendations for us to try. The food is meant to be shared among the table family style so you can try a little bit of everything which is great since everything on the menu sounds so good! We are celebrating two birthdays and Kayla made us feel so special, offering to take multiple photos of us and even bringing out a Polaroid camera to capture the moment. For birthdays Planta offers an add on option of chocolate cake that can be split between two people - it’s so tasty you can’t even tell that it’s vegan! We will definitely be going back soon!

I would recommend it as an experience. I think there needs to be some more options on the menu that have no grains as a garnish or topping as it was difficult to navigate the menu otherwise. I would also recommend using GF soy or soy-sauce alternative to appeal to more people seeking this choice.

My friends and I have gone to this location twice in a row now, solely for the udon noodles and potato truffle dumplings. We urge you to try out those two dishes:)

Kind staff! Great ambience! Great downtown location!

Service was very good but music too loud. Table too large for our party which made conversation difficult.
Even though the restaurant was not full, they would not accommodate our request for another table.
Did not help us to achieve our goal of an intimate family reunion dinner. Left feeling very disappointed.

Service was excellent and food was really good. We ordered six plates to share among four of us and it was perfect - food does come out very fast though so if you’re planning on a slow meal, order things as you want to eat them. We ordered all at once and we were in and out within 60 min for dinner.

The service was excellent - very attentive and the decor beautiful and soothing We shared 3 dishes, crispy snow pea leaves dumplings, bang bang broccoli and wild mushroom fried rice with shaved truffles. Everything very fresh, the bang bang broccoli was amazing and the fried rice was delicious. Would definitely recommend and try again.

Took a beautiful girl here that had wanted to go for quite a while.

Hands down the best vegan restaurant either of us had ever been to. The service was excellent, the vibe was perfect and the food was amazing.

Our next visit is already penciled in

I have been to other vegan or plant based restaurant and Planta Queen executed well overall. I had my doubts initially since most vegan restaurants’ offerings did not surpass a threshold that would convince an average diner it can be elevated to the same level as other non-vegan restaurants.

One advice I would give is if they can watch the saltiness level since some of the items we ordered were a bit salty. That is one drawback I find in vegan restaurants to offset the blandness of plant based food. They can play with other spices besides salt (or sugar) to enrich the flavors that they did for the other items in the menu.

It was awful. The food was super bland, watery.. very unflavorful. I don’t understand why this place has such good reviews.. it was less than mediocre.. I eat out quite a bit and have no problem spending money on good food. I was extremely excited to try this place as I’ve tried many plant based restos that are easily my favorite.. was extremely disappointed

This was the second time we went to Planta Queen . The food was not as good as the first time! They have changed the menu. This time there was a lot of spicy food and sweet. Don’t think we will go back again.

Absolutely love this restaurant! Not one dish disappointed. Especially recommend the bang bang broccoli, udon noodles, spicy "tuna" roll with ahi watermelon (SO COOL) and the potato truffle dumplings... But you can't go wrong no matter what! People with gluten intolerances should know that they have an amazing celiac menu - one of our guests is celiac and really enjoyed being able to eat amazing food without having to be concerned about contamination. Our server was very helpful and friendly and the ambiance is great!
