Plant is a genuine Vegan restaurant, where the food is tasty, well presented and varied, the non-vegans among us also loved it! All this in a warm ambience with great service.

Food was fresh and original. Great vibe with live band on the Saturday evening. However menu was a bit limited and there were no desserts. I was really looking forward to some nice vegan cakes and desserts.
