Louisville, Kentucky's largest city, is an unexpected gem in the usually-omnivorous cities of the Midwest. Its vegetarian and vegan fare stretch far across the city, from all-vegetarian Asian fusion, to smaller, ethnic cafés based on Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. Try Zen Garden, one of Louisville's all-vegetarian Asian restaurants, or, if going out late with friends - Swan Dive, an all-vegetarian bar tucked into Louisville's Germantown neighborhood. Ramsi's diverse menu will satisfy both the herbivore and omnivore in your group with its world-inspired food. For a more ethnic feel, try Simply Thai, located in St. Matthews, or Dakshin - a highly vegan-friendly Indian restaurant. For grocery shopping, local health food stores Amazing Grace and Rainbow Blossom offer all the vegetarian staples as well as other local items.

Everytime I pass through Louisville I have to eat at the Zen Garden. It is by far one of my favorite veg spots I have ever come across. The sweet and Sour Crispy soy is marvelous! It has such a nice and quaint atmosphere. It is pretty small but if you go at a descent time it is not too crowded. The food always taste fresh and is very well prepared.

I have never been there and had a poor experience. The servers are always nice and they have tasty smoothies and blended beverages as well. It is kind of hard to get to and the parking can be sparse, but like I said it is always worth the trip there.

I just ate at this restaurant and it is the best Asian food I have had in a very long time! Their Sesame Tofu was really good. My husband had Veggie Sushi which was also excellent. Its a little hard to find because its set back a little from the road.
