amazing buffet - Edit

definitely come for the buffet. it's inexpensive and you get a variety of food that's not available on their regular menu. they are 100% vegetarian with non vegan items marked and when I've been all their buffet was vegan (no cheese or eggs). they also sell some veg products that you can take home.

Pros: Buffet , large menu

Not vegan and not healthy - Edit

I visited there last Sunday, based on several good comments on internet. I expected a non-vegan vegetarian menu, as read online, but didn't know that one option was a buffet.

The buffet was non vegan. I don't understand why. Just some eggs on the vinaigrette, and cheese on the side. It is so easy to replace by vegan cheese, or no cheese at all, and a vinaigrette definitely don't need eggs.

The soup was great. The rest was ok in term of taste, but I could immediately smell, taste and see it is not at all organic. As the juice that I didn't drink more that a sip, the ingredients used are low quality, even possibly genetically modified.

Veganism is a choice for animal respect, not for health, still, if cheese is used then lead to animal suffering and murder, and the food is not healthy, what is the aim of being "vegetarian"?

Pros: Excellent soup, Reasonable price for a buffet, Friendly staff and owners

Cons: Quality of ingredients, Non vegan buffet, Disappointing juice

RobertLim 21 Oct 2017 - Dear veganBirder,
Sorry to hear that but we do not use eggs in all our cuisine especially vinaigrette. surely you must have been misinformed. for the cheese section ..we have an option vegan cheese & cheese for the vegetarians..located near the salad section,,our food are 50% vegan and 50% vegetarian, we never advertised our food as organic,even though most vegetables coming from the local market are mostly organic. as for the juice ..we also have vitamin water with cucumber (alkaline) & plain purified water.

Savior in meat city! - Edit

Been going to Cebu city on and off for work and I had always been disappointed with the food options. I'm so happy I found Planet Vegis! 95% of their dishes are vegan. I think only 4 items on the menu are vegetarian. They also are conscious of gluten free options. Food is great, you can tell it was prepared with love. Customer service is also awesome. Lunch and dinner buffet available for a steal!

Pros: yummy food! wide array of options, comfy set up

Cons: can be hard to find, suggest uber it so driver has, they have signs near the area to help locate the r, no credit card payments yet

One of the best! - Edit

Plant Vegis is one of the best vegan/vegetarien Restaurant we have been to in Southeastasia and truely the best in the Philippines. The food is high quality, good amount and the taste is wonderful. They have all-you-can-eat buffet on Saturdays and Sundays for only 200 Pesos. The staff and owner are very friendly people always looking after you. The ambient is clean and calm. I am so glad we found this place?

Very good vegetarian restaurant! - Edit

The place was right in the same block as my guesthouse so I rushed out to try it out and wasn't disappointed. The selection of food and drinks was huge and the food I ordered was one of the best of my whole stay in the Philippines. Unfortunately could come here once only.
Next time in Cebu I'll visit here again!!

plant based oasis - Edit

great plant based menu in a friendly environment. buffet on weekends is great value at 249p inuding bottomless healthy vegan drinks and also a broad choice of vegan and vegetarian meals. thumbs up this place is a blessing in a country where it can be challenging sometimes to find quality, tasty msg free vegan food at reasonable prices

Pros: lots of vegan options reasonable prices moringa

Cons: might need gps/ map to find it first time

Definitely recommend - Edit

Went three times as it was nearby on my short stopover in cebu - what luck! Not every dish is a winner, but there are so many fantastic choices. Stick to the chi/phil dishes, less impressed by burger. Last night in cebu brought three friends - all agreed it was a fabulous meal. Sometimes they do buffet which looked great. Also, consistently good music. If you've no idea about what to order you can pretty much choose randomly three things and have a great meal.

Pros: A gem in cebu, great veg option, A friendly owner , Nice ambience

Cons: A few misses on.the menu...

Really yummy fake meats - Edit

The opening hours need to be updated because we arrived at 4 pm and it was closed but we received a FB message saying they opened at 5pm and returned and it was worth it.

It was a pleasant atmosphere, the barbecue is outstanding with a lovely unusual sauce. The Lumpia was the best I've had, like a spring rolls with an unusual stuffing. We had another fake meat dish and a dish of very crispy things which was good.

The Guyabano shakes were really a lovely local sour sop drink. It's well worth the price, tasty and a brilliant introduction to the local cuisine.

Pros: one of the best barbecue dishes , nice atmosphere, good tasting food for the money

Cons: opening hours not clearly marked

Regular customer - Edit

At first glance on the menu I thought it was not an "absolute" Vegan restaurant. I ordered Vegetable biryani, Beef Biryani, and Chilli Mandarin, that was suggested by the owner. Here is my review. I did like the Vegetable Biryani and beef biryani. My only criticism is the use of "fake meat". It seems to be a real vegetarian restaurant but t entirely vegan, although there are vegan dishes

This is an updated review. I grew accustomed to the fake meat. It's a good alternative for once meat lovers turned to vegetarian or vegan due to the pressure of PETA.I'm kidding about PETA. One has to try their Tofish, Shrimp Walnut, Chicken nuggets, Humba, and the best Chinese Ngohiong I have ever tasted. May I suggest you end your meal with a banana split and Durian Coffee. I have to warn you that the Durian coffee has a Ritalin effect :) It enhances synaptic transmission three times better than regular brewed or instant coffee.

Pros: Good price and quality, Nice old Spanish music , Friendly Atmosphere

Cons: Uses fake meat

RobertLim 15 May 2015 - The "fake meat" is a tofu based w/flour mix..but will improve more accordingly, thank you so much

Second Landing - Edit

It was late. And all of us in the family came from work. No cooked food at home therefore, the decision was made.

DINNER AT PLANET VEGIS!

It was my first time to have ala carte meals there so I decided to try a few dishes.

Rice, of course, is available from plain white, brown, and biryani. The biryani is the bomb! Its not too spicy not to strong to the smell also. Its just right.

For those who love grilled meat, the barbecue is a perfect choice. You wouldn’t guess it isn’t meat from how juicy and tender it is. The marinade and the sauce suits the pinoy tongue as it is sweet and savory at the same time.

image

A healthier version of the cholesterol-laden sisig is here! Tofu sisig! I guess it doesn’t sound appetizing but allow your tongue to judge. The dish is perfectly seasoned and has that kick from the chillies we all love from sisig.

image

Mixed mushrooms on the house yo! Why am I so excited with this? Because usually, this dish is flavored with oyster sauce. But guess what? Planet Vegis make their own pseudo-oyster sauce. Out of what? They won’t tell. O.o

image

For dessert we have Knicker Bucker. Its a tropical fruit mix with colorful gulaman drizzled with their special cream sauce and 2 scoops of ice cream – strawberry and vanilla. Need I say more? It’s fruits and ice cream! A great end to a gastronomic journey.
