Super fast

Takeout style burgers, with crinkle cut fries. Tasty fried mushrooms and tofu burger. Generous portion of fries included in the price.

Pros: Quick, Lunchbreak

Excellent food!

Best Caesar salad I've ever eaten!
Also their milkshakes are not too sweet, I highly recommend the place!

Nice joint but would avoid the tofu slab burger.

Me and my partner went to planta and I was gagging for some food because we hadn’t eaten anything proper all day. I ordered the Kentucky burger but it was basically a couple of seasoned tofu slabs with some breaded mushrooms and some sauce, edible but I wouldn’t have it again. The chips were great as was the double chocolate milkshake. My partner has the classic burger which she enjoyed. I had a bite of it and wished I would have had it too. Would visit again but avoid the Kentucky burger. Fair priced and great location.

Pros: Full vegan menu, Fair priced & great location, Fantastic oatshakes

Cons: Avoid Kentucky burger unless you like tofu steak

Good location but underwhelming taste

To be completely honest, their burgers weren’t my favorite. I found that they did not have the best taste (it could be my own preference but I wasn’t a fan of the flavors they experimented with). Their milkshakes were yummy and they are perfectly located with a patio for the warmer weather.

Pros: great milkshakes, good location, patio for the warm weather

Satisfying Fast Food

I had the southwest burger and it was pretty good and filling. I also had the banana, date and tahini smoothie and it was okay. I haven’t been to the other Planta restaurants to compare but it’s a cute little place. I would definitely return!

Under expectations

Before my Toronto trip “Planta” was a trademark coming up in all reviews. But when visiting Planta Burger the difference to the other Planta restaurants was more than obvious. My expectations was far over what I received. This was the black sheep of the Plantas.

Pros: The burger was 4 points - good, Nice outdoor area, nice location

Cons: Why all these plastic?, Why, why industrial fries??

Yummy vegan burgers

A nice vegan burger place, we tried 3 different burgers. All very tasty. The truffle burger was good as were the truffle fries it came with. I would eat here again when I was in the mood for a burger.

Pros: All vegan

Cons: Pricey for burgers

Pretty okay burger

Some inventive stuff but nothing amazing burger wise. Would 100% go back again when I’m hankering for a burger though. The milkshakes were AMAZING though along with their cheese fries! Overall hit the spot.

Pretty decent burgers

After visiting the main Planta restaurant on a recent trip to Toronto, I decided to head to Planta Burger for lunch. The options for reasonable. Just a bit more scaled back from the main restaurant. I had the Kentucky burger and was a bit less impressed than when I went to the main restaurant, but it was still decent.

Pros: Reasonable options, Fries were cooked very nicely !

I came here for the milkshake and it did not disappoint. I will return for another!

The banh mi burger was good and I liked the fact that it was made of beans, but it wasn’t overly exciting.

Pros: Milkshakes!, Friendly staff

This place has the absolute best vegan burgers. The fries are topped with Parmesan and to die for. Worth every penny.

Great salads

I had the taco salad which was really good and fullfilling. I liked that I had a burger patty in small pieces in my salad.

Pros: Open for lunch

Delicious and gf!

I love all vegan menus! Gf options were easy to identify. The Caesar salad wasn't great. The dressing was definitely not a very Caesar like dressing, and was VERY oily. I'd just get fries next time.

Pros: All vegan , V gf buns!

Cons: Caesar salad dressing was weird and too oily

Cheap and fast

Stopped in here on the way to a Raptors game. Had the firehouse with Poutine and the Southwest with the truffle fries. Both were generous portions, so flavourful and tasted great.

Pros: Fast service. , Well priced. , Generous portions.

Cons: Limited seating.

Great Downtown Fast Food

Small menu with some different options! Good food for your money’s worth. I tried the California and will definitely be back to try out the rest of the menu... especially the vegan milkshakes.

edit: they have expanded the menu! Definitely a good move on their part. Having tasted the whole burger menu, I recommend the firehouse or the meatball! And the milkshakes are madly good!

Pros: Good prices, Location

Affordable vegan fast food

So, this was my first experience with Planta and I headed here after a really difficult day. For some reason, I expected a restaurant but its more of a small fast food joint where you have to order at the till and they call out your name. Fair enough!

I ordered "The Cubano" - their jackfruit burger. It was quite average, specially the bun was pretty artificial, do not expect anything artisan. I liked their truffle fries, even though they are just regular fries with truffle-infused seasoning. The price for the combo was really cheap though.

I personally don't like the single-use packaging they use, it might be biodegradable or whatever, but still I would prefer if they used proper dishes and cutlery. That is one star less for me.

Still, I would anytime prefer this place over chains such as Tim Hortons or A&W.

Pros: Inexpensive, All vegan, Central location

Cons: Single-use packaging

Great food, great service

Spent 10 days in Toronto and ended up here almost daily, I tried all their burgers and they were all good, my favourite probably being the Californian, and I recommend the buffalo cauliflower on the side. Lovely girl behind the counter and the guys in the kitchen were just as friendly. No complaints at all, thanks all

Pros: Good selection of food, Nice thick milkshakes, Great service
