So So Vegan Friendly - Ask for non-grilled tofu! - Edit

We went there as a party of four. I am the only vegan in the group. Two are vegetarians.

The menu has several vegan options, not that many.
The main courses are accompanied by a soup (which is not vegan) or a salad for an extra charge (so it costs more for vegans...).

The rest of the party were very satisfied with the place, except for the tomatoes - basil soup (not vegan!).

The vegan courses that we had were as follows:
Coconut curry - was nice, but nothing exceptional.
Chana Masala - which was very good.

Be careful - they grill the tofu on the same grill that they use for the chicken and fish! I was not made aware of it. I didn't eat the tofu.

For dessert I had the vegan chocoholic dessert which was nice but not much more.
The non-vegan desserts were highly acclaimed by the rest of the party.

Pros: vegan friendly place that is open after 9pm in a n, vegan options are marked as such in the menu, Chana masala

Cons: the tofu is grilled on the same grill used for chi, not many vegan options

Pleasnt restaurant - Edit

This pleasant restaurant has several vegan dishes listed on the dinner menu: Asian stir fry, chana masala, polenta and Thai curry. There are also a couple of vegetarian options. We had the polenta, and two vegetarian entrees (couscous cakes and deep dish enchilada). Dinner was surprisingly good. Vegan options at lunch are much more limited.

I wanted to love it - Edit

Had a separate vegan menu which was awesome. Had a few Indian options and a delicious sounding polenta dish that came with salad greens. The polenta was so bland and the greens seemed oily. I only ate half which was a shame because it was so expensive! The restaurant was busy and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal so this might be a one off.

A Great Find! - Edit

Driving through Utah and needed a place to stop for dinner. This place was great! They had the vegan options labeled right on the menu! I had the bread with a balsamic vinaigrette dip, Chana Masala, with the chocolate mousse for dessert. The mousse is so creamy and delicious; make sure you save room for it!
Neat atmosphere, with art for sale on the walls. Surprisingly crowded for a Monday night, (no wait, but pretty full) but when your food tastes that good it makes sense!

Pros: vegan labels on menu, vegan dessert option, fun atmosphere

Great Food - a real surprise discovery! - Edit

We didn't expect to find a place that serves vegan food in a small town in Utah, but Rocking V Cafe was delicious! We had the vegan Mushroom Stroganoff, the vegan daily special, and it was wonderful! A pleasant experience, even though the soup choices were unfortunately not vegan (they come with the entree, so it's a good idea to ask).

Pros: Great Food, Friendly Staff

Great Find - Edit

If you go to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary- you must check out Rocking V. Vegan options available every night. It is a great atmosphere and a really cool art gallery upstairs. The owner and staff are incredibly nice.

Pros: great food, great atmosphere, cna bring your dog!

A REAL Oasis in the Desert - Edit

Finally a place that makes vegetarian selections more than an afterthought. Thoughtful and creative selections far beyond the usual fare offered by obviously uninspired meat eating chefs everywhere. Wine selection could be improved with the same attention given the creative menu. Probably should offer a simpler crusty bread option and save the herb bread for accompanying specific dishes. Desert??? Again, fabulous and thoughtful vegan and dairy options...if only they were open for breakfast!

Pretty awesome find - Edit

I ate here the first time over a year ago with my brother, on a drive from Seattle. The first thing I was asked as we were being seated was if we were vegetarian! What a suprise from a small town resturaunt. Most recently, I stayed in Kanab to volunteer at Best Friends and came to eat here a couple times. Extremely friendly, busy place! Vibrant and classy selections on the vegetarian portion of the menu, as well as a good understanding of vegan needs. Always a daily vegan featured item. I will look forward to coming here again...You might need to make resurvations - the place gets pretty busy - but you can always check out the art gallery upstairs.

Pros: vegan special, vegetarian entrees, super staff and owners

Cons: serves meat
