Disapointing - Edit

My first review on Happy Cow and it has to be a negative one and it pisses me off but this place is a joke!!

The staff is nice and kind but ...kniws NOTHING about 'vegan' food!! Like ... nothing.

I have tried at least 10 items on their menu ...and came back 3 times just in the hope I just had been unlucky but no...

First this has nothing to do with vegan food! Its vegetarian sandwiches and rolls, with zero creativity, no synergy between food.

It is a group of incompetent people who want to make profit out of a trend.

Its way overpriced, the food is bland. I had the hummus burrito which was a joke, tasteless, the lettuce wraps which was a sandwich with tomatoes and cucumbers and some basic tasteless guacamole.

The wras were heavy.

The juice bar is a joke. It tasted terrible both times I tried. The girl has no idea of doses...

The foid is handles with bare hands (at least for the juices)... the oranges are not freshly squeezed..,

I bought chia seeds a small pack for almost 10us$ that tasted and smelled rotten , I threw it away..,

The only thing is maybe their donuts which I found good.

The basics are not there ...

They need to learn about vegan food and having lived in places that has some of the best vegan food in the world ...not saying I was expecting THAT level but a minimum and to me that minimum wasnt met.

Its a rip off. Save your money and time -a vegetarian taco or chips and salsa or some chili quesadilla for ten times cheaper will be a better option!

What a joke!

Im disapoibted and angry -and I do not understand the over positive comments. Maybe never ate at a vegan place before or were just in such a good mood..

Pros: Nice space, Kind service, Donuts

Cons: Bland tasteless foid, Tasteless juices, Overpriced

Great restaurant with many choices - Edit

Nice restaurant with many choices for vegans, friendly staff! We had a teriyaki bowl and a burrito, both were good, the cheesecake as a desert was great too!

good - Edit

It’s a nice restaurant with a huge and varied all vegan menu. From enchiladas, tamales, hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza to Mousse au chocolate and muffins. The food is very health oriented and if you are looking for the typical Mexican food experience with lots of oil and chili, you might want to look elsewhere.

Lots of variety and things you can't always find in Mexico - Edit

Run like a fast food type chain restaurant. Has a huge menu with Mexican and western things. Lots of stuff you don't easily find in your Mexican travels like vegan cheese, breads and desserts.
I had the caesar salad and it was amazing. Totally recommend. The vegetable pizza was average. Not much taste and soggy. I'd get something else. Their green cacao smoothie tasted well, but was watery so wouldn't call it a smoothie.
Also has bakery items, superfoods in packets and stuff to take home.
All in all I'd come back for the treat, but wouldn't rave about the quality of food or service overall.

Pros: so many options, something for everyone

Cons: waitress wasn't nice and location is on the way to

Comida deliciosa! - Edit

Me encanta comer en Vegan Planet los fines de semana con mi familia. La comida es deliciosa. Lo malo es que sirven popotes de plástico que va en contra de toda filosofía vagan por el medio ambiente, y sus contenedores para llevar son de plástico también. Pero la comida y el servicio es perfecto.

Pros: Delicious

Cons: Not eco-friendly

Wow! - Edit

This place is amazing! The food was absolutely delicious! It felt great to be able to come to a vegan place and eat in Cancun. We drove from Playa del Carmen to this location just so we can have vegan food. Their juices and shakes are amazing. We had breakfast here with pancakes and Choritofu, and everything was delicious!

Pros: all vegan!

Disappointing - Edit

I was looking forward to going there as I read a lot of good reviews but was very disappointed.

The service was good. The waitress was fast and nice.
But the food... not so good. I had the "fuego" burrito which wasn't spicy nor tasty, wasn't salted and wasn't even wrapped well. Salsa was as bland as the burrito. Then I had the quesadillas (corn tortilla and mozzarella) which were over salted, beans were bland and the "Mexican" rice (more "canned tomatoe sauce") I couldn't even eat.
I also bought their cookies and was disappointed as well.
I live in the area but won't visit again next time I come to cancun.

Wow, a worldwide concept starts in Cancun - Edit

This place is fantastic! Great concept, polished ambience and menu, and most importantly - fantastic food. I think Vegan Planet would be a huge success in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London - really any major city with a substantial vegetarian and vegan population. Highly recommended if you are going to be in Cancun.

Pros: Wonderful comfortable space, Super friendly personel, Creative and really tasty food

Minus one star for service - Edit

When I see word "vegan" in places name, I have an expectation that waitress will know very well what they are serving. Unfortunately in Vegan Planet I didn't get that. But what I got was rather good mexican dishes. Not as bland as in many other places in neighbourhood but in any way as good as Sirena Morena. Service was quite bad but the worst thing was that the prices for few things were higher on the bill than in menu. I didn't talk about it with waitress because it was only few bucks but it's worth noting. Without service problems it would be 4 stars.

awesome full of choices vegan restaurant - Edit

So many options that you don't know what to eat. Everything we tried so far was good or excellent.
for the vegan cheese, the pizza and the sushis...
Light is very dimmed for a restaurant, gives an interesting atmosphere.
Friendly staff and really reasonable prices
Will come back for sure

Pros: lot of options, prices

Excellent enchiladas - Edit

The enchiladas were amazing - absolutely delicious and filling. I ordered raw vegan cheese, kombucha and a coconut milkshake to go, all were very good, but I suppose slightly underwhelming compared to the enchiladas.
It's a sit-down restaurant, a step up from other veggie places in the area, but still not formal by any means. Good, friendly service.

Great Vegan Food - Edit

After experiencing a terrible dining experience in one of the 5 star resorts, we ditched our hotel and stayed downtown. After the bad experience in resort, we were not expecting to find such a vegan gem as this place. The food was inventive and flavourful. The owner is a lovely guy and enjoyed talking to the customers. I hope this venture expands to even more locations.

Pros: Vegan, Raw, Good Value

Vegan Restaurant. - Edit

100% vegan so obviously plenty of choice and nothing to worry when ordering. I don't have any complaints although I was also not impressed. Everything seemed good just nothing special. The menu and dishes seem very "americanized" as is the case with many tourist oriented restaurants in Cancun.

Variety and Tasty! - Edit

Although difficult to translate, the choices and food were great!! Also so accommodating to restrictions of no onions, so you know they make everything fresh as you order. The menu has so many options, you can come multiple times and still have variety. Even if the food is bland, they have spicy sauces! The cheesecake was delicious!!!

fantastic food... great people - Edit

My husband and I went to the Vegan Planet for a Sunday lunch. They had some local families there, so we were the only tourists at that time :)
We ordered 2 main dishes from the Mexican list on the menu. The food came out relatively in no time and was excellent. A real taste of Mexico!
For desert we ordered the cheesecake and a chocolate cake (made with coco powder mixed with Avocado!!!) with an ice cream scoop.
Both was soooo good!!!
Even though this restaurant is in the centre of Cancun and not in the hotel area, take a taxi if needed, 'cause you have to try it at least once
