Solid Vegan Asian Food

LuAnne's was delicious! Being Asian, I am probably a harder judge on asian cuisine. Very solid, highly recommend. But there are also many other great asian places to check out too!

What are your favorite Asian places either in the city or in Brooklyn?


27 Feb 2024

Probably Beyond sushi is the best I tried so far. Franchia and Hangawi are good but not the best. I want to try spicy moon. fast casual mok bar snd noodle love is tasty


27 Feb 2024

I like Beyond Sushi and Franchia. Am yet to try Hangawi - seems quite pricey though! I’m curious what you’ll think about Spicy Moon. The other two you mentioned aren’t fully vegan, right?

Have you been to Ginger Root?


27 Feb 2024

Hangawi is a sister of Franchia, so if you like one you will most likely like the other. I also want to try planta queen which looks asian. yes mok bar is non veg and I think noodle love is non-veg too. I also liked barn joo for non veg but there are limited options.

My favorite restaurant in NYC

Fantastic place with good prices! I went here constantly when I lived in NYC. Particularly love the scallion pancakes, fried king oyster shrooms, and General Tso’s.

Good option for limited budget!

I really enjoy the place and food! The place is quite magical and quiet within the jungle of Manhattan. The food tasted delicious! My friends and I enjoyed a daily menu for around 12$ with a starter and main dish included. Delighted to have found this place!

All vegan and friendly staff

We liked the music they played as it added to the atmosphere. The food was served very quickly, but note that we were there shortly after opening and seemed to be the first costumers there. The restaurant was clean and nicely decorated, the staff was very friendly and attentive and the food was very nice.

We did however feel that some of the dishes could have more flavour, but they were still good.

Pros: All vegan menu , Friendly staff

Coming here for years !

I love this place and been coming for years. Has so many great options that can be on the indulgent or healthy side depending on what you feel like your plant based should be that day! It’s a very homely place , great for a meal with your partner or catch up and glass of wine with a friend. It’s not “super” fancy I guess , but that’s nice because it’s somewhere you can come again and again , be treated like an old friend and not pay an impossible bill (hard these days in NYC). Lots of money being thrown at plant based dining these days but it’s places like this that truely get it , that should be supporting. Lots of love to this awesome establishment.

Pros: All the food, Understanding of vegan food, Healthy or indulgent

Cons: Absolutely none.

Sooo yummy! Had the sizzling soy cutlet platter but replaced soy with tofu

The sauce was incredible! So favourable! The veggies were so fresh and had it with tofu because I don’t like faux soy meats in general! Highly recommend!

Pros: Fresh veggies , Sauce tasty

Nice Asian Vegan food!

It was a nice enough place with some hits and misses. We ordered Summer Rolls, Stuffed Fried Wantons, Crispy Soy, BBQ Seitan Skewers and Sizzling Soy Cutlet Platter. I find eating Asian in States it's always a bit sweet and the only chilli sauce that's available is Sirachi and I can't get chilli oil at all. This was no exception with sweet mango sauces on offer which I replaced with other things.

I found the summer rolls a bit disappointing as I prefer finely chopped ingredients instead of the long fat strips of vegetables used here and there were no fresh herbs either. The Sizzling Soy Cutlet was rather lack luster. The Stuffed Fried Wantons, Crispy Soy and BBQ Seitan Skewers were all good. The Skewers were the best, juicy with a sublime sauce.

Over all it was nice but it depends on what you order.

Pros: BBQ Seitan Skewers

Cons: Sizzling Soy Cutlet Platter, Summer rolls, Scallion Pancakes

Perfect place for Asian comfort food!

The BBQ pork is delicious but my ultimate favorite is the Lo-Meir. Quick delivery if you live close.

Fine Dining Atmosphere. Experimental Pan-Asian Food.

LuAnne's Wild Ginger is a great option for when you are ravenous and quickly want an elegant place to eat a meal at. That's because it offers a wide range of pan-Asian inspired foods-- they are not authentic, but they are delicious and implemented well. (For instance, their Korean bi-bim-bap, or vegetable rice bowl, is a dish I grew up eating-- the one at LuAnne's includes mango salsa and chickpeas, though the authentic, traditional Korean version will not have those ingredients.)

For instance, I tried their crispy soy protein dish, which paired well with the greens and sweet-tart plum sauce. I highly recommend their black pepper seitan, too.

Pros: Elegant dining space, Quick service, Experimental, creatively implemented dishes

Cons: Pan-Asian, innovative dishes may not suit everyone

Wholesome, tasty comforting goodness

Visiting a friend in NYC who didn’t know where to take her vegan bud for lunch, decided on the local veg friendly place around the corner. Well did I luck out! Luannes is a spot that I will come back to every time I’m in town. Great food, great prices. Lovely place to visit.

Pros: Great vegan menu, Reasonably priced, Great lunch spot
