What began as a pop-up turned into a full-fledged brick-and-mortar restaurant after earning the love and loyalty of the locals. Garden Grill feels like a second home with its peaceful ambiance, and let’s not forget the quality vegan fare that is to die for.

You don’t always have to go for a vegan burger to satiate your faux protein cravings. Opt for vegan sushi from Daikon instead. The sushi restaurant serves vegan sushi, like a black dragon sushi roll with eggplant “eel,” and entrees such as tempura-fried gluten pieces.

They also have pressed juices and smoothies. For desert, you can go for a coconut cake or fried lumpia-wrapped banana drizzled with chocolate and powdered sugar.

If you loved the hit show Hell’s Kitchen, you have to visit celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s Hell's Kitchen. The restaurant offers a vegan menu, and just like the show, diners can get a view of the chefs preparing their meals. 

One of the dishes includes the famous creamy truffle risotto with tofu puree and herb salad. Unlike the show, the kitchen will deftly turn out amazing food every time in this restaurant.

If you are looking for vegan Mexican food in Las Vegas, your search ends with Tacotarian. They offer 14 different vegan tacos you can order à la carte. Go for a pastor, the seitan version of a Baja-style fish taco with fried avocado instead of the fish.

Besides the tacos, Tacotarian’s menu includes antojitos (snacks) like enchiladas served with green, red, or mole sauce and a Cali burrito stuffed with a protein of choice.

Build-your-own pizzas are a crowd favorite but do not limit yourself to just pizza. The restaurant serves classic Italian dishes like stuffed zucchini roll with ricotta and bolognese. They also have gluten-free options.

The Modern Vegan opened in 2018 after founder Gia Schultz realized the quality of vegan restaurant offerings was subpar. The restaurant started with brunch and later added lunch and dinner.

With the belief that anything can be made vegan and delicious, this vegan restaurant has traditional favorites like burgers and tacos. For dessert, they have a large portion of “Holy Hell,” consisting of peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough served with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

Indian cuisine has tons of flavorful vegan options, so we had to include an Indian restaurant on the list. Govinda’s Cafe is tucked away inside the Radha Govinda Hare Krishna Temple and offers an all-you-can-eat buffet for a donation of less than $10.

Diners can expect good-for-the-soul dishes, including dalhl soup, curry with tofu and beans, chutney, and semolina pudding for dessert. The menu keeps changing, but rest assured, Govinda’s serves deliciousness at unbeatable prices.

At NoButcher, non-vegans will question their anti-milk substitutes and fake meat beliefs. The aptly named restaurant is one of the best spots for vegan sandwiches. They offer a wide variety, such as the Italian cold cut sandwich, packed with vegan turkey and pepperoni, lettuce, tomato, onion, and a dollop of vegan garlic and herb cream cheese.

You can add sides and beverages like vegan egg salad and a house-made lemonade.
