The Las Vegas Strip is where you’ll find many of the best and most fabulous restaurants in the country. Here, where there’s a restaurant for what seems to be every culinary desire, it’s not always easy to find a great spot for vegetarian food. We’ve put together a list to make this less of a challenge.
Considering the popularity of the plant-based diet lifestyle, the Strip has been a little slow to catch onto the concept. It wasn’t that long ago that the Strip welcomed its very first all-vegetarian/vegan restaurant – Truth & Tonic.
While there aren’t many exclusively vegan and vegetarian dining options on the Strip, there are plenty of vegetarian-friendly restaurants where you can enjoy an incredible meal that. We’ve done the delicious work of trying them all to come up with this list of the best vegetarian and vegan restaurants in a number of categories.
Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Las Vegas
Truth & Tonic Wellness Cafe – Best Vegetarian Restaurant on the Strip
Being the only exclusively vegetarian restaurant on the Strip, Truth & Tonic Wellness Cafe wins the award hands-down, but that isn’t the only reason we love them for Vegetarian and Vegan dining on the Strip.
Truth & Tonic adds a new freshness and vitality to the Vegas dining scene. With a delicious menu that’s filled with nutrient-packed dishes that nourish both the body and your palate. A meal at Truth & Tonic is a sure way to fuel your body for a day of fun and adventure in Las Vegas, NV.

Wazuzu – Best Vegetarian Las Vegas Strip Runner Up
Wazuzu is a Pan-Asian restaurant located in the Wynn Las Vegas. Chef Jimmy Widjaja creates a fusion of Japanese, Chinese, and Thai cuisine that tantalizes the senses. This, combined with the warm and exotic Asian decor, including a 27-foot dragon that’s made of crystals, makes Wazuzu one of those restaurants that you’ll dream about returning to on your next trip to Las Vegas.
Wazuzu doesn’t offer a menu that’s completely vegetarian or plant-based. But, they do offer enough vegan selections that they make it onto our list as the runner-up for vegetarian dining on the Strip.
Wazuzu has an Asian vegan and vegetarian section on their menu that includes vegan sushi, like their delicious rainbow vegan sushi rolls with asparagus, cucumber, avocado, and a perfectly creamy vegan cilantro aioli. Other vegan Asian dishes that guests love at Wazuzu include the jade dumpling with spinach and shitake mushrooms and the vegan drunken noodles with either tofu, tons of fresh vegetables, or Gardein Chick’n.

Hell’s Kitchen – Largest Vegan Menu on the Strip
Aside from his temperament and vibrant personality, Chef Gordon Ramsay is known for his perfected versions of classic dishes like beef wellington and crispy skin salmon. Even his reality-based cooking show competitions rarely focus on plant-based meals, so it might come as a surprise that Hell’s Kitchen is where you’re going to find one of the largest vegan-friendly menus on the Strip.
Hell’s Kitchen offers an entirely vegetarian and vegan menu that’s available daily to the Las Vegas restaurant guests. So much thought and care have gone into this that Hell’s Kitchen offers both a menu that’s vegetarian that features dishes with a bit of dairy, like a quinoa salad with ricotta salata and a menu that’s exclusively vegan.
The vegan menu features all sorts of delicious dishes, like pan-seared tofu scallops with English pea puree and pickled fennel and white bean in purgatory, which is a dish of spicy tomato sauce cashew cream cheese, and rustic grilled bread. There are also desserts to satisfy your vegan or vegetarian sweet tooth.
Hell’s Kitchen is located in Caesars Palace and is open from 11 am – 10:30 pm daily.
