  • ‘Reuben Waller and Plant Candi are magicians. They have a gift for making vegan food so delicious you’d eat it even if you weren’t a vegan.’

    Matthew Fort
    Food Critic and Writer
  • Having worked with the guys from Plant Candi on a number of projects, I always look forward to creative energy they bring, and can rest assured they always deliver a fantastic product.

    Opening Nordvegan was a big undertaking for us, but Reuben did an amazing job getting the kitchen up and running, pulling together and training a great team, and along with Peter designing some fantastic menus and creating the recipes in our top-selling cook book.

    I highly recommend Plant Candi for their professionalism and excellence.

  • As a life long lover of the business and heading up large F&B groups around the world I’ve been lucky enough to have dined with the best of the best.

    The love of my life is an organic only vegetarian as well. She is a fabulous chef and spoils me often. We have a plant based restaurant at our Sydney Ovolo location and eat there frequently so I feel I have a good understanding of plant based dining. Having the opportunity to try Reuben’s plant based menu was mind blowing. Incredible flavours, tricks on the mind with textures and nostalgic tastes. Feeling like I’m actually having duck pancakes but not was a wild ride! Every dish was seasoned to perfection, beautiful presentations and genius creativity.

    I’ve now been converted that you can enjoy an incredible night of dining without my life long staple go to meats..

  • Reuben and Plant Candi have been a fundamental and crucial part in starting WAKU WAKU, the biggest vegan restaurant of Europe. They put together the kitchen hardware, hired and trained the kitchen team and launched a mind-blowing vegan menu.

    Their professional approach to challenges and their limitless effort and passion are not less than impressive. For months there were queues at the entrance with people wanting to experience their excellent food and till this day the restaurant has been full 7 days a week.

  • Absolute pleasure to work with the Plant Candi team and have them onboard to develop our brand, and to help steer us through the difficult business of opening a new site. We were blown away with the quality of their work, and they created some outstanding dishes which took our menus to the next level. I cannot recommend them enough – working with Plant Candi was the best decision we made.
