We ate there 2 years ago when DD wasn't a vegetarian. She is a full blown vegetarian now. :thumbsup2 I am concerned it might be too much "meat on a stick" and not enough other things. I remember broccoli, wings, different meats, but I cannot remember much of anything else. Is there a salad and pasta of some sort? Anything else that I am forgetting would be greatly appreciated. If anybody has any food "porn" from dinner there too I would also greatly appreciate it so I can remind my DD what it was like to see if she would even want to consider going. Right now, I do have an ADR for our trip. Depending on what you all can help me figure out will depend on if I am going to keep it or not ;)

Welcome bread, chicken wings, pork dumplings, salad, dipping sauces, noodles, broccoli, and for us two weeks ago the meats were: chicken, steak, pork and shrimp. For dessert it was bread pudding.

I will add it was all really delicious. Our favorite meats were the pork and shrimp.

We have been there many times and never had a bad meal (not even close) two weeks ago it was outstanding in the food and service department.

It's a great place and we go there once or twice a trip, but I sure wouldn't go just for the veggies. It was broccoli and some other veggie mixed I think - can hardly remember because it was the least of what I enjoyed. The salad with dressing was delicious, actually everything else was very good and that yummy bread pudding w/sauce. The noodles were one of my favorites too, but not sure what type of sauce was on them. If she doesn't want meat, then I wouldn't spend the $$$ on that kind of meal personally.

If you note on the reservation that she is a vegetarian, call the special diet hotline people, and tell them when you get there....the chef will make an entirely special entree for your daughter. It is not like other places where she just has to eat around the meat.

Many people on here have raved about how good the meal was for veggies there.

Agree with all of the above but i must say Ohan would be a Vegan's worst nightmare. The thought of eating carved MEAT off skewers must be repulsive

Besides me not being a vegan though i am not overly impressed with Ohana for dinner. I like breakfast better.

Also....just a suggestion...title a thread with something like "vegetarian at Ohana," and I am sure you will get more responses from vegetarians and what they have eaten there-maybe even pics. I have seen LOTS of reviews with really cool looking vegetarian entrees at Ohana.

I am a gluten free vegan and dined at O'Hana's in 2010. I let them know when I made the reservation and the chef came to talk to me when we were seated. I had several flavors of hummus with gluten free rolls(no longer vegan,I hear),followed by a delicious teriyaki tofu with rice and lots of veggies.:) For dessert I had tofutti. I really enjoyed it and would recommend your daughter try it!

Thank you all so far! I changed the title of the thread too in hopes of getting more vegetarian experiences. Thanks again!

I Loved Ohana when I went as a Vegan! They made me the best tofu dish, and brought out plenty of other options that kept me well fed! The salad and noodle dishes were great, as well as the veggies!

I'm a long time vegetarian and we have eaten at Ohana several times. It is one of our favorites. Like others have said, there is salad, great noodles, great veggies, a tofu dish, and the delicious bread pudding. The last couple of times we have been there, I have also been offered a seperate appetizer of hummus. I have always left stuffed and satisfied.

As far as the meat on a stick being walked around, I don't find that has horrifying as eating at Coral Reef. I find it somewhat ironic that everyone is watching the beautiful fish swim around while dining on seafood! :eek:

Here is a reference from another site that references Disney is still making accomodations if provided advance notice:

"If you're a vegan or on a strict low-fat diet--or would simply like an extra-special vegetarian meal--call the Walt Disney World main switchboard (407) 824-2222 and ask to be transferred to the restaurant of your choice. Once connected, ask to speak directly with a chef, and explain your dietary needs. Have fun brainstorming with the chefs about your special meal. If you give them enough advance notice (usually a week will do), most Disney chefs are more than happy to purchase special items like rice milk, kamut or seitan to make your meal memorable. Remember to get your chef's full name and to let him or her know the date and time of your visit. "

We were there in spet and my son had a vegetarian meal i must say it looked really good when we got there we just ask for it and it was ready in just a few mins my son can eat alot and he had some left overs every place we went had a great meal for him :wave2:

The chef is so accomodating I don't think there would be any problem as a vegetarian. Vegan is out though because you couldn't eat the Bread pudding for dessert which, IMHO, is the main reason for going to 'Ohana.:rotfl2:
