Abuelos Mexican Embassy

They definitely use lard and also meat based sauces compose their sauces. The manager said the only thing vegetarian were the side potatoes (Not vegan though). 

Cafe Sahara
3641 E Baseline Rd # Q100
Gilbert, AZ 85234
(480) 633-1217
Excellent vegan selection!  Recently started new vegan buffet on Wednesday evenings!  Outstanding baba ganoush, hummus, falafel, etc! All vegan items (and there are a lot of them) are clearly marked on the menu.  Highly recommend this restaurant!

Capriotti's Sandwich Shop
4929 E Chandler Blvd
Off Chandler Rd. and I-10
They make subs with fake meat - bologna, salami, or turkey.  Their bread and vegetables are also much better than regular sub places like Subway.  Vegans must specify no cheese.
Warning:  I have been told that they use the Worthington brand frozen meats, which contain egg whites.

Jason's Deli
7230 W. Ray Rd.
Chandler, AZ  85226
The tortillas are vegan - you can get a Spinach Veggie Wrap that can be vegan when ordered without the cheese.   Contact Information:  http://www.jasonsdeli.com/index2.html

India Delight
1674 N. Higley Rd.
Gilbert, AZ  85234
"The service, first off, was great. My waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful when it came to finding veg dishes. Additionally, the Menu is split into regional sections (North Indian, South Indian, Indo-Chinese) and the whole South Indian section, true to tradition, is completely vegetarian. Not to mention everything was delicious!! They also have a great wine menu!"
Thanks, Emma!

India Gate
6245 W. Chandler Blvd.
Chandler, Arizona 85226
offers 18 Vegetarian entrees, featuring such ingredients as lentils, potatoes, eggplant, nuts, tomatoes, and various vegetables.  There's also a "Vegetarian Dinner" meal, which consists of soup or salad, vegetable samosa, an entree with rice, dessert, and coffee or tea.

Lee Lee's Asian Market on Warner and Dobson. This place is inexpensive for many vegan items especially rice noodles and frozen foods.  Be aware- this store is not intended for vegans.

Lotus Asia Cafe and Grill - Indonesian food
1076 W Chandler Blvd  (at Alma School Road)
Chandler, AZ  85224 - 5224
"The owners are wonderful and very accommodating. It's more fun with a few people so you can try more dishes. My favorite is the Jackfruit curry (it's like a cross between breadfruit and an artichoke, taste-wise). Most people probably are aware that tempeh originated in Indonesia. They serve a delicious Gado gado and several other dishes with Tofu, tempeh or both including a really delicious all vegan soup."
Thanks, Meg!

Pita Jungle
1949 W. Ray Rd.
Chandler AZ 85224
"Pita Jungle has another bigger restaurant on the lake at Anderson Springs, the SE corner of Dobson and Ray Roads in Chandler.  It touts an even wider menu selection than the Tempe store, plus full bar, great ambience, attentive young wait staff who understand "vegan" AND.... live jazz featuring artists you've heard on KYOT.  And get this, the music starts at 7pm rather than the usual 9 or 10pm typical of most jazz venues.  Wait, it gets better -- all this with clean air indoors because Chandler has the no-smoking ordinance!  Thursday nights the Jungle has a jazz open mic opportunity for those who sign up prior to 7pm. You can also be served on the deck on the lake."
Thanks, Jan!

Gilbert Location-
1431 E. Williams Field Rd.

Chandler,  AZ 85226-2023

Rivas Mexican Food
546 N Gilbert Rd (Between Guadalupe & Elliot Roads)
Gilbert, AZ 85234
Very similar to Amado's.  They are open 24 hours, use vegetable oil, and the prices are very reasonable for bean burritos and/or tostados that can be ordered without cheese and with guacamole.  Check out the pickled carrots along with various concoctions at the salsa bar!

7151 West Ray Road
Chandler, AZ 85226
"...Roy’s in Chandler has a vegetarian menu! Ask for it when you make a reservation (or are being seated). The wait staff can point out what items are vegan (unfortunately the chocolate soufflé is not vegan, but I believe the sorbets are. The other Roy’s can make vegetarian items, but having an entire menu of veggie items was great! It’s nice to have a good up-scale restaurant that caters to vegetarians".
Thanks, Sonia!

SE corner of Dobson & Ray Roads
"Has health foods & products, vegan & vegetarian foods, an impressive bulk grain/nuts/etc. department, beer & wine - but unfortunately they do have a flesh department. They have conventional and organic produce and the prices are amazingly low - beats Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and Wild Oats by far!  Located a few doors down from Pita Jungle, on the lake at Anderson Springs."
  Thanks, again Jan!

Sunflower Market
730 South Cooper Road in Gilbert - on the NW Corner of Cooper & Warner
Store Hours:  Monday-Sunday 8AM - 10PM

It is similar to Sprouts.  They have a nice organic produce section and a large supplement section with knowledgeable staff.  They have a lot of vegetarian foods, some vegan prepared foods, and the staff will special order just about anything.  Thanks, Deb!

Swaddee Thai
5055 W. Ray Rd  #B8
Chandler, Arizona 85226
 Located at the southwest corner of Ray Rd and Rural Rd, next to US Tae Kwon-do.

Woodlands Vegetarian South Indian Kitchen
4980 W Ray Road, Suite #10
Chandler, AZ 85226
"Chris went to this vegetarian restaurant the other day and said it was really good and not expensive. They have all vegetarian food and about half is vegan! They do not serve alcohol but will allow it to be brought in. They are on the NE corner of Rural and Ray".  Thanks, Michelle!

Tina's Ethiopian Cafe

NW corner of Ray and McClintock
They have one vegan soup.  It is served every day, both on the lunch and dinner menus. It's listed under the "Gumbo//Beans" section, and is just called Vegan. Here's the description: "A true vegetarian soup. A medium roux with extra 'Trinity', corn potatoes and seasonal vegetables simmered in a vegetable stock."
Warning:  They are heavy purveyors of meat, such as frog legs and alligator as well as the usual.
