No this restaurant is not wheelchair accessible. There are a few steps before you get to the entrance. Would be difficult for the wheelchair user.

As I'm not vegan myself, I'm not sure what provisions they can make specifically, but there was an extensive selection of vegetable, lentil and other dishes. They seem to be very helpful so fear not. You will enjoy it.
