Respond to Review of CLOSED: Ain Soph.Ginza
Review: Many apps, magazines, tourist guides and websites list Ain Soph Ginza as the number 1 vegetarian restaurant in Tokyo. Many reviewers say they never even got in because one needs a reservation. Others tried to find it, but never succeeded. So I didn't even try to eat here. However, yesterday we stumbled upon it by accident and there was a table available, even without having reservations. Lucky us! The architecture of the building is wonderfully weird. It has many half floors. The kitchen is spread over two half floors and the guests sit at three different levels. The waiter actually has to go outside to building to bring food to guests at the second and third floor. So how about the food? It makes it all worth while! The menu (both in Japanese and English) has lots of variety and even the pictures look tasty! I had the "nutty dry curry" and my friend had an actual curry. We shared a plate of fried fake meat. This was a high calorie choice, we both needed some energy. Ain Soph also offers many low calorie dishes. The taste was absolutely superb. The ingredients are all fresh and high quality. The cooking is done exactly right with no excess oil or dressing, thereby enjoying the pure taste of the ingredients themselves. I now understand why people make reservations ahead. Now I understand why people search so hard to find this place!
