lovely hidden space

Posted on 06 / 16 / 2015

the space was quite pretty for a spot in a mall basement with lovely wood decorations and friendly staff.

I had the daily lunch set which came with perfectly cooked brown rice, a salad, a cup of the soup of the day (minestrone), and three small portions of their daily specials - today an Edamame patty (delicious!), a seaweed salad, and garlic broccoli.

the place is 100% vegetarian (and seemed vegan too but I didn't ask) except for their one daily fish option.

the desserts were stunning but we didn't save room. think matcha adzUki soymilk tiramisu!

Pros: healthy, friendly
Cons: none

One of the best restaurants in Tokyo!

Posted on 12 / 31 / 2014

I have been to all three of the Chaya Macrobiotics restaurants and I have to say I think they are some of the best restaurants in Tokyo. They really understand vegan substitutions (unlike many Japanese restaurants) and their vegan desserts are to die for!

The only non-vegan items on their menu are fish (since it's a macrobiotic place).

If you're looking for a place with American- or European-type food with a Japanese flair, look no further! They also have some nice packaged snacks and treats that you can buy for the road.

This particular location in Hibiya is a nice lunch spot and is close to the train station.

Pros: Great food, Amazing desserts, Healthy

Reasonably tasty if you like eating in food courts

Posted on 08 / 30 / 2013

Why do so many veggie/vegan restaurants have to be in such dismal surroundings? I don't mind eating at food courts but for evening meals, it's so much nicer to get out onto the streets and dine at places with windows!

Anyway, this place was not that easy to find. I had the meal set while my partner chose individual dishes. Everything was tasty - not the best food we've ever had, but certainly not the worst! Portions were however small.

Overall, it was quite pleasing after our experiences at Ain Soph Ginza the day before but not as good as T's Tantan which is nearby in the station

Pros: Food is quite tasty, Staff are polite & friendly, Reasonably priced
Cons: In a department store , Lacking in atmosphere, Small portions

lovely vegan food

Posted on 07 / 22 / 2013

I've been going to this place for several years and I think their vegan desserts are some of the best in Tokyo. The menu is 95% macrobiotic vegan; 1 dish (clearly marked) contains fish. Another reason I enjoy this place is that it's nearly impossible to find a place in the Ginza area that isn't expensive meat-based cuisine. Chaya has a fairly large menu of both seasonally-changing sets and a la carte items as well as deli items. I recently had tofu "omu-kare" (omelet + curry) with brown rice and it was nice to be able to try some vegan Japanese comfort food. I also enjoy their avocado & teriyaki soy 'chicken' sandwich. The desserts are highly-recommended. The restaurant is located in the basement of Hibiya Chanter shopping mall, near Hibiya station. (If you're asking for directions, note that Chanter is pronounced "shan-tay" as in the French verb; otherwise locals may not know what you're asking for.)

Pros: decent portion sizes, excellent desserts, large menu

Great Sandwich * Vegan Gelato

Posted on 02 / 15 / 2013

This place is in the basement of the Hibiya Chanter mall, 2 blocks from Hibiya Koen/Park and near the Godzilla statue (what could be better?) Please see my review for the Chaya Isetan location for more info. I'll just upload some photos here from this location.

To sum it up though, nice casual atmosphere, most of the menu is vegan, great vegan gelato. They also have a mini-shop where they sell the same vegan baked goods and macro supplies they sell at the Isetan location. Enjoy!

Pros: Fantastic Matcha Gelato, Great Sandwich, Easy to Find
