Yummy pitas

Very nice place, a bit expensive but they have good food and a pleasant interior. I've had the set with 2 pitas (your choice of filling) a few times and would easily come back again for more, especially when I get my kebab cravings! The choice of fillings for this set are: chicken kebab, hummus, avocado, falafel and baba ghanoush.

Kinda pricey for falafel

I got the standard falafel (half a pitta filled to the brim) to eat in and it was 500JPY, which was a bit high in my opinion. Falafel was good, but not the best I've had, and not that spicy.

Pros: Fast service
  • vegetarian

really good food, good service

Have enjoyed the vegetarian food here on every occasion. There is a pleasant little courtyard area where you can eat too, which is quite rare for Japan...
Beware the sauce they use on the pita sandwiches tho, it is likely yoghurt and therefore not vegan...

Pros: nice setting, good choice, reasonable price
Cons: out of the way

I got the order of falafels and hummus. It was around 1000 yen and came with six falafels, a generous portion of hummus, two pitas, cabbage and cucumbers. It was filling and absolutely delicious and best of all, completely vegan! It might be a little hard to find, but it's worth it. Near Kyoto University. Find the intersection of Imadegawa and Higashioji, then head west on Imadegawa. It's tucked away on your right down a side street, near the Demachiyanagi stop.

Pros: Delicious, Friendly staff, Great vegan options
