This place is a savior!!

5 Posted on 06 / 01 / 2011

I absolutely love this place.In the meat-eating society that is Japan, a place like this is a savior for long-term vego residents. I was fortunate to live a 5 min walk from Greens for the past year and ate there very regularly (at least a couple of times a week). The food is great and varied and the value is fantastic - all you can eat buffet for 700yen (if you buy 5 token packs) or 800yen per visit. What I love most is the staff, they are so sweet and all volunteers. Greens is a non-profit org that supports people with disabilities and trains them to wait and cook etc. What better people to give your money to. Not that you need a reason other than the value for money and great selection (rotating) menu. If you are in the area...please support these guys. They deserve it and you do to!! It's also non-smoking which is hard to find in Japan and the atmosphere is pretty quiet and laid back. So dive in there and pig out I say. PLEASE: do not be put off by the remark saying "no english spoken" , its a buffet, no english needed for ordering, besides a couple of the staff certainly understand enough to get your point across.

Small salad bar but everything is very filling and nutritious. One of the hot dishes had cheese and upon hearing I was vegan the kitchen cooked a cheese-free version of the dish. Exceptional value. Best vegan food I had in Osaka.

I would rank the food a little below most of the other vegetarian restaurants I've been to in Osaka, but still quite good, and the best value I've seen in Osaka (800 yen if you don't order a drink). They had a salad bar, two main dishes, soup, and dessert. Directions: Leave Osakako Station from exit 2 and just go straight. After several blocks it will be on your right.

Pros: good value, English signage, friendly staff

If you plan to visit the area around Osakako and Tempozan (there is a giant ferris wheel!) then you should definitely check this place out.
Their buffet lunch is good value although there isn't a huge selection. They did have a lot of nice fresh salad to choose from and some tasty dressing. Their bread, however, was out of this world! I wanted to buy a loaf to take out but unfortunately they didn't have any left.
I wouldn't make the trip out to that side of Osaka just for this restaurant but if you're in the area, it's worth a look.

Pros: cheap, friendly staff, amazing bread!
Cons: not a huge selection, closes early
