Super sweet place, with outdoor garden seating in front. Lots if cute laid-back character, good dinner selection and everything tasty and healthy. Staff spoke some English, was very friendly.

Pros: enjoyable atmosphere, yummy food, walkable from nagahoribashi station

This is a great (though small) place tucked away between two metal sheds, and is really quite hard to find. Thankfully, Japanese taxi drivers are very adept at getting you to the general area based on the address of a place.

The lunch menu generally has three vegan dishes, of which I liked the veggie plate the best (it came with salad, soup, brown rice and cooked vegetables doused with soy mayonnaise, which was absolutely delicious). For dessert, the vegan cheesecake and the chocolate mousse were delicious. The menu was in english and the staff spoke enough english to get the order right.

Pros: Tasty items, Great staff, Great desserts
Cons: Slightly hard-to-find, Space is small

Really sweet staff and amazing food. I had the risotto and my partner had the tofu quiche. The food was full of flavour. It is true the service was slow but I personally don't think that made my experience any worse.

Pros: Good Flavour, Cute, Nice Staff
Cons: slow

This restaurant is very cute and the food is rather interesting. It's delicious, but my main complaint would have to be that the service is very slow. We got there pretty late, and that could explain why, perhaps? When we got there, there were others finishing up dinner. We ordered an appetizer (samosas with hijiki inside) and two dishes (one of them was soy risotto). The appetizer came out fairly quickly, and the two dishes followed shortly thereafter. However, still being hungry, we ordered a third dish and it took forever to come out. When it did, it was very good, but I'm not sure it was worth the wait. The last dish was a pasta with shiso (which didn't have dashi in it, by the way), Japanese basil, and nori. It was a very interesting twist on Italian food, but it took way too long to come out! We also had an apple pie dessert which was alright.

The staff was knowledgeable of veganism and very friendly.
They don't take credit cards, though - cash only.

such a lovely little Restaurant! everything is organic and cooked with love :) the two women (owners?) who worked there where very friendly and interested. One of them spoke a tiny bit English ( I speak Japanese (well, not fluently), so that was not a problem).
It was delicious and the prices were okay for an organic restaurant in Japan.

Pros: Organic, homey atmosphere, friendly staff
Cons: portions are a little bit small

I went for dinner. The Japanese menu had dairy and egg clearly labeled although you should ask about fish (it is in the shiso sauce). Several excellent vegan desserts were available.

Pros: atmosphere, food
Cons: space a bit small, fish could be more clearly labeled
