4 Posted on 04 / 09 / 2014

Love the ambience.
Vegan menu avalaible n printed in english.
Staff speak good english and friendly.
If you are bored with japanese veg cuisine, this is the best place for a change of taste.

Pros: Indian decor
Cons: a bit costly (due to location at Ginza)

Vegan Indian in Tokyo

This location had several vegan sets on the menu - which was in English. All dishes with dairy were marked clearly. My waiter spoke English also, a plus! The food was delicious & plentiful. The vegan tapioca dessert was a delight!

The decor was bright and clean. The fountain provided a pleasant auditory background to the meal.

fantastic lunch spot, very vegan-friendly

I've been going to Nataraj for their lunch buffet for years and it keeps getting better. I visited today and they have added a vegan dessert option to their very reasonable 1100yen lunch buffet. They also offer vegan naan with the buffet and at least 3 of the 4 daily curries are vegan. Easy to find and a great location, I highly recommend it for lunch.

Pros: cheapest vegan-friendly buffet in Tokyo, quality food, large variety
Cons: dinner is kind of expensive

I've been looking for a fully vegetarian, Indian restaurant in Tokyo for a while and glad to find this place. The food was great and the staff are very friendly.

The only downside for me is that dinner is a little expensive. Although, I'll definitely come back.

Pros: Delicious!, Staff are very nice.
Cons: A little expensive...but that's Ginza.

Almost perfect

A fully vegetarian restaurant in the heart of Ginza, Tokyo? Surely not! But it is true. The Ginza branch is housed in a narrow building a short walk from the station. There are two or three floors availably for dining. Decor is Indian.

The first time I went, I went alone and enjoyed a number of dishes. Food was perfect and service excellent. That said, it was a tad expensive.

The next time I went was with family and friends. We enjoyed the buffet lunch (all you can eat) which came out very affordable. With four curries, rice, naan and dessert, not bad at all. My eldest son loved the saffron rice and ate a bucket of the milk dessert!

That said, it is odd that there are no South Indian dishes on the menu. I mean with all the diverse curries (tamarind, buttermilk) dosai (fermented rice/bean crepe), ottopam and mind boggling array of chutneys, pickles and soups of South Indian cuisine, who could go wrong?

Oh well, great place nonetheless.

Pros: Diverse menu, good service, lunch time buffet
Cons: Ordering seperate dishes expensive, What? No south Indian food?


very good food, nice atmosphere

First off I must confess to being a passionate Indian food lover. And here the Indian food was great. It was very tastey but here's the best part, not too greasey or heavy. Sometimes Indian curries in the UK can be so heavy - perhaps too much ghee for my stomach. But no such problems here. Simply deilcious food. The menu was in English and the staff spoke English too. Mmm, I could just eat another now for my lunch! Shame I am now thousands of miles away...
My only slight disappointment is that despite being on the 7th floor there are no windows so great views of Ginza, whilst you are eating, are absent. It's on the wrong side of the building for Ginza views.

Pros: Light (for a curry!), English spoken, Location
Cons: No windows

Good food but very expensive

We had a very nice post-theater dinner at Nataraj--they have excellent vegan dishes (loved the ones with gluten/seitan), and the portions were good-sized. The atmosphere was very pleasant. My only complaint is the cost--dinner was 8,100 yen for three people.

Pros: Good variety, Excellent flavor, Pleasant atmosphere
Cons: Expensive

Awesome Indian food

We really loved this place - the food was top quality and the service was great. The setting was really lovely too.

It was a little expensive though. I think we paid 6000yen between us, which is considerably more than I'm used to paying at an Indian restaurant, though it was smack bang in the middle of Ginza and a pretty classy place, so I guess it's to be expected.

I will defintely visit this place next time I'm in Tokyo.

Pretty good

The food is kind of expensive and the atmosphere is very fancy so we felt a little out of place. There weren't that many vegan options, but overall the food was good.

Pros: good food, nice staff, english menu
