Rataskaevu 8, Harju, Tallinn, Estonia


This is one of my favourite veggie restaurants anywhere. It's a pretty classy place and a little expensive for Tallinn but totally worth it.

The food is gorgeous.

Independencia 1790, Valparaíso, Valparaiso, Chile

delicious and hearty food

I visited last week with a non-vege friend who lives in Vina. I ordered a gluten casserole with carrots, potatoes and lovely seasoning. It was simple but very tasty and healthy. Exactly what i needed after a month in Argentina with far too many pizzas and pastas. My friend got the lunch set which was huge and looked great.

Extensive menu with lots of variety in dishes -both Chilean and international.

Lovely lady working there.

Would recommend.

Southwest corner of Sanjo-dori and Higashinotoin-dori, 2nd floor, Kyoto, Japan

I love this place

I visit this place every time I'm in Kyoto. It's a simple, cramped little restaurant at the top of a winding metallic staircase and not terribly easy to find, though if you have a map of the area, you should be able to find it OK - Lonely Planet's Japan/Kyoto guides list this restaurant and it is on one of their Kyoto maps.

The food is really good value - you can get a main for 700-800 yen, though if you want to try a couple of things, you are looking at more like 1500-2000yen.

The fried gluten is scrumtious, as is their tofu steak. Their salads are tasty and the fruit is super fresh.

As another reviewer mentioned, the restaurant isn't 100% vegan/vegetarian. Last time I was there, a lady next to me was eating fish. But it is mostly vegetarian food and the staff have a pretty good understanding of vegetarianism/veganism - which is pretty amazing for Japan!

The ladies who run the place are very warm and welcoming.

There is an organic food shop underneath this restaurant that is worth checking out too.

42 Drury Street, Dublin, Ireland

Nice food but no tables!

The salads here are great - I really like the salad bar and can manage to squeeze a lot into their take away boxes. Their vege food selection in the fridge is also really good.

It would be great if they had a small eating area - not just the bench beside the window.

Green Bldg 1F, 5-1-17 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan

Great Bento!

After living in Japan for more than 12 months, this was the first time I'd actually found a veggie bento!! It came in a lovely box and was delicious and filling though not cheap at around 1300yen. I also tried one of their soy cream tarts, which was delicious. My non-veggie friend thoroughly enjoyed her curry.

Staff were very friendly.

Menu looks great - just wish I'd been able to visit a few more times to sample more of the options.

1-19-8 Kunitachi-shi, Tokyo, Japan

Every time I go to Nagoya, I visit Chien-Fu

This place is really great. It is 100% vegetarian and almost entirely vegan (some of the desserts have milk in them) so it is both delicious and easy dining for vegos!!

I went with veggie friends and we liked the food so much that we kept on ordering, just to sample as much as possible.

The portions aren't huge, but it's inexpensive so you can afford to order several things without spending a huge amount.

Their Ma Po Eggplant dishes are delectable, as is their Chow Mein, Fried "chicken" and noodle soups.

They also sell veggie products include soy meat and noodle soups (with veggie flavours included).

If you get to Kamimaezu Station in Nagoya, take exit 9 and head towards the Osu 301 building - in the arcade that runs all the way from near Osu Kannon Station. It's on the 3rd floor.

59 William Street South, Dublin, Ireland

Hit or miss

Sometimes the food is really good, but other times just average.

The wraps are really good though, as are the cakes.

31 Neal Street, Covent Garden, London, England

Nice food

I really like this place. When I lived in London I used to go once a fortnight. The food is tasty and the portions are decent sizes. It is always crowded though, so unfortunately I usually got take-away.

73 Great Georges Street, Dublin, Ireland

Juicy goodness

The food here is tasty and interesting with a mix of things like Mushroom wellington pies, vegetable terrines, vege tajines and cous cous. The breakfast options here are also good - particularly the corn fritters and huevos rancheros.

There is a nice vibe in the restaurant and it's well run.

The location is handy too.

It's perhaps a tiny bit overpriced, but overall a great place to eat.

4 Calle Mayor, Madrid, Spain

Good, tasty, quick food

Quick, healthy and very tasty!!

Minami-aoyama, 5-5-21, Minatoku, Tokyo, Japan

Lovely cake

I stopped here for some morning tea and tried a delightful apple crumble. A little pricey though. Nice atmosphere and right next to the Aveda shop.

7 Die Cui Road, Yangshuo, China

Good but room for improvement

The restaurant itself looks lovely and the food on the menu looks delightful. There is a good selection of food available so that you could come back several times to sample a bunch of delights on offer.

We ordered the Buddhist's Delight and the Gluten Steak (can't remember exactly what it was called!) along with the fried broccoli with garlic.

The Buddhist's Delight was really nice, though a little oily.

The Gluten Steak tasted great, but the texture wasn't so great - it was too rubbery. Took a lot of effort to chew threw it. But the flavour was really lovely.

The Broccoli was just a little bit too greasy but otherwise was pretty good.

It's a little pricey compared with other veggie options in Yangshuo. We didn't visit any other veggie restaurants in Yangshuo but found that we were able to find plenty of options in general Chinese and other restaurants around town.

I'd go back again, but would try some different dishes.

80 Ma May Street, Hanoi, Vietnam

Good food, nice place

Yes, it's much more expensive than a lot of places in Hanoi, but the food is really good and the atmosphere is really nice.

6-20 Udagawa-cho, Shibuya-ku, Parashion Shibuya Bldg Ste102, Tokyo, Japan

A nice simple meal

I visited with my mum (non veggie) a few months back. We both ordered the veggie burgers. The burgers were tasty and filling though maybe could have had a little more spice!

It's not the easiest place to find though it's very close to downtown Shibuya.

26-1 Guozijian Dajie, Hutong, Beijing, China

Fabulous and good value

I visited this restaurant twice whilst visiting Beijing. On both occasions I was highly impressed by the quality and value on offer here. The buffet is super value at 68RMB and the variety of dishes on offer is astounding. Food was both interesting and flavoursome and there was a lot of variety on offer.

I particularly enjoyed the "pepper steak" dish, but on the whole, the food was excellent.

Unlimited drinks were available too including tea, coffee, cordial and milo.

If you don't want to order the buffet, English and Chinese menus are available.

Some staff speak a little English.

Service was excellent.

They take credit cards here.

I'd absolutely go back here.

19 Wicklow Street, Dublin, Ireland

My favourite restaurant in Dublin

I really miss this place since leaving Dublin :(

I used to go at least once a week for lunch or dinner. It is always jammers with people, and you often end up sharing with strangers, but it's a friendly place, with nice staff, and amazingly yummy food.

I love their spanokopita and their garlic potato salad with hazelnuts is awesome.

I have heard rumours that they are expanding - fingers crossed as it would be nice to have a little more space.

For 10-11euro a plate, it's super value.

17 Prince Albert St, The Lanes, Brighton, England

Great veggie bangers and mash

I enjoyed a veggie breakfast here with veggie sausages on mashed potato with great wedges on the side.

Nice ambience here and the prices are ok too.

4 Aungier Street, Dublin, Ireland


I have been to this one and the one on Abbey St - but I think this one is that little bit nicer.

The staff are friendly and there is plenty of space. The food is tasty and filling.

It's good value food for Dublin.
