Fresh Ramen

Cauliflower and sweet potato in Ramen is not my vibe, however it was a cute place in a mall and nice to eat a sustainable meal as vegan food was hard to come by in the area. Had a very earthy/fresh taste. Not extremely delicious though honestly, just okay.

Just fine

I was expecting more from this place, but I got the vegan rainbow ramen and the broth just tasted like a standard vegetable stock. Not nearly as good as Tantan or other vegan ramen imo.

Good ramen but not as photoed on menu

On menu they show lows of vegetables and in big slices/quantities however not the case. Don’t mind they did substitutes but would have been good to have more veggies.

Flavourful broth and nice noodles.

Expect a wait as this is a popular venue.

Good fast rich vegan Ramen

The place is in the B2 (basement) of a giant department store, with dozens of other eateries- without HappyCow we would have never found the place. The ramen is loaded with vegetables and a rich broth and they are happy to add toppings (for a price). There’s room for maybe 15 customers all Sitting around a big round counter in a well lit food arcade. We arrived before six pm and there was a line of seven people ahead of us (in contrast to the other eateries which did not have lines) so it’s clearly popular, and we were the only gaijins there. Good establishment.

Worth the wait

Great vegan ramen. Was a queue but moved quickly and showed its popularity. Be cautious going towards closing as I got the last vegan ramen which was fate after raring up to it for 4 days.

tasty vegan ramen

The line here can be long but moves fairly quickly. The vegan ramen was on point with the right amout of chewiness that I like in my noodles. Ordering is done via a touchscreen and is in English/Chinese/Japanese so it's pretty hard to go wrong here.

It's a little tricky to find but if you head towards the Lumine 1 building (not to be confused with the adjacent Lumine 2 building) and head towards the basement (B2F), next to a very long pair of escalators you'll see a food court hidden away in a doorway off to the side.

Pros: multilingual ordering system, fast service, tasty ramen

Cons: long lines

Great choice

Top up their vegan soup with yuzu. It was refreshing n tantalising. Manager was patient and removed onions/garlic from our vegan order.

Pros: Refreshing soup , fresh vegetables , Friendly manager, Reasonable price

Cons: Individual seating only

It’s ok. Nothing mindblowing

The only vegan options is the rainbow ramen for around 1300 円. The veggies where nice but the broth tasted a little bland, for the high price I think it’s not the best. But if you’re hungry and need something to eat fast, go for it.

Pros: No waiting time , Big portion

Cons: A little bit bland , Expensive , Only one vegan option

Afuri - Shinjuku/Harajuku

I've been to two Afuri locations and felt the same about both. They offer vegan ramen, but don't wait until the end of the night to go since they tend to run out.

The vegan ramen looked beautiful and I was excited to dig my chopsticks into it. However, the broth needed some help (it was bland) and made the whole soup boring. The noodles were also super thin and were slightly overcooked. That said, this was not enjoyable and I did not bother eating more than half of my ramen/broth (and I *always* finish the broth). Hopefully this was fluke...but I don't think it was...I might consider trying another one of their sister locations next time to see if there's an improvement elsewhere.

Unique ramen broth

Despite limited seating, I had a comfortable meal. There were hangars for you to hang your bulky coats on and baskets to place your belongings in.

There was only one vegan option, the rainbow ramen, but this ramen is definitely worth a try as it has a real unique broth with great depth in flavour ◡̈

Pros: Delicious , Unique, not your typical ramen

Cons: Quite pricey, Limited seating, Only one vegan option

Decent vegan ramen

Definitely have to give it a try if you are around the area. You can easily find the ramen shop at the basement of the shopping centre. There is a rather long queue during peak hours so try to go earlier to avoid the crowd.

Pros: Vegan option available

Cons: Expensive , Slightly Long wait

Rainbow Ramen

The shop is located conveniently near Shinjuku station and can be easily located. Despite only one vegan option, the ramen is good and will definitely recommend this place.

Cons: Slightly more costly , Long queue during lunch hour

Only one option, but a good one.

I'm not a ramen guy, but I was nicely suprised trying out the only vegan option available: it was nice.

... still, only one option. Not that great. Good thing that Wired Bonbon is on the 6th floor of the same shopping mall!

Pros: Convenient location., Low prices

Cons: Only one food choice

Rainbow Ramen

Take a ticket from the ticket machine and here we go!!!
Veggies were cut kinda thin so it was challenging to eat em with chopsticks.

Pros: Clear Declaration at ticket machine, Free Water refill, Cute Spoons

Cons: Can be crowded, Sold Out at my first try to eat there.

Was out of vegan ramen

I'm glad this place has vegan ramen, because every ramen place should just do vegan ramen but I'd be really hesitant to go back, unless I have a bunch of time to kill and I'm not really that hungry. Took us a while to find it in the downstairs mall and then they were out of vegan ramen when we got there.

Cons: One vegan option, Runs out
