First Review by BlisterBlue

Tasty & fresh but pricey - Edit

We ordered a tasting platter which included a little bit of several dishes (salad, soup, tortilla, herb tea and dessert), a rice & mushroom dish, waffles and a mint tea. Came to 6800 Yen (about £50) which is a little steep for lunch but the staff were lovely and food was delicious

Pros: All vegan menu, Delicious desserts including pancakes & waffles , Friendly staff

Cons: Bit pricey

Great food but it’s pricey! - Edit

We ended up eating here twice because it was the closest vegan place to our hotel. Had some tasty dishes - the mushroom dish was very tasty and the desserts were awesome. However this place was expensive! We have now been traveling around Japan for 10 day and this place has been the priciest so far. Some dishes were worth the money but many were not. Atmosphere was nice and there were good touches like fruit infused water and vegan desserts to buy and take away.

Pros: Lovely desserts, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Very expensive , Not all dishes worth the money

Best vegan pancakes! - Edit

The most amazing pancakes I've had since going vegan. Definitely worth the price tag. The mushroom curry is also quite good too! They have some great little takeaway items such as a traditional Japanese style pudding. Super tasty!

Pros: Cute interior decorations, Nice staff, PANCAKES

Good taste, good service! - Edit

That’s is an awesome meal. There are kinds of foods in the menu, every dish is delicate and all have cudgeled cook’s mind and the waiter’s service is also friendly. If I’ll visit Tokyo in the future I will go there again.

Pros: Good taste, Good service

Cons: some old at decoration

Shinjuku Vegan Eatery - Edit

Trendy and simple vegan food in Tokyo. The lunch menu was uncomplicated, but everything had by my party was delicious. I had the salad which had a fabulous dressing and came with veg meat and rice sides. The wine and beer options were also very good.

Fresh healthy vegan spot - Edit

A cute spot with a nice but small menu.
Very fresh and healthy well balances meals.
Saw comments about slow service but didn't experience this at all.

Pros: fresh and healthy

A bit of a disappointment - Edit

The pancake course is very good, but the rest is a bit meh. Try the beer cocktails. Other dishes are OK but not worth the price.

Pros: vegan pancakes, paaancaaakes!, beer cocktails

Cons: other dishes are a bit bland and uninspired

Rough Round the Edges Western Fine Dining - Edit

Interior design in this restaurant is spot on with painted concrete walls, plants and hanging lights. The menu is varied and good, but nothing special for a vegan restaurant. Perhaps this is the kind of place you might take somebody on a date. Everything comes across as healthy and organic, with vegan junk food lacking. Drinks were good - finally a properly poured beer without the giant foamy head so common to Japan!

Pros: Beautiful interior, very trendy, Right outside a metro exit so can’t miss it, Delicious food and beer, staff were very attentive

Cons: Has been inexplicably closed the last two times I , Food perhaps a little to obviously vegan / healthy, Too western, you’re in Tokyo - go eat Japanese cui

Worth paying a visit. - Edit

Really enjoyed the meal, had a starter, omelette, a main meal of mixed veggies and rice and based on previous reviews, the pancakes.
All very tasty and filling.....I was a bit worried I might leave still feeling peckish, hence ordering the omelette, but left feeling very satisfied.
People have mentioned the price in reviews, personally for 4000 yen I thought it good value....the pancakes where of a generous size.
However, it leads to the question, which is the better.....Journey's pancakes or Ripples' French toast?
Decisions decisions.......which one would make me go back?
I'd have to plum for....... Ripples' French toast....but I wouldn't complain either way, although Journey's main dishes are cleaner.

Pros: Fully vegan...on the whole clean and healthy.

Cons: None.

Great service, nice food. - Edit

Initially went here just before midday, but were told they were full so had to come back at 2. At 2pm, it was practically empty, so not sure why we couldn't eat earlier. However, the service was good and food was tasty, although it was quite basic.

Beautiful atmosphere - Edit

We loved the atmosphere of this restaurant and the safety of being able to order anything off the menu and knowing it would be vegetarian! (Hard to find experience in Tokyo where fish is in everything, even desserts)

Our meal was a little bit basic and pricey and not too filling -- but the people eating desserts and pancakes around us looked to be incredibly happy, so perhaps this is better as a dessert spot than a lunch spot.

Pros: Great atmosphere, Desserts looked good, Located centrally

Cons: Meal wasn't filling or extraordinary, A little expensive, Not many options

Loved our meal here - Edit

We went to this restaurant on our first night in Tokyo, it was within an easy walk of where we were staying and relatively easy to find. We really enjoyed everything we ordered, the food was full of flavour and presented beautifully. We especially loved the vegan creme brulee - I desperately wanted to go back for more the next night but we were in a different part of town.

Pros: Lovely, quiet setting inside., Food was delicious, Beautiful presentation, even of table water etc

Decent but entirely unexceptional - Edit

The service was good and the location was fine. The food disappointed. We ordered the soup de jour, (corn) and it tasted canned. The burger was good but the burrito salad was poor. I would not recommend to someone who wanted to enjoy the taste of their food or expected to appreciate fine vegan food. This restaurant caters to those who want imitation Western-style food with a vegan flair.
The deserts were mediocre

Pros: Service,, Location

Cons: salad just palatible , mediocre deserts

Best meal we had in Tokyo - Edit

So good we came back for a second time. The sets are a great way to try a bunch of stuff. The pancakes are a MUST try! Best pancakes I have ever had. Also loved the pudding, tiramisu and cookies that they sell as well (good for snacks on a Shinkansen!). Highly highly recommend.

Pros: delicious food, good atmosphere

Cons: bit more expensive than we were used to

Lovely Atmosphere & Staff - Edit

I came in here to inquire about take-away meal options for going to the airport, and although they don't offer any meals for take-away, the staff were exceptionally kind and helped me look up options at the airport online. The atmosphere inside was very pleasant and I'll go back for sure next time I'm in Tokyo. I bought some biscotti, which was really good, and a Christmas stolen bread for my family also.

Pros: Nice staff, Pleasant atmosphere, Great location

Wonderful - Edit

An adorable place with delicious food! It was my first day in Tokyo and I was a bit nervous about how eating would be but this place exceeded my expectations! I had tomato soup with brown rice and salad, pancakes and tiramisu pudding, all of which were completely delicious!!! Amazing service and place, I definitely plan on coming back at least once in my stay!

Delightful - Edit

We went for lunch two times because we just love the pancakes (1500yen) so much. I had visited 1.5 years ago and was equally blown away by how GOOD they were. My fiance tried the matcha pancakes (1800yen) and enjoyed them a lot. We also shared a side of fried soy chicken (700yen) and thought it was really delicious but it was a rather small serving.
The complimentary water is so good too!
Service was always great, quick and friendly. Make sure to reserve a spot online or in the restaurant beforehand.

Pros: all vegan, insanely good pancakes

Cons: quite pricey but worth it

Loved the mushroom curry! - Edit

We went back a few times whilst in Shinjuku. I has the mushroom curry both times as it was delicious and very filling! Had a spiced orange warm cocktail which was lovely and the tiramisu was divine!

Sad I didn't try the pancakes they looked epic... Will have to grab them next time I travel to Japan!

Pros: 100% vegan, Friendly staff, Nice restaurant

Cons: Some may say it's expensive but the quality of the
