Right under the Ghibli clock at Royal Park Hotel - Edit

Easy to make a reservation online but the place was not busy on a Sunday night when we visited. A nice space with surprisingly good food that's also very photogenic! My "vegan deli plate" included lots of varied tasty veggies which were very flavorful and the brown stew for my meat-loving boyfriend tasted just like "normal" meat stew even though there was no meat. My vegetarian friend was also happy with her "farmer's vegetable & super food salad & deli plate". Highly recommend the super delicious "fried wild craft potato - rosemary" - it was amazing! Could see the giant Ghibli clock from our seats. Also check out the awesome illuminations nearby at Caretta nearby with shows every 15 minutes in the winter. Would give it 5 stars but it's not possible here since they also offer some fish dishes.

Wholesome and delicious - Edit

This cafe serves really delicious vegan macrobiotic foods. All of the meals are reasonably priced and are full of organic goodness. The setting is serene and peaceful, and all the employees are lovely! They also have a range of cakes that are both vegan and gluten free, I tried the almond and chocolate tier cake.

Scrumptious desserts and good mains - Edit

Fairly easily found from Shimbashi station, although not exactly clear whether we were at ground level or higher. Anyway, if you find the hotel, I’m sure they’ll tell you which floor it is. Went here twice as food was so good and price was reasonable for the quality, including some absolutely scrumptious desserts.

A bonus of Chaya is that if you go outside and go up one level, you’ll find a big steampunk style clock and this gives a performance starting at 5.58pm and lasting about 5 minutes that is worth seeing and hearing.

Pros: very good food, pleasant ambience , not far from Shimbashi subway station

Cons: On the slightly dearer side but still reasonable

Nice vegan restaurant - Edit

This was my lucky stay, since this restaurant was located in the hotel I was in for the week in Tokyo and I didn't know.

It is a lovely vegan restaurant with a lot of different options and I think I've tested them almost all.

There is a little shop, so I even had several things for takeaway as well.

The location (for me since I was in the hotel, ideal!) was great, the place and interior very nice, the staff is lovely (they don't all speak English) and the food is amazing.

They propose a lot of vegan food for lunch, dinner, desserts...

Sometimes the opening hours were not always in line with the business activities I had.

Pros: Great food, Lovely staff, Nice place

Cons: Opening hours not ideal for me, Don't speak English

loveley cakes, nice food - Edit

Small portions as almost everywhere in Japan :) but when I visited, all the menu was vegan (no fish offered)

I had the daily plate and a slice of strawberry cake (very nice) and 2 scones to take away, slurp!

(staff cannot speak english, but some customers helped me out. also, the menu has english translation)

Pros: good cakes

Cons: small portions

yummy food - Edit

This is the 2nd time I've visited the Chaya chain. They have a nice selection of items. Very fresh foods - I ordered the kale & avocado taco salad. This location is a nice and relaxed.

Their menu should probably note which items contain fish.

Lovely peaceful atmosphere in upmarket setting - Edit

Really nice to find a restaurant which is mainly vegan, and also has raw vegan options. It is quite pricey, but the portions are a decent size.

Pros: Lots of vegan choice, The few fish dishes are clearly marked, Beautifully presented

My favourite! - Edit

This is one of my favourite places in Tokyo.
The portions are not big but for me they are more than enough + they are very pretty.
Since I don't eat frieds things sometimes when I order deli plate there are things that I can't eat but then I can share them with my friends.
I love their gluten free pasta, "meat" balls and brown rice.

The restaurant is easy to find and it is spacious and neat.

I love it!

Pros: delicious and nice, easy to find, big

Good food but portions are a bit small - Edit

The athmosphere is very calm so if you need a break, this is the place. The food is good and there is an English menu. The portions are a bit small though.

packaged food simply heated up? - Edit

I was a bit disappointed. First of all, I ordered a pasta dish, which I thought was to be a tomato-cream sauce, but in reality it was for the most part a tomato sauce. Secondly, after eating and paying I wandered around the shop looking at the items they have for sale, and saw the exact tomato sauce which I had just eaten, but in a package. I guess my pasta sauce that evening came from such a package, in which case, why bother eating out?

Love it! - Edit

All vegetarians and vegans know the problem: Japan is a great country, until it is time to eat. Every day is a new challenge. "Chaya Macrobiotics" in Shiodome (Tokyo) was a life saver for me. The sign on the building proudly states: "Fresh seasonable vegetables and whole grains, no meat, no eggs, no dairy, no refined sugar". For reasons beyond my comprehension fish is on the menu. However, the (English!) menu clearly states which dishes have fish in them so one can easily steer clear of them.

During my three week stay in Tokyo I went back to Chaya many times and basically I tried everything on the menu, except for the dishes with fish in it. Every time I had a tasty and healthy meal. My favourites were the deep fried tofu wrapped in seaweed (starter) and the soy milk risotto (main dish).

Portions are rather small and Chaya isn't exactly cheap. A "set menu" doesn't mean several servings (starter, main, desster), but just a big plate offering some extra variety and costs about 1200 yen. Yet, the high quality product and good service make up for it.

The prestigious location might also explains the somewhat higer price. Chaya Macrobiotics is in the same building as the "Royal Park Hotel Shiodome" (on the ground floor), making it extremely easy to find. From the Shiodome station it is a one minute walk. From Ginza main street it is a 5 minute walk. In other words: easy to find, conventiently located.

Pros: easy to find, good, healthy food, English menu

Cons: Not cheap, Small portions

vegan + seafood (within the royal park hotel) - Edit

Nice spot at the ground level of the royal park hotel, close to media / advertising companies.

Definitely worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood. Wouldn't travel a great distance to come here.

Pros: service, clearly marked vegan / seafood dishes , vegan desserts

Cons: pricey / high rent location
