tasty & flavourful - Edit

The soup was delicious but was just a starter size

The stir fry had heaps of flavour

They have a full vegan menu with 9 dishes

Pros: lots of flavour

Cons: smallish serves

Fabulous vegan option Chinese food in Nara - Edit

We popped in here for lunch whilst touring Japan in August.

The staff were friendly, polite and helpful, and the restaurant clearly gets the vegan thing as is made obvious by the clearly labelled (English included) menu. I've always loved Chinese food and this was by far the best I've enjoyed since going full vegan. Just beautiful. Try the sweet & sour tofu! I am sure you'll be delighted. And the price was pretty cheap.

Pros: Beautiful food, Friendly, Well priced

Very tasty! - Edit

Was very happy to find this place in Nara. There aren't that many vegan options to begin with, and there are NO vegan Chinese options, so finding this place was a treat.
We had some sweet and sour "chicken", ma-bo tofu, and something lovely with cashews in it. It was all very tasty and not too pricey to boot.
The vegan menu is a separate menu from the "regular" menu, so that was helpful too.

I should add that the first time I visited this place, it was during the o-bon summer holiday. I say the vegan menu sign and immediately rushed in--BUT they said that during holiday season they don't serve items from the vegan menu. What a bummer! Honestly, I got pretty angry and wasn't too eager to return--but my craving for Chinese eventually got the better of me :)

Pros: Tasty, Separate vegan menu, A good number of options

Cons: Not cheap--but not that expensive either, No vegan menu during "busy season"

Loved it! - Edit

A gem in Nara. As the description says, there were several vegan options and unlike generally in Japan, they gave us our food to share. It was really good and reasonably priced. One note: the "main dishes" are relatively small (though full of flavor) so make sure to order rice separately as well to fill your stomach.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Good value

Cons: Small portions
