Hearty and Affordable!

Delish curry sauce with vegetables came with potatoes, carrot and beans. Nice to have a vegan option that doesn’t come with soy meat automatically! Great option for a cheap lunch. Big portion!

Good selection of options

A number of vegetarian and vegan options available, I had the vege curry (vegan curry sauce found in the lowcarb menu on the ordering system) with soya hamburger and vegetables. It was very tasty and you had the option to change spice level to your taste.

Pros: Very tasty, Cheap

Cons: Vegan option is a bit hidden on menu

Good meal!

Ordered a half veggie half mushroom curry, and it tasted pretty good!
Note: normal rice portion was a bit much for us (300 g)
There are multiple veggie options on this menu (veggie and mushroom at the least)

Pros: Dedicated menu items, Fast service

Go-to Kare Place

Can’t go wrong with Coco Ichibanya if you are craving for Japanese Kare. Love how you can customize the options and they have accessible branches in various locations. Always order the veggie Kare with soy meat. Filling and delicious every time.

Pros: Lots of options with affordable price, Accessible branches everywhere , Fast serving and big volume

Cons: Some options are quite expensive

CoCo Ichibanya

Apparently this is a famous place (according to my coworker)...I had no idea, but I see why, because it's very good.

We ordered Coco's delivery for lunch one day and it was delicious. I'm not sure I could have navigated the menu well without my Japanese coworkers, but they were sure to verify and confirm the vegetable curry was vegan. There's not many options to add to this dish, but I got a side of garlic with the curry. So essentially, the dish was comprised of a dark curry sauce, my side of garlic, and rice. Just mix it all together and it will be pretty tasty. I would definitely each lunch here again (as long as I can figure out how to order the vegan item)!

Filling vegan curry

I'm not a fan of Japanese curry but went for a try based on reviews. I followed the advice of other reviewers and just went for the vegetarian menu, which is vegan with 6 options.
Regular size of rice was plenty. Upping the spice level made it nicely spicy but not too much.
Overall good hearty food, fast and cheap. Will come back.
Probably feels good in winter.

Pros: 6 good vegan options , Filling!, Cheap: ¥750 yen each

Great tasting vegan curry (Separate vegan menu!) 🌱

Read the Vegan Tokyo Guide on https://itravelforveganfood.com/vegan-tokyo-guide/

Coco Ichibanya is a big curry chain in Japan. It’s not vegan or vegetarian, but they have some vegan options available in selected stores.

The curry is cooked separately for each dish, but it seems to use the same oil to deep fry things with other non vegan food.

The curry is very flavorful, and you can choose whether you want it spicy (I chose the mild one). For this dish, the eggplant is deep fried and the tomato sauce comes in a separate bowl.

For less than 1000 yen in Tokyo, it’s a good meal that doesn’t break the bank.

Pros: Delicious curry, Cheap, Customizable spiciness

Separate vegetarian menu!!

I would give this place 5 stars if the app allowed me to! This is one of the best restaurants with vegetarian options in Tokyo. They have a pretty good selection of vegetarian curries on an entirely separate vegetarian menu. The portions are also very large and very filling. I will definitely be coming here again :)

Pros: Separate vegetarian menu, cozy ambiance

Cons: Limited seating available in the restaurant

‘It is what it says on the tin’

Cheep, tasty Japanese curry’s, with half a dozen variations on the theme. Helpful staff. This was a straight forward, quick tasty place to eat.... a life saver for a jet lagged vegan who speaks no Japanese

Pros: Tasty, Cheap, Helpful staff

Cons: Not the place to go if your not into curry

We stumbled upon this place, really quick and easy meal - big portion sizes and you can add extra rice/change level of spice! Would recommend if you’re looking for a quick meal around shibuya.

Great for vegetarians!

CoCo has a separate menu for vegetarians (and a menu in English)! It made me so happy to see multiple curry options for me to choose from, as well as getting to choose how spicy it is from their spice chart. Open late which is great for me. The food it’s self was really good and they are big portion sizes!

Pros: vegetarian menu, nice employees , open late

Cons: limited space

Great Easy Option

Very clearly marked menu. Staff was very helpful. They speak English, though obviously it's easier if you know Japanese. Probably the closest option to shibuya station. Tastes delicious, but no mock meat.

Pros: clearly marked menu , cheap , close to station

Cons: no proteins (but veggie options plentiful)
