A favourite

Love this place! The vegan sushi is amazing, as was the calamari and noodles. Great dessert, too. Looking forward to going again.

Beautiful people

Colline de Tara was our last resort after everything closer to our hotel was closed. We were desperate and wet from the rain, but they instantly cheered us up.
The food was delicious and quite different from what we tried before in Japan, but the portions could have been a bit bigger. We enjoyed life music there. A very nice place.

LOVED eating at this wonderful, vegan restaurant in a residential neighborhood.

Chi, proprietor, cook, server and host welcomed us. We felt like we were honored guests in her house. We had a lovely evening. My husband was working in Nagoya, tried this place and came back when I visited. One of the best meals we had in Nagoya.

Pros: Welcoming space, Good music, great food and service

Cons: none

Wonderful food, very friendly staff, great value.

Definitely worth the short trip from Nagoya Station to this funky little place. The set menu I had was a wonderful noodle soup with fantastic broth, seaweed, mushrooms, green onions...just divine. Added to that we’re fried rice balls, croquets, and assorted pickles, including a really surprising citrus seaweed.
There was just one person working when I was there, and she was hostess, chef, server, and cashier. As a result, it wasn’t a quick meal, but the gallery upstairs and the comfortable atmosphere made that a benefit.

Delicious food and friendly service

I felt so welcome as soon as I walked in the door! Staff were very kind, they did not have an English menus so the lady ran through everything on the menu for me. When she brought the food out she explained what each thing was and that they grew most of the ingredients on their farm in Hokkaido. I highly recommend going here!

Pros: All vegan menu, Friendly staff, Delicious traditional Japanese vegan food

Beautiful spot, kind owner

The location was easy to find. The cute exterior stands obviously in contrast to the city around it.

Loved this place from the moment we walked in. Very calm and friendly atmosphere. There was a set lunch menu so ordering at the counter was very easy, and we got our own caraffe of water which was so nice on a hot day.

The food was all prepared fresh for us and delicious.

Impressive and Delicious Vegan Food

Read more in this vegan Nagoya guide:

Colline de Tara is an all-vegan restaurant that serves great quality food. One of my favorites in Nagoya. I’d highly recommend their dinner set as you can try many different dishes.

The dinner set comes with an appetizer plate with 3 small dishes, a salad, a plate with 2 fried dishes, 3 sushi, and a dessert. I also added 500 yen to try their en men (noodles) and a drink.

All the dishes are delicious. I especially like the vege balls and tofu cheesecake. The vege ball is made with okara (the pulp of tofu) and mushroom. It is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. It’s also extremely flavorful. On the other hand, the cheesecake has smooth texture with a balance between sweet and tangy flavors.

Overall the food in Colline de Tara is simple yet very well-made. This dinner set is about 2200 yen (not including the noodles and drink), but considering it is like a tasting menu, it is worth it.

One other thing to mention is the building that the restaurant is in. It is very open with 3 levels. The wooden decor feels traditional and rustic. It adds to the great experience of the meal.

Pros: All vegan, Well-made and delicious food , Unique decor and welcoming service

Vegan heaven in Nagoya!!

Had an amazing vegan dinner!” Loved the rustic atmosphere and the owner lady very lovely ! Will definitely come back in Nagoya !! It’s very possible to go if you stay near the castle or JR Nagoya station.

How to get there : Subway yellow line to Chikusa 千種
駅 Exit no 5 to the left until you see a big shopping mall “FIT HOUSE” then cross the signal to your right, enter the narrow street next to the signboard that says Torijin then go straight for about 4 min until you see the blue house on your left.

Delicious organic food with nice atmosphere

This is an all-vegan, all-organic restaurant that has a fantastic selection of dishes. I got a course, which included appetizers, a main, vegan sushi, and dessert, all of which were very delicious. The atmosphere was very nice, with very natural decor of mostly wood. The only reason why I marked it down a star is because the dishes were a bit small portion-wise, but that's probably because I had gotten a course.

Pros: Lovely ambience, Nice selection, Delicious organic food

Cons: portions on the small side
