First Meal in Tokyo - Edit

This place was a short walk from the hotelz Tokyu Stay Aoyama. It's in a really nice area. It's on the second floor, which seems pretty normal for businesses here, but they had good signage so you shouldn't miss it. They spoke enough English for us to communicate and we're all incredibly nice. The food was great and I'd eat here for every meal if I could.

Pros: A) all vegan. B) healthy food. C) they have to go

Cons: A) not exactly cheap. two of us ate lunch for $40., B) doesn't open early enough., C) set meals. D) healthy food.

Great Place to Eat with Non-Vegan Friends ヴィーガンじゃなくても友達とも良いレストラン - Edit

We ate here with three friends who were not vegan. It was nice to go out with non-vegan friends and not be limited to a couple of menu items. The souvlaki was out of this world! The other food items we sample ranged from okay to good but our non-vegan friends enjoyed everything. Good sake selection. Some pairing suggestions would have been nice.

日本語があまり良くないのに頑張ります!3人のヴィーガンじゃない友達とこちらへ来ました。やっと、友達といっしょに出かけて全部のメニュから注文できたところです。 スッヴラキ(ギリシャのサンド)はめっちゃうまかったです。他の食べ物は美味しくてヴィーガンじゃない友達も好きだったみたいです。色々な日本酒もあったがもうし良いペーリングのアドバイスがあったらもっと良かったかもしれません。

Pros: Fancy place ファンシー, Good place to introduce non-vegans to good food   , Several sakes on the menu 色々な日本酒

Cons: Lacking sake pairing suggestions 日本酒ペーリングがない

Nice - Edit

This is a fancy vegan restaurant, I go here when I'm in the mood to splurge a little and eat something on a "Nouvelle Cuisine" tip. The food is very good and presented in an imaginative way. The menu choices are creative and original. You could go there on a date or to impress someone. The decor is stylish and it's handy for Omotesando.

The only problem is the sizes are frankly very small. I always feel that after the meal I'm paying more than I thought I was going to pay, and I'm in the mood for a burger. Also the service can be a little on-and-off. I'm still in mourning for their previous place, the excellent Pure Cafe, which was a lot more down-to-earth but at least you knew you had eaten something when it was time to leave.

Pros: Stylish, Delicious, Imaginative

Cons: Small portions

One of my favorite in Tokyo! - Edit

I love 8ablish! They started serving 2 kinds of course recently, 3,800 yen or 5,000 yen.
I tried both, but 5,000 yen course is too much for me, I prefer 3,800 yen course :)
All dishes are soooo delicious and all sweets are amazing, especially I love gateau chocolat, the best ever!!!

Love 8ablish! - Edit

This place is so nice and the food is all vegan and honestly delicious. It is a little pricey, but it's a great atmosphere, great service, and the food quality is fantastic. They also have great vegan & organic wine options. A friend of mine and I come here once in a while for a "fancy" lunch or dinner out when we are in town.

Pros: Great food, Good service, Clean & pretty atmosphere

Cons: Expensive

Best vegan restaurant in Japan! - Edit

I can't believe this place doesn't have better reviews! I was in Tokyo for ten days on my honeymoon and my vegan husband and I both ate here 3 times! There are a lot of other nice vegan restaurants but this one was the only place we felt like we were getting a special meal, not just an ordinary bento box (which you'll find at most vegan restaurants). The flavor was amazing for every dish we had. The atmosphere is also beautiful. And the waiters speak English pretty well/they have an English menu. I'd highly recommend coming here! But, if you're used to English sized portions, just know that everything is going to be small no matter where you go. I recommend getting an appetizer, soup or salad, and a main. It's actually better this way because you get to try more food without leaving stuffed!

Pros: Delicious

Cons: None

Amazing staff and interior design but bland food - Edit

I gotta give credit to the staff for providing a nice culinary experience, but once I got to eating the food I was flabbergasted at how small the portions and bland it tasted. I am very used to doing cooking at home so these "European" dishes were very bland. They are in serious need for improving their dishes to stand out.

Pros: Nice Staff, Great Atmosphere and interior

Cons: Worst value for price

Stylish... but disappointing. - Edit

Great location and nice ambiance, but food was disappointing and maybe overpriced for its quality.

Surprisingly poor service - Could they not have found staffs who are more welcoming and knowledgeable in what they serve?

Pros: Location

Cons: Poor service, Poor food, expensive

not that great! - Edit

The place has a nice ambience and food comes plated with some thought. However the food comes in very small quantities and the taste is not that great. Their other cafe, Pure cafe, does much better when it comes to tasty food.
their cheese dessert tasted of metal and when I told them after a miniscule taste, they took it away but charged me full price despite the fact that i ordered another dessert to replace this one.

Pros: ambience

Cons: food
