Great range of options - Edit

Eventually chose the tomato and spinach curry as I was short on time. Tasted great and was a decent sized portion. Will go back again to try out the other options! Staff were friendly and the decor was great!

Healthy vegetarian food near Shinsaibashi Osaka - Edit

Again, vegetarian food is hard to find in Osaka esp those with onion, no garlic.

The set deal is worth the price but we did not order because has onion garlic.

We ordered pasta & curry rice which was ok.

Pros: Nice staff (boss) that speaks English

Cons: If more set deal without onion/garlic would be gre, Location need portable Wifi to locate

Simply perfect - Edit

I'm sitting there right now and it is just awesome. English speaking, really welcoming staff and great vegan/vegetarian food for a reasonable price. The owner came to talk to me and gave me great tips for vegetarian restaurants in Osaka and even invited me for coffee. After I paid, he gave me some rice cookies to take away. One of the best experiences in Osaka so far!

Hearty food, sells homemade cookies - Edit

The food portions her are good. I enjoyed the set lunch plate, it had a variety of items that were all nice and it was reasonably priced. Like others have said, nothing here is outstanding but it is a good place to eat for unfussy, quick, hearty food. The owner speaks good English and is very friendly!

They sell takeaway cookies at the counter, and these were quite nice and great to buy to eat while walking around Osaka as a break from convenience store rice!! I would recommend the tofu pumpkin muffin thing, or the chai cookie.

Pros: Good portions, Homemade, takeaway cookies

Good vegetarian restaurant - Edit

This is a good vegetarian restaurant with a lot of vegan choices. The food is freshly prepared and the portion sizes are good but it's average in terms of the food taste, ie, there is nothing particularly outstanding on the menu.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good value

Cons: Nothing outstanding, Nearly all the dishes contain gluten

Good value, quick service, tasty - Edit

I had the "Lunch of the day", and ordered a soy burger to go for later, came to 1450¥ in total. The food came within 10 minutes, tasted fresh and good. The waiter speaks great English, and was as helpful as you could expect, no smiles, but fast and efficient.

Pros: Good variety, Fast, Fresh

Green Earth, Osaka - Edit

1stly to clear up some confusion. This establishment is defo not 100% vegan. The blurb on the menu inside cover clearly states they offer lacto milk and lacto cheese. I asked the server who confirmed that info to be correct.

This was great food and the best value for money I've encountered so far in my admittedly short stay in Japan. The set deal was great value and great taste at 700 yen. My spouse ordered a salad that was similarly delicious.

This place would defo be a 5 rating from me if it were 100% vegan.

Pros: Vegan friendly, Good value, Great tasting food

Cons: Shame about the lacto milk and lacto cheese

Go, just go, it's 100% worth it! - Edit

This quaint little restaurant is by far my favourite in Osaka. It has a warm ambiance amongst other diners. The owner speaks great English and is super friendly. Their menu has ample options.

Highly recommend the garden salad & pizza.

Pros: Menu is great!, Pizza is everything, Worth a second visit

Cons: Dessert cake a little dry , Tofu Quiche doesn't come with salad like in the pi

Green Earth is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Japan - Edit

Green Earth is one of my favorite restaurants in Japan (on my top 3). The owners are kind, spontaneous Osaka-jin, and their food is both very tasty and cheap. There's a nice little seating area outside too. And it's near Shinsaibashi

Pros: Friendly, open and welcoming owners, Very tasty food, Cheap

Amazing experience! - Edit

Had a great experience here. We stopped by for lunch and there is many traditional japanese options as well as western style options too. I had the lunch of the day and it was incredible! large portions, very reasonably priced and the service was great. Highly recommend this place!

what a great lunch spot! - Edit

Lovely little vegetarian restaurant within easy walk of the British Consulate. The set lunch is amazing value, tasted great and was beautifully presented. Huge portion size too! Unsurprisingly with such great attention to detail the service was fabulous too. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Pros: vegan options a plenty , they sell vegan ice cream , there is a vegan bakery

A must-visit - Edit

I've been here 3 times: Once as a tourist two years back, and twice since moving here.

Green Earth is a very sweet restaurant. The owner and his wife are wonderful people; his English is excellent. It's quaint but proud.

They specialize in lunch sets. For an unbeatable price, you get a good meal that changes day to day. Easily one of the best deals in Osaka veg dining! I had burritos today; the other day it was corn cakes - always with soup, salad and a small side.

And if you're still hungry or want something else, the rest of the menu is robust and won't let you down. Then there are baked goodies.

Track the hours; it's usually just lunchtime, though they have a Friday-night dinner (which I want to try). If they're open and you're near and/or hungry, go to Green Earth!

Pros: Awesome value , Great owners that provide excellent service, Quality/quantity of food

Cons: Only open a small portion of the day, Aesthetic too plain for image-conscious diner

Timing is bit off but the food's good! - Edit

Went there with 2 Japanese friends and we ordered 2 daily specials and 1 curry. The daily specials came really quickly but we were nearly halfway our meals when the curry came... My friend enjoyed the curry though so it ended up alright :) But if timing bothers you maybe you could explicitly ask for everything to be brought together?

I had the daily special which was lasagne mmm. Ordered a large portion of rice because I was hungry. Felt full afterwards so no complaints there!

Also has a small shop with dried soy meat and tasty vegan muffins.

Revisited last week. My friend had the apple pie but it didn't look appetising and it didn't taste any good either - dry and hardly any filling. I had the soy milk sauce and ham spaghetti which was OK but nothing special.

The waiter was unfriendly both times I went. The first time I thought hey everyone has a bad day every once in a while but if it happens twice I'll write about it. They hardly looked up when we came in. The waiter was in a hurry even though there weren't many customers. He was also distracted so we had to repeat our order twice. He didn't seem to care and didn't bother to give water refills. Same attitude both times.

Updated from previous review on Sunday January 10, 2016

Pros: good portions, daily specials are served quickly

Cons: some menu items are slow, unfriendly owner, apple pie is no good
