doesn’t deserve 2 stars - Edit

We got there more than an hour from closing, keeping in mind that some places doesn’t take any more orders after 9pm. The staff was rude & didn’t seem to want to let us in. They told us we’d only get to choose from a limited variety of dishes, which we were fine with.

Then we were going to order & they were very pushy with us making up our minds fast, like they just wanted us out of there. My friend got some extremely dry dish with potatoes, eggplant & mince, not sure but maybe an attempt on moussaka. I ordered bbq bowl & it wasn’t awful but it was basically just some salad leaves, rice & few chunks of soy meat.
On top of that I found a long, black hair straw in my food which sorta made me lose my appetite.

Anyways, maybe we just came at a bad time but we did not feel welcome at all & will gladly NOT visit again.

Fine but nothing special - Edit

Very friendly and welcoming people at this restaurant. We ordered a pizza, penne and fried 'chicken' with rice (we were hungry). The food was fine but not very special either. My companion at this diner says I'm being too harsh with 3 stars, but I've simply had much better vegan food during this trip. Still a very decent place if you're in that area.

Pros: perfect English speaking, you can order most options without garlic/onions, cheap

Number One in Osaka! - Edit

The fact that we went three times in one holiday to Green Earth is a testament to how good it is! The lunch of the day is the clear winner, although my husband also enjoyed the hotdog and the burger. The staff are welcoming and efficient, with excellent service. The food is wholesome, inventive and delicious, and the surroundings are calm and comfortable. Top pick for Osaka!

lifesaver! - Edit

Really easy to find using the HC nap and instantly recognisable once here. Friendly staff understand English enough to be able to have small conversations and to answer questions. I chose the day's set menu and it was a delicious and varied selection of hot and cold. They also serve and sell kombucha, so I got my probiotic kick, too! Very recommended. ☺️

Pros: many options, kombucha, lovely staff.

Cons: none

Great lunch stop - Edit

This place was an easy walk from the subway station and provided a quick, cheap and tasty lunch. We the soy meat wrap and the hot dog which filled my junk food cravings and came with potatoes and a little salad. The cakes were delish and we were so happy to finally find a vegan cheesecake. The best part of it all however was the owner who was the nicest guy ever! He was so friendly and asks us lots of questions, comparing being vegan in Japan and England.

Pros: Cheap, Homemade breads, The cakes!

Quick, cheap, good - Edit

Everything about this place is convenient. It's in a good location central to everything, the food is cheap, tasty and comes out very quickly. The man that served us spoke vgood English and was very efficient. The daily lunch was very large and is more than enough on its own. I didn't know this and ordered a hummus sandwich as well, which was also tasty and cheap but really stretched my appetite! As others have said, the food here isn't special, but it is perfect for those looking for a good feed without wasting any time.

Pros: Fast, Large serving sizes, Cheap

Spacious busy spot - Edit

This was one of the biggest spots I ate at in Japan (which doesn't mean much in Japan). Dispite the "vegan" in the description it is not fully vegan. The do offer cheese and milk but seems like mostly everything could be made vegan. I got a pasta dish that was very good but realized after I probably should have asked if it was vegan.

Pros: Well spoken english/english menu

Cons: Not exactly sure what's vegan vs veg

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

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

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
