AMAZING mock meat - Edit

I had a bento with gyoza and mock meat with one of the vegan sushis. I was very happy with the food overall. It’s a bit pricey but it’s the best mock meat I’ve ever tasted in my life.

great spicy ramen and unagi rolls! great service too! no MSG. - Edit

A nice cozy Jap-vegetarian resto in Fortune center. Went here 2x before. We were pleased with the taste of the spicy ramen. The "meat" slices really tasted like meat you would hardly believe it isnt one. The dumplings that came with the ramen were superb too. We also liked the sesame soup base on our second visit. The unagi sushi was a winner... tasted like real ones. We also ordered and tried the asparagus wrap thinking it was plant-based cheese but it was real cheese. We were warned it could get salty but we didnt heed it. Nice ambiance, great staff service especially the Filipina lady named Belle. She really assisted us and gave tips which ones are nice to order. Overall, price was ok for the serving I guess as hubby and I shared every dish. Definitely a 2 thumbs up recommendation. It's for both vegetarians and nonV peeps. A place ud look fward comin back to.

Pros: can ask staff to make vegan cozy, big servings. he

Cons: not too many vegan options

the BEST avocado rolls - Edit

Honestly some of the best vegan sushi I’ve ever had. Love that although it’s a vegetarian restaurant, all the vegan options are all clearly labelled. The gyoza were a bit too crispy for my liking, but the sesame noodle soup was very good, as was the vegan teriyaki ‘chicken’. The star of the show though, was the vegan sushi - the avocado sushi to be more specific. Absolutely perfect. Would go back again just for this.

Pros: vegan options labelled , self order via electronic tablet, amazing vegan sushi

Perfect - Edit

Omg! A vegan sushi place, heaven is a place on Earth. True, not all is vegan and most sushi restaurants are able to produce vegan sushi on request... but never before I saw vegan unagi or such creativity with vegan sushi combinations. I thought that since I turned vegan I'd never taste anything like that again, but here I did. Loved the food here.

It is very expensive. But then again, most things in Singapore are. One weird thing: There's no bathroom in the restaurant?? You have to go out in the shopping mall to find one.

Incredible Vegan-Friendly Japanese Cuisine - Edit

Came down with my loved one and it was one of the best meals I've had at a vegan-friendly vegetarian restaurant. We had the Katsu Curry Udon (curry gravy was a wee bit salty), Katsu Curry Bento Set and the Unagi Rolls, all of which were really flavourful. When ordering, remember to indicate "VEGAN" in the remarks for the dishes that have a vegan option. I highly recommend this place.

Pros: Easy to order meals off the tablet, fast and efficient service, Muslim-friendly (no alcohol in the food)

Cons: Slightly pricey (but worth every penny!).

Delish! - Edit

A nice selection on the menu. The plant based TVP was cooked beautifully. I had a curry soup and my husband had a huge bento box. There were some odd things in the box, but all tasty. We also ordered gyoza which were yummy. A bit expensive, but typical for Singapore.

big portions - Edit

We had fish Katsu Curry and pork Ramen :) it seems like Herbivore has now started labelling some of their dishes Vegan, even the curry and sushi can be made without dairy and eggs. Taste wise, the Ramen reminds us of wanton noodles even though it's not the same kind of noodles. Very salty, probably 'cause of the added seaweed. Curry taste more like Indian curry rather than the usual sweet Japanese curry, but nonetheless tasted amazing. The gyoza didn't 'wow' me

Excellent sushi - Edit

Delicious sushi and bento boxes. A bit pricey but so worth the money!

Located in a small mall full of vegetarian and vegan shops and restaurants.

Tastes better than the real thing! - Edit

I became vegan over a year ago & haven't had teriyaki chicken since. It was exciting to see it on their menu and even more exciting that it tasted even better than I expected! Definitely want to try the fish next.

Amazing - Edit

The staff was very friendly and helpful with identifying what is vegan. The restaurant itself was nice and clean. I would say it is one of the best restaurants in Singapore I have tried. We had sushi, vegetable tempura and gyoza (make sure to mention that you want sushi it vegan as it comes with mayonnaise). Vegan options are marked.

Pros: friendly staff, delicious food, modern and clean

Cons: a bit expensive

fantastic Resturant - Edit

Read many review, the restaurant was near my hotel, very hot today and entering the cool air conditional establishment was a great comfortable welcome. The staff know about Vegan food and the menu has Vegan labels now so this makes choosing the food easier, I enjoy what was recommended to me.

Upscale Japanese restaurant with great food - Edit

Good selection of sushi as well as set meals, staff are helpful with identifying what is vegan.
I tried the vegan unagi which looked extremely realistic. The texture was a little weird but the flavour was good.

Slightly more upscale veggie Japanese - Edit

More upscale decor and seating than the other dining spots in this shopping center. Staff attentive and knowledgeable about vegan items on menu, which has multiple bento set, sushi, and noodle options. Unfortunately, I was told that the veggie sashimi - which I was looking forward to trying - is not vegan as it contains milk ingredients. I had the spicy ramen soup instead, and it was excellent. Prices are definitely higher than the other eateries in this center, but worth it. Recommended!

Fantastic - Edit

It's always full of happy eaters. Their avocado maki and teriyaki tofu bento are killers. Soo good. Tell them to make it vegan and they know exactly what to alter. Excellent staffs too.

Pros: Super yummy

Cons: several fake meat dishes

Best veg Japanese restaurant - Edit

First of all i hv to agree that food is expensive. However despite that, I will highly recommend vegetarians esp tourist not to give this a miss. This is located in bugis. One of the touristy area. Easy walk from bugis mrt and you can ask around easily how to get to fortune center. The food is creative and the taste is uniquely interesting and magical. Try out their unagi dishes including sushi, their avocado sushi is a hit too. If you just want a simple lunch without burning a big hole in your pocket, u can try out their sesame based soup ramen. Very nice! Despite spending close to $60- $80 every visit with my family of 3 or 4, we felt extremely satisfied. Will def revisit when the cravings are back!

Great for vegetarians. Trickier for vegans. - Edit

When a restaurant makes a longtime vegan stop and ask if the sashimi really is veg-based, that's how you know it's a well-done meal. I'm used to analogue meats that are very good, but this was my first go with vegetarian sashimi and it was freakishly good. The texture and taste was spot-on, which admittedly was a bit disturbing, but it was tasty. Servings were large, and you order from a tablet attached to the table, which is nice for seeing photos of what you're going to order, but I would have liked to see some descriptions or ability to comment with special requests.

I'm taking away a star because the service wasn't very attentive, and I really wish they labeled the differences between vegetarian or vegan to make it easier for the vegans to order. They have the tablet ordering system, so it would be super convenient to simply have a special request option to "make it vegan" without having to grill the server for information. While they don't use eggs, they do use dairy, so you have to make sure to request no sauce/mayo, which is dairy-based.

helpful staff - Edit

a stylish restaurant in an area where there is so much competition.
fancy tablets to order food, which staff kindly helped with, and they were also really helpful with vegan options. literally any dish they have can be made vegan and they said it was not an issue.
I had a big noodle dish with some sides, my partner in crime had a big bento box and my wee one had a satay and corn on the cob.
it was a but pricier than most ot it's competitors but the portions were huge. we did end up with a couple of things we weren't keen on, but that's often the issue with bento's, it's almost impossible to like every dish.
overall a great restaurant, a little oily, buy really good quality.

Pros: vegan options, staff, location

Worth a visit - Edit

We went here for dinner one evening and liked it so much we came back a few days later. The food was excellent, service was good and prices were reasonable. We were seated near a window, and a woman passing by saw me struggling with my chopsticks. She came into the restaurant and tried to show me how to use them. Then she started talking about her ex-boyfriend's mother and other personal things, and we couldn't get rid of her! She finally left, and I finished my meal using a fork.

Pros: Very good food, Good service, Reasonable prices

Cons: None

Favourite Singapore restaurant - Edit

This was the best restaurant we tried in our brief stopover in Singapore in March this year. The food was absolutely heavenly.

Not everything on the menu was vegan, but the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful about what was in everything so we could feel confident.

I can't remember everything we had - see photos above. Some wonderful braised veggies, seitan skewers, a bento set and desserts.

It's not a low budget place, but prices are at par with what we are used to paying at home for this kind of high quality and beautiful setting.

I will definitely be returning to Singapore again in the future to eat here and the other range of great vegan and vegetarian restaurants.

Vegans Don't Have to Give Up Sushi! - Edit

Herbivore offers fantastic vegetarian Japanese food.

The staff are very friendly and remember customers who visit multiple times and any specific food requests they have. (I.e. no mayonnaise, vegan, etc)

They have an expansive menu which is bound to have something for everyone. The avocado, "eel" and "salmon" sushi are our favorites as well as the roasted eggplant appetizer.

We've taken carnivores here who loved it too. Herbivore is a terrific example of vegetarian Japanese and proof that you don't have to give up good tasting food to eat with compassion!

Pros: Friendly staff, Outdoor seating, Sushi!!!

Please remove this restaurant in the vegetarian part".
It's very very expensive (the most of all I tried)and the food is not good. Prefer to go in Tracy Juice in the same mall for noodles and shake.

Herbivore - top Japanese vegan stall - Edit

We went there on Father's Day, being more expensive than its cousin Zen restaurant next door, which was closed due to building renovation. The bento set is $21 but full of goodies.. What to say ?? Everything is nice there ! The food taste good, the cooking smelled good in the dining room. We ordered vegan versions of noodles, tempura, tofu and kongbu (sp) a lovely green seaweed. Expensive but excellent... for three people easily top $80.

Pros: wok-energy, vegan mostly, great taste

Cons: expensive

Lured to Herbivore ... - Edit

Live to eat... Eat to live. Great tasting Vegetarian Japanese Cuisine at Herbivore. Herbivoure is a Japanese Western Vegetarian Restaurant located in the one of Vegetarian Food Havens - Bugis. Although it serves Western Vegetarian dishes, we decided to go for Japanese Vegetarian Food, the reason was that it looks appetizing and authentic Vegetarian Japanese Food is not so common in the vegetarian food scene.
Was glad that the dishes were not only well presented but also tastes good too and we have a satisfactory meal. A meatless lover does not have to forgo great tasting food! How wonderful.

Excellent but might not suit those on the budget - Edit

Japanese style food, a bento at around SGD 22. All food we ordered were well done, taste really good and well presented. We (4 adults, a child and a baby in pram) went there for dinner on Saturday night and we had to leave almost right after the meal as there were people q up for a table. Excellent place to eat, but surely not to hang up during peak time. The space between one table to another is not generous as the restaurant is not very big. They have high chair for children and breastfeeding in the restaurant is accepted (i asked and the waiter said no issue).

Pros: Food

Cons: Price
