An exciting find

Never knew about this place until we found it on Happy Cow last week and gave it a try. There were several vegan options although they are not marked any differently on menu to vegetarian ones. The owner/manager was very knowledgeable and even stopped us from ordering more food (yes, I wanted to try almost every vegan dish available and he recommended saving some for next time). The portions were generous and the food was done in a Japanese style. I enjoyed some of the things more as leftovers the next day when the flavors had settled in.
Update 2022/3: vegan options greatly reduced due to costs, to avoid wastage, etc.

Order from here a few times a month and the food is always fantastic. We are lucky to have such a great takeaway in Sturminster Newton. LOVE the gyoza and the teriyaki tofu.
