great buffet - Edit

We went to the buffet with only an hour to closing and there weren't many options left but the food was very good. We also had ice cream, I highly recommend the matcha ice cream!

Awesome Buffet! - Edit

We were planning a visit to Senso-ji so we stopped here first. What a great choice! Such a great buffet with a lot of choices (raw veggies, lettuces and cabbages, at least 5 main dishes, two rice choices, two soups). Friendly staff and a very nice space. I would highly recommend Kaemon.

*on the top floor of the building, use elevator accessible from outside to access.

Pros: All Vegan

Have the tofu! - Edit

All you can eat buffet with a range of different western and Japanese type foods. The flavoured fried tofu (3 types) was amazing, I could have eaten tons of it! So tasty! Not cheap but you could have as much as you wanted and it was all organic and very fresh, they refill the serving dishes frequently.

Pros: Not crowded

Really enjoyed it! - Edit

Went there on my own and then again with my Mum (vegan) and really enjoyed it. Enough range of food, you can have multiple plates and the staff were friendly. It was quite quiet both days I went (we were the only ones in there one night), yet the food was replenished quickly and was hot. Highly recommend! It cost 2100¥ each without tea.

So many great options! - Edit

Such a great little place! It was buffet style so more on the expensive side (since I don't eat very large meals) but everything was great and the staff was so friendly.

I needed to kill some time before my next stop and they were really nice about me just hanging out for a while, grazing on fried tofu, veggies, and really really tasty tea.

Lots of super healthy options if you, like me, felt kind of nutrient starved in Japan after several days.

Pros: Amazing flavor in the prepared dishes, Healthy veggies and grains, All-vegan staff

Cons: Pricy, but it's a buffet

a wonderful vegan haven - Edit

This restaurant provides absolute beautiful vegan cuisine and showcases amazing Japanese produce- it is a must for any foodie regardless of dietary choices. Food is served as a buffet with optional meal add ons and a drinks package that you can add on as well. There is a salad and fresh produce bar that is lovely- the roasted taro with sesame dressing is delicious. There is a rice bar with white, brown, and brown with bean rice. Free water. A tofu bar with a number of different tofu and bean curd dishes.

Good oriental vegan buffet at reasonable price - Edit

This is the best meal I had in my 11-day holidays in Tokyo and the surrounding area. It is a buffet lunch including main dish soup salad at very reasonable price of 1600 nett Yen. The food is very good and suitable for all types of veganism as it is organic and oriental vegan (without the 5 pungent roots). It is also a certified halal restaurant.

Highly recommended when you are in Tokyo. It is just next to Asakusa 淺草subway station. Closed on Tuesday

Great food - Edit

Food is great and they have free flow of salad, soup, and some really great tasting beverages like detox tea and soy milk tea. I don't know what some people are complaining about having to pay more than 1000 yen for a meal. Food is not cheap in Japan to begin with! I'm thankful for vegan place as it is!

Pros: Free flow of really great tasting beverages!! And

Expensive - Edit

So the food was expensive and not too exciting. Overall I liked the food (especially the buffet), but it wasn't anything special to be paying a high price.

Pros: Buffet

Cons: Expensive

How did they get such good ratings..?? - Edit

Came here on a weekday afternoon before walking around Asakusa. My partner and I had seen the pictures of the food from their own page and looked very much forward to coming here to try. However, it's hard to describe how disappointing it was here.

We paid 1500en each for a lunch set which included an all you can eat buffet and a one time soup, which I felt was a fair value when coming in. I ordered the soy meat sandwich, and my partner had the rice and vegetables dish. The food was ok, very plain in taste and not exciting at all. The best thing was how tender their soy meat was. But the buffet was the really sad part. They had, lettuce, cabbage, shredded carrot, a tiny bit of potato salad left, and a couple of salad dressings to choose from. After the potato salad finished, a new one wasn't ready to take its place, even though there were so many staff working there (I think around 6?). The staff didn't seem so happy to be there either.

I unfortunately felt like I wasted money going there, for that money I could have had a much nicer meal at Sasaya Cafe for a 15-20 min walk which I regretted afterwards. Do not recommend. Based on my experience, I'm going to guess they are facing financial troubles as the food we saw on the pictures was nothing like what we received.

Pros: Good soy meat

Cons: Overpriced, bad value.

salty produce aisle - Edit

If munching on raw veggies and salt is your idea of a good 2000 yen meal then come here. I was pretty disappointed though. Salad bar was unlimited but mediocre. Soup was one time and I was glad, as it was the saltiest oversalted miso soup I've ever had and I LOVE salty food. My meal was soy meat with eggplant. The guy brings out a plate of straight up raw vegetables, rice, and a little mound of stewed eggplant. I try it - bland and sort of salty. I wait for 10 minutes, assuming the soy meat is on the way. Finally I ask the guy and he goes it's in the eggplant, right? I poke through the untouched eggplant and just look at him, upon which he runs off and returns with the most measly bowl of sad little soy chunks I've ever seen. It's stewed, and sort of salty. Combined, the two taste like a slightly higher quality canned veg meal. Not bad.. Definitely not great. Chocolate cake was sort of like a 7/11 brownie, maybe a bit less dry. At least it wasn't salty.
Next time I'll hit up the produce aisle of a supermarket for a meal like this. Pretty sure it'll be half the price

Pros: good wifi, good coffee, nice place

Cons: the price, the food

buffet delight - Edit

i almost balked and walked out when i saw that it was 2000 yen. but the buffet was really delicious. i hit that salad bar like a ginger stepchild. the sesame dressing was delicious. they serve you a plate of food, then you can have your way with the salads, and then dessert. i had the chocolate cake; should've gone for the sesame ice cream. all vegan. all delicious. really friendly, considerate staff who speak a very decent amount of english. good wifi, too.

Pros: Tasty, Big meal, Service

Cons: Pricey

Good food - Edit

This is a nice place that is both open for lunch and dinner. Unfortunately when we came the first time for dinner they were shut, so we came back for lunch another day. They have several nice options for lunch, though my coeliac partner was limited to one option. This option also contained soy sauce in the ingredients, so coeliacs beware to double check! However, they changed the offending sauce and made a new dressing for the gluten-free pasta from scratch which was great. The salad is buffet, which was actually nice to select your own preferences.
The staff wasn't maybe the superest smiliest when we came (they had just opened) but they were very helpful and accommodating.

Pros: organic, gluten-free option(s)

Cons: gluten-free wasn't truly GF but adjusted afterward
