Good food - Edit

The food was very good but there wasn’t much choice, we had about 2 or 3 options. Luckily all of the options were decent enough and I payed around 1200¥ for my meal.

Great! - Edit

Had a green curry with sticky rice, very nice. The people are also very friendly. The waiter told us that it was possible to make the vegetarian dishes vegan on request.

Tasty Thai but not much variety. - Edit

My partner (vegetarian) and I (vegan) decided to go here for dinner as it was close to where we'd spent the day and I was craving Thai. Its pretty easy to find and the directions provided by Google are accurate. Its also in a very nice area of town, so walking there at night felt safe.

When we arrived we were basically told to go away, so there was a moment of panic where we thought we'd have to eat elsewhere or reservations were required or something. We waited a bit, some people left, and we tried again - this time we got a table. Besides the initial incident, the waitresses were lovely and at least one of them understood what vegan meant and was able to advise appropriately and confidently.

Unfortunately, the menu for non-meat eaters is tiny. It has been changed since the image of the menu was taken and I didn't remember to take a photo of the new one. There are five options and at least two of them are vegan, excluding plain rice. Both my partner and I had stir fried tofu with holy basil and we split some summer rolls, both of which were delicious. The portions were more generous that I expected and very reasonably priced for what we ordered. There is also a decent selection of alcohol and cocktails, though I found myself disappointed in the wine choices.

I'd recommend going here if you have a party with lots of people who eat meat and don't mind restrictions. The food is lovely and well-priced, but there was less choice than I expected.

Pros: Nice decor, Staff understood veganism

Cons: Little variety in veg/vegan options

good thaï cuisine - Edit

As usual in Japan and it's always a pleasure, very warm and friendly welcome.
Food was good for both veg and non veg.
It would be nice to have a wider selection of veg dishes.
Bottom line: was good enough for me and my son!

Worth a try Thai - Edit

I'm a fan of Thai food. It's one of those types that both veg and meat eaters can enjoy. After a couple hiccups, my meal was really good, and one of the best values in veg food I've found in Osaka.
So, make sure to ask for the vegetarian menu straight away because it's not on the menu waiting at the table. The veg menu is by no means extensive, though you should find something to your liking. I saw a vegetarian dinner set on the back of the menu, but it's for 2 people only? Not sure if that's two for double the price, or two total for the listed price. Anyway, I tried to order it, was later shot down, and then was able to order some lunch set instead (consolation? regular thing at 8pm? YMMV).
The meal was massive: noodle salad, a spring roll, soup, green curry, side of rice, sweet & spicy tofu dish, tapioca dessert. A little heavy on the flavors (salt, sweetness), but I cleaned every plate. With a pineapple juice, it came to a hair over 2100 yen! Wow!

Pros: Great value, Protein without being heavily processed, You can bring your meat-eating friends

Cons: Had to dig a little to get what I wanted, Not the easiest place to find, Small selection of veg options

Overpriced - Edit

The food was okay and you get a vegetarian menu if you ask for it, but portions are small and expensive compared to all other places we've been to. :/

Delicious food lots of options - Edit

Ask for the vegetarian menu and they will bring it. They were also willing to adjust things to be vegan for me when I asked. The lunch special is delicious and sooo much food! Everything was so good and I left happy and full.

Pros: Vegan/vegetarian options, Friendly staff, Good food

Good Thai Food - Edit

The food was very good.
you need to ask for the vegetarian menu, because the normal menu does not contain the veggie dishes.
the staff only spoke little english, but it was no problem to order.
the Thai curry is served without rice, so you need to order rice as well.
price for two persons with drinks was about 4700

Pros: very good thai curry

Cons: expensive
