A NishiOgi Gem - Edit

Komenoko serves vegan Japanese food done very well. The teishoku sets at lunch time are great value for money, as with your main you get rice, miso soup, pickles and another side dish. Everything is simple, delicious, and healthy. Definitely recommended if you are in the area!

Amazing, tasty, healthy Japanese food in one of our favourite neighbourhoods - Edit

I’d been meaning to visit Komenoko for over a year (we live a few neighbourhoods away) and tonight we finally went! I’d heard amazing things about their gyoza so I had to get the Gyoza Set. My husband got the Karaage set.

Both the gyoza and Karaage were the best vegan versions we’ve tasted! The chef is brilliant and clearly has a lot of experience – he even shared with us the soaking method he uses to make the Karaage so tasty.

Really great value for money – you get mixed rice, lots of sides, a very heart miso soup, salad and your main for only around ¥1300 at dinner time. Also the drinks are very reasonably priced and delicious.

We love NishiOgi and will definitely be heading back to Komenoko!

Pros: all vegan, traditional Japanese food, English menu

Excellent authentic vegan food - Edit

After discovering this all vegan restaurant on Happy Cow, we decided to go on an adventure to find it. Please note that the restaurant has very little English signage out the front which can make it daunting to walk inside and the staff do not speak much English but once you make your way inside and find a table, the menu can be read in English (bonus!!).
We had the set lunch menu (1100¥), one was the dumplings and the other a fried mock meat, both were served with miso, rice and 2 side dishes (chosen by the staff). Both meals were excellent and a good size, even for Westerners. We shared a beer and plum wine and altogether the experience was 10/10. Highly recommend this little treasure!

Great Local Option - Edit

if you're in the area, it's a must try. We're about a 10min walk away and enjoy strolling down for a hearty lunch or dinner. Pleasant staff and can speak some English plus they've recently created an English-version menu.

Not sure it was worth the effort... - Edit

I came to the location of this place and couldn't find it, so went into a restaurant to ask and it turned out that I had entered the right place. There is no English signage and no English menu, but the person in charge was very helpful at explaining the place was vegan and describing menu items. I ordered a meal set with 'vegetable steak' as the main, with the standard brown rice and miso soup. I chose to have four side dishes (the maximum). When the meal arrived, I was a bit disappointed to find the 'vegetable steak' just meant pieces of stir fried vegetable with only the side dishes to add any flavour. My companion had ordered the soy meat main dish and shared a couple of pieces with me and this was nicer. I may simply have made a bad choice from the menu, but it was disappointing. For dessert we ordered the chocolate ice cream, which turned out to be a tiny amount in the bottom of a glass with a few nuts. Delicious but not really enough for me. I have to say that the effort in finding this place was for me not matched by the result.

Cons: Unexciting main dish, Tiny dessert

Fantastic traditional Japanese cuisine - Edit

I've been here for dinner and I loved it! Unexpectedly the food is very tasty and savory. You can order single items or a set menu.
When you order the set menu you have to choose the main dish, the number of side dishes (from 2 to 4) and the quantity of brown rice (small, medium large.) The set also includes miso soup and pickled vegetables. As an option you can add a drink set and a dessert set.
I ordered a set menu with gyoza, 4 side dishes and medium rice. The medium rice was a little bit small, but the gyoza was delicious. All the side dishes were very good as well.
If you like real Washoku (Japanese traditional cuisine) this is definitely a must try.
As a side note: they have fireflies in the restaurant, if you go for dinner you have the chance to see them.

Pros: Real washoku (Japanese cuisine), Very tasty , There are fireflies!

Cons: Quantities are a bit small
