Loved it

Got takeout - a vegan set meal. Things were labelled vegan. I really loved that I couldn’t identify many of the foods in this meal, but enjoyed everything. Very light in taste and very healthy

Walked in around 4:30pm, no reservation required for that time as there wasn’t many people in there. Got one of the meals with the soy fried bites. The meal came with a small salad, miso soup, rice, 2 types of soy fried bites and some sauce. Was super yummy, my partner who is a non-vegan really enjoyed the soy fried bites as well and tried to steal them off me.
Super friendly service as well, didn’t get an english menu so not sure if they have one available. Paid by card at the end.

Pros: Tasty, Super Friendly

Cons: Didn’t receive English menu

5 stars 🌟

I had the veggie hamburger curry, and it was extremely delicious. I still think about that great meal 😌💭💘
I went on a weekday during lunch, and no reservation was required.

Great food!

I recently had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant, and I have to say, the food was absolutely delicious. While the decor was a bit plain, the food more than made up for it.

They have vegan omu rice!

Great restaurant. We (2people) were there at ~18:30 and we got a seat without reservation. The omu rice menu was delicious (and a lot!). The dessert (black sesame muffin) wasn’t my favourite.

Pros: Several vegan options, Good food

Cons: No English menu, but photos were helpful

Set meals, curry and coffee

Enjoyed the set meal of the day which was “meatballs” in black vinegar sauce, accompanied by a small pickle salads, miso and rice. Plenty of vegetables, a nice light meal. Japanese curry comes with small portion of vegetables a few choices of toppings. My partner ordered the one with wheat gluten and fried soy, they ran out of the wheat gluten so was only given 3 small pieces of fried soy, a substitute would have been appreciated for the price. They served beer which is great along with soy milk hot chocolate (pretty tasty) and coffees. By closing time there was just one vegan muffin left which had a good texture but I personally needed little more flavour. The atmosphere is casual, the server was friendly and spoke good English. We did make a reservation beforehand but this wasn’t checked so it is possible to just walk in if it’s not full (1-2 tables left on a Sunday evening)

Pros: Healthy set meal, lots of veggies, Close to Umeda station area, Friendly service

Cons: Quite pricey for what you get , No substitute for missing ingredient given

Loved it!

They have a lot of vegan options, including desserts. The english menu is shortened and has just 5 items, but the japanese menu has several pages. Staff knows english tho so they will help and recommend what to pick. New item on menu is vegan rice omelette, very good. No reservation needed.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Friendly staff, Delicious food

Cons: English menu not whole

Good vegan options.

Very cozy place with a vegan menu. The soy-patty hamburger steak was soft and tasty. The curry was mildly spicy and tasty. Love the rice, glad that I ordered extra rice for both meals. Finished the curry with all the rice. So perfect!
Cakes and muffins have vegan choices too.

Pros: Good portion, vegan menu

Very enjoyable osechi cuisine

My family and I decided to order vegan Osechi ryori from this place this year to celebrate the special occasion. An assortment of colorful osechi dishes were fresh and simply delicious. We’d love to order their osechi ryori again next year.

Delicious Japanese vegan food

Much of the menu was vegan and clearly labeled. Some items were not vegan but the place is clearly catering to vegans primarily. Coffee shop, cool atmosphere, live music.

Pros: Full vegan menu, Faux meats

Cute, cosy and healthy

This was a great little place for lunch. Unfortunately it does serve meat but there are many options which are vegan or can be veganised. Vegan friendly dishes are clearly marked with a green V leaf mark. I had the curry rice, and my boyfriend had the soymeat karage teishoku. Both meals were delicious and portion sizes were very generous.
The atmosphere was cute and bright but cosy. It also looked like they sometimes have live music too.
Apparently they also recently started doing delivery via ubereats.

Pros: Delicious, healthy and filling., Lots of vegan options

Cons: Serves meat, A little bit pricy

I had the soft tofu kimchi stew (vegan version), a vegan lassi and a charcoal chocolate muffin.
I really enjoyed everything. The food was absolutely delicious.
I payed around 1.900yen for the whole meal, which I think is a fair price.

Pros: Vegan options clearly labeled, Delicious, Fair price

Nice Energy & Food

I came here for dinner with a friend and we both had the vegan korokke set with no extra salad bar option (you can choose one extra salad dish, or access to the entire salad bar buffet for about 700 yen +). They are reservation-only, but I called ahead only 30 mins before we wanted to come and they were able to accommodate us easily. The staff were friendly and attentive. We also had a vegan charcoal muffin for dessert and I was really impressed with it. The decor inside is a little kitschy but it's also pleasant and there were no aspects to complain about really. I'd recommend it for a calm and nourishing meal :)
