Local eatery - Edit

This is a place where plenty of locals come for lunch. The vegetables plate is pretty good and simple. The taste is subtle and not overwhelming and at the same time it’s pretty satisfying. I wish I could cook like this.

DIRECTION: same building as LIMA but on the side of the building almost behind. Look for the 7Eleven and Kuroneko Yamato sign and enter through there.

Pros: Cheap, Satisfying , Local

Good Japanese Lunch Place - Edit

The food here was tasty. If you’re interested in trying veg-friendly local cuisine, this is a great place for lunch. I couldn’t identify everything on my plate, but knowing it was all vegetarian, I could enjoy the new flavors and textures without worry.

From an American perspective, the serving size was a bit small. The set wasn't enough to fully satisfy my hunger and I had to supplement the meal with a sandwich from another location; however, it was a comparable amount of food to the other places I've eaten in Tokyo so far.

The atmosphere is cozy and pleasant. The price is about the lowest I’ve seen for vegetarian lunch sets in Tokyo. For 900JPY I got six different little dishes plus rice and soup. Our waitress didn’t speak much English, but she spoke just enough to communicate with us about our order.

Pros: Good food, Good price, Friendly staff & nice atmosphere

Cons: Not a lot of food by American standards

Nice lunch spot - Edit

We found the place thanks to the helpful happy cow comments. It's a small and cozy place that looks a bit outdated. Service was quick and friendly.
They had a piece of paper which states the ingredients used that day and everything was vegan. We liked our food but it was very Japanese with flavours and textures not everyone might like. It's definitely an authentic experience and very affordable (~1000 yen for a big lunch plate).

Pros: vegan lunch, cheap , friendly

the best Japanese food you can get near yoyogi - Edit

I've been a vegan for a while here in Japan but I think his restaurant is by far one of the most delicious vegan Japanese you can get in Tokyo.
Everything is vegan friendly but sometimes the meals are not vegan so please request it to be vegan.

It comes with rice and miso soup accompanied by many small dishes that changes everyday, it hits your taste pallet in many ways making you enjoy the simple yet such a delicious taste of vegetables and simple seasoning.
Highly recommended

Pros: cheap, delicious

Cons: only lunch time. , not open on weekends

Fantastic food for a great price! - Edit

A bit hard to find, but it's in the same building as Lima café which is easy to spot. I had the 900 yen lunch menu, ordering was indeed easy (only choosing white or brown rice). Many many small dishes that made for a great lunch, tasty and filling. Easily worth the price, would definitely come here again!

Real and good - Edit

Came twice for the 900 yen lunch set. Friendly staff, the waitress speaks some English. No eggs used either day (the second time she told me before I'd even asked). You just need to tell her brown or white rice.

6 items, plus rice and miso. Plenty yet not super filling, had room for dessert at Lima after.

To find it: exiting Lima Cafe past the pick-up counter, turn left into a building hallway. Walk for maybe 23 seconds and it's on the right, no English sign.

Great authentic experience - Edit

This cafe is small, a bit dark and hard to find, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the best lunches I have had in Tokyo. There is no menu, the meal of the day is written on the wall (in Japanese). When you enter you can sit wherever you'd like, the staff ask you if you want brown or white rice. Then tea and a lovely Japanese style lunch set with many small dishes including different kinds of vegetables, tofu, soup and of course rice will be served. According to another review here rice and soup refill is free so this is definitely good value for the money. The only negative thing I could think of is that apparently it's not always fully vegan so if you don't speak any Japanese it might be a bit risky. It was vegan the day I went though. I left fully satisfied and would definitely go again.

Pros: excellent food, good value

Fantastic Japanese vegan lunch - Edit

Milk Land was a great experience overall. The staff didn't seem to speak any English, but the only choice you need to make is white/brown rice. Friendly folk, delicious food, unlimited rice/soup/tea refills. And all for ¥900.
Note that Google maps from Shinjuku station will direct you to a street behind the building. Look at the building that the pin hits rather than the exact walking directions, and aim for the slightly bigger street where you'll find the front door.

Pros: Lots of delicious variety, no difficult menu to de

I love Milk Land!!!! - Edit

I've been lucky enough to be able to stop here a few times when passing through the city for work, and I think it was love from the moment I walked in.

The variety of the food is great and they use whatever is in season. Also, the dishes just keep coming! I could hardly believe my eyes the first time I went. I think you're guaranteed to leave here stuffed!

The shop is really cozy and the woman I've always seen there seems so quirky in a cool way (she either has pigtails with wild scrunchies and/or a rabbit tail pinned on the back of her shirt. I love it). It's the kind of place where I really wish I was a regular/local.

The day's dishes are listed on a small blackboard outside the shop, but it's Japanese only. To order, you just have to tell them if you want white or brown rice. It doesn't take long for the food to come out either, even at peak lunch time I've always had speedy service.

I do eat dairy, but I haven't tried any of their milk drinks/ice cream because the lunch set always fills me up. But I've seen some go by and they look tasty.

Highly recommended if you're around on a weekday!

Pros: big portions & very reasonably priced, nice atmosphere

Cons: location is tricky the first time, only open weekdays

fantastic set lunch - Edit

Hard to find. Near the hospital, look for an organic cafe at the front of the building and walk into the front door, keep walking all the way through the shops until you find the characters for the shop on the right side of the hallway.
Very small restaurant but delicious vegetarian food. No English spoken and no English menu. Just order the set lunch for about $10.

Pros: delicious , cheap

Cons: no English

Great place, where the locals are - Edit

Once you found out (use Google map or similar) in which building Milk Land is located, it is easy to find inside. It is Japanese only: there is no English menu, they speak minimal English, and all clients seems to be locals. They are either business people having lunch or people living nearby.

The food is tasty and healthy, the price reasonable cheap. I would go there the next time I am in Tokyo.

Pros: Cheap and teasty, vegetarian, in our case vegan, close to train station

Cons: no choice, only lunch

Awesome lunch place - Edit

My partner and I decided to come here for lunch before our flight back home because it is located right behind our hotel. This place is totally local (read: no English) and opens on weekdays for lunch only. As you can probably tell from the restaurant name, they actually boast milk from a local farm that is pasteurized with low temperature and serve/sell dairy ice cream and homemade yogurt, but I didn't try any of that. They also claim to use all pesticide-free vegetables.

Rather than the dairy products, the daily Japanese-style set lunch seemed to be their main focus. It changes every day. For JPY900 you get six small dishes of food, a bowl of white or brown rice and miso soup, both of which can be refilled for free upon request. There was a sign on the wall that said the food might contain a small amount of animal products, and that customers are asked to notify the staff when ordering for a vegan meal.

From what I could gather, everything was vegan on the date I went, but still I did as advised. I just couldn't pass up organic natto with black sesame for only JPY100 so I also ordered one. The whole meal was great! Food was tasty, service was prompt, and with that price it really couldn't get any better than that.

The location can be tricky but by no means challenging. The restaurant is inside a building complex. They have a standing sign out on the street by the building entrance. Just walk inside and you'll see it.

Pros: tasty, healthy food, reasonable prices
