Delicious! - Edit

Went there for lunch after walking part of philosophers path in Kyoto. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the food was amazing! We enjoyed our dinner here and they had a separate English menu and plenty of vegetarian/vegan options. Such a cozy place!!

Pros: vegetarian options, friendly staff, great food and good price

Really cozy restaurant with nice veg options - Edit

A small cozy restaurant with an living room kind of atmosphere. It took us some time to decide, but the staff was really nice in explaining to us all the different things on the menu.
I ordered the Mongopan "pizza" as well as the fried noodles. Very filling and yummy 😋
The price was also very reasonable!

Pros: Yummy but still cheap, very friendly staff, good v

Cons: You'll know by some ingredients that lay around at

Amazing find. Very vegan friendly! - Edit

A great little gem. This place offers a wide range of vegan fusion dishes, all customisable. Upon entry they owners asked if we were vegetarian or vegans, and they understood perfectly what vegan meant and offered to make any dish vegan.

I had the monpan and my friend had the vegan Buddha bowl. Both were delicious and very filling!

The restaurant is very unique and homely, the owners extremely friendly, and the food was amazing!! It felt like going to a beloved grandma’s for dinner. They offer and English menu and one of the owners speaks English, so it’s very tourist friendly.

A wide range of drinks are also available, and the price is very reasonable! All in all I highly recommend this place.

Pros: Cheap, Good portion size, Mostly vegetarian & vegan
