Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan, 616-8384

Serves meat, vegan options available. Located in touristic shopping area of Arashiyama by the riverside at 京都市右京区嵯峨天竜寺造道町. Offers one vegan lunch set (seitan and gluten cutlets, tofu, salad, and rice). Tell them to switch fried chicken to gluten katsu, because you are a vegan/vegetarian -- show this to waitress: 私はベジタリアン(ビーガン)ですので、鳥の唐揚げをグルテンフライや大豆肉のミンチコロッケなどに変えて頂けますか?. Note: kitchen may stop serving 30-60 minutes prior to closing, check ahead.

First Review by kajsen

it’ll do - Edit

In mid-November, Arashiyama is overrun with tourists from all over Japan who come to see the beautiful autumn leaves. This also means it’s really hard to get a reservation at any of the great traditional veg restaurants in the area. This restaurant comes to the rescue. Given that they have a halal menu, you can get a veg set, but specify that you want veg. If you do not see the vegetarian set on this main menu, don’t to spare don’t despair. His item is on the seoerate menu. Now onto the food. Did I think it was great? May. It’s primarily fried food. There is some tofu in a nice sauce, but it’s not exceptional. the fried food is really really really crispy so if you have a sensitive mouth like me you might get some tiny cuts, however it really did come to the rescue today when I needed something to eat. You’ll most likely be able to find a space here, even in busy season. I waited about 15 minutes

Pros: convenient, free tea

Cons: fried af

Very nice vegan set menu! - Edit

The place was a little tricky to find but there is a sign that says Yoshiya Okunoniwa and then you go through the store and find it behind. Friendly staff with good english knowledge. The food was excellent but according to happy cow only one $ but I would say it was more expansive (1300 yen tax) but it was worth it! Very nice atmosphere and overall very happy with everything except that the tofu was a little bland.
