First Review by JesseD

Repeater No.1! - Edit

Moved close to Osaka Expo '70 in October 2016, so information about the location in previous reviews is no longer valid! Now located about a ten minute walk from Unobe station.

Peaceful cafe that serves up to around 30 people. Been there many times and the food is always absolutely delicious. Kimchi ramen and soy meat skewers definitely recommended.

Shop sells cheap dried soy meat which tastes really good if soaked and marinated. Vegan cup ramen, vegan curry powder, home made ketchup (the only ketchup in the world I ever liked), veg kimchi etc. Lots of homemade vegan faux meat in the freezer. Occasionally no egg strawberry shortcake and no egg cream puffs (contains milk so it's not vegan).

About half of the menu is vegan, the other half contains milk (no meat fish or eggs are used at all). I advised them to clearly mark which items contain milk, and they edited their menu! Now it's clearly marked on the menu, which is also available online so you can check beforehand if you want to.

Updated from previous review on 2016-11-07

Pros: Excellent food, Lots of soy meat products in shop, Very friendly staff

Cons: Some menu items contain milk (clearly marked)

Soy skewers -WOW - Edit

A beautiful restaurant with many vegan/vegetarian options. I got the sesame ramen (pretty good) but what stole the show was the soy skewers. Literally one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. 3x better than chicken skewers no lie. Just a note though, the prices are a bit steep. Also, if coming from Minami senri station like I did I recommend just walking 25 minutes. Tried to take the bus and got lost/stuck at the station for an hour...

Amazing mock tofu dishes. - Edit

I went to ORIBIO by bike - got lost a time or two, but it was definitely worth the effort. My boyfriend, who eats meat, said that the dishes tasted a great deal better than their original non-vegan versions and we just couldn't get enough. The atmosphere is also very interesting and cosy. The shop they run at the front is also very handy for vegans, if just a little bit pricey.

Pros: The fooooood!!, The atmosphere, The shop area

Cons: The price, The location

Good food, great environment - Edit

In the middle of a very long day, my girlfriend and I decided to stop in at ORIBIO for lunch before we checked out the Suita Expo commemoration park. As I entered the restaurant I was struck by the range of foods available for sale out the front, particularly a wide variety of reasonably priced TVP (which I wish I had found a year ago, they would have made my life a lot easier).

We entered the dining area, and we were the only people there. The dining area was beautiful. It only seats 18 people who sit in two lines either side of the tables. We sat on the tatami side of the dining area. Behind us was a small garden area with a water feature. All around, it was very beautiful.

The server brought us a menu and water, and a few minutes later returned with an English menu. I ordered the katsudon set: fried "pork" (tofu) on rice, with some konyaku noodles and a soup; my girlfriend ordered the tartar "fish" burger set, which came with smiley fries and a glass of juice. Both meals were absolutely delicious, though a little small, and, while not particularly expensive, certainly weren't cheap by Japanese standards.

Overall, the experience was very positive. The location was a little round-about to get to, and the meals were a little small (if you're hungry, you might want to get more than just one meal), but the food was delicious and the environment was beautiful (the best of any restaurant I've visited in Japan). I'd highly recommend this place if you're in the area, and if you're not, I'd recommend eating here as part of a day trip to Suita.

Pros: Beautiful enviroment, Great food, Great service

Cons: Out of the way, Smallish meals

my absolutely favorite place - Edit

If I'd be sentenced to death tomorrow and the judge would let me go to eat at my favorite restaurant...... I'd go here and order "炭火焼き"(soy Teriyaki skewers) ベジカツ丼(rice bowl) and die.

If you think Japan's vegetarian foods are sucks, please go there before making your final decision... But the only problem is this place is in suburbs of Osaka need to take a bus or taxi from nearest station, and please call ahead the dinner is open from 7:00 pm and sometimes they close at night. Just writing this review makes me want to go there now!! Irresistible!!

Great Meal at a Peaceful Cafe - Edit

I found this place while on a work trip to Osaka using the HC app (meaning it was one of the closest to where I was), and was very pleased I did.
I had a delicious meal in a peaceful, downstairs room, and bought a few goodies to take away for my trip.
The owner/manager spoke good English and understood veganism well. Some dishes contain dairy, but many were vegan.
Definitely recommended!

Pros: good vegan food, peaceful dining area
