Paprika Shokudo - Edit

Beautiful, laid-back restaurant. Food is delicious with a mixture of western and Japanese flavours. English understood and staff very friendly. The organic beer was lovely! Ate here twice during a one-week stay in Osaka!

A must go - Edit

Some of the best vegan food I've had. I've been here about 6 times now. The fried "chicken" and paella are must tries. They have a wide variety of options, from pastas to donburi, and some delicious desserts too. The atmosphere is also quite nice, and sitting out on the patio/front area at night under the lights is wonderful. They also have outlets by some tables where you can charge your phone etc.
In addition to food, they have some vegan and organic products you can take home, like instant ramen, energy bars and also vegan merch. They take both cash credit card too.

Pros: Delicious food, many options, Open late, Delightful atmosphere

Cons: A bit pricy, A bit hard to find

Delicious and wonderful - Edit

Love this restaurant just a few blocks from our house. Delicious clean vegan food Staff speaks English delicious curry, deep-fried vegan oysters, salad you name it. We have not been disappointed with any dish and we have eaten there three times so far. Cozy atmosphere. A wonderful place. We are looking forward to going to the vegetarian vegan parties on the third Saturdays of each month!

Great all over - Edit

The food was delicious, brown rice was cooked well and had some curry seasoning sprinkled on top which was good. Was able to have a coffee with just a little soy milk rather than the 2 extremes of black or latte which I was so pleased about. The veggie broth had lots of actual pieces of vegetable in it. The salad dressing was lovely, seasame rather jan a vinnegrette which was a great change compared to other places. The various price options means that this can be very reasonable too!

Pros: They do take out boxes!, Lots of veggies in the soup, Good coffee

Delicious Japanese comfort food made vegan, amazing desserts - Edit

I have mixed feelings about Paprika Shokudo because the food isn't always consistently good and they closed unexpectedly without prior notice a few times I tried to go there. However the last few times I've been there were pleasant. I like their faux meaty and fishy donburis (rice bowls) which are veganized versions of Japanese comfort food as well as their decently portioned set meals the most. They are very good at recreating meaty Japanese dishes so this is a good place to bring your omnivore friends and family. I also enjoy their soft serve which is from Vegans Cafe in Kyoto and their baked cheesecake which is one of the best I've had in Japan. I also like that they have take-out bentos with their delicious faux meat and seafood. Overall this is a feel good restaurant with friendly staff and tasty food. One of my go-tos when I'm in Osaka. They also organize monthly vegan meetups on the third Saturdays of each month.

Heavenly desserts - Edit

We went mainly for desserts and ordered pizza to take away. The soy milk soft serve ice cream parfait was delightful. The tofu baked cheesecake was very good. The pizza was quite unique taste but yummy. The staff was polite and can communicate well in simple English and there's English menu. The cafe was lovely with some groovy music on. Recommended.

Pros: Good taste, Good atmosphere , Good variety

Cons: Quite high price, May need to wait long for your order

Amazing flavours! - Edit

I had the Yakiniku rice bowl with soy meat, it was really flavorsome, the portion was pretty big (especially the soy) but also so delicious it was just right. Such good flavours! I also had a tofu baked cheesecake, didn't know what to expect but it fantastic, the menu is big and creative, I honestly I want to try all the dishes!!

Pros: Flavor, Many options

Expensive, but nice atmosphere - Edit

Reading all this comments I was really excoted about visiting this restaurant. The atmosphere ist perfect and the restaurant is really nice. The staff is also very helpful and they have english menu. But it was reaaaally expensive! A cold tea cost 450yen, small green salad 700yen and a small portion of tomato risotto 1200yen. Really expensive. Food is organic but I didn't like it much.

Almost too good. - Edit

The food here is a take on classic set meals available at most Japanese cafes. It's great for anyone who feels like they're missing out on yakiniku or karage. The atmosphere is cosy and the staff and very welcoming.

Pros: many vegan options, nice atmosphere, welcoming staff

Cons: almost too much food

Slow and mediocre - Edit

The food was just okay - we ate there yesterday and I've already forgotten what we had, so I can't provide any more details. Very slow service (and we remarked on how the food could possibly have taken that long to make, given how simple it was).

great restaurant in Osaka and good vibe - Edit

I went there with some friends and we all love the food and the atmosphere,specially because there are not many places like this in Osaka when they promote not just veganism but a healthy vegan way of eating (who I am really into).
Main course tasty (soya meat veg and rice) and desert was good we request tofu cheesecake and a brownie.great presentation both of the dishes and good size portions.
I just think that is a bit expensive,however don't forget that everything is organic and well thought plus you can buy many things in the restaurant (they have a little store)
Overall was a good experience!

Pros: great food, many options, little store inside

Cons: is a bit expensive

not just a vegan restaurant but a store too::: very good - Edit

The restaurant per day takes you to Europe with its quaintness and relaxed ambience.
Having said that, the service is pure Japanese... sweet... happy and smiling.
I ordered for the crispy mock meat in yakinoki: was simply superb....
also ordered for chef's 4 appetisers: out of the 4 dishes that came, lasagne and mash potatoes were good. Other 2 were average.
They also have vegan wine, soft beverages, smoothies and desserts.
Will surely recommend if you in this area.
I came back feeling very good and satiated with food.

Super delicious vegan food - Edit

Love the food here. Worth walking here. The waiter asked us whether we can eat garlic and onions, we said no and he took note not to add them into the dishes. Love their understanding.

tasty and very nice place! - Edit

A great vegan restaurant with big portion (so my husband is happy).
They use a lot of gluten meat so vegan can try Osaka's meat specialty cruelty free! They use a lot of oil and sauce.
I know most of their food is organic but I don't know about the gluten meat and oil... I should ask one day..

Pros: Very good food, Big portion

Cons: In winter it is cold inside

Confusing - Edit

I'd heard so many great things about Paprika that I invited a friend to lunch. Then I just felt bad...

I can't figure out why people like this place! It is very cute. I loved the interior, but otherwise I can't think of a reason to go here again.

All I can remember of my lunch was trying to finish this bowl of "curry" which seemed to be just a pile of TVP with bland curry spices.
My friend was unimpressed too.

It gets so many good reviews, that I might give it another go by myself.

Pros: Cute interior

Cons: Gross food

Tasty and satisfying - Edit

We got the (all vegan) broiled eel rice bowl, the fried oyster set menu dinner and the 4 item appetizer set. Really delicious! They also come by and give you a choice of items from an appetizer tray to start of your meal. We also had the screwdriver (organic orange, and mandarin orange which was an interesting touch), and the green smoothie.

Outstanding vegan restaurant - Edit

This is an excellent vegan restaurant with a fantastic choice of food and drink. The staff were friendly and helpful and we loved it so much we went twice for dinner during our short stay in Osaka. The second time we went, we got talking to one of the staff members who was absolutely lovely and also concerned about us getting back to our apartment in the torrential rain.

Pros: Delicious food, Super-friendly staff, Nice vibe
