Small place with good food - Edit

This place was more like a bar than a restaurant. Pretty cozy. No English menu and the staff doesn't speak any English. Food was good but not very filling. Dessert is only available if you call ahead.

Salvo is the best! - Edit

I dined at Point with two friends during our trip to Toyko two years ago. It was just us and the owner Salvo that night and he was so sweet to us. He made us dish after tasty dish and kept coming over to chat with us and practice his English. This restaurant can be a bit hard to find, but it is so worth it!

Best vegan food in Tokyo - Edit

This was the last place we went to eat during our stay in Tokyo. In response to the prior review about being declined due to lack-of-Japanese - it might have just been an understanding? The owner/cook spoke enough English to help translate the menu and was much easier than previous experiences. Mind you, I primarily spoke Japanese when ordering/paying. I even managed to have a funny conversation with the owner - he is very friendly. Some things to note:

1. If you know how to read Japanese enough to get by, be warned - the menu is handwritten and kanji in particular is a little hard to read.
2. The place is a little hard to find but Google maps makes it extremely easy.

In terms of the food - it was fantastic. There's a shared section on the menu which are larger quantities than the smaller tapas menu options. I had shared spring rolls (delicious), a daily special pumpkin salad, soy meat, vegetable hamburger and fried rice - all of which were fantastic. The fried rice was a little sour for me though. Prices were very reasonable and according to my parents the white wine was also good.

Excellent despite language barrier - Edit

I visited there along with two friends. The food was excellent and inexpensive. We had a hard time communicating in english, and it helped a lot that one of us speaks a little japanese. Still they were very accomodating and the visit was well worth it.

Pros: Good food, Friendly, accomodating staff, inexpensive

Cons: language barrier, somewhat hard to find

Delicious - Edit

Very small and cozy restaurant with a friendly cook who is the owner as well i think. He is very helpful and helping you to translate the japanese menu into english if you don't speak japanese like myself. The food is great and yummy.

Cute lil hut - Edit

A special vegan restaurant run by a macrobiotic chef (local japanese) with the name of Salvo.
He has prepared us with some wholesome meals all by himself. Kudos to him.
Advise to call first to make reservations.

Pros: tranquil atmosphere, healthy meal

Disapointed - Edit

I am putting this restaurant in my black list. In contrast of previous reviews, I was denied a service since I do not speak Japanese!!! and I am foreigner!!!. Yesterday I went there around 8pm and entered and the chief just stand before me with absolutely unfriendly attitude, something absolutely unusual for a vegan restaurant. I tried to explain that I would like to eat something, tried gestures etc. nothing helped. In the end he told me in bad English that he don't speak English??? and was happy to see my back. A Japanese couple come just after me and was friendly accepted and served. I went before to 5-6 other vegan restaurants in Tokyo and the people there were super friendly and accommodating with much less English. I travelled half of the globe to get this??? If so they deserve to be taken out of the list since they wasted one evening for me and may be for other foreigners as well. Look like they are happy with local customers only. I may say only "Good Luck".

Cons: DoS

cozy place for a good vegan meal - Edit

Just a few minutes' walk from Wakamatsu Kawada station, I visited on a Friday night and was not disappointed. They menu is fairly diverse with a nice long list of fresh seasonal specials. I had some handmade shojin harumaki (fried veg spring rolls), the tomato avocado salad (beautiful!), and the ume shiso fried brown rice. Everything was wonderful and like something you would find at an upscale fusion restaurant. Unique vegan items that I don't see at other places in Tokyo. Definitely recommended if you're in the area. They also sell some packaged vegan food items.

Pros: interesting fusion dishes, very fresh ingredients, friendly staff

Totally excellent vegan food in Tokyo - Point - Edit

'Found this place on-line and it sounded too good not to try... we were not disappointed!

Food is delicate and leaves you feeling super healthy, rather like when one eats at a macrobiotic restaurant, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if most of the veges were organic!

The chef speaks plenty enough English for and English speaker to understand, and he was quite happy to make clear what each dish was as the menu was completely in hand-written Kanji.

Dishes tend towards Western vegan food, but with a delicate Japanese edge to each. The salad was remarkable, with subtle dressing, bits of tempeh and thin-cut fried veges. Tofu steak burger very tasty too, and nicely presented.

A large jug of cold water on the counter is available and unlike anywhere else I tried in Tokyo, the water was either filter or boiled and there was no horrid taste of chlorine!

Gazpacho soup, something I never order, was actually delicious, and the steamed aubergine ohitashi with Japanese dressing was totally oi shi - delicious!

Prices were fine for Tokyo evening dining - for two satisfied eaters we spent 5000 yen (£33) including 100% fruit juices.

Easy to find if you take the 'Wakamatsu' exit from the metro, and then turn hard right down the back street 'Wakamatsucho' and go about 150m

Service was super fast, and no reservation was needed on a Wednesday night - the small place had plenty of seating.

Pros: Affordable, Easy to find, Friendly

Great little vegan place in Shibuya - Edit

The Point is a really nice all vegan place to eat. Not too expensive and delicious.
The owner didn't speak english too well but took the time to somehow explain with hands and feet (and the help of our cheap japanese language skills) what each dish and drink was. So communication worked out pretty fine! :D
The food was rather japanese; tempeh, steamed vegetables, "burger steak", which is a soy-meat patty, etc. But very good. Drinks were great as well. Fresh and delicious juices and desserts (maroon cake and sweet potato pie).

We believe when we entered he tried to tell us that you usually have to reserve a table there in advance, because it's pretty small. But on that evening it was okay for us to stay without having reserved first. So you might want to do that before going there.

Pros: Nice owner/cook, Very good food, Reasonable prices

Cons: Reservation might be needed

Nice place, good food - Edit

This is a nice restaurant serving delicious food. The prices are not that inexpensive, but they are reasonable for the quantity and the quality of the food. I had a tenpeh and vegetables plate that was around 1000 yen, and my friends took the soy meat dish at 900 yen. Both were delicious.
Just one point : we waited the dishes a little bit too long... but it was ok, as the food was really great.

Pros: great food, nice atmosphere

Cons: long waiting time

Good value - Edit

A few minutes walk from Wakamatsukawada station, Point is located in an alleyway near a florist. Even with GPS it took three hours to find it. If you come out of the station at the big crossroads, take the street sharp left. The lunch menu contained a variety of dishes at 890 yen a pop, and each came with soup, side salad and pickles- quite a feast. There's no english menu but the staff will get what's available acroos to you in a mix of broken English and gesticualtion. The cutlet dish, the tempe burger and the spring rolls (more like a potato croquette) were all pretty good and at the prices, you can't really argue.

Pros: Cheap, Big portions, Friendly

Cons: Hard to find
