407-4 Zoshicho, Nara, Japan

Serves meat, vegan options available. A Japanese noodle restaurant in Todaiji compound, among the shops/restaurants on the path from Todaiji to Nigatsudo. Offers one vegan soba dish (indicated as vegetarian) which comes with a cup of green tea. There are also a few mushroom soba/udon dishes which do not have meat, but it is unclear if the soup contains fish stock. Note: kitchen may stop serving 30-60 minutes prior to closing, check ahead. Open Mon-Sun 9:00am-4:30pm.

cozy small shop - Edit

Very helpful old lady served us and let us know what choices were available. This is the only restaurant provided vegetarian choices inside the park area.

Nice environment and good taste

Cozy home style cooking - Edit

We went there on a cold day after visiting the big Buddha and it was just what we needed !!!! The Vegetarian set was amazing and the owners were the sweetest couple. Might have been the most authentic Japanese food we had while we were there

Pros: authentic food, takes credit cards

tasty hot soup - Edit

They have a lot of food items on the menu that seem vegetarian but make sure to ask/tell the staff you're vegetarian as some soups are made with fish broth. They will tell you which ones are for vegetarians. They have a vegetarian set option if you make sure to tell them. They have homemade dessert which is tasty as well.

Lovely, friendly spot - Edit

This place was such a relief after several days of being served "vegetarian" meals made with fish stock elsewhere in Japan. The vegetarian/vegan noodle set was delicious -- ¥1100 for the set meal with sides or ¥750 for just the udon dish. Sit by the door to see deer walk by outside every time it's opened! Note this place is a little worn around the edges, so not the place for a "nice" meal out -- but perfect for a day in Nara Park.

Pros: English menu, Affordable, Don't have to leave park

satisfying and generous set meal - Edit

There's just one option, a vege udon set meal, but there's not much more you could ask for. Comes with udon n broth, rice, pickles, sesame 'tofu' and tea. So delicious and filling.

noodles, sake and deer watching - Edit

This was a lovely, quirky and quiet place. Good Vegan noodles and we enjoyed some sake too - it was freezing outside - snow showers. Sweetly designed restaurant which felt a bit like eating at my grandmothers - very homey. Yummy food, tea and ambience.

Great Lunch Spot - Edit

We really liked stopping here for some yummy vegan ramen whilst patting the friendly deer in Nara park. It was very affordable and tasty and the elderly lady knew exactly what vegan was and it is clearly labelled in English. We also had the Azuki beans and motchi for dessert which was yummy. Not many traditional ramen places cater for vegans so it was great to be able to try them.

Pros: Tasty vegan ramen, Great location

Cons: More vegan options would be nice

Simple noodles in Todaiji area - Edit

There is very limited vegetarian options in Nara, so I was glad I found this place by chance. Yes, there is the very nice Kinatae restaurant, but you may not want to make your way to the other side of the city if you are enjoying yourself in Nara Park.

This is a simple noodles house within the Todaiji compound. It's one of the few shops/restaurants along the path from the Todaiji main shrine to Nigatsudo.

If you go into the restaurant, on the table, you find there is a note showing an item "Thick Japanese wheat noodles for Vegetarian. All material derived from plants!"

It was just 700Y nett including a cup of green tea. It's simple and satisfying. There is some vegetables and seaweed in the noodles.

On the menu, there were also a few mushroom soba/udon items. They look vegetarian, particularly the soy sauce broth one, but it is unclear if the broth has fish stock. I don't speak enough Japanese to clarify, so I just went with the vegetarian noodles.

Besides noodles, the restaurant also serves a few desserts that are vegetarian, such as rice cake with adzuki (red beans).

This restaurant is convenient if you are feeling hungry within the Todaiji area. I stayed in Deer Park Inn nearby and had my early dinner here at 4:15pm.

Pros: convenient location, inexpensive

Cons: limited menu, closes early
