Fantastic noodles! - Edit

We hebben gedineerd en het was fantastisch. Ik had de salade met gember soya vlees en mijn vrouw de noodles, beiden veganistisch bereid. Het was echt fantastisch lekker! Ik kan het iedereen aanraden. De kok en zijn vrouw waren supervriendelijk en we bleven na het eten nog een tijdje praten. We hadden een super gezellige avond en zitten er sterk aan te denken om er morgen weer te lunchen voor we gaan.

Pros: Veel veganistische opties. , Supervriendelijke mensen. , Fantastisch lekker.

Cons: Geen.

Amazing Vegan Food! - Edit

I prefer somewhere that can do both vegan and meat so my husband and I can both enjoy our meals. This place had the best vegan meals so far in Japan for us. The vegan crispy soy ‘chicken’ tasted amazing! The chef could speak some English and as we were the last ones in the store came and chatted to us. He gave us the complimentary dessert as well which was delicious.

Best vegan food - 5 stars! - Edit

Would give 5 stars but happy cow doesn’t allow that for places that are non-veg. For me places that have both meat and vegan options are better as it suits both me and my husband who is a meat eater...

Lovely little restaurant with clearly labelled vegan options. Kind staff (chef and his wife) who were very friendly. They gave us a free little dessert at the end of the meal.

Great food, and by far the best option for vegans in Nagoya. We will go back tomorrow I’m sure.

Vegan choices included fried soy ‘chicken’, soy ‘pork’ in black vinegar, vegan tantanmen ramen, mapo tofu with soy mince and some salad options that I don’t remember.

Just go, even if it’s a little out of your way! And if you do go and you like it, leave them a review on tripadvisor - they deserve every success

Edit: we ate here all 3 nights we were in Nagoya in the end! The mapo tofu and tantanmen ramen were my favourite dishes.

Pros: Cute place, Lovely staff, Low prices

Cons: Could stock cans / bottles of Japanese craft beer

Amazing service - Edit

The restaurant is located about 20 minutes walk from the Nagoya Castle but is definitely worth the walk! The owner of the shop is so nice and it is really a nice and cozy place to eat. The food was really nice with a lot of vegan options compared to many other places in Japan. I can highly recommend it.

Pros: Amazing food , Formidable staff , Very cozy atmosphere

Cons: Not the best location, you have to walk a bit.

Best vegan food in Nagoya - Edit

This is hands down the best vegan food in Nagoya. The chef Hiroshi has an incredible amount of care and consideration for the customer, and it shows in the details like the vegan egg he created for the tantanmen, which incidentally is the best I've had in Japan. The black vinegar soy meat is also the best I've had. I will be stopping here in future trips.

Pros: great food, well labeled, friendly chef

Cons: none

Best vegan food in Japan!! - Edit

Had some incredible sweet, sticky soy meet and vegetables, which were even topped off with some cucumber butterflies and edible flowers. We also had the schezuan noodle soup which again was amazing. The chefs wife was lovely enough to bring out some coconut yoghurt pudding for us to try (it was so good!!). After we finished our meals the chef came out to chat with us about our trip to Japan. He and his wife are so lovely and we are super thankful to have eaten at their sweet little restaurant - might go back tomorrow!

Pros: food, atmosphere, service, price

five star ! - Edit

I would have given five stars for this restaurant but HappyCow would not let me as it is not a strictly veg restaurant .... :(
We ordered quite a bit of foods and every single dish was spectacular! The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the owner with her wife is passionate with what they create.

I normally don’t like eating oily and salty food as they make me feel bad after, but this place is different. They follow the science of food combination and use superior quality of ingredients.

Highly recommend this place!

Pros: delicious and healthy food, location, service

Amazing Everything! - Edit

Me and my girlfriend came here on our first night in Nagoya and were amazed at the kindness of the staff (consisting of only husband and wife) and the amazing food. We loved it so much we went back a second night also considering we were only there for 2 nights! If I could give this place 5 starts I would! It is clear that the chef adores cooking and holds the customers feedback with very high regard which is so rewarding from a customers perspective. Highly recommend! Best food and service we have had the whole time we have been in japan!
If we could we would probably just go back to Nagoya simply for this restaurant!

Pros: everything!

Worthy of 5 Stars - Edit

Plenty of vegan options here, which are clearly marked on the menu. Seems a fusion of hearty Chinese and Japanese cuisine. We had mabo tofu and vegan ramen. Both were the best vegan renditions of either dish I've had (and I had a lot of vegan ramen in Japan!). The waitress and chef were both super friendly and the chef even asked to take a photo with us. A gem in Nagoya.

Awesome!! - Edit

I'd give this place 5 stars if it was possible. Delicious food, amazing service, really good wine, healthy ingredients, good music... I had a great time, didn't want to leave! We tried as many things from the vegan choices as we could but I'd have to come a couple more times to try everything. Big recommendation, don't miss this place!

Pros: Many delicious vegan options, Big portions, Great service (speaks only Japanese), Location, Music, Atmosphere

Cons: Not many alcoholic drink options

Worth 6 stars - Edit

Incredible vegan ramen with a vegan egg! Similar to T's Tan Tan but I think it was even better. The owners are lovely and one of them is vegan. We chatted to them for a while and had a great time. We got given some complimentary moon cakes before leaving. I wish I was in Nagoya longer so we could go back!!

Pros: Friendly engaging staff Incredible food Reasonable

Just fantastic - Edit

Would do 5 stars, but the max for nonveg is 4.

This place has more choices for vegans than some of the exclusively veg places in town. We had pickles, tofu salad with amazing sesame dressing, greens stir fried with yuba in a yummy sauce, and tantan ramen. There were 4 or 5 other things we could have ordered as main. We also got very nice cakes at the end. The quality of ingredients was really great.

Owners are very nice-- they chatted for a while and gave us good suggestions of vegan spots in other cities in Japan. When in Nagoya in the future, this is the first place we would go.

Best Vegan food I had in Japan - Edit

We ended up going here twice in our two nights in Nagoya as it was so good. We tried a big portion of the menu and everything we had was perfection. The vegan ramen which I believe is a lunch time special was by far the best. The owner is so friendly and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely be back next time we're in Japan. Would give it ten stars if I could.

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly staff

Delicious food, kind owner. - Edit

My omni spouse and I are in Nagoya for a few days and needed some place to eat, so we ended up going here. I'm really glad we did. Their english menu wasn't huge, but the ramen I got was excellent. After we finished eating, the owner came to ask us where we were from and what we thought about the food. We ended up talking about how we enjoy the Kanto's seasons because they're so like that of our native Georgia (the US state). He talked about how he felt Japanese food is well suited to vegetarian cooking and explained how he made the vegan egg for the ramen from potato and kabocha. Out here in Japan, I'll eat eggs if they're given to me, because I don't want to be wasteful, but this was an 'egg' I didn't have to choke down. Super-positive experience to go with the yummy food.

Feeling warm and loved in this restaurant - Edit

In my 5 days of trip in Nagoya, I came to this place twice. Not only because it's close to my hotel, but also the foods are delicious and the owner is very nice. The owner had been to China and Hong Kong (and I am from Hong Kong), so he speaks some Chinese. With some Chinese and body languages, we could communicate very well. It's lovely that they do have a vegan English menu. The environment is very cozy and feeling like home.

I had vegan ramen twice. It tastes really good. It's like Chinese sichuan spicy noodles. For the second time I came, he even put a vegan egg on it. It's made with potato and pumpkin. The texture and taste like a real boiled egg. I also had sweet and sour soy meat during my second visit. It's really good. The Chinese Po Lei tea is also nice. I highly recommend this place.

Pros: English Menu, Friendly owner, Delicious food
