Delicious - Edit

Great restaurant with something for everyone. Easy for vegans and vegetarians to find something, and a good place to go with people who do eat meat as well. Totally halal restaurant with no animal products used in any seasonings. Great location and friendly staff who speak English.

Good choice of vegan and vegetarian food - Edit

Very close to the Senso-Ji temple, with an English menu and lovely, English-speaking staff, this restaurant caters for vegan, vegetarian and halal eaters .
We had a veg burger and a (vegetarian) pizza, plus the tofu chocolate gateaux which was delicious.
All the food was delivered quickly, very tasty and reasonably priced.

Pros: Good range of vegan options

Cons: None

Really bland veggie burger - Edit

This was my first vegan meal in Japan. I must have ordered the wrong thing since everyone else gave this place four stars. The veggie burger had a whole menu page dedicated to it so it seemed recommended.

Maybe I'm spoiled by California veggie burgers but I thought it was awful. Bland, weird texture, and the lettuce and tomato on top were poor quality by Japanese standards. The staff was nice and there was more on the menu so maybe you'll have better luck. This was my worst meal in Japan.

Pros: Nice staff

Cons: Awful veggie burger, Serves meat

Nice vegan friendly place - Edit

It is a good place if you are looking to eat something in the areas as they are not many vegan options around.
Food was good (they are vegan friendly even if is not their main intention) I like the concept of eating clean an organic and they have food for everyone.

Pros: Good food, Friendly staff , Food for any diet

Cons: Vegan options limited

good if you want faux meat - Edit

i went here and enjoyed my meal, but i find it weird having something that tastes like meat since i'm totally not used to that taste anymore...

but if you are transitioning, or still enjoy something like a big ol' cheeseburger, they have you covered...

Clearly labeled menu - Edit

The menu has all clearly marked with pictures what is in them (e.g. Milk, egg, gluten, etc). Unfortunately they had very little that had no milk (for me) or gluten (for my partner) so we couldn't eat here. But we did have a nice soy smoothie. Also the coffee self-serving stand has both cow and soya milk.

Food tastier than it appeared, dull venue - Edit

More halal-oriented than vegan, they had four vegan lunch alternatives and I went for the noodles. It arrived quickly but looked very dull and uninspiring but tasted quite well. Portion could've been a bit larger maybe.

Pros: cheap and quick service, vegan options

Cons: dull atmosphere, food not aesthetically pleasing

Nice concept ! - Edit

My husband and I went to try this place since it's close to our house and starting to get famous.
The place is bright, the atmosphere is good and as a nice decoration.
It's very "international" typed and everything is write in English.
English is so "main" that my we had to ask for a Japanese menu.
(Good point for foreigners though, I think it's rare in here!)

It was lunch time and it was busy even though it was around 2pm.
They had 2 vegan options for lunch, and I had the "pizza salad" which is basically a focaccia spread with a tomato paste and dressed with a mixed salad.

It was simple but effective. They definitely have very good and organic fresh vegetables.
I could chose between a drink or a soup and I had a 100% orange juice.

My husband had a smoothie that is "beneficial for pollen allergy".
From what I understood they are really into custom and helping as much as they can for you to be able to eat and enjoy anything.
It's also halal, Muslim friendly (which I've never heard before in this area! It's a great thing.) and the staff seems to speak English well (from what I could hear from my table.)
They also had a small store inside where I found halal shio ramen which appears to be vegan as well! I'll buy some next time.

Would recommend, would go again.
(Hope they'll expend the menu though.)

Pros: price/portions are relatively good., dietary needs well understood., can arrange and custom meals

Cons: wish they had a dessert menu, toilets at the 2nd floor (restrain the access if d, Small menu
