Such a fan - Edit

Loved this place!!! Okay, some of the sushi imitations aren't the most perfect match, but I can't think of a better way to do sushi while vegan than this place. Serves egg and dairy in some dishes, but labels accordingly. Not expensive, same rate as comparable non-vegan places, 30NT per plate.

A Happy Accident - Edit

I accidentally stumbled upon this place after getting lost trying to find a temple and a few other places. I gave up on even trying to find a vegan restaurant, and there this place was to save the day.
The food wasn't spectacular, but it was quite good and inexpensive, and there was a nice variety of green plates (vegan options) to choose from. I ate about 6 plates of food and some tea, and it was not bad at all. The sushi options were very creative and I had never tasted anything like them before. Would definitely try this place again.

Pros: Good vegan options, inexpensive

Cons: None

just ok - Edit

There are lots of options (green plates for vegans) but most are just ok. There are better places to go for vegan food in taipei.

love the idea - Edit

nothing blew me away but it was decent food and I love the idea, veg sushi needs to be a thing! never had spicy edamame, it was great. some of the best plates were hot from the back, a picture of them is rotating around the belt and you add your table number to order one.

not very tasteful - Edit

Even though, the concept is nice and the place is fun, the sushis were quite deceiving. No flavor and not very fresh.

Pros: nice concept, not too expensive

Cons: not tasteful

Awesome! - Edit

Quite honestly, when you think about it, vegetarian/vegan sushi isn't very complicated. Sushi has always been my downfall and when I finally made the complete switch to becoming a strict vegetarian, I still think of those sushi-eating days fondly.

Then I heard about this place!

The place is very easy to find. For details, I found a really nice post about it: http://vegantaiwan.blogspot.tw/2014/08/shuiwen-kaiten-sushi-restaurant.html . The price is 30 NTD per plate, any plate, so around 1 USD. It ranges from sashimi to nigiri and even a handroll and some fusion options like stuffed and fried stinky tofu with pickled cabbage. Everything is vegetarian and the plates are color-coded to let you know what kind - vegan all the way to lacto-ovo vegetarian.

I love the place because it covers that little niche I had been missing, but it's probably not a place to go regularly - the food would just blend together. However, I have to say that some of their fake meats do resemble the real thing (raw "salmon", anyone?), which I applaud them for -- how do they do it?? It's probably konjac-based. It's a novelty place and I enjoyed it... one of those fun things to do. I also applaud them for their creativity - if only we have one back in the States!

I would definitely recommend it. Even my husband who is not really fond of sushi thought it would be a nice place to take people for the first time. I mean, who wouldn't like food to travel to you by conveyor belt?

By the time we left, we finished 17 plates and there was a steady flow of traffic. Looking around, two Buddhist monks had joined us!

NOTE: there is a bar for the conveyor belt, but towards the back, there are also booths for larger parties that might sit a maximum of 4 people or so. The actual restaurant size is LARGE.

Pros: quiet and clean, reasonably prices, fun!
