Tasty curry! - Edit

Stopped by for lunch on a Friday afternoon at this cosy cafe run by a really friendly woman. The menu is mainly in Japanese but we asked her for the 'Vegetable Curry' and she understood immediately. At ¥800 it wasn't super filling but very tasty curry and comes with a side of salad and pickled veggies.

Nice curry nice atmosphere - Edit

We were happy to stumble upon this little restaurant as there aren't that many vegan options in this part of town.

Not your typical Japanese curry but not really Indian curry either - something else. The curry was quite spicy, which I like. You also get a decent portion of rice and the usual free water so your mouth won't be on fire or anything! ;) Lots of different vegetables on top of your curry and some pickles on the side (see picture).

They also have a sandwich with egg salad, so that one's not vegan but maybe vegetarian - please inquire. Other than that they have a salad which could be vegan but I forgot to ask so I don't know - please inquire. They have some vegetarian sweets (not vegan). I only know of 1 item on the menu that definitely contains meat (the meat curry).

I like that it's a one person restaurant and the service was fast enough considering. It's nice to see your meal be made right in front of you.

Cosy little place. 3~4 counter seats and Japanese seating in the back for about 4~6 I'd say.

I'd give it 3.5 stars: minus one for the meat served and minus 0.5 for the limited options. But the options are limited for everyone because it's just a one person restaurant and they are trying to make it accessible for vegans so I'll give them the 0.5 back and that makes 4 stars in total!

Pros: Good curry, Cosy place

Cons: Also serves meat, Limited options
