First Review by Wozza

a good place to go to - Edit

It is difficult to find vegan food in Tokyo so, T's restaurant is a welcome venue when you just want to order without having to explain your dietary requirements. The food , whilst not 'wow', it certainly is edible and will fill you up. The desserts are fairly good too. The staff are friendly and attentive.

Pros: soy meat dishes, thai curry, berry ice-cream

delicious dinner, great atmosphere - Edit

A bit pricey, but worth every penny. The karaage and lasagna were amazing! And they sell vegan cup ramen and scones too

Pros: Lots of dishes, Cup ramen!, Close to the station

Cons: Pricey

Nice vegan event - Edit

I heard that Tantan noodle here was awesome. ここのタンタンメンはおいしかったと3人に言われた翌週、ヴィーガンのランチイベントがあったので参加。Next week I found a vegan lunch meetup and joined it. さらりと食べやすく、ユーリンチンも追加。Taste nice and I added vege Yu Lin Chi. ドリンクとサラダ付きのランチセットはお得。Reasonable lunch set with a drink and salad. フレキシタリアンによるヴィーガンイベントをここでやってみたいなと。It's going to be fun to have an event for flexitarian here. おいしかったです。ごちそうさまでした。

Pros: good value

Cons: well...

Fantastic place - Edit

We loved this place so much we went back 3 times. The ramen in here is the best I have ever tried! The price is very reasonable too. It's not hard to find once you find Keiyo street, but you need to be inside the station and have purchased a ticket.

Pros: Great food, Cheap price, Many choices

Cons: You need to have purchased a train ticke

VeganMegane 28 Jul 2016 - I think you went to T's tan tan in Tokyo Station and not T's restaurant in Jiyugaoka. Same chain, different store. Here's the listing for T's tan tan: https://www.happycow.net/reviews/ts-tantan-tokyo-29533

A charming vegan restaurant in Jiyugaoka - Edit

Although slightly off the beaten path for tourists, this restaurant is a must visit for vegans and veggies in Tokyo!! The sister restaurant of T's TanTan ramen shop in Tokyo station, this charming bistro in the student neighborhood of Jiyugaoka (located in on the basement floor of a small shopping building) serves their famous ramen and much much more. Try their rich and creamy 'Doria' baked risotto dish - a classic 'Japanese-western' menu item, and their phenomenal parfait! 3-5min walk from Jiyugaoka station.

Pros: Varied menu , Lovely ambiance , English menu

Cons: out of the way from major tourist areas , Portions a bit small

T for tasty...? - Edit

Probably my favourite restaurant in Tokyo so far. There is so much variety on the menu and everything I've tried so far has been delicious. Everyone I've brought here (none of them veggie or vegan) has loved it too.

There are dishes from different countries including Italy, Thailand, China and Japan, so a wide range of tastes can be catered to. The desserts are delicious too and there's always at least one type of cake you cake take away as well as packaged biscuits, scones etc. They also sell a small variety of vegan foods you can cook at home, including a few of their own-made sauces/stocks. The white sauce in particular is something I haven't found elsewhere in Tokyo.

The waiters are all lovely and the owner herself sometimes wanders around and likes to have a chat. There is an English menu and all the staff seem to speak English to varying degrees, so there shouldn't be any problems for people who don't speak Japanese.

The restaurant is in the basement of Luz department store and is a short walk from Jiyugaoka station.

Delightful! - Edit

My Japanese hosts (who are not vegan) brought me to this restaurant, and we had a great time.
I ordered the pasta special which was a spaghetti in a creamy and flavorful white sauce (soy milk based), with fresh basil, and veggies. It was very delicious, though I wished there had been more veggies in there to balance the pasta.
For dessert I had the chocolate scone. It was amazing so I took a kabocha one to go. I really regret not buying 10. Jiyugoaka is a fabulous must-visit part of Tokyo, but it seemed to take us forever to get there. If it weren't so far I would definitely go back for more scones for the airplane ride home.

Pros: Delicious, Great atmosphere, Lovely staff

A change in pace - Edit

T's TanTan at Tokyo Central Station is famous amongst vegetarians in Japan. It is one of the very few places that sells vegan ramen and it is located in the very heart of Tokyo. However, the restaurant at Tokyo Station is merely the little brother of T's TanTan in Jiyugaoka.

After many good experiences in Tokyo Station, I wanted to try the real thing. Jiyugaoka isn't exactly a popular area for tourists, but the restaurant is less than 5 minutes by foot from Jiyugaoka station.

Compared to the Tokyo Station, the restaurant in Jiyugaoka is a world apart. In Tokyo vegan fast food is served at a fast pace. Waiters are always running, people are queueing outside and the lights are bright. T's TanTan Jiyugaoka is located in a basement floor. The mood is mellow, relaxed and jazz music is playing. This is like going from fastfood to slow food!

The most important reason to try the Jiyugaoka branch is the change in menu. At Tokyo Station only ramen is sold, in Jiyugaoka the menu is much more extensive. However, the menu is also more confusing. We selected our meals on the website, but it turned out the menu was changed and the website wasn't updated yet. Also, the English menu differs from the Japanese one. Once we made a choice, many dishes were sold out so we had to pick something else.

The portions are small, yet tasty. I started with the "hamburger" which is fact is just a piece of fake meat dressed in some sauce and onion rings. It is not a main dish like the menu suggests. My friend ordered pasta in tomato sauce which she raved about. We continued with fried chicken (tofu) in mayonaise, which also comes in very small portions. Finally we had gyoza which was the most tasty of the evening, but still not very satisfying. However, the total price of the meal adds up quickly by ordering so many small meals.

We left T's TanTan Jiyugaoka with mixed emotions. It differs so much from the Tokyo Station restaurant that only the name and a part of the menu overlap. Yet, the quality was fine and it does offer some welcome variety. Hopefully next time less items are sold out...

Pros: differs from the usual vegan meals, relaxed atmosphere

Cons: small portions, high prices, many meals sold out, english, japanese en web menu differ

One of the best in Tokyo - Edit

The location on the Happycow map is not correct. It is one block further away.
The food is excellent! Completely vegan except for honey (declaration on card). Style is western / chinese.
Creamy salad and mayo chicken were our favourites.

Pros: Excellent Food, Friendly Staff

Cons: Honey in chocolate Cake

Good food off the beaten path - Edit

First and foremost the map is incorrect! After you walk past Mizuho bank (to your right) continue past an intersection and find the Luz plaza. Had a very late lunch here. They have a lunch set from 11am-3pm. And I got the lunch set for 1800 yen. Salad, an extra appetizer (I choose pumpkin), the main dish (vegetable curry) and a choice of tea or coffee. The lunch set makes it easy to order even if you can't read Japanese.
Servings are not big but tasty. The curry was a bit salty that day. Cozy atmosphere inside. Not too loud. Next time I'll try the tantanmen and compare it with T's Tantan (sister shop in Tokyo Station).

Pros: inexpensive, a bit out of the way

Cons: good food, friendly staff, cozy atmosphere

The best place for dinner! - Edit

We went here for dinner several times during my visit to Tokyo. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and many spoke English. The menu was clearly labelled to identify dishes including honey, soy, ginger and other ingredients that might not be suitable for some diners. Food was always beautifully presented, service was helpful but not overbearing, and the desserts are to die for! Definitely try the chocolate parfait!

Pros: Chocolate parfait!, Friendly, helpful staff, Relaxing atmosphere

Wonderful food, welcoming and informal - Edit

Visited with a local who comes here regularly for the reliable, beautifully prepared vegan dishes. The salad is beyond reproach and the dessert (a layered affair like the one pictured) was fresh, bewitchingly creamy and fruity - am weeping gently as i type. Cannot wait to return.

Pros: Vegan, Fresh, Welcoming

Nice little place - Edit

Have been here a few times, they do a set lunch menu with a salad, main, pudding and drink for about 1500 yen, it's a little more expensive in the evening. The vege meat chunks in sauce for a starter is really tasty. No English menu, but every dish has a photo, and it's all vegan so there's nothing to worry about.

Pros: Good value set menu, Nice decor, Nice trendy area

Cons: Out of central Tokyo
