Fully vegan traditional dishes

This place was a great find right inside the Ueno station. Try the massamen curry and the white sesame tantan. They are yummy. The calories are mentioned with every dish too. I love their vegetable gyoza dumplings too.

Great food!

Really great ramen dishes and gyoza. No notes! Non vegan friend also enjoyed their food.

It is in Ueno station, accessed through the Panda Bridge Entrance (eastern side). On the map, it is Business number 6.

Un buen lugar para veganos

Para encontrarlo debes entrar en la estación (pagando) y subir a la tercera planta. Recomiendo pedir ramen, nos pareció lo mejor del menú.

Pros: Restaurante vegano, Hablan inglés

Cons: Echamos en falta salsas

After a very cold and rainy day running around Tokyo, it was great to stop at T's Tantan. The food is delicious, the staff are friendly, and the food comes out very fast. You can also get instant ramen to take home for 1000¥ for four cups. Can't recommend enough!

A must eat: delicious and affordable!

It took a min to find, as does everything in Japan if you are a Westerner just learning Japanese, but it was worth the hunt. It’s in a mall adjacent/inside the Ueno bullet train station. Super convenient. Super friendly staff.

And the food … 10/10, highly recommend. The menu is small but mighty. The ramen is slurp and drink the last bite delicious. This place’s high ratings are well deserved. Vegan gyosa was on point too!

vegan ramen options in the metro station

This restaurant is hard to find for a vegan tourist! You need to enter Ueno station then enter the metro gates. Then you need to go to the part of the station that has a third floor, find the long escalator, and check at the restaurant area floor map to locate T’s.

Side note: We added a Pasmo card on our phones, which makes it really easy, no need to purchase an IC card and no refill with cash. If you enter the metro gate only for that restaurant and exit at the same station, it charges 150¥ from your Pasmo card.

The restaurant had a line outside but the wait wasn’t too long. When it’s almost your turn, they bring you the menu outside to take your order. When you get seated your order is immediately served.

The vegan golden sesame ramen with a side of gyoza was very satisfying. Lots of different flavors going on there. After having tried the instant ramen from T’s, we can definitely say that they are a pale representation and eating there is way better!

Fast, convenient and delicious

You can’t go wrong with t’s Tantan.
Nice to have it in Ueno where aren’t many vegan options available.
A bit hard to find.

Great food. Got the golden sesame tantan and the cold noodles, both were fantastic. Service was fast, efficient, and enthusiastic. Very cool place, but you do get a bit of a rushed feeling since it's in the station. I'll be back to try the other dishes.
I have since tried the black sesame tantan which is my new favorite!

Light and Tasty

I don’t typically think “wow, I want ramen for breakfast,” but I went right when they opened at 10:00 and it was a great start to my day. Had the golden sesame ramen and gyoza, delicious, light, and filling - definitely among my favorite vegan places I’ve tried here. I’d consider making this a regular spot on future trips to Tokyo.

Rich in flavor

A great dinner to end my day. I had the Golden Sesame Tantan and gyoza, both were so good, rich in flavor. As I've read in other people's reviews, the service is indeed really quick. It's almost like a fast food. Nevertheless, it was a satisfying dinner. The place is cute too, and cozy. #Veganuary

I understand the hype now

We ended up going to t’s twice in one day because it was so delicious. We couldn’t believe how fast the food came out the first time so the second time we timed it- two minutes and thirty seconds from ordering our food was out!
The flavours were great the gyoza was great. Overall great experience 😊 #Veganuary

Pros: Delicious , Cheap, Quick

Tasty ramen

The place was a bit confusing to find, but the food was worth it. I brought big luggage and it was no problem. The server asked me about any possible allergies, which was nice.

Pros: Did not leave hungry, Inexpensive, Many toppings

Good ramen

Conveniently located inside Ueno station. Careful: you have to enter the ticket gate to get to the restaurant.
The food was really good, but even though many reviews call it the best vegan ramen in Tokyo, I must say that there’s a lot of other great places in the city. So in my opinion this place is a bit overhyped.
Still very tasty and definitely worth the visit!

Tasty and convenient

We were coming through Ueno station anyway after traveling from Osaka and it was amazing to have such a good vegan option for a late lunch when we arrived.
They were also super nice and let us put our suitcases off to the side.
The food was yummy and we would happily return.

Pros: Friendly

Drop by when take JR

I like variation. I've been in total 4 times. Three times in Ueno and once in Tokyo.
It would be better if each item is 200 yen cheaper.

It's alright for what it is

The allergen list was really helpful, and there were a variety of options. The ramen had a strong citrus / herbal quality, not exactly what I was looking for but it was alright.

Located within Ueno JR station

To access to this place, you need to tap in to the platform to access to Ecute Mall. Food is yummy and has quite a few options of ramen. Tried the black sesame tantan which is stated as “spicy” but it’s isn’t, at least for me 😂

Tasty Ramen

We came for an early lunch and got seated right away. Our baby got his own baby fork/spoon.
Never tried this location before. Service was friendly and quick! We got two different ramens, and both hit the spot. Gyoza was very good with a yummy sauce. Our baby was also very satisfied with the food and the friendly people.

Directions: it’s on the 3 floor within the train station near access to platform/gate 7 and 8.

Tasty stuf

Very good ramen and wonderful staff. A must if you're in the area.

You must go past the ticket barriers to find it - so we decided on a location to visit post-meal and just did it that way.
