Best Ramen! - Edit

I was in Tokyo a week and went here twice. If you are passing through Tokyo station (and even if you didn't intend to, it's easy enough to connect there on your way to somewhere else in the city) definitely stop by! I had the white sesame ramen and gyoza. Highly recommend both. Friendly staff, great service. Both times the place was packed but the servers never seemed like they were in the weeds. I'll definitely go again when I'm back in Tokyo!

(Located in the Keiyo Street area on 1F)

Pros: All Vegan Menu!, Ramen!!, They sell pre-packaged cups (just add hot water)!

Cons: May be a little hard to find

hard to find but worth it - Edit

Amazingly great tasting ramen. Look for Keiyo Street shopping area in the Tokyo subway, inside the barriers. This was my third time here.

Shattering a low ceiling - Edit

I've never had much luck with animal-free ramen. Until now. T's Tantan was delicious, flavorful, and affordable! The restaurant itself was bright and inviting. I see it becoming a go-to during my time living in Tokyo.

Pros: Best veg ramen I've ever had, English friendly, Nice staff/ambience

Cons: All other veg ramen I've had up to now, Not the hottest ever, temp-wise, Paltry drink selection

Pros: All vegan menu, Friendly helpful staff, Reasonably priced

great food, slightly unusual location! - Edit

This was a really great meal and much cheaper than some of the other vegan options I tried in Tokyo. We fed two for the price of one person's meal at some other restaurants marked as being in a similar price range on here.

The only unusual aspect is that the restaurant is inside the station AFTER the barriers. This is uncommon in the UK so really caught me off guard and I had to ask for help from a member of staff to make sure we were doing the right thing. The directions on this site are correct and should be trusted!

Pros: tasty food, slightly cheaper than some other Veg options, fair, if not large, portion size

Cons: unusual location

Best Ramen in town. - Edit

I have NO problem paying to go into Tokyo Station to enjoy a nice bowl of the white sesame Ramen. I've taken non vegetarians and they also fell in love.

We were coming from outside the train station. We followed the direction towards Keiyo Line, and walked about 20 minutes (!), to end up on Keiyo street, which was almost where we started but on the other side of the entrance gates. It may be easier to use the Yaesu south ticket gates, because Keiyo Street is very close to this.

However, we were glad we found the restaurant. There was a queue (it was lunch time) but it moved fast. The waiters were efficient, friendly, spoke English and gave us an English menu. I choose the black sesame noodles with extra green vegetables and this was excellent and filling Not expensive. Water was served for free. It is diffucult to find vegetarian ramen in Japan.

Would have liked to come back, but we ran out of time. One tip: do buy a separate platform ticket and do not use your Suica or Pasmo card to check in because you won't be able to check out.

Pros: Vegetarian ramen, Tasty, Not expensive

Cons: Platform ticket is needed, Not very easy to find

only 2 gluten free options - Edit

I was so excited but everything had wheat. The did not have gluten free noodles. It all came down to a curry rice (that was very good) and plain veggies :(

Worth the wait - Edit

We ate at T's twice during our stay in Tokyo and ended up waiting in a long queue each time. Don't let that dissuade you...it was our favorite ramen of the whole trip!

Great ramen, convenient location - Edit

We really enjoyed our dinner here - so much so that we went twice during our time in Japan!

Lots of choice from an all vegan menu, quick service and large servings. You will probably need to queue to get a seat, but the queue moves quickly and the food comes fast once you're in.

The spicy ramen (marked with one chilli pepper on the menu) was a bit too hot for me, but my husband loved it. Be warned before daring the dish marked with two chilli peppers though!

Gyoza and fried soy meat were also a perfect addition to our meal - highly recommended

Pros: Good price, In the station, All vegan

Cons: Queue

Excellent vegan ramen - Edit

T's Tantan is by far one of my favourite restaurants in Tokyo. Located in Tokyo Station it makes a great place to stop for lunch if you're just arriving in the city or on your way elsewhere.
They can provide English menus and the staff are very helpful.
I've tried most of the ramen dishes on the menu and all are enjoyable, though the spicy peanut ramen and the shoyu ramen are my favourite.
The vegan meat side dishes are also quite good and very filling.

So glad this place exists. I'm definitely going back before leaving Tokyo. Extremely filling and doesn't feel oily/fatty like other ramen.

Pros: lots of options

Excellent Food in a Very Busy Location - Edit

After eating at T's Restaurant in Jiyugaoka, we were excited to try T's Tantan to try their Ramen. After arriving at Tokyo Station, we found out we had to buy a train ticket in order to get to the restaurant inside the station. This is OK if you are traveling somewhere, but if you are looking to stay in the area, you will be out a little money. This is not a reflection on the restaurant, it's just the fact that they are located inside Tokyo Station past the ticketing areas. It was a little difficult to find, but we were able to use Google maps to help us. Be warned, during lunchtime, the restaurant is incredibly busy and you may have to wait. Once we were seated, the food came out quickly and it was delicious! The broth is so rich that it's hard to imagine that it's Vegan!

Pros: Delicious Food, Quick

Cons: A little hard to find, Very busy and could be a wait

Worth a trip to visit while in Japan - Edit

To find: follow signs for Keiyo line from JR Line (you must be inside ticket area). You'll run right into it. So good! Definitely worth the hype. The ramen and dumplings were excellent. I had the Golden Sesame and the Black Sesame. Golden was nutty and super rich. Black had more of a spiced, peppery flavor. I prefer Golden. Prices were reasonable and the wait moved pretty quickly. Service was very quick.

Pros: Everything vegan, amazing flavors, Reasonable prices

Cons: Usually a wait, Must be inside ticket area of station

Great food for great value - Edit

Best vegan restaurant we've visited in Tokyo. The food was delicious and you got a big portion for the money you spend. It being located in Tokyo station makes it easy to get to and it having long opening hours is even better. Pay in mind that waiting times for a table is long during lunch and dinner hours.

It is a bit small and we had to wait for a table of 3 but it was worth it!

Pros: All vegan!, Quick service

Cons: Have to buy ticket to get into Tokyo Station

Delicious Vegan Ramen - Edit

It's really hard to find vegan ramen in Japan so this restaurant is a god send!
My non-vegan friend even said it was the best ramen he had in Tokyo!

The only problem was finding the restaurant itself which was a challenge as a tourist.

Pros: Great food

Very nice ramen place - Edit

After checking out a few disappointing establishments in Tokyo, I was very positively surprised by T's Tantan. I followed the signs for the Keiyō line and practically ran into the place. I visited on a Saturday morning, a quiet time with no lines and plenty of available tables.

The breakfast menu (English available) is simple, listing four staple dishes and some drinks. I went for a large (+100 yen) soy sauce ramen. The portion was quite generous. The broth was really tasty, the ramen were perfectly cooked and the veggie condiments were fresh. There were also two sweet and sour fake meat nuggets in the bowl. Those were my absolute highlight - if there was a dish that consisted of only those, I would order it anytime :).

As others have pointed out, the restaurant is located behind the ticket gates. I used my PASMO card to swipe in. When I tried to swipe out again at the same station, the system got confused and flashed "seek assistance." Fortunately, the attendant immediately understood that I had just visited the station and offered to charge 140 yen to my card and let me out, in perfect English. If you are not traveling, simply consider T's Tantan to cost an extra 140 yen and do not worry about getting in and out being some kind of hassle.

Update: I came back a day later to try the dinner offering. There was a queue outside now. I had to wait about 20 minutes. Some items were out - not surprising given how popular T's Tantan seems to be and the fact that it was Sunday night.

There were more ramen variants to choose from, plus extra veggies and other sides. I got the spiciest dish (labeled "very hot"). It was nicely spicy. I also got fried soy meat on the side. That was the sweat-and-sour stuff I had liked so much at breakfast - yeah! Everything tasted as great as it had for breakfast and was still very cheap. 5/5, definitely.

Pros: Tasty, Generous portion, English menu

Cons: In the ticket area (140 yen to get in)

fantastic chance find - Edit

Anyone travelling through Japan will know how hard vegan food is to find - and I stumbled across this place after a really long day exploring and it was just fantastic. I had the Midori Tantan with white Veg and it was superb.
