First Review by UrVeggieMate

This place is great! - Edit

Ordered: Spinach and bean vegetarian curry (they say it’s vegetarian, but it’s vegan too) with a small serving of rice. You can specify the amount of rice you want — half, small, regular, large, or extra large. Got a curry with a spinach based sauce. Had chickpeas and kidney beans in it and was topped with pumpkin, okra, fried potato, and bell pepper. All one slice of each.

First thing I noticed here was that the menu is super inclusive. There is something for vegans/vegetarians, omni’s, halal (no pork options), hindu (no beef options), and people with allergies. The menu is also in English and allergens are written beside each entry.
There are two veg options: a spinach/bean curry, and a mixed veg curry. Curry is TASTY but also a little bit spicier than your regular run-of-the-mill Japanese curry (my non-veg aunty ordered one of the hotter curries and said it was hot even for her Burmese/Indian standards). The heat level of the curry is written on the menu though, and you can always ask the staff to make the curry more/less spicy if you’d like.
Good value for money! For the portions you get, the price is pretty good. The small sized rice kept me full for quite a while!
Keep in mind that this place is small to medium sized. Could probably seat 20 people at most. For those who are interested, this place is Tripadvisor recommended but I can’t remember for what year.
Love this place, and love Nara too! Would rate 5/5 if I could because of the menu's inclusiveness and flexibility with customising your order.

More pros are listed here since I couldn't add more than 3.
- Not too far from Kintetsu Nara station and also close to other places with vegan options (Kururu, China Dining Hiten, LBK Craft, Zen, CoCo Ichi)
- Large portion sizes and good value for money

Pros: Easy to find & good central location, Super inclusive menu & allergens clearly listed, Flexible with order customisation

Cons: Stingy with the veggies they topped the curry with, Not an issue though, because they weren't, stingy with the spinach or beans!
