Cozy and special atmosphere - Edit

Enter the door at the marked location and take the stairs one floor up - might be a bit hard to find.
The restaurant is spacios and cozy. It is a hiking-store on the same time, which gives it an interesting atmosphere. Good food! Fair prices. Not a big variety of it thoguh and the 'side dishes' are somewhat tiny.

The best vegan and organic South Asian cuisine in Kyoto - Edit

Yama-shoku-on is the collaborative space owned by hiking store Yamatomichi and vegan eatery Plant Lab. I had tried Plant Lab's Tibetan dinner set and Vietnamese che before while they were doing their pop-up over at Sunny Place, and I remember their food being amazingly authentic and delicious. Yama-shoku-on is an upgrade from their previous endeavors with a much bigger kitchen and spacious dining area. I love how warm and cozy the space is is even though there isn't much seating. This place is also perfect for hiking enthusiasts with its wide array of hiking and backpacking equipment.

This time I tried the idli set (fermented black lentil rice cakes) for my main course and it brought back fond memories of home. While these idli are slightly denser than the fluffy ones I remember eating back in Malaysia, the overall dish is very well done and a faithful recreation of South Indian delicacies. I also tried the che which had just the right amount of sweetness and creaminess. The prices are actually considered reasonable since the ingredients used are entirely organic and of high quality.

Coming from a background where I get to eat these types of ethnic cuisine regularly, I must say Plant Lab does a fantastic job coming up with their own vegan and organic adaptations of traditional South Asian cuisine. Their food is obviously catered towards a milder Japanese palette but overall I am very satisfied with their offerings. Highly recommended if you want to enjoy South Asian food in a relaxing atmosphere.

Great find, fantastic, peaceful restaurant - Edit

We were put onto Yama Shoku On from the owner of Cacao Magic and thought we'd check it out. A great little restaurant serving delicious South Indian vegan food. Menu was in Japanese but it was translated for us verbally. Lots of brochures supporting the vegan cause which is great to see in Japan. Thanks for the great evening.

very peaceful place - Edit

Locate on the 2nd floor above an old coffee shop. It is like a hidden space, but quite open atmosphere. This is one of the best vegan restaurant in Kyoto, tasty and peaceful cooking with fresh organic ingredients. I was moved by green salad, red sour soup and Indian south veg meals. I could eat them every day.

Sorry for the late response. - Edit

I'm so sorry for your bad experience.
Unfortunately, you came before we opened our shop.
We are open now and would love to see you again.
We are located on the 2nd floor, above Tanaka coffee and Second House.

Hidden Gem - Edit

Amazing South Indian food. I recommend the Dosa. It's a huge space with a ton of sunlight and also acts as a hiking gear shop. Tucked away on the second floor of World Cafe/Tanaka Coffee. There's a stair entrance on the left with a small sign that says 「山食音」

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: a little hard to find
