First Review by eric

Simple but delicious home-cooked style food - Edit

Yin Yang Flower Cafe is a little out of the way for me but it's located at a laid back and peaceful neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle which is a nice getaway. The cafe itself is very small but I love how intimate and cozy it feels. I opted for the veggie plate and it came with some stir fried soy meat, mashed pumpkin, marinated carrots, konnyaku, burdock and sesame flavored cucumber. I enjoyed how flavorful and well balanced the dishes were; they reminded me of my grandfather's cooking which brought back pleasant memories. They also have a nice drink menu with many choices such as masala chai, juices, herbal teas, hemp beer and coffee. Overall I had a great time chatting with my friend and enjoying the food there. Owner was also friendly and accommodating. Will return again.

Delicious - Edit

The Vege Plate really exceeded my expectations! Such good flavors and a really nice selection of food. I posted a photo of it! I also ordered the Masala tea, I highly recommend it.
My partner ordered the curry with miso soup on the side and he loved that.
Would definitely go back!

Great, friendly cozy location - Edit

Came for dinner, ate vegan curry and drank a lot of water. The vegan curry was excellent. Owner was very friendly, talked to me about why I was in Japan and why I was vegan, and gave me a good opportunity to practice my Japanese speaking ability. Also seemed willing and able to understand/speak in English, if that's needed. Good value for portion.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Nice vibe

Delicious macrobiotic vegan Food - Edit

We had a really great lunch at Yin-Yang Flower Cafe. The food (was prepared nicely and tasted delicious. We tried the curry (800 Yen) and the lunch set (1000 Yen), both were tasty and a very good value for a very reasonable price. On top of it the food is organic and macrobiotic.
As desert we got two muffins (180 Yen) which were not too big, but very tasty too.
The owner is really friendly and we enjoyed talking with her.

Pros: Tasty Food, Excellent value for the money, Organic!
