As many have said, it’s not always easy to find good, truly vegan food in Japan but this was fantastic. We fancied a change from all the foods you tend to try here first as a tourist (like everyone we’d been stuffing ourselves with sushi,...More

The owner is a really sweet guy and the food is great! The set lunch options are delicious and super cheap for what you get; we would definitely come back. They can also easily cater for vegans.

In this trip to Osaka as usual went to try a new Indian Restaurent “Shama”. During the conversation with the manager was surprised to know that it was an authentic complete vegetarian Vaishnav Indian Restaurent run by Iskcon devotee Anand Priya Devi Dasi Mataji. They...More

I visit Shama every time I am in Osaka - usually once a year, and have previously rated it 5*. But this time I have taken it down a notch, as the usually impeccable service was way off base. Despite the review below, if you...More

This place was great for vegetarians so many choices and the food was good quality. Its a small restaurant but a good find in osaka where the main dishes all seem to have seafood or meat.

A cute little restaurant near to the subway, it serves excellent curries that don't threaten to burn your tongue off. Enjoyed the Naan as well as the curry noodles. While the prices were not cheap (but still not expensive), it's also going towards a good...More

I think it can accommodate 20 people easily in sitting. But if you want to arrange buffet for tourists, 30 could also be ok . Please call the manager and confirm
