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, gyoza, Japanese curry etc) and thought ‘why not try this?’ It had great reviews and more than lived up to them.

The prices are very reasonable and you can order individual small dishes or a set meal of lots of little dishes depending on how hungry you are. There are lots of options and they can make a vegan version of nearly everything on the menu (it is a fully vegetarian restaurant, but all you have to do is tell them you’re vegan). We had lovely fresh salads, pakoras, samosa, a few other fried treats, two small curries each, wonderful vegan naan, rice, pudding and chai tea with soya milk - but our absolute favourite was the soup (very light, delicate, warming, refreshing and full of flavour).

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 are following the strict and high standards of Iskcon and serving freshly prepared,delicious food at reasonable prices ! Indeed a 5Star rating .
Their manager Sureshji and other staff were indeed as humble as the owners!
Highly recommend! They can customize the dishes as per your taste!

Just amazing! Happy to found this hidden place. The set menu was very tasteful, staff was friendly and was happy to eat vegetarian masala curry. The naan bread was amazing, tasteful and fluffy, soup and salad as a starter also very good. Great to visit such a lovely restaurant.
