  • The vege-tofu curry soup with soba noodles is delicious as are the goma-ae and cha-ya roll! If you're unsure of what to order, ask your waitress; They're friendly and helpful for navigating the menu.
  • Get the curry soup with soba noodles!

  • Like doilies? Get the vegan cake to-go.
  • There is so much choice here that it's almost overwhelming for the typical veg*n who only reads a small subset of the menu. I often go here to satisfy noodly cravings.

  • this place is pretty expensive for ghass poos
  • Not open until 12:00 noon for lunch.

  • The vegan Japanese restaurant's namesake dish (the Cha-Ya Roll) is a sushi roll stuffed with asparagus, avocado, yam, and carrots, battered and tempura-fried, then drizzled with a sweet sauce.
  • Are you concerned veggie sushi you've had at other restaurants may have touched dead fish? No worries here - it's all vegan! And plenty of choices!
  • Vegan heaven
  • Sea vegetable salad, 3 types of seaweed with mysterious delicious shit on top
  • Poor reception. Good soba salad.
