I had the salad and the yakisoba (stir fry noodles) with tofu. Both were delicious. The space is small and there is family-style seating. Because of this you are expected to not loiter after eating. It is great for a quick and delicious vegan meal.
Edadame has vegan friendly Japanese dishes with a delicate but lovely flavor. The food comes in tiny portions though and it becomes quite spendy to get full here. I started with their signature dish of edamame. I was slightly disappointed to find that it was literally a plate of cold edamame with a bowl to discard the shells in. I had been expecting some seasoning or perhaps stirfrying but I guess I should have read the menu more closely.
I ordered the tofu steak and rice (white rice only and a bowl costs 1.5 pounds) for my main meal. My tofu steak was extremely silky and had a lovely flavor although very little of the radish it advertised. My rice never came which was disappointing as I really was hungry.
In the end Edamame is a quiet little restaurant with lovely little flavors for not so small prices.
