Taiwanese Buddhist vegetarian

It's Vegetable serves Tawainese Buddhist cuisine (non-dairy vegetarian, including no onions or garlic).

They have an all-you-can-eat buffet for lunch for ¥980 and a dinner buffet for ¥1250. Both are excellent deals. You can also order a la carte and many of the items are around ¥700-800.

It's Vegetable also sells a number of their food items to be prepared at home, such as dehydrated gluten products that you just cook in hot water.

I was very disappointed with my dining experience at It's Vegetable. They used to be eat-all-you-can, then they changed to fill your plate up only once. Or so I thought. We went there and I ordered the medium plate since I was pretty hungry (there are 3 sizes to choose from: small, medium and large). I started to fill up my plate and I was not halfway through when the owner told me to weigh my plate. It exceeded the weight limit and he said I should pay for a large. I didn't want a large. I lost my appetite right there and then. They seem to be too kibishii about the portions. My friend got the small plate and she was not asked to weigh her plate but the amount of food she got was almost the same as my medium plate (small plate is 350 yen cheaper than the medium plate). I just felt that the owners were too concerned about profit and not about customer satisfaction. Extremely disappointed and won't be going back.

I've been here a few times and the staff were really friendly. Certainly no xenophobia - quite the opposite! The owner was very nice to us and explained everything in English.
I love the small bento box buffet, a very good deal and a great contrast to other restaurants in the area.
I'm not vegetarian but I find it hard to get enough fruit and veg in my diet whilst I'm out here, so go to It's Vegetable in order to up my veg intake.
The only confusing thing is the prices for the evening - it means per dish, not per person.

Take the JR Sobu line to Kinshicho and go out the north exit of the station (the one with the giant "donut" sculpture outside). The Kinshi Koen (park) will be across the street on the left. Cross the street (toward the park) but go right, instead of left. Go one block, and when you get to the "Straight Bureger-Lotterie" place, take a left and It's Vegetable is half a block down, on the right hand side.
