Shizen Ya has really surprised me, it is very healthy (organic with no additives, with gluten-free options) and vegetarian-friendly. So if you are like me and worry about the nutritional value of meals, especially those that are not cooked at home, Shizen Ya is an ideal choice.
I had a quinoa and beans soup, an avocado roll, and spinach curry. It all tasted good, and had a very natural feel to it. Certainly puts the myth that ‘healthy food tastes bad’ to rest!
The venue is quite small (the restaurant probably seats 20 people, tops), but that was not a problem as we were a party of two. Despite its small size, it is nicely decorated and has a comfy feel to it. A word of warning for finding the place: it can be easy to miss, so be careful, you might just walk by it.
I will surely visit Shizen Ya again. It has made me fall in love again with Japanese food.
