    The restaurant was very hard to find as it was not on the ground floor. Once inside, the staff was formal and unfriendly. The chef in particular was very stiff and offered no insight into the food he was preparing. We were sitting at the counter right in front of him. We wanted to try something different and this was very different! It was good and abundant. But very expensive.

    This cozy, romantic spot will absolutely blow you away once your food hits the table. Think about how much fine dining relies on big ticket meat and fish items; now, take them all away. How will the chef deliver a five star fine dining experience? Chef Nomura doesn’t just deliver, he inspires. My wife and I left with a deep appreciation for Shojin Ryori cuisine and are looking forward to finding ways to incorporate more vegetarian meals at home. We cannot recommend this gem of a restaurant enough.

    Whether you’re a vegetarian or not, Sougo is definitely worth a try. From the first course to the last, I felt as though I had entered an edible and delicious forest—particularly when I was served this one soup with eggs and possibly tofu upon which a little leaf was placed on top called “snow falling on tree”(and it really looked like a little tree surrounded by snow. I loved being surprised by the unique and surprising ways that vegetables could be simply, yet deliciously prepared.

    お昼の御膳1,980円をいただきました。お店には若い男性スタッフさんが二人いただけ。真冬の寒い日に氷水が差し出され、ビックリしました。精進料理のお店なので、温かいお茶が出てくるものだと勝手に思い込んでいました。 口コミ評判も良く、醍醐のご長男がオーナーシェフとのことで期待値が高過ぎたのかもしれません。 料理、接客サービス、ファシリティ、全てが普通。少なくとも「お昼の御前」ランチのリピはありません。この界隈には他の選択肢がいくらでもありますから。 口コミを見る限りでは、外人さんや常連のお客さんには評判が良い様です。

    The service is excellent. I don’t speak Japanese and the chef made sure that he described everything that was being served and was very attentive. The food is excellent. I had the vegan tasting menu that had a variety of dishes and flavors. The ambiance felt upscale and relaxing at the same time. It felt like a great escape from a workday.

    Suogo is a must for anyone who enjoys well thought out, beautifully prepared and presented plant based cuisine. I sat at the bar and was lucky to chat with numerous chefs as they brought the course out. Watching them plate was also a treat. They speak food English and explain all the dishes well. Not to be missed in Tokyo

    野菜懐石を頂きました。 野菜中心のメニューは、ボリュームが無い場合もありますが、こちらは胡麻豆腐や生麩が使われていて、揚げ物も適量で満足でした。 お味付けも程良く、またタケノコ等季節は先取りでしたが、旬を意識したお料理が美味しかったです。 トマトが使われていましたが、夏の食材ですし、お酢で調味されていたので体を冷やし過ぎますので食べられませんでした。

    コースを頼みました。精進ないしベジタリアンという割に、同じような食材や揚がったものが多い印象で、コースを頼む人が少ないからかなと思いました。まずい料理は一つもないのですが、可もなく付加もなく無難という感じですね。 お昼からお酒も飲めますし、お店全体では静かで良い雰囲気だったと思います。

    This place is ideal for vegetarians and vegans looking for (otherwise) traditional Japanese cuisine. Be sure to specify no Bonita flakes, no dashi, etc., or you’ll get fish via the sauces and stocks, even on the “vegetarian” menu. But if you make clear that you are strictly no fish whatsoever, they will hook you up. I recommend going for the sake pairing for a really indulgent evening.

    A modern take on Shojin Ryori, the vegetarian temple cuisine. All the dishes were flawlessly executed and were flavourful. Welcoming staff speak English well and explain the dishes, which adds to the experience. Highly recommended in a city where there are thousands of food restaurants, especially if you like muliti-course meals.

    Sougo is such a unique concept in Tokyo - high brow vegetarian* temple food with a modern twist in a luxury setting. I am not a vegetarian but was interested in the concept, and I enjoyed every single dish of the largest set they offer. Standouts included the homemade plum wine, sesame tofu, radish & lotus root soup, the "winter garden", and the three desserts they offered - especially the persimmon sorbet! I left comfortably full - given that this is temple food, the concept is that you leave feeling healthfully full, not stuffed. That being said, if you are a Westerner, I recommend ordering the larger set. I was also extremely impressed by the diversity of the staff, and the attentiveness of the chef/owner. I saw five folks working the kitchen that night, including the chef, and two were women, and one was a foreign woman (I think French?)! I've never seen a foreign sous chef in a Japanese restaurant, and I have to imagine that this is a special apprenticeship for her, given the uniqueness of the restaurant concept. I'm very impressed that the chef would be open to such diversity on his team, and congratulate him on it! The chef was also very attentive, checking in on how I liked the meal (loved it!) and bowing me out. Will definitely come here next time I am in Tokyo! * Sougo is vegetarian by Japanese standards - the standard menu definitely contain fish stock. If you want a vegan set, you can call ahead 24 hours in advance and they will arrange.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Sougo. The food is mainly vegetarian, but they do use fish stock and fish flakes, so vegans or anyone with fish allergies needs to make a reservation in advance and let them know so they can make seaweed broth instead. We had a hard time finding it because it’s on the third floor, but it’s lovely inside and the service was good (though they don’t speak much English, so be sure to brush up on some basic Japanese first!).
