Shizen is proud to be a fully vegan sushi bar and izakaya. We combine classic shojin and sushi techniques with local, seasonal ingredients to create healthy and flavorful dishes with a light footprint. Some of our most notable dishes include our nigiri, our specialty rolls, our ramen, and our robata items. We use mountain yam, konjac, soybean curd, and other vegan ingredients to replace conventional proteins throughout our menu.

The tomato nigiri is exquisite. Foursquare - September 2017

Beautiful presentation,extremely well balanced intriguing flavours and every dish surpasses the next. As a vegan or vegetarian the sudden plethora of choice is overwhelming, but you can't go wrong. Must try the surprise ending. Also a bevy of sake to accompany your delicious meal. Warning long queues to wait, but totally worth it. GooglePlace - August 2017

Really fantastic sushi. Definitely not somewhere you can just walk into and grab something quick -- I've never had a short wait here -- but I think the food is worth it. A lot of my friends are skeptical that vegan sushi can be good, but I'd encourage you to give Shizen a chance to change your mind! GooglePlace - August 2017

This place surpassed my expectations, even after reading all the raving reviews. There was a long wait (80 min), but they have a genius waiting system. I recommend to come 1,5 hour before you want to eat and place yourself on the waiting list so you won't starve. I tried the Brussel sprouts and Secret Weapon roll which were both delicious! A good choice if you like spicy food. GooglePlace - August 2017

I loved going out for sushi and having an entire menu of completely vegan options. The restaurant itself is beautiful, and they have all the typical rolls you know and love, but there's a whole page of unique, creative, delicious rolls that you won't find anywhere else. Its not a cheap meal, but it's a great experience GooglePlace - August 2017
