My wife is a host for a cooking show and she has very picky taste - no MSG and no fast food. I brought her to Ukishima, she loved the food so much that she had to go back on the last day of our trip, ordered as much food as she could to stuff herself haha. For me (as... More

The interior was nice, the garden lovely. Thats about all the positive things I have to say about this place. It was so incredibly overpriced considering all you ate was tiny portions of vegetables. The food was alright, nothing amazing. I would highly suggest going to Mana and Cafe Nifferia in Naha instead for really tasty vegan food!

Ukishima Garden is absolutely fantastic. A must-go place if you're vegetarians/vegans in Naha and an excellent choice if you're omnivorous who don't mind eating in a vegan restaurant. We came here for lunch. The food was delicious and served in a beautiful way (I've added a picture of the main I took, stir-fried vegs). The price was competitive and it... More

The restaurant were served by two young and friendly waitress and the foods were prepared by two young and creative chefs. The backyard garden comforts and refreshes the mind of dinners to get ready for the upcoming feast. Advanced reservation is recommended.

Lunch from 850 yen onwards. Dinner is minimum 2500 yen onwards hence quite pricey. Food are organic and very delicious. Location is quiet but 3 min walk from matsuo, at kokusai dori. Opens daily but close between 4pm to 6 pm. Vege dishes have onions/garlics but may ask which dishes dont have these. There is a nice garden behind the... More

It is very difficult to find vegetarian restaurants here. This is centrally located, just 3 mins walk from main Kokusaidori Street. Food is excellent.

Looking for something specifically vegetarian in Naha or just a little tired of the ubiquitous Okinawan pork, then this place is it! A delicious eclectic mix of Mediterranean and Japanese, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was fantastic, and the atmosphere was very welcoming. Ate there twice during our short stay in Naha and would highly recommend... More
