- Sougo
Is owned by a michellin starred chef. May not be real Shojin Ryori but you can try kaiseki-style Shojin Ryori.

- Tera Cafe Daikanyama
I found this place pretty interesting. Tera means temple in Japanese so it's literally "Temple Cafe". There is a monk in this cafe visiting from temples instead of people visiting to temples. The monk will listen to customer's problems and try to help them by talking. Food served here are of course Shojin Ryori. 

- Jindaiji Temple Kashiwa Tei
This place might be the real Shojin Ryori restaurant. It's built by the famous temple Jindaiji Temple in Chofu. Visit the botanical garden in the area if you have a spare time. It's very big and beautiful.
