What is IKU?

Since opening our first plant-based eatery more than 35 years ago, IKU has nourished and healed our customers with simple plant-based meals that bring balance and vitality to their lives and taste buds. Our goal has always been to inspire and empower as many people as possible to eat well without harming the planet. 

Thanks to our innovative vision, delicious vegan dishes and the support of our community, we’ve stepped beyond the storefront to become an online delivery service that brings a whole new level of ease and accessibility to IKU.
