Soothed my taste buds

Was searching for some authentic breakfast in little India while I was suggested that woodlands exists here in little India. We started gigging into the masala dosa and the poori with onion/potato curry. The chutneys were much better than what we found in other restaurants. My cravings were not... read more

I already had a very good experience at the Woodland Bengaluru so when I saw that there was one in Georgetown I decided that we should have lunch there, in fact we went there everyday for the five days of our visit to Penang. Not only the food is excellent but staff are always friendly, courteous, helpful and smiling (a... More

Went to Madras New Woodlands on my trip to penang, we went around 3 in the afternoon and looked at the menu the time constraint on the menu is the most absurd i have ever seen, you can only order certain dishes at certain time i.e 12:00 noon to 9:30pm for vegetable biryani etc or 12:00 noon to 9:45pm paneer...

I got the aloo palak and thought it was just okay compared to other places that I have gotten it. I also didn't really care for the naan. However, my friends, who are regulars, all got the masala dosa, which looked great. It's what they usually order, so I would recommend that. Service was okay.

Being Indian myself, it was honestly a disappointment when it came to the quality of food. My 81 year old father is a die hard for authentic Indian cuisine and he rated the food as nothing extraordinary in taste. Crammed experience. If not for the air-con, I would have chosen to eat elsewhere. No big deal. Service is just okay.... More

You will find so many things to try ! That's the kind of vegetarian restaurant you'd wish to find in every city ! Lot of snack and meals. The food is really tasty and very good portion. Already planing to go back to try something else.
