This place "creates" amazing vegetarian Indian cuisine. The variety of dishes is astounding and at the same time, extremely cheap. If you go there, try the vegetable samosas with accompanying sambals. Be warned however, that the menu is limited to what time of the day you are there, and is almost impossible to understand. Well worthwhile getting a staff member... More

At first we were a little hesitant due to the exterior of the restaurant, but boy are we glad we ate here. The food is absolutely amazing and authentic (we went back a couple times!). Service was average and a little slow, but the food definitely made up for it. Try their desserts for sure!

Not the best food I ever had, but definitely good and affordable food! Clean place, but bring a sweater: the airco is set on 'refrigerator-mode'. Worth a visit if you don't want to spend to much money on some proper Indian food!

Woodlands is among the best Indian vegetarian restaurant in Penang. Situated on Penang St, the restaurant can easily be missed as it has a discreet entrance. On the same row, are many Indian restaurants as well. It serves mouth watering thosai, rawa, idly as well as complete veg set meals for breakfast (8am -12.00), lunch and dinner. We had paper... More

This is known for tasty paper roast dosai and its sambar. Best place for south Indian Food. Even North Indian foods Nan and Fried rice are very good. If you are from India, you will love the fried rice here as most of the other Indian restaurants in Penang serve only Nasi Goreng(Malaysian Fried Rice). The Rice in the south... More

I had the fried mushrooms and the naan style bread with the mint pressed in it (begins with a 'p'). It was pretty good. I heard from other travelers that it was the place to get good vegetarian meals at reasonable prices. I took off one star because the waiter did not put my order in right away. Another much... More
