The New Woodlands has an extensive menu but the South Indian set lunches are tremendous. Very ample servings, tasty food and quick service. One of the best meals I had in Malaysia.

Loved this restaurant. Ate here most nights during our stay in Georgetown. I actually preferred the food on the menu instead of eating the cheaper buffet options. The desserts are delicious too, a must try.
