“A real Gem of Vegetarian food.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I was looking for a different type of vegetarian food in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya and was recommended to this restaurant by a friend.
I have been to this place twice in two weeks! and was not disappointed at all. This unassuming restaurant is in a row of shop houses with fairly basic decor, not much to talk about.
The dishes were quite different from most Chinese type vegetarian restaurants where many of the dishes served were made from gluten base food .We were told by the manager Liang, that most of the dishes were made form various types of mushrooms, and they were most delicious.
One of the orders of food came served in a boat shape dish with vegetables cooked in a number of different ways, satays made from big chunks of thick mushroom, deep fried lotus roots which were very crispy and which also came with different sauces.This order came with about seven different types of beautifuly prepared vegetables,one of which was a yam basket filled with fresh and juicy mange-tout beans and the yam basket tasted real "yammy". Another dish which was very nice was the steam fish( made from tofu) with ginger sauce and the combination was excellent, the ginger was not too overpowering and really complimented the delicate tofu fish.
One of my favourite dishes was the eggplant deep fried and accompanied with a sweet caramelized sauce and dried chillies and tasted wonderful, a must try.
The lamb curry served with mantoa (fried bread) not too special ,available from other vegetarian restaurants. Organic brown rice was available, we had fried mee suah (a type of rice noodles) and it came very well prepared and not soggy and oily, but with lots of crispy beansprouts and diferent vegetables.
We had quite a number of other dishes and all were very tasty and well prepared.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food and will definitely be visiting the place again.
The restaurant had a varied menu and they also served pizza which looked very good but we did not try.
They also served a hot fruit tea with honey and we also enjoyed this drink .
If possible, ask for Liang to recommend the dishes as the waitors and waitresses are not too fluent with the English language.
