“good, consistent, vegetarian friendly”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Me and my partner ate at Jaya a number of times while staying in Georgetown. We are both Vegetarians and didn't have a problem with too little to choose from!

Being 24 hours and nearby to our accommodation made it extremely convenient. I enjoyed sitting and enjoying the evening atmosphere later on in the night there

“Awesome Indian curry, the best roti ever!”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Pre-made food at the front is more than enough, no need to pickup the menu. Try their roti with sweet milk. It's the best in the world!

“Great food and excellent service.”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

This place is open 24 hrs and has really nice food. The menu is enormous an service is fast. If you are after roti chanai, chappati, nasi kandar and lassi drinks, this place is hard to beat.

“Great quick food.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Not knowing Penang at all we had wandered about a bit and when it staretd to rain decided to try Jaya. Staff were very helpful, it's not a flash place but it is very quick and the food was full of flavour and there is a huge choice of different dishes.

Great place if you can't decide which Hawker to buy from as there are plenty of Indian favorites here for anyone.

“good late night stop...”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Headed here after drinks at Soho for a bite to cap the night. Being a public holiday nothing much was open. End up being a surprising find as the food was good. We had capati rolls and butter cake which was awesome. Their murtabak is also worth a try but avoid the mutton soup. Way too oily. Their drinks are of decent quality and service was adequate. Price wise I would say normal for that area. Heard the nasi kandar isn't all that bad but too heavy so we never tried. Worth a stop when feeling peckish.
