“A little out of the way but lovely vegetarian food”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

This restaurant was a little bit out of my way but well worth the walk. The staff were very welcoming and the menu is entirely vegetarian they just call their fake meat 'chicken'. I am a vegetarian of 10 years and ate and enjoyed a variety of 'chicken' based dishes. No the most wonderful of surroundings but the food is good

“Have I been to another place?”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Nothing to do with VEGETARIAN; in the menu there are some 3 or 4 vegi dishes. Rest is meat and fish.
Had a chicken red curry; not more than average.

“Excellent food and services.”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We went to the restaurant after reading the review at Tripadvisor. We order two set menus, which is great. Buffet and a la carte options is also available. The staff is helpful, and services is excellent. Highly recommended to other travelers to Penang.
