Very flavorful

Posted on 09 / 25 / 2011

This is my go-to restaurant when I go to San Jose, so I've probably been here four or five times now. There are lots of vegetarian options, and the style of the food is great. Though it certainly depends on where you are, I don't think there are a lot of Malaysian restaurants in the US. Someone from Malaysia described Malaysian food to me as combining the best of Indian, Thai, and Chinese food, and I think that was a pretty good way to get me to go to a Malaysian restaurant and find out there is some truth to that!

The quality and presentation of the food here is very good, and everything I tried is very flavorful. I absolutely love the veggie gado-gado appetizer, which is an assortment of veggies and tofu (either raw or slightly steamed) with sort of a pineapple-y peanut sauce - the sauce makes the dish, but the veggies and tofu are very refreshing. There are a few other vegetarian appetizers, and there are over a dozen vegetarian entrees. I've been especially fond of the veggie pineapple entree. The sauce, veggies, and meat substitute are vibrant, and I love that they serve it in the hollowed-out pineapple half. Same with the veggie mango - sweet and spicy, and served in sort of a hollowed mango boat.

When I leave, I always feel "good full," like in a nourished-way, and I feel like there was something a little fun about the food.

I've give this place a five-cow rating if that were allowed for a non-vegetarian restaurant.

Pros: Vibrant food
