I have been here twice and their Nasi lemak is brilliant and so is their satay (the sauce is to die for!).
they also do mock meat dishes and i tasted their mock-prawns (which was great, although im not a great fan of mock meat)

Will definitely recommend.

Pros: Delicious food, lots of variety
Cons: too oily

Nice cozy restaurant near Komtar

The restaurant is located at the junction of Jalan Macalister and Lorong Macalister near Komtar. It has traditional Chinese vegetarian food (much of it named
after traditional dishes) and also some specials like
Mango Sushi. The staff is friendly and helped with filling
out the order form (what one is normally supposed to do
oneself). Usually closed on Tuesdays, they make an exception on the public holidays falling onto this weekday like 1 Jan 2013.

Pros: Nice food, Many traditional dishes, Friendly staff

Have driven down 3 times when they say they are supposed to be open and have been closed. Weird hours. Disappointing!!

Delicious food and superb value for money. A set meal can cost between RM6.8 to 9.80. It comes with rice, side vegetables, a bit of curry, your main and a small soup. They also have an a la carte menu.
The satay sticks were divine - the satay sauce was the best we tried while in Penang. Their laksa is really nice and it doesn't have coconut cream.
We also had freshly made soy bean milk (you can have it with of without sugar) and a mango juice.
The customer service is superb, I highly recommend it.
They do not use onion or garlic. They are closed on Tuesdays.

Pros: Yummy food, Excellent customer service, Value for money

We popped in for a quick snack.
Their satay was OK, but not the best.
However thier Hong Kong style Cha Su was amazing.

Fluorescent seaweed!

Posted on 09 / 27 / 2011

We placed our bets on this place for dinner this evening and unfortunately it was a poor decision. The food took nearly an hour to come out of an overworked and tiny kitchen, which we noticed was situated disturbingly close to the toilet. (One caveat re the slowness though is that it is vegetarian week here, so perhaps they are busier than usual.)

When the food did finally straggle out it was not up to our standards, so we left most of it and went home hungry.

The seaweed salad was the colour of artificial colouring - the brightest green we have ever seen... certainly not food, that's for sure (we were told it was from Taiwan). The sushi contained some pickles that sported some similarly dubious colours (the brightness of the yellow was quite distinct from the natural takuan colour). The seaweed and tofu soup was literally huge chunks of tofu floating in a clear and largely flavourless broth. Based on the standard of the other selections the word 'GMO' came to mind and we passed on that too. The sambal petai and sweet potato leaves in gravy both tasted relatively ok, but the beans in the sambal were very close to raw and we sensed both dishes were probably prepared using pre-made sauces. Having had a very negative experience recently in Penang in a similar situation (we got quite sick), we were feeling a bit conservative so we grazed a bit and moved on.

Service was friendly enough and they do appear to mean well. Special requests are taken, but the knowledge seemed to be lacking so getting a healthy meal there felt to be a case of drawing blood from stone.

Be aware that they use MSG based products here, so if you are sensitive to the stuff (as we are) make sure you make this very clear when ordering.

Pros: friendly staff
Cons: chemically altered food, very slow

One of the best meals we've had in ages! Restaurant a bit basic but who cares when the food is this good?

Pros: Food, Nice staff, price
Cons: chairs, lighting, decor
