Worth a visit!

I'm surprised by the negative reviews of this place. I've been twice now and found it to be clean with helpful/friendly staff and most importantly tasty food! It was busy with locals both times that I went. I'll definitely be going back!

Pros: Clean, Good food, Cheap

Seems popular with the locals

Not sure if it was Saturday night that made the restaurant busy but busy it was. Usually, I eat all of the vegan food put before me but not on this occasion. We ordered three dishes but found the food cooked in too much oil and not particularly good.
Our server was pleasant and made sure the food was vegan. One big plus was that the restaurant was air conditioned.

Pros: Air conditioned, Helpful staff
Cons: Food was not great

typical indian food

Do not order fresh juice - it is half water.
Dosa (rice crepe) was great, chutneys not spicy.


Cons: cheating with juices

Awful!

2 Posted on 11 / 13 / 2011

Had a meal at Woodlands about a year ago & has to be said it wasn't great but eternally hopeful people that we are, thought we'd give it another go. Food awful, channa was under cooked, cold and no idea what they were trying to attempt with the sauce. The onion kulcha was well, not an onion kulcha and paneer dish consisted mainly of raw (but shouldn't have been) onions. Food got sent back and personally if you fancy a spot of pure veg indian, i'd nip just over the road, chaotic but much nicer


Cons: Awful food, indifferent service

Very average Indian place

3 Posted on 09 / 21 / 2011

Every taxi driver seems to know and recommend this place as soon as they hear you are vegetarian. We only tried their dosas and one curry but weren't exactly blown away. The dosas were quite oily and the sauces nothing special to speak of. The one curry we did order (chana masala) was pretty poor - so much so that it was left on the table uneaten. Can't see us racing back, even though it is one of only 2 pure veg indian restaurants that we are aware of in Penang.

One thing though - the colourful clientele made for an interesting setting, although judging by their reactions they were just as intrigued in us as we were in them ;)

Pros: All vegetarian, authentic indian vibe (from patrons)
Cons: Not all that tasty

First time here, May 2011

Found the restaurant while wandering through Little India, and entered. The food was good, low cost, and tasty (did I already say that). I can add pleasantly spicy. Recommended.

Pros: Taste, drinks, quick service
Cons: Not overly visible on the street.

Very disappointing

2 Posted on 01 / 14 / 2009

We were looking forward to our visit to this restaurant, but we came away disappointed. The food was average, at best. The vegetarian thali was truly nothing special, and the food had none of the spice necessary to bring it to life. We also ordered an aloo gobi that was greasy and lacking flavour. Finally, the juice was absolutely awful, essentially being water with colour. After our time in KL at the beautiful Bukit Woodlands, this unrelated imposter really lacked sizzle.

Woodlands Pani Puri

4 Posted on 10 / 17 / 2007

This would be one of the better veg restaurant. The only and quite good Pani Puri that I know of in Penang.
They have Pani Puri, Shev Puri, Bhel Puri and a few other snacks.

Pani Puri literally means Water in a Crispy Fried Dough. Pani is a Hindi word for Water, and Puri is somewhat like a 'fried chapati'.

Pros: tasty, hard to find elsewhere, decently priced
Cons: sometimes waiter not friendly
