I have lived in Penang for over a year and just discovered this gem! This place is really wonderful. The best vegetarian restaurant I've tried yet here in Penang.

The location is really nice. We were there in the evening and sat outside and it was lovely. The restaurant is set in an old heritage house with great decor. Also, everything is very cleaned and well kept.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food arrived VERY fast. The prices are mid-ranged but worth it as the food quality is very high. They have a great menu with lots of photos so you know what you're getting!

If you're in the area, you have to check this place out! It's a hidden treasure and well worth the visit. I know I will be back again soon!!!

Pros: location , yummy food, friendly staff
Cons: busy street, hard to find parking

A lovely Chinese restaurant with an extensive menu. There are lots of interesting dishes you won't have seen before, including both mock-meat and purely vegetable options. I had a delicious vegetable dish with lots of fresh greens and a bit of tofu that was just right. The atmosphere is peaceful with decorations like Chinese paintings and posters. The workers are friendly and the price is reasonable.

Pros: Interesting variety of Chinese dishes, Fresh and tasty

First time there, tried out har kau siew mai, quite nice for a vegetarian & Char Koay teow.

Then second time tried out their very yummy vege soft.
Sambal with petai & ladies fingers, tofu with tau xi sauce & their rendang curry.

Love the atmosphere & food!

Fast in presenting the food & the staff friendly & apparently knows their food!
