WELL DONE - Edit

I HAD A SET MEAL LAST NIGHT HERE AND IT CAME WITH A WELL SEASONAL OIL RICE AND A PIECE CHAPATI ACCOMPANIED WITH 3 KIND OF SPICED VEGETABLE AND BEAN COURSES .BESIDE,THERE WERE 2 DIFFER KIND OF GRAVY,ONE WAS SWEET AND THE OTHER WAS SOUR YA , A SWEET WHITE MILK DESSERT TOO..
EVERYTHING CAME IN A SMALL PORTION SERVED IN A METAL LITTLE POT BUT THE TASTE WAS DEFINITELY POWER ENOUGH FOR U TO GO WITH RICE AND ROTI .

Pros: POWERFUL TASTE

Cons: LOCATION

Best indian in Penang - Edit

We 'discovered' this place on our last day in Penang and are kicking ourselves that we didn't find it earlier! From the HC description (which I will edit now) it sounded as though food was only available on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but it seems they are open every day except Mondays, for all three meals.

We attended the Saturday lunch buffet, which is situated in a lovely garden environment. The vibe is peaceful and compassionate. The selection of food is not huge but plenty enough to keep you interested. The chana masala in particular was the best we've tasted in ages, but everything was nice. Since it is vegetarian festival time there were more Chinese there than usual and to make the food suitable for them apparently they are cooking without garlic and onion for the next 9 days.

From the reaction we got when we paid for our food I got the impression we paid more than most, but it was still worth every ringitt. The service here was also friendly - they called us a taxi and chatted to us as we waited for it. Which reminds me - it is in a quiet residential area, so best to ask them to call a taxi for you when you're done (unless you have your own means of transport).

Looking forward to visiting the one in KL too.

Pros: al fresco dining, fresh and well spiced, great food and friendly service

Cons: residential area

Its great - just try it! - Edit

Amazing place with the great Indian / Malaysia vegetarian food. Run mainly by volunteers and & aims to provide quality food which is accessible to all; hence the 'eat as you like, pay as you want' concept which is remarkable for the ambiance and size of the place. Recently expanded with much more seating so you don't have to wait for a table anymore.

Definitely worth going out of the way to try this place - the menu changes daily with a very wide variety so you can go everyday of the week to look forward to something new. Highly recommended.

Pros: Fantastic Food, Cool open-air seating area, Amazing concept

Cons: None
