10/10 food

Amazing food, some of the best veg meals in Malaysia I’ve had. Lots of different options from soups, rice and noodles. Completely veg and affordable. Staff are lovely and the place is spotless with a very calm atmosphere.

Great place

We came here a lot as our accommodation was just over the road. All of the food and drinks were great and it had a nice atmosphere. The rendang curry with lions man mushrooms was probably our favourite dish

Visited the restaurant on two consecutive days! Worth the visit.

The foods are really tasty and delicious! I visited the place on two consecutive days, trying on different dishes.
A must to visit when you are in Malacca!

Food is nice but not very authentic western as I was craving western food. Everything is also slightly sweet for some reason.

Nice place but food partly lacks of flavour

The spot is furnished with an eye for details in a modern way. The seats could be bit cozier, though 😀

All in all the food is good but it didnt quite meet our tastes: The curry had a special, almost fishy flavour (which we met several times in Malysia, so I guess it is a local sort of curry). The quality itself was good, just not our taste.

Nasi Briyani was great. Absolutely nothing to complain.

At our second visit the Spicy Fried Spaghetti as well as the Taiwanese Noodle lacked on flavour, esp. salt. The pasta was only spicy and oily, the noodles also missing the last kick. Dont get me wrong, the food was good - just not great.

Prices are bit higher than in the other restaurant next door and the flavours - I guess - more local.

But the partly lack of flavour and the higher prices dont allow me to rate 5 stars.

Still, worth a visit. Visit this one and Lutan 21 and decide for yourself what meets more your taste. 😉

A must try

Definitely one of the few restaurants in town serving top quality flavors. Tried the vegetarian rendang and was quite impressed with the portion and taste of it. Welcoming atmosphere, good service, and is very new inside.

Pros: Rendang, Nice environment

Cons: Nuts in a lot of foods

Little Gem that was literally a 2 minute walk from my hotel - couldn’t be happier.

Had a Mocha, the Rendang curry, and a side of Satay.

Favourite place

The cafe is nice, cosy with great ambience. The staff are very friendly, efficient and attentive. Food is great, love it! I would request to exclude egg/dairy products. My fav is their nasi lemak and monkey head mushroom rendang rice.

Pros: Various options, affordable

Cons: Nasi lemak only during weekends

Amazing food.

Not everything is vegan, but you can easily ask for them to not add the egg in.

Everything is delicious and very high quality, especially for the price!

Pros: Great vegan mains, Awesome sides, Great health drinks

Cons: Milk / eggs in a few dishes, so not fully vegan

Good but looks more impressive than it is

Looking from the outside, with the huge sign and natural-themed decor, you'd expect an amazing place to eat. It is good but not something you'd particularly remember. The menu does not have much on it compared to similar restaurants and whilst everything is tasty enough, it just wasn't amazing. The place is definitely suited for spending a long time in, enjoying some of the tea collection. Bit too quiet and relaxed to feel comfortable when eating with your young family!

Pros: Big noodle dish portions, Tea was nice, Pleasant and well-themed decor

Cons: Didn't feel overly family-friendly, Small amount of menu items, Slightly oversells itself
