Great food and great staff

Photos of all dishes are pinned on the wall. The owner took time to explain the dishes and ingredients. Small place, it was not very crowded when we were there. No buffet, only a la carte. The dishes were really tastfull!

Pros: 100% vegetarian

Very good food for a very good price. It got quite busy so one of the waitresses seemed a bit stressed and short with us, but the food was delicious and the owner super-friendly. The same owner owns the lunchtime restaurant just around the corner (I highly recommend that one too!)

Pros: Good food, Cheap

Visited in dec 2019. Quaint little shop offering a good selection of veggie dishes. Tried their asam laksa, fried oyster omelette and some small dishes. Staff were very friendly and would explain and recommend dishes to try.

Pros: Good selection, Very affordable, Friendly staff

Sooo sad that we went there our last day!!! Food is incredibly cheap and so good! RM17 for 2 plates and one sharing plate. We ordered 2 noodles plates and one plate with some kind of samossas. Very tasty. And what about the owner?! She's so friendly and was always smiling.
TOTALLY recommend

Cons: No dessert available when we came

friendliest owner

oh my... i'm in love with this place and that's mainly because of the lady running the restaurant who was soo so sweet. she really cares about her customers and wants them to have the best food experience possible.

I can really recomment the Indian rice set, super yummy, well seasoned and the veggies are not overcooked. yum!

the crispy springrolls are nice as well, but quite greasy.

If I come back to Penang, I'd go back here in a heartbeat!

Pros: yummy vegan food, cheap, suuupernice staff

Nice little place, loads of options

Wasn’t a buffet anymore when I went. Nothing has egg or milk unless you ask for egg (it’s possible to add). Owner really nice and greeted me and explained the daily specials. I got the laksa, which was a daily special and some crispy spring rolls. Very affordable (by western standards). I didn’t know what a lot of the menu was so hope to come back and experiment more! Also they have freakishly fast WiFi for Penang, although it’d be a weird place to work lol. I got 19.9 down, 21 up!

I got kind of difficulties to find according to the location - so I am adding a more accurate picture of the location. The restaurant is in front of little (night) food corner.
The restaurant has special meals everyday as well as a la cart dishes.
The stuff is very kind and helpful, explaining what to expect behind some of the names, as well as recommend you some based on your taste. The variety makes it diffocult to choose just one dish, especially if you're alone.
The food is was very delicious - Indonesian rice set. This place made me regret that I was leaving Georgetown too soon.
Absolutely recommend.
