Beware of prices - Edit

Sausages, for example, cost RM.9 each although they are pretty small. Vegetables are RM1 each kind (regardless of amount) so you probably don't want to try them all, stick to one or too. Then other stuff is even more expensive but still per dish and regardless of amount so again, do try to try everything, load up with one or two dishes. When eating with someone you might want to help more of everything but in different plates and then share, that way it'll be inexpensive (doing exactly the opposite, trying to try everything and loading it into two plates we've somehow managed to spend more than RM20 there!).

Otherwise OK, a lot of vegan options. A good place to grab a bite after visiting amusement park or shopping, but probably not the kind of place to go on purpose.

Pros: good location, tasty

Cons: pricing per item, not by amount, it's a food court in a mall

Lot of options, food court was not so clean - Edit

I was here in september 2012 (in the basement). I did not eat here, because I already had eaten and just want to check how the place looked because I might wanted to come back.
I did not go back for 2 reasons:
- the food court itself was not so clean, there was food and napkins everywhere on the floor.
- it looked like the food might have been there the whole day, it was a buffet but it was not covered up, I did not find this really hygienic. And there were a lot of other vegetarian options close by. But I did not taste the food, so it maybe is very good.

I was there at 18.00 and there were still a lot of options, so it is not only a lunch place.

Happy with variety and price - Edit

On the 10th floor of the Times Square shopping complex I found a Vegetarian Corner. The food is pre-cooked like most of the cheaper food stalls in KL. My wife and I filled our plates with what ever looked good, with no rice. It cost 17.50 RM. I was very happy with the price and the food. It has the usual mock meat dishes and so has a range of flavours.

Pros: quick, tastes good

Cons: on 10 floor

good for lunch - Edit

VERY HANDY FOR A QUICK LUNCH. A BUFFET WHICJ HAS AN OPTION OF TWENTY ITEMS. VARITY OF MOCK DISHES, AND PLANTY OF TOFU AND VEG DISHES. FOOD WAS TASTY ENOUGH, BUT AS WITH A LOT OF BUFFET MEALS, MANY ITEMS WERE COLD(ALTHOUGH I'M NOT SURE IF SOME ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SERVED COLD). PRICES ARE PER ITEM. STARTING AT MYR1, OUR TOTAL MEAL FOR TWO WAS MYR16, ABOUT 3 QUID.

Pros: QUICK, tasty , nice staff

Cons: cold

Tasty and cheap - Edit

This is a good option for lunch. It is a stall on the 10th floor in the food court and offers good buffet food (economy rice) with plenty of choice when getting there before 1. It's the usual Malaysian veggie buffet fare with yummy sweet and sour tofu a good bet along with lovely fresh mushrooms. It's cheap for a shopping mall food court with a meal of tofu and two veg with a small soup on the side at between 5 and 7 rm, depending on quantity you put on the plate. It's thus great value for Times Square.
The negative is that, with many buffet economy rice stalls, if you get there later on, even mid afternoon, the food has been sitting there for a while and choices are less prevalent although it's still perfectly eatable and tasty. I have been there after work at about 6 before and still they've had a few dishes left. They offer to heat it up for you too.

Pros: Cheap for a shopping mall, excellent at lunch time, tasty

Cons: limited by mid to late afternoon

Beware of the prices for your selections - Edit

Patronise this stall a few days ago, coming up from Singapore with a group of friends. Indeed there are variety but it is more expensive compare to similiar joint like in Johore Baru.
Every month I cross over from Singapore to the southern state of Johore in Malaysia. At the prestigious City Square Complex there is a similiar Food Court. For 3 dishes plus white rice, normally I am charged between RM$4.50-5.00.
Here in KL's Berjaya Food Court, for 3 dishes plus white rice; I have to pay RM$10.50! Too EXPENSIVE for my experience since I am very familiar with Malaysian vege scene.

Pros: Air-con; clean & bright

Cons: Too Expensive

Varieties of Dishes but price is expensive - Edit

We drive to Kuala Lumpur (KL) from Singapore between 31-May-07 to 4-Jun-07. We are vegetarian, therefore, we always look out for places with convenient access to vegetarian food. This vegetarian stall is located at the Aircondition Food Court on Level 10 of Bejaya Times Square (BTS). When we were shopping at BTS, due to convenience, we patronised this stall at noon for lunch. The cook is a chinese female and the stall only sell vegetarian rice in buffet style with about 20 to 30 varieties of dishes. Great varieties! The reason why we call it in buffet style, when requested, the stall operator will provide you with a plate of plain rice, but you can choose totally by yourself the number of dishes you want and the quantity. The price you have to pay will depend on how many dishes you have chosen and the quantity you have taken. This is a norm in Malaysia. For 3 dishes plus the plain rice, we paid about Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) $5.80 with a bowl of soup, complimentary. It is consider expensive comparing when we eat at other non-aircondition food centre or shop, this will cost us only about MYR3.50 to MYR4.50. If not for convneient, as we were shopping under the same roof, I may not patronised. However, considering its great variety of dishes, such Curry Mutton, Curry Vegetables, Curry Fish, sweet and sour pork, (of course all vegetarian)and many tyoes of vegetables being cooked creatively. If you do not mind the price, you can still have a trial.
