yummy! - Edit

Loved the paani puri and the tomyam rice. Devoured the Coconut Shake. Prices a little higher due to touristy location. Would definitely do back.

Pros: yummy, great staff, convenient location

Cons: spotty wifi

Cute Place but better around - Edit

Nice little cafe but they need to have more vegan options.. Other places around offer more. Portions could also be more generous.

Limited Options - Edit

It's located in the heart of Georgetown's tourist mile, where true vegetarian restaurants are difficult to find. However their options are somewhat limited and more targeted to tourists who want to have something different or who don't feel like eating local food. It cannot (and probably does not want to) compare with a full menu Chinese or Indian vegetarian restaurant. Interesting though as an alternative. Very slow service, so bring some time!

Cons: only a few options of vegetarian fusion food

Awesome food! - Edit

We stumbled‚Äč upon this vegetarian cafe on a visit to Penang and we were thrilled that we did. The food was totally fabulous, and the service was great. The owner was super welcoming and very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely return next time we are in Penang. Go check it out!!

Excellent food - Edit

It's a little cosy place situated below the Armenian Suite Hotel. The place is beautifully decorated and has some painting on the walls. The D Fungi Burger & vegetarian turkey ham is excellent! The Dahi Puri & Coconut Milkshake which was really good! The menu says that it takes 20 min for the food to be prepared. But it was all prepared in 10 min. They have Vegan and vegetarian cupcakes which are good! I'll visit it soon again!

Pros: Very enthusiastic team working together , They make sure the customer are satisfied , Promoting vegetarian food in a heritage area

Cons: More food should be added into the menu , Parking is an issue during day time. , Kitchen closes by 9

If vegan, stay clear - Edit

I do not like complaining about food or people or places. But. To spare someone from the same mistake - if you eat vegan, go to the nearby vegan Sushi cafe instead. This place is at the end of a hotel lobby. Was the only customer. Waited quite a while before I got someone's attention. Then, whilst being pressured to ordering (had barely had a chance to look at the menu) I asked what was vegan to smooth the social awkwardness. They said they can make the mushroom-o-something burger vegan. :) So far nice. I asked how. "We remove the cheese and the mayo." "And what's left then? Is there any salad to go with it?" "There is lettuce and pepper sauce." "Well, ok. Let's try. One burger please then". What arrived gets A for the effort to bring a decent Quorn type of burger to Gerogetown, and and F for everything else. :) What appeared was two honest thick slices of fungi-burger between a bun. And a mini-tad of lettuce. And. The top of the burger was literally cold. I pointed that out, it was taken to the kitchen, and I heard a bell. I suspect it was a microwave. "Did you also microwave the salad now?" "No, we heated the burger up." "Ok...". "I'm sorry, I will not eat this, but since I ordered it, I'm happy to pay." (I was hoping for a return politeness, which did not compute). So I paid, to support a vegetarian place in their efforts, and to not be arrogant, and asked for the thing for takeway. I tasted it on my way to the vegan Sushi place nearby - the bread had deflated (indicating potential microwaving of the fluffy bread). The flavoring of the sauces was nice, but what was left is very nearly not food :). I suppose if one is a lacto-ovo vegetarian, it goes smoother there. I visited a number of Georgetown's vegan and vegetarian places and this one I would not go back there.
