Tasty malaysian food - Edit

I tried the Nasi Lemak (Malaysian typical dish) and it was very tasty and good. Also tried a salar, the lemon coriander soup and the eggplant bruschetta which was also very well made. Recommended

Plenty of choice for vegans if you don’t mind asking - Edit

First time trying WTF (What Tasty Food) in Bangsar. The fully vegetarian menu states that vegan dishes can be prepared on request, and our waiter was excellent; he showed us all of the already vegan options, pointed out the dishes that could be easily veganised, and asked if there was anything else we wanted to try so he could see whether the kitchen could veganise it (we asked about the mushroom tikka masala and the answer was yes!). I was also thrilled to find out that many of the naan breads could be made vegan just by omitting the melted butter they usually coat them with.
We started with the dry vegetable munchurian; crispy fragrantly spiced veg balls coated in a soy, chilli, ginger and garlic sauce (so good!). Next we had a big old vegan feast consisting of daal tadka, mushroom tikka masala, aalu gobi (my fave), basmati rice, garlic naan and plain naan. Everything was tasty and not too spicy (not sure if they toned it down a bit for us deliberately...?), and we were additionally happy because (unlike many vegetarian restaurants here in KL) they serve beer, including kingfisher and corona if you’re after a vegan beer.

Pros: Tasty food!, Good service, lots of vegan options including beer

Cons: vegan options not labelled

Classy Indian Food - Edit

I don't agree with some of the previous reviews - or maybe they have improved since these. The food is mostly only Indian apart from a few burger options. The food here is much higher quality than the other average Indian restaurants around. There are a lot in Kuala Lumpur! This place really is a cut above. The food tasted amazing and they have so many unique options and the staff are knowledgeable about making dishes vegan. We really enjoyed it and didn't find it rushed or noisy at all. It was perfect for our last night on our trip to KL.

Pros: High quality and unique, Nice setting

Cons: Slightly pricey, Not completely vegan

Noisy atmosphere - Edit

Food was alright. I expected it to be better though. The place was too crowded and noisy. This is not a restaurant where you can sit down and have a peaceful or romantic meal. The good thing about this place is that the person serving me knew the difference between vegan and vegetarian. They have a good selection of vegan options on the menu. Most indian vegetarian restaurants use ghee, butter and milk and won't understand when you request for vegan.

great vegetarian menu - Edit

Good range of vegetarian dishes and a few which are vegan. Tasty, freshly prepared and helpful, well informed waiting staff. They had an amazing range of sweets (almost all made with carnation milk) in preparation for Diwali all made on the premises. Choice of beer and soft drinks. My friend declared the Masala chai delicious! It's located about 30 minutes from the Petronas Towers and is really reasonably priced too.

WTF - What Tasty Food, Kuala Lumpur - Edit

I had some enjoyable food here. Regrettably my memory is dominated by a massively over spiced thai salad. There was no warning given of its atomic powered spiciness. I was unable to finish this salad as was my co diner. I regret food going to waste

Pros: vegan friendly

Cons: massively over spiced thai salad

Great food, fantastic service, one of the best! - Edit

Discovered this place in May 2014 via Happy Cow. Extensive menu with perhaps the best veggie Indian food I have ever had. The guys really looked after us and great service is hard to find in KL. My bro lives is KL and isn't even veggie yet eats here regularly. I'm back for another visit and we had takeout last night. It was as good as the restaurant. Portions are huge so you get value for £. Highly recommended, love this place and wish we had one in the UK!

Indian restaurant with some Western &vegan options - Edit

If your motto in life is "CHEEESE!!! I must at least eat half a kilo of it every day " ... Then WTF might be just the right place for you. If you are vegan, however, or if you simply like to eat healthy food, then possibly not.

When I read the description, I got the impression that it is a restaurant with main,y Western style food. That is not the case. About 90 % of their menu is Indian, and they do have a few Western options. Burger, Pizza, cheese sandwich and some Mexican food. The common deniminator is that they are laden with either cheese, butter or ghee, reflecting the school of thought that is - unfortunataly - also often encountered in Vegetarian restaurants, that mankind can not survive without animal products :-(

However, their prices are much too high for average Indian food. Aloo mutter for RM 10 is ok, charging RM 2 for each single piece of chapatti on top of that, and RM 2 for a jug of ice water is rather steep, but asking RM 7 for a glass of Lemon Iced tea and RM 9 for a small mango lassi are too expensive IMO.

I went there with my non-vegan son, he ate one of the mini-pizzas (the second one was too much for him), I helped him with his fries and had the Aloo Mutter with some Chapattis. The lemon ice tea that I ordered without sugar was very sweet, so when I ordered another one, I specifically asked that no sugar at all be added. The drink I received tasted similar to normal Lipton's out of the can and the "normal" lemon ice tea that my son had ordered would probably have sent a diabetic person into a coma after the first sip. After the lunch, both my son and myself had indigestion, something that I, as a vegan, am simply not used to.

The redeeming factor of WTF is the friendliness of their personnel. The waiter explained which of their options were vegan, and when my son ordered a Mango lassi, he came back to check if that was really ok, as I had asked specifically for no dairy in the food (and lassi is made of yoghurt).

Nevertheless, with only average food and above average prices, this is clearly not sufficient for a better rating.

Pros: Friendly staff, Taste ok

Cons: Prices very high for what they offer, Few vegan options, Food definitely not healthy
