great food - Edit

Went here a couple of times. Great food. They use meat substitutes, which sometimes freaks me out but defo not meat. They do seem to serve fish like lots of Asian veggie places. Seems really popular with locals, which is a good sign.

Fabulous - Edit

We discovered this little gem on our most recent trip to Penang and were kicking ourselves that we didn't find it sooner. We've just arrived in Penang again and it was our first port of call, which in itself says something! Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be open today (Tuesdays probably their day off) bit looking forward to eating there again tomorrow. The Nyonya and Taiwanese dishes are inspired, flavourful and a true delight. Loads of variety on the menu means you're unlikely to run out of options. Enjoy!

Pros: Huge menu, Great flavour profiles, Heritage building

Cons: none

One Of The Best - Edit

A chinese vegetarian restaurant serving delicous local and nyonya dishes. It's a great place for family and friends to dine in together. Food are served fast and fresh. Good and friendly service, especially from one of their humble owner Mr Lai.
There is a specially assigned private carpark opposite (behind Continental Bakery) for customers dining in any outlets at Nagore Square. Free 1 hour parking if you show them your receipt. Remember to validate the parking ticket at the restaurant you dined in.
A few must try dishes - Nyonya Assam Steamed Fish, Sambal Kangkung, Thai Style Abalone Mushroom, Fried Rice

Pros: Simply Delicious, Fast, Good Service

Cons: The Restaurant can be a bit hot sometimes

Amazing!!! - Edit

I have lived in Penang for over a year and just discovered this gem! This place is really wonderful. The best vegetarian restaurant I've tried yet here in Penang.

The location is really nice. We were there in the evening and sat outside and it was lovely. The restaurant is set in an old heritage house with great decor. Also, everything is very cleaned and well kept.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food arrived VERY fast. The prices are mid-ranged but worth it as the food quality is very high. They have a great menu with lots of photos so you know what you're getting!

If you're in the area, you have to check this place out! It's a hidden treasure and well worth the visit. I know I will be back again soon!!!

Pros: location , yummy food, friendly staff

Cons: busy street, hard to find parking

Great Chinese restuarant - Edit

A lovely Chinese restaurant with an extensive menu. There are lots of interesting dishes you won't have seen before, including both mock-meat and purely vegetable options. I had a delicious vegetable dish with lots of fresh greens and a bit of tofu that was just right. The atmosphere is peaceful with decorations like Chinese paintings and posters. The workers are friendly and the price is reasonable.

Pros: Interesting variety of Chinese dishes, Fresh and tasty

Just discovered another great place for vege meal! - Edit

First time there, tried out har kau siew mai, quite nice for a vegetarian & Char Koay teow.

Then second time tried out their very yummy vege fish..so soft.
Sambal with petai & ladies fingers, tofu with tau xi sauce & their rendang curry.

Love the atmosphere & food!

Fast in presenting the food & the staff friendly & apparently knows their food!
