We have enjoyed our dining here quite a few times till lately, when we realized that times are changing. The waiter limited my vegetables on my banana leaf, the curries were cold and the mutton is always inconsistent. It's also unfortunate that we noticed that the waiters preferred serving Caucasian patrons though we waited & called for them repeatedly (even... More

We had breakfast and lunch here. It was the best food in Tanjung Bungah and nearly the only vegetarian option. The banana leaf lunch was amazing. Really worth a visit with very friendly staff and efficient service. Very clean. Great fresh juices as well.

We had our lunch at this restaurant during our visit to Penang. The restaurant has good variety on the menu for vegetarian and non-veg as well. Food was tasty. However service was a bit slow as the place was crowded at noon and there is no proper car park space allocation. Operating hours 7am till 12midnight

Four of us ate a hearty South Indian breakfast/brunch for $2.50USD per person!! We had two orders of idly, four dosai, a small bowl of chicken curry, four hot drinks and a bottle of mineral water. You can bet on future trips to Penang eating here will be on our must-do list. Highly recommend for anyone who loves idly and... More

The food was not great, cold even though we ordered Ala cart like Masala Dosa, Idli etc. the stalls were bit confusing, which is veg, which is non veg, and what do they have. It seemed bit laid back. The sitting place was ordinary, though the ambiance was bit better.

What can I say, I am a coffee fan, to say the least. When I was introduced to Madras coffee, I was eager to try it. I ordered hot Madras coffee with cow's milk. To drink it was an experience. I had to mix coffee and milk on my own as they were served separately. Taste? Loved it. Then, chicken... More
