Love the food at Zhu Yuan. It's been around for several years and is not just one of the many "in restaurants" which are opening up all over Georgetown. The selection of vegetarian food is huge and all the dishes we have had so far were great and good tasting. The food is also prepared fresh, so you have to wait a little, but it is not from a counter where food sits for a long time.

You leave this restaurant feeling so happy & satisfied as the food is nourishing & clean. My favourite Penang restaurant that i went to daily so i could try the specials. The sunday laksa was the best laksa I've ever tasted. Tuesday & friday is a different set meal that includes soup & a sweet. Also as much free tea as you can drink. Monday is closed.

We had dinner here last night. While the food was good, service was slow. We ordered an assortment of dishes and waited nearly an hour before we were served. Food was not salty or overly flavoured and well prepared. However be prepared for a long wait if there are tables ahead of you. Reasonably priced but portions were quite small. There were five of us and we only had one helping each of every dish. We did enjoy our meal and will be back.

Amazing food and friendly hospitality. The owner makes you feel like your are her personal guest dining in her home. Food tasted amazing and was very interesting. Host provided information and background information for all dishes. Excellent value for money.

We visited the restaurant close to 8.30pm from Singapore standards Penang is almost a ghost town except for few places during weekdays. The owners were having there meals as they didn't expect any other customer. We entered unexpectedly late and little skeptical. But after the food was served we found worth taking pain to find this place for our dinner. Ordered sambal fish which was tangy with log of unusual lady finger inside. Mixed vegetable curry mild flavour and spicy prawn. Enjoyed the food, a little more effort to change the ambiance could make the experience amazing for diners. Will return back to try hotpot next time.
