I visited, and I found out the potion is small & over price . Simple ingredients and simple way of cooking noodles, charged at double price from the market. Parking is not so easy! The place is very clean and suitable for kids

What is it about vegetarians that seem happy and friendly. The staff here are super friendly and helpful. The food is really tasty and creative. As I am not a vegetarian, I worry as some vegetarian restaurants that flavour is lost when meat or fish is removed. The laksa here is delicious, flavourful and a really enjoyable meal. The vegetarian... More

This is the place to go if you are on a vegetarian or gluten free diet and do not mind paying a little bit extra for your meal. There are plenty of choices to choose from. The aloe vera dessert with chia seeds and goji berries is a must try. You may also choose to sit outside the air conditioned... More

I go to this place every now and then for their rendang and pumpkin oats dish. I find those the best. There are many good cheaper vegetarian places but they might not be organic and the parking might also not be as convenient. The staff are always friendly and ready to explain. Their menu is a bit tricky. First you... More

We had pumpkin soup noodles. Generous portion. Very thick and creamy gravy. Taste delish for the first few spoonful. Taste more and more like deserts working through the end of it. The bowl wasn't pre-heated. Cold when half way through. Weird they call it pumpkin Laksa. No spicy kick at all. Do ask for some chilli padi. Bagus Teh (Vegetarian... More

First of all, take a taxi! Its cheap and you won't regret it if you do. The food is always delicious and they are original and innovative in their preparation of it. The drinks/mixes are so good, and good for you, that you won't mind that there is no wine on the menu. (There is a Belgium restaurant next door... More

If it was not for my local friend, who found out about this restaurant, we certainly would not go so far from the center to eat. But it was a very nice evening, trying different vegan dishes, which is always difficult to come by in my experience. Selection is overwhelming, the prices are moderate.
