Shame because looks like they had really good vegan food. And very good reviews. Massively dissapointed. Place is now a bar called scissor sisters. We ate at roast and bake about 2 minutes up the road. Had vegan pasta aglio olio which was delicious!

I came here at 5.30pm (after checking opening times online) and it was closed. Went next door to the Junk Cafe instead!

Good service and staff friendly. Soothing atmosphere and feel very relaxing. Rini the masseur is strong for my huge body. She is young but experience. I will recommend this place is a must go if you are in Georgetown.

After reading the reviews on here we decided to seek out this place only to find it apparently closed down. Difficult to say if it's for refurbishment or for good but just wanted to flag this up

This was a great place for friendly beers and fun through the day and the early evening but is now only open from midnight as a nightclub.

We had ordered a vegetarian burger with fries and spaghetti aglio e olio, the latter explicitly not spicy (which we were told was possible). The good: - The fries have been delicious. The bad: - The spaghetti have been absolutely spicy. After complaining, we were...More

Hello lovely visitors of George Town! We are a small funky cafe/restaurant/ bar serving burgers, vegan and vegetarian food, chili bowls, tacos, pasta and other western foods. Our pace has a great vibe and friendly staff who are always up for a chat, a drink and a laugh. Unfortunately our kitchen is tiny and only can fit one chef at a time and our storage space is limited so if we run out of something we sincerely apologize. And when busy there can be a bit of a wait. Also the party can get started at ynot so if you're looking for a candle lit quiet romantic dinner on some occasions ynot is not the place for you but it is guaranteed fun and reasonably priced imported foods. If you want cheap cheap when you're in George Town Penang and we have some of the best Indian and Chinese street food out there so feel free to enjoy everything that George Town has to offer. Come in and don't be shy and you will have a great time peace and love x
