This is great for gluten free dining. I have Celiac disease and I was able to find several dishes on the menu that were safe. I had a mushroom and rice dish as well as summer rolls (pictured). It wasn't the best vegan food I've ever had or anything, but it was very safe for me and healthy. The juices... More

We came here for dinner to try something a little different and it was a great choice. I had the pumpkin pasta which was delicious and my partner had a dumpling soup. The staff are very friendly and there is a nice atmosphere in the small restaurant. They do close for a bit in the middle of the day but... More

Had dinner the other night. Food was really fresh. Only thing, it all tasted kind of the same. We had mixed rice, a salad and Vietnamese spring rolls and it all kind of tasted the same. Juices were really nice though.

My wife and I, both vegetarians, stayed in Penang for two weeks. We rented a place very close to Lebuh Penang. For the first two days, we ate in vegetarian restaurants on Lebuh Penang. Then we tried The Leaf on a friend’s recommendation, and we never looked back! It was like day and night. The Leaf was such a refreshing... More

Accidentally found this restaurant after walking around Little India. It's like an 'oasis' since most of the restaurants nearby are selling hot, spicy, oily foods. The signboard outside has attracted me in... 'No MSG, No Vegetarian Meat, No Artificial Colouring, No Preservatives'. They cooked using coconut/olive oil, brown sugar & rock salt, and no white rice. I ordered Ice Honey... More

The food was really tasty. My biggest complaint was that the menu was so extensive it was hard to choose what to get. The food was a real bargain and I'd recommend this place to anyone interested in sampling healthy meals from the region.

If you are in Penang for a short visit, definitely try this for great vegan options. My favourite was Spaghetti Bolognese, unfortunately it was chef's special and they don't have it any more. But if they ever introduce it - oh, do try! Now I am trying to discover what's my favourite dish from their common menu. I thought it... More

We enjoyed two lunches at this very busy little vegetarian restaurant. I especially loved the fresh salad with nuts. Delicious! The staff are polite & smiling. The restaurant, with the exception of the restroom, is clean & nicely cooled by ceiling fans.

We loved this little place. Once we found it, we just kept coming back! Great healthy and very fresh vegetarian food. Lovely quiet and well presented restaurant. Will certainly be regulars again on our return to George Town.

Healthy, fresh food and drinks. The explanations of health benefits on the menu are a nice touch. I enjoyed a juice and pumpkin pasta dish. Fair prices, helpful staff, thanks.
