“The real vegetarian place- Almost Jain!”

Xin An Vegetarian Cafe
Ranked #30 of 45 Restaurants in Kuah
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 June 2016

1. Service- Great service, means business, happy to customise and suggest their specials for vegetarians.
2. Taste- Considering that in a Chinese neighbourhood , you have a chinese restaurant which is doling out pure veg meals, you can compromise on taste- or you would be ok with that, but the testimony to their taste was a second visit to this place! all the veggie family members loved it.
3. Ambience- Matches the price, they don't overcharge you and thus they don't splurge you on ambience, its a regular restaurant. So don't expect fancy bone china or crystal glasses.
4. Authenticity- Its authentic Chinese and yes most certainly authentic vegetarian

Must try is their spring rolls!

There are only 2 places offering Chinese vegetarian food in Langkawi and this place is one of them. Located at Kuah town near Langkawi Parade shopping mall and it is one of those low rise shophouses along the road. It opens from 1030 am with a short break from 3pm to 6pm until 9pm. Distance from Pantai Cenang is more than 10km.

Food !! Glorious food !!
hmm, where to start. Lots of Indians go abroad and the look for 'Indian-Pure-Veg- Food'. When I am abroad, I generally like to try different palates. I am a Chinese food buff and this time, when I visited Malaysia this time, I thought why not try local dishes.

Xin An is one such place which was in my bucket (yeah, I put these under list-of-things-to-do. And and ...... I am happy that I 'hunted' for this little eatery.

I visited one evening and it was closed. Yes its a family owned restaurant, hence can be little non-punctual. I did not give up...........visited again next day afternoon, after Mangrove tour and to my luck, I found it open. (hmm maybe the owners luck that I am putting them on the TripAdvisor listing).

About the Food.
They serve Malay, Chinese and fast food. In Chinese, some of the nice dishes to try would be hot & sour soup, mixed vegetables etc. They don't use onions or even garlic in the preparations.

Its a buffet, one needs to pick up a plate, fill it up with food which are on a hot burner. Not many varieties, but most of the items are 'inviting' and worth checking out. Once you fill up the plate, the lady at the counter will make a note of the 'probable cost'. I found the food very very tasty besides quite economical.

Its an very neat & clean, air conditioned atmosphere. Good relief after a hot weather and after some tours & shopping.

How to reach: Google it.
Its in Kuah Town, near to Bella Vista Hotel.. Call them on +60 4-966 8133

Anyone liking the Chinese food will love it. Do go for it, give yourself a chance to taste a meatless meal.

And Vegetarian people, you do not have much choice in Langkawi. This is a Pure Vegetarian food. Have food here and and remember like 'yeah @ Langkawi, we visited Cable Car, toured the Mangroves and had food at Xin An..................
