Nothing Fantastic.
Submitted Saturday, November 22, 2008 - 12:27am [Dine in]

I first went here 2 years ago, and was so disappointed. I went again recently, as some friends suggested it as a good place to have a meeting.

I had the same disappointments as I did 2 years ago. It's overpriced, the food isn't that great - but I will admit that the miso tofu, kofta balls and rice pudding were quite good. All of the other items I tried weren't that great, and I could probably do a better job of cooking them myself, at home.

I decided to have the rice pudding for dessert as the pies all looked so old and unappealing. My friend tried the blueberry pie and he said it wasn't very good.

It's probably a good place for a meeting, as they have large tables, and it's quiet in there.

Enjoyed a nice lunch here.
Submitted Thursday, March 20, 2008 - 12:15am [Dine in]

We visited here for the first time today for a late lunch.

The restaurant was clean and tidy with nice decor. The servers were friendly and the food was served in a timely manner.

As a vegan, I was pleased to find that (after double checking) the vegetarian combo was something I could enjoy. No eggs, no dairy, no shrimp paste or any other animal product.

The Acar Awar was nice, as were the veggie spring rolls. The coconut rice was awesome! Unfortunately the Sayur Kari wasn't that great. The Sayur Lemak from The Banana Leaf beats the Tropika Sayur Kari by far!

I also had the Pulut Hitam for dessert and it was divine. I'm actually craving another one right now lol.

Anyway, we'd go back there again. The prices were reasonable, the service friendly and the food, for the most part, was pretty good.

Inconsistent
Submitted Wednesday, January 23, 2008 - 1:29am [Dine in]

I've been here a few times and find that the quality of the food and service can be inconsistent.

I like to order the channa masala and I guess they don't follow set instructions for its preparation. Sometimes I order it and it's a fairly runny-type curry consistency and sometimes it's quite thick and dry and a lot spicier.

I do like to go here though, rather than Baba Sweets a few stores up, as Shagun Sweets is completely vegetarian with no meat on the premises.

I was suprised to find that they don't sell rice to go with their curries.

The service is sometimes friendly and sometimes not so friendly.

There are a few tables for people to eat-in if they want to, but I would only ever order take-out from here.

Great Vegetarian Menu
Submitted Wednesday, January 16, 2008 - 1:11am [Dine in]

After phoning the restaurant to confirm that their veggie menu had many items suitable for vegans, my partner and I went their for dinner on a Tuesday evening.

It's a small restaurant and looks like it's either new, or been refurbished recently. There's nice fresh paint on the walls, new looking flooring and new, clean bathrooms.

We ordered exclusively from the vegetarian menu and found the food to be quite good - with our favourites being the fried spicy green beans and the braised tofu and chinese mushrooms. The veggie dumplings were also nice. The deep fried wontons were just "ok" and so were the faux meat dishes. We had the lemon "chicken" and the sweet & sour "pork".

The waitress was very friendly and knew what vegan meant. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to go there again (it's quite far from where we live), but if I lived in that neighbourhood, I'd definately be going there again.

I like it here.
Submitted Sunday, December 16, 2007 - 11:03pm [Dine in]

I've been here twice now and have really enjoyed my meals on both visits. The curries are so tasty.....we have them medium/mild and they have just the right amount of spice....not too hot.

Both times we have been for dinner during the week. The first time, the restaurant was almost packed, the second time, just a few tables were occupied. I never found it to be too loud and their Indian style/piano music adds a nice touch to the atmosphere.

The service could be a little better, but really it's nothing worth complaining about.

My only big wish is that there were some vegan desserts on the menu!!

Won't be going back here again.

What a disappointment! Firstly we wanted to order the satay platter to share but were told that it wasn't available that night. My partner then wanted to order a Stella Artois beer, and we were told the keg was empty. I ordered the veggie burger, minus the cheese and mayo and it was really disappointing - a portobello mushroom grilled and put in a bun with a bit of lettuce. I have to admit that the sweet potato fries were good though. My partner's party paella was very small and hardly filling at all. We didn't waste our time with dessert (nothing vegan on the dessert menu anyway), so we went to the Naam for some coffees and cake.

The service was nice - the waitress was friendly. We went on a Tuesday evening, so it was fairly quiet and not noisy at all.

Overall this place was a big disappointment and we won't be wasting time or money going back.

Good Selection
Submitted Tuesday, November 14, 2006 - 12:10pm [Dine in]

I tried this restaurant for the first time last night. Overall, I was impressed :)

I don't think I've ever been in a situation before, where I've had so many vegan options to choose from, from the one menu. The lady working there explained to me that only the "ham" contained whey and that everything else was vegan. BUT the "ham" used for the BBQ ham skewer appetiser did not contain whey. So I believed her, and ordered the BBQ "ham" skewer and also the Vietnamese Crepe.

I ate one of the skewers, and brought the other one home. I found it tasty and it would probably taste nice as a cold snack the next day.

The Vietnamese Crepe was VERY impressive!! Not too oily, very tasty and nice fresh lettuce leaves to wrap the crepe in. It's a very big serving and would probably more appropriate for 2 people to share, but nevertheless, I was able to bring the leftovers home.

The hours of the restaurant are 11am till 9pm. I arrived around 7.30pm and I think they were ready to close by 8pm, as the lady in the kitchen stopped cooking and went to sleep under the front counter. I felt kind of hurried to finish my meal and leave.

Anyway, I will definately go back because there's plenty more things on the menu that I would like to try! And the prices are very good too.

Oh and I brought home a piece of Chi cake for desert :)
