Organic Leaf is a vegetarian restaurant dedicated to bringing healthy organic food to their patrons. Chinese-style vegetarian dishes using organic and natural ingredients is the core of Organic Leaf’s identity. Located in Section 17, Petaling Jaya, it is one of the few vegetarian restaurants that offers quality organic food in the area.
Interior – 2.5/5
Organic Leaf’s interior is simple and basic. They use fuss-free dining sets, and minimal decor. As both a customer and waiter, both parties will experience a tight squeeze in between back-to-back chairs, as the tables are placed closely to one another. It is up to your discretion whether to describe the table setting as cosy or cramp!
The entrance of the restaurant appears modern, however the interior is oriental. Most Malaysians will find the restaurant to be a typical “no frills attached” type of diner: simple, clean and practical.

Food – 4/5
Organic Leaf serves a variety of Chinese and Western food – although mainly Chinese cuisines. Although the dishes offered are pretty regular to the other vegetarian restaurants, the chef in Organic Leaf certainly knows how to prepare these dishes very well. What makes these dishes taste particularly good is the total absence of oil – something most vegetarians appreciate, as it provides for a very healthy dining experience. In addition, the seasoning used is just nice, not too salty nor too bland. One dish that is certainly worth trying is the Monkey Head Mushroom with Sesame Salad Dressing. The dish is not too heavy nor too dry to be taken with brown rice. A must try! One item that left us on a sour note was the fruit drink – was a little too sweet for our liking!

Pricing – 4/5
With a price range of RM 11 – RM 35, it is on a pricey end for a simple restaurant. However, if you are into quality ingredients, Organic Leaf uses products that is both organic and fresh. That makes the price worth paying!
Vegetarian Selection – 3/5
There is nothing extraordinary about the selection of dishes. The menu is similar what most vegetarian restaurants would offer.
Service – 3/5
As a whole, the waiters were pleasant, and they took the orders very well with no mistakes. However, they were on the higher end of the spectrum in terms of serving time.
