[Note: The following restaurant has been reviewed by the TsemRinpoche.com Vegetarian Restaurant Review team]
Restaurant Veggie House is the latest vegetarian restaurant in Bentong, Pahang. It serves vegetarian “mixed rice” in the afternoons, and is the only vegetarian restaurant that is open for dinner. Although this is a new restaurant, the chef is one of the most experienced vegetarian chefs in Bentong, so the food quality is assured.
Interior – 3/5
The interior is basic but clean and comfortable. If you want some privacy or have a business meeting, the restaurant offers a private room which can fit about 20 people.
Food – 4/5
The restaurant offers traditional Chinese home-cooked fare and specialises in mushroom dishes including honey mushrooms, sweet and sour mushrooms and salted pepper mushrooms. The “four heavenly kings” (stink beans, ladies fingers, long beans and eggplant) with vegetarian shrimp in spicy sauce is very popular among the diners. Their curry vegetables are also very tasty but you must order off menu.
“Mixed rice”, curry noodles and nasi lemak (on selected days) are available during lunchtime.
Pricing – 3/5
As a home cooking restaurant, the prices are reasonable. Most of their small dishes are between RM10 to RM14. The food portions are quite big even for small dishes.
Selection – 3/5
The selection of food is not very wide, perhaps because they only opened recently. Their menu is easy to read and most dishes have an accompanying photo for easy reference.
Service – 4/5
You can expect the genuinely warm and welcoming service of a small town from the staff, chef and owner. Many customers are regulars and it is almost like a canteen for them. When the chef and owners are not so busy, don’t be surprised if they sit down and chat with you!
