Reviewed 12 June 2018

The food is good, tasty and healthy and the concept is the one need to be given full marks. As mentioned in other review, the waiter, waitress and even the cook are OKU (disable people) and the idea of building them into part of the society deserve a pat of good work to the owner , Mr Jackie Teh.
Ipoh has extensive good food and this restaurant simply add some heart and soul into it.
Its a MUST GO visit place.
Oh need to mentioned that this place is also Muslim friendly.

This restaurant deserves more clients as well as more reviews. The staff is very friendly and smiley. We talked to Jacky the manager for a while and we find it a great initiative to start this cafe, great job!

Myself being vegan, I was thrilled to find this restaurant just up the road from our hostel. Unfortunately we arrived on a Wednesday when they are closed all day, so could only visit once on the Thursday before we had to leave Ipoh!

The staff are deaf and are so smiley and friendly. You are shown to a table and write your order down before handing to the front desk. We know some BSL from home however it was different to the (American?) sign language these people were using so we were taught a few new things! One of them came over and asked where we were from (on paper), then proceeded to teach us how to say 'England' and 'Malaysia' in sign. Don't worry if you don't know any sign as this is never an issue here! There are a couple of hearing staff who help translate between customers and staff if there's ever an issue.

This is such a lovely initiative and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our short time at this place. Just sitting in this environment watching sign being used and the wonderful staff made our entire week. Myself and my boyfriend both work with children at home who have special needs and/or are deaf/mute, so we were so touched to know this place exists - to give these incredible people a chance to work.

Asides from all of this, the food is brilliant, fresh and tasty. We ordered 'fish' and chips, and mushrooms in thai basil sauce with brown rice. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We also had coffee and soya milk, then treated ourselves to a slice of their vegan passionfruit cake which was insanely moist and delicious!!! Even for my meat-eating boyfriend, this place was a big hit.

Meal prices are slightly higher than we are used to, however they are still in the cheaper range and portion sizes are not huge, but it's definitely quality over quantity here.

If you are in the area, definitely don't give this place a miss - limited opening hours but so worth it, in our opinion. I just hope this restaurant continues to thrive and bring in customers as its such a wonderful place.

Thank you for making our week :)

Excellent cafe with western and Asian vegan and vegetarian food. The menu is extensive and the food quality very very good. Staff really friendly and courteous. Limited opening hours, opens lunch time and evenings for a couple of hours each, excluding all Wednesdays when it is closed.

All staff here apart from the owner are hearing or speech impaired therefore this is the ethical concept of the cafe. Staff communicate in sign language so you can even learn a bit of this whilst you are there.

Excellent cake (vegan cake), just good good cake that happens to be vegan, really yummy.

Affordable mid-range prices. An excellent and popular lunch/dinner stop off in Ipoh.

A little cafe helm by friendly, warm and efficient disable Service staff.
One can learn simple sign language, a big sign alphablet on the wall.

The decor more charming and welcoming than other vegan / vegetarians places in ipoh. The menu is a fusion of salads, vegan pasta, bento boxes, etc. Some vegan cakes available. Write your orders n pay at the cashier.

Excellent concept to empower the disabled....
