Food 
Organic Cuisine

Getting There
Located within the 1-Utama Shopping Mall.
View Larger Map
Parking
There are ample parking bays within the 1-Utama Shopping Mall. As with most malls here in the Klang Valley, you just need a little patience in finding an available one.
Ambience
Because this place also serves as organic food market, the dining area is rather limited and for some, it may make them feel cramped in. However, the place is well lit and clean making it very inviting for diners or casual shoppers at the organic shop.
1 nice and unique feature of this place was the kitchen that's visible to diners and shoppers alike, right smack in the middle of the restaurant. The kitchen is well-kept & clean. Diners might have a little bit of fun watching the kitchen staff do their magic.
As I like bright contrasting colors, I might be a little biased when I say the the bright contrasting colored walls gave the place its unique identity.  
Taste
Well, I'm not sure if I'm influenced by the hype but I did find that I quite enjoyed my food during my visits. I did find the food to be fresh & tasty.
Other than the one time when I ordered fish and they had overdone it thus making it a little too dry for my tastes, their food is generally quite well prepared and taste good.
Variety 
They have ample choices for diners and even for the slightly fussier eaters as they have rice, chicken, beef, lamb and even fish items on the menu to accommodate even the pickiest eater. 

Personally, I found that even after having tried a few of their menu items, I would still gladly go back for a repeat visit for either menu items I have not yet tried or even go back for more of the same.
Presentation
I may be biased towards this place but the food is served on white chine, which reinforces the healthy and clean image that is already in the diners minds the moment they step into the place, making almost impossible to resist sinking your teeth into the food that was just served to you.
Value For Money
Altho' I'm not a believer in the term "Organic Food", especially not in this country, but I truly believe they do serve you organic food here and they also remind diners of the percentage of the materials used in each menu item that's organic.
The prices altho' are not cheap but I think are very reasonable seeing as they are comparative to other cafes/bistros/restaurants of this category - ie: clean and located within a premier mall. Diners be prepared to spend about between RM25 - 45 per person for a meal. I also need to mention that the portions are reasonably large.  This is a good place to try if you've not tried dining in an "Organic" place before. You may find that you'd end up a believer.

Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

Sat Nam Kriya

Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a few days.


Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:
