After spending 5 weeks in Penang on our second trip, I was definitely seeking some healthy food restaurants in Penang. Actually, some of these still have some delicious local dishes too. So here are our favourite picks for healthy food in Penang Malaysia.

The Leaf Healthy House
A nice little vegetarian restaurant near Little India. It has fresh and tasty food, perfect for a lighter lunch or dinner. We loved the pesto pasta and dumpling soup. Here they don’t use MSG, preservatives or artificial colouring.
5 Lebuh Penang, George Town
Every day from 11.30 AM to 3 PM + 5.30 PM to 10 PM
One of the best restaurants in Penang, Sushi Kitchen serves delicious vegetarian Japanese food. You definitely don’t miss the meat, the flavours are delicious. We loved the sushi and noodle dishes, and the service was so friendly. This is my favourite pick for healthy food in Penang.
12 Gat Lebuh Aceh, George Town
Monday to Thursday 11.30 AM to 9.30 PM + Friday to Sunday 11.30 AM to 2.30 PM + 6 PM to 10 PM (closed Tuesdays)
Shia’s Homemade Granola
Shia’s Homemade Granola is a tiny store with only a few seats and tables. Here you can come in and pick up Granola and other items to take home or sit down and have a healthy meal. The smoothie bowl was a little lacking but also probably the only place you will find something like this in Penang. But I love their create your own salad bowls to get your hit of fresh veggies.
1, India House, Church Street Ghaut (Gat Lebuh Gereja), George Town
Monday to Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM
Wholy Wonder is a cute little vegan cafe and yoga studio near the Hin Bus Depot. We had the pizza and it was tasty. Although unless you are staying in this area it’s a little less central.
61 Jalan Gurdwara, George Town
Tuesday to Sunday from 12 PM to 9 PM
Woodlands Vegetarian Restaurant
There are a few Indian restaurants we loved in Penang, but Woodlands, in particular, is a great option for vegetarians. Super tasty and one we kept going back to. There are different menu options available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so depending on what you want, you might find yourself visiting at a few different times. All dishes are not necessarily super healthy, but all are delicious and vegetarian.
Woodlands Vegetarian Restaurant
60 Lebuh Penang, Geroge Town
Every day from 8.30 AM to 10 PM
Come here to get your fresh juice kick. Juice code is a smoothie and juice bar that also has a breakfast menu (although it’s the drinks that are the healthy option here).
230 Lebuh Pantai, George Town
Every day from 8.30 AM to 6 PM
