Great Tasting Platter

This was by far the most expensive place we ate in comparison to everywhere else we had been in Penang but had also the best ambiance. The location is on one of the nicer streets in Georgetown and is really beautifully lit in the evening. The tasting platter we shared was very well presented and... read more

Every dish is awesome! We came here twice in two days. Tried many starters, rice cuisine and noodle cuisine. Every dish is giving us a feeling of "wow". In addition, the manager is good Chinese speaker說中文, you can ask for recommendation. If you come to George Town, don't miss it.

I have only had breakfast here on two social visits to Penang, and liked it every time. It's a cozy place with nice atmosphere. They have a wide selection of breakfast sets.

Parts of Penang were getting crowded and too touristy but this street is not there yet, although signs sof too many tousist business are starting to emerge. The cafe sits on the street and is part of a small boutique hotel. It serves excellent food with friendly service.

We originally walked through the blistering heat for some refreshments at Daily Dose Cafe and was disappointed to find that it was closed for renovation. We had read favourable reviews for Muntri Cafe so ventured down the road gasping for a drink. We received a warm welcome and given a free choice of where we wanted to sit. After quenching... More

Although Penang's forte is hawker food, Muntri Mews offered a delicious break from our more casual hawker dining experiences. The menu still has a Malay bent, but is perhaps a safer option for those who are not adventurous enough to eat hawker style. The menu of refreshing drinks (including delicious iced coffees) has a more Western feel and offers a... More

We came across this restaurant as we were strolling in George Town. Its outdoor space looked so appealing that we decided to sit down for a cool drink. When we looked at the menu, we decided to try out the food , and we were not disappointed. We had been in George Town for a few days, and it was... More

We visited this restaurant after reading about it on Tripadvisor. Lovely little spot with a secluded courtyard and delicious food at great prices. Live music was a pleasantly unexpected extra.

The road (Muntri) where this cafe is has a lot of small cafes to choose from. The Mews was our choice and it was exactly what we felt like. Not to sound like a typical westerner however it was great to have a simple meal of poached eggs, smoked salmon, toast and coffee. Im sure it wasn't the cheapest cafe... More
