Great little place

Had lunch at this great little cafe/restaurant on Muntri. Delicious Malaysian/Asian food and tasty smoothies. So glad to find this gem for some good local flavours in an air-conditioned room! Although, I would skip the shrimp fritters next time -- mostly batter and quite greasy. The noodles were... read more

We were so pleased to find this place, tucked away on a little side street - we ended up visiting 3 times during an 8 night stay! We wouldn't normally do that, but the food and wine was great and the service really friendly! We fell in love with the prawn jah mee - a light to medium spiced soup-based... More

I was hunting for wall art near by muntri street during 12pm, I was very hot so decided tp drop by here for cool down a little bit, ordered beef rendang, not bad also not cheap to dine here. But have to mention the service here is real good.

Quiet, cozy ambiance with great choice of authentic local dishes. When the streets of Penang get too hot and hectic, this is a good place to hangout and savor the local food. Price is of course on the high-end, but if you don't want to put up with battling for a table and the cacophony of a local kopitiam, this... More

Had dinner here which was a very pleasant experience. Nice courtyard location with a pleasant ambience. Staff very polite and good service. I had the Nasi Goreng which was absolutely fantastic - loved it. Very reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Not to be missed if you want a restaurant that caters for both local and western food... More

The family went there for dinner. Reasonably priced food, freshly made juice and we enjoyed our selection of local favoured noodle and rice.

I was wandering around George Town on my own and I was thinking I am hungry, where can I have something to eat and I came across Muntri Mews Cafe. I decided to go in and sit down and order some food. I ordered the chicken samosas. They came out with a separate side salad with a vinaigrette dressing and... More

The food is excellent, e.g. their Family platter for Father's day. Awesome local nyonya dishes. Do try their chocolate walnut cake, it's super awesome and moist. Another great dessert is the caramelized banana fritter. Reasonably priced and value for money. Good ambiance and good for people watching too.

The lunch menu is quite extensive Asian choice. the nasi lemak, for example has good portion of nasi lemak, the (seafood) sambal, the egg, standard condiments and curry chicken i had the Kerabu pai tee which was a good twist. The pad thai was ok. Wish they would grind the peanuts... More

we were staying down the road, so used this cafe as our local during our stay in George Town. We had lunch and dinners here, and all food was tasty and beautifully prepared. We liked sitting outside, so you could take in the passing parade of locals and tourists. Staff were very helpful and fun.
