Went for lunch and ordered the tasting platter. The samosa's were delicious, probably the best I have had. The beef randang was also very good, great start! We then tried the chicken, it was uncooked, bad. We took it back and they brought us a cooked version which was okay. The salad was good and... read more

Tables in a courtyard setting by a quiet street. Good food - mostly East Asian - with several vegetarian options.

Food and staff are great, but prices to high for the area. I had both lunch and dinner there with no complaints about the food. They also put together just a simple dessert for me when asked.

The staff are friendly, but the menu is limited, mostly high-priced versions of local foods, Everything was well prepared, but the price is way high for dishes that one could get from authentic locals nearby. The price simply reflects the gentrification (and eventual undoing) of Georgetown.

Decent prices, good selection for vegetarians. We ordered three dishes and three beers this was less than $60aud. The food was tasty and decent portions. The staff are great here considering this is a cafe! I think the bad reviews are expecting this to be 5 star restaurant. Worth a visit

You name it, they've pretty much got it. Great food cold beer. Hot coffee and teas with great service. Good manners goes a long long way when travelling, remember to pack them.

Friendly staff who modified their menu for our son who is gluten and egg free and made us feel reassured that his food would be safe for him to eat. Nice quiet location and close to everything.

We visited the Mews Cafe based on TripAdvisor Review. The Cafe has a nice outside seating area. All the menu items looked delicious. We ordered Laksa and the spicy rice noodle salad. We liked both dishes. The fresh mixed juice was also tasty. The service was friendly, though the price is a bit on the high-end compared to other cafes.

We just visited for a coffee whilst wandering some of the streets of Georgetown. Good coffee, served quickly and courteously. Excellent place to spend some time enjoying the quiet and calm whilst you read your travel guide or newspaper. Did not eat there but the menu looked comprehensive and reasonably priced. Note, the cafe has a number of publications for... More
