“Great place to spend your night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

During my visit in Penang, we always pass by Micke's Place but never step in. The last day of staying in Penang, we decided to have dinner in this place. Micke's Place is small but homey. The light is dim but comfortable. The hosts is very friendly, we don't know what to order, she came and sit beside us for a little chat. The food is good! In overall, I guess we are very lucky because before we leave, we get a chance to have dinner this cozy place.

“Awsome Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

This is one of the greatest restaurants in Georgetown.
The hosts are one of the nicest and funniest people I've ever met.
If you like some good western food in a great atmosphere go there. It was a great experience during our trip in Malaysia and we are really lucky that we found this cozy nice place.

“Old Penang students should dine here at least once.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

If you like to recall the experience of seating at a school desk, this is the place. They have school desks from primary school till form 3 I think. Believe it or not, food is served on them! The food is good and the brownies are "approved by Belgians". My nephews seem to agree. On the walls are graffiti from patrons around the world. Looks like they have run out of wall space and customers will start on the ceiling next. Didn't meet Micke but Eric was on hand to serve. Friendly service and good company. A small place but that is what makes it charming.

“The reviews are right!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Sitting in here right now. The reviews don't lie.

I've just had the turkey pizza and am now eagerly awaiting the banana pancakes.

You can spend ages just reading all the writing on the walls from around the world.

If your in Georgetown, stop on by!!

It only opens at night though!

“So and so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Tried Micke's place according to TA's excellent reviews. I'm not sure what I should have ordered but Pasta Carbonara (today's special) was not worth of reviews.

Ok, it was good but nothing special. It was three adults of us dining and nobody felt amazed.

Just a normal dinner, quite good pricing but very nice service. Maybe we all just had wrong plates.
