I reviewed Micke's Place after a visit last summer and gave it four stars. My wife and I are back in Penang now (Jan., 2013) and have eaten 2 of our four dinners so far at Micke's. I'm upping it to five stars. On the first visit this time I had the fish curry which was even better than I remembered it, with a generous amount of fish and a really unique and tasty curry (the star annise makes a big difference). My wife had a light meal of mushroom soup and garlic bread, both excellent. On our second visit we both had linguine alfredo (that is, their carbonara w/o the ham) and it was really fine -- perfectly cooked pasta with a very tasty sauce. We shared an order of garlic bread. The lady who runs the place is totally charming.
The review below by HP88 alleging that the food is all microwaved and none of it is fresh could not be more false, misleading, misguided and downwright ignorant. Ignore his rant and come to this wonderful little place.
