Happened to stroll past this little gem, and was not disappointed.
Awesome food, lovely warm atmosphere, attentive service.
Ordered a chicken rendang which was the special of the day. A treat for the tastebuds, to say the least.
They also, according to rumours, make the best chocolate brownies? I did not have any, but saw many come out of the kitchen on the way to the tables. Will definitely try them out next time.

After spending several days eating street food pork and pork, i need new variation. Stumble upon this place in near my dorm, thought i could give it a try. The food was okay and the staf is very chatty and warm. I like the set up of the place and the price is reasonable too. I order the local food sour and spicy chicken with rice and penang special white coffee. The coffee was really good by the way.

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.
