A good place to stop for coffee and iced lattes. They have free wifi and nice seating where you can relax and chill. A good meeting place.

Exactly what you would expect from Starbucks, but they never fail to deliver, the place was clean as you would expect and the staff were friendly, reasonably priced

It's Starbucks. As the title states, wherever in the world. Consistently good coffee, free wifi, courteous staff and another great place to enjoy local life happening around you.

Whilst holidaying in Penang I was desperate for a real coffee and found it at Starbucks. Hot, delicious and fast! I didn't want food just coffee and that's what I got!

Starbucks at Prangin Mall: New staff, inside poorly air-cond, no longer maintains the standard both on service quality, food and beverage it used to have.
