Stopped last Mews on our walk through George Town for a late lunch. Service was efficient and prompt. As the cafe was busy there was no seating inside, but we were offered a seat under the fan outside. Drinks arrived promptly and the waiter consistently refilled our water. Pad Thai was absolutely delicious, although the serving size was a little... More

Stopped by for cocktails and dessert. Took a table outside by a welcome fan. The cafe occupies the entrance to the leafy mew, terrific ambiance and friendly staff. Pandan sago pudding and the banana fritters were great, with a real restaurant twist on the standard.

I had a great time at Muntri Mews Cafe, experiencing the good food and relaxing ambiance. I was the only Muslim lady in my dinner party that night, and when the call for evening prayer commenced, Rizal, the cafe Manager went out of his way to prepare a room for me -- at no extra charge. He ensured I had... More

It's a hip yet traditional kopitiam. Very laidback vibe, very East meets West. Dinners have a choice of local and western dishes .

Good ambience for a family meal. Parking wise is a bit challenging. There isn't much crowd on weekdays lunch hours however. Price is a little on the high side, but rightly so considering the quality of the food. Ordered Local Tasting Platter which is a great introduction to authentic Malaysian cuisine. The rendang, otah, curry puff and gula melaka dessert... More

We were in Penang and arranged for a family dinner at Muntri Mews. The selection of food was good and the waiters were helpful in providing additional information. We liked the service and the ambience for a relaxed and enjoyable evening. Would advise a reservation during weekends. Price a little on the high side, but guess it depends on what... More

Traveled across Penang based on Trip Advisor ratings, but the Singapore food courts have better food than what we had here. Even the PadThai was not as good as Bangkok street ones. The ambience is good though
