I loved that the this little place was lined with red palms, which provided a welcoming, cozy space. There was a good selection of food, which was tasty & well-presented & a good choice of drinks as well. I noticed that the other patrons were also enjoying the food. Service was attentive, though a tad robotic.

A western cafe but the local food was surprisingly tasty. Had the sampler for 2 pax and the serving was generous. The chicken, rendang, vegetables, fish were delicious. The skin for the samosa was the least tasty as the dough was too thick and a little powdery. The kuning rice is fragrant and the blue one is not so nice... More

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
