Nice ambience but food is not memorable and certainly not worth the price. I was here with my family of more than 10 persons during the chinese new year week (yes, this review is late). None of us were impressed with the food. Maybe it's...More

It's the only restaurant in Geogre town that I can eat curry (the others' curry is too strong for me) The rice with coconut milk is tasteful. Yummy salad. Expensive but worth it. The only minus: the restaurant is too hot outside but too cold...More

The menu is not very extensive but the food is really good. The waiters were extremely helpful and friendly. I will not think twice about eating there again. It seems that they have live music on Saturday evenings. Not sure about the rest of the...More

Whilst Penang offers lots of places to dine, I highly recommend The Mews Cafe. So much love and attention goes into the food and it's staff are so dedicated to attend to your every whim. Though the modern interiors are not the traditional Penang style,...More

While the service staff were helpful and nice, the owner/manager is rude and condescending. She probably shouts or embarrass her staff all the time that she forgets and extends this attitude to a paying customer. Next time a customer has difficulty opening the toilet door,...More

We were on the search for vegetarian food and had a wonderful pad thai here. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. Great drinks spot in the heart of Georgetown, close to the graffiti art with stunning decor. Tranquil little spot. Highly recommended 🐵

We were recommended to come here by the folks at Kebaya (it might be a sister eatery). We ordered Nasi Lamak Bento and struggled to eat it owing to the poor quality of the chicken cooking. Considering how many cheaper hawker options with amazing quality...More

We are sorry you did not enjoy our Nasi Lemak Bento and accept that food appreciation is a very much subjective experience. Having said that, we cannot however, accept the comparison with hawker or street food when our food is prepared from the freshest quality...More

Service was really fantastic here, and the restaurant was very quiet with 0 waiting time on a Tuesday evening. However, I find that the food is very mediocre and on the pricey side. Wouldn't come here again.More

Dear Katriina I, We would like to thank you for the time taken to review our café. We are glad that you enjoyed our food and service. We regret that you found a hair inside your fruit juice but we have to declare we are totally perplexed how it got in there as our staff who prepared and served the juice is totally bald, bless him. Nevertheless, when you did show the little hair to our service staff, they had acted swiftly by replacing it with a new drink. We totally regret that you had to go through that experience and are glad that the replacement drink was to your satisfaction. We wouldn't dare to consider our place a fine-dining restaurant but we would like to think we are a place where people could have a casual and delicious meal with drinks and just kick off your shoes and relax. We hope you would consider coming back to our cafe again soon.

Hi, yes it is Halal! But they serve alcohol (though not to Muslims, they have a sign telling so)
