Visited with the intention of dining. The outside was looking very sad with luggage scattered about and a couple of inlaid tables, no menus etc - almost abandoned looking. It now gives the impression of a backpackers dormitory building. Decided not to eat there as...there are plenty of more options with a nice ambience. What a pityMore

The Nasi Lemak I ordered was disappointing because the Mackerel fish was not fresh and tasted so unpleasantly fishy. The waiter made some excuse that they prepped and marinated the fish the day before and when I complained, he did not even have the presence...of mind to take the plate to the kitchen for the chef to taste it. So unfresh was the fish that its histamines triggered my allergy.More

Fabulous little place located in a quiet neighbourhood with both outside/inside seating (and a/c!). I had the beef rendang and it was absolutely fresh, spicy and delicious. The beef was tender and the turmeric rice a nice balance The two side dished were terrific and...their various ingredients/spices mixed with different levels of heat and texture was a celebration in my mouth. I highly recommend.More

This spot is a little out of the way but I wanted to try as it promised authentic cuisine away from the madness of the main streets. Lovely outdoor area. Staff were friendly. Food was ok.

Went here as it had a decent reputation on TA. Unfortunately the food was poor. Very bland and tasteless. Extremely disappointing chicken satay, with a strange taste, one side of the chicken was burnt, the other not cooked. Worst laksa I've eaten in 3 weeks....We should have known as we were the only two in there at 20:00. Reminder to self, if nobody else is eating there that's a reminder to you not to also.More

An cosy alley cafe with nice frappes and fruit juices with a twist. The menu are Malayan and short but very delicious. Sitting outside are “hyggeligt” as we say in Denmark.

Ahhhh love the street foods of Georgetown BUT when you need that break….a nice cool break; a one stop selection of local Malay, Chinese, Nyonya, Western menu offering local favourites or that much needed salad after days of holiday indulgence. The Mews Cafe is my...go to….. a coffee or in between meals pit stop, breakfast, lunch or that casual dinner after a day of exploring Georgetown!More

Three years since my last visit and they are still serving great Malay food from a limited choice. Good service. Nice location on a quiet street. Beef Rendang is recommended.

Delicious food in a lovely alfresco space. We ordered 2 ‘small’ plates (prawn fritter and fried roti) and a salad to start and then Nonya Laksa for a main. The small plates are anything but small and very delicious. The fritters were crunchy and light,...the stuffed roti’s filling of chicken was moist and delicious. The salad was excellent with a lovely dressing. They kindly split the laksa into 2 bowls for us as we were sharing and even though we didn’t need to eat anymore we really enjoyed it! The right amount of spicy soup and delicious fish balls and vegetables. The staff were very friendly.More

Our first night in George Town and we fancied something a little different to the countless night markets we'd eaten at for the previous 10 days. The outside seating faces onto a busy-ish road but it's nice to people watch. The service was good and...the food was really good for the money. Highly recommended.More

Myself and my husband have travelled throughout Asia, and the dishes here are probably some of the best we have ever tasted. Have eaten here twice already! Chicken salad, local curries, satay and fish cakes all incredible. A lovely, chilled atmosphere and beautiful local artwork...on display. A MUST if you are in Georgetown.More

Simple interior but fantastic flavours. We had the laksa and something we forgot the name of (see picture). Both were amazing and their spicy level were just ok.

This is in the center of historic George Town so parking is limited. If you don’t mind walking you may be able to find parking near the water.
