My first Burmese cuisine experience...eh, nothing special. I had the mango veg in red curry sauce (recommended by the waiter as the most popular vegetarian dish) and it was rather flavorless, really dull. We had the golden triangles appetizer and my friend had the basil duck (she said it wasn't very flavorful). Instead of naan, we tried the thousand layer bread which was interesting/dense. Although the servers did a great job of filling waters frequently, they were far from pleasant. The decor was charming though and clean enough.

My friend and I recently ate here for the first time, and we will definitely be returning. The mango salad and coconut rice were delicious, and I had a really interesting soup with chicken and noodles that was almost like a custard. We ate a lot of food and spent about $30 - it was great. I can't wait to go back!

Still love the food and swear by the lunch specials, but got a surprise when I called at 3:50 today to order and was told it now ends at 3:30. Since I'm not paying 3x the price for the same lunch, I will pass on the excellent food for today. I was sooooo craving it today :(

I'm not really familiar with Burmese food in general so I can't comment on the authenticity of this restaurant. What I can say is that the food served here tastes great! To me it's reminiscent of Thai and nearby cuisines. I'll be back. Recommended.

we've come to this place numerous times with family in friends in town, we've always been very pleased! This is the better of the Cafe Mingalas in the city. The mango chicken dish and the kheema are great! Very much like home-style Indian cooking. YUM!

We totally agree with some of the other reviewers. The food is excellent, the prices reasonable, and the servers are attentive. I did appreciate the artwork on the walls, someone did a beautiful job of recreating their beloved country...but the atmosphere was alittle stale. Very clean bathrooms. Great spot if you're visiting Hunter and want something different.

My boyfriend and I frequent Cafe Mingala and the food is consistently delicious!! A few of our favorite dishes include the ginger salad, beancurd & pineapples w/red curry and the hot & sour soup. The service is fantastic and friendly. Even though the interior could use some updating, it has grown on us and is cozy. We HIGHLY recommend Cafe Mingala to anyone!!
