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!!

Great food. The mango salad and 3 layer bread are to die for. Pineapple chicken had a nice balance of creamy meets sweet and spicy. The banana coconut desert was simple but great tasting. Highly addictive food. Only draw back was the fishcake appetizer, very rubbery. Also service took forever as they only had 1 main person working the floor. The decor is plain but you easily bypass it with the quality and cost of the food.

Both my husband and I love this place. It's an ideal place to relax , have a good conversation while enjoying the tasty food. The place has a homely feel about it...not crowded like the other good places. The waiters give their honest opinions - for example, when we were about to order an extra plate of rice, they themselves said that would not be required - one would be enough :) The lunch special is an excellent deal - you get soup , an entree and rice for almost half the regular price. My favorite dish is "monsoon vegetables" - a hearty , satisfying fare.

One of the best values for its amazing food in the upper east side. And yes, the service was good too, very helpful and polite. It's in our top 10 staples in the neighborhood.

Great food. Gracious service. Good Value. Why isn't this place packed? Maybe because the decor could use a bit of sprucing up. It doesn't look very inviting from the outside, but your taste buds will thank you after. I highly recommend Cafe Mingala.

Why isn't this placed packed? Do people not know that Burmese Food is basically a mix of Thia and a mild Indian influence? The food is nothing short of amazing, and the service is great. It is also super cheap!!
