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!!

Cafe Mingala has terrific food and good prices. I especially love their chicken curry and basil chicken. The food is always cooked to perfection, with just the right amount of spices, and the portions are generous. I order from here every weekend, and am never disappointed. Their lunch menu is a terrific value, and delivery is always fast. Highly recommend!!

Cafe Mingala has excellent food, and their delivery is generally very fast. I highly recommend their lunch menu for great food at terrific prices. I love their chicken curry and basil chicken. Their portion size is fantastic too. The food is expertly prepared. It's definitely one of the best cuisine in NYC. The restaurant is kind of small, but I have raves about their delivery. Highly recommend!
