Recommended by friends and locals here in penang, the living room doesn't let you down. Amy is a friendly host thank the signature dishes are awesome. Make sure you try the salt and pepper squid and save room for some deep fried ice cream as desert.

Visited first on the back of a TA review. Came for late dinner; beef rendang and nasi goreng - both fab. Staff really friendly though not intrusive. Gave us good advice on day trips etc. Finally, when we left mid lightening storm, the owners offered to call a cab and loaned us a brolly too. Much appreciated! Returned the following... More

Ate at 4 different restaurants in the area and this restaurant is the best one. The owners are exceptionally welcoming without being intrusive. The food is very good and very reasonably priced. Service is fast and good and the owner plays some nice live background music whilst you enjoy your meal. Give it a go!

We visited this little restaurant twice recently - and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is tucked away between the Ferringhi Food Garden and Helenas. It is overseen by, presumably, the owner, who takes the time to speak to all of the diners. The menu offers a choice of Malaysian and Chinese food, with a nod to the 'Western' palate... More

I took a little risk and booked the Living Room for a international group of 32 people without having eaten there before - just based on the good feedback in Tripadvisor. We loved it. Excellent local food combined with a super fast and very personal service - and very affordable as well. Thanks for hosting us, Amy. We will be... More
