Many local food choices on the menu, relaxing atmosphere. Food quality is excellent. Always busy which is a great sign and the owner is very helpful and friendly. Pricing is in live with local costs so you won't brake the bank. Went there numerous times while staying at the Hard Rock.

We were lucky to discover three excellent eateries just minutes away from our hotel (The Park Royal). The food was fresh, tasty and great value for money. The only challenge is thyat your beer doesnt stay cold because of the hot and humid climate of Penang.

Our family of 4 adults and 4 children ate here one evening. The restaurant is opened up to the street and is very informal, like a home town bar with tables. We were entertained by a guitar player playing popular songs and asked for requests. It was crowded but very "home like." Like a living room. A jovial atmosphere prevailed.... More

We enjoyed our meal here last night. The food was nicely prepared and presented, the staff were friendly and efficient and there is a good feel about the place. There was no band playing last night. It doesn't pretend to compete with its more sophisticated neighbour Ferringhi Gardens yet for a few ringgits more you get totally different experience at... More

We were only in Penang for 4 nights and we found this place on our 3rd night. After a disastrous meal in Batu Ferringhi on our first night it was so good to find Living Room Cafe and enjoy not only fine food but excellent hospitality from the hostess. She advised us which were the best local dishes and their... More

We went here because of the reputation of its specialities and we weren't disappointed. We had the beef Rendang, prawn red curry and the fish curry. All of the specialities board. The food had plenty of flavour and was priced above average for Batu Ferranghi, but worth it. It was definitely for the tourists as there were only westerners in... More
