Great food!

Location was easy to find, across from the art gallery, beside Garden Ferringhi, on the main road. We ordered only Malaysian/Asian food (beef rendang, fish curry, and stirfry vegetables). Everything was delicious. It's nothing fancy. It's a casual eatery with some mighty authentic and... read more

Okay we read all the reviews, very much each to their own opinion. In my opinion you cannot go past this place, norshould you. Whilst it is just a little more expensive than a hawker stall ( like only a few extra rm ) you get a great feed , in a restaurant atmosphere at reasonable price, oh and real,... More

Found this recommended on Trip Advisor so had to have a look. Great place with friendly attentive staff who have time to talk to you. Obviously lots of regulars. Service was fast, Menu - a reasonable selection cooked to order. Good value and nice atmosphere. Easy to find off the main drag.

Ate here on our first night after doing our research on Trip Advisor. Both the food and service were really really good and it's located pretty much right next to the Parkroyal. We only ate here once though in the end, as found the variety, quality and cheapness of Long Beach, couldnt be missed! Definitely worth a visit though :)

We went here based on the rave reviews we found on TripAdvisor and were sorely disappointed. The food was very average. We thought the food at the Long Beach Cafe was better and also considerably cheaper. Certainly wouldn't say it was value for money when compared to other options that are available in the area.

Good service by the owner! Delicious curry kapitan and rendang! Abit on the pricey side for local food but has nice ambience so felt worth it.

Encouraged by all the good reviews we had a meal at the Living Room. OK, the setting is attractive and the service is good. The food not so much. The menu has chicken cooked in about 5 ways... then fish cooked in what seem to be the same 5 ways... same for beef etc. My Thai chicken looked just like... More
