We arrived just in time 2.45pm - the next people who arrived were turned away. We had beef rending - delicious and a curry also good. If you like a little ambience and a friendly patron this works.

Excellent breakfasts and the best hosts you will find in Penang let alone Batu. Go there you will enjoy the experience.

Great restaurant, wonderful hosts. Returning to Penang, necessitates a number of visits to The Living Room. Amy and Ben are such amazing hosts and the food top notch. Not to be missed.

After all the rave reviews on this eatery we left very disappointed. The owners are trading big time on trip advisor reviews and have even had signs made to reflect this. Whilst the food was ok for a western palate, it certainly lacked the usual Malay flavours. Good for kids with fussy appetites but for better value and flavour it's... More

During our 11 days in Ferringhi we ate lunch at this cafe 9 times. The food is good and the service fast. Prices are good and the banana juice is to die for. Amy, the owner, is so friendly and welcoming. Be sure to make a stop here while in Ferringhi!
