Have been to the Living Room since it opened as a restaurant. The food is very good, there is enough variation on the menu to keep us coming back.. The seating is a little cramped if you are tall. Each table has a treadle holding it up. The owners are genuinely friendly and sit and talk to the customers when... More

We went here for a return visit and it is good,but can't get past the fact it exists on top of trip advisor reviews due to well not sure....... Hosts - owners are attentive, food was ok, hot and seemed fresh, though did only have dodgy tummies of whole holiday the next day. Atmosphere and ambiance are good, and place... More

Great food and very friendly staff, we told the waitress what we liked and she recommended the perfect dish for us. Would definitely go here again.

My Husband and I ordered the satay and spring rolls to share, they were really nice. My Husband ordered Beef rendang for main course which Amy the owner explained is a family recipie and takes a long time to prepare. It was really tender and flavoursome. I had the Garlic prawns which were also delicious. The house wine was good... More

I visited this small cafe bar on my last night in Penang . I was welcomed warmly and quickly my order was taken. The food was well prepared tasty and very good value. I was alone that night and it felt welcoming and an easy place to eat in alone , which was a nice experience. The owners are smiling... More

Great dinner, really quick and efficient service. The food was great, we asked the waiter what was recommended and went with that. Can't believe that people travel half way across the world and order fish and chips and spaghetti bolognese! Stick with the local dishes and you can't go wrong.

The reviews we read about this restaurant made it sound really fantastic, so maybe our expectations were a little high. The food was OK, but nothing to write home about and the portions were a bit on the small side for the price. However, the lady who ran it was very friendly and welcoming. So, we thought this was quite... More

When we arrived at around 7.30pm the restaurant was crowded with happy tourists. However they found us a table towards the back of the restaurant and we settled in for an enjoyable evening. The service was excellent and the drinks icy cold! Out of preference I would choose a table at the front of the restaurant but we don't always... More

what a gorgeous funky cafe! The best chicken sate in Penang! We ate here with three adults and two children, walked via the beach from the Golden Sands with a gorgeous sunset! A warm greeting by Amy and we were seated. Lots to look at, local craft I assume, and the menu reads very well. We ordered Beef Rendang, two... More
