It's only small, but service and quality of food is excellent. One Aus glass of wine, one large tiger, two mains plus two desserts and a coffee came to $28AUD. Note that it is closed on Wednesdays.

You have to eat at The Living Room if staying in Batu F. My family and i tried many places but found none better than the living room.

At the south end of the 'strip' and after many self promises over the years we called in and can only say that all the positive reviews do not let this place down. Very good quality food at competitive prices with very friendly , helpful staff. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Amy and Ben welcome you from the moment you arrive. The food is fresh and excellent quality and very competitively priced. Nothing seems too much to do for this charming couple. They also remember your names the next time you visit. I have been coming here for the last 3 years or so now.
