Cozy little place with nice atmosphere and live music, you can choose place inside or on terrace. Staff and food made us feel like home. Make sure to order starter and main dish to make you belly full.

We went here based on Tripadvisor reviews. Wednesday was closed we we went back the next night. I ordered an orange juice, and when it came and was clearly watered down I called the waitress to enquire if I was correct. She told me they only use 2 oranges per glass so of course the rest is water!! What? I... More

This review probably isnt fair of me to write. I wasnt feeling great so no food would have appealed to me. However, my partner was fine and he, like me, thought the food was distinctly average. The waitresses are really lovely, the service was great, its beautifully decorated and the ambience is spot on. Try it for yourselves!

We had walked past the Living Room a few times throughout our stay in Batu Ferringhi, thinking not too much of its exterior, however after looking at TripAdvisor and seeing it at number 1 we felt we should really try. I am so glad we did. End to end the experience was brilliant. Little things like having a sleeve around... More

Great, home style cooked Malaysian food in a nice, relaxed setting. Lovely owner and staff who take the time to chat with you. Music (jam sessions) entertaining and add to the whole experience. Would dine here again.

Went there twice while staying in Penang. Asian food is good the traditional Nasi goreng was the bomb. Didn't go much on the westerner food, chicken schnitzel was battered not crumbed and it was a lot more expensive than the Asian food. Friday and Saturday nights are jam nights so that added a bit of casual easy relaxed atmosphere. They... More

Nice food, friendly staff and it seems some regulars who the staff knew, sadly our children are a bit picky so their food was wasted.
