Excellent food

We had consistently superb food at a reasonable price here during our recent trip to Penang. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. Wine was always nicely chilled and we spent several evenings here during our stay at the Park Royal. We highly recommend.

This is my second holiday to Batu Ferringi and this gem of a restaurant does not disappoint. The signature dish is the Beef Rendang which is delicious and definitely worth a try and very reasonably priced. We stayed at the five star Rasa Sayang and it is surely a tribute to this little restaurant that so many guests end up... More

This place is a little gem. Whilst only small ( and closed on Wednesday), the food is terrific and the servings generous. The staff are a fun bunch of people who are only too happy to make suggestions and offer descriptions of food. We'll definitely return on our next visit to Penang.

Only small, but has very friendly staff and really tasty food. Live music "free and easy" on Fri/sat nights in the background creates a great atmosphere to sit and eat/drink. Cost is very reasonable and a lovely way to spend a Fri/Sat evening.

Visited the Living Room several times and just love the food. Great Sizzling meals and the Malaysian Chicken Curry is just super. Amy and Ben are the perfect hosts. Weekends you can enjoy jammin sessions with Ben and other musicians from all over the world. Great place to just chill. Prices are good and portions are just the right size.

This is my second visit. My first was just for drinks in the afternoon. Returned there again for dinner and food was simple but delicious. Price is fair too.

Visited this place twice during our holiday . Both occasions the food was superb. Beef Rendang and the Chicken Capitan are recommended and the Chardonnay was good. Could not fault the place and worked out about £18 for meals & a bottle of wine
