This is a lovely friendly café, the food is very good and freshly prepared. The setting is lovely, almost cosy! Prices are reasonable and the staff will explain any item on the menu and offer suggestions on what to try of you ask. Lovely café!!!!

We visited this little restaurant twice recently - and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is tucked away between the Ferringhi Food Garden and Helenas. It is overseen by, presumably, the owner, who takes the time to speak to all of the diners. The menu offers a choice of Malaysian and Chinese food, with a nod to the 'Western' palate... More

I took a little risk and booked the Living Room for a international group of 32 people without having eaten there before - just based on the good feedback in Tripadvisor. We loved it. Excellent local food combined with a super fast and very personal service - and very affordable as well. Thanks for hosting us, Amy. We will be... More

We ate here from recommendations from friends but as it was a Wednesday night, and they were closed we ended up eating next door at Helena's which we preferred. The Living room was nice and great value for money and I would recommend this place to friends.

Read such good reviews here. Went there hungry and really eager to taste all the highly rated food. Sorely disappointed. Food portion was so small. We left hungry after finishing everything we ordered. Quality was average. Decor was interesting and looked like a nice cosy place to have a drink or chit chat. But not for the food. Penang food...

Nice little cafe in tourist strip of Batu ferringhi. Good selection, special chicken curry and stir fry green veg were amazing! Friendly service and decent ice coffee, obviously more expensive then local places but well worth it.
