We had read about Living Room in the Lonely Planet guide and it didn't let us down. The lady who owns the bar/restaurant is lovely and welcoming. We ate here four times. It has a really nice feel to the place. Food is excellent and so cheap. Would definitely recommend it!

If you're travelling to the Batu Ferringhi, you don't want to miss visiting this restaurant! The atmosphere is great and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I would particularly recommend the beef kapitan and the sizzling beef/chicken dishes. Much like everywhere in Malaysia, the food is also fantastic value. We visited the restaurant twice for dinner and on both... More

This is a great little food find in Batu Ferrenghi. Down the road from the Park Royal Resort. The food is absolutely delicious. Definitely try the Kapitan curry, it's a Penang curry. Real funky feel, retro and recycled furniture, the tables are old sewing tables. There was a little band playing cool acoustic music, a girl who sounded like Nora... More

Returned here twice for the sizzling beef and garlic greens with steamed rice. The best sizzling beef we've ever had anywhere. Small restaurant but well patronised, next door was empty and we waited for a seat so that tells you a story.

After reading reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to try this restaurant on a recent visit to Penang. We turned up on a Wednesday but unfortunately they are closed on a Wednesday. Luckily we managed to return a few nights later, within a couple of minutes we were entertained by a procession of monkeys walking along the wires across the road.... More

I really liked the feel of this place, but it was their food that was just outstanding. We had dinner here on our first night and our last night in Penang and everything we tried was wonderfully fresh and so delicious. Their vegie Curry Kapitan was amazing.

This restaurant is conveniently located just at the end of the night market. The seating is all outdoors, the Malaysian menu is cheap enough ($2 beers, $5 wine, $3-$7 entrees), the service is great (and the servers have great English), and the food is tasty. If you're looking for a relaxed meal outdoors, you've found the right place.
