This is a relatively small, family run restaurant on the Main Street in Batu Ferringhi, on Penang Island. The food is terrific, all cooked freshly and guaranteed no MSG! The owners are very friendly and welcome all guests personally. On Friday and Saturday nights they have a jamming session where locals play music for the diners, which is great fun.... More

after reading glowing reports , we were a bit let down by this little café.the staff were very nice, but the food was just ok, the pricing was a bit over what you should pay in penang, for this style of dining.ok but not great.

Fantastic food friendly staff. My wife and I shared sizzling chicken and beef rending, both of which were delicious, followed by fried ice cream which was a big hit with all. We will definitely be back. A must try.

Once again on our recent visit to Penang went to Living Room and saw Amy & Ben who were welcoming to us. How they remember sooo many faces I do not know. The food was beautiful and even my fussy daughter found something to eat which is a real feat. This restaurant is more than just a restaurant it is... More

It may be your "cliche" aussie-style expat hole in the wall cafe complete with Bruce and his guitar, but don't let that detract you from the tasty and delicious local food being served here. We would recommend any of the curries and noodle dishes. It is busy so show up early and be prepared to wait a bit for your... More

Read some great reviews about this place and expected great food, so was really disappointed. This is quite a rustic restaurant which looks good from outside because it has lots of lush plants and is situated beside a few nice restaurants. It is, however, not a really comfortable dining experience with old fold out wooden chairs. Was concerned that if... More
