We selected this place as it was rated number 2 in Batu Ferringhi. I thought the food was really pretty average, and much pricier than other places I felt were better. This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and is located on the main street of Batu Ferringhi. It serves Chinese, Malaysian and Indian food. My husband had fish and chips... More

Third time on a row, we had a fantastic evening at the Living Room. Gorgeous food combined with a charming owner and her staff. Prices are in balance with the quality , just like the owner is. This is a must to go to.

We found this as number two according to trip advisor, we also went to the number one (Andrews Kampung), we think as regards to the food this should be number one, the other restaurant had a real character in charge and he probably made the difference and got the higher rating! Both are well worth a visit!

The Living Room is one of the many restaurants along the Main Street of Batu Feringghi and apart from the garden fronting the Main road there is nothing to distinguish it from the others. However if you are looking for GREAT food that is prepared fresh, cooked like mom used to cook it is the ideal place to have dinner... More

Meal are good, but could be better. Environment are awesome, peaceful, a right place to give yourself a rest after exhaustive working week. Service might need improvement, the owner are less friendly, look selective, staff are great.

Wonderful atmosphere in this friendly restaurant with excellent fresh cooked food. Jamming session nights at the weekend make an added feel with a casual attitude. The food is reasonably priced and always superbly prepared with that special Penang touch. Good choice on the menu. The owners Amy and Ben run the place very efficiently and must give special mention to... More

This was our second visit to this wonderful island and to this restaurant. The food is freshly prepared and is delicious. The menu caters to Western dishes also, however the malaysian authentic dishes are really worth a try. Food is extremely well priced and the hosts are really welcoming. Definitely going back before we head home.

Saturday night in Batu Ferringhi a bit of rain about and I'd done the night market the night before. What to do? I heard music in the distance. I found this oasis of friendliness. Ben, the owner, was sitting at the bar at his laptop selecting music to play to his guests, his wife Amy was busy making sure we... More

This is a small restaurant which serves western and peranakan food. Food is ok but the serving size was small for the price.
