This place is always amazing. The beef rendang is one of the best on the island. Great food, great service, and a few nice pieces of art available for sale. A must visit.

Another quaint family run business who take special care of their guests. We went there on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Excellent food and prices. Please add to your list of places to eat while in this area.

We stayed in Batu Ferringhi for a week and ate at the living room almost every single day as the food was that good. Amy is a fantastic cook and an excellent host. She made the best beef rendang I have ever tasted as well as a vegetarian laksa which was explosive in flavour. For desert I couldn't go past... More

We ate here a few times when we cam 2 years ago and it was a must on our visit this time. Amy greets you like old friends and the food is still fantastic, try the salt and pepper squid, the beef rendang and the sizzling chicken for a good combination. If you have kids then the chocolate milkshakes are... More

We dropped into this establishment after reading the reviews on T/A. We were staying at the park royal and it was a short walk to the west. We ordered pork ribs and sizzling beef. The pork was disappointing ..it was over cooked and didn't resemble ribs at all...to top it off it was served with fries and a little salad.... More
