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 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.

Old sewing machines are used as table legs/stand. All the furnishing in this place are made of recycled materials. Kodos to the owners. Think home-cooked food with live music & songs. Not bad.

After reading the reviews on here, we decided to give Living Room a go & we weren't disappointed. We had a couple of ciders with our char kway teow & samosas. It was lovely food & a great atmosphere with live music. We got great tips on where else to go/what to do/ what to eat.
