Location and atmosphere are cool, food is extremely good (u can choose among Japanese and Thai cuisine). Took the royal beef, was well cooked and served with crunchy beans and steamed rice. Cocktails are also good and well served.

The indoor restaurant and outdoor space is simply beautiful. As you step out of the elevator, you know you are in for a treat. I love food, esp. Tai and I can say I LOVED THE TAI food at the Living Room

The Living Room has the BEST WINE selection in West Africa! Every detail of the Living Room was well thought out - from the food to the table linens! Staff very professional and efficient.

This restaurant provides a nice selection of Asian dishes in a very nice environment. The staff are polite but not gushing with courtesy. Be prepared to pay for the convenience of well prepared Asian cuisine.

This place is on the fancy side. Ladies, be sure to bring a sweater if you will sit inside, it is highly air-conditioned. The Japanese menu has great but quite pricey sushi and other food. Most rolls are $7 to $8 for three pieces. You can easily throw down $50 to have some sushi. Try the Living room roll for... More

My fave is the appetizer, the money bag (ask for it). Fave meal is the "sizzling" shrimp or chicken (can't ever remember the official name for this fun and tasty dish). The Livingroom noodles is also a great selection. Very romantic and affordable... The service is GREAT...

The Living room is the place to go whether you fancy an elegant indoor dining experience or a more casual dining outdoor one(during the dry season). The curries and stir fries are fantastic and the seared tuna exceptionally good. Juan (the restaurant manager) is amazing. Keep up the great work

From about 10 restaurants I've visitied in Monrovia, The Living Room at the Royal Hotel is the one I am returning to most often (it's on 4th floor - use elevator in the lobby).

The Living Room lounge bar and restaurant was designed and created to offer an exclusive and unique dinning experience to our guest. Enjoy the early opening hours on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with melodic notes from our baby grand piano in any of the four lounges and end the night with classical jazz tunes from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Betty Carter, John Coltrane and Brad Mehldhau. From Thursdays to Sundays we up our tempo to cool chillout lounge hits. Headed by Chef Rentato, our Sushi is renowned for its freshness and creativity. Our salmon, mackerel and other foreign ingredients being flown in from Brussels weekly while our Tuna, red snapper and other local fish being sourced right here in Liberia from the waters of the Atlantic. The Thai cuisine, headed by Chef Qui is a burst of tropical flavors and colors, maintaining our plates to true and authentic Thai recipes. We also boast the widest wine selection list in Liberia with 26 different wines from more than 8 wine regions in Spain. In addition to our wines we also serve 18 different beers from around the world. We hope you enjoy your dinning experience with us!
