Last in Penang four years ago. Living Room was a favourite of ours then, so a return was called for. Like last time it did not disappoint. Good food and very friendly owner (and staff alike). At the time of our visit the resort was very quiet at night, with some restaurants having only a few (and some zero) customers.... More

Very good food, frequented by lots of Brits. When they have entertainment it gets full early. Good service and friendly staff.

Having read a few recommendations to eat here, hubby & I did just that last night. The place is small but very atmospheric with great service by the really helpful & friendly ladies serving. We didn't order loads but what we had was terrific, we're quite new to Malaysian food so asked about a couple of dishes. I had a... More

Lovely food, good menu and if you wish a little variation on something they are obliging, friendly and pleasant service. They occasionally have music jams in the evening, brilliant and fun.

The atmosphere and friendliness of the staff is first rate. A real wooden Bar and home made tables from antique sewing machines and felled trees along with numerous plants make for a very home-spun casual dining experience. The food is reasonably priced and very good hawker style. Ben and Amy make their patrons feel at home with their friendliness and... More

We decided to try the Living Room restaurant last night after reading lots of positive reviews on TA. On arrival the place is quite small and 'rustic' looking but was already busy, we were asked if we had booked (which is probably advisable if there is more than two in your party) anyway we were shown to a nice table....

The Living Room is a small but perfectly formed restaurant that punches far above its weight. We had stopped in for a beer one evening and got chatting with the charismatic owner Ben. He recommended a veggie dish to me that was not on the menu so we came back a few days later to eat. My veggie laksa (noodle... More

A very friendly restaurant and great food especially the fish. We ate here twice and could have eaten here every night but thought we should explore other places
