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

The best Rendang we have ever tasted. Live music makes for a great atmosphere. The wine is cheap here.

You can feel relaxed in this very open, friendly atmosphere. All dishes we tried are fresh and super delicious! We had been there for lunch and dinner. We really enjoy going there and experience your Guitar Music tonight. Well done! (I'm not english, hope to put the words correct!) Anne

IMO, it is overrated. 3☆ is adquate. Food was good, service seems friendly, ambiance reminds me of any seasonal seashore eateries. My wife wouldn't let me to take any photos, not having any worthwhile gallery items. Sorry for our disappointing review. BTW, it closes from 3 to 6pm, and CASH only. Please update!

This a relatively small but very well appointed cafe/bar. We had breakfast, dinners and casual drinks here and the service was always excellent. The staff are very friendly and take a pride in looking after their customers. The food is wonderful, you can have Chinese food, Indian food or Western food, we tried them all and were very pleased with... More
