Favourite restaurant in Batu Feringghi! What a great mix of food, working our way through the menu and love it all. Amy & Ben are warm and friendly hosts, and will stop for a chat, they know the island and where to go and explore....Try the Salt & Pepper Squid, or Thai Style Fish *amazing*More

Been here many times before the pandemic and have rated it highly before. Amy and Ben have reopened the restaurant now that visitors are returning to Batu Ferringhi, which is great to see. The welcome is second to none despite the masks, which are obligatory...for the staff but not for visitors. The food quality is excellent. My prawn capitan curry was delicious and the beef rendang was full flavoured zinging with Malaysian spices. The menu is shorter than I remember but there is plenty of choice. If you are looking for somewhere for an inexpensive meal with a great welcome then the Living Room is recommended.More

A cool and friendly place to go for drinks or food, but the food in particular is excellent and prepared using fresh ingredients.... absolutely delicious. The owner is brilliant - Friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth, with a great gift for looking after her guests...with an easy manner. Definitely one to visit again and try more dishes on the menu. A mix of Chinese/ Malay fusion - cannot fault it. Highly recommend a visit.More
