Batu Feringgi

Bayu Senja is home to most of Batu Feringghi's trendier backpacker hangouts, like Sunset Bistro and Lab Beach Bar. These are probably the only places in town with real beach-bar atmospheres, and offer dishes priced in the affordable 5-40 ringgit range.

Back on the main road you'll find Guan Guan Restoran serving up dishes from a detailed Chinese menu, with the most expensive dish of sizzling fish on a hotplate costing just 20 ringgit. The friendly Indian owner of well-priced Helena Cafe next door mainly serves Indian dishes but also breakfasts and some Western food.

The main road offers plenty of more upmarket alternatives, mostly Chinese seafood, north Indian and Arabian places, as well as the in-house restaurants of the flash hotels. For a memorable splurge, Lone Pine Resort which is managed by the E&O hosts the 1941-established Bungalow Restaurant. It really is an old bungalow, and they really have got pine trees! The traditional menu hasn't changed in decades.

Batu Feringghi offers little in the way of nightlife. Bars in the hotels and resorts probably offer the best spots for a spot of drinking with friends. Outside of that, Lab Beach Bar, Sunset Bistro and the flash-looking Zippy Bar opposite the Park Royal are open till late.
