Quality but expensive Chinese food

The dishes were well prepared, especially the sea cucumber. I was particularly impressed with the dessert we had. It was made from egg white, filled with a light bean paste and the dough was then cut up into ball shapes and deep fried. Then the balls were rolled in white sugar and served. Yummy!

The Heritage is in downtown Kuching & occupies 2 shopfronts in a row of business terrace style shops. It is obviously popular with the locals & was full the night we were there - reservations seem to be necessary. The ambience is nothing special - typical chinese lanterns, bright fluorescent lighting & noisy tables celebrating birthdays etc. So not for... More

Hands down- best Chinese food in Kuching. The Heritage never fails to impress- best dishes include suckling pig, Korean pancake and egg white with scallops and broccoli. BYO allowed. Decent service but you definitely go for the food

It was a very good restaurants and the staff were the former Thui Hua Lau restaurant staff including the kitchen staff. The restaurant serves very satisfying authentic Chinese dishes with a reasonable price.

Considered one of the better medium-range Chinese 'fine dining' restaurant in Kuching. Portioning are generous and quality of cooking are well above average. Freshness and variety are assured. Would suggest that you make reservation for seats. But you can try your luck to get a table for dinner without reservation. The seating capacity of the restaurant are kept to the... More

The Heritage is among the top 3 of Kuching's best Chinese restaurants - it has been around for many years. The chef used to be at the old Tsui Hua Lau, a former top restaurant which closed down many years ago. The food is always excellent and the service and prices are pretty fair. The only two issues I have... More

We enjoyed a good dinner here. Amazing, all the dishes were delicious. Price is affordable. However, it's very packed during weekends. Remember to call and book in advance. It's two shoplots combined into one restaurant. There're outside sitting as well, if one prefers that. Highly recommended to come here for meals. (Serving staff not very friendly)

One of the best places for dinner, and so popular that you should probably book 1-2 weeks in advance. Easy to find, and reasonable parking availability.
