I'd rate this as one of the best restaurants I've eaten in. Every dish is different to any other food you've eaten and everything we tried rated highly. Price is right too. They have a great chef who is innovative and clever. It's also alongside the next best 2 restaurants in Kuching, Bal Bla Bla, and The Living Room. I... More

We went here a few times during our 6 night stay in Kuching. We loved the bar at the back just for a drink. The decor is great. We also ate here once and were very impressed. The food was fantastci and large portions. I had seafood risotto and it was delicious.

I loved this place as I could choose a Chianti off the wine list to go with my pizza with rocket on top - I felt like I was in Europe again (I live in Brunei) so it was much appreciated! We nearly sat downstairs and then decided to go upstairs and sat in the front carpeted room. It was... More

Some off the food was - just - okay but definitely not worth anything like the RM30-40 for most dishes. The garlic bread was good. The lemongrass chicken was ridiculously strongly flavoured but its accompanying salad was nice. The roast chicken came smothered in a nasty red sauce and any flavour in the vegetables was drowned in oil and pepper.... More

The bad side is Poor communication skills of the staffs. And my favorite dish is the grill salmon served with crispy vege, but i am a bit disappointed this time because the portion become smaller compare to last time which is not value for money.

My husband and I ordered the calamari salad and the angle hair. The food was absolutely delicious but the portions were quite small considering the prices. We were both hungry after our meals.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. The food is fantastic but the service is typical of Malaysia, a little slow. The food sure makes up for it tho!

As you walk in the exotically Chinese grocer shop entrance you feel like you're going into an opium den or a local brothel, not an eating place. There are narrow walkways and corridors, steep wooden unstable stairways and the place is decorated by antique junk of all sorts. However the cooking from the smallish kitchen hits you and the helpful... More

The decor in here is phenomenal, It creates a really chilled and relaxed atmosphere. After a day checking out the sights around Kuching and seeing the Orangutans, this is right up there in the ranks of good places to go for a beer. Food is aimed toward the western market, nice to remind you of home, but not the greatest... More

This would definitely count as our best dining experience in Kuching. The decor is really unique with an eclectic mix of wooden artifacts, pottery, paintings, framed mini books etc. We chose the Ceasar salad, pizza, pasta and cheesecake and all of these were of really good quality. The prices look on the higher side but the portions are quite generous.... More
