Went for a dinner, and found this restaurant. Absolutely No "Junk food". I got a very delicious baked shrimp. My family was also very happy, the portions was big, and my two big sons said they were filled :-) They had a good choice of beers, not all that thin chinese ricebeer.

Nothing special to write home about in our opinion and thought portions were unusually large. Also, not much atmosphere, maybe better in the bar but we didn't try there. The 3 meals all arrived at different times, which is strange really given this is an upmarket spot.

Busy restaurant with many cosy rooms. Great italian food in the center of Kuching. The seafood risotto is delicious.

I've been here 2 times with friends and they never disappoint me. I ordered Sirloin steak (RM58) for 8oz steak, medium with mushroom sauce (requested to be served separately). I'm fully satisfied with the meal (i'm quite fussy with my steak) and price. My friends meal looks satisfying too.Overall, nice place, good staff and I will definitely come again. Thank... More

The 'Junk' is one of my favorite restaurants. Although it has changed a little over the past ten years it still seems to cling to its old charm and curious collection of antiquities. I do believe it could be teetering on losing its quaint ambiance, as it has expanded into the second building to allow for client numbers which gives... More

We dined here with friends on our last night in Kuching. Location is walking distance to the waterfront promenade, and interior décor is full of interesting junk. Food was great, with large portions. The Fisherman's Basket is an enormous platter of fish and seafood -- enough for two to three people to share. The pizza, gnocchi and lemongrass chicken were... More

Really out there decor, the whole place is filled with old interesting paraphernalia, lots of talking points. Lively and very cosmopolitan, the staff were very attentive and the food was just great. Loved the folding sink....

Been here several times, 30s crowd and above when I've been in, good company, nice feel to the bar. The bar itself is long and thin so easily feels crowded but seating area close by.

This place is existing forever and also evolving to a must see in Kuching! Started of with a small restaurant famous for huge seafood platter and lamp shank. Now quite a big place, but still cozy. A must try nowadays is the Angelhair pasta and the duck salad. The inside decoration shows attention to detail. Service is very good. It... More
