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

Junk Restaurant is never overrated. Staff are wonderful and the serving is generous. To make it even better, the food taste great. Brought my wife here and tried the sirlion steak (medium) and left satisfied. The mushroom sauce was on top of this world, and the steak was simply the best.

This is such a cool place. The rustic feel and look of the place with all the junks around makes it looks really amazing. Went to have a chill out with my fiancee and tried your tiramisu cake. It was amazing. The food portions that i see on the other tables was huge and I was glad that I didn't... More

excellent place to dine. however, you must come early or make a reservation first to avoid disappoinment. i had a medium rare steak and it was perfect. served with simple salad and this weird mashed tapioca. the tapioca tasted weird but my steak was good. definitely will be coming back again.

The Junk is one of those few places that is consistent in their good food quality and service. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Nice place to just slowly enjoy your food and chill. It's a regular place for me and my family. Great place for young and old...be it with family, friends, solo, for that business date, as a couple...

The quatro formaggio is one of the tastiest pizza's I have eaten. I must say that my family and I love all the Junk's pizza's on offer. The restaurant is full of 'Junk' but the cool thing is that your eye always catches something of interest. This is a must visit for anyone coming to Kuching. You need to make... More

Great ambience with loads of trinkets and antiques surrounding you while you dine in their huge-portion, delightful dishes. Prices are reasonable. This place offers you something different. It may look small from the outside, but once entered it will simply amaze you!
