Description: The Junk is an eclectic collection of five establishments carefully cultivated within the confines of the heritage buildings of Wayang Street, Kuching. With the proprietors' personal curation of actual antiquities and memorabilia over the years, The Junk houses remnants from days gone by, each with their own eccentric story to tell. Since 2002, the award-winning Junk Restaurant specialises in the fusion of Italian, Western and Asian cuisines. They also offer an impressive list of handmade pizzas, even adding their own twist to conventional toppings. Whether it is an intimate table for two or a party of 12, Junk Restaurant has several dining areas to cater to your needs. Red Room started as an after dinner lounge area. It now serves as a karaoke lounge. In 2006, Junk Bar started as something more akin to a speakeasy. It would be easy to miss this unassuming bar accessible through a hole in the wall from Red Room. Don't let the narrow walkway and rambunctious regulars intimidate you as it is perfect for quieter nights out. Since 2008, Backstage has been one of the most popular night spots in Kuching. On weekends, resident DJs spin through the night. When crowded, it looks like a party in an antique shop. Be prepared to stand as the crowd pours in throughout the night. Choose your poison and dance the night away. If you want something milder, head next door to the newly renovated Living Room. The perfect blend of a lounge and an al-fresco garden, choose to sit by the water fountain or in the actual living room on the first floor overlooking it. Instagram thejunkkch

We wanted to treat our family to a nice meal in Kuching and they recommended the Junk. There were a shade over 30 of us in all ranging from pensioners to kids and overall everybody enjoyed the food. Of course Kuching is a fairly cheap place to eat, so a bill of £400 for 30 or so people including drinks... More

If you are going for the pizza, find another place. Its like eating cheese on cardboard. Service is marginal at best.

Service was terrible, over 2 hours to get our food and when we got it, it was cold! There are much better places in to eat in Kuching, try Bla, Bla, Bla or Top Spot both are excellent.

We had seen this restaurant on a TV programme and wanting to check it out. The ambiance is amazing so much weird and wonderful treasures. The rooms are small so it makes eating a little more special than a large open restaurant. . The food portions are large and served in over sized dishes. During our 9 days we almost... More

Lovely decor. Western food and great bar but very pricey. Still worth going to have a look through because the layout and artifacts are fabulous.

You'll need the light of your smartphone to see what you're eating, as it can be pretty dark in there. Generally a pleasant and interesting place, food is very good, staff pretty good. Over the years it has become trendy and popular, but the place has remained the same. Food portions are large, so only order a single dish and... More

The food here is delicious, but the portion sizes are a bit obscene. My dinner plate must have been at least 40 cms across and the lady at the table next to was sitting in front of a dish that looked like a serving platter. It will certainly taste good, but plan ahead to take at least half of it... More
