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

A few friends and I went to Junk after dinner because we heard it was a good spot for drinks. I know people talk about this place as a restaurant as well, but we did not have any food here, nor was food being served when we got here around 10PM or so. I will say that this is a... More

The seafood platter is highly recommended! Huge plate of seafood with more fresh seafood (fish/prawns/soft shelled crabs/squid/onion rings) than fries for just RM40. Really charming ambience and nice place to hang out and fill up after a long day of trekking through national parks. The ribeye steak (RM58), duck pizza and beef soup were also very good! For small-average sized... More

We always look forward to this restaurant during our Kuching travels. Great pizza and pasta. We go early and get a big table upstairs so tm that our kids don't bother anybody. They are usually open by 5 or 6.

Fantastic food and ambience. If you fancy big portion food, this is the place to go. I just love the Fisherman Basket...fresh assortment of seafood to share.

Charming old world shop charm set up to please tourists for whom prices are probably reasonable. By local standards you need deeper pockets. Service is affable and the wine list while there is nothing under 100 Rm is extensive and well organised. Salads and side dishes were excellent but the duck was a tough stringy slab struggling under overcooked sauce.... More

The food is really great and is served in oversized plates. Best pizza in Kuching town. Good choice of beverages and delicious cakes too. Add to that that the Junk's decor is awsome.

This is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Kuching for Western food. Gordon Ramsay would have a fit if he saw the massive plates that the food is served on, but the fact is that the food is good! The upstairs restaurant is quiet and relaxing, whereas the downstairs bar can get lively and loud. Interesting....

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.
