This little cafe on the street sells good burgers and wraps, as well as other Arabic food. The food was delicious and quick to be served.

Since the last review, we had been back to your place FOUR times. First 2 times, you were out of cheese (kids wanted pizzas), 3rd time you were out of pepperoni (kids still wanted pizzas) and 4th time you were out of rice!! We were terribly frustrated to say the least! How do you expect to build a loyal base... More

You have a decent outfit there. My family and I have stopped by a couple of times since 'discovering' your place a week ago despite being locals. However, one feedback tho : your kitchen seems to be always out of something. First it was beef (still no beef, I believe) and then no cheese. We brought kids whose palate is... More

I would not go down to Kuching for an Arabic food, but this restaurant did change my mind. They serve most of the common Arabic food. My favorite is lamb kebab and Arabic rice with chicken. This restaurant is just a walk away from waterfront. You need to be there at about 7pm if you trying to get yourself the... More

Having lived in Kuching for over a year and a half, a few people had told us about this place called Hubbaba's. We soon found out where it was but every time we visited it, it was closed. This is mainly because we usually tried to visit at around 10pm after a skinful of beers! In the UK a place... More

Good lamb kebabs and falafel, little on expensive side. Service was quick, but perfect change from rice and noodles.

Sometimes it is a challenge to find good, affordable, interesting vegetarian food while traveling, but this place sure hit the spot. The veggie burger and falafel sandwiches are delicious. I see a lot of reviews mentioning a lack of flavor in the meat items - I don't know if this is true, but the veggie items are perfect. I tried... More

Kuching has so many eating places that are simply mediocre, and this i'm afraid, is another to add to the list. Had the lamb kebab, which was devoid of good flavours, and the meat was not lean enough. The pita bread was bland and both this and the meat was not hot.Somehow the whole dish didnt taste particularly fresh. When... More
