Due to recession over the years, the food portion here has somewhat 'shrank' and price went up, but they still serve good food with good service. My friends and I love going here once in a while to pamper ourselves. Great hang out venue, great ambient. Don't forget to try their shakes!

Having a craving for burgers after a long drizzly afternoon, my husband and I stumbled across this place on TA. It turned out to be better than expected and really cheap. We especially liked the Oreo cheesecake and decent coffee. Whole bill under rm50 so we were happy. Well worth a visit if you've had your fill of local food.

On celebrating mother's day, we went to Elephant cafe. I decided to try their grilled meat - lamb, chicken with sausage. As expected, the sausage was horrible. It was highly processed. For the price, you cant really expect much...as they say, you get what you paid for. The quality of the lamb was lacking. The meat was somewhat chewy. I... More

The price is pretty good for the 'western' food. You get pasta, grilled meat plus chunky fries and a small number of local dishes. I thought the quality of the food was pretty decent for local Kuching standard. I dont find it easy to get non-local meal thats decent and this one is. My grilled maryland chicken was not swimming...

by Kuching standards, this place serves up decent 'western' style dishes. It's situated in a very unassuming, even scruffy, part of town but once inside the ambience is actually very nice. Staff attentive and cheery, service prompt and prices reasonable. Like the minimalist decor but felt the rather cheap looking tables and chairs lets it down slightly. Overall though, it's... More
