Worth a visit

The food is really good, this place gets pretty popular. We came here on our first night at 6:45 pm and it was almost packed, many people came after us around 7pm trying to get a table and had to wait.

The food is cheap but the quality is poor, we had the yellow noodles as reccomended which were greasy and heavily soaked in soy sauce. We had high hopes so were very disappointed. The service was good, just a shame about the food.

The food here is fantastic and so cheap. We tried various ps dishes and they were all great. We were really disappointed when it was closed for our final dinner in Kuching!

Offering a range of freshly cooked and well seasoned local dishes at reasonable prices, there is very little to complain about.

The food is very good! I recommend fried noodles and fried rice. And also fresh juice! But the service is not very good. They are too slowly and they forget always to bring you somethings.. so you have to order again! But the staff is friendly and helpfull and I recommend this restaurant.

The food at Borneo delight is superb, and only improved when you discover just how little it costs. I ate here multiple times during my stay in Kuching- my only regret is that I did not discover it sooner. The restaurant itself is clean but certainly not luxury or flashy- it is ideal for those that desire tasty local food... More

We bypassed this place on our first night in town because it looked a little unappealing on the eye. But, due to inclement weather, we went here for a quick bite to eat, and we found that the food was really, really good and really, really cheap too. Best value in town.

Don't judge a book by it's cover and in this case don't judge the restaurant by it's somewhat uninviting interior, ready-to-fall-apart-menu and the ridiculously cheap prices. The best thing about this family run restaurant is the fact that everything is fresh and they are fully stocked. In most other places in Borneo they don't have this ingredient, they don't have...

Dropping by here for dinner after reading some great review and it was amazing. Had 3 meals (2 fried noodles & 1 fried rice) plus 2 ice lemon tea for drinks that in total only cost us RM15. What a humble & tasty dinner I had!Definitely will come back again!
