As you walk in the exotically Chinese grocer shop entrance you feel like you're going into an opium den or a local brothel, not an eating place. There are narrow walkways and corridors, steep wooden unstable stairways and the place is decorated by antique junk of all sorts.
However the cooking from the smallish kitchen hits you and the helpful and friendly staff go out of their way to cater to you - seating can be on the ground floor (very limited) upstairs in the front, or backstage around the back.
The food menu and drinks menu hasn't changed since it opened some 14 or 15 years ago by Sibu-born now Kuching resident couple, Roselyn and George Ling - him of Oz trained and catered for Hollywood films like Fine Line's The Sleeping Dictionary (Jessica Alba) and IFC's The Intended (Globe winner Janet McTeer).
The food is excellent, fusion between oriental and western, and there's a wide variety to pick from. Prices are reasonable albeit towards the high end. Atmosphere is to die for, and when there's a good crowd it can be really jumping. Reservations are needed.
After dinner, indulge at the Backstage (a pub/live band some nights) and meet Kuching's in-crowd and beautiful people.
