Balkanico Pizza is, to me, hands down, the most authentic hand-made pizza in Kuching. Our pizzaiolo (fancy word for pizza-maker hehe) who goes by the name of Aleksander hails all the way from Montenegro, Southeast Europe. I love how Aleksander makes the dough from scratch,...kneading the dough with strength - it comes out from the oven as a perfect thin crunchy crust. Fresh from the oven, the pizza is amazing- from the texture, to the cheese used, and the freshness of the ingredients, it's a culinary heaven for the tongue. The greatest highlight to me is the home-made pesto sauce - this blended green basil mixture complements the pizza perfectly! This pesto has such a strong garlicky taste, it simply made the pizza stand out immediately. He makes the pesto with freshest ingredients daily. If you are a lover of garlic and strong spices, you can't miss this pizza with its pesto. It's too good. In my life, I've never had pizza with a stronger garlic tang. For those who aren't really fans of garlic however, you could always request for lesser or no pesto at all. Located behind the Fairland Hidden Bar, this rustic looking area makes for a most picturesque spot. If you are in Kuching, this is definitely a must try.More

Lovely atmosphere and great pizza. We had a pepperoni pizza to share and it was only 25RM - about £5. Beers are about £1.20, so would highly recommend it

The food was delicious and the service good. Just a nice place to sit and watch the world go by with a cold beer in hand.

This isn’t really a restaurant, more of a street stall with seating, but who cares, if you like hand made thin crust pizza, this is the place. We demolished one and ordered two more. The pepperoni is fantastic. Definitely recommend.

The cafe is opposite a Chinese temle, it is actually a performance stage for that Chinese temple, so just look after the temple then you will find the cafe. The pizza is good and best to serve with a local tuak.

I had the beef pepperoni pizza (25RM) with fries and Vodka lime. Delicious thin crust, garlicky pizza. Would recommend if you’re seeking a pizza fix.

As others have mentioned, blink and you'll miss Balkanico - we walked past on our way to the food festival, but our son was still hungry on the way back, so we stopped off, bought a couple of beers and sodas from the offie and...then ordered a pizza. Freshly prepared, in front of our eyes, it was delicious. Thin crust has to be the way to go - more ingredients, less dough...More

The restaurant is not ready to find we passed the place 3 times before we saw it. It's on front of the big bottle shop. So you order your pizza directly from the chef. Drinks you buy yourself in the bottle shop. They have a...large choice of international beer an other drinks. The pizza was very good. Large and extra thin. Definitely recommendable for a short snack.More

Odd set up but it works! Buy your drinks first then come outside to order your pizza! We had Margherita, pepperoni, vegetarian and meat! Loved the thin base and the toppings were super👏
