Quirky restaurant for our last night in Kuching. My seafood platter was huge, enough for 2 really, pizza for my so and bolognese for daughter. This restaurant was recommended to us and we expected Asian food but we weren't disappointed as our meals were very good.

Food was very good. We had the lemongrass chicken, it prepared and cooked perfectly. It's a very big, busy restaurant. Suitable for big groups as well as more intimate meals. We ate there for dinner but they seem to open for lunch too

The service was correct, but nothing further. The food was too expensive in comparison to its quality. The farmers chicken was tough and dry and the saus came right out of a bottle, it was just warmed up barbecue saus. The childrens' food was ok, but what can you do wrong with deep fried fish and chips? The plates were... More

Nicely decorated place with really good western food. The steak, even though not the cheapest was really worth it. Service was pleasant.

Although quite pricey (compared to Malaysian standards), the food is worth it. Got a wonderful mushroom soup and a salmon sashimi. My friends got pasta, and loved it as well. Pasta was 28 MYR, so not too pricey. 10/10 would go again.

A trendy bar and restaurant serving drinks and western food. I had a calamari salad and G&T - food was very tasty, if a bit pricey compared to local restaurants, would recommend to couples or friends looking for a nice dinner out. Staff were attentive and friendly also :) Would love to try out the backstage and live music section,... More

Atmosphere was good and pleasant to have dinner there. Main downsides were the delay between everyone's meals arriving, my husband had finished his main before my daughters (aged 4) pizza had even arrived. She had therefore stuffed her face with garlic bread and my chips by the time hers arrived. Like most places here, no kids menu and no half... More

Service not friendly. Someone was smoking in the kitchen and quality of food below average. Pizza was tasteless and the organic chicken was served with thick heated up bbq sauce from a bottle. I recommend the owner to really step up the performance as the restaurant has potential.

Good food for a very reasonable price. It offers a more western menu but still delicious. There was a few locals eating here when we visited which was a good sign the foods good. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good cheap meal.

Description
The Junk is an eclectic collection of five establishments carefully cultivated within the confines of the heritage buildings of Wayang Street, Kuching. With the proprietors' personal curation of actual antiquities and memorabilia over the years, The Junk houses remnants from days gone by, each with their own eccentric story to tell. Since 2002, the award-winning Junk Restaurant specialises in the fusion of Italian, Western and Asian cuisines. They also offer an impressive list of handmade pizzas, even adding their own twist to conventional toppings. Whether it is an intimate table for two or a party of 12, Junk Restaurant has several dining areas to cater to your needs. Red Room started as an after dinner lounge area. It now serves as a karaoke lounge. In 2006, Junk Bar started as something more akin to a speakeasy. It would be easy to miss this unassuming bar accessible through a hole in the wall from Red Room. Don't let the narrow walkway and rambunctious regulars intimidate you as it is perfect for quieter nights out. Since 2008, Backstage has been one of the most popular night spots in Kuching. On weekends, resident DJs spin through the night. When crowded, it looks like a party in an antique shop. Be prepared to stand as the crowd pours in throughout the night. Choose your poison and dance the night away. If you want something milder, head next door to the newly renovated Living Room. The perfect blend of a lounge and an al-fresco garden, choose to sit by the water fountain or in the actual living room on the first floor overlooking it.
