We ate here with a group of about 13 people. The food was lovely. Salads were nice and the prawn and asparagus entrée was great. Main meals are truly huge. There was only a limited selection of cold white wine (despite a reasonable wine list, many of which were out of stock). The service was prompt and friendly. Décor is... More

The ambiance was impressive, spotted antique furniture placed strategically which I wouldn't consider as junk. Staff were friendly and attentive, very accommodating too. Had medium rib eye steak and it was prepared as I expected it, medium and most importantly, juicy. Had salmon salad too, which was really a good serving portion.

Visited this place twice in 3 days whilst in Kuching. Excellent party venue! We were with 22 women and ended up in the back area (not visible from the front of the pub), where there was an excellent band playing. Make sure you check with the staff when entering to ask if there's anything going on, we found out by... More

This cafe is a great place if you want to find a western place. Nice beer, great burgers! Nice people and the atmosphere is awesome. It is an old English rock cafe with a lot of old stuff on the walls. Great place if you want something different then rice or noodles

We only popped in for drinks, but the table service took an age and the drinks were very expensive for the area! Really good band though and nice atmosphere

We've eaten at many places in Kuching during our stay and this was the most expensive and also the most tasteless meal I've had! I had the vegetable lasagne (not recommended). I can't comment on the other dishes but I expected a lot more for the price.

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.
