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.

We ate here last night, and ordered the spaghetti and the organic chicken. After a few minutes the spaghetti was served. The waiter leaned over the far end of the table ( belly flat on the table. Big table, short waiter..) and handed me the plate. I looked surprised because of this strange way of serving and then he realized... More

Great atmosphere and decor in the restaurant and busy with customers. Had bruschetta for starters which was a massive portion perfect for sharing. Followed by the lobster pasta and the lamb shank, both of which were tasty and presented on huge plates. Desserts were ok, quite sweet with not as much flavor as there should be. Service was patchy -... More

We had the pizza and fish and chips. I think the fish was frozen as it was thin. The pizza was ok and arrived after I had eaten my meal. The fruit juices were fresh and delicious. The atmosphere was modern and junky.

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.
