After enjoying a lot of Sarawakian Chinese food like kolo mee, belacan noodles and so forth, we requested our van driver, Vincent, to take us for native cuisine. Without hesitation, he took us to the.Dyak. I fell in love with this small yet very welcoming and comfortable restaurant. The decor is truly of native charm. They even have explanation for... More

We enjoyed a lunch of local food eaten at the Sarawak cultural village and assumed this meal would be better after reading the reviews. While the staff were helpful and friendly I do not feel the meal matched expectations and on balance I felt the meal was more enjoyable at the cultural village.

It is a must to try out the authentic food of the local tribe- Dayak. Everything on the menu with a star is a must try! The food is simply heavenly! The special Tuak ice cream is a must not miss.

I had great expectation of this place. Food was ok, but nothimg special. Staff was making an impression that they would be very happy if we would leave asap. Location is nothing to speak about.

Food here is fantastic. Probably price wise... needs to be reviewed. I don't know what's missing. But... yeah, I'll come back... but not so soon i guess... please come and try it out. Authentic local food.

Nice atmosphere but not the best food and a bit expensive. One main dish is around 25-35 RM. There are better and cheaper restaurants in Kuching. Kitchen was closing at 8:00 pm, so be there on time.

The ambience and decor was nice. But I found the food very average-tasting, and not too different from some of the Chinese dishes that I cook.

Attended in a group of 11 people, where we let the restaurant's manager select our banquet options. Food was great, service friendly and all at excellent value. They don't serve any other wine than the traditional tuak wine. So it is worth asking if you can byo. The BBQ pork dish was my favourite. A great meal of traditional tastes.
