Must order: (recommended per person) Coffee (kopi c ), 2 soft boiled eggs, 2 kaya and butter toast (roti kahwin) And then finish off with a bowl of Laksa Enjoy your breakfast! Just ask to share table. Don't stand and wait. :)

Some say the standard of their laksa has dropped, well this was my first visit and I didn't have an earlier benchmark to compare. That said, I was at Chong Choon's Poh Lam only 2 days back and I say Choon Hui's laksa is better, but of course taste is somewhat subjective. The rich gravy at Choon Hui packed more... More

Kuching has a lot of breakfast places this one stands out. The Laksa is fantastic. You need to keep your eyes open to get a table the place is very busy. The popiah (local spring roll) are also very yummy, you must try them.

Tried the laksa, kolo Mee and popiah. Found them to be above average and of good quality. Popiah was fresh, kolo Mee was delicious. We were lucky to get a table on a weekday.

The Sarawak Laksa here is among the best, just the right amount of spices. Try the 'special' version with more prawns at RM 10. If you're not into prawns then the 'regular' version is just as good at RM 7. Their 'roti kahwin' and popiah is also decent enough if you're looking for side action. Parking can be a hassle,...

Choon Hui serves GREAT Laksa, the broth is tasty. However, I find the portion served in the bowl to be pretty small. There are two options, Regular for rm6 and special for rm8. I enjoyed the amount of prawns and chicken added in the bowl, but I found my bowl a bit small for the special I ordered. The kolo... More

Great little café if you are looking for a true Malaysian experience. Everything we tried was good, and the star dish here is the Laksa. We were lucky as it wasn't too busy, so we had a table and our food pretty quickly. The juices are also good and worth trying.

The laksa here was really very good, but as a consequence there was a massive queue and a wait of more than 45 minutes. The good news is that the wait for the Kolo Mee isn't quite so long, and the atmosphere is pretty good. But the star attraction is the laksa and there's just no other option than to... More

I love Sarawak Laksa and never fail to visit one of the popular laksa joints whenever I am in Kuching. The store in Choon Hui produces one of the best laksa in town! I have tasted many types of laksa in Kuching during my 2 years work assignment and each bowl of laksa is different. Therefore, the best laksa in... More

The place is famous hence crowded when we arrived. With a bit of luck, we managed to get a table. The kopitiam sells limited food which is basically Sarawak laksa, kolo mee, porridge, poh piah and toast n eggs. We tried all except the porridge. Laksa took over 30 mins to be served but it was well worth the wait.... More
