My Little Kitchen is a cozy eatery downtown. The food is wonderful, tasty, and fresh! Try the soup, it is excellent!! The chef and staff are very friendly, and concern themselves with your satisfaction. Make it a point to dine at the Kuching gem! You won't regret it!

We've been travelling in SEA for a while now and after all the rice and noodles we really wanted something else. My Little Kitchens owner is Finnish and have lived in Sweden for years so he really knows how to make proper Nordic food. We ate Swedish (or Finnish ;)) meatballs with smashed potatos, vegetarian wrap and meat soup; it... More

Delicious, well thought out and delicately created by a passionate chef/owner who makes everything from scratch, free of processed and chemicals and is super friendly, hoping you enjoy eating as much as he enjoys cooking. Truly divine dining! The chocolate desert is heaven on a plate

I went there a week ago and it was great. The food was good, meatballs and potatoes (pan seared and mashed) were especially tasty. Abit pricey but probably because of the big portion of potatoes, we couldn't finish it even though it was good. The staff was friendly and asked us about the meal etc. They also gave us a... More

meatballs and the other menu selections make this a place to visit more than once. Now in a delightful location by the lakeside in chinese friendship park, its a smart little place to try something a bit different.

Nice food, a little bit pricy but everything you eat is freshly made. The chef aka owner will not tell what is it in his tasty creamy secret sauce, you only can taste it there! Mashed and pan-seared potatoes are the only side but what else you need when the best is served?

Small family owned kitchen putting quality and taste high on the agenda. We try to keep our menu short and sweet with guest dishes rotated in for something different. We serve oven roasted chicken (Scandinavian style) with rice, homemade mashed or pan seared potatoes, our very own version of Swedish Meatballs with classic brown sauce, fantastic sausages, tortilla wraps with various fillings, and an irresistible Swedish dessert Mockarutor. We are now operating our food outlet at Batik Boutique Hotel, at Jalan Padungan. Our meats and chicken suppliers are halal certified.
