“Love the laksa and malay food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014

The laksa is not too spicy for foreigners. My kids age under 10 love it! One of the better laksa I've had in Kuching. It was pretty hard to get seats on weekends. The malay food stall was good but not open on Sunday. I like the mee jawa with satay or mee goreng.There was a stall selling traditional delicacies such as fried carrot/ yam cake.

It's a place for food. Not smiles! Kuching food stalls hardly come with smiles!

“Good Laksa and Soya Milk Drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

Had the Laksa Sarawak and Soya Milk Drink with family in this cafe.

The cafe is the old traditional cafe in Kuching with fans to cool the area. Otherwise, still hot within the cafe.

Soya Milk drink is of quality and sugar to be added as required (provided on table).

The Laksa is one of the better ones in Kuching. Cost of Laksa is RM6. Three reasonable size prawns given.

Parking may be an issue if driving to the place but weekend is easier given less work or school traffic.

“Excellent Local Specialties”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

I had the Sarawak Laksa and the Kolo mee and both tasted really good. The mee goreng there looked really good as well but since I was alone, I had to give it a miss.

“Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Laksa was ok. So were the kolo mee and mee jawa. We ordered porridge for my son and he seemed to enjoy it. The downside is, it was too hot inside and I was actually expecting better food after reading all the reviews. Don't what the raves were all about... The price was reasonable but I don't know, is it me or people here just don't know how to smile more?

“Nice laksa but long wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The stalls serve the local delicacies such as Sarawak Laksa and Konlo Mee which were tasty. However the crowd was large and we had to wait for a table to be ready and then we had to wait again for the food to be served.
