“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

A few minutes walk from the centre of town, this tastefully decorated shophouse restaurant makes a pleasant change from most of the local establishments.

Food is a modern take on Asian/Fusion, and tastes as good as it looks.

Staff are pleasant and efficient, prices are slightly higher than average but represent good value for money.

Worth a visit if you are in Kuching.

“Nice place, shame about the food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

From the outside, this restaurant looks empty and unwelcoming, but don’t be taken in by first impressions. Once through the doorway and past the front reception, you cross a charming little stream on stepping stones, and find a busy environment full of young locals enjoying themselves.
We were lucky to find a table as it was very busy, but once seated, quickly shown the menu and offered drinks.
We asked advice on the menu, and settled for crispy noodles with prawns and crispy noodles with vegetables. For a starter we had seaweed with chicken “floss”.
Overall, we weren't terribly excited about the food, the vegetarian noodle dish was slimy and uninspiring, We were however pleasantly surprised about the bill. The noodles were 10 MR each. The service was quick and very helpful. Overall feeling was that we made a bad choice of food, and would love to give it another go.

I hope you found this review helpful happy to answer questions.

“Best food in town”

Great sharing plates, really varied flavours, good sized dishes, helpful staff. We fluked a table here on New Years Eve and loved everything about the place. Interesting decor and memorable food.

“Tasty Food in the Heart of Kuching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

Again in Kuching, we went of course to Bla Bla Bla. It's centrally located in the heart of Kuching. A narrow, long restaurant between two streets with some stepping stones over a pond, with a corrugated metal roof. When it rains, the sound is all the music one needs.
Very friendly reception and efficient service. Nicely set tables in a more or less 'western' way. Good menu and even a wine list.
The cuisine is superb. We had deliciously roasted duck, crisp and succulent. As sides a delicious dish of butter-fried fern fronds (midin) and a tasty anchovy-aubergine salad. Washed down with a nice bottle of Hawkes Bay Pinot Noir. All was served with stye and elegance and a pleasant flow of words.
Unbelievably, the bill came to less than 50 euros.
Highly recommended.

“Fancy restaurant with sophisticated ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

Bla bla bla has a beautiful interior and the general feeling is of fine dining. Meals typically range from 30-60 ringgit, so it's a little pricey by Kuching standards, but the food menu is good. Having been here more than once I can say that the experience is good, especially if you enjoy fusion food. Up there with Junk in terms of quality, although if you want more westernized food head there.

Great place for a family meal or date.
