“Nothing special”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

A quirky interior but the food and service seemed very average. I had the Traditional Claypot Rice which came with a seaweed soup. The claypot didn't have much meat or other content and wasn't particularly tasty.

“The best vegetarian dumplings”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

I ate here several times during my stay in Kuching and loved it. Down to earth with a really nice atmosphere. The honey and lime juice was delicious and so refreshing after walking in the 30+ degree heat. The vegetable dumplings were the best i've ever tasted. So fresh. Staff very welcoming and friendly. If you are vegetarian just let them know as some of the vegetable dishes have meat in them. I told them I was veggie and they were so nice about it. A gem!

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

This place is very well decorated inside - it is like a little bamboo garden which is lovely and incredibly relaxing. The food is very good and well prices and the drinks are delicious (particularly the passion green tea!). Food is freshly cooked - noodles are delicious and not greasy at all (as we have found in some places in Malaysia), steamed dumplings were great too. Service is very quick and all staff are friendly and attentive. Free Wi-Fi here too.
