We went here for a few drinks and there was only one other table of people there. There were three staff and all of them were sitting down and smoking or playing on there phones. We ordered 3 drinks and the girl put the order through but then sat back down. I watched them all sit down for another 5 minutes or so when a the girl finally got up and started making them. We ordered two juices and a beer and it took at least 10 minutes for them to reach our table. On top of being lazy the staff were not at all friendly. The view of the river was the only good part of our visit here. Will not be back

I wish I read here first. Can not agree more with other reviews. Good location but service was the worst I have ever had. Not one word spoken from start to end. Many great places to eat in Kuching. This is not one of them. Manager get new staff.

We were appalled at the unfriendliness and lack of care of the waitresses at this restaurant. The food was extremely poor and the tablecloth filthy. My husband's meal arrived 20 minutes after mine and only after he asked where it was. When his black pepper lamb eventually arrived, it was cold, tough and full of bone. To add insult to injury there was no pepper in the sauce. Neither of us could eat the food. Very, very disappointing!

I cant recommend this restaurant as the food is only average at best. There were only two of us eating in the restaurant and they actually forgot one of our meals.

Dirty cloth tablecloths have been replaced with wipe off dimpled leatherette material. So no laundry required, although it gets a bit sticky :-)
The incredible lack of any attempt at service continues!
