Lovely place to sit and have drinks during the day. An old high ceilinged colonial building with courtyard in front surrounded by trees keeping the traffic noise down. They put out mosi coils as the sun sets.

Wifi was good (it isnt everywhere for Apples), and I sat and caught up with some work on my one month trip to Borneo. Much more enjoyable than sitting in the office.

They were happy to keep refilling my spiced lemon tea with hot water for free - the chilli in the tea went a long way. I didn't eat, but what I saw looked well done, though largely western and a bit limited.

Such a great location and it could be fabulous, however some money needs to be spent on it. The toilet like wasn't working when we were there and the menu was quite basic. Such a beautiful building. A nice place to go for a quick drink and to check your emails whilst wandering around Kuching.

For god sake, burghers of Kuching spend some money to preserve/lift this potentially beautiful and historic old building back to life.

Could be fantastic. Is nearing decrepit.

Restaurant / Cafe areas have so much potential but are run like a roadside stall. Tourist information barely manned. Building itself starting to crumble.

..not a lot else to hold the interest. Having just eaten before visiting the Courthouse, food and drink weren't required. However I thought a look inside the Tourist Information Office may be worthwhile but unfortunately not so. The one member of staff present when I visited was busy with another couple so I looked around the brochures on display and didn't find anything paricularly worthwhile. I aquired more comprehensive information on a visit to Lyns Tandoori restaurant in the form of a small brochure
