“Homely,friendly and good tasting Chinese restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Venue eatery has been around for a great many years and is located opposite the 4 Points Sheraton Hotel near the Kuching airport. You can also enter from the rear which is behind 100Yen and adjacent to Hong Leong Bank at RH Plaza. It opens daily for lunch, 12-2pm, and for dinner from 6pm till late (last customer leaves). It serves good homely, well cooked and inexpensive Chinese and local Malaysian (more like Sarawak-styled) dishes, with some fusion and local ethnic elements involved.

Specialities include the fabulous Special Singapore Bihun; Crispy Pata (Filipino styled deep fried pork knuckle), Midin salad; Fish head curry, Yam Basket, Umai (marinated slices of raw fish in spices), braised 3-layer pork, Mani-chai with egg, 3types egg with local spinach, etc etc.

The list of foods available is endless...ask and make your own if you dare!

Service can be slow during peak packed times, but food is delicious, well cooked and prices are very reasonable. The part-owner Ah Jin is there virtually most nights and may even sit down and drink with you!

During weekends reservation is suggested,otherwise walk in. Casual wear is the norm. Enjoy!

“Dine with the locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

A value for money restaurant with scrumptious yummy food. Had the pork knuckle which was served with curry sauce. I like it without dipping on the sauce. Very chewy and crunchy and just done perfectly. The oyster omelette was excellent with huge size of oyster. Claypot fish was good. The dessert 'oh nee' is well balanced of sweet and saltiness which just perfect!

“Go for the curry fish!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

It is a walking distance from Four Points hotel. There are a number of good dishes in the restaurant, but they make a mean good fish curry! You good to try that out.

“Great All Around Chinese Seafood Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

This Place is Right across the street from Four Points Sheraton! My Wife and I went to eat at 7:00 and there were a good few people in there! It took about 30 minutes to get our Pepper Crab but Boy was it the Best Crab I've had in quite some time! It's not the fanciest of places but who cares when you get 1 Kilo for about 27 USD. There Kung Pao Chicken was also Fantastic! Great Value!
