I went to this place a long time ago and it was a nice place. The food was nice the service was good and the environment was nice too. But my last visit really disappoints me. It's a buffet style steamboat. And you can eat all you can and the price is quite reasonable . But The food was not so fresh. There was not much choice. And the table clothes was damp when we sit at our table. The place was not so well organized . Hope the owner will try lo clean the place up .

If you have tried the BBQ in Bangkok, then thereis no reason to try it in Malaysia (Kuching at least). No one refills water for you (yes in BKK), limited choiceof food (amazing supply in BKK, free desert, free soft drink, slices of fruit, fried rice and noodles). Gas stove vs charcoal in BKK. Live band and riverviewin BKK. Now RM18 each, vs RM16.5 in BKK (of coz everything is more expensive in Malaysia)

Have nothing good to say about this place. The wind nearly blew a pot of boiling water (sitting in the middel of the tabel) over one of us. This place is chaotic and maybe not something westerners understand that well.....

Hornbills is conveniently located a 5 minute ealk from thr excellent and very affordable lodge 121.

It is self service and an outside restaurant. It is akin to the street stall atmosphere some backpackers may crave. And whilst it isn't the prettiest or cleanest place, the meat was excellent. Dont get me wrong, i didn't know what some of the meat was, but the beef and chicken were excellent.

You are given a table, so go and collect your plates and cutlery and start collecting.the food. You will be cooking it yourself, so make sure you can cook at least to a half decent level.

At only 18ringgit, it is great value for all you can eat and being outside is a fun experience.

Great to cook your own food and an exciting lively atmosphere. Good place to visit with a group of friends - especially if you like your food.
