We like this place, it s a pleasure to sit there maybe just have a beer or glass of wine. The owner is very polite and happy to guide you through the menu.

Food was good though having had two different noodle dishes on two different occasions I was wondering what was the difference between them... Unfortunately one of us got sick after having a dish with prawns... But it is in a lovely location, has a good selection of food, two lovely cats, and a great book about the Brookes and the Sarawak history which you can read while waiting for your food.

We ate here twice because the food was tasty and cheap and the view of the waterfront was very pleasant. There seemed to be a shortage of better quality restaurants on the waterfront but this one ticked all the boxes. The menu is varied with local food and more Western type dishes too.

James Brooke is one of the best places to dine in Kuching. Its location is ideal, as it is just opposite the Hilton, close to the river but set gracefully in its own little garden, so very peaceful and dignified, with a choice of inside or outside seating. It is usually full of Westerners enjoying the pleasant ambience and very good cuisine. We have eaten here several times and have always been impressed by the courteous service and the delicious food.
