A great place to have lunch or dinner with an old colonial feel. Very good value laksa and great vodka and fresh lime. Service was slow but the staff were lovely.

This is a nice restaurant, the food is good, staff friendly and helpful and you can relax with a nice view over the river. Recommend the spring rolls.

This is a lovely place to sit and rest and be able to have a cool drink and cake whilst watching the wonderful life of the Kuching water front pass you by. Kuching is such a great city to visit.

This restaurant is lovely in a gorgeous setting just off the river. Feels very comfortable and welcoming to foreign visitors.
we went twice, first time for a drink which was lovely. Service was a bit lacking to be honest on that day. But we loved the place and decided to try dinner. Food was excellent, staff recognised us and were more friendly and chatty and we had a wonderful evening. Portion sizes very generous. recommended.

Excellent Laksa, good price and nice location on the waterfront. Also, great selection of cakes for those with a sweet tooth!
