There is hype about this place - with the visit of a celebrity chef lining the walls etc - the food here is really nothing to write home about. It was bland and lacking of flavour. Not sure what else there is though. This place is in a group of a few places that is open late and has a... More

Ordered 4 dishes and was very impressed with both the mango duck salad and fettuccine carbonara with beef bacon but the fisherman's basket was a huge letdown. The waiter promised calamari, soft shell crab and fish but all we got was a huge bowl of deep fried batter dough with really dry calamari, and small crab. Very very disappointed. The... More

This is a place you can't miss. Good serving is big and the price is fair. Crew service is great. If you are looking for fushion food in Kuching, this is the best place to go.

We ate here with a group of about 13 people. The food was lovely. Salads were nice and the prawn and asparagus entrée was great. Main meals are truly huge. There was only a limited selection of cold white wine (despite a reasonable wine list, many of which were out of stock). The service was prompt and friendly. Décor is... More

The ambiance was impressive, spotted antique furniture placed strategically which I wouldn't consider as junk. Staff were friendly and attentive, very accommodating too. Had medium rib eye steak and it was prepared as I expected it, medium and most importantly, juicy. Had salmon salad too, which was really a good serving portion.

The Junk is an eclectic collection of five establishments carefully cultivated within the confines of the heritage buildings of Wayang Street, Kuching. With the proprietors' personal curation of actual antiquities and memorabilia over the years, The Junk houses remnants from days gone by, each with their own eccentric story to tell. Since 2002, the award-winning Junk Restaurant specialises in the fusion of Italian, Western and Asian cuisines. They also offer an impressive list of handmade pizzas, even adding their own twist to conventional toppings. Whether it is an intimate table for two or a party of 12, Junk Restaurant has several dining areas to cater to your needs. Red Room started as an after dinner lounge area. It now serves as a karaoke lounge. In 2006, Junk Bar started as something more akin to a speakeasy. It would be easy to miss this unassuming bar accessible through a hole in the wall from Red Room. Don't let the narrow walkway and rambunctious regulars intimidate you as it is perfect for quieter nights out. Since 2008, Backstage has been one of the most popular night spots in Kuching. On weekends, resident DJs spin through the night. When crowded, it looks like a party in an antique shop. Be prepared to stand as the crowd pours in throughout the night. Choose your poison and dance the night away. If you want something milder, head next door to the newly renovated Living Room. The perfect blend of a lounge and an al-fresco garden, choose to sit by the water fountain or in the actual living room on the first floor overlooking it.
