Nice ambience to enjoy the food. The price is affordable. you can try Sarawak traditional cusine here such as ayam pansoh, umai ikan and many more. I loved the grilled mussles. The butter prawn was not nice and soggy.

This place is a must go if you are in Kuching. Even thou I'm back at home for 2 days already, the food taste still lingers within me! Authentic Sarawak food which I've never tasted before and fell in love with it after my first try.

Went here several times with my friends. Even my local friends have never been here. I love the Umai Udang, Manuk Pansuh, Ayam Bakar and Grilled Mussel. This restaurant has a nice ambience and you can opt for floor seating dining table too. The only downside is that sometimes the service is slow. Perhaps because the place is always full... More

We visited this restaurant on April 2015. Love the ambiance as it is the traditional barok house. Love their umai udang, because this is my first time tasted it. Their midim vegetable also quite unique as it looks alike pucuk paku. We try ayam pangso which is one of famous local cuisine and found that it is tasty and have... More

The ambiance is unique and traditional. But the food didn't meet my expectation. The Mee kolok is too pricy and the portion is way too small for the given price, and the ayam penyet is not as tasty as the ones they serve in town.

We had the Seafood platter for two and the food was good and plentiful and the price was reasonable. However, if we were to go there again I would definitely order the food being barbequed. It looked and smell delicious and I regretted not ordering from there. The other suggestion I would make is to sit downstairs as it was... More

Getting there taking the sampan ferry from across the Hilton was more interesting than the meal. No alcohol.

The location was relatively easy to find, same row as Mira Cake House (that sells Sarawak Kek Lapis), go towards the end and you will find the shop. There are various Sarawakian delicacies available there, i.e.: 1. Umai fish and prawn, a native dish of Sarawak, is raw fish/prawn cooked not with heat but only with the acidity of lime... More
