“Bland wholemeal bread”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

I really wanted to like Aloha, as there is a distinct lack of quality bread makers in Kuching. Most simply churn out factory style tasteless loafs, that do little justice to bread making. So when I heard about Aloha and its lofty reputation, I was cautiously optimistic.

I therefore made a visit to try out their wholemeal bread. Unfortunately, it had too mild a taste of wholemeal and was ultra soft - therefore varied little from what is sold in certain other chain bakers in the city. Its a shame really, that really good quality wholemeal bread cannot apparently be acquired in Kuching. Possibly its just something that doesn't agree with enough locals taste buds.

On a more positive note, whilst i did not sample the cakes - some of them did look well presented and tasty. Maybe another visit will see me choose something else instead of the bland tasting bread.

“Great Place to get your Pastries”
Reviewed 4 August 2012 via mobile

Aloha is one of the best bakeries to get your pastries in Kuching. The owner Mr. Goh is a really nice guy. I got them to cater for my wedding refreshment after the ceremony.

The most famous item here is their chicken pie. They are really good. I also love their beef pie which is a lot bigger. Their orange muffin is juicy and fantastic. I don't usually see sandwiches on display but you can arrange and order from them. They are very good. My wife always buy bread from them. They are bigger in size for some reasons.

Expect to pay more than your usual TAKA or MITA. The quality is totally different.

“Best chicken pie!”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 via mobile

Love the chicken pie there - must try! The other stuff are ok, nothing spectacular. It's near the Friendship Park, and loads other eateries nearby.
