Description: Winner of The Most Innovative Fusion Restaurant Awards by Tourism Malaysia in 2010 which makes us the Best Fusion Restaurant in Malaysia. We have moved to the Old Courthouse where we have taken up a block and tastefully converted into a Fusion restaurant. Exuding an ambiance of tranquility and elegance, the restaurant is without a doubt the perfect place to have romantic dinner with your loved ones, family and joyful meal with friends or special occasions like weddings, anniversary and corporate dinners.

Magenta has been around for a long time and we have been going there for years. Unlike many restaurants where food quality seem to go down after a few years, Magenta has been able to maintain their standards. Their speciality are its rib eye, linguine scallops, seafood platter, crostini and mushroom soup. Once in a while they will have off menu items like roast lamb and lobsters. Tip is to ask if they have any off menu items when ordering. The service is always excellent and the owner, Dino, happens to be a very nice chap.

It was a really nice surprise to find such a good restaurant in Borneo! We could sit outside in the garden which was, ignoring the busy traffic, pretty romantic. We tried the lamb shank with pasta, very delicious and a big portion! The kinda chicken cordon bleu like dish was also very tasty but a little small. The beef burger is, according to the staff home made, and was also very delicious. The chef seems to be French cuisine inspired. Overall we liked this place so much that we came here every evening of our stay in Kuching. The prices are maybe a little expensive for a budget trip, but worth it and after all far away from what you would pay for in a French restaurant in Europe for example. Recommended!

The staff in the restaurant were also really friendly and helpful.

I'd been meaning to go to Magenta for a while. Its in quite a lovely setting at the old court house in Kuching. The service was fine and the drinks i had were absolutely fine. The fish and chips however was dissapointing. The quality of the fish wasnt very good and the portion of chips was too small. I would go there again but i dont have great expectations for the quality of the food. Perhaps some of the italian dishes will be better.

A tip for you, whilst Magenta was very quiet on the evening i visited, the cafe/restaurant nearby - Magna Carta - was really very busy, perhaps it is better.
