Directed here by our homestay owner and Lonely Planet, we were really not sure what to expect. I was expecting the more market end of the fish market it had been described to me as, but it turned out to be much more open-air Cafe/restaurant. Prices were reasonable for excellent fish (800g sea-bass was 32RM/£6 and 7 large prawns 18RM) and tasty veg (fried fern, 8RM?). Would highly, highly recommend for easily the best piece of fish I have, and probably will ever have, had in a restaurant. We chose to keep the fish quite plain - opting just for sambal. Still getting used to the shrimp paste (v fishy) sambal, we were a bit taken aback when the fish came out slathered in enough sambal for 4 people to share. Luckily it wasn't cooked in the sambal and it came off easily enough. Maybe ask for sambal on the side, if you're not sure!

Lovely atmosphere with a lot of locals (midweek too). Quite an airy location atop the car park (rid yourself of any dingey, grotty car park roofs you might have in mind - this was very clean with a swanky looking cocktail Bar sharing the roof...) but lacking in a great view.

Plus side it's very easy to find - you're looking for 'TopSpot' and when they say look for the lobster sign, I think they mean the bright red neon one on top of the building!

During six days in Kuching we ate dinner four times in Top Spot which was just next door to our hotel. The food as well as prices of stalls are pretty similar to each other but we found the service at Ling Loong to be the best. Another favourite was ABC.

Be sure to taste jungle fern here. BYOB if you want to have wine with your meal. Drink stalls provide you with an ice water bucket and glasses free of charge if you order also some juice or beer.

Great butter prawns, black pepper crabs, oyster pancake and if that sounds like too much cholesterol for you, add in mixed vegetables, yam ring and szechuan soup. And to wash it all down, get the famous sugarcane coconut juice! I personally prefer the Ling Loong stall located nearer to the lift and not the far end corner Ling Loong stall. Enjoy!

Being a coeliac I have to watch what I eat. The staff did the best they could to accommodate for me. Food was of abundance- the vegetables great and the seafood cooked to perfection. Being cheap by Australian standards a bonus. Very busy though. Seems the whole of Kuching eats here. Great fresh juice too

Ling Loong have two stalls in the Top Spot eating area, a rooftop food hall on the top floor of a multi storey carpark in the centre of Kuching. We ate here several times and loved every mouthful. You select your food from the stand and they cook it and bring it to the table. The food is not expensive (neither are the drinks, come to that, but the options are limited to beer and soft drink) and it has my whole-hearted recommendation.
