Would rank this between Average and Very Good - but decided to go with Very Good, considering their different atmosphere and speciality dishes.
Tried several items on their menu -
Nasi Ayam Penyet (really good BBQ chicken! - this is the one dish you must order here)
Umai ikan (raw fish marinated in lime juice and chillies - one of the best umai I've tasted)
Butter Prawn (this was quite disappointing)
Baby Kailan (Ok)
Nasi Goreng Kampung (strange, not the normal nasi goreng kampung - doesn't have anchovies and kangkung like the previous review stated)
Bill for 4 people - 2 nasi ayam penyet (RM 9 each), umai ikan (RM10), butter prawn (medium size plate, RM24), baby kailan (medium, RM18 - VERY OVERPRICED FOR VEGETABLES!), nasi goreng kampung (RM7.50) and drinks came up to RM83.90 - quite pricey, as servings are not large.
The restaurant is a wooden kampung house - interesting, with traditional music playing on the speakers.
Service is not speedy - there can be many people eating here. The owner is very friendly, he was very patient in giving directions (we drove there and I was not familiar with the area). and yes.. mosquitoes can be a problem, so bring repellent if you're really particular.
As advised by the previous reviews, take the sampan from Kuching Waterfront - at the sampan "station" at the Rainforest Cafe. It should only cost you 50 cents per person. the last sampan runs at 12 midnight, so don't worry about not being able to catch a boat back.
Overall, I'd say.. go for the Nasi Ayam Penyet and the Umai.. don't order other dishes unless you're willing to fork out more money to try.
