Very pleasant dinner. Lovely location on the river. We found the service to be good and all meals were enjoyed. We particularly enjoyed the Laksa both the Wild Borneo and Kuching. Slightly more expensive than local restaurants we tried so more aimed at the tourist market but very reasonable price overall for the food and service

This small restaurant is situated on the waterfront.
They have a wide range of asian and western food.Food was always good and hot.
The staff were really friendly and helped with the menu when you were not sure of the ingredients.
The best place to eat in kutching

Besides ambiance we can't say much. Their coffee brewing machine broke down and their cakes were unimpressive but rather expensive. Perhaps we'll come again when the coffee machine is fixed and try their food so that we can get to enjoy the cosy surroundings.

Location tells the story here, perfect spot. Nothing particularly interesting on the menu ... But a reasonable range of eclectic average food. We did find a couple of rotten prawns in one dish! But managed to avoid a digestive disaster just in time.

Would not complain at all about the superb location and very nice food we had at the restaurant, however, the food arrived very quickly which just made us think about whether it had been freshly prepared - we were probably spoilt by the seeing food prepared before our eyes at other place we ate. Great tasting though, well presented and good value. Would definitely recommend others to give it a go.
