Feel sorry for the waiters. They must have hated us, but we really liked it here. As much that the kids wanted to go back for a second dinner. Good portion size, great variety to choose between. Very charming interior! Definetely recommend it!

This is an interesting place to go to. It's a restaurant and bar. One of the most happening places in Kuching nightlife. The place offers western food, good music and a party atmosphere. Most of the local who's who will frequent this place.

Went on a Monday evening, food was ok but not cheap. Waited over 1.5 hrs from ordering to getting food which wasn't great but it has a nice atmosphere.

Amazing decor - very good atmosphere. Service was attentive and polite. Really good Western food - a surprisingly good salad, and fantastic pizza. Drinks were somewhat adventurous and too sweet (ask for a less sweet version if you're not accustomed to Malaysian tastes).

If you are missing eating some first class food that is not necessarily soup, rice or noddles on your travels in Borneo then this is the place for you. It was not cheap for Malaysia but could hold its own in London or Paris. We...More

The Junk is an eclectic collection of five establishments carefully cultivated within the confines of the heritage buildings of Wayang Street, Kuching. With the proprietors' personal curation of actual antiquities and memorabilia over the years, The Junk houses remnants from days gone by, each with their own eccentric story to tell. Since 2002, the award-winning Junk Restaurant specialises in the fusion of Italian, Western and Asian cuisines. They also offer an impressive list of handmade pizzas, even adding their own twist to conventional toppings. Whether it is an intimate table for two or a party of 12, Junk Restaurant has several dining areas to cater to your needs. Red Room started as an after dinner lounge area. It now serves as a karaoke lounge. In 2006, Junk Bar started as something more akin to a speakeasy. It would be easy to miss this unassuming bar accessible through a hole in the wall from Red Room. Don't let the narrow walkway and rambunctious regulars intimidate you as it is perfect for quieter nights out. Since 2008, Backstage has been one of the most popular night spots in Kuching. On weekends, resident DJs spin through the night. When crowded, it looks like a party in an antique shop. Be prepared to stand as the crowd pours in throughout the night. Choose your poison and dance the night away. If you want something milder, head next door to the newly renovated Living Room. The perfect blend of a lounge and an al-fresco garden, choose to sit by the water fountain or in the actual living room on the first floor overlooking it.
