Some sell nice food but mainly places to snack, have drinks and eat ice-cream and buy some souvenirs. Colourful lights and some street music make it a pleasure to wonder around.

Enjoyed sitting at the waterfront munching as the sun set and the boats ambled past. Some tasty and good value food to be had. Try the 2 RM chocolate waffles...

The food stalls along the Esplanade offer a variety of cheap food options. Choose just one stall for your meal or sample from several stalls as we did on our evening stroll.

You can sit and relax along the riverside enjoying many delicious food and drinks. Come here in the late afternoon or evening.

The New Year Eve's celebration wasn't too rousing and crowded. There are many stalls sell foods, drinks, snacks and souvenirs. You also can buy ticket to have a boat ride on the river.

Cheap street foods are available from stalls along the river. Some of them open only at night and can get a bit busy during weekends and holidays.

I am not sure which side of the river this review iseant to be for.....I guess both. The north side of the river (Kampung gersik with the kek lapis sarawak shops, and Fort margherita) has a proper foodcourt with around 8-10 stalls. The foodcourt serves a range of everyday, local food. So you will find your laksa sarawak, mee kolok,... More

A few stalls do serve made-to-order foods like fried rice etc. Other stalls deal with mostly hotdogs and burgers. Soda drinks and snacks, mostly to while you away if you came for a stroll. Generally, the taste of the foods is acceptable. You might want to cross over by sampan (boat) to the other side of the river, a place... More

Went in a group of 4. None of the dishes ordered were appetising. Disappointing Service was rather slow and unsystematic. Orders were sent to wrong tables. Being a tourist spot, I simply cant find anything that will attract me to return. except maybe for the nearby Sarawak Lapis cakes outlets
