this is a great place to bring people to come if you never have some of the dayak food before, the decor is very typical dayak and cafe fusion. food wise is not too bad , but something can be better and less oily

Was there for the first time and the food doesn't taste as good. Been eating natives food in villages and festival, but the ones in the restaurant can't even compete . Next, it's so hard to get the staff attention. The waitress is always out of the restaurant entertaining her friend or her phone . Thus, I must say for... More

Try the bamboo chicken which is nice and the local wine (tuak). I was skeptical on local iban food at beginning, but i must say the taste is real nice. The pork is nice and tender as well. The art photo in the shop will bring you to the local Ibanese people.

Good design and plenty of car parking space outside. But food are over priced and portion only for 1-2 person.

We both liked this place where they serve traditional dayak food, and my favorite is the jungle fern. Vegetarian choices here. I also tried the rice wine, and loved it! The atmosphere is good in this place.

Seriously, when you walk into a restaurant and the staff (ie tattooed girl) can't be bothered to be welcoming from the outset it really does set the tone for the meal. As westerners we didn't really feel welcome which is a shame as Kuching had been kind to us. Anyway, some of the food was pretty good. The tilapia whole... More

It's my second visiting Dyak. Totally opposite experience. We made a reservation as the first time it was busy when I were there. We were welcoming by the waitress who is not friendly and warm. While we are ordering, she is sniffing! Oh dear....what about the food!! The service level of the staff is killing the business! Food wasn't as... More

Overpriced, overrated mediocre local food. Much more choices available else where. The only thing worth mentioning is the service - friendly and welcoming.
