If you want a nice and quick meal, this is a good place to go. Besides their a la carte menu, they also offer a variety of fast food for lunch, including local dishes. They also have diverse beverage menu to choose from. I love all their fish dishes (especially the fish curry) as they are always fresh.

Quite a cozy place where you could dine quietly with your friends and family and the food is ok but a bit to the salty side.

Everything you yearn for in Sarawak is served here! And they are very tasty, hopefully no MSGs...The place has that old cafe/coffee shop setting. Quite near downtown Kuching. Service was good and fast. Price was quite above the average. But it's worth it.

Been here more than I could remember. Place is cozy and decent. I would iterate that the pansoh or chicken in the bamboo is one of the best in town. They serve many other Malaysian and local ethnic dishes making it an ideal place to bring friend from abroad to dine.

This cafe serves typical Malaysian dishes but some local favorites added. The manuk pansoh and umai are among them. It is a halal restaurant. The location is strategic on the road side with ample parking lots.

We tried the ayam pansuh with my West Malaysian friends, and they loved it. Although I personally think that the chicken and tapioca leaves are not cooked long enough in the bamboo. But taste wise, fair enough. A good option to bring Muslim friends to try out halal ayam pansuh.
