This little cafe on the street sells good burgers and wraps, as well as other Arabic food. The food was delicious and quick to be served.

You have a decent outfit there. My family and I have stopped by a couple of times since 'discovering' your place a week ago despite being locals. However, one feedback tho : your kitchen seems to be always out of something. First it was beef...More

I would not go down to Kuching for an Arabic food, but this restaurant did change my mind. They serve most of the common Arabic food. My favorite is lamb kebab and Arabic rice with chicken. This restaurant is just a walk away from waterfront....More

Good lamb kebabs and falafel, little on expensive side. Service was quick, but perfect change from rice and noodles.

Sometimes it is a challenge to find good, affordable, interesting vegetarian food while traveling, but this place sure hit the spot. The veggie burger and falafel sandwiches are delicious. I see a lot of reviews mentioning a lack of flavor in the meat items -...More

Kuching has so many eating places that are simply mediocre, and this i'm afraid, is another to add to the list. Had the lamb kebab, which was devoid of good flavours, and the meat was not lean enough. The pita bread was bland and both...More

Hubbaba's is a kebab & snack shop that doesn't pretend to be more than what it is. Probably the best Kebabs you'll get in Malaysia! Fresh meats and salads, freshly baked pita bread. Also a tasty and collection of comfort foods like burgers and pizzas - also of pure meats daily fresh baked buns. Relaxed place great for grab and go with limited seating. Just opened but building a strong following. Almost all the travellers met there were referred by other travellers. Decent prices, good food. Its also a non MSG kitchen! Central location only 5 minutes walk from the Waterfront.
