Visited here few days ago. Good environment, price reasonable and foods served was good. Love the taste of the teas. Has insufficient number of staff, slow customer service.

We ate here for as a fmaily of and enjoyed our meal. We had wide variety of food and shared everything. I've read that there is problems with service here but we had very good service although it wasnt that busy. They have a huge choice of beers which is unusual for Borneo. We had the 1kg Burger, Sausage Platter,... More

Great selection of beers Of course the menu speaks for itself... A whole range of mouth watering, finger licking greatness of steaks, chops, Western BBQ, Mexican menu and others. Have fun dining here!!

The environment is pleasant and the owner has put effort into revitalising the decor. However the food quality is inconsistent. Although the portions are large, at times the quality control leaves much to be desired. Service is also hit and miss unfortunately. Sausages are pretty good as they are probably made elsewhere. Don't bother ordering the Porkies Salad, that was... More

Went there at about 6pm, so the dinner crowd wasn't there yet...the place appeared nice, waiters not so friendly though. I ordered the pork ribs, which is supposed to be their speciality but I was sorely disappointed when I saw it. Presentation wise, it just looks like some ribs dumped onto the plate. Meat was tough and not tender as... More

This restaurant is a classic example of a misunderstood concept. Porkies could be a massive success, but it's not. Owners find a smart concept from Europe and runs is as a local coffee shop, result is total disaster. We ordered steaks and mash as side order and nachos as starter. After 10 minutes we where told that they only had... More

This place is laid back. They have an excellent choice of local and International beers. The food is OK. The burgers are for me the better choice rather than steak, etc. On game night it becomes very lively and there is a great vibe, especially if you are a Man United fan. All in all a very nice joint to... More

If I could give it zero star, I would. I have been living in Kuching for 7 months now and have tried many restaurants. Porkies is probably one of the worst in terms of food and service. We went there at a non busy time where there were only a couple tables. We waited 45 minutes for my dish to... More

Rude uninterested staff service terrible my wife and I ordered the same dish they were served 45 minutes apart. The waiter was rude when asjed and said I told you i ordered two and walked away. The long list of beers is impressive but only 2 types were actually available at a very high price. Food is very average but... More
