Lovely restaurant in wood by the river in the Malay quarter. The place is simple but charming and pleasantly decorated, the customers almost exclusively local. The menu is in Malaysian and nobody speaks English but if you refer to the glossary in your guidebook you...More

Local food, Ayam pansoh or Manok Pansoh is good. We had ordered some main dish grill lamb and grill chicken, it was very spicy because the gravy was pour on top. It will blow your top. Environment is nice, good ambient and nice wooden setup....More

Cross the river to the other side of Kuching and you find this restaurant behind the food court. If you like hot and spicy, try the Nasi Ayam Ketok. A definite must to try. There are also lots of seafood dishes.

Great place recommended to us by another traveller in Borneo. The barbecue lamb was amazing (spicy) as were scallops, and Tomyan soup. Nice setting across the river behind the kampung.

My colleague and I had a feast here for dinner yesterday! We tried the ayam pansoh (chicken cooked in bamboo), umai (raw fish salad), midin belacan (wild fern in shrimp paste) and grilled scallop. Each dish was a culinary explosion, with different flavours. Never had...More

The location can be a bit tricky. Need to use waze to get there at least once. Back to the restaurant, it was beautiful decorated in local native designs and architecture. It felt like it is in a long house, hence, the name barok. The...More
