I love the mushrooms pizza. Great place for couples to chill during weekend. The place decorated by a lot of unique junk.

Western Food. Each order comes in very big servings enough to serve 2 small eaters per set. Check out with the waiter first, for each portion of the meal you order.

Come with an empty stomach to feast and be merry. I been to the Junk more than 10 years ago. My recent visit did leave me disappointed. The portions are still big, food and service are great, environment is cosy. Really great value for money....More

We went here on a Saturday night. There was a band playing with 3 vocalists which was amazing. Go here if you're looking for a truly local experience. The place was packed and we were the only Western people there :)

We enjoyed our meal here, but would not say it was anything special. The portions are masive though - something to bear in mind when ordering. Nicely decorated, and easy to find. A good option if you fancy some western food.

Nice atmosphere, good affordable food (I had the pizza) Moved down to the bar on Friday evening and there was live music (after about 10.30pm) outside with outdoor seating. Had a great evening. Nice to spend an evening with locals rather than tourists too.

The Junk is an eclectic collection of five establishments carefully cultivated within the confines of the heritage buildings of Wayang Street, Kuching. With the proprietors' personal curation of actual antiquities and memorabilia over the years, The Junk houses remnants from days gone by, each with their own eccentric story to tell. Since 2002, the award-winning Junk Restaurant specialises in the fusion of Italian, Western and Asian cuisines. They also offer an impressive list of handmade pizzas, even adding their own twist to conventional toppings. Whether it is an intimate table for two or a party of 12, Junk Restaurant has several dining areas to cater to your needs. Red Room started as an after dinner lounge area. It now serves as a karaoke lounge. In 2006, Junk Bar started as something more akin to a speakeasy. It would be easy to miss this unassuming bar accessible through a hole in the wall from Red Room. Don't let the narrow walkway and rambunctious regulars intimidate you as it is perfect for quieter nights out. Since 2008, Backstage has been one of the most popular night spots in Kuching. On weekends, resident DJs spin through the night. When crowded, it looks like a party in an antique shop. Be prepared to stand as the crowd pours in throughout the night. Choose your poison and dance the night away. If you want something milder, head next door to the newly renovated Living Room. The perfect blend of a lounge and an al-fresco garden, choose to sit by the water fountain or in the actual living room on the first floor overlooking it.
