To my shame by week 3 I'd had enough of rice. Rice for breakfast, rice for lunch, rice for dinner. I'll admit it, I was a less than intrepid explorer. And for my two children the prospect of yet more Nasi Lemak was too much...More

Nice cosy place with some interesting stuff on the walls. Thinking that the Junk might be a chinese restaurant - but no- Pizzas etc- nice enough but don't as i did ask for extra cheese as your pizza will be swimming in it!!

We were recommended to try the Lemon Grass Chicken which was excellent and we also had the Red Wine Duck which was very well cooked and tender. We were warned the portions were big and so they proved with two large rolls of boned chicken...More

Pizza was yummy and flavourful. We chose to combine two flavours in one pizza. Opt to be seated upstairs as there are cooler air-conditioned areas with a cosy dining environment.

Love the concept. The front part of the cafe is good for dining in with family and friends. At the back, there's terrace which the vibe is great to have couple of drinks with friends! Pizza was good too

The Junk Restaurant has been around for a while and it has taken its time to carefully craft a reputation among Kuching's boutique restaurants for fine western dining with a local twist. For all its name, the ambience is not quite a junk shop but...More

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.
