A small and simple restaurant at the beginning op Carpenter Street, Borneo Delight has plenty of options to choose from. The Sarawak Laksa is especially good. The fried noodles were good too. Nice atmosphere. Seems to be a family run business. They do takeaway as well.

Had the laksa and it was okay - lacking a little in flavour and spice. Also not much substance to it - bean sprouts, noodles, a few tiny bits of chicken and two prawns. Needed some extra kick, and some veggies.

We ate here expecting some good food. We where very disappointed with what we got served. The fried rice had a stone/rock in it that could easily have taken out a tooth! Beside the rock it wasn't that tasty. Would rather go to some of the small hawkers that takes pride in every dish!

Great food at great prices. Emphasis is on fresh and speed to serve. We had our food within a few minutes. We got the Sarawak Laksa which was delicious. Great little place all round. Will be back.

Nice Malay menu. The laksa was one of the greatest I've had. Super recommend this place! Nice vibe, the brothers are nice and helpful, the food is tasty and fresh. Lovely spot.

Not quite sure why this is so highly rated. I have lived in Kuching for 4 months, and for me, the food at Borneo Delight is decent at best. There are a lot of other places that serve much better local food at the same price or cheaper. I had yellow curry noodles, and I didn't really like it. It... More

Good and cheap local food, like Sarawak laksa and fried kuey teow, and which is centrally located along the Waterfront. Good place to go especially if you don't know which coffeeshops are open (their hours are unpredictable).

I can't believe this Malaysian chef sell all this wonderful food so cheap. I love food and I try a lots of restaurants in Kuching. This small place (very well located) is probably the best for the price ! Even if the price double I will continue to come and enjoy so good flavor. I think I will come every... More
