Valentines Night ruined. My husband's main course never arrived. The manager not interested in sorting it out. Charged us full price.

An enchanting return to the restaurant after 2 decades, and it exceeded all expectations! The staff's thoughtful gesture of seating our group of elders at the grand table near the entrance set the tone for a memorable evening. Impeccable service accompanied by genuine attentiveness to...our needs made the dinner truly special. The food? Absolutely superb! We celebrated a birthday, and the staff went above and beyond, ensuring the perfect photos for the occasion. A jolly good time had by all! Highly recommend for both the cuisine and heartwarming hospitality!More

Great food and a vibrant atmosphere. We had a lovely evening. You know a place is going to be good when you see that it is always busy. That was certainly the case with The Junk.

A deceptively large restaurant. It is very easy to walk past the entrance as it is one shoplot wide. Going upstairs there is a large dining room and another room off it. The food and service is very good. We visited twice and on both...occasions the food standard was very good as well as the service. Gets busy on Saturday evening but they managed to seat all visitors. Highly recommendedMore

Had drinks here with a few friends, staff were really lovely and seems like endless rooms from places to have a drinks with 90s/00s music to full on dancefloors.

This was a fun place to go and have dinner, twice in fact, and explore all the different rooms. None of it made any sense which made it even more fun. We loved it and the food and drinks were really good. Prices were probably...on the higher end but very modest compared to our restaurants at home that do not have the same character as this place.More

Got to the restaurant and staff could not give a monkeys about us. 2 staff upstairs just stared at us and walked off without seating us. We decided to walk out and go elsewhere. Utter dump

The Junk is well and truly unique. If I lived in central Kuching it would be my 'local'. A labyrinth of small unique interconnected bars, encapsulated with a plethora of junk artefacts, The Junk has an ambience like no other. They have even managed to...smuggle a pool table in there although it must have been assembled inside. Even the toilets have a certain 'cache'. Staff are friendly and service prompt. Food is a high standard and great value for money. Music is contemporary and at a volume that means your conversation is heard. Go there!!!More

We had great food here in a cosy atmosphere with friendly service. Good wine list too. Lobster pasta is incredible good value for money. Oxtail is great.

Service and food was great. Only thing was that we were asked to move tables due to SOP. The problem was, we were already eating. And the table, three older ladies, next to us just ordered (basically no food on the table .Why didnt they...place the other diners somewhere else ( since we arrive first) or asks the table next to us to move instead of us WHEN WE WERE CLEARLY EATING. Im quite upset at the difference of treatment, given we were eating at the time.More
